Spotlighting Books #1

July 6, 2016 Misc. 10

Spotlighting Books ButtonI have way more books than I will possibly get to and I want to put a spotlight on some of them that I have got that I can’t wait to read but since I am behind it might take me a while to get to them. 🙂 I am sure nobody else has this problem. 😉 So I decided to devote one day a week to a few books that I have on my shelf whether it be audio, print or ebook.  I know I have seen some other bloggers do something similar to it but don’t know who might have started it, so just trying to do my own version.  Michelle from Because Reading made me a wonderful button!

Today it’s two books that Disney Hyperion sent me but I haven’t had a chance to read them because one is a spin off of a series that I am seriously behind on and I heard I needed to read all the other ones first or there could be spoilers for the other books and the other is the second book in a series and I didn’t have the first one (though I do now have it on my kindle but still not gotten to it.

I always get giddy when I get things from Disney Hyperion so I do want to spotlight them.

Apollo

How do you punish an immortal?

By making him human.

After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus’s favour.

But Apollo has many enemies – gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go . . . an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.

I am still on the Percy Jackson novels and I see this one is set in Camp Half-Blood as well which is why I figure I should read the others first. 🙂 I really can’t wait to read it so I am going to have to jump in and finish the other so I can get to this one.

return to lost isle

There’s no place like home. Especially if home is the infamous Isle of the Lost. Mal, Evie, Carlos, and Jay haven’t exactly turned their villainous noses up at the comforts of Auradon after spending their childhoods banished on the Isle. After all, meeting princes and starring on the Tourney team aren’t nearly as terrible as Mal and her friends once thought they would be.

But when they receive a mysterious invitation to return to the Isle, Mal, Evie, Carlos, and Jay can’t help feeling comfortable in their old hood—and their old ways. Not everything is how they left it, though, and when they discover a dark mystery at the Ise’s core, they’ll have to combine all of their talents in order to save the kingdom.

 

I really want to read this series and I watched the Disney channel movie The Decendents so I might could go ahead and read this and not be lost but I know movies and book are a lot different so I figure I best read Isle of the Lost first before diving into this one! 🙂

Have any of you read these books? What are your thoughts on them? I know I can’t wait to get to them and wish I could read like a book a day!

      Thanks, I snuck the feature from some other blogs that call it something different. At least I know I have seen it around but tried to put my own name on it…lol.

    What a great feature. I would love to start the Riordan series but there are so many and they all tie in together so it’s a big task to undertake. This is a wonderful idea to showcase more books! I usually try to post reviews on Thursdays but this is a great idea and maybe I will do something similar sometime.
