house of hades

The House of Hades (The Heroes of Olympus #4) by Rick Riordan
I am loving this series.  Rick Riordan is such a fun writer.  I’ve got the audiobook of this one.  I’m going to start listening to it today.

From Publisher:

heros guide outlaw

The Hero’s Guide to Being an Outlaw (The League of Princes #3) by Christopher Healy
Thank You Walden Pond Press!  I just love this amazing middle grade series.  This is the final installment, which released at the end of April.  I cannot wait for read this.


Life Tidbits

  • I grabbed lunch with my cousin on Friday, and it was so nice to sit and chat.  I hadn’t seen her in ages.  We talked books!
  • The ignition of my car actually froze, and I wasn’t able to get my car started earlier this week.  I had to borrow my grandmother’s car.  It’s weird, because it isn’t nearly as cold as it was earlier in the year.  My dad fixed it, though.  Yay for awesome dads!
  • My Filofax came Friday, and it’s so pretty.
  • I have a four day weekend!  Friday-Monday I am free of work.  Woot!
  • I had a major hankering for Newsies this week, so I broke out my soundtrack.  Well, I started playing the playlist on my phone.  I feel like I need to see it again on Broadway.  Twice is not enough, right Fansies?
  • I haven’t read much at all this week.  I need to get back into the reading groove.  How’s your reading week going?

    AMAZING WEEK!! I haven’t read any of Rick Riordan books and that definitely has to change =P Would you recommend the audiobook over the written copy?

    Do you like your Filofax? I sort of want one, but I don’t know that I would have enough use for it to justify paying the money. Lol. I haven’t really been reading too much either. I was really into it again for a while and then the last few days… nothing. Oh well! I hope you’re having a good week. 😀

      I LOVE my filofax, but I can totally understand debating about spending so much money. I decided to invest, because I’ve gone the last five years or so without a planner, and I’ve just become more and more disorganized. I’m hoping my filofax will help me stay on track and get more organized.

      I really thought about how I would use it, before I bought one, to make sure I wouldn’t loose interest in it. But there are lots of other alternatives to the Filofax brand that will give you similar results, I think. I really like the Erin Condren planners. They’re still a little pricy, but not as much as a Filofax. But they’re so cute. Although they’re not binders, so you can’t rearrange things.

  7. Enjoy your long weekend! I haven’t read the books you got, but I’m curious. Thanks for sharing, and here’s

  8. Enjoy the books you picked up this week. I hope to be able to read more this week to. 🙂

  9. I’m just getting ready to start the Heroes of Olympus books. I love Rick Riordan too. I still need to read the second League of Princes book, but I loved the first one. Thanks for sharing and happy reading!

  10. Great haul. I hope you enjoy all of your books 🙂 I’ve not managed to read too much this week either, probably because I’ve been working a lot. My STS.

    Ah, the reading week has been hectic but i’ve read some good books. Enjoy your long weekend, hope your car will remain in perfect order 😉 Have a great week !

  12. You are lucky to have a cousin you can talk ‘bookish’ to, though I have some colleagues who read, no one as much as me. My daughter follows in my bookish footsteps though. Happy Reading!
