The Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus Character book tag

percy jackson

When I heard the news about the PJO book series being adapted as a Disney+ series, I was so excited that I started telling my family and friends about it. Since none of them have read the books, they couldn’t understand my level of excitement. 

Of course, all of my twitter feed that day was so full of comments and retweets about the news. Book twitter COULD understand why I was so excited (thank you). 

I have to thank May over at Forever and Everly? Thank you so much for creating this amazing tag and tagging me as well! Also, I will be using May’s artwork/graphics because I feel like they look so good and are an essential part of the tag.

Percy Jackson: your best/favorite book of the year
percy jackson

I really liked the format, the characters, and the plot overall! I can’t believe it took me such a long time to finally pick it up from my TBR. 


Annabeth Chase: a book where you’re in awe of the author’s genius
percy jackson

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. At first, I was so confused by the beginning and especially by the POVs. What I find genius about this book is the imagination of the author. By this I mean, the whole world, how the story is written, and the details that are included in every single chapter.


Grover Underwood: a book you love that’s under-hyped
percy jackson

This thriller should be talked about more! If you like thrillers, this is an easy read and a GREAT page-turner!


Luke Castellan: a book that you thought you’d hate but didn’t
percy jackson

At first, I thought that I would hate Thirteen Reasons Why, but it was actually a page-turner. I read it years before the Netflix series came out (which I haven’t watched btw) and I thought I would not like it at all. I had to read it for a school project and honestly, I was just preparing myself to not finish it. 


Chiron: a book that will always feel like home
percy jackson

When I was in elementary, The Lightning Thief was the first book with no drawings that I ever read.

I absolutely love it when there are mythological references in books and/or films. 


Tyson: a book with a sibling relationship you adore
percy jackson

Honestly I love how every sister is different from one another. But, the sibling relationship that I absolutely adore is the one between Nesta and Elain Archeron. They just compliment each other’s personalities (Idk if that makes sense). 


Thalia Grace: a book where time froze when you read it
percy jackson

Fangirl. It just took me SO LONG to finish this book. I was spending so many weeks reading a book that it should have taken me days to finish it. I realized that this had happened once I FINALLY closed the book, removed by bookmark, and went to my Goodreads account. In the end, I don’t think I even wrote a review.


Nico Di Angelo: a well-loved book you love too
percy jackson

The Kite Runner. I don’t think The Kite Runner was a very hyped book to begin with, but I don’t know a single person that has read it and that hasn’t loved it. 


Calypso: a book you’d be marooned on an island with
percy jackson

Cliché but I would probably choose Life of Pi. Honestly, I don’t remember much about this book so this is exactly the reason why I would choose it. The plot overall is compelling enough and ideal to read in this situation. 


Rachel Dare: a book you predict you will give 5 stars
percy jackson

Every time I try to buy One of us is Lying via Amazon, there is a ‘sold-out message’. It is so frustrating but the premise plus the reviews from this book makes it sound like a story that I would absolutely love. 


Jason Grace: an upcoming book you’d get hit by a brick to read now
percy jackson

I’ve participated in so many giveaways of Jo & Laurie (and haven’t won a single one of them). I just HAVE to read it! There is no way I’ll be disappointed. It’s the romantic retelling I’ve “always” wanted! 


Piper Mclean: a book you loved that someone convinced you to read
percy jackson

The Selection by Kiera Cass was the first book that I ever read in a single day. It was such a light-hearted read and an amazing page-turner. When a friend told me about this book, I didn’t think I would like it because it just seemed so predictable and cheesy. 

I was right; the first three books are soooo cheesy BUT in a good way that it just melts your heart tbh. 

Alsoooo, the announcement that there is going to be a Netflix adaptation is one of the best book news of the year.

Leo Valdez: the funniest book you’ve read

This is going to sound awful but I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that has made me laugh. Sure, maybe with a line a character said or an embarrassing situation that happened to that character, but I can’t think of one right now. I’ll just go with “Heartless” by Marissa Meyer because it’s a book that reminded me a lot of my childhood and made me smile throughout most of the book. 


Hazel Levesque: an old book/book you read a long time ago but still love
percy jackson

I read the first book a very long time ago but I just I LOVEEE The Maze Runner book series. I don’t remember the details but I do remember the plot and the characters and to me, they were perfect! 


Frank Zhang: a book you were afraid to reach the end of

Halfway through, I had no idea how “Sadie” by Courtney Summers was going to end. The timeline, the set of events, and the POV’s were leading to something that was still unknown but soooo intriguing.


a book everyone hates but you love
percy jackson

I really loved Taken and the trilogy overall! So many people will complain about this book saying that the world was “not developed enough” and whatnot, but I really loved the story. This comes from a person that loves the YA dystopian genre. Everything was so clear that it was like having a movie in your head and the plot was really entertaining.


Octavian: a book you punch without hesitation
percy jackson

The thing about this book is that most of the time I just felt so so annoyed and frustrated at the characters’ actions and at the plot overall. 


Percabeth: a book with the best romance
percy jackson

Yes I’m so basic but Feyre and Rhysand are my ultimate favorite literary couple (so far).

Have you read the Percy Jackson and The Olympians book series?

    I’m in a desperate need to re-read the PJO books! But also to keep reading what I’m missing from Rick Riordan xD I also tried to scream about the news with family and friends, but no one really understood/cared, sadly. I do own a copy of The Lightning Thief (I borrowed the books from a friend when I first read them, and only recently got a second-hand copy of TLT) so I’m tempted to re-read at least that one (until I save money for a box set of my own xD). I loved reading your answers, Val! I loved this tag <3

      I barely never re-read books but I feel like I have to with the PJO books! Only the book community truly understands my excitement for the Disney+ adaptation hahaha. The only PJO books I own are TLT, The Sea of Monsters, and The Last Olympian. I borrowed the other two so I also want to save up some money to buy these two books (and maybe a new box set…)
      I’m glad you liked the tag! Can’t wait to read your answers!
