I'm going to do sort of a holiday theme this month. Two of the books will fall under a sort of Mardi Gras theme since the Krewes use Greek, Roman, and Egyptian gods to form the parade they ride in and two will be love stories for Valentines day. Once we pick a title we all agree on we will read it and post a review about it.

Okay the books we have to chose from this month are:

The Red Pyramid (The Kane Chronicles, Book 1) series, about a biracial (white and black) brother and sister who get entangled with the Gods of ancient Egypt. Action-packed and fun.

The Heroes of Olympus, Book One: The Lost Hero series, by Rick Riordan. Sequel to the bestselling Percy Jackson series, about a summer camp for the children of Greek Gods, but can be read independently. Two of the POV-protagonists are of color: Leo has a Hispanic mother and Piper has a Cherokee father, although both also have a parent who is a Greek God.

Ash, by Malinda Lo. A well-written re-telling of Cinderella in which she falls for the King’s Huntress rather than the prince.

Boy Meets Boy, by David Levithan. A romantic comedy set in a town in which homophobia does not exist, and the homecoming queen used to be a guy named Daryl. I’m counting it as a fantasy on the grounds that it’s set in an alternate universe.

Since I can't do a poll other then posting the book titles just post what book you want to read in the comments and we can go from there.
