Title: Greek Heroes
On-Sale: August 18, 2015 
Description: Who cut off Medusa's head? Who was raised by a she-bear? Who tamed Pegasus? It takes a demigod to know, and Percy Jackson can fill you in on the all the daring deeds of Perseus, Atalanta, Bellerophon, and the rest of the major Greek heroes. Told in the funny, irreverent style readers have come to expect from Percy, ( I've had some bad experiences in my time, but the heroes I'm going to tell you about were the original old school hard luck cases. They boldly screwed up where no one had screwed up before. . .) and enhanced with vibrant artwork by Caldecott Honoree John Rocco, this story collection will become the new must-have classic for Rick Riordan's legions of devoted fans--and for anyone who needs a hero. So get your flaming spear. Put on your lion skin cape. Polish your shield and make sure you've got arrows in your quiver. We're going back about four thousand years to decapitate monsters, save some kingdoms, shoot a few gods in the butt, raid the Underworld, and steal loot from evil people. Then, for dessert, we'll die painful tragic deaths. Ready? Sweet. Let's do this.

Top Ten Auto-Buy Authors / Top Ten Tuesday #36

Hello & welcome to this week's Top Ten Tuesday. This week's topic is Top Ten Auto-Buy Authors. My last Top Ten Tuesday post was, Fairytales & Fairytale Retellings.

This is one of the hardest lists I've done for a Top Ten Tuesday post. It's next to impossible to narrow my list of favorite authors down, because I have so many of them, whom I adore, and who's books I love. These are only ten out of many authors who's books I highly recommend picking up, although next time I may end up doing a top 25 list, because there are many more author's who are on my auto buy list. 

Here are 10 of my auto-buy authors: aka, the author's who's books I can't get enough of, and they need to hurry and write more books so each month I have a new book from them (kidding, sorta).
  1. Sarah J. Mass
  2. Morgan Rhodes / Michelle Rowen
  3. Cassandra Clare
  4. Maria V. Snyder
  5. Jennifer L. Armentrout
  6. Taherah Mafi
  7. Stephanie Perkins
  8. Leigh Bardugo
  9. Rae Carson
  10. Ally Carter
These authors all have their books shelved on my prized "All Time Favorites" bookcases. I can't get enough of their writing. I've loved their characters they've introduced me to, the worlds they've created, and the stories they've written. In essence, I'm addicting to their books, and can't get enough of them. Waiting for their next book to be released is pure torture.

Whom are some of your auto-buy authors?

OUT TODAY - Tuesday 8.18.15
