What Books are on Your Nightstand?

If you’re like me, your nightstand is home to your reading-now and read-next books. Sometimes those piles are toppling over, and other times, it’s pretty thin. Right now, my pile’s pretty average.

Here’s what you’ll find:


Currently Reading:

  • Singularity, Jevin Banks series #2, by Steven James (Revell). Loving it! James keeps getting better–he really knows how to dig into your psyche.
  • Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. I brought this novel with me to the doctor’s office the other week, and the nurse asked what I was reading. I told her, and she responded, “Never heard of her.” Really? How very sad is that!

An Accidental Life

Next in line:

When Mountains Move

Coming in at the library:

What are you reading now? What’s next on your list? Have you read any of these?

  1. Wow – never heard of Charlotte Bronte . . . I would have thought every high school graduate would have at least run across the NAME? Amazing.

    My pile is a little lower, currently, for some reason – I think because I’ve been playing catch-up!

    Current read – “When A Secret Kills,” by Lynnette Eason – it’s the 3rd in her “Deadly Reunions” series, and boy is it a page-turner! 2 nights ago, I went directly from the end of book 2 to the end of book 3 because I couldn’t STOP!

    Next up (maybe) – “The Book Thief,” by Marcus Zusak.
    And after that (TBD) – “The Ambition” by Lee Strobel; “The Hero’s Lot” by Patrick Carr (book 2 of the “Staff and the Sword” series)

    Just finished (before I got to Lynnette’s series!) – “A Cast of Stones” by Patrick Carr (book 1 of the “Staff and the Sword” series)

    After seeing an interview with John Grisham about his debut novel, “A Time to Kill” being a Broadway play, I see that I have a lot of catching up to do on my Grisham novels! 🙂 And I’ve wanted to read Steven James – his books intrigue me!

    1. This nurse hadn’t heard of Jane Eyre or Charlotte Bronte. Unbelievable. But, when I look at the reading lists our kids get in school, I shouldn’t be surprised. They’re exposed to so few of the classics.

      Great reading lists! I’m behind on my Lynnette Eason books. And the Book Thief? I just saw a trailer for the movie–now I want to read the book.

      Just a warning about Steven James’ books, particularly the Patrick Bowers series: they can be quite gruesome, but he’s a brilliant storyteller who doesn’t write down to his audience. Expect to be challenged both intellectually and spiritually.

  2. What does average mean for you mom? Only 50 books opposed to your usual 100? 😉

    I have been reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix for months now. For class I’m reading Fabricating Jesus by Craig Evans, among other textbooks. =P
