RTW -- Best Book of December

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This Week's Topic:
What is the best book you read in December?

I was a horrible person when it came to reading this month. I actually only finished one book and it's not the one below. I'm still determined to finish this one before the end of the month.
The Lost Hero
by Rick Riordan

So far it's pretty great. It's the first book in Riordan's new Heroes of Olympus series. It contains some of my favorite characters from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series but it's not really a sequel, more like a companion series. You don't have to read Percy Jackson to read these, but I'd suggest it.

I read The Lightning Thief because I wanted to assign it to my students and kinda fell in love with the series. It seems like I would like this one, too. Who are some of the characters that cross over?

I still haven't read any of Rick Riordan's stuff. It's there, at the corner of my brain to do it though.
