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):
- Writing: Still working hard on my latest draft!
What I Read:
- I finished reading The Witch Haven by Sasha Peyton Smith and then read The Dire Days of Willowweep Manor by Shaenon K. Garrity and Christopher J. Baldwin (and wrote reviews for them too!)
- I finished listening to The Midnight Library by Matt Haig (and reviewed it) and started listening to Shatter the Sky by Rebecca Kim Wells.
TV We Watched:
- The final season of Supernatural. We watched one episode this week, so we have two more to go!
- Agility. I told you guys last week that my husband made an agility teeter-totter, and I’ve been putting it (and the rest of our equipment) to good use! Digit wouldn’t go past the middle of the teeter in class (and usually wouldn’t do that with more than his two front paws), but he does great with it now! I actually have to lead him across so he goes slowly enough–he would jump right off in his excitement if I let him. I promised a video, so here you go…
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:
- Squirrel Do Bad by Stephan Pastis: Review & Giveaway
- Bite-Sized Reviews of The Witch Haven, The Midnight Library, The Renegades Series, and The Dire Days of Willowweep Manor
