"That was Chris Rodriguez!" Annabeth took off her cap and turned visible. "You remember - from Cabin Eleven."

- The Sea of Monsters

... :|

I have no life. (Spoiler warning: Young Wizards || PJ & O, in that those are wiki links)

This book's going kind of slowly, and not just because I have to be by Pewter to read it. I can't shake the feeling that Rick Riordan is patronizing me. My fault for juggling books with very different styles, maybe?

Meanwhile, my brain has also latched onto Tom and Carl so hard, I'm a little embarrassed. The Book of Night with Moon is also going much more slowly than the others. I'm enjoying it, but I keep having to look up translations in the back and it's sort of forcing me to think more human in order to understand it. I'm not sure it should be compared to Watership Down. After enough time with that, I felt like I was thinking in rabbit, but thinking feline is still very mysterious.

Rick Riordan is exciting, but yeah. Not really that...deep or good, in comparison? At least in my opinion. (I don't remember this! Clearly I need to reread~ Good thing my brother begged mom to buy all 5 of them...)

I like the characters, the premise is cute, and the plot is fine. I think it's just the writing style I may need time adjusting to. There's a character in this series that I'm waiting for, which helps.

I'm going to finish these books. (But I'm also going to finish the Eragon books, so. Maybe I mean I'm going to finish these books and enjoy it. That is the plan.)

I haven't read Eragon at all. Nice to see you making good use of vacation time~

Thalia? And something with Luke. I'm semi-spoiled but don't tell please.

I probably shouldn't be allowed to talk about Eragon. I didn't like it, and I haven't bothered to figure out how fair my criticism is. Because I don't care. (Apologies to anyone coming across this who enjoyed it; I'm sure you've given it more thought than I have.) The movie was pretty, though.

Yup. Hush you. I was just distracted by the random appearance of not!Kit and "little things amuse little minds."
