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):
- I kept going with my marathon training, including a 7-mile run, my longest yet. I’m getting back to my pre-COVID routine.
- I’ve been doing more writing on a new project! My agent is sending my last one out on submission very soon, so wish me luck!
- What I Read
- I somehow didn’t manage to read anything this week.
- I finished listening to Bravely by Maggie Stiefvater and then started listening to The Scorpio Races.
- What I Watched:
- We watched a bit more of season 5 of Angel.
- We watched more First Kill, but it’s kind of losing us. Danielle and I have discussed and we feel like we’re just not that invested in the romance. I know it’s supposed to be a Romeo and Juliet retelling, but the instalove has definitely gotten in the way.
- Danielle was in serious Heartstopper withdrawal, so we ended up watching Love, Simon and Love, Victor. Highly recommend Love, Victor – I mean, Danielle’s still sneaking in random rewatches of Heartstopper episodes, but we also happily binged several episodes of Victor in a row, and we’re now on season 2.
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:
