Quickie #8

Broken Hart (The Hart Family, #1)Broken Hart by Ella Fox
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

It's pretty sad that within a few days of finishing this book I actually had very little memory of what the story was about, apart from there being a lot....A LOT...of sex scenes. Now, I am all for a quick smutty read once in a while, but I usually prefer there to be some kind of plot that doesn't involve the main characters having wild monkey sex.

The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus, #1)The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Having been a HUGE fan of the Percy Jackson books, i was of course super excited to read the first book in the spin series, Heroes Of Olympus. For the most part, this book didn't let me down.

Riordan has a knack for writing wonderfully quirky characters that i grow to love very quickly. And while I can't say that i didn't miss the presence of my beloved Percy (because I did. A lot.), i had a blast reading this book. In fact, I honestly think that it is impossible for me not to enjoy a Riordan book. They are always a fun, action-packed escape from reality that is much needed in my day to day life.

And even though the new set of misfit children born of the gods and goddesses of Olympus were engaging, I have to say I am thrilled that the next book is much more focused on Mr Jackson.
