The Rangers Apprentice Books 4 – 12 by John Flanagan

OKAY, I admit defeat.  I can barely find time to make it to the computer let alone to post about what I’ve read, so I’m going to do a mass post on the rest of the Ranger’s Apprentice Series.   I loved them ALL and I can’t wait to share this series with my son when he gets old enough!  The characters just get better and better, and the stories remain interesting and fresh. Love love love!

Instead of reviewing them all, I’m going to list the rest of the series with brief comments!  You can see my posts on Books #1, #2, and #3 here, here and here respectively!

The Ruins of Gorlan (The Ranger’s Apprentice #1)

The Rangers Apprentice 1

I stumbled upon this series as I was looking for something to read that I could rent right away from the library.  What a lucky find!  I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the series – I’m currently on book 10 and realized I haven’t posted about any of the books yet.   Suffice it to say that I am TOTALLY HOOKED on the series! I keep having to wait for the books to come off hold on the library (the first was free but since then I’ve had to wait for others) but it’s fully worth it!

Book 1: The Ruins of Gorlan
