Bought, Borrowed & Bagged [161]: Movie and TV Bits


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.

Big & Small

  • There might be more seasons of Game of Thrones and the producers, with Martin, are in talks of maybe a prequel. I sure would like to know mroe about the legendary Targaryens and their dragons. Also, there's no hope that Jon Snow is coming back *sad face*.
  • The Walking Dead S6 promises to have more walkers this coming season. 650 zombies will be coming after Rick and the others. Looking at the stills, the team is getting creative with the undead. Whoa! I guess they'll never be able to scrub off the stench of decay in their skins. 
  • I'm not excited that Channing Tatum is The Gambit. I mean he's hot, but I really can't see him pulling it off, accent and all. I wish they'd just get Taylor Kitsch back!
  • Finally, who else is excited for Deadpool? That said, any news if Tyrese is going to be the new Green Lantern?

Recap

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. I'm so sad that Jon Stark is not coming back to GOT. He was my imaginary husband...Rebel Queen looks awesome. I got Conquering Dark a while back, Fated has an awesome character.

  8. O. M. G.!! You got The Queen??? I'm still waiting for Netgalley to let me know, and I'm so excited to read more about Søren, Nora and King I am almost giddy... I can hardly see that you got other books Braine. Enjoy!
    Have a great week ahead and happy reading.

  9. I'm still really skeptical that Jon Snow is really gone because Kit Harington has been spotted in Belfast, one of the filming locations. Plus he's still sporting the Jon Snow hair, lol. And also, I'm in a huge amount of denial that the character has well and truly departed.

    1. Same here... maybe he misses them? Did he come back in the books?

  11. Jax will be excited to read The Queen; she loves those books.

    I think Tatum can do Gambit though the accent might be tricky.

    1. We'll see. I'm not totally sold. He's got the name to sell it plus he's a producer too. Just unsure about the acting.

  12. I'm so not happy with Magic Mike playing Gambit, like seriously why couldn't they get the other dude to reprise the role? Plus Magic Mike is not that cute to me. I didn't know Tyrese and the next Green Lantern...that would be interesting. Cannot wait for the Walking Dead, looks like its going to be a Rick & Morgan showdown.

  13. Fated looks like a great read. Hope you enjoy and have a great upcoming week

  14. I thought I read somewhere recently that Tatum was no longer going to play Gambit. Which I think is a good idea. I'm not even invested in the character and the little bit that I do know of him, Tatum is not it. What was so wrong with the other guy that played Gambit? I thought he was pretty good.

    1. Right?! And Gambit isn't bulky, he's lean and suave, nothing like Magic Mike. And the accent! It's all about the accent for me.

  15. I actually watched the movie of If I Stay this week Braine... Just thought I'd share! I cried my eyes out like 4 times! lol
    Hope you enjoy your new reads!

  16. I need to listen to Succubus on Top soon. And you got some great review book, especially Darken the Sky. I can't wait for TWD to start! And Fear TWD looks like it's going to be good too.

    1. I'm on the fence about Fear, spin-offs are hit or miss for me mostly. We'll see.

  17. YESSS i am definitely excited about the Walking Dead, Gambit and Deadpool! Man i don't know how Channing Tatum would go, I haven't seen him in a movie before but I don't mind staring at him more ;) hehehe

    1. Hahaha, I have to give him that. Tatum does make for great eye candy.

  18. Ooooo wow, looks like you got tons of great books! ALSO, super excited about Game of Thrones!! NEED MORE SEASONS. And apparently Kit Harrington was spotted where they were filming the new season so FINGERS CROSSED. Excited about Tatum as Gambit! That could be interesting. Looking forward to Deadpool too! I need to start TWD, though–my sister and brother love it. Hope you have a great week :D
