Last week on FYFA (and in my life):
I know I’ve been saying this a lot lately, but this is going to be a quick post today (I’m not adding many new links). I’m really in crunch time trying to finish up my editing job, and I spent all last night helping my daughter work on songs for her recital and helping my son study for his Japanese final.
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog last week:
- April Wrap-Up & Best of the Bunch – Find out what you might have missed in April
- May Discussion Challenge Link-Up & Giveaway – Link up your discussions here and enter the giveaway!
- Kill All Happies by Rachel Cohn: Review & Giveaway – Still time to enter to win my paperback ARC copy!
- Do You Ever Add to Your Posts After You’ve Published Them? Let’s Discuss.
Next week on FYFA:
- The Wrap-Up Round-Up Giveaway
- It Started with Goodbye by Christina June – Review, Giveaway & June’s Top Ten Addictions – I thought this was to go up last week, but then I realized that I somehow had it in my calendar twice. This week is the real date!
