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 that begs to be answered. In the comments, 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?

So...I have a confession to make. I only read one book in December. In my defense, it was a large book and it was during finals week and then I spent the rest of the month working my way through A Clash of Kings which is an amazing book, but also very large. 
However, that one book was definitely worthy of a 10 and so I don't feel guilty. 

So, the best book I read in December was...

...The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan. It's the third book in his Heroes of Olympus series and well worth my wait to read it. I'll probably still be in shock over the ending in October when House of Hades comes out. My decision to read it during finals week was either my worst idea ever, or my best. It made a great motivational tool to study during the day, so I could spend my evenings reading. However, once I started reading I found it almost impossible to put it aside so I could get some sleep. 

Great characters, great plot, and I'm dying for the next one! It was a great book to cap off my reading list for the year.

I haven't read any of Rick Riordan's stuff that I can recall. I've heard of them, but for whatever reason haven't picked them up. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one! :)

I read the first of the PERCY JACKSON series, and enjoyed it. My daughter bought and read the entire series and loved it. I'm glad he's maintaining the quality of his writing. Perhaps one day I'll finish PERCY JACKSON and get to this one. :)

I LOVE Rick Riordan's books!

Ahem, that being said, I only read the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, so reading the second series will be on my to do list this year. It's just...something about that world, makes me so excited and was a big inspiration to me.

So glad to find other fans. :)
