Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 9/24/17

September 24, 2017 Sunday Post 46

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):

How is September almost over? Seriously, I’m baffled by the passage of time lately. This week… things happened. I don’t remember what, but I remember that I did stuff.

Oh, wait—I do remember one thing. My daughter got 13 inches of her hair cut off so we could donate it to Locks of Love. She always gets comments on her long hair, so it was tough to let it go, but she loves her new shorter style. Makes so many things easier!

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

Next week on FYFA:

  • Bite-Sized Reviews of One Dark Throne, A Crown of Wishes, Before She Ignites, and Wonder Woman: Warbringer
  • Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up Link-Up

    Wow, your daughter has amaaazing hair. My hair has never grown this long, plus it’s all curly, which makes it look two times shorter than it really is. annoying xD but managing shorter hair is aaaaalways much simpler. Plus, it’ll grow back, and seems you had a very good cause 🙂 I admire your kid for choosing something like that! It’s a beautiful thing to do. Hopefully it grows back even prettier and longer cause she deserves it 🙂

    Nice posts you’re sharing. It seems I can never come away from your site without three more tabs open 😀

    Thanks for sharing all those giveaways and have a great week! 🙂

  2. Aj @ Read All The Things!

    Wow, your daughter’s hair looks great. I don’t think mine would ever grow that long, but I did donate 8 inches of my hair once. I’d like to donate it again. I can’t right now because it currently has highlights in it.

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      Yeah, mine has highlights too. I considered cutting 8 inches because there are a couple of places that look like they will take highlighted hair (not sure what they do with it), but I haven’t decided yet. Even with just 8 inches, my hair would be pretty short.

  3. Jenea's Book Obsession

    That’s great your daughter did that with her hair. I donated mine a few years ago in memory of my parents. It is a big help for those who lose their hair from treatment.

    Enjoy your new book and congrats on the win. 🙂

    Thank you for stopping by earlier.

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      I think it’s wonderful that you did that to honor your parents—I’m sure that having that personal connection made the experience that much more powerful for you. (Though, of course, I wish you hadn’t had to experience the loss in the first place.)

    I’m still getting used to it being September, let alone it being almost over! Yikes I need time to slow way down! My sister had really long hair too for the longest time, and she did the Locks of Love thing. She said she couldn’t believe how light her head felt after losing all that hair!

    Yay for the One Dark Throne spoiler post. And Wonder Woman: Warbringer I’ve been debating on, so will definitely watch for your review!

    Have a great week!

  5. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Oh wow! That’s awesome! I’ve wanted to do that with my own hair but it never seems to get that long and by the time it reaches a certain length I’m ready for shorter hair anyway! Lol.

    Nice new reads too! Yay for the win! Hope you enjoy them both!!

    Here’s my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    The days are definitely starting to blend together. I can’t believe this is the last week of September! It just got here! Congrats to your daughter! I cut 16 inches in June and donated to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths program. (Locks of Love does charge for their wigs – over $1000 – and the policies to be eligible to purchase one are so marginalizing.) Short hair is easy to care for, but mine is so short that it looks like I put my finger in a light socket each morning! I have to straighten it to look presentable. Once it grows out like your daughter’s, I will love it much more!

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      Ha! Both she and I have really fine hair, so we don’t have that light socket issue. I had heard that Locks of Love charges for the wigs, but I didn’t realize it was so much. Last time we donated to a different organization—I think it was Wigs for Kids—but this time I’ll admit that I was a bit lazy and just did Locks of Love because it was the most obvious and easiest to find info on (and a place to do it). I’ll have to look more carefully next time.

  7. Karen Blue

    Wow her hair was really long. Nice that she donated it. So many awesome looking pre-orders. I almost clicked a few, but I am too far behind right now for books to rot on my shelf. Thanks for sharing though!

  8. Dragonfly @ Our Familiarium

    oh how sweet and generous of your daughter Nicole. Her hair is beautiful btw! I’m going to check Cait’s post. Thanks for sharing! I need all the help I can get because.. NaNoWriMo!!! the first time I do it. [I’m scared! lol]

  9. Becky @ A Fool's Ingenuity

    Oh wow! That is a major haircut but it’s awesome she donated to something good like that, it’s always nice to know it’s going to a good cause. Having shorter hair definitely, has its benefits as I discovered as a teen.

  10. S. J. Pajonas

    Wow! Kudos to your daughter for cutting all that hair off and donating it! That’s so awesome. I also don’t know where my weeks have been going. They’ve flown right on by.

  11. Jen

    Oh my goodness, that’s amazing that your daughter was able to do that and donate to such a wonderful cause! What a great feeling that must have caused in her heart. ♥
    And I can’t wait to see what you think about Seize Today! That series sounds like it would be right up my alley, so I’ve been patiently waiting for the final book so I can binge read the series. Can’t wait for your review!
