Mythological Mondays (8)


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.  

The Heroes of Olympus, Book One: The Lost HeroIt 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!



Heroes of Olympus, The, Book Two: The Son of NeptuneIn 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!

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…

Book Blitz: Visions by Lisa Amowitz

Vision by Lisa Amowitz Release Date: 09/09/14 Spencer Hill Press
Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.
