Bought, Borrowed & Bagged [227]: Hello 2017!

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, ongoing 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 realized it's been a month since I posted one as my book haul is slow, yay! My apptetite to hoard has been curbed and I'm hoping 2017 will be the year that my TBR and I will be (finally) in a healthy symbiosis. 

And my sissy from another missy gifted me this. Thanks Lee (Rally The Readers)!

Big & Small

Who needs fiction when you have Trump as your president?! Let's be honest, (sadly) there IS some entertainment factor involved, his tweets alone is sure to ellicit some response from you. Don't even get me started with his cabinet nominees, my favorite has to be Betsy DeVos. OI! is the word!

That said, I can't wait for John Oliver to come back and start commentating on our country's current state of politics. Whether you agree with his views or not, you have to admit, his sketches are funny if anything...



  1. Awesome haul of books this week SW. I'm glad that you are back.

  2. My sister gifted me a few books recently so I've got to get to those. My mom and I got her a kindle a year ago and she has all but caught up to me in terms of hoarding books. Her credit card is STILL smoking from her last shopping spree.

    Don't get me started on politics. Lol, my blood pressure can't handle it.

  3. yes who needs fiction these days when there is a president like that

  4. That is a good thing that you are happy where your TBR Pile is these days. You got some good ones in this haul.

  5. Ooh nice! Some new to me ones there! I keep debating about Gail's latest novella series! Can't wait for your thoughts to help my decision making! LOL!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

  6. I have the Lizzy book as well, I'm curious to read more. happy reading!

  7. Great book haul. I can only hope that one of Trump's advisers tells him to curb the Twitter rants.

  8. Lovely book haul. I'm working on reading TBR books this year. Have a great weekend.

  9. Ohhhh Wild Ride looks awesome. Happy reading!

  10. I watched Trevor Noah last night and he definitely made me laugh over the awfulness of Trump being president. I wish I had HBO. I love John Oliver.


  11. oh great group of books. I am looking forward to Wild Ride and Between The Devil and Duke.Hope you enjoy them.

  12. Good to have you back and feeling good. :-)

  13. Between the Duke and the Devil. Ahh! I need to start that this week :D

  14. Aw man. I'm so looking forward to Last Week Tonight. If there's anyone who can trounce Trump, it's John Oliver. Can't wait!

  15. I wish you luck in creating balance with your tbr, Braine. ;) And I wish I had HBO so I could watch John Oliver - I'd make some time for t.v. for that. ;)

  16. Hope you enjoy Poison or Protect! ♥ It was one of my favorite reads last year. I can't wait for Carriger's next novella; they've been a lot of fun so far!

  17. Great haul. Happy reading and have a great weekend.

    Best wishes

  18. I can't wait for John Oliver to come back on the air. I've been watching Sam Bee and Trevor Noah. They are keeping me up on everything. I've also started watching a segment on Seth Meyer's show. I can't remember the shows exact name, but it is a late, late show somewhere. i watch his "A Closer Look" segments on YouTube. They are pretty good too.

    Hope you have a great week ahead.

  20. I hope these books are all super great + make up for America being in such a state rn (I mean I know they wont fix it but at least distract u for a bit)

  21. Nice haul girl. Good to see spending has been minimal!
    Yes, Trump sure knows how to entertain us with his tweets!
