Mythological Mondays is a feature I created to spotlight books brimming with--you guessed it--mythology! I adore this sub-genre and can't wait to share my love with all of my fellow bookworms! This feature isn't just focused on novel reviews; it may also include interviews, looks at original mythological tales, etc. Please feel free to do this with me! If you guys ever do a mythological feature and want to join this and snag my lovely mermaid, I would LOVE to see the feature. I’ve even included a Linkbox for you. It doesn’t have to be Greek mythology, or even mythology per say. It can be mermaids, unicorns, or heck, even fairy tales (because I’m too lazy to do a separate fairy tale feature…). It doesn’t even have to be every Monday. I’m sure there will be Mondays when I skip, too. ^_^

Today’s Mythological Monday edition features a Cover Reveal of THE SON OF NEPTUNE by Rick Riordan. OMG, isn’t it gorgeous? It was revealed at the end of BEA, and I held off posting it for you all to see until today. (I know, how could I wait that long? Let me tell you, bookworms, it was HARD!)

Who isn’t waiting for the next installment of THE HEROES OF OLYMPUS? This series is seriously filling the hole left behind in my heart when PERCY JACKSON AND THE OLYMPIANS concluded. It’s all that and then some! The first book in the new series, THE LOST HERO, is my favorite book by Riordan. I can’t *WAIT* for SON (haha, S.O.N. are the initials AND The first word in the title…) to come out on October 4th!

How fierce is this cover, by the way? It reminds me of something out of the animated series AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER, especially with all that snow in the background. But isn’t Percy supposed to be in California…? Where is this, Alaska maybe? I want to know how he gets there and why! And what’s the golden bird he’s holding? (I’m ASSUMING this is Percy…especially with a title like THE SON OF NEPTUNE! Our boy MUST be featured in this book!)

I love the way his hair is falling into his face, hiding the dirt-encrusted cheeks. He’s on a quest, a quest, a quest! I want to know more about the quest, especially the golden bird staff he’s slamming into the ice. What is it? There’s no fun object title like THE RED PYRAMID or THE THRONE OF FIRE to let us know what that golden bird really is!
This cover looks GOOD and OMG, I want this book NOW because I am super impatient.

How about you? What do you think?

(And if you haven’t read the PERCY JACKSON books yet, I disown you. No, seriously. I do.)


  1. Maybe he's at the north wind's place again? Wasn't that the place all in ice from LH? I bet that staff has something to do with Roman mythology. It would make sense. How many months until October?! Ugh.

  2. I'm reading the Percy Jackson books now! Please don't disown me! :P

  3. You must quit disowning me immediately!

  4. I loved the first book's cover and this one is following suit. The only thing I wish it was sharper. On my computer screen it looks slightly blurred.

  5. *fangirl squeals* can't wait, also digging the Kane Chronicles and 39 clues <3 Rick Riordan

  6. So Warped is based on Norse mythology? Holy crap!! I will bypass buying a new bathing suit today and go directly to the book store. =)

    I haven't read any of the books you suggested. I need to get on that!

  7. I hope they don't decide to make a movie of this series and muck it up like they did with the Percy Jackson books. That was horrible!

  8. Flashilight Reader: Hm, maybe....or maybe somewhere new! I almost feel like Alaska could be cool... I want to know about that STAFF! *TOO MANY* months left!

    @Small Review: I won't disown you! You're reading them, yay! I can't WAIT to hear your thoughts!

    Bookish Brunette, you must give me reasons to stop disowning you! For shame! *tsks*

    Gina: I love the covers for this series. Disney is throwing money at this in a good way! Ah, it might be my fault it's blurry...I was trying to make it a bit larger after Blogger shrank it...

    @Jen: *fangirl squeals alongside you* I love all these Riordan series, too! Camp Half-Blood is still my favorite world of his, though. I NEED Oct. to come soon!

    @Flashlight Reader:Yes, WARPED has Norse mythology! How have you not read this yet? Now, now, now! *pushes you* I don't think they'll make a movie of this unless they do the next four PJs. They're doing a screenplay for Sea of Monsters, but they'd so need a new cast. The kids are already too old. Heck, re-do PJ1 and do it RIGHT...with kids. Bleh.
