Bookish Mention & an update

Hi everyone!

It's been a while since I've done a Bookish Mention, but since the Percy Jackson & The Olympians: the Lightning Thief movie came out recently, I've noticed there's been a renewed interest in mythology from the younger readers! Our mythology section has been noticeably more empty since more readers are checking those books out!

Although I have not had the chance to see Percy Jackson yet, I have always been a fan of Greek & Roman mythology. One of the girls I see at the library now and then loves the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and said she saw the movie three times and loved it! Has anyone else seen it? Thoughts? The special fx looks amazing, but how does the plot hold up?

And for a small update: life has been wayyy too hectic lately. I've been hitting my textbooks and various required readings for writing classes far more often than I've been able to curl up with a good book. That said, I apologize for the lack of updates lately. I'm still trying to adjust to my new schedule! However, I was able to read several books beyond my required english texts during break, so expect a few reviews coming!

thanks for hanging in there with me!
In the mean time, let me know what you thought of the Lighting Thief if you saw it! Should I go watch it or not? Was it worth your ten bucks?
