Blog News and Counting the Stars Mega Edition (21, 22, 23#)

So, yesterday I mentioned there was going to be a big post for today.

I wasn’t joking.

Counting the Stars is a meme I run that shares news about books you received and read and what’s on your TBR pile (to sum it up) and having to miss two Sundays means that I have to do a post for all three.

Why did you miss two Sundays, you ask?

I was in New Zealand!

I had an awesome holiday and even took a picture to share with you guys. Especially the one’s of you who like The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings…

Hobbiton

I was lucky enough to visit Hobbiton (the place where some of the filming for The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings took place)! It was like I had just stepped into the movie and extremely interesting. If you are ever in NZ, you have to check it out. I also visited Sydney – also amazing.
