I read, for the first time, Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. I was so behind on reading these books that I knew I had to take this time to catch up and I loved this book! So much happened and I had to keep reminding my self that these characters are only 12 years old! This book was so much better than the movie and since I saw that first I was constantly comparing but there is no comparison for a great book. I would reread it but I have to finish the series first!
