Waiting on Wednesday #1 - The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. This meme is for books that haven't come out yet but we're still excited for.

This week I'm waiting for:
Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #1 (The Sword of Summer) by Rick Riordan

Release Date: October.6/2015

Goodreads Summary:
Magnus Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother’s mysterious death, he’s lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers. One day, he’s tracked down by a man he’s never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. The man tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god. The Viking myths are true. The gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Trolls, giants and worse monsters are stirring for doomsday. To prevent Ragnarok, Magnus must search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years. When an attack by fire giants forces him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents, Magnus makes a fatal decision. Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die . . . 

Waiting Because:
I really enjoyed reading the Percy Jackson series and I am excited to jump on Riordan's new series. I already pre-ordered this one for Kindle so I'll be on my to read list as soon as it comes out. It sounds very similar to Riordan's other story lines but Norse God's sound awesome. Please give me some Thor to dream about ;) 


  1. I read the first Percy Jackson book and enjoyed it but never went back to any of the other books. Wonder if this new series will be really good too. I hope you enjoy it!

    My WOW: http://mommywantstoread.blogspot.com/2015/09/waiting-on-wednesday-im-waiting-on.html

  2. I liked the Percy Jackson series but have not read much else by Rick Riordan. My friend Melissa is a fan though. Hope you enjoy it!

  3. I'm super excited about this book as well! I'm hoping to pick up the last book in the Percy Jackson series soon, but I've also been reading his spinoffs :) Great post! Here's my Wow!
