Welcome To My Blog

Welcome to my blog! I invite you to enter into the splendiferous world of the library where I will share my knowledge and love of books I have read, as well as send out praise to the authors of these treasures. Most of the books reviewed on my site will be Teen or YA Sci-Fi/Fantasy, though every now and then I'll throw in an adult book just to shake things up.

Waiting on Wednesday

So I thought long and hard this week about my Waiting on Wednesday post.  What book am I absolutely, 100% thinking about non-stop right now.  Well, until yesterday, it was Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare and The Haunted by Jessica Verday.  But as both came out yesterday and I ran out first thing yesterday morning to get them, that left me in a quandry.  So I sat back down to put some more thought into it and came up with one that is really starting to creep into the back of my mind a lot......

The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan, the first and HIGHLY ANTICIPATED 1st book in the new Heroes of Olympus series.  I have LOVED the Percy Jackson series and ADORED the new Kane Chronicles series, so with the upcoming release date (October 12th!!!), I figured now was a good time to allow myself to start obsessing.

From Goodreads: Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently she’s his girlfriend Piper, his best friend is a kid named Leo, and they’re all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for “bad kids.” What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea—except that everything seems very wrong.

Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, and her vivid nightmares reveal that he’s in terrible danger. Now her boyfriend doesn’t recognize her, and when a freak storm and strange creatures attack during a school field trip, she, Jason, and Leo are whisked away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood. What is going on?
Leo has a way with tools. His new cabin at Camp Half-Blood is filled with them. Seriously, the place beats Wilderness School hands down, with its weapons training, monsters, and fine-looking girls. What’s troubling is the curse everyone keeps talking about, and that a camper’s gone missing. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist they are all—including Leo—related to a god.


  1. Me too! I loved all of his other books and can not wait for this one to be released. I even have it on my calendar on my phone to sound an alarm! I am glad someone else is waiting on it!

  2. Me too! lol I HATE that it's going to be almost a year before the Kane Chronicles!!!
