It doesn’t seem like a big deal, but for publishers, booksellers, and fans alike, it really is impressive.
Considering that there have been movies based on books that came out in August, not one of them a Percy Jackson film, and the popularity of some of the books listed, it’s impressive to see The Blood of Olympus out on top for said month. I’m not saying it’s that much of a surprise when you think about the social media activity of Percy Jackson fans around the world, but it’s still impressive.
Also, it’s no surprise that John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars and Gayle Foreman’s If I Stay is up there, since their movie counterparts are either still in theaters or on digital download. This only goes to show how awesome Rick Riordan‘s books are, despite the lack of a movie for this specific one.
The Blood of Olympus is set to be released on October 7, 2014, while the signed and numbered special limited edition of the book with slipcase will be available on October 21, 2014.
