Books On My Christmas Wish List


I shared some of the 2019 releases I can't wait to read in a recent post, but thought I'd share with you some of the books I'd like to find in my Christmas stocking/under the tree this year.

Those of you that have followed my posts this year will know that I became a bit Percy Jackson obsessed in 2018. I read all 5 books in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians box set this year and loved them all. 

Obviously I need more. 

Books On My Christmas Wish List

The Heroes of Olympus Paperback Boxed Set is therefore a must. All five books in the Heroes of Olympus series -- in a paperback boxed set (I like to have paperback versions of series) -- From The Lost Hero to the long awaited Blood of Olympus.

Of course, I also need The Kane Chronicles Box Set. A collection fit for the (Egyptian) gods! All three paperback books in the blockbuster Kane Chronicles trilogy- The Red Pyramid, The Throne of Fire, and The Serpent's Shadow.

Then there's the trilogy Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard Paperback Boxed Set. You're sensing a theme here aren't you?

I'm not just all about Percy Jackson though. There's another box set on my wish list: The Harry Potter Paperback Box Set (Books 1-7). On the topic of Harry Potter, I wouldn't mind getting the complete box set of the films too.

Another paperback book I'd like is Still Me by Jojo Moyes. I have copies of both Me Before You and After You on my shelf waiting to be read and so need to finish the set.

Book Review: Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan


Book Review: Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan





Book Review: Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan

After a summer spent trying to prevent a catastrophic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson finds his seventh-grade school year unnervingly quiet. His biggest problem is dealing with his new friend, Tyson-a six-foot-three, mentally challenged homeless kid who follows Percy everywhere, making it hard for Percy to have any "normal" friends.



But things don't stay quiet for long. Percy soon discovers there is trouble at Camp Half-Blood: the magical borders which protect Half-Blood Hill have been poisoned by a mysterious enemy, and the only safe haven for demigods is on the verge of being overrun by mythological monsters. To save the camp, Percy needs the help of his best friend, Grover, who has been taken prisoner by the Cyclops Polyphemus on an island somewhere in the Sea of Monsters, the dangerous waters Greek heroes have sailed for millennia-only today, the Sea of Monsters goes by a new name?the Bermuda Triangle.


Now Percy and his friends-Grover, Annabeth, and Tyson-must retrieve the Golden Fleece from the Island of the Cyclopes by the end of the summer or Camp Half-Blood will be destroyed. But first, Percy will learn a stunning new secret about his family-one that makes him question whether being claimed as Poseidon's son is an honor or simply a cruel joke.

Book Review: Fade to Black by David Rosenfelt

Book Review: Fade to Black by David Rosenfelt
In Fade to Black, the thrilling sequel to Blackout from David Rosenfelt, policeman Doug Brock helps a fellow victim of amnesia untangle a murder case and discovers he may not be as distant as he thinks.

After getting shot in the line of duty, New Jersey state police officer Doug Brock has been busy rebuilding his life. He’s reunited with his fiancĂ© and started to get some of his memories back. He hopes he can continue to recover with the help of an amnesia support group and that the damage from his past isn’t permanent.

It isn’t until fellow group member Sean Conner approaches him after a meeting that Doug realizes the trouble is just beginning. Sean has discovered in his attic what can only be called a scrapbook of a murder victim, but he has no recollection of the girl’s identity or why he might have gathered this information. Doug agrees to help and convinces his captain to open what had been a cold case. When he discovers that he had a personal connection to this case, suddenly he’s questioning everything he thought he knew about the case, about Sean, and about his own past.

In the next page-turning thriller by David Rosenfelt, Doug Brock is back to delight readers and keep them guessing until the end.
