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.
As we near the end of another month, it’s time to recap what we’ve read.
Since last time I have completed:
The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo, reviewed here. Not my favorite classic or Hugo book, but I am glad to have read it. It kept me thinking for days afterward.
30 Days of Hope When Caring for Aging Parents by Kathy Howard, reviewed here. Very good.
Full Assurance by Harry A. Ironside, reviewed here. Excellent study on what the Bible has to say about assurance of salvation.
The Pattern Artist by Nancy Moser, reviewed here. A maid from England accompanies her employers on a visit to America in 1911, then strikes out on her own. She lands a job in the sewing department of Macy’s and captures the attention of the Butterick Patterns salesman. Very good!
Back Home Again: Tales from the Grace Chapel Inn by Melody Carlson, reviewed here. Three sisters turn the old family home into a bed-and-breakfast, working through their own differences and town opposition. The first in a long series. Good.
Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate, reviewed here. Riveting historical fiction based on real circumstances concerning a woman who stole poor children and then placed them for adoption.
The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: Book VI: The Long-Lost Home by Maryrose Wood, reviewed here. A fun and satisfying wrap-up to this series.
Reshaping It All: Motivation for Physical and Spiritual Fitness by Candace Cameron Bure, reviewed here. Cameron’s journey from bulimia and excess weight to fitness, inside and out. Very good.
I’m currently reading:
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society By Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. Finally!
Helen Roseveare: On His Majesty’s Service by Irene Howat
Reclaim Your Life from IBS: A Scientifically Proven Plan for Relief without Restrictive Diets by Melissa G. Hunt
Christian Publishing 101 by Ann Byle
I’d like to reread, or at least look through again, Women of the Word by Jen Wilkin
Something from this stack and my ever-increasing Kindle collection:
Are you reading anything good now?
Several of your books sound very interesting. The series on the B&B sounds very good. I would enjoy Candace Cameron’s book too. I’ve seen it advertised but didn’t know much about it. You are an avid reader for sure. I think I remember reading “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” when I was in high school. I’m pretty sure it was under duress! LOL. Have a blessed day.
Before We Were Yours has caught my eye again. Sounds like an intriguing story, especially since it’s based on real circumstances. Those are my favorites.
I’ve thought about re-reading The Guernsey book before I watch the movie, but I probably will just watch the movie anyway. 🙂
I watched the Guernsey movie and enjoyed it though it took a little bit to get into it. I liked the book too. Before We Were Yours was so good. Sad but good.
Oh your are such a voracious reader, Barbara! I always discover something new when I look at your book posts. So many books, so little time …
Love that picture of your stack. I read Jen Wilkin’s books on Kindle where they are not nearly so pretty! We have a LOT of books in common!

Guernsey….loved the book, loved the movie. xo
Guernsey is a favorite of mine that I re-read every once in awhile. I look forward to a time when I can read more in a month’s time. Thank you for sharing.
