My Imaginary Nightstand

I don't actually have a nightstand! But I do have a towering pile of books next to my bed. I wanted to take a clever picture for this feature, but time got away from me, so here are some of the books I'll be tackling in the next week or so.

Searching for Spice by Megan DiMaria is about a woman who wants to have an affair with her husband! This is actually due for review tomorrow, so come back and see what I have to say about it! :)

Daphne by Justine Picardie This book already released across the ocean to great reviews by the Brit book bloggers. I've been dying to read it and was thrilled when I was sent an ARC. It's the story of Daphne du Maurier who wrote Rebecca, but also wrote The Infernal World of Branwell Bronte. I've always been a bit fascinated by the Brontes.

The Painter from Shanghai by Jennifer Cody Epstein. I have a great fondness for stories that take place in Asia and Julie at Booking Mama gave this one a great review.

And finally Watership Down by Richard Adams. I think. I need to complete a book for the LOST books challenge by the 15th and I think this is the one I'm going to tackle. (Unfortunately, I chose a bunch of really chunky books)

Head on over to 5 Minutes for Books to see what everyone else is reading!

But first tell me if you've read any of the books on my nightstand or what's on yours!

I love reading books set in different places as well.

I didn't get a clever picture taken either.

I read Watership Down a few years ago and was surprised how much I loved it.

You don't have a nightstand? Do you have a floor lamp? I am embarrass to say that I have two nightstands. One was made by my husband, since I couldn't find one that would work. I also have an old sewing machine table I use as the "next on my list" to read books.

Thanks for posting this!

I haven't read any of the books you are reading, but I do have Watership Down in my TBR pile. That was one of the books I chose for you challenge. ;) I think once I finish the book I'm reading now I'll start on Harry Potter so I'll be able to have a review on the 15th for ya.

The book that I'm currently reading is Crucial Conversations: Tools for talking when the stakes are high. It's actually not as boring as it sounds.

I tried reading some fiction this month, but the book I chose wasn't so good.

Next on my list, though, is a book called Snobbery. I can't remember who it's by, but it just is a non-fiction work about snobbery in America. Elitism based on fashion, cars, child's education, whatever!

Should be good.

Watership Down is the only one I've read on this list, but it was fascinating!

I want to do this too, but I already have way too many posts for this week!

I'm sure I'll still have quite a list to post next time! (next month?)
