Waiting on Wednesday is an idea inspired by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
May 1 is shaping up to be one of the better days in book publication history. In addition get the release of BITTERBLUE, May 1 2012 is also the day we get the sequel to SHIPBREAKER, and the the subject of today’s post, Rick Riordan’s THE SERPENT’S SHADOW.
So far I have really enjoyed The Kane Chronicles. They are quite different from the Percy Jackson books, but still full of great history, and jokes that make me laugh until I cry. I find The Kane Chronicles tend to be slightly more serious (not in a “the world is ending” kind of way, because the PJ books have plenty of that, but in a “our issues are serious, let us share them with you” kind of way. Or maybe I’m just a sucker for the family dynamic), but no less fun.
I’m excited to see what Sadie and Carter get up to this time around (though from title I have some guesses!), and I can’t wait to get back into Egyptian magical hijinks.
May 1 really can’t come soon enough!
