**Bought, Borrowed, & Bagged ~ #28**

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:

Drive Me Crazy (Holland Springs, #1)Eleanor & ParkSleep No More (Charlotte Westing Chronicles, #1)The Vampire Voss (Regency Draculia #1)Kingdom Series Collection: Books 1-3 (Kingdom, #1-3)Rocky Mountain Heat (Six Pack Ranch, #1)Moments of Julian (The McCain Saga, #1)Forbidden (The Arotas Trilogy, #1)

I one-clicked Drive Me Crazy thanks to Andrea @The Bookish Babe. She shared Ms. Valentine's latest in the Holland Springs series and I just could resist the temptation anymore. :) And because I went to The Tattered Cover for a signing with Maggie Stiefvater, I picked up Eleanor & Park, Sleep No More, and The Vampire Voss. Someone keep me out of the bookstore! ;) And because I need more books on my ereader (like a hole in the head), I one-clicked Marie Hall's Kingdom Series Collection 1-3 as a *freebie*. I also one-clicked Rocky Mountain Heat, Moments of Julian, and Forbidden as *freebies*.

His Wicked Games: Boxed Set (His Wicked Games, #1-2)Breathe, Annie, Breathe
I won His Wicked Games Boxed Set from Ember Casey in a giveaway from Clarissa Wild. I won Breathe, Annie, Breathe, in a giveaway via COYER from Berls @Fantasy is More Fun and Michelle @Because Reading is Better Than Real Life. 

And I wanted to share some of the swag I won as well. I received the hair clip and bookmarks from Heather Hildenbrand and Braine @Talk Supe. 

I won various swag from Teresa @Readers Live 1000 Lives.

I picked up this tour swag from Maggie Stiefvater...she drew/designed a cover for Sinner. :)

And one of my fellow Hussies (members of JA Huss' Street Team) sent this awesome Shrike Bikes sticker! Thanks, Jana!

Jax reviews Paperboy by Vince Vawter
Sky reviews The Book Thief by Markus Zusak


  1. Wow! What a great haul this week! Thank you for sharing!!!

  2. I hope you like Drive Me Crazy. That's a great series. I listened to my first Rainbow Rowell book, Attachments, and am dying for more! I can't wait to see what you think of Eleanor and Park.
    I hope you enjoy all your books, Brandee!

    1. The gal at the register recommended Attachments when I was purchasing Eleanor & Park. I'm looking forward to reading it and I'm eager to read Attachments after seeing you loved it. Thanks, Andrea!

  3. I love the Shrike Bikes sticker! The boys would be bugging the heck out of me if I wore that hair clip. I can just see them chasing me like wild cats. What a great haul this week!

    1. LOL My cats are rather fond of the feathers. ;) I'm proud of the sticker...I love Shrike Bikes. :)

  4. OMG I love the hair thingy!!!! So happy you got it before she left for Guam. Enjoy them all, Brandee!

    1. It's so pretty, Braine! I'm not very girly and don't usually wear stuff in my hair, but I like this one!

  5. Nice haul, Brandee. And not just books. You won some swag too. Lucky you.
    Thanks for sharing. Hope you're having a great week.

    1. Thanks, Marilyn. Yep, I've been very lucky lately. :) Hope your week is going well!

  6. Great haul! I'm particularly interested in your thoughts on Eleanor & Park and the Kenneally.<-----I just found out she's from Franklin, which is right next to Nashville (which is where this girl is from). Happy reading, Brandee!

    1. I'm looking forward to reading both...and them all. Just gotta find time. ;) That's neat Kenneally is from near your hometown. That always adds something to a read, doncha think?


Now you know what I think...what are your thoughts??
