Counting the Stars (29#)

counting the stars

Counting the Stars is a meme hosted here at Bookcomet! This meme allows you to display what books you have gained in the last week! Feel free to join.

This is always the post I look forward to the most. For some reason, this edition a lot. As you can see, I never miss a week. This meme has been going on for SEVEN months now! And I’m planning on making that more.

The rules:

  • Post a sticker – whether it be mine or your own (provided it has Counting the Stars on it).
  • Either a) leave a link to your post in the comments below or b) tell me your answers in the comments – either is fine!
  • Try to post titles under at least a few of the catergories below.

Books I bought:

Hmmm. Well. One of the preorders I have been talking about for a few weeks ago FINALLY came. One preorder left to come from an order of six books – yay! But, Chiara over at Books for a Delicate Eternity menitoned on Twitter that she got 7 books for $30 (I think) from the Harlequin Australia website so I kind of jumped at the idea and went over to the site. They have an AMAZING page where they have all these YA books listed for about AUS$4.25, so I ended up buying three books. There were another two I going to buy by I made the decision to just get them from the library. I can’t believe the prices of two of them, both Aussie cover editions I wanted but didn’t want to pay the store price. I’m afraid you’ll have to wait until they come for me to show them. But now, I have a preorder to show you! THANKS CHIARA!!!!!

Oh. My. Goodness. I couldn’t believe that I won Julie Kagawa’s giveaway for two SIGNED books. Usually, I don’t show books I won until I get them but I am just SO excited for these that you’ll get to find out what they are now but without pictures: Pawn by Aimee Carter and Crash into You by Katie McGarry! YAY!

  1. I will have to plan to participate in your meme. I’ll try to look up books I gained this week but I know planning to participate will be better. Good luck. Andrea
