Bought, Borrowed, & Bagged ~ #57

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. :)


I spent much of my week taking care of my oldest - she was diagnosed with mono, so we're in for a long ride. Luckily, I had a Kristen Ashley read to escape into whenever I had the chance. ;) How was your week? 

I picked up a few more freebies this week, as well as a 99 cent read. (<-- totally Naomi @Nomi's Paranormal Palace's fault! ;)

Here's what was added to my ereader library this week:

True Colors (The Masks, #1)Take Me (The Untouchables, #1)

*My ONE 99 Cent Buy*
Eyes Turned Skyward

Paradise City (Paradise, #1)

I received both Paradise City via Netgalley for review.

  1. Oh no, mono is a rough one! I hope she recovers quickly, though mono has a tendency to stick around too long :(

    And only one 99 cent purchase! Not bad and its one I was tempted to get too. Enjoy!

    Ahh! Mono! Eep! I never had it personally, but my sister did I think. I just know it's not fun! Hope she feels better soon! Nice reads too! All new to me but I hope you enjoy them all!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. I hate Mono. Never had it personally, but knew a few family members that did. It looks like you had an awesome week. Hope she feels better soon. Lots of rest & water.

  4. I got Take Me a while back but have yet to read it. Maybe you'll get to it before I do. I haven't heard of the other books yet so I'll wait for your reviews!!

  5. True colors sounds like it will be a good one. Have a great week!

  6. Yay for freebies :) They all look good. Mono sounds horrible, I hope she feels better soon! Have a great week :)

  7. Looking forward to your Emma James stop! Have a fab week ahead, Brandi!

  8. I just grabbed my own copy of True Colours, I've had it on my to-read list for a long time, so when I saw in this post it was a freebie I had to snatch a copy. Luckily it was also on Kobo :). It has such a pretty cover.
    I hope you'l enjoy your new books :).

  9. I grabbed True Colors, too! I was so shocked it was free. It was one of those times where it seemed almost too good to be true, lol. I've been wanting to read that for a really long time. I'm sorry to hear about your oldest with mono. Hope she feels better really soon! xx

  10. Huh... Paradise City and Eyes Turned Skyward have the same image on the cover... I knew it looked familiar!
    Anyway... hope you enjoy them, I plan to read Paradise City soon! And I am happy to take the blame for your HUGE spending spree!! lol Have a great week, and I hope your daughter is better soon!

  11. Omigosh, Naomi! I didn't even notice!! Shows how unobservant I was at the time. ;) I'm thinking I'll enjoy both of them though. Yeah, you take the blame, girl. I can't believe you made me spend a whole $1!! ;) I just couldn't pass up that deal since you recommended the story.

    My daughter is feeling a bit better. Her fever is finally down. But she's still weak. She'll get there though. Enjoy your week!

  12. I was shocked too, Jennifer. That's why I snatched it up. :) Sky's feeling a bit better since her fever finally broke. It'll take awhile before she's 100% but she's better. Thanks! Have a great week! <3

  13. Yay! I'm glad I could help you get a book you'd had your eye on. :)

  14. Braine, I'm loving it. I'm at's a good one. :) I hope you enjoy your week, Braine! Staying warm??

  15. Thanks, Zareena! I hope you have a great week as well!

  16. I'm thinking it will be, Brandi. Enjoy your week!

  17. *haha* We'll see, Sharrice. I have a habit of adding books waaaay faster than I read them. :)

  18. Me either, Grace. But I'm glad I didn't. It's not fun at all. But her fever is finally gone, so that's good.

    Enjoy your week!

  19. I'm really glad not to have ever had it as well, Jessica. Thanks and I hope you have a great week!

  20. Yeah, we're into the 3rd week now. Doc says 4-6 before she feels 100% better. Ugh! It's awful because she's so active in school activities. Plus she hates missing her classes.

    I'm trying really, really hard to refrain from buying anything. But sometimes I just can't seem to help myself. ;)

    Have a great week, Berls! Oh, only 63 days til we get to meet! :)

  21. I picked up True Colors just now-thanks :)

  22. Nice haul. Like Naomi, I noticed that two of the books have the same cover image. I see this a bit.
    Anyways... enjoy all your books.
