What's on your nightstand - January

What's On Your Nightstand

So, what's on my nightstand you ask? Oh, about 20 different books at this very moment! Most of them are review books!!!

Right now I'm reading 2 books. I was reading Hood by Stephen Lawhead. Since I'll be reviewing Tuck by Lawhead next month, I thought I'd try and blaze a trail. HA! This past week I saw little reading time so I'm barely through Book 1 that's over 475 pages. May as well return Scarlet to the library because I won't be getting to Book 2!
I am seriously enjoying this book! If you love tales of Robin Hood or anything of that genre, this is a series not to be missed. I haven't read any of Lawhead's books before, but I became an instant fan. After I finish Tuck I'll go back to read Scarlet. I think I'd need an entire Saturday guilt-free to read it before my Tuck review is due. The tale being weaved in this book is fantastic and I highly suggest it to anyone who enjoys getting lost in this time period.

I took a break from Hood starting yesterday because February is looming over me with 2 books to review on the first 2 days! Last night I started reading Scrapping Plans by Rebecca Seitz and then Lost in Las Vegas by Melody Carlson will be up next. Both of these books are reviewed for FIRST WildCard.

I also have 2 books that I'm personally going to review for authors:
Julie Klassen's newest book The Apothecary's Daughter. I'm so excited for this book! I loved her debut novel Lady of Milkweed Manor. I hope to read that and have a review for it the 2nd week of February. Need to get in touch with Julie!

The other book I just received is from Miralee Ferrell. It's called Love Finds You in Last Chance. I love the cover of her book and have had to hide it from my 15 yr old daughter. Anything with a horse on the front screams to be read by her. Hey, maybe she should do the review. :)
The rest of the books on my nightstand are all FIRST books for February:
  • Lessons From San Quentin by Bill Dallas
  • When God & Grief Meet by Lynn Eib
  • This Side of Heaven by Karen Kingsbury
  • Spring of Candy Apples by Debbie Viguie
  • Tuck by Stephen Lawhead (hasn't arrived yet)
  • Daniel's Den by Brandt Dodson
  • SirBentley & Holbrook Court by Chuck Black

Yes, those are all for FIRST WildCard! Yikes. Think I outdid myself for February. I've totally cut back looking into March. This is too many for my brain and being a single mom!!! So long sleep for February! :) I'm excited for all of them though! Wahoo & happy reading...Head over to 5 Minutes of Reading to see what other people have on their bookshelves.

Looks like you have some fun stuff there. Hood looks intriguing to me. I haven't read anything by Lawhead.

Thanks for sharing!

What a full list! I somehow missed #3 in the scrapbooker's series, so I will have to track that one down first. :)

My TBR list keeps getting longer and longer! Happy Reading.

Looks like you've got your hands
full. And I think we're even because I'm not familiar with your books either.:) Thanks for visiting my blog and happy reading.

What a bunch of cool reviews. The Hood/Tuck books look good! I need to remember to keep an eye out for those.

Wow! That's quite a list. And here I was thrilled about my 4! In answer to your question, I don't sleep much. :) And my hubby is getting on to me for that. It's hard though when I have so many thoughts whirling in my head of things I want to do. I'll sleep when the kids are grown. Right?
