Yay! This week is finally over and I only have one class of tests left to grade!

*cue the heavens parting and angels singing*

My apologies for being sparse on the comments the past few days- finals almost killed me. But today I have a super awesome blog for you to peruse- Book Dreaming by Shannon O’Donnell. Her blog (and comments) are a buttery ray of sunshine when I log on every morning. And she loves books! And recommending them!

So today I’m going to recommend a book I’m not even done with. I recently plowed through The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver and Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. Both were good, but missing that spark to make me fall in love with them.

The Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan sparks. A lot. It’s middle grade AND is all about Greek mythology. Hello? Where the heck was this book when I was in middle school? Not only is it great for us mythology geeks, I mean, er… super awesome geniuses, but the main character, Percy Jackson is hilarious. The book has made me laugh out loud so many times I’ve lost count. You must read it.

So here’s your random question of the day. Who is your favorite god in mythology? I always liked Athena because she’s tough and super smart. And Isis, the Egyptian god of magic is pretty awesome too. Who do you like?
