It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (October 16): 10/16/17
By November 13th, we have to be out of the apartment. We're about 1/4 moved into the house. We have enough stuff here to sleep, eat, and generally live. But there's still about half the kitchen in the apartment to move, some clothing, a couple bookshelves, and some books. Then there's everything else that's in storage.
It's nice to live somewhere again with wildlife. The birds have discovered that we've moved in and have put out food for them. We have seeds, peanuts, and suet out for our avian neighbors.

I bet the birds are very happy that you have moved in. That sounds like a feast for them.

As time and money permits, I plan to make the garden an even more bird friendly spot. It's the first yard I've had control over — all my previous places being either rentals or condos.

Nice assortment of books. Moving is such a pain. It seems like whatever you need is at the other place (or in a box that hasn't been unpacked yet). It will be nice when the whole move is accomplished. By the way, you have nice looking avian neighbors. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

Things are either at the apartment, in storage, or in the new garage. This coming weekend we're doing another big push to get things out of the apartment. We have to be completely out by November 13th. Once that's done we can worry about the stuff in storage.
The birds are great. It's so nice to have them visiting again. At the apartment I couldn't put out seed.

I hope the move goes smoothly. It's nice when you have access to the house and can move gradually.
I enjoyed Bad Housekeeping...and I've seen another book by the author that sounds good (Gin & Panic).
Thanks for visiting my blog, and enjoy your week.

The move is moving along, although we didn't do much this weekend. My husband was on call.
Bad Housekeeping was interesting. I have the second book in the series on my wishlist. It comes out next year. I'm also putting her Discreet Retrieval Company series on my wishlist.

Congratulations on your new home! moving can be difficult at times, you don't realize how much stuff you really have until you start moving, lol. I bought Dorothy Must Die last summer, I still haven't had a chance to read it yet. Have a great week!

I've lived my entire adult life so far in homes of about 900 square feet. With a spouse and two kids and two cats, that comes out to about 150 square feet of personal space. While we have our books in storage, we're staring at a now mostly empty house. We have to buy furniture as we save up money. Our living room is still two weeks in, completely empty.
I bought Dorothy Must Die when it was brand new. It's just been sitting on my shelf waiting for the right time to read.

The Crafty Cat book looks adorable.

My daughter enjoys the series.

Well it looks like you've made friends with the birds already. :) Good luck with the moving!

We're about two miles from our old condo. I think the jay is one of the ones who used to visit me there. Regardless, it's nice to have the birds visiting.

Dorothy Must Die looks really great! Hope you enjoy them all and have a good week! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!
Comment #14: Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at 12:53:00
I have a bunch of library books coming due, so I'm afraid Dorothy Must Die won't get much attention this week.
Comment #15: Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at 06:39:22
Wow! That's a lot of reading and reviews for someone in the middle of a move! I want to read some more cozies this winter! Will add the Bibliophile Mystery series to my TBR.
Comment #16: Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at 12:55:00
I have reviews written through the end of the year, so I have something to post even if I don't have time to write something. The Bibliophile Mystery series is hit or miss for me, but it's good enough to keep me coming back for more.

That bird is so pretty. Love the blue coloring.
Enjoy your books. They look good.
Comment #18: Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at 12:58:00
That's a California Jay. They are all over the place where I live. THey're loud and cheeky and I love watching them.
Comment #19: Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 18:14:50
I love feeding the birds too - that one is gorgeous!
A Boy Called Bat looks good!
I am glad to hear that Mrs. Saint was delightful - I am definitely adding it to my list.
Comment #20: Monday, October 23, 2017 at 23:32:00
That's one is a California Scrub Jay. Until last year they were called Western Scrub Jays but the species got split up into two species.
A Boy Called Bat is good. It's about a child fostering an orphaned skunk.

I hope the rest of your move goes smoothly. I moved just this April and found it very tough going.

We got the remaining furniture out of the apartment today. Now there's mostly just boxes to bring here from the apartment and cleaning. Then once the apartment is completely squared away and we've turned in the keys, we can focus on getting things out of storage.
