Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 6/19/16

June 19, 2016 Sunday Post 20

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):

This week I read my first Wattpad book (Cait from Paper Fury wrote it, and I’d tell you all to go read it, but it seems to have suddenly disappeared from Wattpad – I’ll let you know if it’s back!). I also started my first manga series, which I’m reading with my son (Death Note) – we’re watching the anime too, but we’re only a couple of episodes in. I feel like I’m expanding my horizons! 🙂

Other than that, I’ve just been feeling very out of it and frustratingly lackadaisical. I can’t seem to get into the summer swing of things! My daughter was away at camp this past week, but hopefully I’ll be more motivated now that she’s home and we’re back on a more normal schedule. We shall see!

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

Also, this isn’t actually on my blog, but the giveaway for the Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up has been posted over at Falconer’s Library. Wendy’s giving away a bookish item from Powell’s Bookstore – and they have some really fun options!! (And, just so it’s clear, you don’t actually have to have linked up to the Wrap-Up Round-Up to participate in the giveaway.)

Next week on FYFA:

  • 738 Days by Stacey Kade – Review
  • Nogiku Series – New Cover Reveal & Giveaway
  • Moonchild by Kate L. Mary – Review
  • Let’s Discuss – something bookish! 🙂

  1. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    OOh nice! Reliquary and Scythe are both ones that intrigue me. Though I’m hearing mixed things on Reliquary. Might be one I try out once the series is finished, as that’s what previous people have told me. Hope you enjoy all the new reads!

    Here’s my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    I’ve been thinking of reading some manga for a while (my boyfriend is really into it, and it seems like it would be my kind of thing), and I actually just bought the first volume of Death Note a couple of days ago! That seems to be the one people recommend as a good starter, so I hope both of us (and your son!) enjoy it 🙂

    Oh, that pre-order info is so helpful. Thanks for sharing it, Nicole. I’ve never preordered a book before, so this gives me an incentive.

    Happy reading!

  4. Charlie @ Girl of 1000 Wonders

    I have two graphic novels sitting on the coffee table that I’ve been meaning to read since school got out. Hopefully next week I’ll get to them. When I read the first one I thought the same – I’m expanding my horizons! I’ve been kind of out of it this week, too. I didn’t get hardly anything accomplished except a few blog posts scheduled. Here’s to a better week ahead!

    Hey OTSP Secret Sis! Looks like you got some great stuff this week! I got Scythe as well, very excited for that as well. Is Iron to Iron a novella to go with Wolf by Wolf? Which I still need to read. The only book I’ve read on Wattpad is Anna Todd’s new books, I need to read some others! Hope you have a great week coming up, and you can check out my Sunday Post in the link below!

    I’ve never tried manga, that’s cool that you’re trying it and expanding your horizons 🙂

    I’ve been feeling kind of out of it too. My blogging has been alright, but I keep getting distracted and forgetting to visit other blogs it seems or just kind of having a harder time keeping track of other posts than usual… I don’t know lol.

    Nevernight and Scythe have such pretty covers! Enjoy your new books 🙂
