Ghost of Camp Halfbood

Hilo, hilo! So, I am here to show you this picture that I have created out of boredom.    Tada.

Now, let me explain exactly what this picture is.

It was supposed to be a regular, average girl but I needed to do something about that plain, blank shirt so I colored it orange wrote CHB and now she is a demigod. However, since I couldn’t decide on the skin color and hair, I left it blanked and colored everything else. So, to make a really good excuse of why she is super pale with white hair, let’s just go with ghost. The demigod that was stabbed and became a ghost. The one thing I’m not sure of is whether of not, the ghosts in that world where colorless of not. Haha, question of the day?

I hope you like it!

Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

Love, love, LOVE this series. I read the first book called Cinder last year and let’s just say that I was hooked.

Cinder

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl.

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.

Scarlet 

Cinder returns in the second thrilling installment of the New York Times-bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison—even though if she succeeds, she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive.

Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn’t know about her grandmother and the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she has no choice but to trust him, though he clearly has a few dark secrets of his own.

As Scarlet and Wolf work to unravel one mystery, they find another when they cross paths with Cinder. Together, they must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen who will do anything to make Prince Kai her husband, her king, her prisoner.

Cress

In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and prevent her army from invading Earth.

Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker – unfortunately, she’s being forced to work for Queen Levana, and she’s just received orders to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue goes awry, the group is splintered. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a higher price than she’d ever expected. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai, especially the cyborg mechanic. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.

Winter

Coming out on November 2015

I like how it’s all fairy tale based. Cinder is Cinderella, Scarlet is the Little Red Riding Hood,Cress is Rapunzel, and Winter is Snow White. Although, it may sound weird but it has this really cool combination of cyborgs, fairy tales, and ‘aliens’ which are called Lunars. It is a weird combo when you think about it but the way Marissa Meyer wrote it, it is brilliant. I like the action,romance, and the fact that main female characters aren’t petty damsels in distress. Sometimes, yes, they do need saving but they do help to fight back.

I can’t wait for Winter that comes out next year. That’s so far! Aw, I wish it’s already here because I am really curious of what’s going to happen.

Finally!

Hilo! It took me a whole week but two days ago I finally got, The Blood of Olympus, I’m just so happy right now!

IMG_0389.JPG
All my Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus books. The one without the cover is the Son of Neptune. When I got the book, I took off the cover and put it on the shelf so the cover wouldn’t be damaged. It’s been a few years since I visited that shelf and poof. It’s gone. 😦

 

IMG_0401.JPG
It’s so small compared to the other books! 😡

 

IMG_0399.JPG
NICOOOOO POV!!!!! 🙂

 

IMG_0393.JPG
It sucks that in the very last book we can’t read Percy’s, Annabeth’s, Hazel’s and Franks’s POV. That would have been awesome but I still do very much like who narrates the book.

 

IMG_0395.JPG
Awww yeah! Reyna’s POV! Can’t wait to read about her past! 🙂

 

IMG_0407.JPG
Lol, it looks dramatic with the lighting in my room

 

IMG_0408.JPG

Personally for the US cover, I would have liked to see all Seven in it but it still looks great!

Differences Between the First Percy Jackson Book and Movie

Hilo everybody! Sorry I couldn’t post in the weekend, went camping!

Anyways, I have read the whole series of Percy Jackson and the second series Heroes of Olympus. Me, being the fangirl I am, went to see “Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief,” only to be so disappointed. Nothing is like the book AT ALL.

For those of you, that have not read, seen or even heard about “The Lightning Thief” here’s a summary:

Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is on the most dangerous quest of his life. With the help of a satyr and a daughter of Athena, Percy must journey across the United States to catch a thief who has stolen the original weapon of mass destruction – Zeus’ master bolt. Along the way, he must face a host of mythological enemies determined to stop him. Most of all, he must come to terms with a father he has never known, and an Oracle that has warned him of betrayal by a friend.

Movie

On the Youtube trailer, there was some people that was like,”Why hate the movie because of the book?” The answer to that is simple: think of the Harry Potter books and movies. Compare to that many things were kept the same and not much was changed. Yes, some scenes were taken out but that would be a forever long movie and then your butt becomes numb form seating in that exact position for too long.

Plot

Without a plot, you have no story. Changing that plot, changes the whole story. Exactly what happened with the movie. In the book, the trio, Percy, Annabeth and Grover were sent on a quest to find who stole the Zeus’ master lightning bolt. They went with the permission of Chrion and Dionysus. However, in the movie they went outside camp without the camp directors permission and the whole point was entirely different. Yes, they went to save his mother but the quest in the movie lead to a whole different point. Instead of searching for the master bolt they travel the country for pearls that THEN lead to Hades’ domain. WHAT THE HECK?!? The whole movie was to find pearls but in the book it was later given to them.

Age

Sometimes, age doesn’t matter. In this case, yes it does. Instead of being around 12 years old, they are all already teenagers in high school. Um, what about the prophecy? Oh, in the second movie they just happen to change the whole age thing. Apparently, just because they wanted it to fit a certain age group, they needed older actors and couldn’t stick to the original. In Harry Potter, they used the EXACT same actors(except Dumbledore). Why couldn’t they do that? I don’t know but I really wish they had.

Ending

Oh, the ending. I just hate that stupid ending. Instead of the god of war, Ares, stealing the bolt it was Hades. They changed the whole ‘villain’ of this story. Also, Grover wasn’t supposed to stay in the Underworld, instead they had to leave Sally, Percy’s mother, there.

Since not everything can be in a little category as above, here’s a list of everything else, not in order. Most of things listed down below, is just kinda the main things.

1) Percy was in a private school that was not close to his house, not in a public school a walk away.

2) It never showed the Fates which become very important in the last book(if the movies even goes this far).

3) Book Chiron and Grover pretended that they didn’t know what happened with Mrs. Dodds. Movie Chiron and Grover acted instantly on Percy’s safety and forced him to immediately go to Camp Half-Blood.

4) They know who Percy’s father is after Capture the Flag. Not before with some weird instinct that Poseidon is his father.

5) Annabeth is blonde and does not show any romantic feelings towards Percy yet.

6) Nobody in camp ever wore the Camp Half-Blood t-shirt

camp half blood

7) The cabins are supposed to have all the children from the same god/goddess but if you looked Annabeth and Luke were the only ones living in their cabins. Annabeth and Luke have a lot of siblings so why is it empty?

8) Demigods are not supposed to have technology because it attracts monsters. So why was Luke playing Modern Warfare? Yes, he was evil and all but didn’t anyone ever go inside? Also, why does Percy have an iPod? If his mom knows that his powerful godly smell will attar many monsters shouldn’t she know about technology attraction?

9)  The winged shoes that Luke gave them. Those magical flying converse were activated when they were in the Underworld. Not when they needed to fly on top of Athena’s statue(which didn’t even happen in the book) and to fight against Luke.

10) Yes, a good action movie is good with well, action. But not everything goes like,’talk, run, FIGHT, talk again, funny scene, FIGHT, FIGHT,FIGHT’ The ending with Luke was to me just too much.

11) Oracle never appeared…will Rachel ever make an appearance?

So yup thats basically all those main things. Thanks you reading!

Why Books are Awesome

I always wondered why some people don’t like to read. Take my older brother for example. He doesn’t like to read just for fun,only for assignments. I never did understand why. Books gave us so much more. For example…

Imagination

Spongebob_Imagination_by_kssael

These things pieces of papers with words called books, helps us create a world that, sadly, isn’t real. Have you ever watched or seen Harry Potter? JK Rowling creates this magical world with dragons and evil no-nosed villain. She helps us dream of a world of Quidditich and weird named candy. We think of things that could happen. Will he die? Will Hermonie and Draco ever be together? What happens if Lily and James were still alive? These questions helps inspire fan writers to write fan fictions.

Academics 

academics

Books has words. From big words,to small words. To complicated words, to the simplest words there is in the entire world. In my personal experience, books helps me in the academic side in my life. When I read, sometimes I find words I don’t really understand. Context clues helps me but not all the time. That’s why we have dictionaries or the internet. Make those new words stick in your brain. You never know when you are going to need them later.

Relieving Boredom or Stress

pg44-boredom-getty

Sorry to break the news to you but not every second of your life is going to be fun with friends or families. You aren’t always going to be laughing with your group or hanging out. Sometimes you are going to be stuck in your house with nothing to do. The cure for this? Reading.

Stress can be mild or severe. It can take over your brain and give you headaches. This can be caused by work, school, or your everyday life. You need a stress reliever. I suggest reading as one of them. Or napping.
