Reading Roundup – 12th July 2013

July 12, 2013

For this week’s reading roundup I read Rick Riordan’s short story The Son of Sobek in which Percy Jackson from the Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus series meets Carter Kane of the Kane Chronicles.  It was a fun read, if nothing majorly exciting.  I was disappointed that the enhanced ebook version with narration from author Rick Riordan was not available for Canadians – indeed, I purchased it on Kobo.   It also contains a sneak peak at the fourth book in the Heroes of Olympus series, House of Hades, which I am really looking forward to.

I also read The Companions by R.A. Salvatore, which I received as a free copy from Netgalley.  I plan to write a full review of it later, so I will save my thoughts for then.  Suffice it to say, I wish I’d discovered R.A. Salvatore much sooner.

The final book I read/listened to was The Lost Colony, the fifth in Eoin Colfer’s Artemis Fowl series.  This is a series I much prefer listening to on Audible, mainly because of Nathaniel Parker’s wonderful narration.  His accent work and general excellent storytelling make this series a joy to listen to.  Check out a sample. The Lost Colony is no exception to the high standard of this series and I enjoyed it very much.  it is not available for Canadians on Kindle, but you can pick it up on Kobo

Next week is, of course, BookTubeathon, and I’m very excited to be taking part.  I will be blogging updates throughout the week with my progress.  If you’re taking part too, let me know how you’re getting on in the comments.
