Sunday Post: Book Pre-order Campaigns & Giveaways Galore – 5/31/20

May 31, 2020 Sunday Post 29

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’ve been horrified by the news lately. Just horrified, and it makes me want to cry. That’s all I can say about that.

Here’s what we’ve been up to while safe indoors this week:

  • We watched:
    • My younger daughter and I watched the whole season of Never Have I Ever in two days. We absolutely loved it and my daughter really wants other series to watch that are similar (cute teen dramas that are well produced). If anyone has any suggestions, I’d be grateful!
    • We also watched season 9 of Married at First Sight. This show is total guilty pleasure for me. It is ridiculous—and I love it!
  • I only finished one book this week
    • I listened to The Dead Boy’s Club. It had an interesting twist element that teen readers will most likely LOVE!
  • We made some junk art! I wrote a whole post on it because I love it so much. Check out that post to see our first three creations, but we did two more yesterday that I’m even more proud of. Maybe I’ll have a monthly junk art post to update everyone on them? Or should I just always include them in my Sunday Posts? What do you guys think?
  • We found a puppy! We will be bringing him home next Saturday because he’s still too young to leave his mama. I’m SO excited for this new little floof!! It’s a little different for us this time because we’re not adopting—it was actually really hard to find a dog to adopt right now because everyone wants a puppy. Our two current dogs are both Australian Shepherd mixes (very Aussie mixes) and we’ve always thought about the idea of getting a purebred Aussie, but we’ve always been hesitant to buy from a breeder instead of adopting. This pup seemed like a perfect in-between though. We’re getting him from an Amish family who has the two Aussie parents on the family farm. They’re definitely not a puppy mill or even breeders–I’m guessing they probably believe in nature taking its course as far as pups are concerned. We don’t have papers or anything, but that’s just fine with us—that wasn’t our reasoning with wanting an Aussie. Anyway, I’m super excited. Here’s the pic from the site we found him on (we haven’t settled on a name yet, but it won’t be Bob  🙂  ):

    I am squealing over here! That puppy is so sweet and cute. I second what Danielle says. We need pup pics! I heard good things about Never Have I Ever. I haven’t watched any TV since Dec, so I have no recs, but glad you both enjoyed it.

  3. Sophie

    OMG you got a puppy!!!!!!!! And I am going to check your junk art post as you ahve me intrigued Nicole! I love art in general and will post a “make your own funko pop” tomorrow so …LOL

  4. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Awwwww!!! He’s so cute! My sister just got two puppies herself back on Mother’s Day and I today I finally get to see them! They’re labs and the pictures are adorable that she’s sent! But puppies are a lot of work…as she’s discovering with two…and a near 11-month old baby! Her husband is working to train the puppies like he did with his first lab but they’re both realizing two might not have been the best idea! Lol!

    Enjoy the puppy (when he comes home to you) and the break to your TBR pile! Happy Reading this week!

    Here’s my StS

    Have a GREAT day!

    The events of this week have been sad and disturbing!

    Sooo happy you found a puppy, and oh my goodness I’m overloaded by cuteness! I love animals so I’m happy to hear he didn’t come from an unloving puppy mill, but from people who care. Can’t wait to see more photos of this cute little guy!

    Oh what a cutie! I hope he turns out to be an awesome addition to the family- I’m sure he will. Looks like an adorable ball of fluff. 🙂

    Stay safe and be well in these crazy times…

    This probably isn’t helpful, but to me it doesn’t matter how we get junk art content as long as we get it 😂 It was so fun seeing it though! I can’t wait to see what else you guys make!
    The pupper is the CUTEST thing EVER! And I agree, he doesn’t look like a Bob 😉 Lol.

  8. ShootingStarsMag

    Oh my goodness, your new puppy is adorable and I need all the pictures. And I think a post for your junk art every month would be awesome, but however you share it is fine! I just want to marvel at it. LOL
