Okay, so this is pretty early, so just deal with me here. This month, I actually started a bunch of books.
Book one: Cloaked by Alex Flinn
This book (so far) is about a 17 year old boy named Johnny Marco who’s family has a long history in the shoe repair business. One day, when princess Victoriana, a princess from Aloria, is staying in the hotel where Johnny’s shop is, Johnny is put to a quest by the princess herself! Johnny has to find Phillipe, Victoriana’s brother, who was turned into a frog by an evil witch. Johnny has many problems throughout the story, for example, when he got kidnapped by the evil witch, and when he was nearly trampled by giants in the Keys.
So far, I’m really enjoying this book. I am 57% finished (thank you, Goodreads). I do not like Victoriana’s character because she and Johnny are 17 years old, and she told Johnny that if he finds Phillipe, then she would marry him. First of all, they’re not even adults, so they cannot get married yet, second of all, They’re 17! they’re so young, and definitely not ready to share their life with someone else yet, if they’re still figuring out their own, and finally, why would Victoriana, a PRINCESS, want to marry a low life, shoe maker who has little to no money, and works in a hotel? No offence to anyone, but I think that that has very little possibility.
Book 2: Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods by Rick Riordan, illustrated by John Rocco
this book is basically stories about the 12 Olympian Gods, written in Percy Jackson (from the book series’ Percy Jackson and the Olympians and the Heroes of Olympus) perspective.
I really like the way Rick Riordan writes Percy’s character. His character is so relatable to my age group. The way Rick writes Percy’s character is like he understand what it is like being our age, and he can connect to us in certain ways. He truly understand what it feels like to be a teenager.
The words Rick uses when he is writing in a characters perspective is like he is that character. He is funny when he writes as Percy. Greek Gods is a Hilarious book so far, and I am lovin’ it (*INSERT: McDonalds theme here*). I am currently 72% finished.
