Sunday Post: Spring has Sprung!

Spring is here! On this blog anyway. I’ve done my seasonal changing of the colors. Some of you may still be getting snow, but Spring will take over soon enough.

This week I got all my reviews for the May edition of Historical Novels Review (HNR), the magazine of the Historical Novel Society (HNS), in and on time! I have been working on some of those since January. That resulted in my not being able to post as much last week, but there will be seven reviews I can post later (after the May 1st publication date).

Here’s a look at the covers of all the books I reviewed for the May edition of HNR.

I have been reading and reviewing as much as possible, so I have some reviews to post in the coming week.

Doug and I watched a really interesting show a couple of weeks ago on Apple TV. It’s called The Shining Girls. It is a crime/thriller that also includes alternate reality and time travel! It was excellent, and not easy to figure out. If you like time travel, thrillers, and puzzles, give this one a try. I liked it so much that I got the audiobook of the novel of the same name by Lauren Beukes, and a review will be along in a couple weeks after I finish listening to it.

Indie Weekend: I posted last week that I have paused new submissions for Indie Weekend until June so I can get caught up. If you are one of the authors whose books I have accepted for Indie Weekend, look for an email from me when I give you a firm date of when the review will be posted. If you don’t get an email from me by Wednesday, contact me at


On Friday I posted an excerpt from The Walk On for a blog tour sponsored by AME. I couldn’t put my review up because it was 3 stars and they require at least 4 for the tour. So they provided me with an excerpt and I will post the review later.

On Friday I also participated in Book Blogger Hop and answered the question: Do you Blog Daily?

On Saturday I reviewed Chronicles of the Golden City for Indie Weekend.


On Tuesday I will post my review of The Walk On.

I will participate in Top Ten Tuesday if time permits.

On Thursday, the 23rd, I will be highlighting some great deals on Louise Bélanger’s poetry collection, which is going on sale next week.

On Friday I will review The Metropolitan Affair and participate in Book Blogger Hop.

On Indie Weekend I will review Birds in Flight by Anni Taylor and The Hedge Witch and the Musical Poet by MJ Mallon.


This is a fascinating book about a Civil War era racehorse from whom twelve of horseracing’s thirteen Triple Crown winners are descended.

This is Book 3 of the Ice Cream Shop mysteries. I will have to check out the other two. Sometimes you just gotta read a good cozy.

This is the sixth Daniel Pitt novel, which can all be read as standalones. It is set in 1912 London. Daniel is working on a fraud case against a very wealthy philanthropist and Miriam becomes involved in the suffrage movement. I just love Anne Perry’s books.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

  1. Spring will have taken hold at home by the time I get back a week from today. I am glad that I missed winter, but it will be rainy and gloomy for a week at least. Lexington looks and sounds interesting, Bonnie. I agree, a good cozy every now and then is perfect, sometimes more often. Have a wonderful week.


  2. You are busy with special reading and reviews. I mostly do current releases with a wide range of genres. I read other books but don’t always do anything other than short Goodreads reviews for them. I’m ready for spring!

  3. It’s springlike here in California, but still snowing at home in Flagstaff. I hope this is the last snowstorm. I will be reading Murder in Postscript soon. I will be getting Apple TV when I get home (for Ted Lasso) and I’ll also check out The Shining Girls.
