What's on Your Nightstand is hosted each month by 5 Minutes for Books.
Since last month's post, I've posted thoughts on:
Lit! A Christian Guide to Reading Books by Tony Reinke
The Beautiful Wife by Sandy Ralya (This was actually partial thoughts. I'm still studying in it. Great book!)
The Maid of Fairbourne Hall by Julie Klassen
Blue Moon Promise by Colleen Coble
Almost Amish by Nancy Sleeth
More Beauty, Less Beast by Debora Coty
A Love That Multiplies by Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar
Stand By Me by Neta Jackson
Heartless by Anne Elisabeth Stengl
I did a combined post with quick thoughts on:
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie(The book and movie)
Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson
Growing Up Ziglar by Julie Norman Ziglar
(Most of those were "did not finish" books).
I also read:
By the Light of the Silvery Moon by Tricia Goyer, but that review won't go up until April 6th. I liked it, though!
This month, I plan on reading:
Moonblood by Anne Elisabeth Stengl
I can't even tell you how excited I was to pull this one out of my mailbox. I'm reading it right now. I was actually in the midst of re-reading Moonblood, but I can't keep myself away from Moonblood long enough to finish it!
The Selection by Kiera Cass
Due to a late night and early morning with the boys(not by choice), I'm already almost finished with this one, and I just got it yesterday. It was a better choice for those "trying to stay awake" hours than Moonblood. I need a bit more concentration for those books! I really like The Selection, though! It's a very quiet, fun kind of read.
Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris
I already regret the decision to take this one on for review! I haven't read very far in it, but there is lots of profanity, including the "f" word. "sigh" I will try my best to make sure my thoughts about the book are NOT based on the profanity, though. I know that kind of thing doesn't bother everyone as much as it does me. ;)
The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck
I've heard GREAT things about this book so far.
Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
This one has been recommended by several people, so I picked it for one of my non-fiction reads this month.
Need You Now by Beth Wiseman
I don't read much Amish fiction these days, so when I saw that Beth Wiseman had decided to write a "regular" fiction book, I knew I wanted to read it! My cover is different than this one, though.
Sixty Acres and a Bride by Regina Jennings
This one is a contemporary re-telling of the book of Ruth. I don't really care for Biblical fiction where the names are the same, but details are left up to the author. I'm uncomfortable with it. I do love re-tellings, though, when the names and settings are changed.
The Girl in Blue by P.G. Wodehouse
This one is for April's Bookclub pick.
Thank You, Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse
I'm hoping to squeeze this one in, too, since Wodehouse's books are pretty short.
