Waiting On Wednesday #20 - Blood Of Olympus

Song Of The Moment - Final Masquerade by Linkin Park
Hosted by Breaking The Spine

18705209The Blood Of Olympus
by Rick Riordan
Pub. Date -Oct. 7th
Description(from Goodreads) -
Though the Greek and Roman crewmembers of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen—all of them—and they're stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood—the blood of Olympus—in order to wake.

The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood. The Roman legion from Camp Jupiter, led by Octavian, is almost within striking distance. Though it is tempting to take the Athena Parthenos to Athens to use as a secret weapon, the friends know that the huge statue belongs back on Long Island, where it "might" be able to stop a war between the two camps.

The Athena Parthenos will go west; the Argo II will go east. The gods, still suffering from multiple personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of young demigods hope to persevere against Gaea's army of powerful giants? As dangerous as it is to head to Athens, they have no other option. They have sacrificed too much already. And if Gaea wakes, it is game over.

Why I can't Wait - Basically Percy Jackson is my favorite thing ever. I have been obsessed with the books since I was twelve and my brother forced me to read Lightning Thief. If I had to pick a favorite book, a favorite book character, a favorite author, without a doubt it would be Percy Jackson and Rick Riordan and there is nothing I am more excited to for this year than this book.

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  11. Ahh! Blood of Olympus, yes! I can't even describe how excited I am for this book. Rick Riordan may be one of the best MG/YA authors out there (he's definitely in my top 10). And this last book is going to be epic, I just know it. Here's my WoW for the week: Between.

  15. I must admit that I haven't read anything by Rick Riordan either. (Don't worry, I am hanging my head in shame.) I know so many people are excited for this one, hope you love it when you get to read it!

  16. This is yet another series I need to read.....honestly, there are SO many great books, and amazing series, I just don't know when or how I will get to them all!! I haven't even gotten to The Mortal Instruments series yet!!! And yes, I do have most of the books. Now I want the latest one, of course, but the money's a bit tight right now.....

    So you have definitely picked a terrific book!! I'll add it to my TBR, where the rest of the Percy Jackson books are, and cross my fingers that I'll be able to start the series.....

    BTW, thank you so much for taking a look at my own WOW, and commenting!! : )

  17. This series sure is popular. Haven't read any of them yet, though.

    My WW :)

  18. I ADORE THIS SERIES. I'm so so so sad that it's going to be over!!! D: But yeah, this book is definitely one of my top 3 most-anticipated books this year. Love Percy Jackson. So much.

  19. I really need to read this series because it seems like everyone is talking about it. Great Pick this week!
