Waiting on Wednesday: The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo) by Rick Riordan

Why I’m Waiting I fell in love with author Rick Riordan’s writing from the very first moment I began reading Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightening Thief. I’ve always loved Greek mythology, and that series was very fun to read.

Riordan manages to bring up themes of race, racism, sexuality, and the idea of family in such ways that make the reader think without feeling they’re being […]
