And now, a word from your audience . . .

So I am gone. Yup, gone, as in off to France (Again! I know!). But, my super amazing niece and nephew are here with my in-laws to take care of my family. And as they are the target audience for many of us, I just may have begged a little for them to fill in for me.

So first, here's my 12-year-old niece, a.k.a. Binks, on her favorite book/author and why:

My favorite author is Rick Riordan the author of the Percy Jackson and The Olympians, The Kane series, and The Lost Hero. My favorite part is all the action and the Greek and Roman and Egyptian Gods. I love that he can teach all about the Greek cultures. I didn’t know a lot about any of these cultures but now I know a lot.

My most favorite book is The Lost Hero. It’s really cool because it teaches a lot about both Roman and Greek gods. It has a lot of action too.

 P.S. Since Monday is the 4th of July, I won't be posting then, but look for my nephew's commentary on the 7th. Happy 4th!

Hope you have a wonderful time in France. Tell us all about it when you get back!
Like your niece, my girls love the Percy Jackson series. I'm looking forward to hearing what your nephew likes to read!

Enjoy that trip, I'm sure you're loving it :)

And great Binks Book Review too!

Oh boy, France?! Hope you have an amazing trip.

And thank you Binks for that insight. I haven't read the Percy Jackson books but I want to.

Have a great time in France! I'll have to add Riordan's books to my daughter's read-aloud pile. She keeps begging for HP 4, and we want to wait till she's a bit older (she's just 8). Having some other great adventures in the reading queue will help!

I hope you have a great trip! :)

I haven't read The Lost Hero--although I did like Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

Enjoy France.

I haven't read Riordan yet, but I will.

Take care.

Hi Binks,

I love Rick Riordan too! I learned a heap about Greek mythology from reading the Percy Jackson series. We've just been on holiday in Europe and I knew the stories behind the characters in a lot of he painting and sculptures we saw... from reading those books! I'm about to start the Kane books, really looking forward to it!


(And have a great time in France, Janet!)

I loved the Percy Jackson books, but I haven't read The Lost Hero yet. Thanks for the review, Binks! : )
