Bought, Borrowed & Bagged: Christmas Edition (58)

Bought, Borrowed and Bagged hosted by Talk Supe and Sunday Post hosted byCaffeinated Book Reviewer are both weekly memes where you can share your book haul, ongoing events and news about what is coming up on your blog for the week ahead. I take part with both of these hops fortnightly so I can be introduced to a range of blogs on the atmosphere. Please Note: All images link back to their GR pages.


Insanity by Cameron Jace
I happened to stop by his facebook page and see he was still offering review copies and I managed to get one! I'm so happy. I haven't started it yet because I'm determined to finish Awakening Foster Kelly first which is 704 pages!

Pendomus by Carissa Andrews, Silence by Natasha Preston, Tragic by J.A. Huss, First Ink by Laura Wright, Few Are Angels by Inger Iverson, Open Minds by Susan Kaye Quinn, Cycles by Lois D. Brown, Vengeance, Born and Cursed by Tara Brown, Awaking by Madeline Freeman, Rua by Miranda Kavi, Planet Urth by Jennifer and Christopher Martucci, Death Comes Home by Rhiannon Frater, The Glassheart Chronicles by Courtney Cole and 
Um so apparently I'm still not done with freebies, people are getting very handy at pointing out these freebies during the holidays, I'm too much of a hoarder to say no. But its okay because I'm acknowledging the problem. Right?

News from Lauren

Oh my gosh, Christmas was so good. I'm happy I came home and got to spend so much time with all my family. Its been great and I know I'm going to miss them so much when I return to university but I still have a bit to go until then. Also, woo new books! I picked up DoSaB straight away because I've been dying to read it since I had a nosey at it in the library but knew I needed my own copy.
I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas too, did you get anything amazing?


  1. You got a ton of great stuff. I'm so jealous!

  2. Wow you had some awesome time during the holidays! SO many books! :D And I totally love the shirt, it's great.
    PS would be good to have, even though I barely know how to use one, hahaha XD Brother has XBox and I manage to play 1 game. It's something XD
    And also Freebies... Lol, you're even worse than I am! :D Barely. I got too many to count already :X

  3. Lucky you, lol. I gotta check.

    Oh, and adding to Ula's comment... I have a lot as well. I'll dance when I reach reading 50% of the books I own. Which is well... barely 2% LOL

  4. OMG what a haul...I love that you got the Grant her! Enjoy all of your new toys, movies and books. Have a Wonderful New Year!!

  5. Woah, what a haul!!! Love the shirt and all the freebies!! The PS4 cant be got here in Ireland because they sold out so quick. Enjoy!!! Love the books you got. Laini Taylors is amazing!! Enjoy everything :)

  6. Rua is really good and so is the sequel, Rive!!! Have fun with all your awesome picks.

  7. Holy cow, look at those freebies! You go girl.

    *looks at the bought pile* You got FEED and Parasite, oh such GOOD books. Enjoy!

  8. Wow, you got a bunch of great new books there. I am also a bit of a hoarder so I actually have the same problem with freebies. My e-reader is juts filled with them and I'm afraid I won't have enough time to get to them. Happy reading and Happy New Year!

  9. So many wonderful stuff! Yay on those CClare books & your shirt looks good! Freebies are harmless & another Yay for Laini taylor & Supernatural! Happy new year Lauren!
