Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief

When Percy Jackson finds out that he is the son of a Greek God, he is immediately sent to Camp Half-blood, a camp for demigods! He meets a few new friends including: Luke, son of Hermes, and Annabeth, daughter of Athena. But when one of the Big Three (Hades, percy jPoseidon and Zeus) claim him as their son, Percy gets wrongly accused of stealing Zeus’ master bolt!! Zeus’ master bolt is what starts all thunderstorms and is a colossal cylinder of electric power! But with Hades’ warrior guards (the Furies) trying to exterminate them at their very move and constant warnings from strange creatures, Percy and his friends are swept up into a world of treason and deadly secrets where nothing is at as it seems…

I really like this book because it is written in a very sarcastic way and it’s very funny. I think that this is probably the best book I’ve ever read! I think that the description is very good and it really helps you imagine what it is like. I would recommend reading the whole series first then watching the films because it might spoil how you imagine Percy and his friends and the gods look like. I wasn’t a very big fan of reading before I read this but now I am addicted to the series. If someone asked me to pick a book, I would instantly dive for Percy Jackson. The books in the series are:

I hope you like them!

I’m a teenager from Manchester, and a proud Hufflepuff. I like oversized jumpers, indie music you’ve probably not heard of, and books. Honestly, any books I can get my hands on but my personal favourites are fantasy, mystery or your classic teenage romance (it’s ironic I know – but you can’t really go wrong with ‘A Fault in Our Stars’)! I’m always being told to go and ‘be active’ or something instead of sitting in my room reading and listening to the Smiths, but honestly I don’t see the point. Why would I want to go for a run when I could be reading Rainbow Rowell or Good Omens. And it’s Morrisey for god’s sake. So, I decided to do something with the growing piles of books in my room… and you’re reading the product! It’s a lot more interesting than I thought it would be and I really enjoy it – and I hope you do too. I try to write a review after I’ve read the book each week every Saturday, but no promises! The aim is hundreds and thousands of books (see what I did there?) but I’m not quite there. Yet.

    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
