BookTubeAThon Challenge Three: Book to Movie adaptation

3/ Read and watch a book to movie adaptation.
Heroes of Olympus, the Son of Neptune – Rick Riordan

I cheated just a little bit with this challenge and decided to watch Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief as that is still an adaptation of a Rick Riordan book. Also, it is kind of fitting watching Percy Jackson find himself as the son of Poseidon in the film version of the first of the Percy Jackson series. Then for him to re-find himself as the son of Neptune (roman version) in the second of the Heroes of Olympus series.

The Films have always been disappointing adaptations of the books for me. However, they are still entertaining to watch every now and again when you get over the major plot differences. I may watch the Sea Of Monsters this week too, it will keep the Rick Riordan hype going a little longer. I certainly prefer the books to the films though. At the moment I am also preferring the Percy Jackson series to the Heroes of Olympus series. That may be because I am only just starting with this series though and am biased about the first series.

A full book review will be up soon explaining my thoughts and feelings surrounding Heroes of Olympus, The Son of Neptune.


As always, happy reading xxx
