What's On My Nightstand ::: May

Photobucket

June ... is going to be my month to step back. To relax amidst much busy-ness. To read a few things that have been sitting on my shelf for a while that I am *going* to get to! :) With that, here are some of my aspirations for the month:

I'm guessing I will read more than those four books this month, but those are the ones that I really want to hit, along with personal Bible reading (thinking I'm going to dive into some of the Psalms this summer, and maybe one of the epistles ... I John?? 1 Peter??) I just finished Inkdeath, the third book in Cornelia Funke's Inkheart trilogy and that took me a good week and a half to get through. One, because I have had busy days and only read in the evenings after girls were in bed ... and two, a-hem, in spite of how good it was, I had a hard time staying awake. :) I'm also about 1/3 of the way through Everyone is Beautiful which is the 5M4B June bookclub selection.

Head over to Five Minutes for Books for more nightstand posts!

    I'm not familiar with any of those. Looks like some good ones to explore!

  2. You're Welcome! I am just as happy that I stumbled across the Austin Family Chronicles as well. They're SO comforting.

    We are about halfway through the Young Unicorns, and actually have a Ring of Endless Light on audio, so I'm planning to listen to that in July on our big car trip.

    I can't wait to read your review of Last CHild in the Woods. I've seen it mentioned on lots of homeschooling blogs, etc., but I've never actually laid eyes on it myself.

    I tried Everyone Is Beautiful, but it wasn't for me. I'm curious to see what everyone else says about it, though.

    I've heard of Last Child in the Woods. Sounds interesting.

    I still haven't gotten a copy of Everyone Is Beautiful. Every bookstore I've gone to doesn't have it in stock! I'm definitely eager to read that one...I hope you enjoy it!

  7. I requested EIB from the library, hope I get it in the next day or two!

  8. I've started reading L'Engle's Time series and really enjoy it. I bought Inkheart after we saw the movie but just haven't gotten to it yet. Our libraries either don't have EIB or it is checked out, so I don't know if I'll get it read in time for the book club or not. I'm eager to read the reviews on that one!

    Looks like a great list! I need to be better about picking books that have been on my list for a while :-)
