What’s On Your Nightstand: July 2013

What's On Your NightstandThe 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.

Wow, it’s been another super busy month. Here’s what I’ve been reading and plan to read next.

Since last time I’ve finished:

Through Gates of Splendor, by Elizabeth Elliot, a missionary classic about the lives and deaths of Jim Elliot, Nate Saint, and their three friends who tried to reach a savage tribe in Ecuador, for Carrie’s Reading to Know Book Club for June, reviewed here.

The Hidden Art of Homemaking by Edith Schaeffer along with Cindy at Ordo Amoris who is hosting a read-along book club where we discuss a chapter at a time. My discussions are here.

The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, Book II: The Hidden Gallery by Maryrose Wood, reviewed here, another fun one.

The Magician’s Nephew by C. S. Lewis for Carrie‘s Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge, reviewed here.

Light From Heaven by Jan Karon, last of the Mitford series, via audiobook. I summed up all the Mitford books here.

I’m currently reading:

The Last Battle by C. S. Lewis for Carrie‘s Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge

The Fruitful Wife by Hayley DiMarco.

The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck.

Next up:

Invisible by Ginny Yttrup.

On Distant Shores, hot off the press by Sarah Sundin.

Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal by Mary Roach.

Daniel Deronda, by George Eliot for Carrie’s Reading to Know Book Club for August.

If I should finish those, I have others lined up and just have to decide which to delve into. 🙂

What’s on your nightstand?

  1. Reading three at the moment: The Forever Stone by Gloria Repp; God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea by Rose Chandler Johnson; and Why You Really Can Memorize Scripture by Dr. Daniel Morris. Will review them when I’m done. :o)

  2. Right now I’m reading Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman. After that I’m not sure. I’ve picked out quite a few for summer reads but haven’t decided yet what I’m in the mood for next.

  3. I’ve been enjoying your weekly posts on The Hidden Art of Homemaking. I thought I’d dig my copy out but I’m just vicariously reading through your summaries instead. 🙂

  4. I am hoping that when I get to the Mitford Series it will be light reading. October is a good month for easier reading, leisurely sitting out in the yard with the leaves changing…oh boy, I am so ready for fall! 🙂

  5. Love your list! I’ve got to read Through Gates of Splendor and Hidden Art of Homemaking sooner or later…they’ve both interested me for a long time! I look forward to hearing your thoughts about The Fruitful Wife. I enjoyed Ginny Yttrup’s Words, even though I really didn’t think I would, and I’ve got the new one on my Kindle to get around to soon too.

I love hearing from you. I've had to turn on comment moderation. Comments will appear here after I see and approve them.
