Bought, Borrowed & Bagged (50)

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!

- Bought -
xkcd by Randall Munroe, Signal to Noise by Neil Gaiman, The Poison Eaters by Holly Black and Machine of Death by Ryan North
Remember when I bought the humble bundle ebook #2 lot? Yeah well they added these four books to the bundle so I automatically got them. That means I paid like $7 for 10 eBooks and some of that went to charity.

- Bagged -
Moon Child by Tracy E. Banghart and Gargoyle Addiction by Livia Olteano
These are both for book tours, in September!

Catalyst by Jennifer Synder, Awakening Foster Kelly by Cara Rosalie Olsen and The Wizard Tales Vol I - III by Red Tash
These are all review books. Thanks to Braine for setting me up with Catalyst! Thanks to Cara for her book and Red Tash for hers.

Talented by Sophie Davis, Blur by Kristen Middleton, 24 Bones by Michael F. Stewart, The Nightlift: New York by Travis Luedke and Dark Wine by M.D. Bowden
All of these are Amazon freebies, not sure but they might still be up for grabs.
24 BonesThe Nightlife: New York (The Nightlife, #1)Dark Wine (The Two Vampires, #1)

I almost forgot to post this due to the excitement of the announcement of the 12th Doctor, ahhhhh! I'm so excited to see how he portrays him. Anyway, I'm also in the middle of a read-a-thon which is going pretty well considering I like my sleep far too much! Two giveaways still happening so its worth checking those out as they'll have ended before my next BB&B. I read Gone Girl with Kimba which was great fun, we were lucky the book was so ... well you know ... we had loads to talk about! :D
