pj The Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan centres around the title character Percy Jackson who is the demigod son of Poseidon going on various adventures with his friends. This is a children’s series, with a target age group of 8-14.

I wish these books had been around when I was a kid, I would have loved them so much. They weren’t terribly bad reading as an adult, but they are amazing for preteens/early teens. I picked up these books when I was longing for something like Harry Potter – which they are not. The Greek mythology background was great, and I think kids especially would actually learn from reading these books. Reading as an adult, I give this series 3.5/5 Stars, however that’s not fair. As a former child:

5/5 Stars
