The House of Hades (Heroes of Olympus #4) by Rick Riordan

AHHHHHHHH. The Mark of Athena ending took a huge toll on me, so I'm very cautious with this one but I feel like I'm never prepared with what's going to happen and yes, I'm one of the few people who are still not spoiled with this series so please don't tell me anything. 
Anyways, I had a good blogging week, because I got so much drafts and ideas started that will start going up next week, but reading wise, not so much. I've been really drowsy this week because I do wake up very early for school and I can't really focus in the evening, hence the drowsiness but I will try to get this book done during the weekend. Crossing my fingers. 

Book Beginnings
"During the third attack, Hazel almost ate a boulder. She was peering into fog, wondering how it could be so difficult to fly across one stupid mountain range, when the ship's alarm bells sounded."

The Friday 56
"Kelli had almost killed Percy. She had manipulated Annabeth's oldest friend, Luke, urging him to commit darker deeds in the name of Kronos.
Annabeth really wished she still had her dagger."

I really, really love the humor in this book, because it makes the book multi-dimensional in a way that it's just not adventurous or gut-wrenching but also funny and light-hearted, at times.
Anyone currently reading this series/book?
