Sunday Post: Book Pre-order Campaigns & Giveaways Galore – 10/31/21

October 31, 2021 Sunday Post 23

Sunday Post header

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):

  • Sick kiddo (and pup). So, last week Danielle was sick, but she was seeming better by Sunday … until her ear started to hurt that night. Yep, she had an ear infection to go along with her cold and her pink eye. Poor kid! She had to miss one more swim practice Monday morning, but then she was able to go back after school. It’s really thrown a wrench into the end of her final swim season, though. And then Digit got neutered, so I had to keep an extra eye on him this week.
  • Danielle’s final high school swim meet. Danielle swam in her very last high school meet yesterday, their Conference meet. It was very exciting—their team won after the coach strategically changed their relay teams around for the final race. They sacrificed getting a first place relay for getting both second and third, which won them the meet. We were worried Danielle wasn’t going to get best times because she still hasn’t completely recovered from her cold (and hasn’t built her strength back up after missing a week of practices), but she did manage a PR in a couple of her races and was only off the other one by a tenth of a second. And since she was part of one of the relay teams that won them the meet (and got her best time in that race), it was a fitting end to her high school swim journey!
  • Writing. I’m considering jumping into NaNoWriMo, but not starting with a new project. We’ll see…
  • What I Read:
    • I read The Lost Language by Claudia Mills, Daughter of the Deep by Rick Riordan, Chlorine Sky by Mahogany L. Browne, and Me (Moth) by Amber McBride.
    • I continued listening to The Only Plane in the Sky: An Oral History of September 11, 2001 by Garrett M. Graff.
  • What I Watched:
    • I watched the first two episodes of Squid Game. It’s pretty intense, but I’m definitely intrigued and will keep watching.
    • I’ve also continued watching The Amazing Race. Still watching this.

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

    Awe, poor Danielle. I am happy to hear she was able to compete in the final meet though and a PR too. Look at that! Hope Digit is healing well. I don’t think we ever had a male dog. Do their temperaments change when they are neutered?

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      Yeah, I felt so bad for her – it was just one thing after another. I’ll let you know how I like the ending for Squid Game. I have a feeling it’s going to take me a while to get through it since I have to be really paying attention to the TV while I watch because of the subtitles. I’m used to mindless TV that I can have on while I blog/comment. 🙂

    I was sick at one point in October, and my sister was sick about a week ago. Not fun! I hope that Danielle is starting to feel better. I’m not officially doing NaNo, because no way I can hit 50k but I am thinking about working on a novel or something…we’ll see. I’m up and down on what I have motivation for these days.

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      My only problem with watching Squid Game is that I actually have to pay attention to it. I can’t just sit and blog or comment while it’s playing because I have to read the subtitles. So I haven’t gotten very far, but I’m liking it so far!

      • S. J. Pajonas

        I don’t do anything else while watching tv anymore. I used to multitask while watching and found that I never really remembered what happens in the show. I decided to stop a few years ago and now I retain so much more!
