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):

  • Blog Redesign. As you may have noticed, I’ve changed the blog design a little bit. I found out that my Tweak Me theme was extremely old and wasn’t really supported anymore, so I upgraded to Tweak Me V2. The theme is super modifiable, so I could have kept my old backgrounds, but I decided I liked this cleaner look. I used colors from the old design to make the change less jarring. There were lots of settings to configure so it took a bit of work, but I’m really happy with how it turned out (though I may be making some more little changes as time goes on). What do you think? Any suggestions?
  • What I Read:
    • I read a manuscript from a new critique partner!
    • I finished reading Nightingale by Deva Fagan and then I started reading In Every Generation by Kendare Blake.
    • I continued listening to The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by Victoria Schwab.
  • What I Watched:
    • I got Noah and Danielle to start watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer with Me! We’ve only watched a few episodes, but I’m all about the nostalgia, especially since I’ve been reading In Every Generation (which has many of the old favorite characters and captures their voices so well!)
    • I watched the newest season of The Great British Baking Show. It’s always a fun watch!
    • Noah’s been watching Stranger Things, so I’ve seen parts of season 1 with him (I’d already seen it years ago, but I never watched season 3).

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

Book Haul:

For Review:

I received A Diary of the Plague Year by Elise Engler from Henry Holt & Co. I don’t review many adult titles, but this chronicle of 2020 in art was too intriguing to pass up.


I bought Frankenstein and The Picture of Dorian Gray so Danielle and I could read them together (she needs to read some more classics for her AP Lit class).

  1. I thought something was different here as I hopped over! I thought maybe it was my computer screen! Lol. It’s definitely a fresh look! I keep meaning to try to figure out something with my blog, but I have zero tech skills, and about zero patience for this side of technology, as I’m not good with it. Hence the same design for the last several years.

    Nice new reads! Those are all new to me ones but I hope you enjoy them! I can’t wait to read In Every Generation myself! I’m trying to work it into my queue as soon as possible! Happy Reading!

    Here’s my StS

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. I’m glad you mentioned the blog redesign because I was thinking things looked different but then I started doubting myself. I think it looks good, I like the cleaner minimal look and I agree, keeping some of the old colours helps make it stay the same. I know I’ve not gone to the wrong site. I love you’re watching Buffy, I did a rewatch at the start of covid and it was brilliant.

    • I’ve had that happen when I go to a blog and I think, “Wait, this is different, right?” Yeah, I definitely didn’t want the blog to look unfamiliar to people when they jump by, but this gives the same feel with a little cleaner look. I’m liking it a lot!

    • It was actually less daunting than I expected it to be. There were a few settings that I had to figure out (especially things that I had to change in multiple places so that everything would mesh together well), but it wasn’t as overwhelming as I thought it was going to be. Of course, I wasn’t doing a true overhaul and I stuck with colors that echoes my old site, so that helped me narrow things down.
