If You Like The Lightning Thief series ...

This semester, my students are sharing book reviews in a different format, linking one book they thought many people in the class might have read and another that would appeal to a reader of the first book. (Please note that my third graders read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for third graders.)

This "If you like ... read this next ..." format was inspired by the We Need Diverse Books summer reading series. They used the format to encourage people to find and read diverse books, so all of their "read this next" choices highlight great, diverse book choices. You can find their posts here on their Tumblr page.

If You Like The Lightning Thief ...

By: Olivia

If you enjoy Percy Jackson ... then you'll enjoy the sequel series, the Heroes of Olympus.

The two book series have a lot in common, like they are both based on the Greek gods and Roman gods. They both have a little bit of violence and a little bit of sadness and a good amount of powerful words. They are both very mysterious adventure books, and they are amazing books and have a very good settings.

I hope that you enjoy reading this adventure with mystical creatures and ... read to find out more ...

If You Like The Lightning Thief ...

If you like The Lightning Thief series by Rick Riordan, then you should read The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick.

These books are adventurous, and exciting!

I recommend these books to readers who like mysteries and fantasy.
