2018 Book Blog Discussion Challenge Sign-Up

2018 Book Blog Discussion Challenge Sign-Up

Book Blog Discussion Challenge, Challenges 109

Welcome to the 2018 Book Blog Discussion Challenge hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight! We came up with this challenge because we wanted to encourage our fellow book bloggers to not only read more (since there are already lots of challenges for that), but talk more too! Well, it’s been SO successful these last three years that we decided to bring it back! So often, we book bloggers mean to post more discussions on our blogs, but we just don’t quite get around to it. Well, we wanted to give everyone a little motivation to keep the discussions going, plus give us a place to link up our discussions so that more people will see our precious words of wisdom (or … you know … our GIF-filled rants). I hope you’ll join us for this challenge and pledge yourself to posting… Read more »

Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 12/3/17

Sunday Post 26

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): I won NaNoWriMo! Got my 50,000 words, but I still need to finish the book. BUT I’m putting it on hold just for a bit so I can finish my edits to my MG book. I have the opportunity to send it out to a few people because of the conference I went to, so I want to get the book in shape so I can take advantage of that! Here’s what you may have missed on the blog this past week: Still a light week here, since I only posted three times and two of those posts were… Read more »

November Wrap-Up & Best of the Bunch

November Wrap-Up & Best of the Bunch

Best of the Bunch, Monthly Recap 28

  My Goings On in November: I won NaNoWriMo!!! My book isn’t finished yet, but I got my 50,000 words n and I’m motivated to keep going! I attended an SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) writing conference, which gave me some great ideas on things I need to work on with my middle grade novel. Of course, then I proceeded to start NaNo, so I didn’t manage to work on it at all. But, yeah, I’m going to get on this in December. I didn’t manage too much else—For instance, I did exactly zero working out in November. My husband and I started watching Orphan Black and The Good Doctor—really enjoying both of them.
