The 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 enjoy this monthly opportunity to share what we’re reading.
Since last time I have completed:
Adam Bede by George Eliot, reviewed here. Excellent.
Drawing Near to the Heart of God: Encouragement for Your Lifetime Journey by Cynthia Heald, reviewed here. Good.
I’m currently reading:
The Highly Sensitive Person by Elaine N. Aron. Mixed emotions about this one.
Villette by Charlotte Bronte
A Small Book About a Big Problem: Meditations on Anger, Patience, and Peace by Edward T. Welch
Gospel Meditations for Mothers by Chris Anderson, Joe Tyrpak, Hannah Anderson, and others
The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo
Christian Publishing 101 by Ann Byle
The Song of Sadie Sparrow by Kitty Foth-Regner
Tarissa at In the Bookcase hosts the Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge in June. I’d like to read a biography, Invincible Louisa by Cornelia Meigs, and possibly A Long Fatal Love Chase by Louisa. The latter was one of her “sensational novels” that she, like Jo in Little Women, wrote for quick money. It was recently rediscovered and printed. It may be too sensational for me – we’ll see.
I also made a list of books I’d like to reread…someday.
Read anything interesting this month? Do you have big reading plans for the summer?
