Sunday Post: Shout-outs and Getting Back to Normal

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted here @ 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 rules here: Sunday Post

We got a really cool shout-out this week from Cinnabar Moth Publishing. In their weekly podcast, The Writer’s Triangle, they were talking about setting up author websites and how important they are. They used my site as an example of what a fledgling author can do while they are trying to get their name out there. They mentioned book reviews and a lot of what I do on this site. They gave us a lot of compliments.

The Youtube video is here if you want to listen. Bonnie Reads and Writes is mentioned at about 8:25.

So I am starting to sound like a broken record, but I was sick again this week, a majority of the week. This makes the third virus since mid-December. It’s never COVID, but the doctor told me there are about twelve different viruses going around out there. Hopefully, this is the last one. Once again I caught it after my grandkids visited. This time, I sent my husband to our other house in Bryson City while the kids were here so that at least one of us would be healthy. That plan worked. Here are some beautiful pictures he sent me while he was there:

Also, Indie Weekend has been neglected due to my illnesses in December and January. I am getting back to it in a big way next week, with more than one review.

Here’s to getting back to normal!


On Monday I did mini reviews of And Justice for Mall and Twice in a Lifetime.

On Thursday I reviewed Patches Through Time.

On Friday I participated in Book Blogger Hop.


I plan to participate in Top Ten Tuesday and Book Blogger Hop if time permits.

On Wednesday I will review Last Summer Boys by Bill Rivers.

On Friday I will review The Marriage Season as part of a blog tour for Rachel’s Random Resources.

And Indie Weekend resumes Friday through Sunday!


I hope you have a wonderful week!
