Waiting on Wednesday (186)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan (10/4/16):

Description on Goodreads:
The second book in the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard trilogy.

Thor’s hammer is missing again. The thunder god has a disturbing habit of misplacing his weapon – the mightiest force in the Nine Worlds – but this time the hammer isn’t just lost. It has fallen into enemy hands. If Magnus Chase and his friends can’t retrieve the hammer quickly, the mortal worlds will be defenseless against an onslaught of giants. Ragnarok will begin. The Nine Worlds will burn. Unfortunately, the only person who can broker a deal for the hammer’s return is the gods’ worst enemy, Loki – and the price he wants is very high.
Why I’m Waiting:
I will always be waiting for the next Rick Riordan book. It’s safe to say, now, that I am a big fan. Also, Norse mythology is so much fun and there’s so much I don’t know about it and I’m so excited to learn. I also love this new set of characters, and I’m anxious to see where things go (after the ending of book 1). I can’t wait for October!
What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I've only read and completed Riordan's very first series. I started on the Heroes of Olympus, but the first book just seemed so long and almost too padded. I've heard the second in that series is better, so I guess I need to just buck up and try again! Good pick, I do love Rick Riordan!
    Check out my WOW

  2. I still need to read the first book here but I am slowly catching up on ALL the Riordan! I can't wait to see his take on Norse Mythology and meet some new characters too :D Great pick^^ xx
