Not So Patiently Waiting

There are two books I'm wanting to get my hands on right now the first is Behemoth. If you read Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan, than you are probably are already ahead of me. If you haven't read either, you are in for a treat. The sequel released last week, but my library hasn't yet ordered it despite my begging and pleading. We do have the audio book on the way, which I hear is great, but the illustrations done by Keith Thompson are so great that I want to get my hands on a print copy.

Behemoth continues the alternate history story of an Austrian prince who is running for his life from the Germans. The prince must trust in people he would normally consider enemies to survive.

The second book is The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan and it comes out tomorrow. This book is on order for my library, so I am going to resist the temptation to just run out to the store and buy it. This book is the first in the new Heroes of Olympus series that takes place with the next generation of demigods after Percy Jackson's adventures. If you don't know who Percy Jackson is, you have some awesome catching up to do.


  1. We simply can't stand it at our house--we're going to B and N and get a copy of The Lost Hero with a gift card i got for a summer birthday. But I WILL wait patiently for my copy of Behemoth to come in, even though I'm 14th on the list. The Iron Guy must--wait--IMpatient--I mean, patiently--for--his--copy!!

  2. lol - one of our pages was just bugging me about Riordan's book, reminding me that he put his name down (yes, Brian, you are first on the list) and will we get it the day it comes out and can I make sure it gets catalogued right away and Brian, shouldn't you be, I don't know, shelving or something?

    (P.S. Don't tell him it's actually already here, I need him to at least get a cart done.)

  3. Can't wait to hear what you think of both of those! :)
