The Mark of Athena ~ Rick Riordon

This is the third installment of "The Heroes of Olympus". This book has action, is war like, is funny-with a bit of comedic romance and references to many of my favorite shows like "Pokeman" and "Mythbusters." This is a great book that I recommend to anyone because it is fast paced and easy to read. To all that have read the previous books, add all that excitement and suspense and put it into a book spine and you get this!

Gone Girl ~ Gillian Flynn

Nick is about to celebrate his 5th anniversary with Amy.  But he comes home from work to find the door wide open, the indoor cat outdoors, and the living room torn up-as if there was a struggle- and his wife gone.  What a wonderful, suspenseful novel that is really twisted!
