Happy Tuesday and a very, very happy birthday to Percy Jackson! In celebration of one of my favourite character’s birthday, I decided that I would dedicate today’s Quote Corner to Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods! I’ve always adored Percy’s bravery, selflessness, love for his friends and family, and especially his sense of humour, which really shone through in this book.
Happy reading!! ❤
I wake up every morning and think: You know what would be good today? Not dying.
I mean, five gods in one stomach—dang. That’s enough for doubles tennis, including a ref. They’d been down there so long, they were probably hoping Kronos would swallow down a deck of cards or a Monopoly game.
Hermes played a little Mozart and some One Direction, and Apollo cried, ‘I must have it! The girls will go wild for that!”
He was also the god of (take a deep breath) commerce, languages, thievery, cheeseburgers, trickery, eloquent speaking, feasts, cheeseburgers, hospitality, guard dogs, birds of omen, gymnastics, athletic competitions, cheeseburgers, cheeseburgers and telling fortunes with dice. Okay, I just tossed in the cheeseburgers to see if you were paying attention. Also, I’m hungry.
You can’t swing a cat in Ancient Greece without hitting one of Zeus’s ex-girlfriends.
Not only was this book laugh-out loud hilarious, especially when I was a kid, but it was also very educational! The Percy Jackson series kick-started my fascination and obsession with Greek mythology when I was younger and this book taught me so much more about it in a fun and entertaining way. This passion still remains with me, and I even took a class about Greek Civilization in my second semester of university earlier this year.
This book also includes gorgeous illustrations that truly elevated the reading experience.
