Synopsis:

Here's Where It All Starts: the beginning of everything - the world, the gods, and even humanity. Might Kronos, the most terrifying of all the Titans, reigns as the unchallenged tyrant of the cosmos...until his son, the god Zeus, stands up and takes on his own father in a battle intense enough to shatter the universe! Who will emerge triumphant?

My rating: ★★★★☆

I LOVE Greek mythology, so the idea of Greek mythology graphic novels sounds amazing to me! It’s basically the myths in condensed form but with pictures! This series focuses on the main twelve gods AKA the Olympians. Hence the series name. Lol. I actually read a couple of the other graphic novels in this series, which is totally okay to read before this one because it doesn’t really tell a linear story, so they can be read as standalones.

Synopsis:

Jamie and Tom have been going out since junior high. They are planning to graduate from high school and attend college together. Everything's perfect until Tom breaks a date--and all the horror begins. What has happened to Tom? To Jamie's horror, the boy she loves is stalking her and making threats. Now, there's nowhere Jamie can hide.

My rating: ★★☆☆☆

Oh, this book... not one of R.L. Stine’s best, I’m afraid.

head shake

This is gonna be hard review to do because pretty much everything I have to say is spoiler-y, so here we go. Lol.

Basically, Jamie is at the mall one day with her best friend, when she witnesses a robbery and murder. She freaks out because she thinks the guy might have been her boyfriend Tom. But this idiot wasn’t wearing her glasses, but she’s pretty sure it was him.
