Bought, Borrowed & Bagged [211]: Superheroes & American Gods

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

Obviously I'm taking dating seriously. I stumbled upon Matthew Hussey's YouTube videos and not only is he cute with a gorgeous accent, his POV makes sense. So I thought I'd give his book a try. Thankfully my local library has an audio version and I'm currently listening to it. I'm only a few chapters in and I'm loving it because it's not just about relationships, he has transformative tips on how to come out of one's shell and be more sociable, etc. Review will come soon!


Big & Small
I don't usually follow ComicCon, but this week the event released a LOT of exciting movie trailers from Wonder Woman, Doctor Strange, and Justice League, to name a few. We're flooded with superhero series that will soon hit the theaters, the boob tube, and my favorite place to be, Netflix. Come Halloween, I'm sure the streets will be littered by heroes and villains alike so if you want to stand-out this year or win that Best Costume trophy, maybe don't be a DC or Marvel character?

And perhaps what I'm super curious about is AMERICAN GODS, a new series coming to Starz  in 2017 based on Neil Gaiman's bestselling novel. It's certainly not on-trend, but going against the grain can be good. Have you read the novel? What did you think of it?

  1. I have not read American Gods. Sometimes going against the grain is a good thing. I see that you got two interesting books. I hope you love all of your new books this week.

  2. Comic Con has been super lovely to us this year, so many fab trailers. I'm not one to watch trailers for something I'm likely to watch tho so I've not actually seen any of this dope stuff yet :D

    Enjoy your dating stuff and I look forward to that review :)

  3. Those are totally new to me ones! Hope you enjoy them all!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

  4. I'm going to tune in to AG and see if I like it. Aren't all the movie trailers awesome?!!

  5. Hey! That's Lincoln from The 100 on AG. Nice! I'm definitely checking that out. Not because of the guy, it actually looks really good.

  6. I have not read American Gods but wow that looked intense. Think I'll need to check it out now.

  7. I have no need for dating advice but that first book sounds good. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

    American Gods looks trippy lol

  8. Get the Guy looks like it will be a fun read. Going against the grain and deviating from the herd can definitely be a good thing. :-)

  9. Glad to hear you're enjoying the audiobook you got so far! I am curious about that Charlotte Holmes book, have you read the first one? How was it?

  10. Comic Con always looks like such a blast; I'd love to be able to just check out all of the cool stuff for sale. I'm eager for your review of Get the Guy; I could definitely use some tips on how to be more sociable, lol!

  11. I still need to check out all these trailers from Comic Con. I haven't read American Gods but I really do want too, and I'm so curious about the show because I think Ricky Whittle is fantastic. I don't have the channel though, so who knows when I'll see it? haha


  12. This has been a big superhero few years that has passed. Excited to see all the Halloween costumes.

  13. Hope you find Get the Guy helpful :)

  14. I've been checking out all the Super Hero trailers. WOW so many that look good.

  15. Oh! Now that you mention it, I do remember hearing American Gods was going to get it's own series. Ha. Thanks for reminding me. :)

    Have a great week!

  16. I downloaded THE LAST OF AUGUST too! Can’t wait to read that one...and I need to check out American Gods! Everyone’s been talking about it. Happy reading/TV watching!
