I finally finished 'The Son of Neptune'! It took me so much longer than I thought it would. And I wasn't busy or anything, I just had the hardest time picking the book back up once I put it down, but putting it down was just as hard. This book was a great read. So funny!! The jokes worked well on two levels. One level was the blatant in your face joke and the second tied into the first but hit you later making you remember the scene it came from to laugh all over. There were so many good parts that I can't choose just one to tell you about.....so I won't! I'll just tell you to go read it for yourself ^_^!!
Rick Riordan's next book, "The Mark of Athena" does not come out until the fall, so I have a while to wait yet ^^; I am unsure if I will read 'The Demigod Diaries', which comes out in August. It is just a collection of short stories and art, but doesn't actually integrate with the 'Heros of Olympes' story line....
On the other hand, I am now starting my third book. I bought quite a few the other day and it was a toss up between another romance or an action adventure...so in the end I went with a Fairytale with a twist ^_^
My newest book to read is called......
'Cinder' By Marissa Meyer, is a wonderful futuristic twist on an old classic. It is set in New Beijing at some point in the future and as you can see from the picture above, Cinder is a cyborg.
" Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . .
Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future." --- Marissa Meyer.
Doesn't that sound good?
If you are like me and like new twists for old favorites, give this book a try. You won't be sorry~
Please note, that so far I am only at the fifth chapter, so my opinion my change, but I love it so far. That has to stand for something ^_^
