The Mark of Athena (Heroes of Olympus)

The Mark of Athena (Heroes of Olympus, #3) - Rick Riordan OH MY GODS.CRYING.(I'll be reviewing books 1, 2 & 3 on Youtube soon).

Heroes of Olympus: The Son of Neptune

The Son of Neptune (Heroes of Olympus, #2) - Rick Riordan More of a 4.5 than a 5, just because my reading experience wasn't as exciting in the beginning, as it had been with the previous books.So much good stuff in this book though. I'm going straight onto the next book and will do a video review of the series so far once I've finished it!

A Big Hand For The Doctor (Doctor Who 50th Anniversary E-Shorts, #1)

A Big Hand For The Doctor (Doctor Who 50th Anniversary E-Shorts, #1) - Eoin Colfer This was enjoyable and I really enjoyed Colfer's writing. The portrayal of the first Doctor was somewhat the same as the television show, but he seemed a lot nicer and more adventurous. There was reference to the 21st century as it is today, which is interesting as that obviously couldn't be done when the show was created in 1963. I'm giving it 3 stars, as it was somewhat fun but I wasn't too excited by the plot.

Heroes of Olympus: The Lost Hero

The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus, #1) - Rick Riordan New heroes are awesome. The pace is crazy-intense. And the plot twists be cray! I will probably do a video review once I've finished Son of Neptune and Mark of Athena!I definitely recommend this to those who enjoyed Percy Jackson and the Olympians. It's got all the good stuff from PJO, but I feel it's aimed at an older audience because the heroes are older now.Also, there's a bit of Roman mythology in there too, which is just as interesting as Greek mythology!

City of Glass (Mortal Instruments)

City of Glass - Cassandra Clare I felt this book, which is the last of the original trilogy, took a while for anything to happen. I was afraid after the first 100 pages or so that it was going to be a little pointless but once things set off around 150-200 pages, it got quiet intense!A lot of things are wrapped up in this book regarding Clary & Jane, The Mortal Instruments, Valentine, etc. But also there are a lot of plot twists and very surprising outcomes.Again, I just want to stress how much I love Clare's writing. In one chapter she'll be narrating the story from a certain character's perspective and just as something really insane begins to happen, she's all "lol I'm going to end this paragraph/chapter here" and we would be somewhere else with a different character. It certainly kept me wanting to read more and it helped keep a steady pace throughout.I will probably be uploading a discussion video on the first three books. I'll leave a link when I do.

The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault in Our Stars - John Green This left me in an uncontrollable, sobbing mess.My thoughts on the book:* The characters were wonderful and witty, despite the tragic situations they were in. When they made jokes or were sarcastic, I laughed out loud. Though, when they were angry, I felt angry with them.* The secondary characters in this book were wonderfully written and had a lot of time in the story. For example, Hazel's parents had a key role in the story and developed well. Often parents in YA novels are just sort of *there* in the background, but [a:John Green|1406384|John Green|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1353452301p2/1406384.jpg] wrote Hazel's parents in very well. I really enjoyed their personalities and sympathised with their situation a whole lot.* My favourite aspect of the book was the link between the fictional book in the story, written by Van Houten and the story for Hazel and Augustus. The way Van Houten's story ended, reflected how The Fault in Our Stars ended. After the last sentence in the TFiOS, I turned the page and felt a moment of disappointment. But then it came to me. It obviously ended because Hazel was too unwell, or had passed away. That was a very shocking moment for me and left me thinking about this book long after I had read it.* I loved the humour in the book. It was balanced well with the sad aspects of the story.* The themes and metaphors throughout the story were very apparent, but flowed very nicely.I highly recommend this book for anyone who reads. It is wonderful, witty, heartbreaking and beautiful written. Hazel and Augustus are, in my opinion, some of [a:John Green|1406384|John Green|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1353452301p2/1406384.jpg] best characters.

The Walking Dead Volume 4: The Hearts Desire: Heart's Desire v. 4
