by Reagan 

It's time to celebrate!

This month kicks off the 10th Anniversary of The Lightning Thief, Book 1 in The Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan! TEN YEARS, PEOPLE! As part of the official "Percy Pack" we are going to be celebrating for the next few months, and celebrating HARD!

As you may or may not know, I am a HUGE HUGE HUGE fan of the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. The man does not disappoint. Ever. I've loved this series since I was a little kid. It taught me so much about Greek mythology that I probably would never have known. I am extremely thankful to be in the PERCY PACK. Literally so excited right now. So here we go with post #1. This one is about some top 10s of the series. First off:

Top 10 Reasons Summer Would Be Better At Camp Half-Blood
  1. Well, if I was there then I'd be a Demi-God, and how cool would that be! I mean besides the monsters always trying to kill you. 
  2. Percy Jackson would be there. *fans face* *faints* *squeals* *fangirls so hard*
  3. I can play capture the flag with a sword. I've always wanted to do that.
  4. Rock-climbing on the ultimate rock-climbing wall.
  5. The adorable Apollo boys. #Notadaughterofapollo
  6. Being right on the beach.
  8. Pegasus riding
  9. Awesome food
  10. Sword fighting
Swords, boys, food, and animals. Where do I sign up!?!?

Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can't seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse--Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy's mom finds out, she knows it's time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he'll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends--one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena--Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.

CELEBRATE PERCY'S 10TH ANNIVERSARY with The Lightning Thief, the book that started the internationally best-selling Percy Jackson and the Olympians series.

*As part of the Percy Pack we are receiving books, merchandise and prizing from Disney-Hyperion. This in no way changes our opinion of the Percy Jackson series, but it makes us like Disney a whole lot. 


  1. Yessss I've read PJO and HOO and I have two favorite characters, sorry I can't choose between them but it's Percy <3333 and Nico <3333 and of course ALL the gods. I LOVE the gods. Especially Hades/Pluto. I literally flailed around every time he was around. Thank thank you for this giveaway, I've been desperately wanting this set of covers but haven't been able to get them just yet!

    I read the original series years ago! I'm finally starting on Heroes of Olympus series now. I really like Annabeth, and Grover. And Percy. I like them together. Also, Rick Riordan does such an amazing job of really building his stories and his characters so that you are completely drawn in and are behind them 100% like they're your own friends and you're waiting for them back at Camp Half Blood.

  3. I read all of them. I love them all! :D And Percy is my favorite. :D

  4. I've read the first few books of the original series. Really love Percy and Grover. I plan to finsh read these this summer!

  5. This is awesome! I love this series so much. Percy and Annabeth are definitely my favorite. How can anyone not love them?

  6. I've read the whole series! (Not HEROES yet, though.) But I don't know if I have a favorite character. They're all so much fun!

    - Shae

  7. My son has read the first 2 and on the 3rd one and is trying to finish it before school is out in a few days. His favorite is Thalia

  8. I've read everything and my favorite character is Percy. I cannot stand Jason, though.

  9. I've read all three of Rick Riordan's series. I think the Heroes of Olympus series is my favorite, but that's just because it has all the characters of Percy Jackson (who doesn't love Percy and Annabeth?) PLUS new Roman characters, too! I listened to the Percy Jackson series (which is adorable in audio), so I don't have physical copies and this is such a gorgeous set! Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. Same! I can't decide between the two! Yeah that was me a while back, the audios were amazing! But I have all of the physical books now. I WISH I had these new covers! Good luck!

  11. OMG SAME!!! Jason isn't even a bad person, he's just too perfect, and he still doesn't live up to Percy Jackson.

  12. I really hope he likes them! They have the audios and those are great for going to bed and long car rides to vacations! Thalia is really great.

  13. You HAVE to read the HOO series! They are really good and Percy is in them which makes it 10x better!

  14. IKR? They're just so loveable. Good Luck!

  15. You need to! The audiobooks are really good too. They're short reads, and REALLY good summer reads. The HOO series is bigger page wise, but soooo worth it

  16. SAME! He's just amazingly amazing. Good Luck!

  17. It's really good, you'll love it! He really does!! Good Luck!

  18. Hahaha it's hard not to love Nico DiAngelo. And Percy is a must-love or else. Hahaha my favorite is Poseidon. Good Luck!

  19. Jill of The O.W.L.June 16, 2015 at 12:23 PM

    I love Grover!!!!!!!

  20. I haven't but my friend's 10 year old always excitingly tells me about each new book, so I would love to read them just to keep up with him! Thanks for sharing!

  21. This is crazy, but I haven't read a single one of them. I just recently picked up The Lightning Thief, and it is on the TBR pile!

  22. I have not read them yet:P
    Thanks for the giveaway:D

  23. I've read them all (PJO & HOO) but Blood of Olympus. Leo and Percy are both my favorites <3

    I've loved PJ for almost 10 years now, I really need to reread all of them. I love so many characters but Grover is just perf.

  25. Yes! I started them in middle school and bonded with fellow bookworm friends over them. I read HOO, too, and loved those books as well even if I sometimes pretend Blood of Olympus never happened. I think my favorite character would either be Annabeth or Nico.

  26. I can't believe I have not yet read this series. It's time to fix this problem.

  27. I have read all of them! Unfortunately it was a while ago and I have been dying to reread them! Of course I love Percy, Annabeth and Grover! It's hard to decide which of the three are my favorite. Thank you for such an amazing giveaway!

  28. Yaaay :D Stunning post Reagan. <3 So happy you love these books so much :D I read all of them just over a year ago. But then I had to wait for the final book, and then I have yet to read it :'( SAD FACE. I just don't feel like picking it up.. I blame the no Percy point of view in it :p But planning on re-reading all the books soonish :) So good. Anyway. Your post is amazing :D Such an awesome thing ;p I was about to be sad about not being able to enter the giveaway, but then remembered that I already own this boxset :p lol. <3

  29. Absolutely LOVE this series! It's my favorite series. Favorite character is definitely Nicole DiAngelo. But I love Percy & Annabeth too! I need to keep going on my reread.

  30. This series is one of the stars of YA!! It's so amazing and I can't wait to read it with my son.
