1. Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan

I have decided that this is the series that really got me interested in books and reading. Holy crap, Rick Riordan is a genius! I always recommend his books when patrons come into the library I work at and am struggling on getting a kid to read. Anyways, how could Percy and the gang not fit into this?

Anyways, the three W’s are:

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Things That Will Make Me Instantly/NOT Instantly Want to Read a Book

Top Ten Tuesday is a wildly popular meme brought to us by The Broke and the Bookish. This week I am doing something different. I missed last week (I was lazy) so this week I am gonna mash up the two. So…

April 25:Top Ten Things That Will Make Me Instantly NOT Want To Read A Book (topic originally done back in 2013) — tell us all your book turn offs!

Plus! Top Ten Things That Will Make Me Instantly Want to Read a Book

With out further ado, here’s my list of things that make me want to read a book:

1. Pretty covers

I fall in love so quickly with book covers. Just love ’em. Lately, the ones that just have text in a cool font and nice layout have really caught my eyes.

2. Zombies

If you have read other posts, you’ll probably be able to tell that I’m a huge zombie fan. So naturally, if a book has got zombies in it I’m gonna want to read it.

Review: Penryn & the End of Days Series

51z2bddb4n5l 17849112 18500665

Penryn & the End of Days (Angelfall, World After, End of Days)

Susan Ee

Young Adult/Fantasy/Paranormal>Angels

Penryn is trying to survive. Because after the angels came to destroy the modern world there are no rules. Streets are ruled by gangs and angels are hunting for humans. When her sister is kidnapped Penryn will do everything she can to find her even if it means working with the enemy. Everything could happen in this new dangerous world.

I’m gonna do something a little different for these three books. Instead of doing individual reviews, I’m gonna review them as a whole series. This is gonna be a crapshoot, as I have no idea what I am doing.

This is a pretty good series. Each book was great in its own way but also fit together really well. The first two in the series was a re-read, I read them probably a couple of years ago. In the last 1 or 2 weeks I reread them so I remembered what the heck was going on before I read the last. They weren’t as great as I remembered them being but they were still definitely enjoyable. I also think I reviewed Angelfall a ways back, but when I started over the blog I deleted it. *facepalm*
