The Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus Book Tag // Middle Grade Recs, Unexpected Gems, & Fangirling!!

2020 was singlehandedly saved by Rick Riordan announcing the Percy Jackson TV show adaptation.

I know how dramatic that sounds, but I’m really not exaggerating that much…this is probably the best piece of news I’ve heard in recent months!! After a childhood spent loving Percy Jackson and the Olympians and then later waiting for the releases of each new Heroes of Olympus novels eagerly, and then being disappointed by the movies that did come out, this new has been a long time coming.

I honestly can’t believe there’s going to be a TV show about Percy Jackson with all the details and different seasons for each book?? This is a reader’s dream.🥺 Along with the rest of the Percy Jackson fanbase, I’ve been properly freaking out over this news, so naturally I was very excited that May created a book tag about PJO/HoO, because now I have the chance to scream about it on my blog!

A huge thank you to May (the creator), Lily, and Rhi for tagging me to take part in this- I adore all three of them both as humans and as bloggers, so if you haven’t already checked out their content before, I can assure you that you most definitely want to. I’m very appreciative of their tagging me, and I really just am so excited to participate!

Before I get any further in the post, I want to acknowledge the Black Lives Matter movement going on right now and urge you all to seek justice, take any and all action that you can, educate yourselves, and speak out! I encourage you to visit this link for access to many resources. I saw a quote on social media this week that said “make this a movement, not a moment,” and I pray that with that mindset and the participation of everyone, long-term change can be made.

Call Down the Hawk (Dreamer Trilogy, #1)This was hard to narrow down! I’ve been thinking about certain books that are contenders for being in my top 10 list for the year, but I hadn’t tried to pick just one yet. I think I have to go with Call Down the Hawk because it exceeded the high expectations I had for it and it was genuinely such a well-written story with exciting characters, things I didn’t see coming, and of course I got to read more about Ronan Lynch, which was very exciting to me.

I feel like as long as you go in with the mindset that this isn’t The Raven Cycle and don’t compare the two (I feel like they have really different vibes), you’re golden with CDTH.

The Raven King (The Raven Cycle, #4)Not to make this post all about Maggie Stiefvater, but to make this post all about Maggie Stiefvater: I hold the personal opinion that her writing is genius. Beyond genius. I used The Raven King here because while the foreshadowing, plotting, and overall writing throughout the whole series is phenomenal, everything really pulls together in this final book.

I don’t know how she comes up with these plotlines and these deep, well-developed characters and talking trees and slow burn romances but here they are?? And I love them.

The How and the WhyI don’t know for certain if I’d say this book is necessarily under-hyped, but I don’t think I’ve seen too many blogs mention The How and the Why– and I didn’t discover it from blogging, I found it randomly on the library shelves, and here we are.

I never wrote a review for this and I read it quite a while ago now, but it made it onto my favorites of 2019 list, and I remember getting really sucked into the story and finding myself caring a lot about the characters quickly. I especially enjoyed the family relationships, including the relationship of the main character with her adoptive family, and the dual perspective between Cassie and her birth mom as a teenager.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn HugoHate is a strong word for my answer on this one, but I remember being pretty hesitant going into The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. Not only was it incredibly hyped up, but it was in the adult section of my library, and I’m usually a YA (or MG) only kind of reader. However, I’m so glad I ended up reading it, because I really loved it!

The plot of this story was seamless, and the balance between glamour and raw emotions was done so well. I definitely would recommend this with all my being!

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)I’m not even .01% surprised that my answer for this one is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. No matter how much time passes and how many amazing books I read, I don’t think anything can ever hit differently than Harry Potter for me! (Though Percy Jackson comes really close and holds a whole different space in my heart.)

Harry’s first Christmas at Hogwarts, him becoming best friends with Ron and Hermione, his discovery of Quidditch, Voldemort only being powerful enough to be the back of a head- good vibes all around. Hogwarts feels like home for me.

The Lost & FoundThis is actually a book I just read and am hoping to later do a full review on, but I absolutely adored the sibling relationship in The Lost and Found!

The book is written from dual perspectives of the two main characters, Frannie and Louis, who are both on separate journeys in pursuit of their own goals, but also in pursuit of each other. As they’re on their way to find each other, you get to spend a lot of time with both of them individually, and Louis’ relationship with his twin sister, Willa, was perfection. They were definitely each others’ confidant and their open, protective relationship was so sweet to read about.

A Quiet Kind of ThunderAnother recent read of mine- but when I read A Quiet Kind of Thunder, I’m pretty sure time was the farthest thing from my mind. I read it on a road trip, and I literally couldn’t stop reading it until I finished it.

The utterly adorable romance (like I think I would move to England solely for Rhys, the love interest), how much I was able to learn about one of the main character’s deafness and the other main character’s selective muteness, the way I was completely invested in the story and the side characters- I couldn’t put it down. (And it was a buddy read with Annie which obviously made it all the more fun.)

The Hate U GiveI think The Hate U Give was one of the first hyped books I read, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Even though it’s been over two years since I read it, I still remember how eye opening this book was for me and how much it gave me a new, more educated perspective on police brutality in America. Though the messages in it have been applicable for generations, they’re especially prevalent with everything going on in the world right now!

In addition to the incredible messages, and along with the characters that I adored (Starr is so inspirational, and I also remember loving her relationship with her family), this book blew me away- as it did to so many others!

9 calypso

Anne of Green Gables (Anne of Green Gables, #1)I love Anne of Green Gables immeasurably and would definitely choose it to be marooned on an island with!! Anne has adventure, humor, sweetness, tugs at your heartstrings, is guaranteed to brighten your day- I mean, Anne Shirley would probably be the best person to be marooned on an island with, so the book is the next best thing.

If I would have to be stuck on an island somewhere, I would at least want it to be surrounded by Anne’s antics so I could be provided with entertainment and nostalgia.

Lucky CallerI really hope I love Lucky Caller! I’m absolutely trash for all of Emma Mills’s other novels so my fingers are crossed that I feel the same about this one. I’ve only rated Foolish Hearts and Famous in a Small Town five stars, so maybe this is a risk?? But also, this book contains the same amazing writing, wholesome dialogue, and a romantic interest that can rival Gideon or August, I’m pretty positive it’ll get five stars.

Darius the Great Deserves Better (Darius the Great, #2)I am actually The Worst at keeping up with upcoming novels…but one I do know of for sure is Darius the Great Deserves Better. Please. Just hit me with the brick now so that I can read it, thank you very much. Also I’m stealing May’s answer for this one and I’m aware of that, so thank you May for enlightening me to the existence of this novel.

I feel like sequels to contemporaries happen way too scarcely!! Sometimes I like a book wrapping up and me just assuming everything turns out exactly how I’d imagined it, but…I really can’t stop screaming over how we get to see what happens to Darius after Darius the Great. So yes, I’d take the brick for it.

12 piper

A Wish in the DarkSince May created this tag, I feel like it’s only just if I put a book here that she convinced me to read- and I’m sure I could find many that fit that, but the most recent one is probably A Wish in the Dark.

This book made my heart so happy, what with the adorable friendship (they were like brothers!), the underlying messages of social injustices, the fact that it’s middle grade, the beautiful cover, the kind monk who helps the main character, Pong- genuinely everything. Thank you for convincing me to read it, May!!

13 leo

My Lady Jane (The Lady Janies, #1)I will probably never stop putting My Lady Jane for any tag prompt that asks about funny books, because I’m not quite sure that it will ever stop making me laugh every time I reread it (which is a lot. because it’s FUNNY).

The way that the authors somehow managed to make historical fiction(ish) have a fantasy twist and become thrilling and adventurous and romantic and suspenseful and at the end of the day, hilarious? Complete genius. I actually laughed out loud while reading this and I hope you will too!

14 hazel

The Candymakers (The Candymakers, #1)With my recent return to reading more middle grade, I’ve been reflecting a lot on the middle grade I read when I was younger, and some of that reflecting has led me to remember that Wendy Mass is probably my favorite MG author. And, though it’s hard to pick exactly, I think my favorite Wendy Mass book is the The Candymakers!

No matter how old I get, I don’t think a book about a candy competition, told from the perspectives of four different kids with unique voices, personalities, and backstories will ever get boring. This story is creative, entertaining, and at the end of the day is just about wholesome friendships and candy.

15 frank

SadieI’d say the word “afraid” could describe my general experience with Sadie. Although I find thriller shows scarier than thriller books, I’d say reading this book at 2 am alone in my room while being the only person awake in my house wasn’t my finest idea.

I was so stressed throughout the duration of this book and was honestly scared to reach the end because I had no idea what was coming. Since the ending ended up shocking me beyond belief, that fear was rightfully there! I’d still recommend this book though, it was an amazing mystery and I was definitely intrigued.

16 reyna

The Selection (The Selection, #1)I honestly don’t know? The closest thing I can think of is The Selection…although I feel like not everyone hates it? However, my love for it may not be shared by many. It’s okay, I can most definitely deal with the fact that I have an addiction to trashy romance books (and TV shows) and that I enjoy them anyway.

I think if I reread this today, I wouldn’t love it near as much as I did in sixth grade, but sixth grade Olivia stands by her…five star review.

17 octavian

The Lost Hero (The Heroes of Olympus, #1)I couldn’t make this post if I didn’t mention at least one book from PJO or HOO, so I’m going to pick The Lost Hero for this!! Because even though I genuinely enjoyed it and I really liked Jason, Piper, and Leo’s storyline (and Festus!!), I remember basically spending this whole book crying over Percy not being in it?? So I’d punch some sense into this book and get Percy to reappear.

I also think The Mark of Athena belongs in this category, solely for the cliffhanger. However, the Percabeth in this book is absolute perfection and cannot be matched.

18 percabeth

Foolish HeartsWell. I would pick Percabeth, but I feel like that’s a given so! I’m going to go with Foolish Hearts because it is one of my favorite books and I would be amiss not to mention it, and I will go down with this ship.

Give me the soft, sunflower boys who eat cereal in weird ways and let their little sisters come to their birthday party and the girl who plays video games with her siblings and loves her best friend and becomes boy band obsessed and is completely oblivious to the charms of said sunflower boy!! I will likely love them forever.

I can’t say enough how amazing these prompts are and how much I love the graphics May made! I also wanted to note that May is keeping a running list of everyone who participated on her original tag post, so if you’re interested in reading more of this tag you should definitely check that out.

I tag…🔱

I will zero percent be offended if you don’t take part in this tag (though it was a lot of fun so I recommend ;)), and if I didn’t take you and you want to take part, please still feel free!

Thank you again to May for creating this, and to Rhi, Lily, and May for tagging me to take part in this! I had way too much fun writing this, as I can tell by the fact that it is 2.4k words and I’m still typing. If you read even half of this, I love you, thank you! (Correction: I love you no matter how much you read of this.)

I hope you are all doing well and staying safe! Sending all the virtual hugs.✨

Are you a Percy Jackson fanatic? What middle grade books do you like? Have you read any of the books I mentioned? I would love to talk in the comments with you.

    • I really think you’ll love A Wish in the Dark! It’s so heartwarming and wholesome. I also do think you’ll enjoy My Lady Jane~ the humor!! the romance!! it’s all very on point. I so agree with CDTH!! I think I went into it expecting something like TRC and that was absolutely not what it was, but I couldn’t have loved the vibe and what it did give me more.🤗Thank you so much, Rhi, and thank you again for tagging me!! Much love xx

  2. great answers, Olivia! despite the author’s controversy, HP will always feel like home for me, it’s just too familiar and nostalgic! ❤ i also love the raven king- i don't always understand what's going on in the series but the ones i do… it's just amazing how everything fell into place!

    • Thank you so much, Tasya! Yes, I agree- though I really do have to separate the series itself from the author, I think I’m able to do that because of the amount of nostalgia it holds for me.💛 Haha, that’s me with TRC! The plot sometimes is beyond me but the characters really pull it together, and The Raven King just made my heart soar. Happy reading to you! xx

  3. I can’t wait to read A Quiet Kind of Thunder – Nish picked it up on a whim last year & ADORED it, so that’s always a good sign 😍 I put off reading The Hate U Give for SO long because I was worried about the hype & also I felt like I need to be in the right headspace for it, but my GOD it was one of my favourite reads last year. I 100% think it should be on every required reading list!

    Hahaha it’s so funny that you think The Selection is a series everyone hates? I feel like everyone loves it and Nish & I are one of the select (see what I did there 😏) few who can’t stand the series 😅

    • That’s so exciting! I loved it so much and I hope you do too.💖 You’re absolutely right, The Hate U Give would be such a great required reading novel, especially for high school students. The messages are so important!

      Oh, I might be completely off on that, haha! I wasn’t sure if I was correct in saying everyone hates it, but I was thinking more that even though most people love it, it’s more of a nostalgic kind of love rather than viewing it as a high quality novel.😂

      Thank you so much!! Ohh, I will definitely be sharing more of my thoughts on The Lost & Found in reviews to come. As a slight spoiler, I really enjoyed it! It was really different than the last book I read by the author, which was Summer of Salt, but I loved them both. OKAY YES, I CAN’T BELIEVE THERE’S ANOTHER DARIUS BOOK. I will always scream about this with you!! xx

    Anne of Green Gables is one of my all-time fave classics, I just adore Anne and all her antics. I still need to watch Anne with an E but I’ve heard good things about it!
    And The Hate U Give is also one of my forever faves – it was just so incredible and one I constantly reread.

      I love Anne immeasurably. I’ve watched the first season of Anne With an E and I liked it! I haven’t watched the other seasons yet but I might have to make that a summer goal because I remember being really impressed with the episodes I did watch. I felt like all the characters were perfectly casted and the cinematography was beautiful!
      Same here- except I need to do a reread of THUG really soon. Thank you for reading and commenting, Emme! xx

    ahhh A Wish In The Dark made my heart so happy too, and omg i totally forgot how much i used to love The Candymakers!! it was definitely a childhood favorite of mine, i loved the characters so much. 🥺 also yes the romance in Foolish Hearts is perfection. i loved reading your answers to this, Olivia!! ❤❤

  10. hahah, the only good news we got this 2020 really was the percy jackson tv show adaptation. i am incredibly excited for it and rick being a part of the process makes me even more hopeful.
    i really want to read call down the hawk, but i think it’s time i shift my expectations then. you’re the first person i hear talking about how different this book is from the raven cycle, which i think is very important, because wrong expectations can really damage a reading experience!
    cynthia hand’s books are actually rather popular where i live, but i hardly ever see people in the blogging community talking about her books! i hear they’re very sad, which is probably why i’ve been putting them off, hahah.
    i seriously would totally get hit by a brick for the chance to read darius the great deserves better. i am so excited for this book, while also hesitant, because love triangles are not my favorite but i trust this author enough to believe he’ll do an amazing job with it!
    speaking of adaptations, i know the selection will be getting one! it’s been a long time since i last read these books too and i ended up not really enjoying the conclusion of the series, but i am pretty sure i will watch the show regardless when it comes out, because ofc, hahah. i hope it’s a good adaptation and brings more diversity to the original story, because that’s something i had a slight gripe with.
    (also yes the fact there was an ENTIRE BOOK in heroes of olympus with no percy on it is Outrageous).

    • That’s very accurate! I can’t wait for it either, and I completely agree that Rick Riordan being a part of it is going to hopefully make it super accurate and even more amazing.
      I really do think you’ll enjoy it! I definitely agree and I think as long as you don’t go in expecting it to be just like TRC, you’ll really enjoy it and getting to know the Lynch brothers and new characters.
      Oh, really? That’s so interesting! I’ve only read The How and the Why and then she’s one of the co-authors of The Lady Janies, and I’ve read those. I need to check out her other books as well since I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve read so far. Haha, I should be smart enough to avoid sad books but I don’t and later regret that decision again and again…
      Okay same though?? Oh, I didn’t realize there was a love triangle! That makes me a little sad, because I don’t love them, but I’m pretty sure I would read this book even if it had every cliche trope ever because I love Darius that much.😂
      I’m hyped for the Selection adaptation! I haven’t read the books in forever, and I know they’re trash but I also know there’s so much potential for the adaptation to be amazing. That’s such a good point and I really hope they bring more diversity to the story as well!
      I agree?! Like what was Rick thinking with that one.

I read about a hundred pages before I put it down, but from reading them, I can already agree with you that Anne would be the perfect person to be stuck on an island with!!

    I’m so happy that Darius the Great is getting a sequel! When I read it one I felt that the ending didn’t really wrap things up, and I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book! The Candymakers is one of my favorite middle-grade books!! I used to reread it SO often when I was younger, it was such an amazing book!! And aah I was also so scared to reach the end of Sadie, I had to read it in one sitting to see what happened. I loved reading your answers!

      I’m hyped for it as well! I can’t believe one of my favorite contemporaries is getting a sequel…the happiest news ever. The Candymakers is so so good! I really want to reread it this summer because it has the best vibes and I’m sure it’ll transport me back to my childhood. Oh, yes, Sadie was honestly terrifying but so so good at the same time.

I think my sister had to read it for school once- but, I just looked it up and it looks interesting so onto the TBR it goes.☺️ The Selection!! I feel like it’s so intriguing and even though it may not be a novel of the highest quality, it’s certainly sure to provide you with entertainment. So if you’re looking for a book simply for pure enjoyment, I would say go for it! Thank you for this comment, Macey xx

    • Thank you so much for creating this tag!! I genuinely loved writing this post.💗 A Wish in the Dark’s greatness (and heartwarming factor) was unmatched, thank you for recommending it to me, ahh!

      Thank you! I actually read it recently and I ended up really liking it (kind of to my surprise), but I’m sorry to hear it wasn’t your favorite. Foolish Hearts still has my heart the most though…and ahh, I can’t wait for the sequel to Darius the Great!! I’m anxiously awaiting it but mostly just excited because I have high hopes.🥺

      I know right?? I couldn’t sleep after finishing it because it was super late and I was the only one awake, haha. Of course, thank you for tagging me and for spreading the PJO love! xx
