A New Year’s Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore! 1/1/17

January 1, 2017 Sunday Post 26

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):

Happy New Year to all my bookish friends!!

This week has gone by fast. I’ve been working on a play that I’m adapting for my homeschool co-op acting class, and our whole family has been battling a cold. Other than that, there’s not much new to report except that it’s a new year and a fresh start! Bring it on!

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

Next week on FYFA:

For Christmas:

Confession: I bought Stars Above, Fool’s Quest, and The Star-Touched Queen for myself from The Book Outlet (along with MILA 2.0: Redemption and the first two Brandon Sanderson Alcatraz books for my son, which I’ll probably read), but then told my mom to give them to me for Christmas so that I wouldn’t have to feel guilty about buying books. She was happy to oblige! (Especially since she’ll most likely be reading them too.)

Got these for Christmas. Looks like I’ve got some good reading ahead of me in 2017!

    Hahah! I did the same thing, Nicole. So I wouldn’t worry. But my family bought me presents even when I told me not to. LOL.

    Anyway, Happy New Year and happy reading!

    Happy New Year! Hope the colds go away and that you have an awesome start to 2017! I’ve had a few Netflix shows lately too that I’ve wondered can I have those hours back? 🙂 They can be hit or miss, but sorry to hear such a well loved show was a tad disappointing.

    Nice new books, I see a new Robin Hobb (yay) and Exist Once More I’ve seen over at Shannon’s and am curious! Have a great week.

      Ha! The confession was supposed to be more about me buying my own Christmas presents—but you have a point about buying books. The guilt comes from my husband’s (justified) perspective. He bought me three huge bookcases that are already overflowing and many of the books are ones I haven’t read yet. His response when he sees I’ve bought more books is generally no more than a raised eyebrow or a tiny comment, but that’s enough to get my guilt-meter going. 🙂 (Much better to just “get the books for Christmas.”)

    Well, I really love that stat thing! Last year was somewhere between a suckfest and a blast. I’m kinda glad it’s over, though. I am already into the new year and almost done with my first book. I love your site and can’t wait to see what else you have going this year. Thanks for sharing some great deals! I always seem to find more books to grab lol.

    Happy New Year! So I am just now getting to the Gilmore Girls reboot. I just finished the second episode and so far, I am meh. I’m not hating it, but I’m not loving it either. I will be reading your post about it once I finish all the episodes. I just don’t want to see spoilers. 🙂
