As you know, it was sweltering at home and in the car in my last Sunday Post. The A/C at home was fixed first, and the car was finally fixed on Thursday this week, so I am back to “Cool Runnings.” (I miss John Candy.)
Doug and I finished our June short story (a little late) for the 2022 Short Story Challenge. The theme is folklore, and we’ve found lots to write about. I have found that as opposites we make a great writing team, because each person’s weaknesses are usually the other person’s strengths.
I buckled down and got a lot of reading done and got caught up on most of my Netgalley books. Of course, then I had to request more. Right? So I have a nice book haul to report.
LAST WEEK ON BONNIE READS AND WRITES:
Sunday I reviewed Suspects by Danielle Steel
Monday I reviewed The Beach Trap by Ali Brady
Tuesday I posted another short story my husband Doug and I finished called “Sweet Azalea.”
For Self-Published/Indie Saturday, I reviewed Amanda in France by Darlene Foster and did an interview with Darlene.
NEXT WEEK ON BONNIE READS AND WRITES
Sunday I am doing a blog tour and book review of Outcast by Claire Voet
Tuesday I will participate in Top Ten Tuesday if time permits.
Wednesday I will review Secrets by Fern Michaels.
Friday I will participate in Book Blogger Hop if time permits and review The Guest List by Fern Michaels.
And on Self-Published Saturday I will review and/or Spotlight Self-Published books. (I’ve got two of my grandkids next weekend (the twins!)) so I will post when I can.
NEW NETGALLEY BOOKS THIS WEEK
What Song The Sirens Sang by Simon R. Green
This is the third book in the Gideon Sable series, and I’ve read the first two. This is magical realism at its best.
This is Book 3 in a cozy mystery series about a “senior citizen sleuth.” That hooked me because I’m going to qualify for the senior discounts soon myself.
I don’t usually request romances unless they have some other aspect that interests me, and this one is a historical romance and revolves around a Duke looking for a fake fiance. I wanted something light, and this sounds lighthearted, and possibly funny–I hope.
Christmas in July! Christmas books are starting to come out on Netgalley and I love it. This is a historical Christmas mystery from Anne Perry.
WHAT’S FOR DINNER
I roasted a chicken yesterday, so it’s leftover chicken and stuffing today! I tried to make low-carb stuffing for myself yesterday but decided that going forward I will just save up carbs elsewhere to have our real stuffing recipe. Sometimes you’ve got to have the real thing.
WHAT WE’RE WATCHING
Season 8 of Escape to the Chateau is now on Peacock. We love this series about a British couple who bought a French Chateau, and it’s amazing what they’ve done with it in eight years.
