Waiting on Wednesday (221)

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 Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan (5/2/2017):

Description on Goodreads:
Zeus has punished his son Apollo—god of the sun, music, archery, poetry, and more—by casting him down to earth in the form of a gawky, acne-covered sixteen-year-old mortal named Lester. The only way Apollo can reclaim his rightful place on Mount Olympus is by restoring several Oracles that have gone dark. What is affecting the Oracles, and how can Apollo do anything about them without his powers? After experiencing a series of dangerous—and frankly, humiliating—trials at Camp Half-Blood, Apollo must now leave the relative safety of the demigod training ground and embark on a hair-raising journey across North America. Fortunately, what he lacks in godly graces he's gaining in new friendships—with heroes who will be very familiar to fans of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Heroes of Olympus series. Come along for what promises to be a harrowing, hilarious, and haiku-filled ride. . . .
Why I’m Waiting:
I’m beyond excited for the next installment. I’ve come to love Rick Riordan over the years. And the first book in this particular series had me laughing out loud over and over. It’s not every day that a girl gets read a fantasy book with that much humor. It had all the high action, fast paced fun of Riordan’s previous books and series, but with the added bonus of hilariousness. Apollo is unlike any other character. And I cannot wait to read more from his point of view.
What are you waiting on this week?

  1. I love how Rick Riordan combines fantasy action with humour too :D I've only read his Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series, but I think I will be diving into this one once all the books are out. I love that you say Apollo brings something new to the tale!
