Books We Wish We Could Read Again for the First Time - Part 2
There's only one first time for everything
But don't you wish you could read your favorite books again for the first time?
Jacey wishes she could experience that with Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief!
I love Percy Jackson.
It is the reason I'm a reader and that I'm here [working at the bookstore] today.
I was always kind of a reader as a kid, but it wasn't until this book that I just fell in love with the idea of fantasy and going to another world and just doing things that kids normally can't do.
This book was filled with adventure for me, and I love recommending it to kids now.
Check out the rest of the series!
And, after 14 years, the sixth book in the series is coming out on September 26, 2023!
The original heroes from The Lightning Thief are reunited for their biggest challenge yet: getting Percy to college when the gods are standing in his way.
After saving the world multiple times, Percy Jackson is hoping to have a normal senior year. Unfortunately, the gods aren’t quite done with him. Percy will have to fulfill three quests in order to get the necessary three letters of recommendation from Mount Olympus for college.
The first quest is to help Zeus’s cup-bearer retrieve his goblet before it falls into the wrong hands. Can Percy, Grover, and Annabeth find it in time?
Readers new to Percy Jackson and fans who have been awaiting this reunion for more than a decade will delight equally in this latest hilarious take on Greek mythology.
