Bought, Borrowed & Bagged [173]

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. 

Bought, Borrowed, & Bagged

Still going strong in my "purge". 

Hey guys!

Sorry I've been remiss with my blogger duties. Experiencing some sort of slump-laziness for the past few weeks. It's been a slow progression and I just want to ride it out. I'm still reading, it's the writing up the reviews part that's putting me off atm. So expect a few round-ups and summary posts in the coming weeks. Better that than nothing right?

Happy Sunday!


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. We all go through slumps. I'm going through one at the moment, because I'm not posting as much either, but I need to deal with RL stuff as well. Sometimes we have to take time for ourselves, so don't feel bad. SW, take time for you every once in a while.

    1. Funny you mentioned it. I used to feel guilty, but now that I've been doing this for 4.5 years, I realize the importance of vacations, even if it's virtual like this.

      Thanks, SW

  2. Sorry you're going through a slump. Those are the worst! I'm excited to see what you come up with for Something Wicked. I always have fun with those every year.
    Happy reading!

    1. Glad to have you participate. Thought I'd help out Heidi since she also got busy with RL stuff. It's been fun! I just wished I had more events. Unfortunately my October's been booked since August :(

  3. We all go through slumps. I go through them all the time where I just don't feel like writing much.

  4. Lots of bloggers going through slumps right now. Don't push and don't stress, your mojo will come back. Writing reviews can be a struggle for sure.

    Happy reading and have a good week!

    1. Thanks for the words of encouragement, Bea. Have a good week!

  5. Going through a slump myself, pretty sure mine has something to do with the baby turning into a hyperactive toddler lol! Just don't have much free time right now :) I still want to though, so I'm going to post when I can and that will have to be enough for now.

    Hope you had a lovely weekend!

    1. Oh lawd, I don't envy you! They can zap your energy quick. Like 12 hours with them kids feels like 24 hours of no-sleep!

  6. Don't force yourself. Your mind tells you it needs a break :) I had several this year. Just was too busy and tired to write reviews.

    1. Yeah I'll probably be doing quickies and stuff.

  7. I just haven't had the time lately, but I'm kind of feeling the same way. I do hope you'll get over yours soon, and I wish you luck on your continuing purging.

    1. Thanks, Joy, I guess the slump is helping it. I have zero appetite for more books of late.

  8. Great post dear! Have a wonderful weekend:)

  9. Definitely a lot of people going through slumps right now. When I do I resort to binge watching TV LOL, but in all honesty, it does help. ;)

    1. I've been doing a lot of that. Must be the changing season :)

  10. This month has been a slump for me too. Been doing some re reading more than usual. But I think I am back on track. But it tends to happen usually before the cold weather hits. Have no idea why.

  11. I'm loving the Something Wicked Rises event. It's so fun!! :)

    Sorry you're in a slump. :( Those are always tough. I just realized I was in one myself a few weeks ago, but I'm coming out of it now and ready to read ALL THE BOOKS again! Hope you get out of your slump soon too. :)

  12. Going through a slump myself. I absolutely can't stand it but unless there's a cure somewhere its going to happen again :/
    Looking forward to your upcoming reviews :) and thanks for the awesome giveaways ;)

  13. I hope it gets better! Try something new

  14. It sucks to be in a slump, Braine! But I think you're right to just ride it out, so that you don't get completely burned out by blogging. I miss you, but I completely understand.
    I hope you'll have a wonderful week.
    Lexxie @ (un)Conventional Bookviews

  15. Good luck for everything! Have a nice week lady!

  16. I've been feeling pretty lazy too lately. Maybe it's the season change or something... Get better soon ;)

  17. You are doing good with your clean out. And bummer about the review slump, but at least you're reading. I get in the mood where I don't want to stop and write up a book or I feel like I have absolutely nothing to add about it. Hope your mojo returns soon.

  18. Yay for reading at least! Hope you get your blogging vibes back soon!

  19. Ride that lazy slump wave out. lol. We all go through them, hope yours passes soon.

  20. Ugh. I hate when I get in those slumps of not wanting to do reviews. They feel like terrible chores then. Hope you get past it soon. :) Have a great week!

  21. One book this week! That is awesome!
