Three New Books
Just One Year
Gayle Forman's much anticipated companion book for Just One Day does not disappoint. This book picks up where Willem and Allyson are separated in Paris. Told from Willem's point of view, Just One Day breaks the stereotypes of free-spirits and commitment-phobia boys. Don't miss it!
Love in the Time of Global Warming
Set in post-apocalyptic Los Angeles, rich poetic language marks this re-imagining of Homer's Odyssey. Cyclops, sirens, lotus flowers...it's all there and it's surprisingly relevant.
The House of Hades
The fourth book in The Heroes of Olympus series, House of Hades picks up where The Mark of Athena (book 3) lets off. From Amazon.com: "Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors from both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?"
