The folks at 5 Minutes For Books host What’s On Your Nightstand? the fourth Tuesday of each month in which we can share about the books we have been reading and/or plan to read. You can learn more about it by clicking the link or the button.
Wow, January has flown by — I can’t believe there is less that a week of it left. But I am glad — I look forward to February and Valentine’s Day, and then spring isn’t far behind!
Since last time I have read:
The Anne books were read in conjunction with Carrie‘s third annual Lucy Maud Montgomery Reading Challenge. I just finished the next book in the series, Anne of Windy Poplars, and hope to review it later today or tomorrow.
I also made headway in 50 People Every Christian Should Know: Learning From Spiritual Giants of the Faith by Warren Wiersbe but admittedly set it aside to concentrate on the Anne books this month. I’ve been dabbling in it for a long while and need to make a dedicated effort to finish it.
I have a whole stack to choose from this next month. I don’t often accept requests for reviewing books, but something about Song of Renewal by Emily Sue Harvey spoke to me, so that will definitely be in the queue for this month. Also lined up are A Memory Between Us by Sarah Sundin, Faithful by Kim Cash Tate (won from Mocha With Linda‘s Booking the Holidays giveaways) and Just Between You and Me by Jenny B. Jones.
I also have on hand Looking for Anne of Green Gables: The Story of L. M. Montgomery and Her Literary Classic, a biography of LMM by Irene Gammel. I wanted to read it in conjunction with the Lucy Maud Montgomery Reading Challenge but it is not likely I would finish it in time. But I would like to read it while the Anne books are still fresh in my mind. I haven’t decided yet whether to go ahead with it or save or for next year’s challenge. I also can’t decide whether to go on to Anne’s House of Dreams, which I was really looking forward to as, if memory serves, it was my second favorite of the series next to the first one, or to leave it for next year’s LMM challenge. The challenge ends this week, so I can’t do both by then…decisions, decisions!
