Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 4/2/17

April 2, 2017 Sunday Post 44

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):

So, yesterday we just had our end of year performance for my acting class at our homeschool co-op. I love teaching the class, but I have to confess that it feels like a bit of relief after the performance is finished. We’ll still be doing plenty of school around here, but all of the classes I’ve been teaching at co-op are over!

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

Next week on FYFA:

  • Reviews of Toward a Secret Sky by Heather Maclean, The Pain Eater by Beth Goobie and Just Another Girl by Elizabeth Eulberg
  • The Dead Inside by Cyndy Drew Etler: Review & Giveaway

I got Royal Bastards for review from Disney-Hyperion. Greg over at Greg’s Book Haven has talked about this one on his blog several times and got me interested, so I was excited when it was offered to me! Thanks so much, Disney!

    Glad your classes are over! I hope this means you’ll have a little extra time on your hands. Have a great week!

  2. Kristen @ Metaphors and Moonlight

    I missed your post last week, so I just read it now lol. Glad you liked the Beauty and the Beast movie! And oh an acting class, that sounds fun! Did you used to act or something? I took a week or two-long summer camp acting class thing once as a teen, but I would have no idea how to teach that!

  3. Joy // Joyousreads

    I can’t wait for Royal Bastards as well! Yay, for a physical ARC (I only have an e-copy). Looking forward to reading your thoughts on this book.

    Have a great week!

    I’m curious to see your review for Royal Bastards. I’m glad the performance for your acting class is over -and that all co-op classes you teach are over. Hopefully that alleviates some stress!

    Yay for Royal Bastards! I hope it’s good. 🙂 And I’m thinking of trying the Pajonas book, her stuff looks fun.

    Hope you have a supr week Nicole!

  6. Christina T

    Royal Bastards sounds interesting. Hope you enjoy it! I’m also curious about the new Elizabeth Eulberg book. I’ve enjoyed her books in the past.

    Hope you have a great week! Thanks for visiting my blog 🙂

  7. Maureen Beatrice

    Awesome that you finished teaching your acting class. I can imagine you feel a little relieved. I hope you get to read some more now! 😀
    Have a great week and happy reading!

  8. Michelle @ In Libris Veritas

    Yay for finishing up your class!!
    I’ve been out of the loop on new and upcoming releases lately so I’ll have to check out what Royal Bastards is about, I love the tagline!

    I hope you have an awesome week!

  9. Literary Feline (Wendy)

    I think there is always a bit of relief that comes after working on a project (in your case a class), no matter how much we enjoyed the process. I bet the performance was wonderful. 🙂 Royal Bastards looks like a good one! I hope you enjoy it. I hope you have a great week, Nicole! (Your blog is so much fun!)

  10. Dragonfly @ Our Familiarium

    Glad to hear the coop classes are over and now you can relax! Loved your review of The Inexplicable Logic of My Life. Spot on. For me the prose and characters made it a 8-start book minus three stars for the things you mentioned. 5-stars review 🙂 It’s awesome you got the Royal Bastards! Can’t wait for your review! 🙂

  11. Tanya @ Girl Plus Books

    Hooray for being done with classes (the ones you teach, anyway)! That has to be a lot off your plate. I loved your April 1 post, Nicole. So funny. 🙂 I’ll have to check out Royal Bastards… this is the first I’ve seen/heard of it. Thanks so much for sharing my blogoversary giveaway! Hope you’re having a great week!

  12. S. J. Pajonas

    Thank you for mentioning Summer Haikus!! I super appreciate it and hope some of your readers take me up on the free offer. Sounds like it was a good week to wrap things up! I always feel a huge amount of relief when I finish up a big project. I get so anxious about it and getting it done. I bet it’s nice to have that co-op part done with! 🙂

  13. Di @ Book Reviews by Di

    Oops. Only a week behind at commenting back! Thanks for visiting my blog though! I’ll do better this week. 😉

    Greg’s great at getting books into our TBR piles and I have a couple from him that I need to check out!

    I CANNOT BELIEVE ABOUT BUFFY… I’m going to check that post out IMMEDIATELY!

    Hope you had a great week again this week and I’ll try to catch up with you when you post. 🙂
