**Bought, Borrowed, & Bagged ~ #30**


Bought, Borrowed, & Bagged is a weekly meme, hosted by TalkSupe, where I share with you the books I have bought, borrowed, or bagged (gifted or won) plus a recap of the previous week's reviews, upcoming reviews, and any other bookishness I want to share. :)


Here's what was added to my ereader and/or my physical library this week:

BOUGHT
Spin (Songs of Corruption, #1)Red & Wolfe, Part IV (Red & Wolfe, #4)No ApologiesTrust: A New Beginning (Trust Trilogy, #1)Bathing and the Single GirlI Want It That Way (2B Trilogy #1)Rock Chick Reckoning (Rock Chick, #6)

Well, I certainly made up for not one-clicking while I was away. Of course, I'm going to call out a few bloggers because it was totally their fault that I did so much one-clicking! ;) Spin was all on meI picked it up because having finished the Songs of Submission series, I want to read everything CD Reiss has written! I'd actually pre-ordered Red & Wolfe Part 4 and can't wait to complete the series. Naomi @Nomi's Paranormal Palace is responsible for my purchase of No Apologies. Braine @Talk Supe convinced me to one-click Trust: A New Beginning. Andrea @The Bookish Babe twisted my arm so I'd one-click Bathing and the Single Girl. And I pre-ordered I Want It That Way because Lexxie @Unconventional Bookviews said I must. OH, I almost forgot...I also one-clicked Rock Chick Reckoning because it was up next for my buddy read with Robyn @robgirlbooks. I've been reading it this week and I.LOVE.IT!!


BAGGED
A Matter of Grave ConcernBlank-133x176


I received A Matter of Grave Concern and The Heart of Christmas for review :)


And look what arrived from Australia! I won this signed cover image of Lili Saint Germain's Five Miles from Michelle @Novels On the Run. Thanks so much, Michelle! It's gorgeous!!

  4. Hey! Hey! Hey! For TRUST! What Reiss book should I try first? I will have to pick your brains over her books, I know you love her but I'm so picky with my erotica reads esp BDSM. I want something with soul and substance and not just mindless fucking you know...

    1. Yeah, I'm looking forward to Trust, Braine. :) Read Beg first from Reiss' Songs of Submission. Her other series are about the sisters of Jonathan...and you meet them in SoS. I read Kick first, which is #1 Song of Perdition and it didn't hurt. But I think readers should start where Reiss did. And honey, I like my erotica with soul too. Trust me. :)

  5. Do I even need to tell you what I'm most looking forward to from that whole batch, LOL?? Are you guys going to keep up with the KA after you finish the Rock Chick series, do you think? *crosses fingers* *wishes and hopes*

    1. Nope, you do not. Do I need to even tell you how much I loved RC Reckoning? Well, I will anyway...next week. :) And yes, we are absolutely going to keep up with KA after we finish this series. She's amazing and there are so many series yet to read. :)

  8. I love that 'Spin' cover. It's so cool. I read I Want It That Way two days ago but it didn't work for me unfortunately. REALLY hope you enjoy it though--it has such a great cover and premise that's for sure!

    1. I guess I just so badly want to blame one of my one-clicks on your, Naomi. It was actually Lexxie who was at fault. But you know you're on this list for next week! ;)
