The Sea of Monsters is being made into a movie! It comes out in August!!
I know that the first one wasn't particularly true to the book, but it was good on its own as a movie. I am looking forward to this one, even though Anthony Head is replacing Pierce Brosnan as Chiron.
Mostly, I am happy because Rick Riordan is an AWESOME writer and person and deserves every good thing that happens to him. Here's my quote of the day from him: “I still kind of feel like I’m a teacher,” he says. “I just have several million students in my classroom.”
