After a long time I found some time to read few books. I have asked my colleagues for some suggestion as I haven't really kept touch with what books are released and which are worth reading. She mentioned to me about Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. I asked her if they are similar to Harry Potter series. She replied, not really and I thought of giving it a try.
Here is the cover page of the first book of Percy Jackson. Btw there are 5 books altogether like 7 of Harry Potter.
The language is pretty simple in these books and children from ages 7-14 can read these books. I would want kids in my family to read these stories and keep the reading habit alive. Otherwise in this electronic world, reading books is fading fast enough.
