Soundtrack Sundays! (Inspired by The Hardcover Lover)

oni

Hey guys,

I found this super fun meme on The Hardcover Lover, called Soundtrack Saturdays! This will be a bit different to the meme on The Hardcover Lover but I thought I would just mention, that this meme will be based on hers. I’ll posting this every Sunday and therefore, it will be called Soundtrack Sundays! Soundtrack Sundays, is where I’ll pick a book that I love or have read recently and I’ll devise a four to five song playlist based on these guidelines:
❤ Include a song that you think goes well with the beginning of your chosen book
❤ Include a song you think fits the main character in your chosen book
❤ Include a song you think fits the evil character in your chosen book (This is a little something else I added)
❤ Include a song that represents a relationship in your chosen book
❤ Include a song that fits the ending of the book

 

If you have to know anything about me, it has to be the fact that I absolutely love music. From Shawn Mendes to Selena Gomez (Yes, they are both my favourite artists at the moment), I love anything that is pop or hit music. I think that it’s safe to say that most of the songs I’ll choose are the popular songs on the radio! 🙂 What’s your favourite song or who is your favourite artist at the moment? I would love to know! I don’t know if I’ll be doing this every week, but hopefully, I’ll do it again soon!

Today I’ll be choosing the Percy Jackson series:

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Here is my playlist, which you guys can listen to :)!

Here are some reasons for my song choices, they may include spoilers for the series:
1) Never Forget You by Zara Larason and MNEK
I chose this song to represent Percabeth (#relationshipgoals!) because even when Percy lost his memory he still remembered Annabeth!

2) Drag Me Down by One Direction
No, I’m not a major One Direction lover who has their faces plastered everywhere. To be honest, this was actually the first song I truly enjoyed from them! I think it pretty much encapsulates the ending of the series because nobody could drag the ArgoII crew down! 🙂

3) The Trouble With Us by Marcus Marr and Chet Faker
This song symbolizes Kronos and Gaea because they really were lots of trouble but not only that, the gods are major troublemakers, which pretty much causes an overload of problems in the series!

4) My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark by Fall Out Boy
This song represents the start of the book because after the Minotaur had captured/killed Percy’s mother. His fire was lit and it was definitely, “Lighting him up,”

5) Stressed Out by 21 Pilots
I chose this song because Percy Jackson’s life was so simple before the books and then suddenly, his life was “stressed-out” after meeting and discovering the Greek Mythology world!

I hope you enjoyed this post and stay tuned for lots of exciting new posts, which will be coming out soon! What songs do you think represent Percy Jackson?

Top 5: Fictional Worlds

As book-lovers, do you know what we all want the most? (other than marrying your favorite fictional character *cough* Daemon *cough* ) Yes, that’s right to jump into our favorite fictional, book worlds. Today I have a list of my top 5 book worlds, I want to be part of! These won’t be in order because it is just to hard to choose! 🙂
Sorry about the previous upload of this post, an error occurred and it posted the first half of this post! 🙂
I would love to hear what your favorite book worlds down in the comments below:

1) Vampire Academy
You don’t understand how badly I want to be dhampir! 🙂 I think it would be the coolest thing knowing that you go to a high-class academy where you are training to be a vampire guardian. The facilities would be so cool and it would be just like living in this world but with vampires.

2) Shadowhunter World
I would love to be Shadowhunter, grow up in the Shadowhunter Academy and to kill demons. Cassandra Clare has done an amazing job building this world up that it actually seems real and she has gotten all her facts out of encyclopedias. I know so much about it that I wish I was in there

3) Camp-Half Blood
Who wouldn’t want to be a daughter/son of a Greek God? Like Vampire Academy, I would love to train and learn skills in a camp knowing that I am a half-blood. I would love to go on quests, play capture the flag, jump into the lake and most importantly meet Percy and Annabeth :). I would love to be a daughter of Athena or Poseidon 🙂

4) Luxen
Not a surprise but how cool would it be to be a hybrid alien? I wouldn’t want to be a normal Luxen but like Kat- I want to fall in love with one, almost die, resurrect and become bonded with my Luxen. 🙂

5) Gargoyles
From Jennifer L. Armentrout’s The Dark Elements, I think it would be pretty cool to be dragged into the world of angels and demons. Similar to Shadowhunters, I would love to kill demons and have this whole legendary story about our kind come about.

These are my top 5 fictional worlds! What are some of yours?

Blood of Olympus review

Title: Blood of Olympus
Author: Rick Riodan
Release Date: 7th Oct, 2014
Rating: 8.5/10

Review on the one and only, Blood of Olympus!! This book was amazing and I was so lucky to receive it two days earlier. It is not as good as Mark of Athena, but it was a stunning ending to a great series! I was really upset that this was the last book of a childhood series and I felt nostalgic throughout the whole book. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do!

*SPOILER ALERT- REVIEW DOES CONTAIN SPOILERS*

I do have a few rants about this book. First of all, there were no chapters at all with Percy nor Annabeth’s perspective. This is the last book of a popular series and I think most people would of enjoyed it if it had two of the most popular character’s perspective. Not only that, but Rick put Jason’s perspective and he is my least favorite character. The first chapter starts with him complaining about how old he feels. Well, you know what Jason suck it up princess. Out of all of the character’s perspective I enjoyed Piper’s the most. I enjoyed the idea of putting in Nico’s and Reyna’s perspective, as we got to find out more about them. I also have one small little problem, the book was WAY TOO SHORT! I honestly thought it was going to be a long book but then the book finished 50 pages before the end because of Staff of Serapis and the Glossary.

Now onto the pros, the book may not have had a lot of percabeth moments but the when they did creep up they were so cute. The ending when they were planning their future and the cute kissing scene just before Gaia wakes. Percy was much more clumsier in this book which I enjoyed, such as, the whole nose blood incident. Annabeth was so sassy and was it just me or was she more dependant on others. It really annoyed me because I looked up to Annabeth all my life. I loved the quote “That was the dumbest risk I’ve ever seen someone take and I date a dumb risk taker”. That was so cute!

I loved the ending, except for the fact that Leo “died” and I started hysterically crying when Piper and Jason was recalling the memories of Leo on the rooftop. I was glad that he made it to Oggyia and ended up with Calypso. It made me so happy to see that one of my favorite book series ended with Leo and Calypso riding off on Festus, happy the dragon. It was a perfect fairy tale ending!

I will forever keep this book in my heart- it may be the last wait for a Percy Jackson book, it may be the last time I read about Annabeth and Percy, it may be the last Percy Jackson book I ever will own. But I promise to always remember my childhood book of my generation!

Percy Jackson and The Olympians & Heroes of Olympus- Review

Hello! These books are one of my favourite books. I read The Lightning Thief in 2nd Grade and fell in love. I’ve read every single book (other than Blood Of Olympus) twice or more. I read Mark of Athena five times. It was so good. I definitely recommend it to anyone, it is a simple read but at the same time the world is complex like a large puzzle. It’s great for those who are just entering the YA Fiction Fandom. If you haven’t read any of the books, you should leave because the next part contains spoilers:

Okay, so let’s do this review book by book:

Percy Jackson and The Olympians:
The Lightning Thief- OH MY GOD! This book means so much to me. It was the book that brought me and both of my best friends together. It got me through 2nd Grade. Percy and Annabeth immediately became my Idols. I couldn’t put the book down. When he discovered he was a demigod, I immediately wanted to become a demigod as well.

The Sea of Monsters- When I picked up this book, I soared through it! It was really good. Obviously, not as good as The Lightening Thief and my heart did a little dance when Annabeth pecked Percy’s cheek. It was also so adorable when Percy turned into a little hamster and I burst out laughing when Grover was “getting married” to the Cyclops.

The Titan’s Curse- This is one of my favourites in the Percy Jackson and Olympians series. I loved  Zoe,  she was so Clueless. It was such a DAM (you see what I did there) problem when Annabeth was kidnapped, I was so worried. One of my favourite parts, was when Percy and Annabeth held the weight of the world.

The Battle of The Labyrinth- This was a great book! When Rachel Elizabeth Dare entered the scene, I immediately felt the tension in the air! I learnt a lot about Greek Mythology in this book, especially about Daedalus and the Labyrinth. I loved it when Rachel hit Kronos in the eye with a blue plastic hairbrush! It is now so iconic in the PJO Fandom.

The Last Olympian: This was pure gold. I could not put this book down. It was amazing! The Battle of Manhattan was so intense, and I was so upset when Charles died. It was a major plot twist  when Silena turned out to be on Kronos’s side but then she turned out to be a hero. I nearly started crying when Luke died and Annabeth was like I only ever treated you like a brother. My favourite part was when Percy and Annabeth had the underwater kiss.

Heroes of Olympus:
The Lost Hero- I entered this book and was like WHO IN THE WORLD ARE THESE PEOPLE?. I soon learned to love them, especially Leo. I was a bit annoyed with Jason because he reminded me of a Percy Jackson wannabe. My heart broke into shreds when I discovered Percy was missing and that Annabeth was so upset. I loved the whole thing where Jason was actually Thalia’s little brother.

The Son of Neptune- I was so excited when Percy was back- except for the fact that he lost his memories. My heart melted when he only remembered Annabeth. I loved Hazel’s dark history and Frank’s stick. I loved the final battle, it was so epic and filled with so much action.

Mark of Athena- THIS IS MY FAVOURITE BOOK OF THE WHOLE SERIES. There were so many cute Percabeth moments. I loved their reunion. This was one of the first books where it was all centered around Annabeth. I loved the Mark of Athena and Annabeth was so smart when she asked Arachne to recreate the Chinese Handcuffs. I would never had thought of that! I hated the Plot Twist- You don’t just throw my two favourite characters down into Tartarus! I loved this book so much I read it FIVE TIMES and never got sick of it!

House of Hades- The wait for this book was painful and agonizing! When this book came out, I spent five whole minutes screaming and jumping, up and down! When I read it I couldn’t stop, I loved reading Percy and Annabeth’s adventure! I was so upset when Bob and Damasen were left behind in Tartarus. It was a surprise learning that Nico actually had a crush on Percy! I ship it in an alternate universe, because Percabeth is my OTP!

Blood Of Olympus- OMG OMG OMG I cannot wait any longer! It comes out in two weeks! I hope Percy and Annabeth don’t die! I want this book now! However, at the same time I do not want one of my favorite books to end!

I love this series and rate it 9/10! It makes me so happy when I see young children reading Percy Jackson! I love this book so much! You guys should definitely check out my Percy Jackson Buddy’s blog at http://artemisskadi.typepad.com/blog/! Next Review: Divergent Series

Hope you guys likes my review!

Blood Of Olympus Snippets

Hey Guys! As promised, here are the six latest snippets of Blood of Olympus. If you haven’t read Percy Jackson or Blood of Olympus, I highly recommend these books and if you are currently reading one of the books in either series, you shouldn’t read this as there are some spoilers! Here they are:

Clue 1: Hazel Levesque
Hazel stuck the point of her spatha under Nike’s chin.
“Explain,” her voice was harder than Leo had ever heard, “Which of us will die? How do we stop it?”
Nike said, “Ah, tell the Pluto, your magic will help you cheat in this contest, but you cannot cheat destiny. One of you will die, one of you must die.”

Clue 2: Jason Grace- This clue sounds like something from The Lost Hero, however it is confirmed that it is definitely from Blood of Olympus.
Jason knew he shouldn’t look, but he couldn’t close his eyes as Juno went Supernova, revealing her true godly form. Pain seared Jason’s mind his body burned away in layers like an onion.

Clue 3: Leo Valdez
It was a long shot, if he failed it would crush him not just emotionally, it would physically crush him.

Clue 4: Piper McLean
Aphrodite’s words came back to Piper. “Must bridge the gap between Roman and Greek my child. Neither storm nor fire can succeed without you,”
Aphrodite had warned her of what was to come, told her what Piper would have to do to defeat Gaea. Whether or not she would have the courage Piper didn’t know.

Clue 5: Percy Jackson
Jason had never met this particular giant, but he had heard stories. Polybotes, the anti-Poseidon. The giant shook his dreadlocks, a dozen serpents swam free, each one light green with a frilled frown around its head.Basilisks.
“Indeed son of Rome,” the giant said, “but if you’ll excuse me, my immediate businesses is with Percy Jackson. I tracked him all the way across Tartarus. Now here in his father’s ruins, I need to crush him once and for all.”

Clue 6: Reyna
She couldn’t tell her friends how much she feared ghosts, or why she feared them. The whole reason why she and her sister had run away from San Juan all those years ago. That secret had to stay buried.

I am so excited for Blood of Olympus, but at the same time I am dreading it because I don’t want my childhood idols to die (Percy and Annabeth). I do not know how I will react if they die. Not only  am I scared of deaths but I don’t want one of my favorite series to end. Rick Riodan said that two people of the seven are going to die. I don’t mind if Jason dies because I do not like him that much (Please don’t hate me). He kind of reminds me of a Percy Jackson wannabe, and I nearly exploded when Piper said Percy looked unimpressive. Percy Jackson is a god!

Anyway, if you want another snippet you can read the first chapter of Blood of Olympus, when you purchase Staff of Serapis on kindle, Ipad or Android. There is still one more clue and I’ll post it once it comes out! Comment below your theories about Blood of Olympus:
