Series Review: Percy Jackson & the Olympians by Rick Riordan
Since there is no blurb for the entire series, so instead of torturing you with a horrible summarization by me, this is the blurb for the first book.
“Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is on the most dangerous quest of his life. With the help of a satyr and a daughter of Athena, Percy must journey across the United States to catch a thief who has stolen the original weapon of mass destruction — Zeus’s master bolt. Along the way, he must face a host of mythological enemies determined to stop him. Most of all, he must come to terms with a father he has never known, and an Oracle that has warned him of betrayal by a friend.”
Granted, that little blurb doesn’t really do the book justice either.

» Percy Jackson & the Olympians Series Review
Hi, everyone! Due to the general craziness of our weekdays and a particular sister’s inability (ahem *Jessi*) to produce a review this Friday, we have decided to post our reviews on Mondays instead. Hopefully, they will brighten up the worst of all weekdays for you! Jessi’s post will be up on Monday!
Book Review: Hard Magic by Laura Anne Gilman
“My name’s Bonnie Torres. Recent college grad, magic user and severely unemployed. Until I got a call out of nowhere to interview for a job I hadn’t applied for. It smelled fishy, but the brutal truth was I needed the work—so off I went.
Two days later I’m a PUPI—me and Nick, Sharon, Nifty and Pietr. Five twentysomethings, thrown into an entirely new career in forensic magic.
The first job we get is a doozy: proving that the deaths of two Talents were murder, not suicide. Worse, there are high-profile people who want us to close up shop and go away. We’re sniffing out things they’d rather keep buried.
Looks as if this job is gonna get interesting. The only problem is, we’re making it up as we go along….”

About The Book Sisters
Hi! Welcome to our blog! We are Jessi and Natalie. We’re sisters. And we love books.
This blog is an expression of our oldest and deepest shared passion: books. Here, we will share spoiler-free (unless otherwise stated) book reviews with each other and with you every Monday. Between the two of us, we read all kinds of books, so don’t be worried your favorite genre won’t show up on here. Also, occasionally, we might post book-to-movie reviews and, as we are both writers, something we’ve written for your entertainment and feedback. If you have a recommendation of a book you think we should read, feel free to message us anytime.
A Bit More On Us:
- Jessi- Hello! I’m a freshman at FSU (Go Noles!). I’m a choral music education major, I sing in a college a cappella group, and I pretend to play piano and guitar, so when I’m not reading, I’m making music. The rest of my time is filled with tumblr, baking, watching tv online, and obsessing over puppies and British things. There is a 90% chance I’m drinking coffee while you’re reading this.

- Natalie- Hi! I’m a senior in high school, living right next to Disney World, and planning on attending the University of North Florida in the fall with a major in Communications. I live off of cultural references, pizza, escapism, and any kind of fiction. I play lacrosse, sing in choir, and work on the yearbook staff. My impossible dream is to go barefoot on the moon; my more probable one is to write for a living. DFTBA!
