The World NEXT ends 

Over the last year, we've started reading a couple of new (to us) series. I just realized how many new books we're looking forward to this summer. Of course, the best/most anticipated is last to come out....

May 1, 2007 - The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 3)
This is the third book in this series. Interesting premise, pretty good execution. Very nice if you like Greek/Roman mythology, but you have to be forgiving as it takes some liberties....

When Percy Jackson receives an urgent distress call from his friend Grover, he immediately prepares for battle. He knows he’ ll need his powerful demigod allies, Annabeth and Thalia, at his side; his trusty bronze sword, Riptide; and . . . a ride from his mom.
The demigods race to the rescue, to find that Grover has made an important
discovery: two new powerful half-bloods whose parentage is unknown. But that’ s not all that awaits them. The Titan lord, Kronos, has set up his most devious trap yet, and the young heroes have just fallen prey. Hilarious and action-packed, this third adventure in the series finds Percy faced with his most dangerous challenge so far: the chilling prophecy of the Titan’ s curse.

May 29, 2007 - Maximum Ride #3: Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports

There's one last chance to save the world in MAXIMUM RIDE: SAVING THE WORLD AND OTHER EXTREME SPORTS, the closing chapter of James Patterson's thrilling trilogy. The time has arrived for Max and her winged "Flock" to face their ultimate enemy and discover their original purpose: to defeat the takeover of "Re-evolution", a sinister experiment to re-engineer a select population into a scientifically superior master race...and to terminate the rest. Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, and Angel have always worked together to defeat the forces working against them--but can they save the world when they are torn apart, living in hiding and captivity, halfway across the globe from one another?

June 1, 2007 - Charlie Bone And The Beast (Children Of The Red King)
This is the sixth book in this series. The first couple of books started off as a placebo for those folks who want more Harry Potter, but still very readable. In fact, when I was reading the first book out loud, I would change the names of the main characters to Harry, Hermione, and Ron - sometimes it would get noticed, sometimes not...  However, still a nice series.

Life should be perfect for Charlie now that his parents have been reunited. But mystery and adventure always find him. This time Asa, a fellow classmate who changes into a beast at dusk, and Charlie's sometime-enemy, is missing. His parents seek out Charlie for help. Manfred is holding Asa captive in a forest cave and now Charlie needs the help of the Flames to rescue his classmate. Manfred has also taken the new endowed student, Dagobert Endless, under his wing and Charlie is highly suspicious of the pair. Can the Flames and Charlie rescue Asa without being caught by Manfred and Dagobert?

July 21, 2007 - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7)
'nuff said
