WAITING ON WEDNESDAY: Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods by Rick Riordan

What better book than Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods by Rick Riordan, featuring Percy Jackson himself telling us all about those myths that inspired his lengthy adventures, for Waiting on Wednesday this week, right? I’ve been a huge fan of both the Percy Jackson & The Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus series by Riordan, and he remains one of my favourite authors, so I’m 100% positive that this book will be to my liking. The Greek Gods and their eternal bickerings with the world of mortals make for such great stories, but often times they can be quite tedious to read in their original texts, so having Riordan approach the subjects with Percy’s wit and sarcasm will surely make for an entertaining read! The book will also feature illustrations by Caldecott Honoree John Rocc! Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods comes out August 19th through Disney Hyperion, just in time for The Heroes of Olympus’ final book The Blood of Olympus!

ImageWho could tell the origin stories of the gods of Olympus better than a modern-day demigod? Percy Jackson provides an insider’s view with plenty of ‘tude in this illustrated collection. So begins Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods, in which the son of Poseidon adds his own magic–and sarcastic asides–to the classics. He explains how the world was created, then gives readers his personal take on a who’s who of ancients, from Apollo to Zeus. Percy does not hold back. “If you like horror shows, blood baths, lying, stealing, backstabbing, and cannibalism, then read on, because it definitely was a Golden Age for all that.

    • I felt the same when I started the series, but then I pretty much read all of the books in a month, they’re just so good and addicting! The Percy Jackson & The Olympians books are really easy to get through, so I’d really recommend starting on the series 🙂
