Connor and I recently (the night before last) finished reading The Lightning Thief written by Rick Riordan. Until the movie came out, we hadn't even heard of the series much less the first book. My friend, Cheri, picked it up and started reading it and seemed to really enjoy it. So we decided to check it out too. We were hooked only after a few pages. It was hard to put it down. Connor caught me starting to read it silently once and let me know right away that I couldn't read it without him. On Tuesday night I let him stay up way later than normal so that we could finish it. We plan on getting the next book in the series, The Sea of Monsters, this weekend. Connor can hardly wait.
I finally got Nicholas Spark's lastest book, The Last Song. I'm hoping to finish it before we pick up The Sea of Monsters. We'll see what happens.
