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):
- A fantastic week!! I really wish I could tell you more, but I can’t yet, and it might be quite a while before I can. Suffice it to say, I’m in a really good mood right now!
What I Read This Week:
- I finished reading Skandar and the Unicorn Thief by A.F. Steadman then read Serwa Boateng’s Guide to Vampire Hunting by Roseanne A. Brown.
- I finished listening to Alone by Scott Sigler, then started listening to Valentina Salazar Is Not a Monster Hunter
by Zoraida Córdova.
What I Watched:
- My mom and I continued watching Stranger Things. We’re currently watching season 3.
- I watched the first couple of episodes of Travelers on Netflix. I’m very intrigued!
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:

Melissa Albert stopped in at my Barnes & Noble to pick up an order and told me that we have signed copies of her newest book, OUR CROOKED HEARTS, on the shelf. Of course, I needed to buy one!
My agent, Deborah Warren @ East/West Literary, sent all of her clients EVERYTHING WILL BE OK as a gift. She represented Anna Dewdney up until her death in 2016, and this, Anna’s final book, has been published in tribute to her.
