N5B: Percy Jackson

Fri, 07/31/2015 - 12:55pm -- jblock

I know many kids in Easton are fans of the Percy Jackson books, and I absolutely agree! I love Percy Jackson so much that I made my mom read them--and you know what? She loves them too! Percy Jackson transcends the normal juvenile fiction demographics and there are so many books in the series that they can keep you busy for a long time. Did you know that Rick Riordan is coming out with a new book in the fall? I heard that it is about Norse mythology and the home base is our very own Boston, Massachusetts! So if you have read all of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians books, all of the Heroes of Olympus books, and all of the Kane Chronicles books, I have a treat for you: your Next 5 Books!
