**Bought, Borrowed, & Bagged ~ #8**

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 my physical library, this week:

In Bloom (The Brightside, #1)Shark Bait (Grab Your Pole, #1)Forever & Always (The Ever Trilogy, #1)

I picked up In Bloom after reading Jennifer @Donnie Darko Girl's review of it. :) I picked up Shark Bait because Andrea @The Bookish Babe raved about it and it was a freebie - or 99 cents, I can't remember. And I picked up Forever & Always as a freebie because it's Jasinda Wilder! :)  

Love on Mimosa LaneSolving for ExDelilah Dusticle's Transylvanian Adventure (Delilah Dusticle, #2)Best Kind of Broken (Finding Fate, #1)

I received Love on Mimosa Lane, Delilah Dusticle's Transylvanian Adventure and Best Kind of Broken for review. And I won a signed ARC of Solving for Ex from Jessica @Lovin Los Libros.

I think I may have mentioned before that I collect bookmarks. I grab one any time I see one. I make them, too. (I'll share a photo of some I've made next week.) I started collecting them from places we travel too as well. It's what I always get for my souvenir collection. I figure it makes sense since we travel to places based on books. Yes, I'm that nerdy. ;) And my hubby loves me so much he allows me to plan our vacations around places I want to visit because I read about them. :)'s a list:

Savannah, Georgia - Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
North Carolina - Cold Mountain
Lake Quinault - Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood
Seattle - Georgina Kincaid Series

Here are a few of the bookmarks I've collected:


  1. Ooh, nice haul! I haven't read any of those but happy reading!

  2. Oh that's cool! About the bookmark collection! And what a wonderful hubby you have that goes along with it! A vacation's a vacation anyway! Went to Savannah myself last year and it was pretty awesome! Hot, like really really hot and hotter than St. Louis, but still very nice to be somewhere different and with so much history! Love going to new places!

    Great reads too! They're all new to me but I hope you enjoy them all!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Those booksmarks are so cool!

    Hey, I have some spare swag bookmarks here, email or DM (Twitter) me your addy and I'll send you a few if you like. It's not as fancy as what you collect though

    1. Thanks, Braine! And thanks for offering to share some! My nice ones are only from my trips. When I share a pic of the ones I've made, I'll add in a pic of the bookmark basket. :)

  4. Oh I love that you collect bookmarks and make plans around books you've read. I have tons of bookmarks I should send you.
    I hope you love Shark Bait as much as I did!

    1. It's a lot of fun, Andrea! And I'm lucky my hubs goes along with it! :) I'll happily accept any bookmarks, my dear! And I just know I'm gonna love Shark Bait!

  5. I received Best Kind of Broken for review as well. Super excited. I really want to read Solving for Ex so I will so be on the lookout for your review! I am so liking your bookmarks! They're adorable! I hope you enjoy your books! How about this, if you haven't already gotten a copy I will happily gift you a copy of The Arrangement #1?

    1. I can't wait to chat over Best Kind of Broken and Solving for Ex, Reese! I'm glad you like my bookmarks. :)

      You are too sweet! I'll let you gift me The Arrangement #1 if you'll let me gift something to you. Anything you've seen here you wanna read?!? :)

  6. Oh yay! You got Solving for Ex! I'm so glad! I hope you love it as much as I did! :D I also have Best Kind of Broken for review and I'm really looking forward to getting to that one! Enjoy all your new reads Brandee! :D

    1. Darn - I meant to email you to let you know it arrived. :) Thanks so much, Jessica! I can't wait to read it. AND I didn't realize I was getting swag too. I was so excited! *haha* Ooh, I can't wait to chat about Best Kind of Broken with you too! Thanks!
