Just for fun, I just read Rick Riordan's "The Lost Hero." My son brought it home from his school library and finished it in one night, so I took it and did the same the next night. I really enjoyed his Olympians series with Percy Jackson, but my favorite book by Rick Riordan (so far) has been "The Red Pyramid" from his Kane Chronicles. The second book doesn't come out until next spring, unfortunately. There is just something about ancient Egypt that has the Greek (and Roman) gods beat, in my book!
Have any of you ever read his books for adults? I haven't, but may check one out at some point when I have some free time ;)
