Dewey's Read-a-thon: Top 5 Mini-Challenge

Lisa's World of Books is hosting one of the Dewey's Read-a-thon mini-challenges, which are always a lot of fun. This one asks, "What are the 5 books you are looking forward to in the next few months or really into next year?"

Here are Kate's top 5:
  • The Mark of Athena, next in the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordon, to be published in fall 2012.
  • The Calling, the next book in the Darkness Rising series by Kelley Armstrong, to be published in April 2012.
  • Fear, the next book in the Gone series by Michael Grant, to be published in April 2012.
  • The Ghost of Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelsen.
  • The next book in the Kane Chronicles series by Rick Riordon, to be published in spring 2012.
Here are my top 5:
  • River of Smoke by Amitav Ghosh
  • Half-Blood Blues by Esi Edugyan
  • Perdido Street Station by China Mieville
  • Vortex by Robert Charles Wilson
  • The Mirror and the Light by Hilary Mantel (whenever that will be published)


  1. I find I'm enjoying the Kane Chronicles more than the Heroes Of Olympus series! Like the slower pace adn more character building in that series.

    I've had Perdido Street Station sitting on my shelves for a while. I hope to be in the mood to read it next year!

    Read on!

  2. R! E! A! D!
    Any book that you can see!

    Those are some exciting books to look forward to! River of Smoke just came in for me at the library, and I'm excited to get to it. Enjoy the rest of the readathon!!
