Sit Tight, Little Chickies

I haven't forgotten about y'all. Here are the books that I've read (and loved) and will be reviewing in the near future:
  1. His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novik; Genre Fiction, Fantasy; Tear-inducing and novel
  2. The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend by Kody Keplinger; YA Fiction; Tear-inducing and captivating characters
  3. Mostly Good Girls by Leila Sales; YA Fiction; HILARIOUS
  4. Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John; YA Fiction; Tear-inducing and captivating characters
  5. The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan; YA Genre Fiction, Fantasy; Action-packed continuation of the Percy Jackson series with some great new characters
  6. Freedom by Daniel Suarez; Genre Fiction, Thriller; Action-packed continuation of Daemon with a return to (and amping up of) the characters we loved
Does anyone notice any themes on why I'm loving these books? (Yeah, I was on a bit of a crying jag, so I had to mix it up with familiar favorites that were super-well-paced thrillers with good characters and interesting themes.)

My husband really likes the Rick Riodan books. Although he isn't too hot in this new Jason character... is that his name? Anyway, he thinks Percy Jackson could kick his butt. Or something like that?

You're kidding me, right? Percy kick Jason's butt? Not a chance. Jason's a Roman demigod. He was raised by WOLVES. Hard core, that one. (I'm expecting a good throw down in the next installment though.)

By the way, you're the media specialist... shouldn't you be the one with opinions on the MG novels? :)

How's the pregnancy going? Swimmingly?

Just wondering, who bathed in the River Styx?

(my hubby wanted me to say that)

Baby is doing great!!! :)

I believe that Jason's memory loss may prevent us from knowing that he, too, was bathed in the River Styx... as that appears in Roman mythology as well. (Although I'm not assuming so, since the original Jason wasn't.)

Good to hear about baby! When are you due?

I'm off work today because the University closed the campus due to the winter weather. (Something good DOES come out of this.)
