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. And I love when it falls on the actual last day of the month!
Since last time I have completed:
Overcoming Your Devotional Obstacles: 25 Keys to Having Memorable Devotions by John O’Malley, reviewed here. Good, practical book.
Villette by Charlotte Bronte, reviewed here. A semi-autobiographical novel of a young Englishwoman all alone in the world who ventures forth to a teaching job in France.
Looking Into You by Chris Fabry, reviewed here. Very good: a woman who placed her baby for adoption twenty years ago rediscovers her first in a TV documentary and then as a student in her classroom.
A Small Book About a Big Problem: Meditations on Anger, Patience, and Peace by Edward T. Welch was finished last time but not yet reviewed. That review is here. Excellent.
That looks like a lot, but it covers all of July and the last few days of June, a little more than the usual nightstand post.
I’m currently reading:
The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo
30 Days of Hope When Caring for Aging Parents by Kathy Howard
Full Assurance by Harry A. Ironside
The Pattern Artist by Nancy Moser
Back Home Again: Tales from the Grace Chapel Inn by Melody Carlson
Christian Publishing 101 by Ann Byle. I keep listing this one and not getting to it. But I will one day!
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society By Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. Finally! I think I may be one of the last people on the planet who have not read this yet, but I wanted to before the movie came out.
Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate
The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: Book VI: The Long-Lost Home by Maryrose Wood. I’ve been waiting for this last book in the series for ages and just discovered yesterday that it’s out. I’m going to need something light-hearted after I get done with Hunchback.
How about you? Anything interesting reading on your nightstand?
