Bought, Borrowed & Bagged #1

BoughtBorrowedBagged

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 http://www.talksupeblog.com/ . 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

What books have you been gifted lately? Be sure to come back next week because I have another post with books I have been gifted from Lucy from Moonlight Gleam Reviews.

Its really hard to believe that this is one of my last posts for 2016. Where did the year go?

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and wishing you all a joyous and Happy New Year.. all the very best for 2017.

I guess its time I share with you all the books that I bought this month. I am hoping that this won’t be a crazy long list but I am thinking it might be because there was quite a few books I wanted to pick up this month (as its my birth month)  and a lot were released this month  plus it was my birthday and Christmas this past month.

So this is my final haul of 2016. I have included the number of books I bought this year as well as how many of them I read.

  1. Merry Christmas, Alex Cross by James Patterson
  2. Marry Me at Christmas by Susan Mallery
  3. The Mirror Sisters by V.C Andrews
  4. Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan
  5. The Christmas Mystery by James Patterson w/ Richard DiLallo (bookshots)
  6. Radiant The Diamond Trilogy bk 2 by Elizabeth Hayley (Bookshots)
  7. Black & Blue by James Patterson with Candice Fox (bookshots)
  8. Hot Winter Nights by Codi Gary (Bookshots)
  9. Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
  10. All She Ever Wished for by Claudia Carroll

Featuring a retractable ball-point to save the liner of your purse from life-shattering ink stains and a stylish design that won’t quit, this pen is totally on point. One better, the gold crystals bring success and confidence so you can pretend like you’re balling and not on a budget. Black ink.

whitepen
Show up to your morning meeting like a boss with this ultra-glam sparkling pen.

Since I had a gift card for $10 off it made one of the pens free and I couldn’t decide which one I wanted because they are both so pretty.

Good Morning everyone. Where is the time going? Its hard to believe its already the end of August and that means summer is over. Michael is back in school next week. Hard to believe he is going into grade 8.

I am complete shock this month! I only purchased 4 books. This is a record for me!

I think what curbed my book buying this month was that we went to Toronto for a few days earlier in the month, we are currently renovating the basement, dh was on a month’s vacation, no Friday morning dates with Jennifer, and I am completely addicted to buying planner stuff so when we were in Toronto I was looking in all the Michael’s craft stores instead of bookstores. Perhaps that will be a nee feature on my blog…. lol

When I look at the total books I have bought and read and I think I am 1/4 of the way through that. So I am slowly making progress on that but the last month or so its been hard to squeeze in some reading or to stay motivated to read. I think once things get back to normal it will be easy to get back on track.

  1. Chase (Bookshots) by James Patterson & Michael Ledwidge
  2. Let’s Play Make-Believe (Bookshots) by James Patterson & James O. Born
  3. Viking Warrior Rising by Asa Maria Bradley
  4. Sunset in Central Park by Sarah Morgan
