The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan

My rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Summary: If Jason Grace was sent to Camp Half-Blood, where was Percy Jackson sent?  The Son of Neptune follows Percy's journey at Camp Jupiter, where he meets two new friends, Hazel and Frank.  The three then go on a quest that will bring the Greek and Roman demigods together and give us hints on the Prophecy of Seven. 

What I Like:  It's the second book in the Heroes of Olympus series!  I loved The Lost Hero and I also loved this one!  I enjoyed all the moments where Percy was slowly regaining his memory, where Hazel would have flashbacks, and when Frank's grandmother would explain what's in store for him.  I literally couldn't put the book down!  It was also nice to see how it is in the Roman camp for demigods.  Oh!  I also loved Leo's teensy part towards the end.  You can't handle Leo Valdez's swag.

What I don't Like:  I truly missed all the Percy/Annabeth moments.  I also miss the original trio: Percy, Annabeth, and Grover.  I especially don't like the fact that I have to wait a whole year for The Mark of Athena.  Huhuhu. *cries*

My comments:  The book was such a cliffhanger!  October 2012, please come faster!  Oh, and people have been asking me which side I'm on.  Greek or Roman?  Greek all the way, people!  You're talking to a daughter of Poseidon here.  Haha, just kidding!

Nico di Angelo

Nico di Angelo is one of my favorite characters in the Percy Jackson series.  There is just a mysterious feel about him, so here's a quick sketch of the son of Hades!

Oh how I love Photography!

I only remembered to upload these now.  Took these last month in Greenbelt 5.  Oh how I love photography! 


You guys have probably noticed that I've changed my blog url!  'arielleguevara' sounded too mainstream to me.  I wanted a funky and more creative url!  Behold, my blog is now called: Spaceship to Infinity!

Where did "Spaceship to Infinity" come from?  I really don't know.  It was just a random thought that popped into my head!  Wouldn't it be amazing if you could just hop into a spaceship and travel to the end of the world? (aka infinity!)

I'd love it if you guys would comment your thoughts on my new blog name!  Thanks a bunch!
