Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

Saving CeeCee Honeycutt By: Beth Hoffman

This is a book that was introduced to me by my book club. I have never even heard of this book. It started out really kinda depressing. If it wasn't for my book club I may have stopped reading it. But I am really glad that I finished it, it turned out to be a great read and even funny.

Then CeeCee's world was completely changed when he mother had unexpectedly passed away and CeeCee went to live with her great aunt in Georgia. Aunt Tootie had a wonderful friend who was also her cook and helped her with the house named Oletta. She also had some eccentric friends and neighbors and goes on some crazy adventures.

Sea of Monsters

Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Book 2. Sea of Monsters By: Rick Riordan

Since I enjoyed the first book so much I decided to continue on in the series. In the second book Percy Jackson continues with even more adventures with more at state. He teams up once again with his friend Anna Beth as well as Tyson a cyclops friend from school. That he later discovers is his brother when Poseidon claims Tyson as his own. They go on a dangerous  mission to save camp half blood, Percy's satyr friend Grover, and stealing the mythical golden fleece from the cyclops Prometheus.

This was a great continuance from the first book. With lots of twists, turns and page turning moments. So far I am really enjoying this series.

The Lightning Thief

Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Book 1-The Lightning Thief By: Rick Riordan

I have read this book once before a long LONG time ago. :) however the first time I read it I wasn't all that interested in the story and had a bit of a grudge against reading it. For reasons I will not explain. However with the start of Spring I wanted a book that I could listen to while I was working out in the yard. Something fiction that didn't need to have my full unoccupied attention. That's when I remembered this book. I thought it would be a good idea and put my prejudices aside. Turns out I REALLY enjoyed this book and I look forward to the rest of the series.

The book is about a half human, half god named Percy Jackson. Who is the son of Greek God Poseidon. Percy doesn't know who his dad is and always considered himself a handful. Being kicked out of 6 different schools in his 6 years of being in school. He was told he had ADHD and Dyslexia. However that was simply his God attributes shining through. He had his identity thrown upon him and by the tie he was able to almost wrap his head around who he really was, he was given a world saving quest to retrieve Zeus's master lightening bolt and return it to him. With the help of his friends Annabelle daughter of Athena and Grover a satyr sworn to protect Percy. They venture out from New York headed to LA to confront Hades in the underworld. But with side quests, twists and turns and monsters on their heels these three discover the truth and unearth an even bigger mystery that is bigger than a potential World War 3.

A Hobbit, A Wardrobe and a Great War     By: Joseph Loconte

This is a great read and I really enjoyed it. It talks about both J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis and their experiences in World War I and how it effected their writing in the later career. It also talks about their friendship and how they helped each other throughout their careers. It was a really great read.
