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. Working on revisions. It’s going well!
- What I Read:
- I read Amber & Clay by Laura Amy Schlitz and Dear Ugly Sisters: And Other Poems by Laura Mucha.
- 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’ve gotten all the way back to season 1 of The Amazing Race.
- And we finished season 11 of Married at First Sight.
