Stacking the Shelves #1

So this morning I woke up to an exciting little email from Amazon that said a bunch of popular books were going to be on sale for today only! Of course, I had to check it out! What did I find, you ask? Only my favorite author of all time . . . Rick Riordan! Here's what I picked up for only $1.99 each!! (and remember that is today - Saturday the 28th - only!)

Seeing that The Son of Neptune, the second book in the Heroes of Olympus series, was on sale, I immediately picked that one. They also had many, if not all, of the Percy Jackson books but, as I already have all 5 of those in paperback, I decided to pick something else. Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard is supposed to be a series about Norse Mythology, centered around an entirely new group of characters than the Percy Jackson series so I was excited to check that one out, as well! I chose the first book, The Sword of Summer, of course. And for only $1.99 a piece? Who could resist that!

The only problem is, now I have to go back and finish the Percy Jackson series. Well, in all honesty, it's been long enough that I should probably go back and read all of them so that I know what's going on. The Heroes of Olympus series picks up after then end of the Percy Jackson series so I don't want to give away what happens in book 5 by starting a new series.

And lastly, I am participating in the #DashnerDash for the next few months as we re-read the entire series while waiting for the arrival of book 5 in the Maze Runner series, The Fever Code! It doesn't come out until September 27 but we will be reading one book a month, starting with the Maze Runner . . . well, yesterday! Each month on the 27th, we will be reading the next book! So I'm heading out to sit in the sun (while it lasts . . . looks like rain) and start re-reading one of my favorite dystopian books of all time!

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone!
