Usually I anticipate the Nightstand posts and have them ready, but for some reason this month I completely forgot about it until I saw Nightstand posts listed on several of my friends’ blogs in my Feedly! So I’m going to whip this one together.
It has been a good month for reading!
Since last time I have completed:
Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions by Lysa TerKeurst, reviewed here.
Jennifer: An O’Malley Love Story by Dee Henderson, short review here.
The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: Book IV: The Interrupted Tale by Maryrose Wood, short review here.
A Study in Scarlet, the first Sherlock Holmes book by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, audiobook, reviewed here.
The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy, audiobook, reviewed here.
A Tale of Two Cities, audiobook, by Charles Dickens for Carrie’s Reading to Know Book Club for December.
Two devotional books I read through last year were A Quiet Place: Daily Devotional Readings by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and One Year Christian History by E. Michael and Sharon Rusten, both reviewed just briefly here.
I also listed my top ten books read in 2013 here.
I’m currently reading:
Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire With God, Not Food by Lisa TerKeurst along with a online Bible study using Made to Crave hosted by Proverbs 31 Ministries. I will probably post a general review of the book here when I finish it, but I’m blogging about the individual chapters on my I Corinthians 10:31 blog under the label Made to Crave study.
Walking From East to West: God in the Shadows by Ravi Zacharias
Crowded to Christ by L. E. Maxwell
Ida Scudder: Healing Bodies, Touching Hearts by Janet and Geoff Benge
The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins. I’ve never read him before but he was a contemporary of Dickens and all reviews of this book are high.
Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder for my Laura Ingalls Wilder Reading Challenge (more on that below).
I invite you to participate in the Laura Ingalls Wilder Reading Challenge which runs through February, where we read books by or about or somehow related to LIW. I’ll have a post up Feb 1. where you can share what you plan to read and check out what others are reading.
