This afternoon we had our SMS Guys Read chapter meeting and things got interesting. First of all we started talking about our next group read. As you know we are attacking Rick Riordan's new novel, The Red Pyramid.
(Here are the Red Pyramid novels with The Roar and The Strange Case of Origami Yoda…We plan to read the other novels next.)
Today we listened to the first few pages and checked out Google Earth as Carter and his dad raced around London. Have you ever been reading in front of a computer and used the internet to help you better understand the plot. I find myself doing that all the time. Using Google Earth or some other map program is a great way to find out more about a setting.
Because The Red Pyramid is about Egyptian Gods we thought we would enjoy some Mediterranean fare to end the meeting. Check out our video where we try some whole wheat pita bread and hummus.
I am personally about 50 pages in and loving this new novel. The jokes are fun and the little teases that connect this novel to the Percy Jackson series are great. We have to stay in Brooklyn there are other gods in Manhattan and we need to stay away is a great line.
So read along with us and let us know what you think.
Here's a question to get you into the novel. The chapter titles are very interesting…What chapter title is most interesting to you? What do you think that? Hit that comment button and let us know what you think.
