Book Review: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan


Title: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan (The Trials of Apollo #1)

Author: Rick Riordan

Publication (of my edition) : May 2016, Puffin Books (Penguin Random House). 

Purchase details: 
Purchased at Book Gallery, New Market, Dhaka. If you're located in Dhaka, PLEASE do try and visit this store. It's always good to support local booksellers and this one in particular has a pretty good collection. The uncle also offers to order in books if they aren't available in store. 

Blurb:

How do you punish an immortal? By making him human. After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disoriented, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus's favor. But Apollo has many enemies—gods, monsters, and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go... an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.

It's Monday! What are you reading?

badge

It's Monday! What are YOU Reading? is a meme hosted by Kathryn at the Book Date. In my opinion, the meme is a great way to share what you have been, are, and about to be reading over the week. In other words, basically yet another way for book nerds to gush over read/unread books.
