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):
Once again, I’m short on time this week, so this is going to be an abbreviated post.
- Working – Things are still going great with my job at Barnes & Noble. Can I just tell you how much I love being able to point people to my favorite books? I get to help decide which books get turned out and which ones get put onto tables. And then I also get to write Shelftalkers for my favorites. It’s a fantastic feeling every time I see someone buy a book I’ve recommended!!
- Marathon Training – I ran 20 miles this past week, which is the longest training run I’ll do before the marathon. 20 miles! Insanity!
- Writing – I’ve been working on a lot of writing stuff, including adapting the first MG book I wrote into verse. And researching some marketing stuff, just in case … (Yes, this not being able to talk about things that are going on is killing me.)
- I also just so happened to take a picture of this nice gap on my Barnes & Noble middle grade shelf where a book would go if an author just happened to have the last name Hewitt. You know, just in case …
What I Read This Week:
- I read Where the Watermelons Grow by Cindy Baldwin.
- I finished listening to Valentina Salazar Is Not a Monster Hunter by Zoraida Córdova and then listened to The Honeys by Ryan La Sala.
What I Watched:
- I’ve mostly been watching NEW GIRL this week. It’s a fun show that I don’t have to think about much.
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:
