Sunday Post: Book Pre-order Campaigns & Giveaways Galore – 2/13/22

Sunday Post header

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 birthday! Friday was my birthday, and my husband made brisket on the smoker. So good! I also got some lovely gifts, including three bookish tees I absolutely love…

And then my daughters made me this adorable glasses-holder fox! (They made this guy from scratch, including all the cutting and painting.) Isn’t he super cute?

  • What I Read
    • I finished reading  Kingdom of Secrets by Christyne Morrell then started Girl Giant and the Monkey King by Van Hoang.
    • I finished listening to The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise by Dan Gemeinhart (LOVED it!) and then started listening to The Truth Project by Dante Medema.
  • What I Watched:
    • We’ve been catching some of the Winter Olympics. The Mixed Snowboarding Final was especially dramatic!
    • Danielle and I are still watching season 3 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. 
    • I’ve been watching season 2 of Cheer. It’s kind of like watching a car crash since everything seems to be imploding.
    • My mom and I are watching the first season of Lost in Space. Sometimes you wonder what the characters are thinking, but it’s good entertainment.

Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:

Also, don’t forget, you can still enter my blogoversary giveaway!

Book Haul:


Once again, I’ve forgotten to post my NetGalley approvals for quite a while, so I have a lot to post! Thank you, publishers, for these books. I’ve got lots of great reading ahead!

  • Trusting True North by Gina Lenko. The gorgeous cover was created by Richard Erickson.
  • Ballad & Dagger by Daniel José Older with a cover illustrated by Irvin Rodriguez.
  • Goth Girl, Queen of the Universe by Lindsay S. Zrull. Another amazing cover, this one by Irvin Rodriguez.
  • Bad Things Happen Here by Rebecca Barrow. I couldn’t find the cover designer for this one–if you know who it is, let me know!
  • Love, Decoded by Jennifer Yen. I couldn’t find the artist for this one either, and I really want to give credit for this cute cover.
  • The Stars Between Us by Cristin Terrell. Cover artist: Monet Alyssa
  • This Vicious Grace by Emily Thiede. The cover artist for this one was Kemi Mai.
