Bought, Borrowed & Bagged (48)

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 ReviewerIt'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:
As you can see I've done a fair bit of reading lately, I just can't seem to help picking up lots of new books at once for some reason, but I've had a pretty nice fortnight well apart from my computer blowing up on me! I'm also off on holiday on Friday so other than the few posts I've got queued there wont be much happening and I hope you have a good week! Happy reading. Oh and as you can see I broke my book buying ban for those 6 ebooks but as I got them all for about $9 and some of the money went to charity I think thats okay!


  1. Ooh, I saw Annie Walls post about Darlings of Decay, but didn't realize it was free on Smashwords. Just downloaded it! Thanks :D
