Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 5/22/16

May 22, 2016 Sunday Post 35

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):

As if I didn’t get enough books at BEA, I spent several hours this past week volunteering at the Scholastic Warehouse sale so that I could get MORE free books for my kids. I managed to get 23 free books for them! (Actually, 22 – one was for me. ‘Cause, you know, I need more books.) My husband is convinced I have a serious illness. I’d better start having some more giveaways so that I can fit all of these books on our shelves because the book piles are NOT going over well.  🙂

Yesterday, I spent the day in bed because I came down with a mysterious fever and felt miserable. On the plus side, that meant I spent the ENTIRE day reading, but I would have preferred to not feel like I wanted to barf the whole day. I actually didn’t think I was going to manage to get a Sunday Post up today, but I’m feeling much better at this moment – hopefully it lasts!

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

Next week on FYFA:

Okay, so I’d planned on changing the schedule date of The Crown’s Game so that it would go up last week, but in all the BEA craziness, I didn’t remember to do it. It’s scheduled for tomorrow, though!

  • BEA Day 3 Wrap-Up & Giveaway
  • The Cage and The Hunt by Megan Shepherd – Review
  • Bite Sized Reviews of some other books I’ve read recently – I’m really behind!!

Clean Sweep ARC Challenge April Update:

I participated in the 24-hour Read-a-thon, and since I was sick, I pretty much read ALL day. Couldn’t read much at night, though because I conked out before 10. Oh well! I still managed to read two books (one of which was almost 500 pages), which brought my challenge total for this week to four books. Three of these were BEA books!

    My husband had that fever, the doctor told him it was viral and it seems to be going around, I hope you are feeling better.

    If you are going to have a serious illness to something I would want it to be books 🙂 Books sounds like an awesome illness to have 😉

    I hope you have a great week, Nicole! Happy Reading!

    The mysterious fevers are the worst! I get them a few times per year (sometimes only lasting a day or two) and then I’m good again. I sometimes wonder if it’s a reaction to stress and whatever germs my kids bring home from school.

    Lots of great posts in your roundup! I went through and found some new blogs to follow. 🙂

      You’re the second person who’s suggested stress as a trigger – that never occurred to me, but I’ve definitely been running myself ragged (what with BEA and all). At the very least, I’m sure stress makes us more susceptible to the effects of viruses and such.

    Glad you’re feeling better, there does seem to be something going around. People I know have had it too. Or something anyway. 🙂 And yeah I understand how your husband feels- I think if you’re not a book blogger it can be hard to understand why there have to be so MANY books lol. I often get strange looks when I have to go into EVERY bookstore… 🙂

    I’ve also gotten the fever with no known cause. It comes and goes. I too think it might be stress related. Loving your books. I think I’ll check out The Stranger Game. A new author to try.

    I hope today was much better for you! It’s no fun to feel slick, and I HATE that feeling like you’re going to throw up. That’s great you got a lot of reading in though. I did a bit of reading this weekend, so I’m really excited about that. I’m hoping to finally start a BEA this week. I can’t wait!

    Yay free books! As one of your followers, I’m totally cool with it if you wanna do some more giveaways 😉

    Sorry you weren’t feeling well :-/ Glad you’re feeling better now. Reading is definitely the best thing when you’re not feeling well. I’ve found that graphic novels work even better if you can find some good ones because they take less brain power and also have pretty pictures to distract you.

    Glad to hear you are feeling better! My boys had a fever last Thursday night/Friday and there wasn’t anything else wrong with them. Luckily it passed quickly and they are running around again. But I completely agree, when you’re sick it’s a great excuse to stay in bed and read all day. Even though I hate being sick a few times a year, I always love/hate those days since I get to read uninterrupted. 🙂

  8. Cait @ Paper Fury

    That is very sad and sucky about being sick…bUT YAY FOR READING TIME AT LEAST! *cheers* I actually really admire you if you can be sick AND read. XD I can’t! I always end up feeling cranky and miserable at the book and abandon everything and binge watch some mind-numbing TV show. ahhaaha. Ahem. Least to say, you’re very productive! 😉
    And pfffft, book collecting IS NOT A PROBLEM. I mean, you don’t need to see the floor right???? We can just cover it with books and still live happy lives??? #truth
    Eeeeep, thanks for listing my upcoming blogversary *SHRIEKS* I’M GOING TO BE 5. THAT FEELS SO OLD.

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      Usually, even when I’m sick I can manage to read. I did need to take some breaks and shut my eyes for a bit, but I can’t really nap (ever), so I’d eventually just end up reading again. And you’re right that floors are definitely overrated. They really should only be used for extra book storage – oh, and tables and speakers too – and nightstands …

    I am so excited for the stranger game. I recently discovered this one too and was like oohhh need that one. So I grabbed it. You had a great week. love all your bea posts. I only did one. I have one more coming just with our book haul but its taking us forever to get them up. I think ash is going to do one with the pics since she took most of them.
