Bought, Borrowed & Bagged [216]: Riverdale #Archie

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. 

I hope everyone had a great long weekend!

Big & Small
I read a lot of Archie Comics back in the day, I was Team Betty and found the whole gang hilarious! CW is apparently adapting the series entitled Riverdale, but it's dark and angsty:

The series is officially described as follows:

“As a new school year begins, the town of Riverdale is reeling from the recent, tragic death of high school golden boy Jason Blossom — and nothing feels the same… Archie Andrews is still the all-American teen, but the summer’s events made him realize that he wants to pursue a career in music — not follow in his dad’s footsteps—despite the sudden end of his forbidden relationship with Riverdale’s young music teacher, Ms. Grundy. Which means Archie doesn’t have anyone who will mentor him — certainly not singer Josie McCoy, who is only focused on her band, the soon-to-be-world-famous Pussycats. It’s all weighing heavily on Archie’s mind — as is his fractured friendship with budding writer and fellow classmate Jughead Jones. Meanwhile, girl-next-door Betty Cooper is anxious to see her crush Archie after being away all summer, but she’s not quite ready to reveal her true feelings to him. And Betty’s nerves – which are hardly soothed by her overbearing mother Alice aren’t the only thing holding her back. When a new student, Veronica Lodge, arrives in town from New York with her mother Hermione, there’s an undeniable spark between her and Archie, even though Veronica doesn’t want to risk her new friendship with Betty by making a play for Archie. And then there’s Cheryl Blossom… Riverdale’s Queen Bee is happy to stir up trouble amongst Archie, Betty, and Veronica, but Cheryl is keeping secrets of her own. What, exactly, is she hiding about the mysterious death of her twin brother, Jason? Riverdale may look like a quiet, sleepy town, but there are dangers in the shadows… “

The Riverdale cast includes KJ Apa as Archie Andrews, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge, Ashleigh Murray as Josie McCoy, Luke Perry as Fred Andrews, Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones, Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom, Sarah Habel as Ms. Grundy, Ross Butler as Reggie Mantle, Casey Cott as Kevin Keller, M├Ądchen Amick as Alice Cooper, and Marisol Nichols as Hermione Lodge.

  1. I can't remember who was who but I liked the not so nice one

  2. I've not heard of either of the new books you procured. And I find it interesting the CW is taking a darker, angstier approach to Riverdale. Hmm...
    I hope YOU had a lovely long weekend, Braine! I certainly did! <3

  3. I've requested the first book from Amanda Bouchet on audio. I can't wait to try it. I hope you had a great long weekend. :-)

  4. I snagged Breath of Fire, too. :)

    I loved Archie comics when I was a kid and I would probably watch some of this Riverdale out of curiosity, but I think I'd miss the tone of the original.

  5. I wish it was still the weekend :(

  6. this should be a intresting twist on the Archie comics

  7. I'm not sure what to think about an angsty Archie and the gang, lol. I loved reading the comics when I was a kid, and that's probably the image I'll always have of the characters.

  8. They're remaking everything (but dark) these days!

  9. Archie... I remember reading those in the newspaper too. :)
