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):
Writing: I spent a lot of this week editing my latest manuscript based on feedback I’ve gotten. I’ve still got more work to do!
- What I Read:
- I read XOXO by Axie Oh and then started reading Paola Santiago and the Forest of Nightmares by Tehlor Kay Mejia.
- I continued listening to The Beast Player by Nahoko Uehashi.
- TV We Watched:
- Supernatural. Once my daughter got home from camp, we continued watching season 14.
- America’s Next Top Model. I realized I’d actually already watched a couple of seasons of this because a childhood friend’s daughter was in it. Funny that I didn’t remember until I got to that season. So, anyway, I kind of skipped through most of the episodes I’d already seen, and now I’m on season 18 of the show.
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:
- Nothing. I spent most of my free time writing and when I wasn’t writing I was being a zombie and watching TV.
