Last week on FYFA (and in my life):
This week we had an exchange student named Carmen come to stay with us! She’ll be here for three weeks, and it’s been really fun getting to know her so far!
On the blogging front, I had the chance to see Victoria Schwab on her tour for This Savage Song, and I found her completely fascinating. Watch the blog next week for a recap!
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog:
- June Recap & Best of the Bunch

Next week on FYFA:
- I need to catch up on some reviews next week, but I don’t have it planned out. (How is it that I somehow manage to sign up for three tours in one week and then none in the next? Wish I could have The three tours were all for books that I knew I was going to read and review anyway, so it made sense, but I wish I could have spread them out a bit!)
- Let’s Discuss – something bookish! 🙂
Book Blogger Birthdays and Blogoversaries:
A couple of blogger birthdays and blogoversaries this week! I hope you’ll stop on by these blogs and give the bloggers well-wishes on their special days! Check out the calendar to see what you might have just missed or what’s coming up. (If you want to be added to the calendar, you can just fill out the birthday/blogoversary form!)
First of all, I have to acknowledge two recent celebrations that I missed! One was submitted on the day of the event and the other was submitted a few days before, but I didn’t see it until after the date had passed. I would love it if you would pop over to these two blogs and tell them Nicole over at Feed Your Fiction Addiction is sorry she missed their big days!
Now onto the upcoming events:
- July 13th – Genesis @ Latte Nights Reviews‘ Birthday
