It was in a package of bookish treats, courtesy of My Friend Amy. After attending Comic-con in San Diego, she offered several giveaways of goodies she’d acquired there. I was the backup winner when one bundle went unclaimed!
The book was Death’s Daughter by Amber Benson. The package also included a cool Dark Horse Comics tote bag, and a variety of promotional pins, bookmarks and other cool stuff (including a key-chain flashlight!). Thank you Amy!
I also bought two new books last week, but we already own them, and I plan to read them very carefully and then pass them on to The Gift of Reading.
The books are Rick Riordan’s The Sea of Monsters and The Battle of the Labyrinth. My daughter brought her copies of all the Percy Jackson books into the classroom, since they were going to read these books (along with other books somehow tying into Greek Mythology) for their lit groups. I ended up being the adult supervision for the two groups listed above, and there weren’t enough copies for the adults, so we had to find our own.
I’d read The Sea of Monsters, but not recently enough to discuss it. That’s as far as I’d gotten with the series. It looks like I’ll be skipping Book 3, at least for the moment.
Mailbox Monday is a weekly post where I talk about the books that have arrived in my house over the last week.
Leave a note here with what new reads came your way (and any thoughts about mine), then check out some other blogs!
