Los Angeles Times Book Festival Haul!

I was lucky enough to go, this year. 
I managed to  spend my money wisely on BOOKS!!!

I did buy a book at the Target stand. Which was
The Sea Of Monsters
The second novel in the series of Percy & The Olympians
The story follows the adventures of thirteen-year-old demigod Percy as he and his friends rescue his satyr friend Grover from the Cyclops Polyphemus and save the camp from a titan's attack by bringing the Golden Fleece to cure Thalia's poisoned pine tree. 
The book came out to $ 7 which is not bad. 

I was soo happy when I saw the $5 dollar or less bookstore stands..
Hardbacks were five and paperbacks were 3. 
I would of went wild, if I found enough books ;) Here are the three books I bought all in hardback totaling up the prize to $16

Memoirs of a teenage amnesiac:
Gabrielle Zevin
Description on back of book:
If Naomi had picked tails, she would have won the coin toss. She wouldn't have had to go back for the yearbook camera, and she wouldn't have hit her head on the steps. She wouldn't have woken up in an ambulance with amnesia. She certainly would have remembered her boyfriend, Ace. She might even have remembered why she fell in love with him in the first place. She would understand why her best friend, Will, keeps calling her "Chief." She'd know about her mom's new family. She'd know about her dad's fiancée. She never would have met James, the boy with the questionable past and the even fuzzier future, who tells her he once wanted to kiss her. She wouldn't have wanted to kiss him back.
But Naomi picked heads.

The second book has a strangely scary title. I was thinking hard of buying it or putting it back. 

666 The Number of the Beast 
Peter Abraham

A book combined with different horror stories. 

Three Witches
Paula Jolin
Description on back of book:
Three seemingly ordinary girls, studying together in the same ordinary high school. All have their own reasons to summon Trevor Saunders after his car goes over a cliff. Aliya brings the mystical seances of Syria. Gillian contributes the voodoo arts from her native Trinidad. Miya shares the secret magic of ancient Japan. Will they be able use their powers to bring him back one more time? Should they?

I am siked to begin my readings! All seem like wonderful books. 
Leave comments or questions about the books and as well as the festival.

Thank you!!
