NaBloPoMo 2014 – Day 3: GoodReads Challenge 2014

Yay! Day 3. So far so good.

So, I just found out that I missed two book releases for two separate series that I’m following. I’m not sure how I feel about that, *lol*, honestly. I’m upset at myself for missing them and yet I’ve just been so busy that I’m glad I didn’t see them earlier because I’d have ignored my homework.

But now, I have two new books I can read. Yay! Gosh, I’m such a geek.

The two new books are … *drum roll* … The Blood of Olympus (Heroes of Olypmus, #5) by Rick Riordan and A Charming Secret (Magical Cures Mysteries, #6) by Tonya Kappes.

The Heroes of Olympus is basically a continuation of the Percy Jackson series, for those of you aren’t keeping up, and I love it. Riordan does a really good job of blending this world of Greek and Roman Mythology into modern-day stories. I like the way this continuation is going and I’m excited to see what’s in store with this one. The down side, I feel as if I should reread the last one just so I can get my bearings, which I don’t have time for. At the moment. So, I have it on my TBR queue, but not sure when I’ll get to it.

The Magical Cures Mysteries is AWESOME! I really like this world. I don’t think I’ve done a book review on any of the books in this series, yet, but I really hope to some day. Truth be told, I read this series almost non stop. When I discovered the first book, the series was already five books into the series and once I read the first book I couldn’t stop.


Not to mention I’m trying to catch up with The Goth and the Ghost series by Stacey Kade. And the Oh My Gods! series by Tera Lynn Childs. Sighs.

So how does this relate to your GoodReads Challenge?

Well, I’m at 83% and right on track to complete my challenge to read 60 books this year. And with this semester being International Relations 101, I really hope I make it. 

  • What series are you reading?
  • Are there any books you are waiting on?
