Waiting on Wednesday

So.. there's no cover, BUT after meeting Rick Riordan last night, he announced that the first book in a series that off-shoots his ever-popular Percy Jackson series, will be released in OCTOBER!!!!!

No, I kid you not. Heck, Goodreads has it already - although the cover has not been revealed yet.

The Lost Hero
(The Heroes of Olympus, #1)
by Rick Riordan
Release Date: October 12, 2010

It was hard to say good-bye to Percy--but fans don't have to! A lovable new generation of demigods have their own prophecy to prepare for, and their hero Perseus Jackson just may turn up in times of need.

Okay, I know.. Percy Jackson is Middle Grade Fiction - but it is AWESOME. I don't joke. If you haven't read this series, you need to. Especially if you love mythology.

I cannot WAIT!!!!!!!!!


  1. Aubrey was sooo stoked about this - when you said something on Twitter last night I HAD to wake her up to let her know! She's I think I need to read this series asap! :)

  2. How cool is this. Great announcement. I am sure all of Riordan's fans will be overjoyed.

  3. I am in my early twenties, and I love Percy Jackson. Rick Riordan published the first book in his Kane Chronicles series, The Red Pyramid, about the Egyptian gods and goddesses early this month.

  4. I am *cough* 38 and love the Percy Jackson books! I think you are never to old to enjoy a good story :)

    Great to hear that he announced his next series!

  5. I haven't read the Percy Jackson but I have loved MG novels. Intelligent children books ROCK.

  6. Yay! I love the Percy Jackson books!

  7. I'm 31 and just finished the Percy Jackson series. I loved it - it was great to read something that was just so much fun! Am currently reading The Red Pyramid which is shaping up to be just as good. Glad to hear that there are going to be more Camp Half-Blood coming up!

  8. EEEE!!! I'm so excited! I absolutely ADORED the Percy Jackson series! I'm looking forward to reading The Red Pyramid too! Thanks for sharing!

  9. I just started reading Percy Jackson, but my daughter loved them. She's was thrilled when I told her about the new series.

  10. Woo hoo! I can't wait! I saw this one too up on Goodreads - glad to hear Rick confirmed it for October although I really don't want to wait that long :)

  11. Woohoo!! I still need to read the rest of the Percy Jackson books first, though. :D


Leave some love!
