Bought, Borrowed & Bagged (47)

BB&B (Bought, Borrowed and Bagged) is a weekly meme hosted by Braine and  Debbie @ Talk Supe where we share with you the books that we have bought, borrowed or bagged (won or gifted) plus a recap of the previous week's reviews, upcoming reviews, on going events and book movie or television news and The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It's a chance to share news; a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. As you can see I've decided to link on another weekly haul/wrap up meme because I'd like to start visiting some new blogs on the atmosphere and I find meme's are the best way to do so!

News from Lauren:
Okay so it’s pretty much official now, I have far too much time on my hands now I’m not in college. I’ve even volunteered helping to garden, I really dislike gardening because I hate my hands getting dirty. I go on holiday in a few weeks too which will be a nice trip abroad too and I intend to do a lot of poolside reading! I also un-tagged all my posts here and re-tagged them so its a much neater and easier to navigate and at some point I’ll be getting a new custom made design implemented but I’ll let you know more about next time around hopefully. I'm posting a day early this week because I have another two posts going up tomorrow! Other than that I have very little to report so I’m going to provide you with a few events I’ve been invited too on Goodreads that you may be interested in:

Talk Supe 2nd Blogoversary eBook Giveaway – Ends 30th June
Tin God Super Sale – Ends 3rd July
Riley Banks is offering a copy of Vampire Origins to all her Goodreads friends – Ends 30th July
Ellen has started up a new blog ranging from book review to travel to Korean drama quotes.
Amber is hosting a Debut-a-Thon from June 27th - 30th 


  1. Great haul! I really hope that you enjoy everything. :) They sound great!

  2. I wasn't the biggest fan of stitch/ Hope you like it more than I did!

    1. Well it was a freebie so I wont be loosing out if I don't. TY

  3. I have Stitch too, looking forward to it. At least time on your hands, gives you lots of time for reading and blogging :-)

    1. Very true indeed, its nice but I'll no doubt flop when I start university.

  4. I got Stitch last week. Also, I just finished Delirium last week--loved it! I see you're reading A Clash of Kings--that one was really good, but I liked A Storm of Swords even better. I'm reading A Feast for Crows, but I haven't gotten very far into it yet. Also I see that you're reading Marked by PC Cast...I loved the first four, but after that the books got progressively worse IMO. I've got book 9 in my possession, but I can't even really bring myself around to reading it. UGH! Maybe you'll enjoy them more than I did though.

    1. I'm really enjoying it so far and I'm pretty sure I will for the rest of the series, Martin has a great way with words.
      I've heard the same about the Marked series, but I was gifted book 1-8 so I figured may as well.

  5. Nice haul. Happy reading :)
