Sunday Post: Book Pre-order Campaigns & Giveaways Galore – 1/19/20

January 19, 2020 Sunday Post 30

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):

So far my writing goals have been going well. Of course, I’ve been sticking to them for all of two weeks—but I’ll celebrate small successes.  🙂 I’ve also been happily keeping up with my blogging. I’ve got two posts scheduled to go up next week. I’ve actually read all of the discussions linked up to the Discussion Challenge and the wrap-ups linked to the Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up, and I’m not too far behind on comments. What witchery is this?

As far as my reading goes, I’ve been working on reading the finalists for the Elementary/Middle Grade Fiction category of the Cybils (watch for my post about all the finalists tomorrow).

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

Book Blogger Birthdays and Blogoversaries:

Birthday-150 Blogoversary-150x150

Here are the birthdays and blogoversaries for 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, it’s easy! Just fill out the birthday/blogoversary form.)

Book Haul:

For Review:

A fun surprise from Delacorte Books for Young Readers: Samantha Spinner and the Boy in the Ball by Russell Ginns! I really enjoyed the first two books in this zany series!

NetGalley:

I saw Snug by Catana Chetwynd over at Twirling Book Princess and was instantly convinced it would be a super cute, quick read to add some levity to my day. I was right—I’ve already read it, so watch for my review to come soon! I’m thankful to Andrews McMeel Publishing for granting me a review copy!

Then I picked up Rewritten by Tara Gilboy. This is the sequel to Unwritten, which I really loved! This fantastic cover was illustrated by Jomike Tejido! Thanks, Jollyfish Press for the review copy!

Purchased:

I wanted a copy of Slayer by Kiersten White so my mom could read it, and I was also hoping to get my hands on A Dash of Trouble so I could read the sequel for the Cybils Awards (I can’t read books out of order!). I found them on Book Outlet. Yay! Of course, you can’t just buy two books from Book Outlet because you need to spend $35 and get free shipping, and there was a $10 off deal going on if you spent $35. So I managed to get the original two plus ALL these books for that price. (It’s kind of insane, actually.): The Boy, the Boat, and the Beast, Where the Watermelons Grow, Enginerds, Charlie Hernández and the League of Shadows, Revenge of the EngiNerds, Five Feet Apart, An Enchantment of Ravens, Circus Mirandus, Walk Two Moons, and Tumble & Blue.

Won:

I won Lisa @ Lisa Loves Literature‘s weekly giveaway and she sent me Song of the Crimson Flower, Wolf by Wolf and The Grand Escape!

    What a haul! But, how could you pass on such a good deal, right? Snug looks so cute, and just reading the title makes me warm and fuzzy.

  2. Rachel

    Glad to hear you’re keeping up with your reading and blogging goals! Hope you enjoy Slayer, I’ve been curious about it. 🙂

  3. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Oh nice! Yeah, that’s the tricky thing with Book Outlet. I haven’t shopped them in ages. Plus I dislike those “dots” on the pages to mark them as bargain. And then there’s the not knowing what condition the book is actually in. I drive myself crazy with it! Plus, I rarely can get up to the $35 for free shipping since I’ve that habit of buying books as they release! Lol.

    Nice new reads though! Lots of new to me ones besides Slayer! I hope you (and your mom!) enjoy them all!

    Here’s my StS

    Have a GREAT day!

      The dots on the pages do drive me crazy sometimes—it wasn’t so bad when they used to always put them on the bottom of the books, but now they’re sometimes on the top, which shows when the book is in your bookcase! I have no problem getting up to the $35 mark, though—I can pretty much always find books I’ve missed that I’ve been meaning to read. And now that I volunteer at Bernie’s Book Bank, I feel especially good about getting middle grade books from Book Outlet because I know I’ll donate them there when I’m done reading them!

    I am glad to hear that you are doing well with your goals so far. Nothing wrong with celebrating small victories 🙂 Nice Book Outlet haul! I have a love-hate relationship with that site. But it is mostly love. Congrats on your book win! I really enjoyed Song of the Crimson Flower and hope you do as well. Have a great week, Nicole!

  5. Greg

    Hope the writing continues to go well. And nice pics! Love the shelves. 🙂

    Hope you have a great week Nicole!

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      Ha! I have no tips because I’m definitely not consistent. Well, actually I have some tips for the writing side of things—and I plan to share those in a post soon. But as far as my blogging goes, I’m pretty haphazard. Every once in a while, I get ahead, but I don’t expect it to last!

    I really enjoyed and loved both Five Feet Apart and An Enchantment of Ravens as well, so I hope you will be able to love both of those books. Being able to keep up with everything for two weeks is quite the achievement, so you should feel proud ^.^
