Saying it now cause I know for sure that I won't be free to update anytime soon oooops>< Really hope you guys would have a fruitful Raya!!

Yeah and the view at night is absolutely stunning too!!! So do go there to grab some yummy stuffs!!! And also go around 4-5+ to avoid crowds!!
Despite all that, I've also been reading kinda a lot lately yayyyyy!! Bet all of you guys thought that I must've stopped reading. I think I mentioned in one of last few posts that I'd actually review the Percy Jackson's series and guess what, I've actually finished 10 books of those series!! And it consists of Percy Jackson & The Olympians and Heroes of Olympus! Both the series were extremely astounding!!! At first I was really reluctant to read the second series but after much consideration I still chose to read it cause I realised I was really into Greek and Roman mythology. The first series don't really consist much about the Romans but in the second series there were a mixture of both Greek and Roman.
Upon hearing Percy Jackson, I'm sure a lot if you guys will think about Logan Lerman first. HAHA don't worry me too actually so everytime when I'm inside the demigod world, I picture all the adventures of Percy as Logan. But just to clarify, the book is actually really different from the movie and as you can see, they aren't actually continuing the series anymore sadly:( BUT, the books are actually way way WAYYYYY more interesting than the movie!!! The adventures are more detailed and you should definitely let your imaginations do the work!!
For introduction sake, Percy is a son of Poseidon also known as God of the Sea. And there's Annabeth daughter of Athena known as Goddess of Wisdom. Those 2 are the main characters of the book! Yeap and spoiler, THEY BECAME A COUPLE. As of the first series, Percy Jackson & The Olympians, the first book was The Lightning Thief and I'm very sure many of you had watched the moviee. So the drill for the adventures are actually the demigods going for quests. And those quests aren't meant to be easy and there's bound to be many ups and downs and lots of monsters to kill and also facing some of the gods. I'm actually not going to summarize the 5 books of the series hehehe but I'm going to tell you that my favourite among the 5 books is The Last Olympian and yes that'sthe last book of the series. It's actually pretty hard to choose a favourite cause all of them are really really nice and thrilling and it didn't actually took me very long to finish those 5 books cause it seriously that INTERESTING to keep going on!! If you're like me who actually prefer fantasy stuff, I totally recommend you to read this series because it's absolutely cool and amazing!!!! And don't be surprised if you wanna search up about the greek and roman history HAHAHA cause that's what happened to me.
As for Heroes of Olympus, they included the Romans which meant there wasn't only the Greek demigods. As for the Greeks, their camp is called Camp Half-Blood while the Roman side is called Camp Jupiter. The characters you'll get to know in this series are Percy, Annabeth, Jason, Leo, Piper, Frank, Hazel, Nico, Reyna. So the first book which is called The Lost Hero. The book is mainly about Jason. So the problem in this book is that the Earth Mother is awakening and they have to stop that from happening and by doing so, they have to reunited both the camps. So Juno also known Hera, cleared Jason's memory as well as Percy's and put them in Camp Half-Blood and Camp Jupiter respectively. And after that they went for quests after quests. Side track, Jason Grace son of Jupiter also known as Zeus. Leo Valdez son of Hephaestus also known as Vulcan. Piper McLean daughter of Aphrodite also known as Venus. Frank Zhang son of Mars also known as Ares [he is able to change form into animals!!!!] Hazel Levesque and Nico Di Angelo daughter and son of Hades also known as Pluto. Reyna, Praetor of the Roman camp, daughter of Bellona. Yeap I know it seems freaking dumb saying this SO PLS GO READ IT!!! I swear it's really goood!!! My favourite book in this series got to be House of Hades! It's actually really cool as Percy and Annabeth had fallen into the pit of Tartarus and the Argo II had to get to the mortal side to help Percy and Annabeth to open the Doors of Death. Also in this context, the Earth Mother also known as Gaia isn't actually the nicest goddess. And also through this series, I absolutely fell in love with Nico Di Angelo!!!! Super charming and very braveeee!!! And I freaking love his Underworld Powers! hehehe I think if I were to summarise it, I would spoil the interesting things so sadly I can't:( yeap so tots reccommending you guys to read this series!!!!! Good chance to improve your English yeah? (:
So yeap!! I hope you guys will read it or even better already read it! I think it's really nice to just share what you love around like I mean not physical things like boyfriend for example LOL. That can't be shared HAHA as if it isn't obvious enoughhhh.. Well you get the idea hehehe!! So yeah, being in the world of fantasies and imaginations are truly the best things to distress yourself and just you know escape reality for a little while.. To those that ain't interested in fantasy books, go read some Self-Help :D hehehe hope you'll find the love and Greek Mythology like I do and yeap I truly hope to visit Athens one day in Greece and the Colosseum in Rome! And to those who dislike reading, maybe try listening to audible books!! Saves you the trouble of using your eyes (:
I know it's been like 5 months and I truly am sorry but so many things are going on and I'm also anticipating more in the upcoming months.. Lots of mugging to be done and more books to read as well.. So once again, Happy Youth Day to all youths out there (: and also Selamat Heri Raya!! Have a great festive holiday ahead! I know it's pretty lengthy and it's also okay if you actually don't read it up till here but if you do, I really appreciate it!! *I'm actually reading the new series called Trials of Apollo so there will surely be a review after the series ends!!!* In the meantime, stay awesome and be happy always!
Hugs & Kisses!
