okay let’s talk books. are you one of those types who feels an immediate sense of comfort when you walk into a bookstore? or do you often claim that barnes & noble is your favorite store? and you have this sort-of issue where you’re always buying books even if you never read them?
whelp that’s me! a bonafide book nerd.
i’m mary lynn and this is my space to vent. welcome.
i have been book-obsessed for about seven years now, but obviously over the years my tastes have varied and changed. no worries, we are going to cover all genres here. as a nineteen-year-old with a laptop and a car, books can be surprisingly hard to find. i’m a cover and synopsis type of gal, yet sometimes these things can be less than satisfactory. so i know how hard it can be to find some really good fiction, which i fully believe is something that we all need.
and here, i will be your supplier with things like recommendations and book reviews and all sorts of book-nerdy things. i hope you enjoy.
today, we are starting with my twelve-year-old self because she was great. and little twelve-year-old me was obsessed with PERCY JACKSON by rick riordan.
(here are the original covers for the five novels)
these novels are awesome. seriously. they are filled with excellent dialogue, kick-ass adventures, cool-as-cucumber characters, and the best part is i got to read them as i grew up (in the first book percy is twelve too aka awesomesauce).
i read these like last year and they were still just as great the first time around for various excellent reasons, but i shall list some of my faves:
also, they recently recovered the novels and they look epic. rick riordan has written other series based off mythological legends that are definitely worth being checked out. thanks guys, look out for more book recs coming your way.
p.s. me and aubrey are deeply in love
documenting the fun years.
