Sunday Post: Book Pre-order Campaigns & Giveaways Galore – 9/15/19

September 15, 2019 Sunday Post 40

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):

The back yard is looking really great!! It’s still in process, but here are a couple of pics so you can see how it’s going: The first shows the patio mostly finished (there’s upside down decking on that bottom stair, which is why it looks weird). The second two show the landscaping so far (the patio looks strange in these because they put a layer of sand over the patio for while they work—I guess it protects it?). I’ll try to have better pics next week, when hopefully it should be finished!

Actually, last night we were so excited about the new patio that we decided to put the fire pit out and have a family night around the fire. Only problem is, my husband was so eager to enjoy the patio before dinner that he was a bit hasty while trying to cut some fire starter sticks and he missed and cut his finger with the hatchet instead!

So, we spent most of the night at the ER. Eight stitches later, we still sat around a fire (just a starter log!) because he really wanted to enjoy that back yard—at least for a little while.  🙂

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

Book Blogger Birthdays and Blogoversaries:

Book Haul:

For Review:

I received two surprises in the mail this week. I actually already had Cursed by Thomas Wheeler in ARC form (so it doesn’t count against me for my overall review book numbers!), but it was very nice of Simon & Schuster to send me the final copy so I can see all Frank Miller’s illustrations in their glory (and feature the new cover on the blog)!
(Confession: I took off the Not For Resale sticker because it was stuck right on the front of the book and made it look ugly—I solemnly swear not to resell the book, but I still feel a little guilty because later I realized other people could resell it at some point in the future if I ever get rid of it or something.)

Then I also received Scars Like Wings by Erin Stewart from Delacorte Press. The cover art was created by Jennifer Heuer. I’ve been curious about this book since I’ve been mentioning the pre-order goodies every week in my pre-order section. This sounds like the type of contemporary I love—with a bit of heartbreak and an overall message of hope!

      Luckily, he was very calm through the entire process, so even though it was a bad cut, we weren’t panicking or anything. We were actually joking about it a lot of the night. I feel horrible for him, though, and it certainly doesn’t look pretty!

    Though I admire his enthusiasm, I am sad to hear your husband was injured. Poor guy. The yard does look incredible though, and I bet it would have nice sitting out with the fire pit. I am about halfway through Scars Like Wings right now, and I am really liking it. I feel that because I am a mom, I relate hard to the aunt. I keep crying for Aunt Cora.

  2. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    The backyard is looking niiiice! And oh wow, I’m glad your husband was okay! A long time ago, I forget what he was doing, my grandpa was using some sort of power saw or something like that and ended up cutting the tip of his finger clean off! We took him to the hospital but he declined to have it sewn back on! Lol. He was so silly, I miss him… Can’t wait to see your finished backyard pics! I bet it will be gorgeous!

    Nice new reads too! Seeing that Cursed around a lot! I hope you end up enjoying the new reads! Happy Reading this week!!

    Here’s my StS

      My husband actually cut the tips of his fingers on a table saw when he was a teenager as well—he got the bone, so his two fingers are slightly shorter than the others, but they were able to get it all sewed back up and you can’t tell unless you’re looking closely. Glad that this injury was much less severe!

    Great pics! Sorry to hear about the injury though! Yikes. Glad you guys were still able to enjoy a little bit of fire later though! 🙂

    Have an awesome week Nicole!

    sorry to hear about hubby’s finger! 🙁

    Your backyard is indeed looking great though! Love hoe the patio is looking Love family nights around the fire! But now with the outbreak in New England I’m paranoid with the mosquitos 🙁 finger with the hatchet instead!

    I also have the ARC of Curse and I can’t wait to get to it 🙂 Your final copy is gorgeous! (and yes, I bet it looks better without the sticker! 🙂 )

    Ooh I’m glad your husband is okay!! I’ve had stitches once, and it wasn’t terrible, but I think it would be harder to have them in your finger. The backyard is looking great though! And yay for enjoying a fire. 🙂
