{ Thoughts }

So I went a bit Ally Carter crazy this week. I already had book one of the Gallagher Girls so I went about looking for the rest of the series in the library/charity shop. I also won a giveaway on Young Readers At Home and received a copy of Perfect Scoundrels (woo) so I went to get the first two heist society books out of my school library. My charity shop always has awesome books and they're 99p each and this week I picked up The Count of Monte Cristo which is MAHOOSIVE so that was a really good deal. I read Bleak House by Dickens which was similarly long and it took me an age so I probably won't ever finish this book. I think I also got some ebooks for review but I've already forgotten which ones (memory of a goldfish). 

What did everyone else get this week? Let me know in the comments below! :)

(Also I just finished The Fault in Our Stars - omg. skdhfkasfhgkagfahfdgahgkfdhadkghadbkabdkfaqwkhvakcbkashgakyghahjsfv)

    1. I know right! Carboot sales are another good place to check out for books. The problem is that they're so tempting I've bought faaaar too many of them :(

  7. Gallagher Girls! Woo!!!! That is one of my favourite series of all time, and Ally Carter is such a brilliant author. I still need to try her new series, Heist Society, though. Hopefully it's as phenomenal as GG. :)

    Oh my gosh, The Count of Monte Cristo is one of the biggest books I've ever seen! That would take me sooooo long to get through. I hope it is interesting and holds your attention throughout. :)

    Enjoy all of your beautiful new books! I'll be looking forward to your reviews. :)

    By the way - JGVERHBJWKEBSFSF The Fault in our Stars was freaking amazing!!!!!! I'm still trying to write a review for it, but it's so hard because all I want to do is fangirl!

    1. Ooh yay! Nice to hear good things about this series. People seem to be pretty obsessed with her series aha

      I know!! I only picked it up because I want to do French at uni so I'm trying to plough through lots of translations haha

      Me too!! After I finished reading it I just rolled around in my bed for a while!

      Thanks for stopping by :)

    1. I totally agree! I've just flown through the entire Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz and I've found that going through a series book by book is probably better than reading each book and waiting a year for the sequel!

  9. Wow, so many Ally Carter books! I have only read the first two books of the Gallagher Girls series but they are fantastic. I really want to read Heist Society, especially with the 3rd one recently being released. Happy reading! :)
