I drove an hour and a half to get my tattoo and I got there early. I’d noticed a book shop last time I had gone for my tattoo and I was NOT missing out on it this time. I ended up getting 16 books! Haha, ooooops. All of them were classed as children’s books / young adult. Look at these bargains!
Percy Jackson Books 1 – 4 by Rick Riordan
Condition – Book 1 – 5/10, Book 2 – 10/10, Book 3 – 9/10, Book 4 – 6/10
Blurb (Book 1): I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. That’s when things really started going wrong. Now I spend my time fighting with swords, battling monsters with my friends and generally trying to stay alive.
My thoughts: I’ve read the 1st book once, a long time ago. I really enjoyed the movie too. I’m looking forward to reading the rest.
The Trials of Apollo Books 1 and 2 by Rick Riordan
Condition – Book 1 – 8/10, Book 2 – 9/10
Blurb (Book 1): My name is Apollo. I used to be a god. But that was before I was cast down from Olympus (a terrible misunderstanding) and woke up in a New York dumpster.
I persuaded Percy Jackson to give me a lift to Camp Half-Blood. But the place is in chaos. Demigods are going missing and the all-seeing Oracles have fallen to a mysterious enemy known only as ‘the Beast’.
I figured that regaining Zeus’s favour would involve a series of harrowing trials, and I was right (I usually am). My first task? Protect the final Oracle, hidden away for millennia. If I fail, the Beast will control the future, but worse – I’ll be stuck as a teenage boy, forever…
My thoughts: from the world of Percy Jackson. That’ll do me.
Ranger’s Apprentice: The Ruins of Gorlan by John Flanagan
Blurb: Will, you have been chosen.
You and you alone.
You will become the eyes and ears of the Kingdom, learning to move silent as a shadow.
Your arrow will fly true and your sword will be swift.
You are the Ranger’s Apprentice.
Are you ready?
My thoughts: It looks like an easy read but an interesting read too.
Charming by Elliott James
Blurb: He comes from a long line of Charmings – an illustrious family of dragon slayers, witch finders, and killers dating back to before the fall of Rome. Trained by a modern-day version of the Knights Templar, monster hunters who have updated their methods from chain mail and crossbows to Kevlar and shotguns, John Charming was one of the best – until a curse made him one of the abominations the Knights were sworn to hunt.
That was a lifetime ago. Now John tends bar under an assumed name in rural Virginia and leads a peaceful, quiet life. That is until a vampire and a blonde walk into his bar…
My thoughts: Hmm, I don’t think this should have been in the children’s section but I’m not complaining haha. Sounds interesting!
I also got Vampire Diaries Books 8 and 10 for my collection and some other books which ended up not being the 1st books of the series.
I managed to buy all of these books for the amazing price of £13.50
What do you think of my latest haul? Have you ever read these books? Which book would you want to read first?
As always, thanks again for reading my blog!
