I have a confession to make…

There’s one thing in this world that I love more than magic.

It’s books.

Right now I’m reading “The Lost Hero” by Rick Riordan. Yes, it’s young adult fiction. Yes, I’m loving it. No, I really don’t care what you think of me!

It’s written by the same guy who wrote the Percy Jackson books, which are also excellent. “The Lost Hero” takes place in the same universe, but features different main characters.
