i just finished reading these books...
i really liked them a lot. they were really quick reads. i thought it was a great way to get kids interested in mythology as well. the story line is interesting and while it is similar to Harry Potter, the authors have completely different writing styles so they are strikingly different. i recommend giving them a try. i liked them a lot! my biggest problem was getting them from the library...long waiting lists, so i borrowed from very nice people. none of them took me more than 2 days to read. do it, they are fun books!
okay...in between the other books i have been reading, i have re-read Harry Potter. i just love the books okay? i do. they are books i can pick up when i don't have "a book" going and just read. no pressure. i love the story, i know what happens but they are still so well written that i just read for pleasure and for the love of reading. i mean really.
i just finished The Deathly Hallows again today and i really want J.K. Rowling to write more about what happens to them after Voldemort. and how did Lily and James end up liking each other? that is never really explained. she seems to think he is so conceited so how did they end up married? and what did they do for jobs? and i just want more...and i want her to just write more books...non-Harry is fine, i just like her writing style a lot. so hopefully she will:)
that's my book soap box for today.
Book up next: The Blindside.
