Celebrate The 10th Anniversary Of The Percy Jackson Series! #ReadRiordan Giveaway Ends – 7/6 #ad

*Disclosure: I will be receiving books, merchandise and prizing from Disney-Hyperion in exchange for 4 posts over the next 6 months. All opinions however, are my own.*


My oldest son Ethan is a voracious reader. Even at a young age he would read everything and anything. Many mornings before school, I would catch him reading cereal boxes! Since he had read everything in my house and he was desperate for something new and exciting to read, my mom and I took him to a local book store. I will always be grateful for the store employee who recommended Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series for my son.


Ethan devoured the first book, ” The Lightning Thief” in the Percy Jackson series. He then anxiously waited for the next books to come out by studying up on Greek mythology and memorizing the Greek gods. He was like a sponge, his teachers were even impressed! Ethan is 15 now, but he still loves Rick Riordan and still waits ever so patiently for him to release a new book!

This year is the 10th anniversary of when  “The Lightning Thief” was released, and to celebrate, Ethan has come up with a list of “10 Reasons Summer Would Be Better At Camp Half-Blood”. So without further adieu…

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.

  2. Vicki Wurgler says:

    my favorite would be Poseidon

  3. I’ve always been a big fan of Athena, goddess of wisdom! I would have liked Annabeth anyway, because she’s so well-written, but the fact that she’s a daughter of Athena just made her that much better!

  4. shelly peterson says:

    My sons favorite is Poseidon.

  5. Sui generis

    Definitely Poseidon! I love him because I think he is the strongest and most powerful among the siblings because because he controls likely the most powerful force on earth.
    And his powers are amazing! I also love the sea and horses (although not the earthquake, though). I think he would’ve been a perfect ruler!

  6. stephanie buchanan says:

    My favorite in general is Calypso. My favorite in the Percy movies is Hermes.

  7. Sharon Schoepe says:

    I would have to say my favorite is Poseidon. I have always loved the ocean and I can only imagine how cool it would be to be able to control it.

    Artemis: she was the goddess of childbirth, hunting, wilderness and wild animals. I’ve always love how they depicted her through art. Always with a bow an arrow and a wild animal behind her or beside her.
