Counting the Stars 80#


The rules:

I’m really sorry that some of these books will be repeated from my last wrap-up! But I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m going to start doing these monthly, from now.


Well, I had the entire month of January off from school! And with some money I received for Christmas, I went and bought a couple of books.

    All the bright places! That one has gutted a lot of bloggers of their blood and tears because of how emotional it was. I’ll have to make it a note to buy it when I get a copy. And boo for school! But that’s okay 😉 Knowledge is power, after all! Good luck and study hard!!

  2. Woah, you read so many books this month Olivia! Definitely made the most of your school holidays. I loved All the Bright Places and Falling Into Place, I hope you love them as well.

    Look at all those awesome free books you got! And you read so many books. I’m participating in the YA Bloggers and Readers challenge too. I did it last year and it was fun, though I got way behind so this year I am determined to read the books in the month I’m supposed to. The challenge is a lot more harder this year too, but still heaps of fun. I’m glad Nara put up the whole year’s worth of challenges because I’ll need to plan ahead.
