Bought, Borrowed & Bagged [206]: #PennyDreadful #DoctorThorne

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

Big & Small
I am absolutely heartbroken that Penny Dreadful is over! WTH is that ending?! Damn it, they have to bring it back! And if you're not caught up, I'm sorry for the spoiler.

And as I love period pieces, Julan Fellowes, the dude who gave us Downton Abbey, is primiering a new historical series via Amazon Prime, Doctor Thorne, based on the book of the same title by Anthony Trollope. I am very curious if it's going to be as addictive as Downton Abbey. Has any of you seen it? Feedback?

  1. I watched that last episode of Penny Dreadful and was like...wth? I didn't even know the series was ending! I quickly went online and found out that was the last episode even though I kinda figured that but I was really hoping she was gonna come back as a vampire or something. Damn...

  2. I'm very curious about Dr. Thorne, so if you watch it, let us know how it is!
    A Perilous Undertaking has such a pretty cover! I hope the inside is just as great.
    Happy reading and have a great week! :)

  3. I'm curious about Doctor Thorne- will have to check it out. Definitely looking for something to fill the upcoming void left by GoT wrapping up for the season.

  4. I did see Thorne, it was like ...4 eps? only

  5. I saw A Perilous Undertaking on NG. Hope I get picked for it, too. :)

  6. I'll have to look up Dr. Thorne. I never watched DA ... always looked boring to me. Maybe one day I'll check it out. Enjoy your new books!

  7. I haven't been watching anything on Netflix. I think I should cancel it now. But I don't want to miss House of Cards. Bah.

  8. I'll have to check out Doctor Thorne! Though I still need to finish Downton Abbey!!

  9. Fun cover for the Raybourn. I have one of hers I think that's on my want to read list.

  10. I need The Possessions just for the cover, lol

  11. I haven't watched Penny Dreadful but I'm sorry to hear it's ending already! It always looked like a great show.


  12. I loved Doctor Thorne! I thought it was a little more comedic than Downtown Abbey too for what that's worth.

  13. I haven't watched Penny Dreadful before, will have to look into it.
    Love the cover on The Possessions.

  14. I hope you enjoy your new books and have had a good week. I've not caught up with Penny Dreadful, I'm halfway through S2 I think... I'm scared

  15. I haven't heard of Penny Dreadful but a shame that the ending was kind of meh! Have a lovely week ahead Braine!
