    mybooksandi's book review was featured in The Dark Prophecy (The Trials of Apollo).
    Ahhhh…. My winter break read. Before we get started, I am just going to put it out there, Rick Riordan is an artist. (Speaking from an actual artist’s perspective). He writes with such flow and ease that it feels like he is simply moving a brush against a canvas. Too metaphorical? I know, I realized. My point is, is that Rick Riordan’s books are works of art. (Is that a better metaphor for you!?) His whole fandom is based on a sort-of fractured mythology. (That is a phrase that I just created). Now, let’s stop talking about the beautiful, enchanting works of Uncle Rick that I adore with a full passion, and start with TTOA; The Dark Prophecy. ***Characters*** As you all would know the main character is no other than (!) Lord Apollo himself, which you would know if you read the first book. In which case, WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU DOING READ THE FIRST BOOK (AND MY FABULOUS REVIEW). Apollo (or poor pimple-filled Lester) – Apollo (or Lester) was the sort of character that you could not-not like. I loved being in his first person mind and reading how his thoughts about puny mortals (which I certainly am not) changed throughout the novel. For example- “ ‘Let the girl go,’ I whimpered through the pain. ‘Kill me and let her go’ “ And then, after his life flashed before his eyes, he thought, “I surprised myself. These were not the last words I had planned.” Meg McCaffrey- Meg was pretty, um, outgoing? She was the kind of person that didn’t really care about what will happen to her. You could say that she was Lester’s (Apollo) sidekick? But technically by the book, he really is her servant. You know what, I cannot explain this in a review, so GO READ THE NOVEL! There were other characters out there like Leo, Calypso, Emmie, and that other lady that was with Emmie that I forgot her name. Was it Jorge? Joe? Yea, it was Joe. Oh, and you can’t forget my buddy Lit! JUST LISTEN TO ME AND READ THE BOOK, YOU’LL UNDERSTAND MY JIBBERING… ***Build-up*** As I said in my first paragraph, Uncle Rick’s wonderful world is completely amazing. I, if you do not already know, am a rising author. I am trying to type a wonderful, original novel. Rick Riordan is GOALS, his writing is (I repeat) magnificent. His writing flows like paint. HE IS AN ARTIST! Okay, I’ll stop with the art references. In all, I really enjoyed this winter read. It was completely amazing and entertaining. And now, I bestow upon you a five-star rating. Congratulations, you stole Lana’s heart.

    mybooksandi's book review was featured in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay.
    Ooooookay, here goes nothing… Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them (FBAWTFT) was a novel (or script) that I loved/enjoyed. It was nowhere near Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, which was a complete disappointment… No, this is not the Cursed Child anymore because IT IS WRITTEN BY NO OTHER THAN THE AUTHOR HERSELF, JK ROWLING. Pheeeew…. This novel was AMAZING, it was surreal. I loved how JK Rowling based the whole thing on your knowledge of Harry Potter. Ex- Nifflers, Muggles, Ministry Of Magic, etc. ***Characters*** Newt Scamander is nearing the nickname, Lana’s Little Nugget Part 2, right after Ron Weasley. He is such a fragile little person, but ironically he is a full grown adult. I’ll give you a moment to think about that. Tina and Newt were the PERFECT duo. What I loved about this pair is because they love each other… as friends. They care about each other, and they do not fall in love like the typical boy and girl pair. Jacob was a very nice played character. I really liked how JK Rowling included a non-magic person. It was special because Jacob stayed and helped Newt and Tina even though he is not fighting his own battle. Doesn’t make sense? I don’t get it either. Queenie was… interesting. I’ve read about legilimency before in the Harry Potter films. But I’ve never read about a person that can do it so well. Did Voldemort do it well? I don’t think JK Rowling mentioned any of that. Hey! Person that didn’t read this book, this next paragraph contains spoilers…BEWARE….. Credence seems like a not-important-just-ignore-me-constantly-showing-up-kind-of-character. I just feel that he is misunderstood, not evil. In the movie, it shows that Senator Shaw picked up a paper that he dropped and said, Go put this in the garbage where you belong. And then, KABOOOOM. Senator Shaw is dead. Then, Marie Lou threatens him and, BOOM! She is dead. Lesson: Never annoy random squibs that are harnessing their powers. Okay, spoilers are done. You can uncover your eyes. Wait, no I am lying. Just a bit… Graves was…intimidating. Who’ve guessed that he was BEEP,BEEP,BEEP Grindelwald? But, they do have the same hair style so, should I say I saw it coming? Spoilers are done, please sit back in your seat and stop running around like an ostrich. In all, the novel was pretty good. (Oh, and the movie too). Both of these got a solid 4 stars from moi. Until next time, I’ll cry so JK Rowling can write yet another fantastic (beasts) novel.

    mybooksandi liked a comment in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay.
    This book is amazing by the one and only JK. ROWLING. This author is one of best authors I read in all times due to her bestselling Harry Potter series together with 450 million copies world wide. The Fantastic Beast is a screenplay of the movie. The book is about a guy named Newt Scamander who came from England to New York just to explore and find more magical creatures to make sure they are kept safe especially the creature named Credence. Newt also wanted to make a book about the benefits of these magical creatures, where they can be found such as a Niffler. But during his journey to New York he by accident swap cases with someone named Jacob Kowalski. From there Newt creatures escape to the city which gives troubles to New York. This is a brief of the story and I will rate it 5/5 due to a book of JK.Rowling taking you to explore the wizarding world.
