Sunday Book Share #123

 
http://www.talksupeblog.com/search/label/Bought%20Borrowed%20and%20Bagged

 I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer; Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea; Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews; and Bought Borrowed and Bagged, hosted by TalkSupe. All of these memes are about sharing the print and digital books received and/or posts and events on the blog.

Good lord but it got cold towards the end of the week. Temps in the daytime were only in the teens (Fahrenheit) but with windchill it was only about 3 degrees. At night temps were in the negative numbers before windchill. Brrrrr! It was a quiet but busy week otherwise with teaching, editing, promoting a blog tour, and reading.

The Week In Review

Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog: Nothing! It was a dull week for search phrases. :(

I won this from the author as part of the release party for her new book, "Wolves' Bane". I also organized a blog tour for her, with a multi-book giveaway, interviews, reviews, excerpts, and guest posts. See the tour schedule here.

Purchased

Between paperbackswap.com and Kindle deals, I had another good week buying books on my wishlist.

  1. I'm freezing and I'm not liking it. I'm not prepared for cold weather and we rarely get super cold weather here so when it happens I kind of go to pieces! I loved your review of The Hexed. The Hillerman is on my TBR. I really enjoyed the Tony Hillerman books so I'm curious as to how she compares. Have a great week!

    1. I grew up in cold weather and I still don't like it, brrrrr.

      It's been so long since I read one of my Tony Hillerman books that so far I'm not making any comparisons.

      Have a great week :)

  3. We've been cold here too, and got hammered with snow. It can go away now. Hope you warm up there- we're supposed to but it will still be cold.

    A Thousand of You looks good, enjoy! :)

    1. It seems most of the continental US got hit with the cold. We got about an inch or so of snow and I can deal with that. :)

      So far A Thousand Pieces of You is good, more YA than I expected.

  4. Great books! We don't have snow in where I live, so I always complain about the heat haha!

  6. It's cold here, too, and looks like it is going to stay that way for another week! Temps in the 30s are going to feel tropical. I have A Thousand Pieces of You. I don't know when I will get to it, but I have seen many, many stellar reviews for it. Right now I am reading Compulsion and liking it quite a bit.

    1. Isn't that sad when 30s feels tropical? Yuck. Well, it is winter. I've also seen some excellent reviews for A Thousand Pieces of You and so far I'm enjoying it.

      Thanks for visiting!

  7. I do love Ruthie Knox's novels in general, but Roman Holiday was a disappointment for me - maybe that's because it was released as a serial, I hope you'll love the whole story in one novel ! Have a great week ;)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh, that's good to know. I love Ruthie's work and I've been looking forward to this one. I'm not a fan of serials though. I did read the first installment but then stopped and waited for the rest. *crosses fingers*

      Have a great week!

  8. I really think when it's this cold we should be allowed not to leave the house until Spring. It was in the negative numbers here also. It's so cold my dog didn't want to go outside, his poor little feet.

    You had a very productive week and got some great books!
    Have a wonderful week Bea! Happy Reading!!!

  11. You got Feed..wahoo I love that trilogy. Stay warm and read about zombies!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Enjoy your new books! I am curious about Feed....and now I must check it out.

    Hope you stay warm...cold is not something we really have here; our summer heat is our claim to "fame."

    I am used to it...so cold might be harder to adjust to.

    Thanks for sharing...and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    1. You just need lots and lots of layers to deal with the cold, and cocoa. :)

      FEED is slow ot start but then it grabs you and next thing you know, you're lost in that world.

  14. You have some great books this week.
    We were actually well below freezing here on the southern coast. Icicles were hanging off my car. Monday we'll be in the 70s again. Yeah for that. Now I just wait for spring.

  29. I haven't read any of those books myself. I heard the Molly Harper one was good, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. (Though I have read her other series and it was entertaining.)
