Where would we be today without the art of storytelling and beautiful literature? Watching V For Vendetta again today made me remember how much power words truly have. I love books. There's a huge long list of things I plan on reading this year. Have you all made your lists?

Anyhow, here's what I've been reading:

Despite how short it is, I've been "currently reading" this book for two weeks now. Don't get me wrong, it's very enjoyable to read, I'm just not rushing through it. Part of me wishes it was more...adult and mature? I keep on wanting Harry Potter to pop up and go Expelliarmus! all up on some ancient Greek monsters. After I read this series (there's five books in this series) I plan on continuing with The Lost Hero, the first book in a side series that still takes place in Percy Jackson's world. I'll either read it before or after The Red Pyramid, another book by Rick Riordan. There are three things I love learning about most: Greek mythology, ancient Egypt, and the human mind. The Red Pyramid is like the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, only intertwined with Egyptian history. I'm so psyched to get my hands on a copy.

I told myself I wouldn't start any new books until finishing The Sea of Monsters, but alas, I couldn't stop myself from picking The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo up after staring at it on my shelf for a week. I'm incredibly curious to see what it's about. Hopefully it's good. The girl who sits next to me in choir is reading it also, but from what I've seen her bookmark has stayed within the first fifty pages.

  1. My little reader! Read the Percy Jackson series as soon as you can; I want you to start The Lost Hero! I love discussing books with you, especially in a series. We haven't been doing that lately, and it was really fun while reading the House of Night books and so forth.
