I've read the Percy Jackson series and The Lost Hero series which are both MG books, (as is the Maze of Bones). I haven't read the Tres Navarre series though since it's an adult level series. The Heroes of Olympus is a kind of spinoff from the Percy Jackson series and it's very good. It has all new characters and the such, but I'll explain more about it in my review (which is soon coming).
Rick Riordan always writes with humour. He's brilliant at writing easy to read, action packed stories that everyone, kids, teens and adults can enjoy. He uses various mythologies and incorporates them in his work easily and fluidly. The Percy Jackson series is and will forever remain a classic in my view and I'm super excited to read more about Percy's world in the Heroes of Olympus series.
If you haven't read anything by Rick Riordan, I strongly suggest you should.
