Question: Today’s is the US’ Independence Day. Share your favorite book with a war in it, or an overthrow of the government.


I'm choosing a book with a war in it. Generally in paranormal books, I can get disappointed in the lack of real fight after a large build-up of conflict. However, in The Percy Jackson series, I was pleasantly surprised by the last book in the series, The Last Olympian, and how truly epic the war was. There are small battles in each of the books in the series leading up to a wonderful Titan war in the final installment that takes all allies since the threat is so large. If you read and loved Harry Potter, but haven't given this one a try yet, I would really recommend it.

  2. I'm embarrassed to say that I never read the last book in the Percy Jackson series. I stopped on book 4 and just never got around to reading the series fanale, even though it's currently only 3 feet behind me on my bookshelf. I should read it....soon.

  3. I haven't read that book. Sounds good though. I don't read many war books either.
    I love the new preferred follow graphics. I might start doing these FF posts again so I can gain blogloin followers and get them away from GFC.

  10. The Hunger Games really had an epic war, but I definitely wanted more people to learn about Percy Jackson and I assumed some people would already let the awesomeness of HG be known :D I think it's pretty great that you mentioned Percy as well though! So glad you enjoy that one. Thank you very much for stopping by!

    Oh yes, my kids are HUGE Rick Riordan fans. And that's putting it mildly. :) They've been wondering if he'd ever do a book combining Percy/Heroes/Kane...and he's releasing a short story doing just that! (actually, it may already be out. I'm not sure)

  20. I've actually never read the Percy Jackson series, though I'm hoping to finally get around to it this summer. Great pick though! I'm a bloglovin' follower. :)
