Book Haul: June 2017 #1

I was really bad in the month of June and went a little over board. I'm getting a new bookshelf so I'm slowly trying to accumulate books to fill it. But I need to slow down a bit :/

Title: PathFinder

Author: Angie Sage

Price: $6

Where: Book Grocer

Synopsis: "The first book in a new arc of the Septimus Heap series, telling the story of Alice TodHunter Moon, a young PathFinder who comes to the Castle with a Magyk all her own"

I picked this up because it was cheap and sounded interesting. I've been picking up a lot of books lately because of BookTube and Book Blogs so I wanted something I hadn't heard of.

Title: Everything Everything

Title: Hunted

Where: Big W

Synopsis: "Beauty and the Beast story for the modern age, expertly woven with spellbinding romance, intrigue, and suspense that readers won't soon be able to forget.Beauty knows the Beast's forest in her bones--and in her blood. After all, her father is the only hunter who's ever come close to discovering its secrets..."

Beauty and the Beast is one of my favourite Disney movies so I'm excited to have all these retellings in my collection.

Title: The Iron Trial (Magisterium #1)

Author: Holly Black and Cassandra Clare

Price: $6

Synopsis: "Most kids would do anything to pass the Iron Trial. Not Callum Hunt. He wants to fail. All his life, Call has been warned by his father to stay away from magic. If he succeeds at the Iron Trial and is admitted into the Magisterium, he is sure it can only mean bad things for him. So he tries his best to do his worst -- and fails at failing. Now the Magisterium awaits him."

Price: $35

Where: Big W

Synopsis: "The plot of the Heroes of Olympus is centered around a prophecy, introduced in The Last Olympian, that predicted seven demigods would unite to protect the earth from Gaea. Demigods from both the Greek camp, Camp Half-Blood, and a newfound Roman camp, Camp Jupiter, work together to save the world from being destroyed by Gaea."

Title: Mistborn Trilogy

Author: Brandon Sanderson

Price: $40.40

Synopsis: "Mistborn is an epic fantasy trilogy and a heist story of political intrigue, surprises and magical martial-arts action. The saga dares to turn a genre on its head by asking a simple question: What if the hero of prophecy fails? What kind of world results when the Dark Lord is in charge?"

I will have a part 2 soon. I just didn't want to make this haul too long.
