Sunday Post: Book Pre-order Campaigns & Giveaways Galore – 5/12/19

May 12, 2019 Sunday Post 32

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’m getting this post out very late today because I didn’t manage to get it updated before I had to meet family at church. Sometimes life just gets in the way.  🙂

Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there! We are spending the day with family, celebrating Mother’s Day and my daughter’s birthday. She’s been baking up a storm–she decided she wanted to make lemon bars for her birthday, and then she decided she also wanted to make an apple cake. And oatmeal cookies. (And caramel.) Yeah, she’s crazy, but it’s all very yummy!

My husband ordered me an adorable steampunk fox pin from Etsy (I’ll show a picture later–it’s still coming since the person who made it is in Russia). And my kids were sweet—they all made me cards. My oldest created a book for hers. It was a “picture book” that showed me following a trail of books into a cage—showing I can’t escape her love. But she pointed out that it’s just fine with me to be held captive as long as I have a book. LOL! And my younger daughter made me this amazing picture with pastels:

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

Book Haul:

For Review:

I actually got Hope and Other Punchlines (Punch Lines? I’ve seen it written both ways) just before my last Sunday Post, but I didn’t have time to add a pic since I was at the SCBWI writing conference. I’ve already written my review for this one (click on the title to see it).

From NetGalley/Edelweiss:

I couldn’t resist when I got an email with auto-approval for Storm and Fury and The Evil Queen. And I signed up for the tour of The Wise and the Wicked. (I really need to start reading like crazy because I’ve been requesting/accepting way too many books lately!!)

Purchased:

My mom and I attended Jay Kristoff’s tour for Aurora Rising, and I got my pre-order of the book!

And I bought a couple of books at the SCBWI conference: See You in the Cosmos and The Passion of Dolssa.

      We ALWAYS have to check out the pre-orders! 🙂 (P.S. Sorry it’s taken me so long to respond. You ended up in my spam folder somehow, so I’m glad I found your lonely little comment sitting in a sea of advertisements.)

    Happy Mother’s Day! Glad you had a good one! And yay for seeing Kristoff! He was just in this neck of the woods too with Susan Dennard the other day, but I missed it.

    Happy Mother’s Day. All that food sounds great. The cards sound really cute. My daughter brought me flowers, a box of chocolate and some face masks because I’m always laughing about how they always come in the beauty boxes I get.

    Sounds like your daughter is quite the baker… and the family gets to reap the benefits. 🙂 I can’t wait to see a pic of the fox pin… it sounds awesome. And I was so excited to get an arc for Storm and Fury. Armentrout is one of my favorites.

      Oops! Just realized I forgot to actually put in the pic of the artwork my daughter made for me (your comment about the pic of the pin reminded me). This is what happens when I try to do stuff last minute. Oh well, I added it now. 🙂

    Wow! Your daughter’s artwork is amazing. It’s so nice your kids made you gifts. Hope and Other Punch Lines was so good! I finished it this morning, and it just reminded me of how much I love Julie Buxbaum’s books. I hope you enjoy Dolssa. I was surprised by how much I liked it. Julie Berry seems to be able to write historical fiction I enjoy.

    Happy Mothers Day! And I love the presents you received, they are so thoughtful. Homemade presents are the best! ♥ And your daughter sounds exactly like me! I’ll start baking one thing and then the next thing I know I made bars, cookies and brownies lol!
    Enjoy Storm And Fury! I got that on my Kindle too and I can’t wait to get into that world!
