Yay!!! It's Here...

We finally got The Son of Neptune today, and my daughter is very excited.  She was reading it before we ever made it to the check out.  It made me so happy to see her jump up and down with joy at the mere sight of the book.  She's been waiting patiently for so long.  I hope it's all she wants it to be, but I know it will be.  It's about her favorite literary character, Percy Jackson.  She gets to visit with an old friend.

Isn't reading awesome?

Goodreads summary
In the first pages of this standalone sequel to The Lost Hero, Percy Jackson remembers only his name and the name of Annabeth, a mysterious woman he associates somehow with the city of San Francisco. From those sparse clues, he must somehow complete a mission for the leader of the Roman camp even as he is being pursued by the two sisters of Medusa, who possess an apparently unquenchable thirst for vengeance: Even when killed, they spring back to life. Rick Riordan's second Heroes of Olympus promises even more excitement than the first.


  1. Yeeaah, I'm definitely going to have to read this one. I had so much fun with this series! How cool that your daughter is so excited!

  2. Hi Erin! I really like this series too! I think Percy is a great character. Thanks for commenting!

  3. This post made me smile! I remember what it was like when I got a new book as a kid. Books were such a great present because every page was a mystery to be explored and so the "present-feeling" lasted for a long time. Come to think of it, I still feel that way about books!

  4. Aww! I love this post! I love reading about how enthusiastic your daughter is about reading. So many people have mentioned this series...looks like it is time for me to pick it up!

    I hope you are feeling all better now! I've missed your posts!

  5. I hope everything is okay! I haven't seen you around in a while. Take care,
