Total books for the year: 15 of 90.  The Boyfriend and I left Arizona for California on Wednesday and moved into our new apartment on Thursday.  Since then, we’ve been checking out the neighborhood, buying stuff for our home, figuring out the public transportation, and eating really yummy food.  Yesterday we spent most of the morning at one of 3 local farmer’s markets and OMG, we will definitely be going back for almond croissants from one of the bakery stalls and the triple cream cheese we discovered at one of the creameries.  It’s a good thing we’re walking to and from most places; otherwise, we’d end up gaining a ton of weight!

Total books for the year: 13 of 90.  If it weren’t for listening to Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, I wouldn’t have read much of anything this week.  The Boyfriend and I finished packing up the apartment and completed the 1st half of our road trip to California.  We’re currently visiting his Mom and her Husband in Arizona.  I’m not 100% sure what day we’re leaving, but I’m catching up on sleep, eating food that didn’t come from a drive-through, and generally relaxing.  I also got to hang out with my BFF on Sunday and I already miss her!

Total books for the year: 13 of 90.  Reading time has been nearly non-existent for most of this week.  While I managed to finish one book towards the beginning of the week, I haven’t picked up a book to read instead of pack since Friday.  The Boyfriend and I leave for San Francisco later this week, so I’m hoping to get some quiet reading time once the apartment is finally empty of all our stuff.

Total books for the year: 12 of 90.  I try to keep my current reads down to 6, but I’m now in the middle of 7 books, and it will be 8 once I catch up to the #EpicBuddyRead on Litsy, The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss, and 9 when I start another audiobook.  I’m going to try to concentrate on finishing at least 2 of my current reads this week, but I’ve been a very moody reader lately.
