Okay so I didn't exactly stop doing the meme. I skipped a few days, but continued on ST. Oh well.

Moving along.

I just finished the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series, and I have to say, I liked it way more than I even thought I would. I loved the way it escalated throughout, until the final book was practically one big battle with little breaks in the middle. And I learned a ton about Greek mythology. I mean, not all of it is 100% accurate, but most of it's on the level. Finishing this series has me interested in Labyrinth and that new move Clash of the Titans (well, new remake). Though why it's called Clash of the Titans when there are no Titans in it is beyond me.

In other news. Brandon Sanderson's LJ ([livejournal.com profile] mistborn) now has the artwork for The Way of Kings up. I'll admit I saw this the other day and it completely went over my head what that meant. I thought it was part of the Wheel of Time series he's finishing for the late Robert Jordan. But no--it's for his own new series, starting in August, and I am beyond excited. I mean, really.

I should really read the Wheel of Time books. I mean, if he loves them, strong chance I will too. But anyway.

I think my next stop will be reading Graceling by Kristin Cashore. I got it a while ago--just before NaNoWriMo--and Cashore was actually one of the NaNo peptalk authors, yet I haven't gotten around to reading it yet. I mean, technically I should read The Book Thief since it's assigned for class, but er, not if I can avoid it. Blah. I've read half, and I like the writing style, but the topic just isn't my thing.

Guess that's it for now.
