Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 12/10/17

December 10, 2017 Sunday Post 34

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):

This week I’ve gotten back to a normal posting schedule. I got my list of 2018 challenges up (which takes me a long time to get together), and I’m trying to make sure I’m getting around the blogosphere and keeping up on my editing. Busy, busy!

If you were watching my blog like a hawk (or just happened upon it at the right time), you may have noticed my “Working List of 2018 Challenges” accidentally go up yesterday for a couple of hours—it even got tweeted. Oops! That was just supposed to be my list of the challenges I was still checking on, so I’m not sure how I managed to hit Publish. It’s gone now. Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!

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

Next week on FYFA:

  • The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson: A Dual Review with Danielle Hammelef
  • The Evaporation of Sofi Snow by Mary Weber: Review & Giveaway
  • Island of Exiles & Sea of Strangers: Review & Giveaway (I know, I said I was posting this last week, but I had it in my calendar twice for some reason—I swear, it’s going up this time).

Latest FYFA Giveaway Winners!!:

  • Sam D. won last month’s Wrap-Up Round-Up Make Me Read It giveaway, and she chose for us to read The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black. I’ve been meaning to read that one forever and I’m really liking it so far!
  • Evelina @ Avalinah’s books won the November Discussion Challenge giveaway. The theme was books featuring Native Americans (or other aboriginal people), and she chose The Ways of My Grandmothers by Beverly Hungry Wolf, which sounds fascinating!

Book Blogger Birthdays and Blogoversaries:

  1. Tânia @MyLovelySecret

    Just a few weeks I accidentally published a post. I think it’s something that happens to everyone.

    Thank you for sharing all these giveaways and pre-orders deals. I wish I could join them, but the pre-orders deals aren’t for international readers.

    Happy readings! 😉

    I almost accidentally published a review last night that was intended for two weeks from now. It happens to us every once in a while.

    I am paring down my list of challenges for next year, but I’m trying to also find some diverse challenges that meet what my overall goals are. I am interested in playing that Monopoly-like challenge (even if I get nowhere close to winning).

  3. Greg

    Island of Exiles/ Sea of strangers both look good, they’ve been catching my eye lately as reviews have been popping up. And I hate when I publish something to soon! Especially when I don’t catch it right away or I forgot that changes were needed *embarrassing*

  4. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    OOh congrats on the gift card! I always love getting/winning gift cards to amazon! I basically only spend it on books! Like I will legit even check un-apply if I am buying something other than books in my order! Lol!!! Happy shopping!

    Here’s my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

  5. Sam@WLABB

    Your list of 2018 challenges is incredible. Thank you so much for doing that. I was just looking at it yesterday as I prepared my challenges post. I can’t wait to read your review for The Sky is Everywhere. I loved it so much, and I miss Jandy Nelson. I hope that book they have been talking about for the past few years actually sees the light of day soon.

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      I was actually thinking about you when I wrote my review because I didn’t love it, unfortunately, and the cheating was definitely an issue for me in the book. I know I’m a black sheep with that book, though, and I LOVED Nelson’s other book.

  6. Geybie’s Book Blog

    Yay, thank you so much, Nicole. Today is my special day. My baby is one year old! I can’t believe I’ve done it and thrive. Yay, so happy for my little blog. Thank you for the support, Nicole. I hope you have a wonderful week filled with awesome books. ❤️😁

  7. Tanya @ Girl Plus Books

    You are so amazing for putting together the list of challenges! Wow, what a lot of work. I still haven’t decided if I’m going to do any challenges next year but I know exactly where to find the if I do! I really, really enjoyed The Coldest Girl in Coldtown. I thought it had such a unique take on vampires.

  8. Lola

    That’s awesome you compiled a list of 2018 challenges! I am always impressed with how many challenges there are, but I am only joining two of them next year.

    Congrats on the win! It’s always fun to win a gift card and the get to decide on which books to spend it. Have a great week!
