Sunday Post: Pre-Order Deals & Giveaways Galore – 7/01/18

July 1, 2018 Sunday Post 47

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 was a quiet week at home. Which was a good thing, since I ended up being sick with a nasty summer cold. Luckily, two of the three kids were at summer camp, and my older daughter was happy to be left mostly to her own (electronic) devices. The two of us did go see Incredibles 2 before I got sick, and we both really enjoyed it. She also got me watching My Hero Academia with her—we’re five episodes in at this point and while I don’t think I worship this anime quite as much as she does, it is great fun. Oh, and she also roped me into playing Puyo Puyo Tetris on the Switch. I’m not very good, but that’s okay. Other than that, I binged a whole lot of The Office.

I did get some editing in too, though! I think I’m going to be sending out my first query very soon, so wish me luck!

Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:

    I don’t know why, but summer colds are worse than colds any other time of the year. I hope you are feeling better soon. I absolutely loved The Year of Living Awkwardly. The drama is not as high stakes as the first book, and I think I sort of liked it better because of that. Chloe grows a lot and comes to terms with some things, and she is hilarious as always. I hope you enjoy it.

    Oh gosh, getting sick in the summer is just awful! I had strep throat one year, and it’s like “WHY?? It’s June!!” I hope you are feeling better though. Yay for enjoying The Incredibles 2. I just adored it – so cute. 🙂

    I’ve been binging FBI Files and CLAWS. PLUS falling back in love with reading. I am glad it was a quiet week – if there is a time to get sick, that is ideal. I hope you’re coming over the end of it. I still haven’t seen Incredibles 2 – my mom went and saw it without me after we made a plan to go see it! I couldn’t believe it! I’ll be on vacation this week so I look forward to really being back next week.

  4. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Summer colds are the worst! It’s like, it’s hot and whatever out…how about the ability to not breathe on top of it! They are dreadful! I hope yours goes away quickly!!

    Nice new reads too! Some new to me ones but I hope you enjoy them all!

    Here’s my STS

    Booooo sickness! I hate being sick, especially when I still have Mom duties to do. I hope you’re feeling better!

    I actually really love anime. My brother got me hooked on it when we were in high school. Has your daughter seen Your Lie in April? I think it’s something you’d both enjoy! <3

        Eerily similar. The plots are almost exactly the same… I haven’t read her book, so I can’t really comment on anything but the synopsis, but I thought of this movie the second I read about the book. Kid is awesome at piano, abusive parent who can no longer play, tries to find love of music again, etc.

        • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

          I watched one episode of the anime, and I really like it. I do see some parallels with the book, but it’s pretty different at this point. The book focuses on Beck’s inability to escape his mom’s pressure and abuse and it looks like the anime takes place a few years after the MC’s mom is dead. Both are roughly based on Beethoven’s childhood, though (in real life it was Beethoven’s dad who was abusive) so it’s not surprising that there are similar themes.

          • Lindsi

            Noted! It’s definitely a book I want to read! I’ve heard wonderful things about it. It’s like a retelling in its own way… <3 I'm so glad you enjoyed the first episode! 🙂

  6. Kathy @ My Nook Books and More

    I caught a cold too. I think it’s because I went from our hot weather to Seattle’s colder weather on our vacation. I hope you feel better! We just got a Switch for my daughters birthday so I’ll have to look for that game. I hope you have a great week!

    Good luck with your query when you do it! That must be exciting. And I’m glad to hear Incredibles 2 is good. I’ve been hearing it is, and I was so hoping it would turn out good!

    Hope you’re feeling better! And have a great 4th!!!

  8. Suzanne @ The Bookish Libra

    Ugh, summer colds are so annoying. I really hope that you’re feeling better.

    I still need to go see The Incredibles 2. My son keeps telling me he doesn’t want to go, so I may just go on my own, haha.

    Thanks for featuring my discussion post too. It made my day to see that 🙂

  9. CG @ Paper Fury

    AHhh best of luck with the querying!! That’s SO exciting and such a big step. I hope you’re not too nervous. *sends good wishes* And ugh to being sick in summer, that always seems so unfair. Glad you’re getting better though!!

  10. Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books

    Boo to summertime lurgy! That sucks. At least you got to see the Incredibles 2. It’s not released here (in UK) for another week or so. 🙁

    Good luck with your query! Fingers crossed you get responses.
