July Wrap-Up and August TBR

  I traveled to Europe last month so I didn't have that much time to read but I managed to read three books. I really liked all of them and I'm happy that I finally read them because I've been wanting to read them for a while.

1- Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe (5/5)
   I wrote a review of this book if you wanna check it out click here.
   This book was on my July TBR so √

2- The Selection (5/5)
   Check my review of The Selection here.
    This book was on my July TBR so √

3- J. Smith (4/5)
   This book I bought at the Windsor Castle gift shop in England. It's a different kind of book and I'll probably talk about it later and put the link here as well.

Now my August TBR

Tales of the Greek Heroes 

 I actually read half of this book last month and finished the other half at the beginning of August. I'll probably write a review later. I got this book at the British Museum in London. 

The mysterious and exciting legends of the gods and heroes in Ancient Greece, from the adventures of Perseus, the labours of Heracles and the voyage of Jason and the Argonauts to Odysseus and the Trojan wars.

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief

  I've been wanting to reread the Percy Jackson series for a while and after reading the "Tales of the Greek Heroes" I decided that that's what I am going to do. 

Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can't seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse—Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy's mom finds out, she knows it's time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he'll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends—one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena—Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.

Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters

The heroic son of Poseidon makes an action-packed comeback in the second must-read installment of Rick Riordan's amazing young readers series. Starring Percy Jackson, a "half blood" whose mother is human and whose father is the God of the Sea, Riordan's series combines cliffhanger adventure and Greek mythology lessons that results in true page-turners that get better with each installment. In this episode, The Sea of Monsters, Percy sets out to retrieve the Golden Fleece before his summer camp is destroyed, surpassing the first book's drama and setting the stage for more thrills to come.

   Well, that's it. What do you plan on reading this month?
