I read books about lesbians, sometimes a few others thrown in, mostly Lesfic, F/F books. Come join me on my journey!
I love to read. I didn't always love it to be honest in school I hated it I thought only weird people read books or old people... well then there became me a bored out of my mind person who bought a book for no reason other than the whole freaking world wouldn't stop talking about it and I couldn't figure out why... What was the name of that book?? The Da Vinci Code. OH yes I read it couldn't put it down went crazy after I finished it.. then I found this place called a Library.. they exist outside of high schools they don't all have massive amounts of computers in them and you know what librarians are VERY useful and kind.. lol. So that is what started my love affair with books.. But.. to be honest it wasn't that book it was a type of book that got me hooked and then writers who wrote books about things that interest me and well I could probably go on about this forever..
One day I was strolling along in Barnes and Noble when I came across a book that was misplaced. Who ever did thank you! Oh. My. Gods.
Who doesn't love books about Greek mythology??? um well I can't answer that cause personally I love them!!! I couldn't put it down I spent like 14.00 or so on this book and read it in 7 hours. Disappointed it ended I ended up sneaking back to Barnes and Noble and found that there was a second book in the series. My opinion of this book, well when I was younger I wished my parents would move me anywhere other than where we lived. I have to say I am sure every child wishes this every now and then that they could move some where else. Then the typical new kids stuff making fun picking on each other and then the boy crush. Me I do not go that direction but sometimes a crush is a crush :)
Opinion (for adults) if you have an afternoon grab this book the only disappointment will be is when you finish the book. It will feel like the book ends too soon. It is a Young Adult book so it is an easy read for some people. But I loved it none the less.
If Phoebe Castro can keep her grades up and have another stellar cross-country season, her dream of attending USC with her best friends is only a track scholarship away. She’s made all her plans, so it’s a complete shock when her mom announces she’s marrying a mysterious stranger and moving them half-way around the world—to Greece.
Phoebe’s stuck on a secret island in the Aegean attending the super-exclusive Academy, where her new stepfather is the headmaster and the kids are anything but your average students—they are descendants of the Greek gods, super powers included. That’s right, Greek gods are no myth! If Phoebe thought high school was hard, she knows this is going to be mortal misery.
Securing that scholarship seems like Phoebe’s only ticket out of Greece, but training and maintaining her grades will be grueling, even without a sabotaging stepsister from Hades and a gorgeous guy—what a god!—who just might be her Achilles heel. One thing is for sure—summoning the will to win and find her place among the gods could be Phoebe’s toughest course yet.
This book in my eyes receives a 4 I think young adult books are great and I am the person who reads all of the sweet Greek mythology books, or the ones that include a little bit of magic. This book doesn't disappoint.
