BOUGHT BORROWED & BAGGED # 1 - MAILBOX 2014 & THE SUNDAY POST # 1

BOUGHT BORROWED & BAGGED # 1



My matey over at TALK SUPE has a weekly meme which you can join where you show what you have got to read or you may have won. I decided for 2014 I shall join in and plop myself on the linky. 

Maybe not every week, depends if I have anything to show.

BB& B is in homage to Barron's Books & Baubles from Karen Marie Moning's - Fever series.




Ok, so I also decided to visit Kimba over at Caffeinated Book Reviewer  and plop onto her linky too. She has the Sunday Post.

So without further ado, here is what landed in my mailbox, I got from the library or my kindle or I won or I bought.

    1. I love graphic novels now. They are very cool and an enormous amount of work goes into them. I love it when they are color pages from start to finish. Soulless has 98% black and white pages, which can make it a little harder to read I find and absorb the images. I like colour to distinguish the characters better in Soulless but I understand it would cost a lot more to produce if all colour. I did laugh out loud cause Lord Maccon is in the nuddy after his binging on that chemical, can't spell it and they put little squares to fog out his doody.LOL!! Priceless!

  5. OOOh awesome haul!!! Yay for Shadow Kissed! That graphic novel series is in danger of ending due to low sales! Scary stuff, because Shadow Kissed had that helluva cliffhanger!! Eep!

    I still need to read Soulless Vol 3 in the graphic novel series myself!

    Awesome haul! Hope you enjoy all of these that you haven't already read yet! ;)

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. Hi Jessica, I did see that about Shadow Kissed graphic novel. I can see how much work went into it, so if sales aren't up then I can see why they wouldn't go on. I do hope sales improve as it is a brilliant graphic novel.
