In My Mailbox (January 3rd)

In my mailbox was created by Kristi of The Story Siren, who was inspired by Pop Culture Junkie. Here are the books I got this week...

The Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan

Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can’t seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse—Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy’s mom finds out, she knows it’s time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he’ll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half-Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends—one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena—Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.

I thought that I should read it before the movie comes out in February.

What did you get this week?

My plan is to read it before the movie comes out as well!

Lea said...

Same goes with me, I really want to find and read it before I see the movie. Can't wait to see your thoughts on it!

Kathy Martin said...

Me too! I read it when it came out but I need to refresh my memory. I bought a set of the first three at Amazon just before Christmas but haven't gotten to them yet. When is the movie? I still have time, don't I?

I haven't read this series yet but that cover looks really great. Happy reading!

Never really gave this series a serious thought until I saw the movie trailer. Now I know I need to read it before seeing the movie.
