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

It’s been a while since I’ve done this, but I’m probably just going to do the last week or two. Or just relatively recently.

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.

This is gonna be a big post. Probably. I was too busy to post a couple of times, plus I went away on holiday, so now I am left with a wrap-up of decent proportions. Let’s do this.

Bought:

I recently bought three books! But since two of them were bought online and it’s Christmas, they still haven’t come yet…

  • Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren MyracleLet It Snow

Won:

  • In the Afterlight by Alexandra BrackenIn The Afterlight (The Darkest Minds, #3)

Gifted:

Haha not yet. I’m pretty sure I’ll get a book for Christmas, so hopefully this spot will be filled next week…

Bought:

I actually didn’t buy a thing. I came so, so close to it but I decided to hold off my purchase until we went to the bookshop closer to where we were staying. That never happened and I was heartbroken.

Won:

Bye for now

This is a little bit of a temporary farewell post.

I’m actually not going to be blogging for a little while. I’m taking a break, meaning that I’m going to be only reading ME books (no review books, etc.).  What does this mean for the blog? Actually not a great deal. I have quite a few scheduled posts done. The only thing is that I probably won’t be responding to comments.

I may or may not have been a little MIA this past week. I haven’t really had the energy to blog but I think it’s coming back now. Unfortunately I’m not so sure that I will be posting much this week because I will have a fair amount of schoolwork to do. Meh.

Another bind-up I’m afraid. I had no time to post this last week but I didn’t really read/gain much so it doesn’t really matter. But here’s my last two reading weeks:

Bought:

Two out of three books I bought came this week! Yay!!!!

  • Between Shades of Gray by Ruta SepetysBetween Shades of Gray
  • Picture Perfect by Holly SmalePicture Perfect (Geek Girl, #3)

I am ridiculously excited for both of those – even if it did nearly kill me to spell grey with an ‘a’. I have heard AMAZING things about Between Shades of Gray (grrrr) and the author’s talk on YouTube is really interesting, and in some ways, shocking. Here’s a link. And as for Picture Perfect, the Geek Girl series is one of my favourite series’ ever and I will talk your ear off if I get going on how much I love it.

Won:

Gifted:

  • Four: A Divergent Collection by Veronica RothFour: A Divergent Story Collection (Divergent, #0.1 - 0.4)
