Synopsis
HONESTLY, BLOWING UP ANOTHER SCHOOL WAS THE LAST THING I WANTED TO DO.
As the son of a Greek god, I've had my share of near-death disaster - and now my arch enemy Luke wants to invade our camp via an ancient Labyrinth.
If he succeeds, thousands of bloodthirsty monsters will attack. So it's goodbye sunshine, hello darkness as four of us descend into the terrifying underground and beyond...
My review
I was really excited to get to this one as the story of Daedalus and Icarus is one of my favourite Greek myths. Thus book did not disappoint at all and I honestly think it is my favourite of all 5.
The introduction of Rachel really added another element to the story and showed both Percy and Annabeth's growth as characters, having to face a challenge so different from their normal quests, and…

The One by Kiera Cass Publisher/Year: June 5th 2014 HarperCollins Source/Format: e-arc | NetGalley (Thanks NetGalley/HarperCollins!) Rating: 3/5
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affects my opinion.
I have finally gotten round to finishing this trilogy (which is what I consider it to be because I will not be reading on). As much as I have many complaints about this series, and I understand why people dislike t so much, they're not the worst. There is a time and place for this level of drama in a book, and it is enjoyable and comforting to be able to breeze through books like these. Although, I have to say that the covers are still my favourite part about these books.

Synopsis
One night. A life-changing decision. And a list...
Of course Clare made a list. She creates lists for everything. That's just how she is.
But tonight is Clare and Aidan's last night before college and this list will decide their future, together or apart.
It takes them on a rollercoaster ride through their past - from the first hello in science class to the first conversation at a pizza joint, their first kiss at the beach and their first dance in a darkened gymnasium - all the way up to tonight.
A night of laughs, fresh hurts, last-minute kisses and an inevitable goodbye.
But will it be goodbye forever or goodbye for now?
