I think that certain books speak to us when we read themt…I have read a book and loved it and then read it a few years later and thought it was kind of lamen…so some of it is reading the right book at the right time. Authors like J.K. Rowling and Rick Riordan, who have had uncommonly good success, must feel a lot of pressure as they write new things. I suppose it isne’t any different than someone who has a hit song or album or movie. Pixar seems to have it figured out though. : )
I love the lost hero!!!!!!!!!!!! I ttly understand why rick riordan put in a son of hephaustus and aphrodite (IDK if I spelled that rite.) But yea he wanted to make up for Silena and Beckendorf. And rite now I hate Hera for taking Percy ’s memory and I hate how Rick Riordan isnt making a new book until NEXT YEAR!!!!!!!!!! I am very sorry to all those ppl out there wondering y Im all weird and stuff over books. But I JUST finished reading the book so I need to get over it by doing some blogging.
