Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore 9/20/15

September 20, 2015 Sunday Post 23

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead.

Last week on FYFA (and in my life):

I know it was a slow week on the blog this week. I’d love to say that it’s a one-time thing, but I can’t make any promises. Now that school is back in full swing, I have papers to grade and classes to prepare for and my kids to teach! Add to that, two editing projects with upcoming deadlines and I just don’t think I can manage more than three to four blog posts a week right now. (Plus, this week we had a wedding to go to as well.) I’m also just not getting around the blogosphere like I usually do, so I’m sorry. Experience has told me that once these first few weeks of school are under my belt, things will get easier and I’ll be back to making the rounds.

Here’s what you may have missed last week:

Next week on FYFA:

  • Undivided by Neal Shusterman – I tried, but I just didn’t have enough downtime this week to read. I did skim the first three books again, though (which was incredibly helpful) and I’m now just about 100 pages into this one. So, I should be able to post my review next week. I will finish this series!!
  • Transformed by EV Fairfall (review)
  • Let’s Discuss – something bookish  🙂
Book-Haul
Won it:

From my OTSP Secret Sister:

I got such a fun gift from my Secret Sister this month!! Spike! For those of you who don’t know, I am a HUGE Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan, and my heart will forever be with Spike. (Yeah, I know that Buffy reunites with Angel in the comic books, but I’m sorry, Joss Whedon, it will always be Spike for me!)

    GORGEOUS haul Nicole^^ I SO want to read The Girl at Midnight! And I love the little peak you shared of your bookshelf ♥ It sucks when real life gets in the way of reading and blogging but sadly, it’s a reality we all deal with from time to time…I do hope you get a little bit of ‘you’ time soon 🙂 Have a wonderful week xxx

    I also feel the same way the first month of school. This year I tried really hard to prepare my content ahead of time, but I still had some holes. As for keeping up, I’m seriously slacking. I hope you enjoy Ella, the Slayer. I really liked it!

    It looks like your secret sister knows you well. That is an awesome package this month. I hope you enjoy Ella Slayer, that cover is gorgeous! Thanks for the links….I spent a lot of time clicking on this page.

    I’m quite busy myself these days, so I understand. Do what you can and don’t stress too much! I love all your secret sister gifts. I never watched Buffy regularly, but when I did, I loved Spike too. Is this secret sister thing something you can sign up for, or is it a personal thing? I’d love to do it if there is room or whatever!

    I can totally understand life getting to busy to blog. I’m the same right now. I have a found myself a couple of hours to write a post and visit a few blogs today so I’m taking advantage of it.
    Hope you have a great week, even if you are busy. Cheers 🙂

    I know I sound like a broken record in saying this, but I know first hand what how busy the school year can be. This is the first year I am homeschooling all four of my children and to be honest, I don’t know how I even know how I manage to keep myself together ha! I’m so grateful for my littles though, they help immensely with the house and just taking initiative and working on their own as best as they can 🙂 I hope things settle down a bit more for you!
