The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1) by Rick Riordan

Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school… again. And that’s the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy’s Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he’s angered a few of them. Zeus’ master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect.

Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus’ stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves. 

Why did I wait so long to read this?!?! šŸ˜³šŸ˜³šŸ˜³ It was so good! It was refreshing to break away from all the instalove and love triangles and just go on an adventure. 

I fell in love with Grover from the beginning! I hope we see him again sometime in the series. Despite this being middle grade (I know it says YA on Goodreads but it’s not. This is middle grade) I couldn’t see what was coming next. I never guessed that it was Koronos in the dreams. 

I’m excited to jump right in to book 2!! 

5/5 šŸŒŸ
