Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 2/18/18

February 18, 2018 Sunday Post 50

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):

Well, I finished my edit of my MG novel this week (for now—I’m sure there will be more rounds of editing to come!) So now I’m trying to catch up on all things blogging. I’ve finally caught up on comments and I’m trying to get to all the discussion challenge and wrap-up posts read. I’m doing my best but sorry if I haven’t been around in a little while!

Other than that, there’s not much else to report this week. Oh, except, I won two more giveaways. Like, it’s starting to get scary, guys (awesome scary, though). 🙂

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

Book Blogger Birthdays and Blogoversaries:

Birthday-150 Blogoversary-150x150

Here are the birthdays and blogoversaries this week! I hope you’ll go wish these bloggers well on their special days! Make sure you check out the calendar to see what you might have just missed or what’s coming up. (If you want to be added to the calendar, you can always fill out the birthday/blogoversary form.)


For Review:

I received The Hazel Wood audiobook awhile back, but I forgot to post a pic (because it was in my car so I could listen to it). Macmillan also sent me this cute poster with a gold Sharpie. It was a little battered when it got here, but my daughter enjoyed it anyway. She’s been doing a little coloring! Thanks, Macmillan!

I also received these two beauties from Disney-Hyperion. I was so excited about City of Bastards because I LOVED the first book! And Captain Superlative looks absolutely adorable!

From NetGalley:

I went a little crazy with pre-approved review books this week. (I couldn’t help myself—they looked so good!). First I got Now a Major Motion Picture from Sourcebooks and then I picked up Tyler Johnson Was HereThe Astonishing Color of After, and The Inventors at No. 8, all from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.


Remember how a few weeks ago, I said I’d won five giveaways recently. Well, I’d forgotten about one. I also won You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone from Fantastic Flying Book Tours! I also got one of my other wins in the mail: An audiobook of The First to Know that I won from We Live and Breathe Books.


I bought 14 copies of Tom Sawyer from The Book Outlet for my homeschool co-op language arts class and, of course, I had to add a few things to the order so that I could get free shipping.  🙂

Great Discussions/Goings On Around the Blogosphere:

 Pre-Order Deals:

Listed in order of release date. Any new deals that I just added to the list this week will be denoted with a *** so you can easily find them!

Please note: Almost all pre-order giveaways run “while supplies last,” so I can’t guarantee that they’ll be open until the date listed. Pre-0rder early for your best chance to get all the goodies!

    My True Love Gave To Me was fun.

  2. Tanya @ Girl Plus Books

    Congrats on finishing the edit! (This round, anyway.) And two more giveaways?! Can I drink what your drinking? Or rub your head or something? LOL I enjoyed most of the stories in My True Love Gave To Me (Rainbow Rowell’s was a real favorite).

  3. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Daaang girl!! Two more giveaways?! Keep buying lotto tickets!! Lol!! Nice new reads too! I had received one of those posters as well with an audio download of The Hazel Wood, but sadly my poster was sooo severely mangled that it wasn’t really worth coloring.

    I hope you enjoy all your awesome new reads!!

    Here’s my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    *Applause, applause* Congratulations on finishing your edits. Now you’re one step closer to us reading it. Nice haul. I need to work Royal Bastards in. I think I would enjoy it, and would like to have it read before the sequel comes out. I am so happy your prize arrived. I hope you love that book when you listen to it. I adored it.

    You are on a giveaway winning streak!! I need some of that luck! Congrats on finishing the first edit of your book all the way through. I’ve heard from so many authors that is a hard task. Hope you have a great week!

  6. Bookworm Brandee

    Congrats on the editing progress you made with your novel. That’s fantastic! It looks like you had a pretty good reading/book haul week. I’m looking forward to seeing what you think of Now a Major Motion Picture…that one caught my eye.
    Have a great week, Nicole!

  7. Jane

    As much as I’m trying to stop adding books to my TBR, I had to add Now a Major Motion Picture and You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone.

    P.S. It’s not a big deal (to me) that you forgot! I actually forgot I’d even signed up for the announcement thing (as I usually do for things). Thanks for the post shout-out 🙂 <3

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      I always feel bad when I get to checking my Jotforms and realize that someone put their info in before their big day and I missed it. I try to check it relatively often, but lately I’ve been behind on everything! I’m glad you didn’t feel slighted.

  8. Lisa Mandina (Lisa Loves Literature)

    I got City of Bastards too, and I’m looking forward to reading it, even though I wasn’t as happy with the first book as I’d hoped to be. It was good enough that I want to read on though. You’re so good about the editing. I know that is what I need to do with my YA novel before I try to send it out. But I got started on that for NaNo, and got tired and gave up. Oh well. Maybe I’m just not meant to do any more than write stories for myself.

      I did that too, Lisa. I literally NEED deadlines to get myself to keep going. Since I applied for that workshop, it gave me a deadline of the 15th because I knew that if I got accepted I’d have to send in the full manuscript. Without deadlines, I’m useless!

  9. Marie @ Drizzle & Hurricane Books

    Ahhhh congratulations on finishing your edits, that’s so great! I should start the edits on my WIP very soon and… I am terrified, haha.
    Congratulations on the giveaways and all of these amazin books – I’m dying to read The Astonishing Color of After and You’ll Miss Me When I am Gone, hope you’ll enjoy both! 🙂 x

    The Astonishing Color of After looks wonderful! I cannot wait to read that one.

    Congratulations on finishing your first round of edits! It’s SUCH an accomplishment!

    Do You Dog-ear?

  11. Jen

    Oh my gosh, you won two more giveaways?! LOL! Maybe you should go play the lotto with all of your good luck winning! 😉 And I can’t wait to see what you think of My True Love Gave To Me….I was contemplating picking that book up over the holidays because my library had it on Overdrive…but then I spaced? Ummm idk what happened lol. So I can’t wait to hear you thoughts on it.

  12. Daniela Ark

    I was going to request Tyler Johnson Was Here and The Astonishing Color of After too, but I have way too many ending ARCS 🙁

    YES for finishing editing your MG novel! OMG I CANNOT WAIT FOR THAT BOOK TO HIT THE SHELVES!
