Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 4/17/16

April 17, 2016 Sunday Post 33

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):

Our co-op performances are all done!! The kids did a fantastic job and they went smoothly – I was especially super proud of my daughter and her best friend who both sang beautiful solos for the song “Legacy” by Nichole Nordeman.

Solo

My beautiful girl singing her solo.

Now that the performance is over, I’ll have a lot more time to catch up on blog stuff. Last week, I didn’t post a true discussion post, but I did do an infographic (which is basically a discussion if you read the text!). It was lots of fun! Next week, I’m hoping to post some info on BEA – some tips and such! Last year, by this time, I’d already done that!

Here’s what you may have missed this past week:

And, while this wasn’t technically on my blog, Kissin’ Blue Karen is hosting the Monthly Wrap-up Round-up Giveaway this month, so head over there and check it out!

Next week on FYFA:

I’m lucky I made it through this week. Plan for next week? Um, no. But I AM planning on introducing you all to my mom, who’s going to contribute to my blog! Yep, I conned her into it. She reads pretty much all the books I read, so I convinced her she has to write a review or two. (So be nice to her – she’s shy!)

  • Some reviews
  • Let’s Discuss – Something bookish! Maybe the upcoming BEA? 🙂

ARC April Update:

So far, I’ve read three books for ARC April (and I’m in the middle of another), but I’ve only posted my review for one of them (The Mirror King). More reviews coming soon!

Book Blogger Birthdays and Blogoversaries:

Birthday-150 Blogoversary-150x150

A couple of birthdays coming up next week. If you have a chance, I hope you’ll stop by these blogs and send the bloggers some cheer in honor of their special days! (And check out the calendar to see what you might have just missed or what’s coming up.)

Book-Haul
 Nothing this week! 

Great Discussions/Goings On Around the Blogosphere:

The discussion challenge is still going strong – it amazes me how many new discussions get posted every single day! Here are a few of my favorites:

      Our co-op school year is (pretty much) over – it doesn’t go as long as a regular school year. Gives us some time to catch up on things we might have been avoiding (like history – I’ve been horrible about teaching history this year!)

    Eeep! I just kinda lost it with your pre-order deal section because, 1. I want to pre-order The Rose & the Dagger and NEED TO NOW because I WANT that swag!! And 2. You reminded me that I’ll be getting and ACOTAR Tote because of my ACOMAF pre-order 😀 YAY! Have a wonderful week my friend ♥

    That’s wonderful that your daughter did so well, and I love how proud you are of your kids 🙂 But it seems like things will be a lot less stressful with performances over!

    And how fun that your mom will be contributing to your blog! We’ll be nice, scout’s honor 😛

    Thanks for sharing my post, and have a great week!

    Yay for your daughter, and welcome to your mom — I’m think she’ll find us an appreciative audience.

    I just posted a giveaway in honor of author Elizabeth Goudge’s birthday, which I’ll be celebrating next week. Some really nice books on offer there from the publisher who’s been reprinting them.

    I love that your mom is going to post, that will be so fun to read her reviews. I know you must be proud of your daughter, she’s gorgeous too, btw. Thanks for all the links (and the shout out). Have a great week!

    What a good photo! I could never have done something like that at her age. I wasn’t comfortable in front of people until I was basically out of college. I’ve had a lazy-ish week and I plan on having another! So cute that your mom is contributing!
