Mythological Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by Bonnie at A Backwards Story. Mythological Mondays bring attention to all things myth related.
For my role in MM this week, I originally wrote up a post about one of my recent reads (Fury by Elizabeth Miles). But then I stumbled on something amazing while on Goodreads. Therefore, Fury will have to wait. You can still check out my review, though.
It is no surprise that I am a HUGE fan of Rick Riordan. I loved the Percy Jackson books. I've found that a lot of people were fans of Percy (like Team Edward and Harry Pottery), but I"m a fan of the books (not just the characters). I am so disappointed when I hear people say that they don't like Riordan's new series, Heroes of Olympus, because Percy isn't in them. Personally, I can't see how you dislike a book that blends Greek and Roman mythology. It's pure genius!
In my effort to share the awesomeness and participate in MM, I wanted to share the FIRST CHAPTER of the newest book in the Heroes of Olympus series, The Son of Neptune. To read the chapter, go here. I can't express how much I am anticipating this book. In case you're wondering, it hits the shelves in October!
