The theme of this week for the Literary Addicts is Stalker Day! Pick your favorite author that you love to stalk and just can’t get enough of!
Join our group HERE to find out next week’s theme!
Since having kids it has been harder and harder for me to really be the kind of reader I used to be. I would devour books. Chew them up slowly and savour them and then read them again with huge bites! Now I read a little bit and put the book down. Read a little bit and put the book down. Rinse, repeat until the book is done. It doesn’t have the same joy.
One of my favorite authors that I will read anything he write is Rick Riordan. I know his books are more geared towards the younger generation but I still love them.
I started with The Lightning Thief which is book one of the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. At that point books two and three were out so I got them as well. Then I had to wait a little over a month for book four which wasnt bad. It wasnt until I finished book four that I realized that it meant I had to wait half a year for the last book to come out!!! I was so upset. I managed it though and book five, The Last Olympian, is one of the best I have ever read. I cry every single time I reread it.
Lucky for me that Rick Riordan continued his series with the Heroes of Olympus which focus on both new and old characters based in the same world as Percy Jackson. He also has a great Egyptian god and goddesses series, The Kane Chronicles. I love it as well but not as much as Percy Jackson.
