When throngs of girls lined up outside of bookstores to be the 1st with the new Twilight books, I rolled my eyes. Seriously, girls...it's ok. You can wait a day to buy the next book. Oh, am I ever a hypocrite!
Recently, I became involved in 3 different book series...none of which have been completed yet! I am chomping at the bit to jump back into any of these worlds...
- Michael Scott's The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flammel. So far, we have The Alchemyst, The Magician, The Sorceress, and The Necromancer. Next up...The Warlock due in May, 2011 (arg!). Humani like I don't wait well!
- Rick Riordan's The Heroes of Olympus. Percy's Jackson's not top dog anymore! In fact, he's missing.... In The Lost Hero, a pick-up from the Percy Jackson series, we revisit Camp Half-Blood and learn about heroes born from Roman gods. Book 2 is due out Fall 2011.
- Rick Riordan's The Kane Chronicles is, of course, a modern venture into the world of ancient gods--Egyptian gods this time. The premise of The Red Pyramid is pretty standard for those familiar with Riordan's books--gods need help from humans to prevent the end of the world. However, you don't see me complaining about anything except that book 2 isn't due out until Spring 2011.
Moral of the story...don't start a new series until it's almost time for the next book to be out.
