Bought, Borrowed & Bagged #148: On Demand Shows

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. 


from publishers & authors

Big & Small

I started watching random shows in between books. Here's what's on my boob tube:

ALLEGIANCE (NBC | On Demand | 11E 43 mins.): It's a spy show, CIA v Russians. Super awesome conflict, the parents used to be Russian spies, they're now back in the game to counter their son who's working for the CIA. 

MANHATTAN LOVE AFFAIR (ABC | On Demand | 11E 25 mins.): A romance sitcom, playboy New Yorker falls for a straight-laced book editor fresh in Manhattan. Lots of feel good moments, great comedy breaks, perfect Summer fling.

Last Week's Reviews

It's a new year and there's a new linky for my humble weekly recap meme. Whether you're a return participant or a new hopper, THANK YOU for joining, your participation is much appreciated. 

Also as this is a laid-back meme, please use your LABEL OR TAG LINKS and not your post links that way you don't have to update your linky every week. 


  1. Awake looks really good, can't wait to see your thoughts on that one. Happy reading!

  2. I have to take a look at allegiance

  3. Nice! Those are new to me reads! Hope you enjoy them both!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

  4. Your new books look really good, Braine! And I think that Allegiance is a show I'd enjoy, too. I don't know what it is with spies, but I think it's the added mystery of never knowing whom can be trusted, and what they will find out in their inquiries.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  5. Ooo the cafe read looks good. Happy reading this week :D

  6. Hmm new books to me there, I hope you'll enjoy them. Happy reading!

  7. I love On-Demand. It help me stay up to date on Revenge and other shows that I don't watch. It looks like you got some interesting books.

  8. My DVR is about to run out of room with all of the stuff I've recorded lately but haven't had time to watch, including Wolf Hall. lol. I will let the girls know about Manhattan Love Affair because they're into rom-coms. Have a great week, Braine! :D

  9. Happy Reading and glad to see you picked up a couple new programs to watch. Fell in love with Allegiance, and can't wait to see how it all ends. Hugs...

  10. Awake looks yummy. I've been watching some shows too, I confess. Last Sons of Anarchy season, which was screaming for my attention :) Also, first season of Salem. I cried like a baby at the end of SOA, because, well, Jax. And Salem was pretty good, though not as good as it could've been. Great acting though... Enjoy your Sunday, Braine!

  11. Awake sounds like it will be a good one, hope you enjoy and have a great week!

  12. I haven't heard of either of those tv shows. Must investigate…

  15. I haven't heard of those tv shows so I might have to check them out. Enjoy your new books they look good! Have a great week.

  16. Oooh Manhattan Love Affair sounds great. I love romantic comedy shows so I'll have to see if it's on Amazon of NetGalley. I also received AWAKE and I can't wait to read it. Thanks for sharing!

  17. So. Still not getting updates from you. :( I guess I have to make special trips. No worries. i'll try and try again.

    Happy reading, B!

  18. I'm glad you're mixing it up with reads and tv, Braine! My time is being split on end-of-year band stuff right now. :) I like the looks of your Lucado book - I heard him speak once. He's a good public speaker as well as an author. Hope you have a great week, girlie!

  19. I don't watch a lot of tv, but I sit and read while my hubby does. Nice snuggle time for us.

  20. I love the cover for Awake, it looks interesting! Thanks for the rundown on TV shows, I've recently acquired Netflix and always looking for more recs. Have a lovely week ahead!
