Percy Jackson

Last night, I watched Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief. It was interesting. The story is about Percy Jackson who is half human and half god. His father is Poseidon, the God of The Ocean. I like this story because it involves Greek's (or Roman or whatsoever) gods which I love so much. 

Just now, I went to a bookshop to search for the novel To Sir With Love. Fara asked for my help to find the novel. Unfortunately, I didn't find it. I've asked the people in the shop but they said, they don't have it. Poor Fara. Anyway, I was just about to leave the store when I bumped into Percy Jackson series. There are 6 of them.

01. Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief
02. Percy Jackson & The Sea of Monsters
03. Percy Jackson & The Titan's Curse
04. Percy Jackson & The Battle of The Labyrinth 
05. Percy Jackson & The Last Olympian


06. Percy Jackson : The Demigod Files 

The most shocking part is, I bought ALL of them. Yes! All 6 of them. For those who know me well, it's a shocking news because I don't read novels. Let alone buying novels. Well, believe it or don't.

I don't really know why I bought those books but I realized one thing during this holiday. I spent most of my time doing nothing (in my free time of course). Doing nothing actually kills me in the inside. I've been spending 90 percent of my time in front of my laptop (facebooking of course) and that didn't bring me any good. Therefore, I decided to start seeding my reading habit starting TODAY (now that I have these books). This is kinda a big decision that I've taken considering that I need to really commit myself in, in, in, reading of course. 

Hopefully, by doing this, I'll improve my writing skills, my imagination (because I'm an extremely bad imaginer) and many other things. Thanks to Percy Jackson and Rick Riordan (the author) for making me realize the importance of reading.

P/S: I'm amazed with the stories of Greek's (or Roman or whatsoever) gods. I find it very interesting that they have all sort of gods. Maybe this is one ultimate factor that leads me to buying all those Percy Jackson books.

I love this movie because I've always been a fan of Greek mythology. My cat's name is Athena, a Greek goddess. I named my house mate's cat Kratos, a Greek character. I play God of War, loosely based on the myth. I play Age of Mythology, in which you can use the power of the gods. In short, I love this movie.
Pinjam buku kau nanti? Ahaha.
