The Dream Book Panel Tag

Hello, everyone! I hope you’re having a wonderful Tuesday 😀 Today is a national holiday here, so it means there was no school for me; however, I still have to work on a couple of things. That’s why I’ve been a little inactive lately, but today I’m bringing you The Dream Book Panel Tag.

I was tagged by Azia @ The Uncharted Word a looooong time ago. I loved her post and was excited to create a similar one, but I never got the free time to think about it. Recently, I was also contacted by Eventbrite. For those of you unfamiliar with the name, it is “the largest self-service ticketing platform in the world that helps people find and plan events.” You can check out their conference management page to find conferences near you. ^^

The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan

By now, I seriously don’t know what to say about Rick Riordan’s books. When I read Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian last year, I loved it so much that I couldn’t write anything about it – I couldn’t put it into words! It’s happening all over again, but now I also want to say more than I should, so I’m keeping this review completely spoiler-free, instead of just revealing spoilers of previous books. This post is going to be super short, I can already anticipate it 😂

Though the Greek and Roman crewmembers of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen—all of them—and they’re stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood—the blood of Olympus—in order to wake.

The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood. The Roman legion from Camp Jupiter, led by Octavian, is almost within striking distance. Though it is tempting to take the Athena Parthenos to Athens to use as a secret weapon, the friends know that the huge statue belongs back on Long Island, where it “might” be able to stop a war between the two camps.

The Athena Parthenos will go west; the Argo II will go east. The gods, still suffering from multiple personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of young demigods hope to persevere against Gaea’s army of powerful giants? As dangerous as it is to head to Athens, they have no other option. They have sacrificed too much already. And if Gaea wakes, it is game over.

Geekerella by Ashley Poston

I’M SO SORRY FOR MY ABSENCE, GUYS! I honestly could fill an entire post just telling you about the craziness that school has been, with all extra homework and essays, but it wouldn’t be worth it (check yesterday’s post for more details, though). I’m really upset I’m missing on your posts – even if I do a blog hop after school is over, I won’t be able to read all of it :/ I’m just glad that I’ll have a little more time after next Tuesday, that’ll be an opportunity to try to catch up.

The only reason why I’m able to post today is because I pre-wrote this, and I only had to edit the post. It’s kinda short, but I hope you still enjoy it. 🙂

Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic sci-fi series she grew up watching with her late father. So when she sees a cosplay contest for a new Starfield movie, she has to enter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball, and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. With savings from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck (and her dad’s old costume), Elle’s determined to win…unless her stepsisters get there first.

Teen actor Darien Freeman used to live for cons—before he was famous. Now they’re nothing but autographs and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Carmindor is all he’s ever wanted, but Starfield fandom has written him off as just another dumb heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, Darien feels more and more like a fake—until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise. But when she disappears at midnight, will he ever be able to find her again?

Part romance, part love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, Geekerella is a fairy tale for anyone who believes in the magic of fandom.

A Thousand Salt Kisses Later by Josie Demuth

Hello everyone! I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been a bit inactive lately. I haven’t posted here or on instagram (which I should have), I haven’t caught up with other blog posts or comments and I rarely checked social media. That’s because this past week has been crazy, and I don’t expect the next two to be any different – with all the school work I’ve had to do, it’s a miracle I still find time to read! (For the records, I don’t. I just have to sacrifice my time for other things in order to find time to read.)

Today I’m sharing with you a post I wrote some time ago, and sadly, it’s a review of a book that I didn’t like that much. I haven’t read any mermaid book besides A Thousand Salt Kisses, and now, its sequel, A Thousand Salt Kisses Later – I actually found the titles a bit odd, but by reading this second book, I understood it. Unfortunately, they didn’t live up to my expectations.

The spellbinding sequel to A Thousand Salt Kisses.
Four years ago, Crystal White fell in love with Llyr, a prince of the magical mer colony living off the coast of Starfish Island. For one summer, he enchanted her with stories of jeweled palaces and underwater gardens, but then he left, returning beneath the waves with her heart in tow.
Now, graduated and with no job in sight, Crystal is forced to go back to the island she thought she had left in the past. By the sea again, she realizes she is far from over her first love, and when an opportunity arises to contact the merfolk, Crystal can’t resist.
Once more with the mer, Crystal is forced to come to terms with the fact that Llyr has moved on, and also with her own magical secret that has endangered her life, his throne, and every mer kingdom. Working against all odds, she has to try to save the people she has come to love and—if she can—rekindle the romance of her first summer on Starfish Island.

When BFFs Charlie, Taylor and Jamie go to SupaCon, they know it’s going to be a blast. What they don’t expect is for it to change their lives forever.

Charlie likes to stand out. SupaCon is her chance to show fans she’s over her public breakup with co-star, Jason Ryan. When Alyssa Huntington arrives as a surprise guest, it seems Charlie’s long-time crush on her isn’t as one-sided as she thought.

While Charlie dodges questions about her personal life, Taylor starts asking questions about her own.

Taylor likes to blend in. Her brain is wired differently, making her fear change. And there’s one thing in her life she knows will never change: her friendship with Jamie—no matter how much she may secretly want it to. But when she hears about the Queen Firestone SupaFan Contest, she starts to rethink her rules on playing it safe.

It has been too long since my last Top 5 Wednesday and I admit that I’ve missed writing them! I haven’t had much free time lately to do anything really, like reading or think of posts to write, so when I saw this theme I thought it was my opportunity!
