Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 7/16/17

July 16, 2017 Sunday Post 30

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.

This past week on FYFA (and in my life):

The end of summer is sneaking up on me and I’m kind of scrambling. We take my daughter to camp tomorrow, so we’ve been getting her packed. I just finished up a second edit of my newest project, and now I need to get started on figuring out my curriculum for next year’s homeschool co-op classes before we go on vacation at the beginning of August (and, preferably before our Japanese exchange student gets here on the 22nd).

So, if I haven’t been around to your blog recently, I promise that I’ll be doing more visiting soon!!

We’ve been moving all of our old pictures and videos to Amazon Drive, so we’ve been doing a lot of reminiscing this week, watching old videos from when the kids were really little. It’s all sorts of adorable!

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

Next week on FYFA:

  • Lucky in Love by Kasie West – Review & Giveaway
  • No Good Deed by Kara Connolly – Review, Giveaway, and Connolly’s Top Ten Addictions

For Review:

I loved Clara Kensie’s last book, so I jumped at the chance to review Deception So Deadly! And I was kicking myself for not inquiring about Invictus at ALA, so I had to download that one from Edelweiss! Again, I’ve LOVED all of Graudin’s books so far!

    I am constantly amazed at how many authors I flat-out have never heard of. With all the reading I do, it doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface. I would say that’s a good thing.

  2. Joy // Joyousreads

    Phew. I’m breathless just thinking about all the stuff you need to do this summer! I can’t believe it’s fast ending for you. It seems like ours just started up here.

    Anyway, I’m sure you’ll do splendidly well. 🙂

    Happy reading, Nicole!

  3. Tanya @ Girl Plus Books

    Sounds like you have a lot going on, Nicole. But vacation is on the horizon – yay! I’m reading Lucky in Love right now. Only 30% in but it’s so, so cute. And Seth – oh my goodness, what a sweetheart. Thanks for the shout-out about the K.A. Tucker giveaway. I loved Until it Fades and would be excited to see someone I know win a copy. 🙂

    I’m also running a giveaway for The Intuitives until the 18th! One HC and 2 paperbacks!

  5. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    OOoh nice! Seeing a lot of Invictus around lately! Hope you enjoy that one too!

    And ooh I was double checking the preorder gift list and saw that Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo wasn’t up yet. Think they revealed it earlier this week, as I remember I had to preorder that one! This is for a character poster!

    Aw, I love looking back at old photos and the like. How fun! Thanks so much for sharing about my favorite things giveaway. 🙂

    I really wanted Invictus at ALA but I was at the booth when someone asked and they had all been given away earlier that morning. Sigh.

    The end of summer IS sneaking up! I hate it. I need some more summer. I don’t even want to think of curriculum for the year. I forgot you’re getting an exchange student! I’m sure your son will love it, getting to practice his Japanese. Good luck with getting things ready this week!

  9. Greg

    Ooh I did miss your review of the Lake Effect, I’ve ben kinda looking forward to that one due to the Lake Michigan setting. Just went over and read your review and glad to hear it was good. will definitely be reading it now!

    Invictus looks really good too.

    Oh, no, no, no, don’t say the words end of summer lol. It’s my favorite time of the year, and I never want it to end.😉
    I am so excited to see your reviews of Lucky in Love and No Good Deed! They both sound amazing!

  11. S. J. Pajonas

    Ha. When I loved all of our old photos and videos to Amazon Drive, I did the same thing. Lots of reminiscing. I’m sure I spent a lot of time just staring into space remembering all the old days. 🙂
