day 7 person 15 and DONE!
For fans of Lightning Thief a story built around Mayan myths. Great main character and lots of action.
If you like Rick Riordan' s books, you will like this too. In fact this book is part of the Rick Riordan Presents campaign. The main character is Zane Obispo who learns his heritage as well as his destiny in the first book of this series. JC Cervantes explores Mayan gods and myths as she creates an adventure that won't disappoint fans of mythology. Book 2 comes out in the fall of 2019.
It was wonderful to see J.C. Cervantes at the Tucson Festival of Books last weekend. The Storm Runner is a fun, thrilling romp through a world of untapped magic and endless possibility. We recently interviewed J.C. Cervantes about her writing process and her interactions with readers.
This book is exciting for a number of reasons, so I hoped to get my copy signed when I met the author. However, I met the author in a social situation while she spoke to another cool author whose book I did not have on hand. It‘s not like I‘m a smooth talker in the best of situations, so I just excused myself.
My first finished book of #24in48 with just under 9 hours of total reading done. I enjoyed the story but it didn‘t really grip me quite as I thought it would. The latter part of the book definitely picked up and the ending was really good so I‘ll probably give the sequel a go when it comes out. #rickriordanpresents
I‘m almost done with The Storm Runner but I can‘t keep my eyes open for much longer so I decided to get some sleep and finish it first thing in the morning. I‘ve gotten a decent 7 hours of reading in today which I‘m proud of! #24in48 #huomennalissää #bujo
I‘m ready with my #tbr for my first ever #24in48 readathon! I‘m hoping to get to at least the 12 hour mark; it‘s been a while since I‘ve read for a really long time as my attention span isn‘t what it used to be but I‘m super ready to try this! #bujo

Any thoughts on which of these to read first?
I love my sister! (Who's not on Litsy.... yet) 😉 Because she let me borrow these as she has prime and release day delivery, and my Lantern's Ember and Storm Runner have not yet shipped (with my Lu's Wildcard). And she mostly has the same taste in reading as me. 😁📚 Lended #bookhaul !! 💃🕺
Another in the “Rick Riordan Presents” series, this explores Mayan mythology. I really love that Riordan is helping authors explore world mythology, but I wish there was a little more originality in this story. There are so many similarities to both the Harry Potter and Percy Jackson books that I stopped keeping track. There‘s nothing really wrong with the story - it‘s fun and fast and very engaging - but it‘s been told before. 50%pick/50%SoSo
Was delighted to come home tonight to a parcel from the wonderful @LibrarianRyan! It's super rad that she decided to share some of her Book Expo treasures with Littens who couldn't attend. All of these sound like amazingly fun reads- not sure how I'll decide what to pick up first!
