Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 11/20/16

November 20, 2016 Sunday Post 22

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):

I’ve managed to recover somewhat from my election-induced bout of depression and I’m ready to get back to “regular” life (without putting my convictions to the side and going back to ignoring reality—at least I’m going to try hard not to).

The only thing really going on this week was that I’ve been working hard on my NaNoWriMo novel and it’s going exceptionally well. You can check out my NaNo posts to learn a bit more about it!

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

Also, this isn’t technically on my blog, but make sure you head over to the October Wrap-Up Round-Up Giveaway, which is being hosted over at Lisa Loves Literature!

Next week on FYFA:

  • Scythe by Neal Shusterman – Review
  • Some other reviews (I make no promises about which)
  • Let’s Discuss: Something bookish! 🙂 (Probably. If I can manage it. With NaNoWriMo, my discussion posts might be limited this month.)

Book Blogger Birthdays and Blogoversaries:

Birthday-150 Blogoversary-150x150

First of all, I need to say sorry to the people whose birthdays and blogoversaries that I missed this past week since I didn’t do a regular Sunday Post. I know I was feeling low, but that doesn’t mean my blogger friends shouldn’t have been celebrated. I hope you’ll still go wish them well—better late than never, right?

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!)

Last week’s events:

This week’s events:

Book-Haul

For Review:

I had never heard of The Thing with Feathers when I received it in the mail, but now that I’ve read the synopsis, I’m convinced this is a book I’ll love! And when I got an email asking if I wanted a review copy of The Cursed Queen (which is a companion to The Impostor Queen) I just about jumped up and down! Yes, please!!!

Thanks so much to Margaret K. McElderry Books and Blink!

Purchased:

I listened to the first two books in this series and really enjoyed the audiobook versions, so I decided to use an Audible credit for this one, even though I already have an ebook copy that I received for review.

    It’s nice that you mention your blogging friends blogiversary.
    I am looking forward to your thoughts on Scythe. I am thrilled that Neal Shusterman is doing another series.

  2. Laurel-Rain Snow

    Congrats on the NaNoWriMo progress. I did the event in 2010, and went on to publish my book Interior Designs in 2014. Yes, I had more work to do after NaNo. But the event jumpstarted it all.

    Enjoy your week, and I’m curious about The Thing with Feathers.

    Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  3. Kristen @ Metaphors and Moonlight

    I’m glad you’re feeling a bit better emotionally 🙂 And that’s awesome that your NaNo novel is going well! Getting a surprise book that you’d never heard of but that sounds good is also awesome lol.

    And I actually do have my first giveaway going on on my blog right now until Dec 2! It’s been very nerve-wracking so far, haha. I’ll just link to with the commentluv.

    Writing, reviewing, blogging – it sounds like you are out of your post-election malaise (or as out of it as any of us will get). Hope your week continues to be fruitful. Emma
