Sunday Post: Plans? What Plans?

Good morning on a Sleepy Sunday from a very tired grandmother. I spent all day yesterday with my three grandchildren. They live two hours from me so in addition to driving four hours, I played all day with three-year-old twins and a seven-year-old. I’m exhausted! Many of the things I had planned for the blog this week didn’t happen, but such is life. “Always plan for the fact that no plan ever goes according to plan.”–Simon Sinek.

LAST WEEK ON BONNIE READS AND WRITES

On Monday I gave a sneak peek at books I reviewed for the August edition of Historical Novels Review.

On Thursday I reviewed BAKE: My Best-Ever Recipes for the Classics by Paul Hollywood.

On Friday I reviewed A Rip Through Time by Kelley Armstrong

Self-Published Saturday was postponed due to the abovementioned visit to the grandkids.

NEXT WEEK ON BONNIE READS AND WRITES

Monday I will review A Dress of Violet Taffeta for an Austenprose Book Tour.

Tuesday I have two book tours: The Girl from Jonestown for Bookouture (formerly called “A Home for the Lost.”) and To Kiss A Wallflower for Austenprose.

Thursday I will review Dark Blue Waves for HFVBT (Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours)

Self-Published Saturday I will spotlight and/or review self-published books.

BOOKS I RECEIVED THIS WEEK

Big Book Haul This Week:

NETGALLEY

When I saw that the author of The World According to Garp had a new novel out, I jumped on it!

I noticed something while reading this that I can’t wait to share with you.

HISTORICAL NOVEL SOCIETY

The reading has begun for the November issue of Historical Novels Review. I have three books so far:

A Christian Novel about a family that starts a boarding house in frontier-era Nebraska.

Summer 1968. Jack devises a plan to keep his older brother Pete from getting drafted.

A Regency Romance with a “family secrets” vibe.

WHAT I’M WATCHING

I’m loving The Lincoln Lawyer! A lawyer fresh out of rehab inherits the practice of a recently murdered friend and does business mostly out of the back of his Lincoln.

Have a great week everyone, and I hope all your plans work out (unless you’d rather they don’t!)

WHAT’S FOR DINNER?

I thought it might be fun to add my Sunday dinner plans. I have some leftover rotisserie chicken, some mushrooms, and a lot of fresh broccoli florets, so I’m currently looking for a recipe for chicken and broccoli casserole (no rice or pasta).

  1. Oh that does sound tiring lol but great fun too I’m sure! Glad you had a great day with the grandkids! I just went over and read your review for A Rip in Time, as I’ve been curious about that one (and generally like her books). Great review! In spite of the issues I might have to get that one. I’m still trying to finish her Rockton series…
