Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 10/9/16

October 9, 2016 Sunday Post 25

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):

 

Yesterday I attended the YA Lit Conference at Anderson’s Bookshop – it’s a conference aimed at educators with 33 YA authors. I took notes on the keynotes and breakouts, and I’ll try to summarize some of the fun things I learned in a post next week! Today, I’m at the YA Fandom Frenzy event, which is more fan-focused.

In personal news, we had some things happen with my husband’s job this week that threw us into a complete tailspin–nothing bad, per se, but some major decisions need to be made and it’s all very stressful (and especially hard not to second-guess ourselves). Between the conference and the personal stuff going on, I’m going to try to get this week’s Sunday Post up quick. We shall see how I do with that.

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

Next week on FYFA:

  • Some reviews. Probably Spindle by Shonna Slayton, Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven and/or Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland, but I make no promises.
  • Let’s Discuss: Something bookish! 🙂

Book Blogger Birthdays and Blogoversaries:

Birthday-150 Blogoversary-150x150

Three birthdays this week! Make sure you send these bloggers som. Also, 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 always fill out the birthday/blogoversary form!)

I’m really tired, and I don’t have pictures ready, so I’m just going to update this next week.

      It’s not a horrible thing. It’s just a decision that could have major ramifications for us either way, and it’s so stressful to make that sort of decision without constantly wondering if you chose the right path. Where’s a crystal ball when you need one?

    I hope everything turns out okay! Big decisions are always stressful.

    On a brighter note, thank you SO MUCH for including the Blood for Blood pre-order deal! I loved Wolf by Wolf, so Blood for Blood is one of my most anticipated releases for the rest of the year – I can’t believe I didn’t know about this! Now I definitely need to pre-order it.

    Good luck with your decisions! I know a couple people who are having work changes or turmoil, so it seems to be going around. Never fun but hopefully it turns out well in your case.

    I’m kinda curious about Our Chemical Hearts (that cover w/ the fish gets my attention). Have a great weekend!

  3. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Sounds like crazy times! Hope everything turns out okay with your husband’s job! I wanted to do the Anderson’s YA Lit Conference or even just the Fandom Frenzy, but there wasn’t a whole lot of authors I read who were in attendance, so I couldn’t justify the price and drive up there. Maybe another time. Sigh…

    Hope you enjoy your new reads!

    Here’s my STS post

    Have a GREAT day!

    Trying to make decisions and not sure which path would be the best fit is SO hard! We had that last year with my husband’s job and it left for many sleepless nights trying to figure out which would be the best choice. Pros and Cons lists were super helpful for us. Wishing you lots of luck with your guy’s decision!

    I’m beyond late for getting around to all the Sunday Post round ups. Sorry! It’s just been one of those weeks.

    I loved your Giveaway Guilt post although I haven’t had a chance it comment on it at all.

    I hope you have a great week this week.

    The YA conference sounds great. I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it.
    Hope you and your husband have managed to reach a decision that you’re both comfortable with and that you have some peace about it.
    Here’s to a great week! 🙂
