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):
We had some absolutely gorgeous weather this week, so we tried to spend a little bit of time outside. It’s supposed to snow again tomorrow, so we need to take advantage of it while we can!
- What I Read:
- I finished reading List of Ten by Halli Gomez (loved it—watch for my review and the author’s Top Ten Addictions on Tuesday).
- I read Get a Grip, Vivy Cohen! by Sarah Kapit and Moonglass by Jessi Kirby.
- I finished listening to Send Me Their Souls by Sara Wolf and then started listening to Salty, Bitter, Sweet by Mayra Cuevas.
- I’ve also been reading a friend’s manuscript for feedback.
- TV We Watched:
- Supernatural. We’re finally almost done with season 9. We haven’t been able to decide if we’re not really enjoying the second half of this season because we’re not watching it as often or if we’re not watching it as often because we’re not enjoying it as much. (Maybe both?)
- Blown Away. I’ve been enjoying this glass blowing competition show on Netflix.
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:
- Balancing Spending on the Blog, Making Money, and All the Moral Dilemmas that Go Along With It
- Rosie Loves Jack by Mel Darbon: Spotlight & Giveaway – Check out the author’s game of 2 Truths and a Lie!
