March 2018 Books Bought

Since starting my blog back in August of 2008 I always want to share what books I get with you so that you can see what I will be reading and what new books there are out there and I am always looking for a place to link them so that others can see them so from now on I will be sharing my links on Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality. As Marlene has offered to co-host Stacking The Shelves with Tynga’s Reviews.

I am also going back to sharing my link on Mailbox Monday’s blog. This was originally hosted by Marcia but it now has its own blog which you can see by clicking on THIS.

One of the things I love about these kinds of posts is finding new books that I might not normally hear about and this month I found a few goodies that I heard about through fellow bloggers, on instagram and youtubers.

Going into 2018 I am deciding to switch this up so that I can better document what books, both physical and arcs/earcs, that are coming into my house that I have either bought, was given to me by friends/family, publishers or tour companies plus picked up from Netgalley. So this will only be a monthly post no more weekly posts going forward.

Bought, Borrowed & Bagged #1


I decided that I am going to take part  in the Bought, Borrowed and Bagged (BB&B) that is hosted by Frankie AKA Braine over at . This is a weekly meme where you share what books you have bought, borrowed or bagged (this would be books you won or that were gifted to you).

I will be making this into its own feature instead of putting it in my mailbox posts from today on since I do get some gifted books and I usually forget to share them.

Lets get started. I hope you enjoy seeing these kinds of posts. Please let me know if you do.

Gifted to me from my friend Jennifer:

  • Dashing Through The Snow by Debbie Macomber
  • Kidnapped at Christmas by Maggie K. Black
  • Our First Christmas by Lisa Jackson, Mary Burton, Mary Carter and Cathy Lamb
  • Yuletide Fugitive Threat by Sandra Robbins

I got a gift card from Chapters from my sister for my bday so I bought:

I can’t wait to start this series by A.G Howard. Have you read it?

as well as this one:

Soundless by [Mead, Richelle]

This has been on my wishlist since it came out and I can’t wait to read this. Have you read it?

I was also gifted another Chapters gift card from my sister/brother-in-law/niece & nephew for Christmas so I went and picked up the following during boxing week because they had a promotion of $20 off.

  • The House Husband by James Patterson & Duane Swierczynski (bookshots)
  • A Wedding In Maine by Jen McLaughlin (bookshots) (book 2)
  • Exquisite by Elizabeth Hayley (bookshots) (book 3)
  • Hidden by James Patterson & James O. Born (bookshots)
  • Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell
  • I See You by Clare Mackintosh
