Bought, Borrowed & Bagged (50)

BB&B (Bought, Borrowed and Bagged) is a weekly meme hosted by Braine and Debbie @ Talk Supe 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 and The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news; a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. As you can see I’ve decided to link on another weekly haul/wrap up meme because I’d like to start visiting some new blogs on the atmosphere and I find meme’s are the best way to do so!

– Bought –
xkcd by Randall Munroe, Signal to Noise by Neil Gaiman, The Poison Eaters by Holly Black and Machine of Death by Ryan North
Remember when I bought the humble bundle ebook #2 lot? Yeah well they added these four books to the bundle so I automatically got them. That means I paid like $7 for 10 eBooks and some of that went to charity.

– Bagged –

These are both for book tours, in September!

Catalyst by Jennifer Synder, Awakening Foster Kelly by Cara Rosalie Olsen and The Wizard Tales Vol I – III by Red Tash

I almost forgot to post this due to the excitement of the announcement of the 12th Doctor, ahhhhh! I’m so excited to see how he portrays him. Anyway, I’m also in the middle of a read-a-thon which is going pretty well considering I like my sleep far too much! Two giveaways still happening so its worth checking those out as they’ll have ended before my next BB&B. I read Gone Girl with Kimba which was great fun, we were lucky the book was so … well you know … we had loads to talk about! :D

Yikes I read a lot whilst I was on holiday, and I had a really great time. I’ll include a few of my holiday photos below too and I didn’t tan the slightest because I spent all my time in the shade and when I ventured out I was wearing factor 50!

News from Lauren:

As you can see I’ve done a fair bit of reading lately, I just can’t seem to help picking up lots of new books at once for some reason, but I’ve had a pretty nice fortnight well apart from my computer blowing up on me! I’m also off on holiday on Friday so other than the few posts I’ve got queued there wont be much happening and I hope you have a good week! Happy reading. Oh and as you can see I broke my book buying ban for those 6 ebooks but as I got them all for about $9 and some of the money went to charity I think thats okay!

News from Lauren:

Okay so it’s pretty much official now, I have far too much time on my hands now I’m not in college. I’ve even volunteered helping to garden, I really dislike gardening because I hate my hands getting dirty. I go on holiday in a few weeks too which will be a nice trip abroad too and I intend to do a lot of poolside reading! I also un-tagged all my posts here and re-tagged them so its a much neater and easier to navigate and at some point I’ll be getting a new custom made design implemented but I’ll let you know more about next time around hopefully. I’m posting a day early this week because I have another two posts going up tomorrow! Other than that I have very little to report so I’m going to provide you with a few events I’ve been invited too on Goodreads that you may be interested in:

Talk Supe 2nd Blogoversary eBook Giveaway – Ends 30th June

Hello guys! So I’m back for good now, I’ve used this catch up on all books I’ve grabbed since April and share any posts that haven’t been linked up too. Apologies for all my absences but I officially finish college tomorrow so I’m back on my feet here and looking forward to returning to my blogging routine. I’ve also adopted a slight change to my posting for the time being, for now Wishlist Wednesday and Bought, Borrowed and Bagged will be fortnightly posts as I’m on a book buying ban it seems pointless for it to be weekly for now. Hope everyone is having a good time!

Okay so good news, I’ve finally kicked myself out of my reading slump and I only have one University interview left. On top of this I have a conditional offer at the one I wish to attend so that’s a lot of my plate. Though I do now have to make sure I pass my current course, which we started the final major project today! I’m pretty excited because it’s completely self-directed. I hope to catch up on my outstanding reviews during this time, stay on top of any reviews after that and be as active as I can be. I’m already in the process of standing down from some other commitments I have that take up far too much of my free time, I hope that turns out okay.
Nia will be back posting soon too :D
