Want It Wednesday Extra

The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan
Release Date: 5/5/09
Here you go Percy fans! It's the cover of the fifth and final (sniff) Percy Jackson book due out in May. I love this series and have given it to so many tweens and teens since The Lightning Thief first came out. It's one of my favorite go-to books when someone asks what book to read. We'll even be hosting a Camp Halfblood party in late April at my library. I'll be sad to see this series end, but hopefully we'll get to hear more from Percy and Camp Halfblood!
Be sure to check out Rick Riordan's blog for a fun interview about the cover!


  1. I haven't read this series but it would fit a few of my challenges. I will add it to my list for sure

  2. I haven't read this series either (looks kind of like a guy thing, LOL) but I have the first one on my shelf...

  3. Yeah, it is a guy read-it's one that I can pretty always sell to tween guys that come into the library, if they haven't read it already. It's very Harry
    Potter-ish with the camp and mythology and quests, but it's a fun series and it refreshs all that Greek Mythology stuff I remember learning way back when!:)


  4. Hm, never heard of these books - but Greek mythology is always a plus! I'll check it out as long as it's not a "guy read" like Boy Minus Girl - now that is a little bit too much boy perspective for me :D

  5. They're not too much of a "guy read"-if you liked Harry Potter, you'd probably like this series too.


  6. That's really nice cover. :) I haven't read this series yet.

  7. Eeek!!!! I can't wait for the last book! The Percy Jackson series is at the top of my fairly short list of favorite books, so I have been anticipating this one for nearly a year. It is sort of sad that it's the last one, though...

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
