Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 1/22/17

January 22, 2017 Sunday Post 28

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):

The highlight of this past week is that I got to go to an event for Veronica Roth’s newest book, Carve the Mark. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the chance to meet her afterward (100 people won the opportunity to stay behind and get their books personalized, but I didn’t know about the event in time to pre-register, so I wasn’t even in the running). Still, the interview was fun and I’m excited to read the book now! I’ll try to post a recap this coming week.

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

Next week on FYFA:

  • Long Way Home by Katie McGarry – Review & Giveaway
  • Accidentally On Purpose by Jill Shalvis – Review & Giveaway
  • Let’s Discuss: Something bookish! 🙂

Book Blogger Birthdays and Blogoversaries:

Birthday-150 Blogoversary-150x150

Just one blogoversary this week (and one birthday for a blog that doesn’t seem to exist? Does anyone know Maya @ The Fandom Fox? The URL she gave me doesn’t work and I found a blog with a similar name, but there doesn’t seem to be a Maya there). Head on over and wish these bloggers well 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 always fill out the birthday/blogoversary form!)

This week’s events:

For Review:

Thanks so much to Random House Children’s Books for Batgirl at Super Hero High! My daughter and I loved the last one of these and are looking forward to this next installment!

From NetGalley/Edelweiss:

Crown of Wishes is from NetGalley—I just got the first book for Christmas, so this is perfect! And I saw a blog tour for #famous and couldn’t resist heading over to Edelweiss to pick it up. (I think I signed up for the tour too? Gosh, my brain is mush right now and I can’t remember for sure!)

Won:

I won these two beauties from Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight‘s birthday celebration! Thanks, Shannon!!

  1. Joy // Joyousreads

    Lots of stuff going on last week. Thanks for sharing the giveaways. One of my goals this year is to enter more giveaways to help curb the book buying binges. Lol.

    Congratulations on your wins. I hope you’ll enjoy them.

    Happy reading, Nicole!

  2. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    OOh nice! Yeah, Veronica was nowhere near me, but I did order a signed book from Andersons that I’ll pick up next month! I’m going to the Stephanie Garber event and asked if I could pick it up then and they said sure! So yay! I did get to meet Veronica wayyy before the Divergent movies came out and did enjoy hearing her speak. Though I wonder how much she’s changed since the movie deal! Lol! But at least you got to see her speak though!

    Nice new reads! Pretty much new to me ones! Hope you enjoy them!

    Here’s my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

      Yikes! See, I just wrote a post about how I often miss the “turmoil” until after it happens—and I think I prefer it that way. I hadn’t heard of these accusations, but I like to try to go into a book with an open mind. We shall see!

    Glad you had fun at the event. That stinks that they only took 100 people, and you didn’t even get a chance for it. A Crown of Wishes is such a beautiful color.

  4. Greg

    I’ve been really curious about Carve the Mark since I wondered what Veronica Roth would do next. I’ll be interested in seeing reviews and seeing what the reactions are. And that Bookopoly board- I had fun peering at all the squares lol. How fun!

    Great post on rose colored glasses and the blogging community! I agree, I’ve been fortunate so far and have largely avoided drama, and I think part of that is avoiding the Twitter drama like many commenters said. If you go looking for trouble you usually find it, and vice versa lol. My experiences w/ the book blogging community have been almost uniformly positive, and I love that about this group.

    Great discussions too. Have a super week Nicole!

  5. Tanya @ Girl Plus Books

    The Veronica Roth event sounded fun! Toobad you were too late in registering to get in on the meet-up but still… just getting to go is pretty great. She was at YallFest the last time I went (2015) but she was one of the “ticketed” authors and there were just too many others that I wanted to see.

    My stop on the Long Way Home blog tour was yesterday and I just loved that one. I adore Katie to start with. When it comes to YA contemporary she’s my favorite. I’m sad to see this series come to an end because I could keep reading about this group of characters for as long as she was willing to write about them. 🙂

    I can’t wait to hear about your recap for the Veronica Roth event! I can’t even fathom how many people were there if they limited it to only 100 for getting their books signed. Wow.
    I also have The Star-Touched Queen and have been meaning to read it for the last few months! I’m hoping to get to it next month, fingers crossed we both enjoy.
