Gods. Sex. & Love.

Percy Jackson is an interesting young boy. I read through the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan quite quickly. The book was good. I still can't help but think of Harry Potter though when I read it. But it does have a completely different story line. I guess its just the similarity that its a young boy who is discovering a whole new world while him and his friends fight through dangerous obstacles to do what it right.

Nevertheless once I start a story I feel the need to know how it ends. So I leaped right into book 2 which is called The Sea of Monsters. This book was better than the first but, still wasn't all that great. Maybe because its a pretty easy read. I find the greek mythology and gods aspect pretty interesting. I wish I knew more about it. Sometimes it can be a little hard to follow in the book if you don't have prior knowledge of the greek gods. I also find myself getting frustrated by the female characters. I can't put my finger on why, but the only one I actually like is Annabeth.

I wish there was more set up for the background of the book, or that it was at least explained in more detail because that whole aspect of the book is the most interesting. I also think it would add more to the actual story. Don't get me wrong I like it, but I think it has the potential to be so much better. I am currently reading the 3rd book in the series The Titan's Curse.

 I decided I needed to break this series up so I am/was reading more than one book at a time, which I usually don't do.  I finished reading Some One To Love by Addison Moore. OMG. I loved it. She  did not fail to disappoint. This book was almost every college girl's fantasy. It screamed sex. It was hott and made me want more. Cruise Elton sounds like the perfect man.(He will DEF be on my wanted list). I want to fall in love with a man like him. All I could think of was sex, sex., love, sex. After finishing reading this book all I wanted to do was read more sex. I didn't get my fill. So I decided to try and read 50 shades of better sex by Melinda Holmes. So far it its very insightful, and pretty sexy. I can't lie, it pretty much a walking hard on.  But it works because I can switch between that and Percy Jackson.

I'd like to finish this post with a question for you all.
How do I make blogging friends? I try to go out and follow blogs and leave comments, but I have yet to receive one comment, on my blog. Not that I care, because I will write regardless. But I am actually surprised that I have as many page views as I do, but no comments. How does that happen. Hmm I am confounded.I guess its no different than my real life. ha. Oh well I am better off do things for myself anyways, rather than to do if for others.


  1. I've found it difficult to make large amounts of blogging friends, though the ones I do make tend to be people who stick around my blog for a long time. It takes time and patience. You're already doing two right things in commenting on the blogs of others and writing quality posts. The traffic -- and in turn the comments -- will come in time.
