Hard to believe we’re 2/3 through the year already and summer will be over before the next Nightstand. I’m glad to spend some of the passing time with good books.
Since last time I have completed:
Just Jane: A Novel of Jane Austen’s Life by Nancy Moser, reviewed here. Didn’t like this as much as I thought I would, but it is an interesting peek into her life.
On Stories and Other Essays on Literature by C. S. Lewis, reviewed here. Some excellent observations.
Gospel Meditations for the Hurting by Chris Anderson and Joe Tyrpak. Didn’t review this as it is just a 31-day devotional. The tone is not what I’d call warm and fuzzy, but the Biblical truths are right on target and helpful.
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, audiobook, reviewed here.
The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, audiobook, reviewed here.
Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen, audiobook. This was a re-listen as I read it in 2008 and listened to the audiobook in 2013. My previous review is here.
I’m currently reading:
Undetected by Dee Henderson. Loving it.
Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus: A Devout Muslim Encounters Christianity by Nabeel Qureshi. Excellent.
The Girl in the Gatehouse by Julie Klassen. Enjoyed the first part – not enjoying the middle so much. We’ll see how it ends up.
Why We Are Not Emergent: By Two Guys Who Should Be by Kevin DeYoung, Ted Kluck, and David F. Wells. This will finish my TBR Challenge list. I need to get it read and off my every Nightstand TBR section, but I wanted to take a break from my reading challenges with some fiction.
Somewhere Safe With Somebody Good, NEWEST book by Jan Karon! Can’t wait! It’s supposed to come out in early September and I have pre-ordered it.
The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
The Last Bride by Beverly Lewis
In Perfect Time by Sarah Sundin
I’ve got some good reading to look forward to! How about you?
