Top Ten Tuesday | Books for My Younger Self

Happy Tuesday, bloggers!

Reading was a luxury when I was younger. I couldn’t always read the books I wanted. So I missed out on a lot of series I wish I had.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. The next prompt is books for my younger self. So here are the series I wish I could read when younger.

Enjoy the post!

Beyond the Blurb | Why, as an Adult, I Want to Read Percy Jackson

Morning, everyone!

Who doesn’t know about Percy Jackson? Not many. But I never thought I should read it, until recently. Maybe I thought I wouldn’t fit into the series. Even though I’ve (recently) picked my Hogwarts house proudly, I always felt like an outsider in that fandom. So why wouldn’t I feel the same with PJO?

As an adult, I didn’t experience this fandom at all, but I wanted to. I related to a 12-year-old child who’s father abandoned him more than I did with a child with a lightning bolt on his forehead.

So when I heard that Uncle Rick started working on the pilot of his PJO show, I knew I couldn’t pass up the series again. Now, back in the day, I did read some of The Lightning Thief. I remembered Grover, all the shenanigans the trio got into, and some of the storyline. Yet I didn’t finish the book though. When I was younger though, my family couldn’t afford a ton of books, so I often borrowed copies from my friends or local library, if it had what I was looking for. Not this time. So I bought myself the box set, and I haven’t looked back since.

But why should I read this iconic series though? I’m an adult, not a teen or middle grader. I’m outside of the target audience. So what’s the point? That thought is what sparked this post. Here are the reasons why I, and you, should read Percy Jackson and the Olympians!
