I’ve been noticing a lot of searches happening on my site for Rick Riordan and updates on what he’s doing. The easiest way to get this info would be to look on his website : http://www.rickriordan.com/home.aspx
But, since I’m a huge fan I’ll write about him anyway. He has a ton of new books out this year and a movie next year! (Helllloooo, Nathan Fillion as Hermes in The Sea of Monsters. Love it.)
So Mr. Riordan actually has a new book out today! The Serpent’s Shadow is another in his Kane Chronicles and I’m happily going to pick it up at the bookstore!
Next up is a part of his Heroes series: The Demigod Diaries is out August 14th, 2012. It’s short stories, but I’ll be happy to read it nonetheless.
After that, this champion of writing, has The Mark of Athena coming out this fall of 2012. And I’m so stoked for it you have no idea.
And finally, after scouring his website I just discovered that the man has a bunch of books out for adults dating back to the 90’s. Heeellllllloooooo summer reading! Should make for a good time.
In other book news another of my favourite authors has a book out today: Charlaine Harris. Yes, you read me correctly, even after the icky-icks of her last series I will continue on with her Sookie Stackhouse books. Deadlocked is out today!!! Whoot whoot!
(Did I also mention that Kelley Armstrongs book ‘The Calling’ just came out as well? I’m four books away on my reading list and can’t wait…)
Those four books are the Game of Thrones series…so I won’t be seeing that one for weeks. And she has yet another book out this summer (July) called ‘Thirteen’. Very exciting stuff this year! At least for me…haha, all my favourite authors are coming out with new stuff. AH! I almost forgot, how embarrassing for me the biggest J.K. Rowling fan ever. Pottermore is open! AND she has a new coming for adults September 27th 2012 called The Casual Vacancy.
What’s on your summer reading list?
