Waiting on Wednesday: Blood of Olympus

Waiting on Wednesday was created over at Breaking the Spine. They are awesome so please go check 'm out!

Now I've got a lot of books I'm looking forward to so I'll definitely keep on posting these every week!

My pick this week is one I absolutely need this moment!

The Blood of Olympus - Rick Riordan to be released on October 7

The Blood of Olympus is the fifth book in the bestselling Heroes of Olympus series - set in the high-octane world of Percy Jackson.
Though the Greek and Roman crew members of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen - all of them - and they're stronger than ever.
They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood -the blood of Olympus - in order to wake. The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood. The Roman legion from Camp Jupiter, led by Octavian, is almost within striking distance. Though it is tempting to take the Athena Parthenos to Athens to use as a secret weapon, the friends know that the huge statue belongs back on Long Island, where it might be able to stop a war between the two camps. The Athena Parthenos will go west; the Argo II will go east.
The gods, still suffering from multiple personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of young demigods hope to persevere against Gaea's army of powerful giants? As dangerous as it is to head to Athens, they have no other option. They have sacrificed too much already. And if Gaea wakes, it is game over...

Well that's what it says on Amazon. I cannot wait! 

Sadly, the cover is not yet revealed. I really like how the American covers look but it's much cheaper to get them in their British edition since I live in the Netherlands. 

I love the Percy Jackson series, absolutely adore it. When I heard that there was another series set in the same world I was beyond the world excited. By then, the first two were out. It's so funny, when the third book was released, I bought the first three books. I got the first two in paperback and the third one in hardcover. Boy, that thing is huuuuuuuuuuuge! Now I also have House of Hades in the huge hardcover edition. It looks ridiculous on my shelves. Seriously.

Hope you enjoyed - leave a comment down below on what you think and which book you're most excited for!
