Bought, Borrowed and Bagged #20

BB&B (Bought, Borrowed and Bagged) is a weekly meme, inspired my The Story Siren and Pop Culture Junkie, where we share with you the books that we have bought, borrowed or bagged (won) plus a recap of the previous week's reviews, upcoming reviews, on going events and any news we want to share with our followers.


I had my post all set and done then Tara Sivec has to post on Twitter that Futures & Frostings was available on Amazon. Totally weeks ahead of the slated October release. Of course I nearly lost my shit when I saw that tweet and was running around trying to find wifi so I could download the book ASAP.  Then when I read the acknowledgement section and see Talk Supe mentioned I had to put the Kindle down and do some ugly crying for a few seconds. Gawd, I love a woman who can make me ugly cry and isn't scared to say vagina, vagina, vagina.

I lost sleep over Full Blooded, my eyes were so tired but my brain kept on buzzing. I have to take sleep aid meds so I can rest my eyes!

  23. I'm really curious to know how Red Rain is, I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for your review. I tried watching OUaT, but couldn't get into it. Are you going to try out Revolution? I think it starts Monday night. Looks interesting, hope it holds up!

    - Jessica @ Book Sake

  24. Yay! Once Upon a Time season 2!!! the wait is killing me!

    So many hot covers. And those abs! Oh abs! please, more abs! *snicker* Sorry. They're just so distracting. LOL. I'm really curious about Full Blooded, I've been seeing it more often now. I should check that out some time.

    Thanks for stopping by. By the way, come to think of it, I only found out about the MIBF last year, and they've already been doing it for 33 times? Wonder why I wasn't aware of it before.

    Anyway, happy reading!
