    Let me start off by saying, although I do love the movie it comes NO WHERE CLOSE to being as good as the book. The movie leaves out so many important and interesting characters and events. After reading this book in high school I fell in love. Rowling creates an amazing new world filled with excitement, magic, and adventure. The characters in the book are creative and memorable. Harry teaches us how to be kind and brave even through the tough stuff. Ron is always there to give us a laugh and to teach us how to have a good time, while Hermione (personally my favorite) teaches us the importance of determination, dedication, and hard-work. There is one thing that these characters really teach us though, and that is how important friendship is. This is a story I could read over and over again. Each time I open us this book I am immediately taken into the magical world of Hogwarts and taken on the most wonderful adventures. Whether it is casting a spell, brewing a potion, flying on my broomstick, or simply exploring the halls and grounds of the castle, I am always swept away.

    Ok, so I really liked this book. I totally want to give away the ending and all the surprises but I want you all to be able to figure out the puzzle pieces on your own! Let me start off by telling you how excited I was that this was a continuation of the Percy Jackson series...LOVED IT! I was so excited I was able to re-immerse myself into the world of demigods at Camp Half-Blood. As an added pleasure I was introduced to many more fun and interesting characters. There were three in particular for the book's focus. First there is Piper, a beautiful daughter of Aphrodite who seems to be able to 'charm" her way through life. Then there is Leo, a pyromanic who is good with a tool. Last of the three, and certainly (in my opinion) the most important, is Jason, a demigod who has had his memory erased by a goddess. These three take on the role of the main characters. Through Riordan's wonderful story I was able to accompany these three on their many adventures. Through times of peril or comedic relief, most of the time I enjoyed the story thoroughly. The beginning started off with lots of action and immediately got me hooked. I will say I got bored at times through the middle when back story was needed for the overall story itself. I knew this book would not disappoint so I trudged on and I was NOT disappointed. I had many questions through this book and many of them were answered at the end. The ending of this book was amazing and did not disappoint. I highly recommend this book. It is a GREAT battle book choice! Let me know what you think!

    Though sand sculpting festivals are fairly common, few are as majestic as the one organized by Belgium's Royal Sand Carvers Society. An annual tradition since 1997, the festival...
