Sunday Book Share #130

 
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.

Wow, it's the end of February and next weekend we adjust the clocks to spring forward an hour. Dare I hope spring is coming? Then again, tonight we are supposed to get 3-6 inches of snow. Sigh. Oh well. It was a quiet week last week with one bit of sad news - my beta fish Thing Two died. He seemed fine and then suddenly he was dead. He was almost 3 years old which is about average for a beta fish. Yesterday was the end of the Winning at Reading Challenge (remember to link up your reviews!), COYER ends in a few more days and today is the start of the Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge hosted by the Caffeinated Reviewer.

This was a Kindle Daily Deal so I grabbed it meaning I now have the complete series. :)


Review 

I grabbed a whole bunch of kids books at NetGalley but I'm not listing them here. I got several adult books for review and one print children's book for a May blog tour.

  1. I really enjoyed your review for The Lost Empress. It had come up on Amazon recommendations for me and I was really intrigued because of the genealogy. I'm glad to see that it sounds like a good series to try. I hope this is the last bit of snow for you guys and spring decides to come soon. I'm so sorry to hear about your fish but hope next week is better!

  2. Be Afraid looks good..I still may accept it. So sorry about Thing Two, our beta lived a little over 3 years. I suck at challenge updates and will get on that. Stay warm, and no more snow.

  7. Sorry for your loss. I was just thinking of getting my nephew a fish or a turtle. I think I'll get him a turtle instead. He might be too affected if his fish died on him too fast.

  11. I hope this will be the last of your snow for the season, Bea. We're getting freezing rain right now. Luckily, we don't need to go anywhere.

    I'm sorry to hear about Thing Two. We used to have fish and I loved watching them.

    Daredevil Duck has such a cute cover! Enjoy all your books.

  12. I hope Spring is on its way - well, it is - or the earth is in deep do do and has stopped spinning/orbiting and tilting. Sorry about your fish - it is sad to lose any pet at any time.
    More than pancakes made me hungry since I JUST bought some really dark syrup this week.

  13. Nice haul this week! I have only read one Patricia Briggs book, but I really liked it, so I need to go back for the rest.

  14. I'm still looking at Be Afraid. I keep wanting more books and haven't read all of the ones I have. I guess that TBR will never grow smaller.LOL
    I'm starting to watch for spring. When I see that first tiny green bud on one of my Pecan trees, I'll know it's here.

  15. Awwww! That's a bummer about Thing Two. :( We haven't had betas since the kids were little. Enjoy your snow. We got ours this past week and we're supposed to get up to maybe 70º on Weds. Wut da H?! I picked up a freebie this week that made me *giggle snort* and I know you'll get a kick out of it. :D
