    evaali1920's book review was featured in The Heroes of Olympus, Book One The Lost Hero (new cover).
    Imagine if the greek gods were real, and were still alive today. Imagine if there were demigods, roaming the Earth, that we humans knew nothing about. Well, in The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan, you get to see what a world like that would be like; through the demigod’s points of view. In The Lost Hero, each character is facing a different conflict. Earlier in his life, Leo was tricked by the evil primordial god of the earth Gaea to use his fire powers (An attribute that is very rare for a son of Hephaestus to have) for bad. Gaea manipulated his firepower so that he burned down the mechanic shop his mom-owned, and his mom died in the fire. So now he doesn’t want to use his fire powers in fear that he will hurt someone again. Jason lost his memory, so he can’t remember anything that's happened before he woke up on a school bus. Piper is sad because she remembers that Jason and her were boyfriend and girlfriend, but none of the relationship was real, it was just a trick of the mist (the mist basically hides the gods, demigods and greek monsters from humans, although some humans have a gift to see through the mist). The setting of the book is in the USA, in modern times, and for most of the book at a camp called Camp Half-Blood; which is a camp for demigods of greek gods, which all of the main characters are. The main antagonist in the book series is Gaea. Gaea is the Greek primordial goddess of the Earth, which means she was created near the beginning of time. She has been asleep for eons but is now waking up to overthrow the gods. Basically, a lot of the enemies that the main characters face that aren’t Gaea are working for Gaea, like the giant Enceladus, who was keeping Piper's dad captive on Mount Diablo; that giant was working for Gaea. One of the most important memory moments of the book was when Jason got most of his memory back and remembered that he was a son of Jupiter, which is the roman version of Zeus, which means he is Roman and not Greek. This memory moment then makes all of the characters have the biggest aha-moment of the story that sets the scene for the next book in the series. Overall, The Lost Hero is a great book and I would recommend it to anyone who has finished the Percy Jackson series and is left with the feeling of wanting more, or, for anybody who is interested in greek mythology and a great and hard-to-put-down book.

    chatho1920's book review was featured in Drama.
    Have you ever devised the perfect plan to achieve your dreams but found that constant interference from others was holding you back? In Raina Telgemeier’s Drama, the protagonist, an outgoing, theater-loving middle schooler named Callie, is forced to deal with school drama both onstage and offstage. The setting for most of this story is Eucalyptus Middle School, where Callie works as the set designer for her school’s theater production of Moon over Mississippi. She has a lot of ambitious ideas as to how the cast and crew can create the perfect production, however, she encounters numerous difficulties. For one, the limits relating to budget, materials, and time are causing her some trouble, and to top it all off, her fellow stage crew and actors aren’t getting along very well, and Callie ends up caught in the very middle of it. She has to persevere through it all and try her hardest to make the production the best it can be. A memory moment Callie has in the story is a memory of the first theater production she ever saw and how much it inspired her. She recalled wanting to adopt the roles of characters in productions, but eventually she realized that it wasn’t her strong suit. That didn’t stop her from continuing to learn about the various aspects of theater, and she ended up joining the Eucalyptus Middle School Stage Crew during her 6th grade year. This was how she first got involved in theater and how she would become the set designer for Moon over Mississippi. Anyone who likes a good graphic novel, is interested in theater, or enjoys an amusing story involving some classic school drama might like this book.

    I thought that this movie was great, unlike some other book-based movies, this movie really reflected the book in a good way that made sense. If you read the Harry Potter books or are just interested in this movie, I would highly recommend it.

    Out of all of the Iron man movies, this one was definitely my favorite. There's a lot of good action sequences and a very good plot with some unexpected plot twists that make this movie overall a very good movie.

    This has definitely been my favorite movie ever since it came out. I love the narrative and it closes the Avengers era quite nicely. It adds to the characters' personalities really well and the choices with what happens to them. 5/5 would watch again!

    One of my favorite movies when it comes to Christmas traditions. I love the characters and it's some pretty good slapstick comedy too. I'm OBSESSED with practical effects and for the time this was made, they were quite good, not quite to THE THING levels, but good none the less. 4/5, will stay a family tradition for years.
