This past week on FYFA (and in my life):
I’m in Cancun right now, celebrating my 20th wedding anniversary!! (Which was technically in June, but who wants to go to Cancun when it’s already hot outside where you live?) Hopefully I’m having a fabulous time. Since I’m writing this post ahead of time, I have no idea. 🙂
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:
- The Edge of the Word by Drew Callander and Alana Harrison: Review, Giveaway & the Authors’ Top Ten Addictions – Last chance to enter the giveaway!
- Every Stolen Breath by Kimberly Gabriel: Review & Giveaway
- Bite-Sized Reviews of Lexi Magill and the Teleportation Tournament, Becoming RBG, Friend or Fiction, and Catwad
