Sunday Post 17

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): Not much new to report this week, except that I’ll be heading out on vacation in Michigan (the UP) from the 21st – 28th, so I probably won’t update the blog during that time. Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post: The Mid-Year Book Freak-Out Tag The WIFYR Workshop Experience Bite-Sized Reviews of Kiss of the Royal, Fukusha Model Eight, and Neanderthal Opens the Door to the Universe Book Blogger Birthdays and Blogoversaries: Here are the birthdays and blogoversaries for the next two weeks! (Since I might not put up a Sunday Post next… Read more »

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): My oldest turned 16 on Monday! We celebrated Jade’s and my nieces’ and nephew’s birthdays on the 4th (my twin nieces were born 10 hours after Jade and my nephew is three years younger, but he was born on the 11th). My sister-in-law got a cake that said, “Happy birthday Jade, Krista, Molly, America, and Spencer.” It was pretty funny. I’ve been working on updating my rating system this week. (If you’re wondering why, read about it HERE.) Since I’ve been using worded ratings instead of star ratings, I added a little key to my sidebar. I’ve also been working… Read more »

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): This was a quiet week at home. Which was a good thing, since I ended up being sick with a nasty summer cold. Luckily, two of the three kids were at summer camp, and my older daughter was happy to be left mostly to her own (electronic) devices. The two of us did go see Incredibles 2 before I got sick, and we both really enjoyed it. She also got me watching My Hero Academia with her—we’re five episodes in at this point and while I don’t think I worship this anime quite as much as she does, it… Read more »

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’m back from the WIFYR writing conference, and it was really fantastic! I plan to write a few posts to tell you guys what I learned, but for now I’ll just tell you that it was fabulous to spend so much time with other writers and compare notes. And I gained some really valuable insights along the way! Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post: Bite-Sized Reviews of City of Bastards, Everless & Ice Wolves A Break in Our Regularly Scheduled Programming Some Changes Around Here Bite-Sized Reviews of Words in the… Read more »

Sunday Post 36

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): This week I’ve been working hard on critiques for the writing conference I’m headed out to next week. (We just got seven submissions for critique last week! Still, I kind of love critiquing, so it’s all good.) Speaking of which, I’ll probably be taking a hiatus from the blog from the 8th to the 14th. I want to focus on the conference and not stress about getting posts up. If I get anything up, I’ll consider it a bonus! Here’s what you may have missed on the blog this past week: LIFEL1K3 by Jay Kristoff: Review & Giveaway Sisters… Read more »

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 volunteered at my local Scholastic Warehouse sale this week and earned free books! I always love this sale because I get to be surrounded by books for hours and then I get to bring books home with me at the end of it all.  🙂 Check out the books I got in my book haul section below! Like everyone, I spent WAY too much time this week trying to figure out the GDPR thing. I think I’ve done enough to satisfy the legal requirements, but who knows really? Oh, and how annoying has it been to receive five… Read more »

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): Yesterday was my daughter Danielle’s final track meet of the season. It was a great way to end since she made it to the finals for her 200 and got second place on the high jump (4’2″ — which is pretty good considering the first time she ever tried the high jump was on Tuesday). Other than that, there’s not too much to report. I did pretty well with spending at least a couple of hours on my writing (almost) every day. I still need to finish up a few things for my students though (I’ll confess I took… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there! We’re celebrating Mother’s Day and my daughter’s birthday with family today. Should be a wonderful day! I decided to rename my Sunday Post so that people will realize that pre-order deals are included. I realized that only people who know me and care enough to come check out what’s going on with my week would click on my Sunday Post, and I want everyone to be able to find all the amazing pre-order deals that I have listed here! Hopefully this will help more people find them. (I’ve been including… Read more »

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 have absolutely nothing exciting to tell you about this week. I got more posts up (mostly because the end/beginning of the month has lots of specific posts that need to go up). Um, yeah. It was a week. If you are a YA or MG writer, you should seriously consider joining me at the WIFYR conference in June. I’m attending the Trent Reedy workshop, where we’ll be talking about revision and giving (and receiving) great feedback. It’s a great way to get feedback on the first 6000 words of your novel (and that beginning is so crucial!). Also, there are… Read more »

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 totally reorganized my bookcases yesterday! (And my closet, but who cares about that?) I was going to add some pictures here, but then I decided I’d give them their own post because my hours and hours of work deserve more attention. (And I need post ideas lately. LOL!) SO, check in Wednesday if you want to see pics. You’ll get a tiny preview in the Book Haul section, though.  🙂 Here’s what you may have missed on the blog this past week: The Queen of Bright and Shiny Things by Ann Aguirre: A Dual Review with Danielle Hammelef… Read more »
