It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (September 25): 09/25/17

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (August 31)
Hosted by Kathryn of Book Date.

Saturday we headed out to Dell'Osso Farms to set up our Girl Scout Troop scarecrow. This year's theme is "where in the world." We chose to do Moana. A couple spots down, a Boy Scout Troop did Maui. We probably won't win but the scarecrow is a great team building exercise for us. We run a multilevel troop and have girls ranging in ages from five to fourteen.

Setting up Moana

Voting begins once the pumpkin patch opens. It's part of a ride and riders get a chance to vote.

The scarecrow project looks fun. Nice variety of books this week.

The scarecrow project is fun. Last year we only let the older girls work on it. This year we opened it up to everyone. It was a lot more fun with everyone involved.

The Lost Kingdom of Bamarre looks interesting, as does Saints and Misfits. I hope you enjoy your books this week!

In all honesty, I'm not sure I'll be able to finish The Lost Kingdom of Bamarre/ It's coming due this Friday.

Building a scarecrow sounds like fun. I like your variety of books too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

It is fun. It's our second year of participating in the contest. Thanks for visiting.

Nothing says fall more than a good scarecrow. It looks like fun!

Enjoy your week...I liked Bad Housekeeping.

The scarecrow contest is something we started participating in last year. I expect we'll do it again next year. I've only just started Bad Housekeeping.

Bill @ Especially Books

All Our Wrong Todays sound like it might be interesting. I'll probably add it on Goodreads. I really enjoy the Lumberjanes graphic novels too. Great selection of books!



Comment #12: Monday, September 25, 2017 at 10:29:00

Pussreboots

All Our Wrong Todays is a page turner. I hope you do add it to your GoodReads. I adore the Lumberjane books.

Greg

Aw, what a neat activity! Love this time of year.

All Our Wrong Todays looks like something I might like, I've seen that one around a few times.



Comment #14: Wednesday, September 26, 2017 at 19:10:00

Pussreboots

Yes. You should read All Our Wrong Todays. I'm sure you'd like it.

I remember how much fun it was for our Boy Scouts to make scarecrows at the county fair. I bet the Girl Scouts had a great time too.

I'm eager to read Juana and Lucas.



Comment #16: Wednesday, September 26, 2017 at 19:10:00

Pussreboots

Juana and Lucas is a charming book. It's somewhere between a picture book and a graphic novel. Goodreads says it's the first of a series but I haven't seen any further information about more books being planned.

I used to enjoy Kinsella. Haven't read her recently.



Comment #18: Wednesday, September 26, 2017 at 19:15:00

Pussreboots

I just felt a need for her humor in the stress of the move.

Those cozies look so good. I have them on my TBR. Enjoy and have a great week!



Comment #20: Wednesday, September 27, 2017 at 19:18:00

I've read through a ton of cozies this year, especially this summer.

Susan @ The Book Bag

What a wonderful variety of books here on your list. I hate to admit it but I don't think I've ever read a Sophie Kinsella book. How does that happen? Have a wonderful week and happy reading.



Comment #22: Monday, October 02, 2017 at 19:59:00

Pussreboots

Five years ago I didn't think I would ever read one of her books either. Then a friend of mine gave me one of her standalone novels, Remember Me? and I was hooked.

Sarah

A Moana inspired scarecrow sounds so awesome. Win or lose, it was an awesome experience for the girls and that's all that matters. I'm hoping to get a volume or two of Lumberjanes when I go to the city in a couple of weeks, I've been eyeing it for too long and need to finally read it.



Comment #24: Monday, October 02, 2017 at 20:03:00

Pussreboots

The Girls (and parents) had fun putting the scarecrow together. I hope you do pick up some Lumberjanes. It's a fun series. I just finished book three.

Looks like you have some great reading on your list. Thanks for stopping by Girl Who Reads

Last week was a good week of reading but I got so busy with other things that I completely fell behind in answering comments.
