Last year I couldn’t pick a number one book of the year, so I did a top 5.
That is not the case this year. I have one that comes in above everything. I felt all of the things with it.
Coming in at the #1 spot is....Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan.
If this surprises you, then, what are you, new here?
