Sunday Post: The Best of Intentions

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted at the @ Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. See the rules here.

Where does the time go? I had a busy work week last week so I didn’t get all the books read that I planned. Sometimes the best-laid plans just do not work out. I’m going on vacation part of next week and will have more time to catch up on my reading. I’m going to try and set a less ambitious schedule for the next couple of weeks anyway because I’ve got several reviews due for the Historical Novel Society in June. I won’t be able to publish those until August 1st, per their policy, but I still have some that I did back in March for the May issue that I haven’t shared yet, and at least one of those will go up this week.


Monday I did a blog tour and book review of The Adoption for Bookouture

Tuesday I reviewed Freedom or Death, the fourth book in the Juche series by Adria Carmichael.

Thursday I posted a review of The Commandant’s Daughter that I did for the May issue of Historical Novel Society.

And for Self-Published Saturday I reviewed A Class Coveted by Susie Murphy.


On Sunday of course is Sunday Spotlight.

On Monday I will post a review of Drawn by the Current by Jocelyn Green

On Tuesday I will post a review of The Eleventh Commandment by Mary F. Burns. I wrote this one back in March for the May issue of Historical Novel Society’s magazine, Historical Novels Review.

On Thursday I will post a review of The Girl from Lamaha Street, which was originally planned for last week but time got the better of me.

For Self-Published Saturday I will spotlight some self-published books.


I must be in the mood for baking because I requested and received two cookbooks: BAKE by Paul Hollywood and Everyday Cake by Polina Chesnakova.

Then I picked up a novel about a young pie maker who gets a magical chance to see how her life would have worked out if she had made different choices. It’s called The Magic of Lemon Drop Pie by Rachel Linden. I must have been hungry when I made my Netgalley requests.

I was also approved for Nicholas Sparks’ new book Dreamland, which is not about food. So that’s one out of four.

EDITED to add that I received a 917-page book from Greenleaf Book Group. It’s called Gods of Deception and it’s huge. This one’s gonna take a while.

Have a great week everyone! Hopefully I’ll be able to get a lot of reading done over Memorial Day weekend.
