But that's Monday. We're here to do Book Beginnings and Friday 56. So let's get to it, shall we?
This week's book is The House of Hades by Rick Riordan. I know, I know, I'm the last person on earth to finally get it read. But I will have my review up on Sunday. It was really good. Anyway, it starts like this:
During the third attack, Hazel almost ate a boulder.
And jumping to some other characters, on page 56 we find:
Annabeth didn't want to think about it, but sadly, this squad of flesh-eating horror-show women might be the closest thing to good luck they were ever going to get in Tartarus.
Since this is book four in a second series about these characters, I don't recommend jumping in here. But the series are both really quite fun and worth reading.
