What's On Your Nightstand

Well, another month is almost done, and it’s time to look back at what I’ve read over the last few weeks and see what is coming up next. Between my love of books and my love of putting things in order, this is probably my favorite post of the month. :)

I posted three reviews at 5MFB/5MFM recently, all three of which were Christian fiction. First was Be Still My Soul by newcomer Joanne Bischof, which is a historical romance set in Appalachia, followed by You Don’t Know Me by Susan May Warren, which is another installment in her Deep Haven series. The final one was Life with Lily, a charming middle grade novel about a young girl growing up Amish, written by Suzanne Woods Fisher and Mary Ann Kinsinger. Suzanne was even gracious enough to write an On Reading column for us about what the Amish read in their homes.

I read quite a few other books this month, five of which I posted reviews for (click on the titles to check out my reviews). The first is nonfiction, the second is young adult/vampire, and the rest are Christian fiction:

The other books I finished this month included (click on the titles to see them on Goodreads):

And, finally, I’m currently reading:

So, that’s it for me this month. What’s on your nightstand right now?

The Truth About Children and Divorce. Oh, now that definitely sounds interesting to me. I’ll watch for your thoughts there.

You’ve sure been zooming through your books!

I really, really want to get my hands on Pearl in the Sand. I don’t normally purchase books but I might have to make an exception.

Enjoy your upcoming reads!

People Can’t Drive You Crazy… sounds like a book I need to read immediately. It looks like you had a great month reading.

I want to read “The Night Circus” and I love Joanna Trollope! Haven’t read that one though.

I absolutely adored The Night Circus, one of the best books I’ve read this year!

I just downloaded that Joanna Trollope on audio, are you writing it up? It sounds really interesting. I must read The Night Circus.

And River’s Song amuses me, if you watch Doctor Who you’ll know why. :)

I’m curious what you think about The Night Circus. I’ve read so many different reviews of it. I liked your review of You Don’t Know Me. I’ve been thinking about trying it. Thanks!
