I find it really difficult to review books that are super popular, because what can I possibly say that hasn’t been said or pointed out a hundred times previously?
So instead of even trying to tackle a review for the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, I thought it would be fun to just pick out my favorite quotes from all five books. These are going to be the quotes that made me laugh out loud, appreciate the lessons Rick Riordan was teaching, the ones that made smile to myself, and overall made me fall in love with the series.
Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief
“What horrible things would you have to do in your life to get woven into Hades’ underwear?”
“What I did next was so impulsive and dangerous I should’ve been named ADHD poster child of the year.”
“I didn’t understand how. But the toilets had responded to me. I had become one with the plumbing…”
“His hair was permed and gelled like a New Jersey girl’s on homecoming night.”
