It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (March 20): 03/20/17
It's been a few years since I've participated in the weekly What Are You Reading meme. In the time I've been away, the meme has been passed on to Kathryn of Book Date.
Before I get into my reading, let me introduce you to my new domain. I've dropped the .pair and now I'm here at pussreboots.com. I'm still offering a book review each and every day as well as bookish articles.
Besides the new domain, I'm busy making the older reviews prettier. You'll notice the larger image for newer reviews and articles. I am introducing that look and feel to the older articles. It's basically a big spring clean for the old blog in its new home.
What I read last week:
It's not been a stellar week of reading because I've been so busy getting my new domain up and running.
What I'm reading:
This year my goals are to read through my personal collection (and do some shelf weeding) and to stay more current with recently published books. So none of what I've listed this week are review copies or library books.

You certainly read well even though you think you were light on reading! I liked Allegiant, I haven't got to #5 in the Olympus series but read up to and including #4.
All the best for your spring clean and new look of your blog.
Comment #2: Sunday, March 19, 2017 at 21:24:45
Thank you for stopping by. The worst of the spring clean will be done this week. I like the Magnus Chase books better than the Heroes of Olympus series but I've had this book on my TBR for ages and want to finish the series.

Ooh, I am intrigued by Mosquitoland, sounds great - enjoy!
Comment #4: Sunday, March 19, 2017 at 22:51:48
From the little bit of Mosquitoland I've read so far (I'm on page 21), the book uses a variety of different narrative styles from straight narrative to epistolary to movie script. In this regard it reminds me of The Beautiful and the Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald — but as a road trip narrative.
Comment #5: Monday, March, 20 2017 at 01:58:46
That sounds very cool - I do like it when authors freshen things up like that :)
Comment #6: Sunday, March 19, 2017 at 23:03:59
So far it is in deed cool. I hope it holds out.
Comment #7: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 02:26:47
It looks great! You've certainly done more reading than me this week :) Have a great week :)
Comment #8: Sunday, March 19, 2017 at 23:32:22
When I first wrote the post, I was still reading Saturdays at Sea. The previous two books are from last weekend when I was at a hotel while new flooring was being put in at home. No where to go and nothing to do but read! I finished it though just before publishing.
Comment #9: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 09:07:17
I did the same with my blog. New domain name and revamped it. Feels good, doesn't it? Makes me more eager to blog. You're reading some good books. I'm curious about Mosquitoland because I saw it on my son's summer reading list. Have a great reading week and thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #10: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 07:54:07
I'm only about twenty pages into Mosquitoland but I am enjoying it so far.
Comment #11: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 10:20:09
I've been wanting to read The Blood of Olympus for a while. I hope you enjoy your books!
My It's Monday! What Are You Reading? post.

Lovely new domain. I think you read a lot. My own reading pace has slowed to a crawl since the first of the year. Come see my reading week here. Happy reading!
Comment #14: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 08:04:03
Nearly a week between books is slow for me. But I do admit to reading a lot of books.
Comment #15: Monday, March, 20 2017 at 10:36:08
Enjoy your new space and the goal of reading from your shelves.
Thanks for visiting my blog...and have a great week!
Comment #16: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 08:11:08
Thanks! The goal to read my own shelves is because we're probably moving. Packing, moving, and unpacking books is always a chore.
Comment #17: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 12:24:00
Good range of genres!

Happy you've returned to our book world! Great idea to post a review every day. I could do that with just the reviews I've already written and not run out for ten years.
Comment #20: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 09:48:24
Thank you for the warm welcome back. Like you I have reviews written, waiting to post. I've worked through much of my backlog of posts but still could continue at my current pace through mid October without needing to actually read a book. Since the reading though is so much fun, I don't plan on doing that.
Comment #21: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 14:29:54
Sometimes changing your blog around and giving it a refresh can totally fire up your inspiration and get you excited about blogging again! :-) My dad is an absolute cat nut who's also a train fanatic, so that book about the Railway Cat sounds like a perfect book for him!
Comment #22: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 11:59:42
Yes. Absolutely. He would love this book.
Comment #23: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 16:52:05
blog is looking good. I need to finish the Percy Jackson series so that I can dive into the Heroes of Olympus series. Enjoy your week!
Comment #24: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 14:59:52
Have fun finishing the Percy Jackson books. He shows up in the Heroes of Olympus series too and might make an appearance in the third of the Magnus Chase books.
Comment #25: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 18:52:07
Your books look good. Enjoy!
Comment #26: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 17:18:45
They are — although I am struggling with From Here to Eternity.
Comment #27: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 19:13:07
Welcome back to this meme! I love it. It's one I do even when I don't blog as much. Looks like you are working on some great books! :)
Comment #28: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 17:21:19
Sometimes the memes just take too much of my time and I need a break. But it's good to be back.

Sam @ WLABB
I loved Mosquitoland, and I am a fan of Arnold's writing. I really want to read The Last of August. I thought the first book in this series was great. Good luck with the site reboot. My daughter redesigned WLABB this summer, so I know it can take some time.
Comment #30: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 17:27:39
I am enjoying Mosquitoland. I'll probably still be reading it by next Monday. It doesn't seem like a book that wants to be rushed.
The most urgent parts of the redesign are almost done. Then comes the longer but more fun bits, like making new images.
Comment #31: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 20:50:47
Welcome back! Spring cleaning is never exactly fun, but I'm sure all that work is going to pay off in the end. ^_^
I've been saying I'll read through my personal library every year for the past four or five years. I'm determined to make this the REAL YEAR.
Comment #32: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 17:56:05
The Spring Cleaning in the real world and the digital world needs to be done. Both are coming along nicely. My read my own shelf plan is coming along too. I've read 39 off my shelf so far, which is slightly more than half of all my reading this year.
Comment #33: Monday, March, 20, 2017 at 20:54:44
Welcome back to IT'S MONDAY!!
Looks like you had a good week.
Thanks for coming by my blog.
Comment #34: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 18:03:02
Thank you for stopping by. It's good to be back.
Comment #35: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 21:15:58
I want to read about Felix the cat, any cat book works for me.
Comment #36: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 18:22:11
You can get a copy through The Book Depository.
Comment #37: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 21:22:25
How did you like Allegiant? Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)
Comment #38: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 18:22:11
It wasn't my cup of tea.
Comment #39: Monday, March, 20, 2017 at 21:25:47
Welcome back! :) Allegiant I haven't finished but Saturdays at Sea- nice to see that that one is out. I didn't know book 5 was already out.
The Last of August looks like a good one also.
Comment #40: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 18:37:27
Saturdays at Sea came out at the start of the month. I'll be posting a review of it tomorrow. The Last of August I hope to finish soon.
Comment #41: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 21:33:14
Welcome back, and thanks for visiting my blog today! You've got a great and varied reading list - I think I'd like Felix the Railway Cat.
Comment #42: Monday, March 20, 2017 at 18:41:33
You can get Felix via Book Depository. It's definitely worth getting.

Wow! That's a lot of good books you have there! I hope you enjoy them all!
Here’s my It's Monday! What Are You Reading? !

Thank you for stopping by.

Congratulations on the new domain. Even though it was taking up a lot of your time you still managed to get through quite a few books. Thank you for visiting my blog. Hope your week goes well!
Comment #46: Tuesday, March 21, 2017 at 07:29:36
I read while my computer is talking to my host's server.

Hi 'Pussreboots'! So nice to see you back in this meme and thanks for stopping by to say hi to me.

Thank you for the warm welcome back. I'm glad you like the bright colors of my site. Felix the Cat is really worth reading. You can get a copy through Book Depository. I stopped doing tours about five years ago and last year completely gave up on taking review copies. Both of those parts of book blogging were too stressful and hard to manage.
Comment #49: Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at 20:29:31
I really want to read that Charlotte Holmes series. I love that cover too! I've been wanting to read Mosquitoland too! Have a great week. :)
Comment #50: Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at 17:42:02
I just finished The Last of August. This series is a very different take on the Sherlock Holmes stories and characters. GoodReads has a listing for a third book in the series but they're not always the most reliable source. If they're correct, I will will certainly be reading book three.
Mosquitoland is good so far. I need to focus more on it, but I have Heroes of Olympus and Dark Jem demanding my attention first.
Comment #51: Saturday, April 01, 2017 at 19:53:31
Your reading week looked like it was still a good one! Although I'm sorry you didn't think it was productive.
I enjoyed the Divergent series and I like all the PJ Universe books! I hope you loved those two!
It was production on the blogging side even if I didn't finish as many books as I sometimes do. I have now finished both Divergent and Blood of Olympus and will get reviews posted as time permits.
