It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (October 09): 10/09/17
We are in the month count down to being completely moved out of the apartment. We're our house now but our stuff is now divided across three places: the house, the apartment, and storage. Our goal is to be out of the apartment by the 12th.

What unsettling times and you must wonder where you are and where your things are every so often. Enjoy your reading.
Comment #2: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 18:46:00
It's not so bad. Mostly I just want to be done with the apartment. It served its purpose but now I'm ready to be tucked into my new home.

Must be a crazy busy time for you guys! Hope all goes well. You have a nice eclectic mix of books- Race the Night looks interesting.
Comment #4: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 18:49:00
Race the Night is good. You should read it along with Watch the Sky. I doesn't matter which one you read first but they both make more sense when read together.

You've read a lot. Have a good week.
Comment #6: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 19:01:00
I'll be reading even more now that the CYBILs have started.
Comment #7: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 09:01:05
I hope your final move goes smoothly. You're reading a good variety of books. Have a great reading week!
Comment #8: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 19:03:00
We have a plan — which is better than what I can say for the move out of the condo to the apartment.
Comment #9: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 11:12:41
I keep telling myself that I should check out the local libraries now that I've moved. Then, I look at my shelves of unread books and change my mind. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #10: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 19:05:00
I waited five years to get a library card when we moved to the neighborhood. Now though it's an inseparable part of my reading.
Comment #11: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 12:27:39
I enjoyed Bad Housekeeping...and I have Mrs. Saint and the Defectives. Hope to read it soon.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #12: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 19:14:00
I'm still working through Bad Housekeeping. I have so many other books distracting me. Mrs. Saint and the Defectives is wonderful.
Comment #13: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 14:39:55
Hope the rest of the move goes smoothly. I really love Lucy Knisley.
Comment #14: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 19:16:00
The weekend was tough but productive. Everything else we can do on the remaining weekends. Plus I can grab some every day before I pick up my youngest from school.
I adore Lucy Knisley's books.
Comment #15: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 15:17:30
I really enjoyed Lucy Knisley's Relish. I'll have to look for An Age of License.
Comment #16: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 19:26:00
Age of License is good too. I think you'll like it.
Comment #17: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 20:26:04
How was Amira's Voice? I've been eyeing that one for a while now. Good luck getting everything moved.
Comment #18: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 20:28:04
Amira's Voice is excellent. I recommend reading along side of the YA, Saints and Misfits.
Comment #19: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 21:03:56
I like Lucy Knisley's work. There is one, I can't recall the name, that is about a cruise she took with her grandparents - I loved it. It brought tears to my eyes sometimes!
Things too huge sounds good too!
Comment #20: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 20:32:00
You're thinking of Displacement.
Comment #21: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 21:34:04
I've read a Jason Shiga book! I can't remember the name of it right now, but it was a love story of sorts, semi-autobiographical, I think. I like the look of a lot of your books, but I'm not familiar with most of them!
Comment #22: Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 21:21:00
You're thinking of Empire State. Although the art style of Demon is classic Jason Shiga it's otherwise nothing like any of this other books that I've read.
Comment #23: Monday, October 09, 2017 at 22:49:12
Amina's Voice looks good and the Demon graphic novel. You've done a lot of awesome reading!
Comment #24: Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 21:25:00
Amina's Voice is excellent. Demon is too but it's like nothing I've ever seen you review so I can't say whether or not it would be a good fit for you.
Comment #25: Tuesday, October, 10, 2017 at 02:48:48
I hope the moving process is going great. So happy for you. 😁 Anyway, enjoy your books and have a wonderful week. ❤️
Comment #26: Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 21:25:00
We have the basics moved into the house and we're in our first full week of living here. The apartment still has stuff that needs moving. We just gave notice there this morning, so the clock is ticking down to when we have to be out of there.
Comment #27: Tuesday, October, 10, 2017 at 14:55:18
Moving can really be crazy. Good luck with your move.
The books look great. Maia Chance is an author I've been wanting to read.
Have a great week!
Comment #28: Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 21:31:00
We've been through some crazy, awful moves. This one, so far, has been relatively easy. There was the DESK FROM HELL which I might blog about on Monday. Otherwise it's been a good move.
I'm finally almost done with Bad Housekeeping. Ir's different than a lot of other cozies I've read.
Comment #29: Wednesday, October, 11, 2017 at 09:26:29
Oh gosh, I haven't read one of Susan Wittig Albert's books in a long time. I was devouring them at one time. How did you like Mrs Saint and the Defectives? I've got that on my TBR list and just haven't gotten to it yet. Have a great week.
Comment #30: Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 21:36:00
I first dipped my toe into the China Bayles series a decade ago. Recently I decided to read through the series since it's still being published. I'm not sure, though, that I will. I think my tastes have drifted too much.
Mrs. Saint and the Defectives is excellent and should get bumped up to the top of your TBR pile.
Comment #31: Wednesday, October, 11, 2017 at 22:31:36
Good luck! I'm sure everything will come together smoothly for you.
Comment #32: Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 21:40:00
So far, so good!
Comment #33: Thursday, October 12, 2017 at 11:36:50
Moving can be so stressful!
Comment #34: Sunday, October, 15, 2017 at 17:05:00
So far, so good.
Comment #35: Friday, October 13, 2017 at 06:15:22
Sorry - I'm light years behind on my blog ATM but catching up day by day.
The Girl Scouts activity sounded like so much fun!
Comment #36: Sunday, October, 15, 2017 at 17:09:00
No worries. The Girl Scout scarecrow was fun — a good team building experience.
Comment #37: Friday, October 13, 2017 at 22:30:28
I hope you managed your move out goal. It can be stressful, and joyful, to move.
I have seen a couple of your books but don't have any of them. Hope you are experiencing Happy Reading!
Comment #38: Sunday, October, 15, 2017 at 17:24:00
We have just under a month to get everything else out of the apartment. This coming weekend will be our big push to get it all out.
