What's On Your Nightstand?

What's On Your Nightstand

It's the last Tuesday of the month, so it's time for What's On Your Nightstand?

I went back to last month's entry, and I noticed some similarities, but also a few books that I didn't read. Let's just say that I'm a very moody reader. People are always surprised on the amount of books that I take out of the library. I don't read them, half of them go back unread, and someday I hope I go back and read them. But it all depends on my mood.

Here's what I have on my nightstand.




The Jericho Pact, I've had in my TBR for while. Eventually it will be read.

The Darkest Pleasure, I read the first book of the series, which I enjoyed. I've tried reading previously but couldn't get into it. Yep, my mood. It's on my nightstand, so I once I read it I can pass it on to my sister. I hope she's not in a rush.

Girls In Trucks, was a recommendation by a friend. It's looks interesting.

The Janissary Tree, I'm reading for the Book Awards II challenge.

The Smoke Thief, I'm reading for a group discussion.

Zorro, I'm reading for Orbis Terrarum Challenge.

The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love, I'm reading for the Book Awards II challenge.

Acheron, I'm a huge fan of the Dark Hunter series by Kenyon. This is the latest of the series. I find its size a little intimidating.

That's quite an ambitious stack! I do the same thing with library books. I guess that's why I never formally kept a "TBR list" before as I just read whatever I felt like at the moment!

Great set of reads! :D

That is a good stack of books there :-) Do you like reading books for challenges? Is it hard to keep up with them? I have only ever done Katrina's challenge which is low stress to get them finished :-)

Yeah my pile is to big to be realistically be read by next month. But I'll try.

Ladybug, I always have the best of intentions, but you never know...I'm hoping that I will read all of them.

Happy reading!

Hi Lindsay,

Thanks for stopping by Wandeca Reads.

I'm addicted to reading challenges. I can't seem to say no. lol I like the more flexible challenges, and but I also like that with a particular challenge I will read books that I wouldn't necessarily have chosen otherwise. It's fun!

Happy reading!

I also read by mood, so I like to have a big stack so that I can read what feels right.

I'd be interested to hear what you think of Girls in Trucks. I read it in the spring. I thought it was okay -- not great, but there were some great things about it.

Hi Jennifer, and thanks for stopping by Wandeca Reads. :D

I'm actually reading P&P and Girls in Trucks (started last night). So far I think GIT is okay, nothing is really sparking for me...but I really love the cover! lol

Happy reading!
