Legend Trilogy (Review)

Title: Legend Trilogy

Author: Marie Lu

Published: 2013

 

The legend trilogy is by far one of the best trilogies I have ever read.

Picture not mine!

Of course, I've never read too many trilogies because I stick to series. And nobody knows why, even me!

 

The Legend trilogy is a Sci-fi futuristic-y story which of course involves romance. (What book does not?)

 

It begins with the 'Legend' Daniel Altan Wind (a.k.a. Day) is a suspect for killing the 'Prodigy' June's brother, Metias. Then she went off a hunt to find Day.

 

I'll leave the rest for you to read. I don't want to spoil you, of course.

 

I flipped through this book because it's SO amazing that you'll be thinking all day with the plot. I cannot believe myself when I said, "WOW." to a book and that's hardly something that makes a book special.

 

It leaves me speechless.

 

I don't have it with many books and I'm amazed how Marie Lu came up with these ideas.

 

I was so excited when I met her in person.

 

Yes! I met our Elector Primo Marie Lu last November!

 

And I think that's all I can give you.Photo not mine again!

 

Too short? Read the book then! It'll leave you ...

BLOGGING?!

I am seriously a lazy person.

 

There I've said it.

BUT, there are one exemption: I don't get lazy when I am doing what I love.

 

Yes, I've been to Video tutorials, this and that. But I never really tried blogging.

 

(But Tumblr is kinda like 'blogging'.)

 

YES, I know Tumblr is kind of like blogging, but my version of blogging is doing reviews.

 

I love seeing booktubers do these all the time and read their thoughts about a book that I've been wanting to read. To feel their emotions through letters and words.

 

For me, it's a lot of fun. And when I mean 'fun', I mean 'I want to try that'! So here I am writing my second blog post on this site.

 

I've been debating with myself (like most of the time) to which site should I use for my blogging. Obviously I considered the site 'Blogspot' or 'Blogger' because that's the easiest. But I am having a hard time customizing stuff there, so I said "Why not on Booklikes? I've started there, why not continue it?" and ladies and gentlemen, that's how I'M back.

 

Of course, writing stuff with my own opinions are sometimes hard, sometimes not.

 

"PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT" They said. So here I am, practicing.

Don't give up!

Yaaaaaay!

 

Blood of Olympus

(Source: rickriordan.com)Title: Blood of Olympus

Author: Rick Riordan

Published: October 7, 2014

 

Sypnosis (Goodreads):

Though the Greek and Roman crewmembers of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen—all of them—and they're stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood—the blood of Olympus—in order to wake.

The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood. The Roman legion from Camp Jupiter, led by Octavian, is almost within striking distance. Though it is tempting to take the Athena Parthenos to Athens to use as a secret weapon, the friends know that the huge statue belongs back on Long Island, where it "might" be able to stop a war between the two camps.

The Athena Parthenos will go west; the Argo II will go east. The gods, still suffering from multiple personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of young demigods hope to persevere against Gaea's army of powerful giants? As dangerous as it is to head to Athens, they have no other option. They have sacrificed too much already. And if Gaea wakes, it is game over.

 

 

So, as we ALL know that the Blood of Olympus is the last book in the Heroes of Olympus Series by Rick Riordan which, kind of, want to make me cry while reading the summary.

 

If you haven't read, heck, haven't heard about this series, well where have you been?

 

This books gives me mixed beautiful emotions (don't worry) and I'm still on the mourning period (as others call it) just because it's the end but not totally the end. Do you get my point here?

 

First of all, let us talk about Rick's Author's note which states:

"To my wonderful reader,

Sorry about that apology for that last cliffhanger.

I'll try to avoid cliffhangers in this book.

Well, except for maybe a few small ones . . .

because I love you guys."

We definitely do love you too, Uncle Rick :)

 

I just want to share to those people that still haven't read the series to watch out for this magnificent, awesome, sassy, troll Uncle Rick Riordan (I still don't know why we call him Uncle). If you do enter this fandom, dear reader, don't say I didn't warn you.

 

All in all, this is a very good book! I am very happy how it turned out, but Rick will always be a troll and we have to deal with it.

 

If you like to learn more about Greek Mythology with some modern technology and lives involved? Also, with some sweet romance in the air going on? Or great adventures up ahead?

 

You should definitely try this series out.

 

Nothing much to say because I am speechless and I totally love this book. I definitely suggest that you read the first books first before reading the last (duh.) because this will totally get your heart :)

 

 

HAPPY READING!!!
