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’m glad a friend posted her Nightstand post a day early: otherwise I would have forgotten all about it! This month, the last Tuesday comes up with almost a week still left in the month, so I wasn’t even thinking about my Nightstand post yet. But, thankfully, now I am!
Since last time I have completed:
The Story of My Life by Helen Keller, reviewed here. Helen wrote this when she was in her twenties, so it only covers the first part of her life. The editor supplemented with copies of her letters and her teacher’s.
Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ by Lew Wallace, reviewed here. Good story set in the time of Christ.
Sins of the Past by Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey, and Lynette Eason, reviewed here. Three mystery novellas connected by the theme of an incident in the protagonists’ past causing problems in their present. Good.
Reading People: How Seeing the World through the Lens of Personality Changes Everything by Anne Bogel, reviewed here. Good overview of various personality frameworks.
He Fell in Love With His Wife by Edward Payson Roe, reviewed here. A very sweet old story about a marriage of convenience between two wounded souls who find respite with each other. Loved this.
Another Way Home by Deborah Raney, reviewed here. A young couple battles fertility issues, which puts a strain on their marriage when nothing works. The husband refuses to consider adoption. The wife starts volunteering in a women’s shelter to occupy her thoughts and time and gets involved with a woman and her son there. Very good Christian fiction.
I’m currently reading:
Adam Bede by George Eliot
The Highly Sensitive Person by Elaine N. Aron. My interest in this was sparked by a chapter of this title in Reading People.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo
Anchor in the Storm by Sarah Sundin
Christian Publishing 101 by Ann Byle
Adorned by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth
As always, I have a stack of unread books on my bookcase and loads of them in my Kindle app, so I have no shortage of books to read. It’s just hard to decide which one to read next!
