Bought Borrowed and Bagged #60

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 or gifted) plus a recap of the previous week's reviews, upcoming reviews, on going events and book movie or television news.

Big & Small
WITCHES OF EAST END the upcoming Lifetime series based on the book with the same title by Melissa de la Cruz is scheduled to premier on October 6, 2013 at 10PM EST.  The myth of the series is based on Norse myth with a hint of the Salem witch trials. The lead characters are a family of witches who are actually Norse Goddesses in disguise, living in East Haven (the Hamptons).

I am a little apprehensive about this series being on the Lifetime channel because I'm afraid they'll make it more romantic than it really is. I'm also not a big fan of Jenna Dewan but to be fair, I think she can pull of Freya.
The series stars Julia Ormond, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, M├Ądchen Amick and Rachel Boston.

  1. I have to agree with you on the Witches of East End. I wasn't a big fan of the book but have high hopes that I will enjoy an adaptation of it better. But you're right...Lifetime will most likely make it more romancey than it was.

  2. I just added Catalyst to my wishlist! I look forward to your review c:

  4. This is the first time I hear about this series, but I love a good goddess story so will try this TV show for sure.

    1. Fingers crossed it'll be tolerable enough.

  5. You got some good freebies. I love the cover of Into the Dark. Enjoy your books!

  6. Gimme some of that Dragon Kings swag! ;-) Into the Dark looks interesting. Can't wait to see your review.

  7. I've never read Witches of East End. I will have to set my DVR for it. I know what you mean though, whenever a book is turned into a movie/show, I'm always a bit nervous.
