Bought, Bagged and Wrapping it Up is where I share my new books, as well as what happened here at (un)Conventional Bookviews and elsewhere in the blogoshpere. I’m linking up with the usual suspects, AKA Team Tynga’s Reviews, Talk Supe and Caffeinated Reviewer.

STS # – Bought Borrowed & Bagged #

Stacking The Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews is all about the latest additions to your library – virtual or actual, with books that are  bought, borrowed, won or ARCs  you will be reading soon. Bought Borrowed and Bagged is a homage to to Barron’s Books and Baubles from KMM’ Fever series, and is hosted by Braine over at Talk Supe. Without further ado, here’s what I bought, borrowed or bagged this past week:

ARCs Recieved - (un)Conventional Bookviews - Bought Borrowed and Bagged Stacking the Shelves

Wicked Bond cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Thank you, Loveswept and Netgalley!

First Step Forward cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Thank you, Pocket Books and Edelweiss!

Purchased - (un)Conventional Bookviews bought borrowed and bagged stacking the shelves

Magic Steals cover - (un)Conventional BookviewsSugar Rush cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews

I had both of these on pre-order because I love both authors, and the series are great, too!

And I got another The Bookwormbox in the mail this week, too! It still feels like Christmas in the middle of summer 🙂 And the thing I find so awesome with The Bookworm Box is that it’s also about giving it back or paying it forward! The proceeds from this box go to charity, and that is something I can definitely stand behind.

I love that there is both some cool swag and amazing-looking books! Aren’t those covers beautiful? And can you believe I haven’t read any Pepper Winters books yet? Here are the links to the books: The Perfect Life and Unseen Messages.

The Sunday Post # – Wrapping it Up

Kim @ The Caffeinated Reviewer, is our hostess with the mostest for the weekly Sunday Post where I’m wrapping things up. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere.


It’s been hot and humid this past week, we had two thunderstorms, but it was still as hot just after it stopped raining. I got a beautiful photo of a double rainbow, though 🙂 We’re changing some bathroom furniture and our sink, and it feels like the whole bathroom is new – such a nice feeling 🙂

  1. Fun that you got two Sawyer Bennets. Oh, I got all excited about your Kate Daniels’ book and then realized that I read it as part of an anthology. I just love that series.

    Heat and humidity are an awful combo. We had that, too, this week. Ugh!

    Neat that you’re bathroom work gave you something new and improved just with a makeover.

    Ahhh, cute pics of Freddy.

    • Bennett is awesome! And both of the series I got books from this week are extremely hot 😉
      I love Kate Daniels, too, and I’m always excited to enter her universe.
      It’s really nice that the whole bathroom looks new just with a few things changed 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Sophia!

  2. Nice stuff in the Bookworm Box. How cool is that? Love all those swaggy things like bookmarks and stuff. 🙂 It’s been hot here too, but so humid you don’t even want to go out. lol is summer over yet? ha ha

    Freddy looks like he’s having fun. 🙂

    • I agree, it’s always a treat to get the Bookworm Box, Greg. And the swag thing are just as exciting to get as the books 🙂 I especially enjoy not knowing in advance which books I’ll get!
      I don’t want summer to be over quite yet, but I’m over the hot, muggy weather for sure 😀

  3. I’ve never read a book by Sawyer Bennett! I wouldn’t even know with which book to start *hides face*
    One thing I hate when it rains is the heat that it sometimes leaves behind. It’s so suffocating!

    • I think you’d have to figure out how hot you want your books to be… Bennett has some that are NA romances and others that are pretty hard-core erotica 😀 I love all of that, but I know not everybody does.
      Yeah, the other day when it rained, it only became hotter. Today has been really nice, though 🙂

  4. Hi, I love the cover of Magic Steal by Ilona Andrews and the Unseen by Pepper Winters I got on my wishlist, too. So happy reading and have a great weekend 🙂

    best wishes

  5. Is Freddy a daschund?! he’s so cute!! I petsit and some of my favorite pups to watch are little weiner dogs! They’re so sweet!
    I really want to subscribe to the bookworm box but I heard it’s kind of expensive so I haven’t done it yet! I might give it a try one month though because it looks like so much fun and the pictures everyone posts always have such cool surprises in the box with the books! I can’t wait to see what you think of the books you got!

  6. Ilona Andrews and Pepper Winters <3 I love those two authors! You have a Nalini Singh review this week woohoo!!!!!! I'm going to fangirl all over your page this coming week lol.

    The Bookworm books looks amazing! I haven’t read a Pepper Winters book yet, but I hear a lot of love about her books!

  8. The contents of the Bookwork Box look amazing! I really need to look into subscription boxes again as they would be a nice treat. I love the idea that the proceeds of this one goes to charity.

  9. I love the bookworm box! Its like Christmas, but better because the money goes to charity! So, I get a gift and so do others! I got my first Romance Reveal box this month too and its pretty good.
    Freddy is just too adorable!
    Enjoy your new books!

  10. The bookworm box is lovely idea. Hope you can put up your feet and tuck into it with the weather being so very humid. Have a great week.

  11. Always need my weekly fix of Freddy! He is getting so big and just so cute!
    I love the bookworm boxes, I haven’t gotten on yet since I keep missing the cut off. I chose for not to get My uppercase box which has more book I read but I would love to try the bookworm box at least one.

    I MISS YOU!!!! Have a great week my beautiful friend! Happy Reading! ox

  12. I do love getting book boxes in the mail. You reminded me that I totally forgot to mention Uppercase this past week, and the new book I got. I guess I could always mention it next week. You got some good looking books this week. I hope you love them both. Have a great week!

  13. Woah! I didn’t know Sugar Rush came out already!? Dang! This move is really cramping my style here. I have been clamoring to get the second book and totally dropped the ball. I know what I’ll tell the hubby what I want for my bday this year. 🙂 I am now following your blog. I’m clearly missing things and we seem to enjoy the same books. I will have to read your review on Sugar Rush after I’ve read it. I don’t want to spoil anything.

  14. I love thunderstorms but I could do without the humidity for sure!! I hope it cools off for you soon. I did love your pictures this week, so beautiful 🙂

    I’ll have to pick up a newer Sawyer Bennett series – I love her writing but it’s been a while since I’ve read something of hers. Hmmmm…. where to start??

    Have a great week!

  15. Those are great photos, thanks for sharing them here!

    I’m not surprised to see Sawyer B. here, enjoy your new babies, Lexxie, and the reno must be fun 😀

  16. The BookWorm box is super cute, the packaging made me smile 🙂 It has a lot of exciting goodies inside though which is even better LOL! Oh and Freddy is adorable as always! It’s been really hot and humid here too – COOL a double rainbow ♥ Hope you’re having a fantastic week my friend!

  17. I love seeing all the pictures of Freddy, he is so cute. I didn’t realize the Bookworm box’es were for charity. That’s a great idea and you got some really nice things. We’ve been in the middle of a horrible heat wave for a few weeks and it finally broke a bit a couple of days ago. I hate hot weather! Looking forward to the Fall actually. I’ve never read anything by Sawyer Bennett or Pepper Winter actually. Maybe someday 🙂
