Mini Review + In My Mailbox


The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

The Lightning Thief was one of those books I thought I would never read. It's too much like Harry Potter, there's too many books in the series how would I ever find time? But on a whim (and for $6) I picked this up in Wal-Mart and I'm really glad that I did! It's funny and original and action packed! I loved that Medusa had a statue garden emporium, and honestly, I didn't even see that coming. Grover is now one of my favorite characters ever. I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about mythology in a fun, fast way. I picked up the next book in the series and I'm sure I'll be reading the rest! I'm also using this book for my Middle Grade Reading Challenge. If you haven't read this, I highly suggest picking it up now! 4.5

The Summoning
by Kelly Armstrong

This was another on a whim pickup at Wal-Mart...(how I do love that store). I've heard great things about it and I'm really excited to start reading it (after, of course, the bazillion other books I have to read first)


The Naughty List by Suzanne Young

A secret society of girls catching cheaters. Now that sounds like fun, right? I'm reading this now and it's so fun and light. It makes me want to go out there and kick some cheater butt!

Crash Into Me by Albert Borris

This one is about 4 teens who go on a road trip and on the end of that road trip all plan to commit suicide...but will they find something worth living for on their way? Wow. This is going to be one of those hard to get through novels but I'm hoping it's worth it!

So that's what I got/what I'm reading. What are you all reading this week?
