Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 7/17/16

July 17, 2016 Sunday Post 18

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 summer has been crazy busy for me! Between having Carmen here from Spain, driving the kids to their various appointments and activities and schoolwork that we’re still taking care of (including my youngest’s special reading program, which takes an hour and a half a day), I feel like I’m running myself ragged. This week, I only managed to get two posts up (and, as you can see, my Sunday Post is going up much later than usual). I was thinking of working on another one, but decided to instead spend the extra time I had visiting other blogs and commenting. That will probably be my strategy next week as well because I know I’m going to be limited on time again.

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

Next week on FYFA:

  • Once again, not much. Hopefully a couple of reviews. Or something.
  • Let’s Discuss – something bookish! 🙂

Won:

I won Unbound from the Diverse Readathon giveaway at I Heart Romance and YA. Thanks so much, Zeee! (I got a physical copy, but didn’t have a chance to take a picture of the actual book – so this will have to do.)

    Gosh. You run a tight ship. Busy as well. I don’t know how you do it! Anyway, I hope you’ll be able to breathe soon, but I’m sure you’re enjoying the hustle and bustle of being a mom to your kiddos.

    Enjoy all your books this week!

      Some days I think I’m crazy! Luckily, things have been falling into place for the most part – the only thing that’s really suffering is me posting on my blog more often, but in the grand scheme of things I know that blogging has to take last place sometimes. It’s just a fact of life!

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      Yeah, I’ve never managed to be a scheduler, so when I have a busy week, I just don’t manage to get as much posted. (I actually DID already have the audiobook post written and just needed to add the poll and the graphic, otherwise I don’t know if I would have managed that one either!) It’s okay, though – I’m not going to stress about it because there’s no point. I’d rather spend my time reading and commenting right now when I can.

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      I’m managing not to really stress about it. I think I’m making a good decision with just posting less for a few weeks. Once our exchange student is gone things will go a bit more back to normal. I don’t want to ruin our time with her by stressing over blogging!

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      Sometimes we just need to give ourselves a break and be fine with that. I’m managing to stay zen about it right now. 🙂 I think my scattered time is better spent reading and commenting that fretting about posting right now.

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      I’m actually managing not to stress about it. I decided midway through the week that I’d rather focus on replying, reading other blogs and commenting than stressing about getting more posts up. I’m preferring this strategy for now.

    My summer has been crazy busy as well! I wish it would slow down and give me a little time to catch up. 🙂 I hope the exchange student situation is going well and that you get a break this week!

  3. Terri M.

    I have been busy as well! I came back from vacation and feel like I’ve been going non-stop since then with little time to blog. But I’m looking forward to getting back on track.

    I took a personal day yesterday and got my inbox all cleaned out. Now I think I can focus on commenting on other blogs. This weekend, I hope to catch up on posts and reviews. *crosses fingers*

    Thank you for reminding me about the ToS pre-order offer. Of course, I pre-ordered a while ago and forgot they would probably have a promo for this.
    It has been a busy summer for both of us. I have been posting less as well and weighing reading blogs/commenting or posting carefully. Its hard to be so busy with a high profile blog. I just keep thinking, this too shall pass. I almost can’t wait for summer to be over. That’s sad because it has been a lot of fun for the most part.

    Ohhh that’s so exciting that you also won Witch Hunter and King Slayer! I can’t wait to see what you think of them! Hope this week has been a tad bit easier for you! It’s been crazy over here too … we’re getting our house prepped to sale and spending more hours than I thought I would each week working on the details of the house we’re having built, plus moving my parents here and researching places for my Grandparents. Sleep? What’s sleep 😂. Good luck this week too!!
