What's on my Nightstand - April

What's On Your Nightstand

It is time for the monthly What's on my Nightstand post hosted by 5 minutes for books.

It was a good month for reading. I read most of the books on my list and added a few others. Here is the list of what I read last month:

  • Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne (My Review)
  • Weekend Makeover by Don Aslett
  • The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell
  • Beauty by Robin McKinley
  • The Door in the Hedge by Robin McKinley
  • Michal by Jill Eileen Smith
  • Blog Blazers by Stephane Grenier
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  • Take One by Karen Kingsbury (My Review)
  • The Noticer by Andy Andrews (My Review)

On my nightstand for next month:

  • The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald (for Classics Bookclub)
  • The Prayer Chest by August Gold and Joel Fotinos
  • Inside the Revolution by Joel C. Rosenberg
  • Children of God by Mary Doria Russell
  • Ulterior Motives by Mark Andrew Olsen
  • Boneman's Daughters by Ted Dekker
  • Tenth Stone by Bodie & Brock Thoene

Little League starts this Saturday and both of my children are playing. Maybe I can read between innings. Maybe I just won't sleep. Anyway, it should be a busy but enjoyable month.

Oh, did you LOVE Hunger Games?? I'm so excited for Chasing Fire to come out this fall. And, I'm glad to see that you've got Gatsby on your list. :)

I echo Dawn's question--did you LOVE the Hunger Games? I did! I've read Gatsby for the Bookclub as well but didn't exactly love it...
