Thanks, Rosemary! I'm thinking I'll go with The Son of Neptune because I also loved the first one and just finished it a few weeks ago. Plus, it'll be good for Seriously Serial since it can count as 2 or 7.

I've got Educated on hold at the library, but it will be a few weeks before it arrives. I'll probably go with A Rule Against Murder based on its availability.
