Books of 2011 - Book 26
Somehow it feels very fitting that this was the last book I read this year. I think it might be because the first book was the first one I read, first one that wasn’t forced on me by school anyways.
This sequel was absolutely brilliant. I got it for christmas and hadn’t even meant to read it this quickly (finished it in an evening and a day) but it just gripped me right from the start. I probably would have stayed up to finish it that first evening if it hadn’t been the 30th and I knew I’d never stay awake very long into the new year if I stayed up late the night before as well. And I just love greek mythology so this series is extra awesome for me. I’m kind of like Annabeth in my knowledge of the mythology, I always feel like Percy’s kind of an idiot for not knowing what/who some things are XP
Anyways, the story was brilliant and I loved the new character of Tyson and the closer look it gave of Clarisse. Also the ending, light knows I wasn’t planning on buying a new book so short after christmas but since I got one I already had I’ll definitely be exchanging it for the next book in the series, if I can find it in bookstores here anyways x.x
And so that was my last book read in the year 2011. I had hoped to manage more, but I guess there’s always next year. I mean… this year. So that’s my new year’s resolution this time around I guess, to read more books in 2012 than I did in 2011.
