Bought Borrowed and Bagged #64

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. 

from Amazon for $1.99
I've never read an Amish novel and a YA-Sci-Fantasy at that. After Lee at She-Wolf Reads reviewed THE OUTSIDE (bk 2)  I immediately added The Hallowed Ones (series name) to my TBR. Luckily, book 1 of the series went on sale in anticipation for the release of book 2 and naturally I went ahead and grabbed a copy.

Big & Small
Finally the season is over! I'm super glad that the Billith arc has been laid to rest and it looks like the weres will be out of the picture too together with the fae (?). I'm still unsure if I liked this season but it is an improvement from S5 IMO. 

Sure enough, the finale was one for the books. My eyes bugged out when Eric Northman did a full frontal and showed us the Swedish sausage Sookie has been feasting on. Thank God for DVR I was able to rewind that part just to make sure I DID see it. Even if he's wearing a sock, one can still cop out ASkars' boy bits. 

I'm a little miffed though, I wish HBO didn't give us spoilers by releasing a statement that Eric Northman lived after getting burned in the Alps. I mean we do have an inkling that they won't kill off a popular character but it sure is fun to keep the fans speculating for a while.

As for the ending and obvious S7 storyline, are you sold on the impending Vampocalypse?

  1. I totally agree with your True Blood recap. I didn't love this season, but it was definitely better than last season. Is it just me that hates Sookie now??

    As far as books go, yay, great haul! Most are new to me, I have seen Scorch around a but lately, so I've had my eye on that one. I'm eager to see what you think. Enjoy your goodies!

    1. You're not alone, I'm disappointed with her too. My sister calls her a HO because of the number of guys she spread her legs to LOL

  2. Thanks for reminding me that I have a blog tour stop of THE OUTSIDE this week 08/30! Holy cats! I really hope Tempt the Stars is good. I need a full story and STOP! No cliffhanger! Have a great week!

    1. I'm so jealous you got THE OUTSIDE! I am itching to read book 1 this week, it'll be my shot of YA

  3. That full frontal...I thought it would be a 'bigger' moment. ;) Haha! Wish the season had been a little more exciting, all in all.

    1. That was an afterthought, I though he was average but I cant believe he did a full frontal. Reports said he didn't carebecause he's Swede or European. Nevertheless I'm happy he did, one less mystery to solve. LOL

      This season was better but its a little lame with the lab experiments and all. I don't like it when they go full sci-fi, I prefer they keep things on the para-fantasy. I'm thinking it might be for the male audience.

  4. I thought that Eric's nude scene was good, but thought it would be bigger. Oh well, can't have everything. The season was okay, but I don't like cliffhangers.... Great haul of books. You convinced me to get the Kingdom series by Marie Hall.


    1. I know what your TBR looks like so I hope you get to read Kingdom soon!

  5. Wow that's a lot of book!! How do you have time to read all that! Oh, I can't believe I missed that part about Eric!! Well, I stopped watching this show last season, but now I want to go back and just see that episode!!

    1. Ning, you should know by now that I HOARD books and I collect a lot of Amazon Freebies. HAHA

      Yes, go back for just the last episode, weigh on on his wiener.

  6. This Side of Forever and Lpve Entangles both look good.

    I quit True Blood early last season b/c it just totally went off the rails for me. Might've been worth another try just to see AS's full frontal,

    Enjoy your books!

    1. HOPE ENTANGLES: Book 1 is FREE. It's really good, grab a copy if you're interested.

  7. The Hallowed Ones is on my TBR list; at that price, I might go grab myself a copy. Funnily enough, I checked out a different YA Amish novel from the library the other day (haven't read one before, either). We must have been on the same wavelength, lol.

  8. I absolutely loved The Hallowed Ones! I highly recommend it! Amish and psychotic vampires. Nuff said.

    1. Shiz! I think I may have to go on a YA streak now!
