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):
- Oops! I forgot to update this section (and the books I read). If you already saw my Sunday Post, sorry. Apparently, I just completely ignored this top section when I updated the post this week? And I just noticed now. (At 2:30 in the afternoon.) Yikes!
- What I Read
- I finished reading Girl Giant and the Monkey King by Van Hoang. Then I read When Stars Are Scattered by Victoria Jamieson, Daughters of Jubilation by Kara Lee Corthron, Ada Twist and the Perilous Pants by Andrea Beaty, and Home Sweet Motel by Chris Grabenstein. After that, I started the sequel to that last book, Beach Party Surf Monkey.
- I finished listening to The Truth Project by Dante Medema and started listening to Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech.
- What I Watched:
- We’ve been watching most of the Winter Olympics. Well, okay, I scan through a lot—but there are parts of it I really love!
- Danielle and I are still watching season 3 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
- My mom and I continued watching Lost in Space (we’re on season 2 now). This show is sometimes beyond ridiculous, but it’s still entertaining.
- Then, for a little, change of pace, my mom and I started watching Locke and Key. I’m loving it so far – very mysterious and creepy!
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:

Okay, a couple more since last week. Thank you, publishers, for these great books. All of these are authors I already know I love and I can’t wait to read their upcoming releases!
- The Ogress and the Orphans by Kelly Barnhill. (I couldn’t find the info on the cover artist for this one.)
- Ellen Outside the Lines by A.J. Sass. Cover illustration is by Ana Hinojosa.
- Year on Fire by Julie Buxbaum.
Very excited to read this timely book about being Asian American during COVID, New From Here by Kelly Yang. This adorable cover was created by Maike Plenzke. Thanks, Simon & Schuster!
I listened to Coyote Sunrise and loved it so much I just had to buy a copy. And then, of course, I needed to earn free shipping, so I got a few (okay, seven) friends to keep the first book company.
I won Lemon Drop Falls from Kidlit 411 (and author, Heather Clark). Thank you!!
