I missed the 5 Minutes for Books Nightstand carnival on Tuesday...and in July...and in June.
Oh, well, better late than never!
If you want to know everything I have read since May, you can click here to see my Reading List for 2010. (Items 18 through 31 were read this summer.)
In the past month I have posted my thoughts on the following books:
One For the Money; Two For the Dough; and Three to Get Deadly by Janet Evanovich; Love And War: Finding the Marriage You've Dreamed Of by John and Stasi Eldredge; Jemima J: A Novel About Ugly Ducklings and Swans by Jane Green; and Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by Malcolm Gladwell; all mentioned here.
And Hotel On The Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford; mentioned here.
Becoming Jane Austen: The True Love Story That Inspired the Classic Novels by Jon Spence
I have so many books on my book stand that I have resorted to the draw system for reading them. Seriously! I have written down every title on a slip of paper and when I finish a book I draw another slip to decide what I am reading next. I am sure if something jumps out at me, I will rush it to the top of the list.
Without further ado, my 'To Be Read' list.
Still on the nightstand from April - The DaVinci Code; The Senator's Wife; and Snowflower and the Secret Fan
Left from May - The Happiness Project; Choosing Gratitude; The Postmistress; and Sullivan's Island.
New additions to my nightstand include:
Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson
The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory
The Familiar Stranger by Christina Berry
Mennonite In A Little Black Dress: A Memoir of Going Home by Rhoda Janzen
A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes From My Kitchen Table by Molly Wizenberg
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
