Goddess bootcamp definitely wasn't as good as the first book in this series, Oh. My. Gods. However, I did enjoy learning more about Phoebe, Stella, Griffin, and even Adara.

My favorite part in this book was definitely the scenes with Phoebe and Stella. We see how both of them actually care for one another. And we find out how Stella has her own crush she's pining for!

Daemon and Phoebe's mom were there, always supportive of Phoebe's uncontrollable powers.

I found the whole theme, controlling your

Phoebe may be a descendant of Nike, but she has a lot to learn when it comes to mastering her powers. It’s not exactly a good thing to turn your living room into a beach and your parents’ bedroom into a winter wonderland. All the silly situations that Phoebe got herself into were hilarious.

Speaking of powers, I loved learning more about all the powers that the classmates had. Autoportation lets you to “move oneself to a different location through nonphysical means.” Imagine the possibiliti
So I decided to read this book because I read the first one, and I couldn't read the first one and not read the second one. I found that this book was more for a pre-teen because I found this kind of childish, but I did like it because of the mystical, magical, power, part of it. It's basically just the second part to the first book, "Oh.My.Gods" and it's about how Phoebe learns how to control her powers since she's the descendant of Nike, and I like it because it shows her thinking process from ...more
Now that Phoebe knows that the goddess Nike is her great-grandmother, she has to figure out how to cope and control her super powers as being so close in ancestry to a goddess makes her stronger than most of the classmates that mocked her in the last series for being merely human. The joke's on them as hijinks ensue whenever Phoebe loses control of her powers (often) but then Phoebe is forced to attend Goddess Boot Camp with kids nearly half her age and counselors who are fellow classmates. Why ...more
Phoebe, who recently discovered she's a descendant of Nike (the goddess, not the shoe), is finding that supernatural powers come with a crazy learning curve. Her stepfather, headmaster of the Academy for descendants of the Greek gods, has enrolled her at Dynamotheos Development Camp—aka Goddess Boot Camp—with a bunch of ten-year-olds for the summer. Embarrassing as that is, hopefully it'll help her gain control over her powers in time to pass the test of the gods, continue training hard enough t ...more
After Phoebe finds out that she is a descendant of Nike (the goddess not the shoe) she has to learn to control her crazy powers. Right before her Mom and her new step dad leave for their honeymoon she finds out she is going to have a test on her powers. While in the midst of controlling her out of control powers she has to train for Pyathian Games. So she is stuck in a house with her dreadful step sister who might just be the trick to getting her powers under control. While she has all her frien ...more
Wish there were more of these cute books.

I am kinda sad there isn't a third book in this series. This series is cute. Really cute. Granted if you are looking for the Odyssey this isn't it, but if you are looking for a light & fluffy read this is the books for you.

The combination of trust, love, and the truth give an intense plot. The way Pheobe has to find the mystery person sending her the hints on her father's death and spying on her boyfriend to see if she should be worried gives the sense of mystery and betrayal. It's hard enough to deal with her trying to control her powers while trusting her evil stepsister Stella and rival Adara to help her, but she also needs to learn how to trust her boyfriend Griffin that he won't hurt her. And on top of it, fi ...more
A great sequel to Oh. My. Gods.! The author infuses such great humor into this series that I laughed out loud again and again. The novel also provides great storylines about family, relationships, and being true to yourself and following your dreams. Sad to see Phoebe's story end but I thoroughly enjoyed the ride! Can't wait to read Tera Lynn Childs' Forgive My Fins now!

Was surprised about the test. Once again I felt the great need to exercise while reading this book, something that's very difficult for any author to accomplish. Any book that makes me want to get in shape and learn Greek so I can meet handsome Greek demi-gods is pretty special.
Honestly, this book is mainly about the choice between cheating and winning. Phoebe loves running. As the great granddaughter of the Greek goddess of Nike (victory), the desire to win is literally in her genes. But since she has learned her father was killed by the Greek gods for using his powers to increase his football career, she has become afraid that one day, she too will choose winning over the rules. But with the help of friends and family, she learns that she would always choose family o ...more
Great book love it read it

After discovering the news that she wasn't a normal and that she was in fact descended from a Greek God life has been a challenging time , even worst is that her powers are out of control and her line of descendant is closer than most of the students at the school. She has discovered that she is in fact the Goddess Nike's Great-granddaughter which explains why she is good at cross -country . Yes the Nike brand was named after the Goddess of Victory . However trouble looms ahead in two situations ...more
In this sequel to Oh My Gods, the gods have become concerned over Phoebe’s lack of control over her powers and decide she must attend goddess boot camp and then pass a test or else. To add to the stress it turns out two of her counselors are her step-sister Stella and her boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend. To top it all off Phoebe begins to suspect her boyfriend, Griffin, may be rekindling something with his ex-girlfriend.

Oh My Gods tied up so nicely that I was not sure what to expect from this sequel b
I didn't like it at first because I had just finished reading the Percy Jackson series and these books/series have two completely different story lines. "Oh. My. Gods." doesn't have action and adventure like Percy Jackson but it has teen high school experiences as all of the characters are descendants of Greek gods and go to a special academy for in Greece. They have all have special powers and the main character who moves to Greece after her mom re-marries soon finds out her true heritage in th ...more

Fun sequel to Oh.My.Gods, a YA chick lit, contemporary fantasy

In the further adventures of eighteen-year-old Phoebe Castro, close descendant of the Greek goddess Nike, Phoebe is struggling to control her recently discovered, very strong, and randomly triggered powers. If she doesn't get them under control soon, she is terrified the Olympian gods will smite her as they did her father. To help her pass an upcoming trial by the gods in only a few weeks, her stepfather sends Phoebe to Goddess Boot C

After reading Oh.My.Gods I quickly started reading Goddess Boot Camp. It is the second book in the series and is written by one of my favorite authors for young adult books. I loved the first book in the series! The second book though just wasn't as great as the first.

I still loved this book, so don't get me wrong. I just felt it needed just a little bit more to it. I loved the witty dialogue that the author never fails to bring to the story. I loved each of the characters in the story as well.
Loved, loved, LOVED this book. I have this thing for mythology and romance and Goddess Boot Camp had both!

I honestly loved everything about this novel. The characters, the plot, the ending and even the writing style.

Phoebe has trouble controlling her power so her stepfather, Damien, decides to enroll her in Goddess Boot Camp that will allow her to control her powers better and it's also a preparation for the test that the gods and goddesses are going to give her. She must pass or face the conseq
While Oh. My. Gods. concentrated on Phoebe's history, and her attempt to fit in, G.B.C spent a lot more time on her attempt to control her powers. Pheobe has recently discovered that she's a descendant of Nike, and she has very limited control over the gifts she's been given. She ends up at Goddess Boot Camp, a place where she can learn to control her powers. Unfortunately, her fellow camp mates are giggling 10-year-old girls. To make matters worse, her "counselors" include her evil-ish stepsist ...more

Beach Read #3 - I loved Oh. My. Gods. so much when I read it recently, so I was pumped to see that the sequel had come out in paper back. It was great. Both of these books are quick, fast, and enjoyable reads. I raced through them and had so much fun.

Phoebe just found out in the last book that she is a descendant of Nike and has actual powers. The problem - she can't control them. Most kids at her special school for descendants of the gods learn about their powers and how to control them at a ve

The second book in the series. Although it was great to read about Phoebe again, I found the story a little less captivating this time. The things Phoebe did, unconsciously, with her powers were hilarious (like teleport her stepfather in the middle of the ocean when she thinks of a surfing boy ). Also the fact she has to spend two weeks with little girls is hilarious, but that was the good part.

Not that the rest was hard to read or bad, I just found

Recommends it for: Fans of Percy Jackson and/or Greek mythology in general.
Shelves: teen-fiction
Fans of Camp Half-blood should also enjoy "Goddess Boot Camp." Like the "Percy Jackson & the Olympians" series, this one stars a seemingly average adolescent who discovers she possesses divine blood and proceeds to develop her newfound powers at a secret haven for similarly blessed teens. There, much like Percy at Camp Half-blood, protagonist Phoebe enters a world where varying divine bloodlines and the abilities that accompany them play just as much of a role in determining social standing ...more
In Oh.My.Gods., Phoebe Castro was forced to pick up her life on the West Coast of the U.S. and move to a small, secluded island in Greece with her mother. She grudgingly gained a stepdad, an evil stepsister, and the knowledge that the Greek gods were not a myth. Phoebe was dismayed to earn the privilege of attending school with the powerful, teenage descendants of the gods and being cast as the inferior outsider. There were inklings about her, however, and she eventually learned she was not infe ...more
Buku lanjutan dari Oh.My.Gods.

Setelah cukup berhasil beradaptasi dengan sekolahnya yang khusus bagi para keturunan dewa-dewi Yunani *bahkan dengan bonus berhasil pacaran dengan Griffin,si cowok idola*, cobaan bagi Pheobe ternyata belum berakhir. Pihak sekolah memutuskan bahwa Pheobe masih harus ikut summer camp untuk mengendalikan kekuatannya. Problem #1: semua peserta summer camp itu usianya tidak lebih dari 10 tahun. Problem #2: konselor untuk summer cump tersebut adalah Stella, si saudara tir
Goddess Boot Camp is the hugely fun sequel to Oh.My.Gods.. I really enjoyed reading this.

Phoebe’s life gets a little more complicated in Goddess Boot Camp as she has some pretty serious things to deal with. She was desperate to learn more about her dad’s death, busy training for the Pythian Games - more important then the Olympics - and prepare for a test that will have dire consequences if she fails. And yet Goddess Boot Camp had me giggling throughout.

I really didn’t like Stella - Phoebe’s ste

Memang keputusan tepat utk baca buku ini setelah kelar baca The Replacement yg topiknya rada gelap, murung n suram.

Gaya bahasanya enak, alur cerita cepat, gampang dimengerti, ga bertele-tele, jadinya cepat kelar jg bacanya.
Tokoh favoritku dlm buku kedua ini adalah Stella. Aku suka saat dia tetap bersikap tenang biarpun selalu diusili Pheobe. Suka salah kaprah dgn "Phoebe" (-_-').

Yg bikin aku kurang suka adalah kemampuan berimajinasi secara gila-gilaan dari Pheobe ini, yg notabene bikin aku te
I liked Goddess Boot Camp a lot more than Oh My Gods, the first book in this series. In this one, the characters become more fully developed, situations are a lot less ridiculous, and it seems to flow smoother overall.

Now aware that she's a descendant of the goddess Nike, Phoebe is spending her summer at a boot camp for the descendants of the Greek gods who are just leaning to control their new powers. Of course, since she found out later than usual about her heritage, all the other campers are

I finished reading Goddess Boot Camp. "Adara is my friend. Until you helped me work through things with Nicole last year, she was my oldest friend. That's never going to change. Neither is the fact that you're my girlfriend." Griffen says. That quote is means that you can have different kinds of friends. This quote made me want to read more.

Phoebe is the main character. She has a unique personality. Phoebe looks seems like a girl who wears black boot, camouflage skirt, a pink shirt and bright pi
Alright, another book by Tera Lynn Childs and I'm hoping many more to go! I loved Goddess Boot Camp just as much as Oh. My. Gods. and if you love the Percy Jackson series then you will love this series too! Straight up before I get into this review, it will be a babbler like the other one, just because that's how excited I am. But on with it.

I'm going to skip over doing a character summary since I did that in my Oh. My. Gods. review.

In Goddess Boot Camp Phoebe and her friends are back, several m
