July Book Haul

So for some reason I decided that this month was going to be the month of Percy Jackson/Rick Riordan, and I ordered several complete box sets of Riordan series’. Here’s the Riordan haul 📚

Percy Jackson and The Olympians

Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can’t seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse-Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him.

You’ve probably either heard of or read this series. I have, but I want to reread them and I don’t seem to have the complete set I had in middle school anymore 😅 So I ordered a new set.

The Heroes Of Olympus

Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently she’s his girlfriend Piper, his best friend is a kid named Leo, and they’re all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for “bad kids.” What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea—except that everything seems very wrong.

I started this series when it first released and I just didn’t get into it as a kid, so I’m hoping that I’ll love it the second time around. I’ve heard nothing but great things so I have very high hopes.

The Kane Chronicles

Since their mother’s death, Carter and Sadie have become near strangers. While Sadie has lived with her grandparents in London, her brother has traveled the world with their father, the brilliant Egyptologist, Dr. Julius Kane. One night, Dr. Kane brings the siblings together for a “research experiment” at the British Museum, where he hopes to set things right for his family. Instead, he unleashes the Egyptian god Set, who banishes him to oblivion and forces the children to flee for their lives.

Just like Heroes Of Olympus I gave this a try when it first came out and I just didn’t click with Egyptian mythology like I did with Greek. So I’m giving it another go.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard

Magnus Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother’s mysterious death, he’s lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers.

One day, he’s tracked down by an uncle he barely knows—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. Uncle Randolph tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god.

The Viking myths are true. The gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Trolls, giants and worse monsters are stirring for doomsday. To prevent Ragnarok, Magnus must search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years.

When an attack by fire giants forces him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents, Magnus makes a fatal decision.

Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die . . .

I’m probably most excited to read this series. I’ve never tried it, but Norse Mythology fascinates me. Fingers crossed that it’s as awesome as I’ve been told.

Yep, so I’ve declared July the unofficial Rick Riordan month. I’m so excited to read these! Have you read any of them? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Great book haul! (Makes me a bit jealous heehee) I can’t have a book haul until after our family moves (we are looking for a new house) because books are just sooo heavy! Nice post! These are good choices!

  2. I love Rick Riordan’s books! Greek Mythology is one of my favourite things to read and learn about so when I discovered Riordan’s Percy Jackson series a good when I was a kid, I knew I was going to love the series. I’ve also been reading his Trials of Apollo series which I really love too as Apollo is one of my favourite Greek Gods alongside his Twin Sister Artemis. I hope you love all these books!
