Bought, Borrowed & Bagged #81

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. 

BB&B is an homage Barron's Books & Baubles from Karen Marie Moning's smash hit series, Fever. 



Bagged
from Authors, Publishers & Tour Companies


Personal Note

This is my last BB&B post this year and it has been an awesome year blogwise. In January, I'm going cold turkey with Grace (Books of Love) and not request Digital RC's in NetGalley & Edelweiss to purge my Kindle Fire with old titles. Fingers crossed I make it!


Be safe guys and celebrate the coming year with much pomp and circumstance (meaning drink lots of alcohol and eat lots of food). See you next year!

  2. I'm looking forward to your Bitter Spirits review!

    I went cold turkey with Netgalley this year. Once I started to really catch up on my BEA/Netgalley/Kindle books I allowed myself two review books a month - more if I managed to read and review them that month. It's working for me and I don't feel so overwhelmed anymore. Good luck!

    1. Yup, one fix I made was line up my reviews for the month that way I won't be feeling "empty" and fight the urge to request or download.

      Delete
  14. Happy new year! I really need to stop requesting books until I catch up on the ones I already have lol. Good luck with doing that! Let me know if you manage and maybe that will help motivate me.

  16. Such a good idea! It's something I've been thinking about and I may join you -- cold turkey on Edelweiss and NetGalley. Can't do it anymore and I can't keep up!
