On a Personal Note:

This week was a pretty laid back week. I got to get some reading done, do the usual chores around the home and stop by some of my favorite blogs to see what is happening in the blogger world. I was hoping to get some reviews written this weekend, but that fell through on Friday when my husband comes home and says we are going on vacation next week. I go What! Wait! You said we are do your work retreat vacation the last week in August. He said yes, so I go that’s not next week. He thinks about it and then tells me he told me the wrong week. <face palm> So I had planed to not have anything going on the last week in August since where we are going the internet will be very limited. Well that plan went up in FLAMES! ^_^ As you can see I have several things schedule for this week. I hope everyone will drop by and check out the fabulous Guest Post, Character & Author Interview. I will try to get on and check in. I hope everyone has a great week. I know I will.

Bought, Borrowed, Bagged


BB&B is a weekly meme, inspired by Talk Supe Pop Culture Junkie, where we share with you the books that we have bought, borrowed, bagged (Won or Gifted) and more. 



I was not as good as last week. I ended up One-Clicking Her Dragon To Slay on sale $.99c. I love dragon’s and well I could not resist! <bad girl> 

I also ended up borrowing from the library for my eReader: Branded (The Cavanaugh Brothers #1) by Laura Wright & Tangle of Need (Psy-Changling #11) by Nalini Singh.

I finally read this week Quicksilver Dreams, Devil’s Game, & Red. I’m pretty proud that I got through some books I’ve had on my TBR Pile for a while now.

Happy Reading Everyone!

  1. Oh you got Red! I hope you read it soon and end up liking it!

    • Hi Braine,
      I’m just now playing catch up on replaying. I did get around to reading Red. It was an ok read! Did not wow me. I’ll be posting my review next month. I’m hoping for a little more in the next book in the series. I like to give a book series a three book try before I say nah!
      I’m still on vacation it’s going long then planned wont be back until Wed the 27, so I have more time to do more reading. I’m loving all the free read time and family time.

  2. Oh those husbands and the lack of calendar and scheduling technique!

    • Oh Ya got to love our husbands! We are still on vacation. Looks like it is going to be a little long then planned, but I can’t fault anyone on that. We are having a great time, plus it gives me more reading time. Thank’s for stoping in Missie!

  3. I think I’d have hives if dates got changed around on me like that! Spontaneous I am not! Hopefully you get everything you want accomplished before you go. Have a great and relaxing week! And just think you have the last week in August already taken care of!

    • Hi Katherine, Oh I was freaking out for a bite when he told me. I had this whole week planed with the blog and getting ready to go and then Surprise it’s this week. I hope to have a great relaxing week! Thank you for stoping by. ^_^

  4. So surprise vacation?! Sounds exciting. XD lol! I always like to know when my holidays are coming or I tend to freak out. But it’s nice to have a relaxing week of blogging, right? I’ve been absolutely off my feet this week and haven’t managed to get around to as many blogs, but hopefully this week will be quieter. 😛 happy reading!
    My Sunday Post!

    • Hi Cait. I’m not big on surprises, but I am looking forward to getting some reading done and since my last week in Aug is very light I’ll be able to get caught up in the blogger world and life. ^_^

  5. Enjoy your books, hope the Psy-changeling is still as good as before (I’m not at #7). Have a great week !
