For most of you in the Northern Hemisphere, the summer heat has slipped away and been taken over my the whirling winter winds.
Which, if you’re someone like me, you’re 100% OK with! And honestly, it’s more encouraged than anything else.
Because this weather means that it’s finally time to bust out the fluffy scarves and warm blankets as we are able to cozy up with a stack of stories as the harsh snow tumbles down outside.
For this month, I have chosen a series that will whisk us away into a whole, new fantasy setting.
Here is this month’s selection that is great for the Greek mythology lovers and those who are new to the world of YA Fantasy!
The Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan!!

“Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can’t seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse – Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy’s mom finds out, she knows it’s time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he’ll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends—one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena – Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.”
