It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (July 24): 07/24/17
On the fifteenth we moved out of our home for the last thirteen years. It was a grueling move and we didn't have phone or internet until Wednesday. That mean's that this post covers two weeks of reading and reviewing.

What a busy lady you have been - plus you got so much reading accomplished! Amazing! I'll be checking out some of your reviews! Thank you for sharing!
Comment #2: Monday, July 24, 13:57:00
When we weren't moving stuff, cleaning stuff, or unpacking stuff, there wasn't anything else to do but read. So we read.
Comment #3: Monday, July 24, 2017 at 03:09:53
Some interesting looking and entertaining books. Being without the internet is both good and bad! Hope the move wasn't too exhausting.
Comment #4: Monday, July 24, 14:05:00
Normally I don't mind being without the internet but it was a time when we needed to get messages from contractors and our new place has almost no cell reception. Nor did we have our phone. It was very frustrating only just because I had to be in contact.
Comment #5: Monday, July 24, 2017 at 04:15:59
Glad you're back online! Sorry the move was so crazy but I'm glad you seem to be more sorted now.
Everyone seems to be loving THUG. It's just sitting on my TBR... One day!
Comment #6: Monday, July 24, 2017 at 14:09:00
I will breathe easier when my home is on the market. Move The Hate U Give to the top of your TBR.
Comment #7: Monday, July 24, 2017 at 08:44:16
I used to love reading Wendy Mass books to my tween girl a few years back. Finally had us in stitches.
Comment #8: Monday, July 24, 2017 at 14:12:00
I still need to read 11 Birthdays before I get to Finally.
Comment #9: Monday, July 24, 2017 at 08:49:21
We never realize how dependent we are on the phone and internet until we are without is for a day or more. Glad things are going well.
Comment #10: Monday, July 24, 2017 at 14:20:00
Were it not for the contractors we were expecting calls from or needing to call, I wouldn't have minded being without phone and internet.
Comment #11: Monday, July 24, 2017 at 09:24:14
How great to have the first move done...and I guess it will be a while before you move again. Another house down the road?
Those cozies look good...I like Cleo Coyle's books.
Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a great week.
Comment #12: Monday, July 24, 2017 at 14:27:00
The move ot the apartment is the halfway point in this move. We want to sell our house and buy a slightly bigger one. Once we move into that house, we'll be done.
Comment #13: Monday, July 24, 2017 at 10:09:08
There is a Jem and the Holograms book series? Woah.
Comment #14: Monday, July 24, 2017 at 14:33:00
Yes. It's written by Kelly Thompson.
Comment #15: Monday, July 24, 2017 at 10:34:36
You read a wonderful assortment of books. Come see my week here. Have a great week!
Comment #16: Monday, July 24, 2017 at 14:33:00
Thank you for stopping by.
Comment #17: Monday, July 24, 2017 at 18:45:28
Ugh, moving. Looks like you got a lot of reading done though! Have a great week :)
Comment #18: Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at 12:24:00
Now we seem to be in the hurry and wait stage of things. The painting that should have been done hasn't even started. Nor do we have a new start date.
Comment #19: Monday, July 24, 2017 at 18:59:30
Hope the move/ settling in is going well! Sentenced to Death could be good, looks like, and some of those graphic novels too. Race to the Bottom of the Sea too.
Comment #20: Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at 12:26:00
I enjoyed Sentenced to Death but the series seems to be hit or miss with readers. Some readers take issue with the protagonist's wealth and generally cluelessness with how the rest of the world lives. So far it hasn't stopped me from liking the series, though I would never be friends with the main character in real life.
I'm thirty pages into Race to the Bottom of the Sea and I'm not sure where it's going.
Comment #21: Monday, July 24, 2017 at 23:40:09
I've heard quite a lot about This is How it Always Is and that cover is gorgeous!
Comment #22: Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at 13:54:00
I liked This is How it Always Is but I wanted more from it.
Comment #23: Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at 07:44:02
I'm so impressed with how much you read despite the move!
Comment #24: Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at 13:56:00
There wasn't much else to do besides read when we weren't moving stuff, cleaning stuff, or unpacking stuff.
Comment #25: Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at 19:27:39
Oh my! You read a crazy number of books!
Comment #26: Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at 17:18:00
It's about five books per week and some of them were very short books. Since we were without internet which is also our source of TV we had nothing to do but read when we were sick of packing, hauling, unpacking, or cleaning.
Comment #27: Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at 22:38:58
hat's an impressive show of read books. I hope the move went smoothly and your old house sparks a bidding war.
Comment #28: Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at 17:20:00
The house isn't ready yet for the market. It still needs some basic repairs and a fresh coat of paint. We'll see how it all pans out. Right now we're about a week behind schedule.
Comment #29: Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at 02:07:48
Wow that's a lot of books.
Comment #30: Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at 17:22:00
Reading was just about the only fun thing we had to do in the early days of the move.
Comment #31: Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at 13:52:21
That's a ton of books! I hope you enjoy them! I'm amazed at how much reading you do. Thanks for stopping by too!
Comment #32: Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at 17:23:00
We don't watch much TV and last week we couldn't watch any TV as we stream what we watch. Can't do that without an internet connection. So that left reading.
Comment #33: Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at 18:10:35
Good luck with everything related to your house move.
I love the Cleo Coyle books. I have to get back to reading that series. Enjoy your books!
Comment #34: Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at 17:25:00
My library had Coyle's books for audio downloads. They gave me something to listen to while I was cleaning the old place.
Comment #35: Thursday, July 27, 2017 at 11:01:41
That's a lot of books, even for two weeks of reading. Moving can be hell at times. I don't know if I could have survived without the internet, I'm thoroughly addicted to having everything at my fingertips. Have a great week!
Comment #36: Thursday, July 27, 2017 at 20:28:41
The move has been exhausting and at times frustrating but we've been through far worse moves.
Comment #37: Thursday, July, 27, 2017 at 22:19:36
I'm sorry you've had a rough go at moving. I hope getting the house on the market goes smoothly for you guys!
Comment #38: Thursday, July 27, 2017 at 20:31:00
Hopefully by mid August the house will be on the market.
Comment #39: Sunday, July 30, 2017 at 18:30:17
I'm glad there was an explanation for that many reviews. I like your current crop of books with the cozies and more. I will be watching for a couple of those reviews. (Now off to check some of the current reviews.) Hope this past week was good. I am a week behind visiting so you will (hopefully) get two visits from me this week. :-)
Comment #40: Sunday, July 30, 2017 at 16:22:00
I'm changing my review format a little with different days of the week devoted to a genre. Mystery reviews will be posted on Wednesdays.
