Knights of Literary Reads

By Carter S.

About Me

I do not read very much. I learned to read in elementary school. My purpose for reading is mostly for school. But sometimes if I find a good book, I will read at home. The Blood of Olympus was a book that I enjoyed.


My Goals

My goal is to be a better reading, and read more fluent. And also to start reading more than I usually do.

My Favorites

I like to read books like the Percy Jackson series. I also like to read sports books, and magazines. Some of my favorite books are the Percy Jackson series, and the Hunger Games. My favorite magazine is the Lacrosse magazine.

Blog Entry

Right now I am reading Where the Red Fern grows. The last book I read was the Blood of Olympus. It is another series that switches between characters point of view, including some of the Percy Jackson characters. I enjoyed this book.
