It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (April 16): 04/16/18
We're half way through April now. I have a ton of new books to read — which is exactly the opposite problem I was having back in January. I also have a bunch of library book (still!) coming due from what I was checking out in January.
I'm enjoying what I'm reading but I'm also feeling torn between the new books I want to read and review in the upcoming weeks and the library books which are due NOW but can be reviewed whenever I feel like it. Of course the reality of the situation is that I'm not taking ARCs or egalleys. I haven't promised anyone but myself.

Oh yes I know that tension of library books in abundance plus new books coming out and wanting to read them all! First world problem!

Oh I know. I finished the library book I was reading and returned it and another four (unread). I will re-request them as time permits.

The book about L. Frank Baum looks good.

I just finished chapter one. It's pretty interesting.

I understand your dilemma. I have discovered a new to me series that I wnt to read and have put aside my review books for it. Luckily, I'm a month ahead on review books and can catch up when I finish the series. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

I still have a bunch of reviews already written that I can use which does give me wiggle room. It's just that I don't want to keep pushing back my new reads for library reads. I just have to figure out the best balance between the two.

I hope to catch up on April's books in ... oh, let's say July! HA
Comment #8: Monday, April 16, 2018 at 22:02:00
That's what I'm trying to avoid.

I loved Rachel Hartman's Seraphina, so am putting Tess of the Road on my Goodreads' TBR. My eye was also caught by Giant Days and the Eisner stamp - will have to go and look for that one.

Meanwhile, I've set Tess of the Road aside to read Seraphina. The Giant Days comic is good. Start at the beginning.
Comment #11: Monday, April 16, 2018 at 21:26:32
Wow, you read four books at once? A-ma-zing! I am lovin' this Flavia de Luce; she is so awesome. I'm on hold for the latest one.
Comment #12: Monday, April 16, 2018 at 22:08:00
I finished four books in one week. You make it sound like I was juggling while reading.
Comment #13: Monday, April 16, 2018 at 21:51:47
Oh my gosh. I used to devour Susan Wittig Albert's books and haven't thought about her books in years. I did enjoy them.
You have a wonderful assortment of books here. Happy reading!

When I first read her series in my thirties, I loved it. But going back now, I'm just not connecting with the characters, the setting, or really anything. I've decided to take a break again from the China Bayles books.

I check a lot of books out from my library and I agree it is sometimes hard to decide which books to read first. It seems like all my library books become available at the same time! The book on L. Frank Baum looks interesting! Enjoy all your reads.
Comment #16: Monday, April 16, 2018 at 22:12:00
The frustrating thing is when I run out of renewals, as I did this week. I ended up returning four books unread. I'll request them again when I have more time.
Comment #17: Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at 02:52:24
That's a lot of books.
Comment #18: Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at 21:55:00
I suppose. But there are always more.
Comment #19: Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at 06:19:25
Dorthy Must Die and Tess of the Road! I haven't read the first but I mean to, and I loved the second! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!
Comment #20: Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at 21:56:00
I need to read Seraphina before I go back to Tess of the Road.
Comment #21: Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at 13:58:12
Your reading list is encouraging me to diversify my reading choices. Have a great week.
Comment #22: Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at 21:58:00
I hope you do. It's worth the effort.
Comment #22: Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at 15:58:57
The Night Garden looks wonderful!
Comment #23: Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at 21:59:00
It is. I couldn't put it down.
