What’s On Your Nightstand: February 2016

What's On Your NightstandThe folks at 5 Minutes For Books host What’s On Your Nightstand? the last Tuesday of each month in which we can share about the books we have been reading and/or plan to read.

I almost forgot today is the last Tuesday of February! Since this is a shorter month, we don’t get another Tuesday in which to wrap up our reading progress for the month. But even though this short month flew by, I was able to get some good reading in.

Since last time I have completed:

Big Love: The Practice of Loving Beyond Your Limits by Kara Tippetts, reviewed here.

Emily’s Quest for Carrie’s Lucy Maud Montgomery Reading Challenge last month, reviewed here.

The Bronte Plot by Katherine Reay, reviewed here. Loved it.

Little Town on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder for the Laura Ingalls Wilder Reading Challenge here this month, reviewed here. It’s kind of a bridge from Laura’s girlhood to the time she starts teaching school and Almanzo starts showing an interest in her.

What Are You Afraid Of: Facing Down Your Fears With Faith by David Jeremiah. I finished it several days ago, and there was so much I wanted to remember and reinforce that I outlined the chapters. Hope to review it in a day or two.

I’m currently reading:

Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens, audiobook. Nearly done!

Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography by Laura Ingalls Wilder and Pamela Smith Hill, also for the Laura Ingalls Wilder Reading Challenge. I don’t know if I will get it finished by the end of the challenge this month, but I’ll do my best.

True Woman 201: Interior Design by Mary Kassian and Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Sweet Grace: How I Lost 250 Pounds And Stopped Trying To Earn God’s Favor by Teresa Shields Parker, recommended by Melanie.

Up Next:

Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass.

Beyond Stateliest Marble: The Passionate Femininity of Anne Bradstreet by Douglas Wilson

Pride, Prejudice, and Cheese Grits by Mary Jane Hathaway

What are you reading these days?

  1. A friend and I are doing the study on Sweet Grace. It’s work book and it’s very good. I hope you enjoy it. I tried to read Pioneer Girl and it was so long, I just put it down. I’ll have two read by the end of the month. Have a great day.

  2. I see you are reading True Woman 201: Interior Design. Our ladies Bible Study will begin True Woman 101: Divine Design on March 8. We are really looking forward to it. If you have already done 101 and have any feedback or suggestion on ways to enhance our study your comments would be most welcome. Blessings to you and yours, Regina

  3. Great list – I just started reading Frederick Douglass too – I find the topic so hard to read but it’s a part of our history so I want to understand the period.

    … and I have the Bronte Plot in my pile too – time for some fun reading after some heavy books. Happy reading!

  4. I totally forgot WOYN until today — yikes. I really enjoyed Pioneer Girl, although with all those (admittedly interesting) footnotes, it did take quite a while to read. I’m hoping to post my review of it to your LIW wrap-up. I love LTOTP! I love the way the LIW books follow Laura as she grows up, and the tone changes as she matures. There’s such a sense of excitement with her doing “grown up” things — going to singing class, riding with Almanzo, etc.
