What's on Your Nightstand: How Many Obsessions Can One Momma Obsess Over?

Right now I’m reading Alanna: The First Adventure in the Songs of the Lioness series by Tamora Pierce. I first read Trickster’s Choice by Tamora Pierce a few months back, being intrigued by the snazzy cover, but after reading Trickster’s Choice and then Trickster’s Queen and realizing they were definitely not the first books in Pierce’s series, I decided I’d better go back and read at least some of the others. This book is much smaller, but the writing is equally good and so far I’m enjoying it a great deal, despite being oh so tired at night every time I sit down to read – so I’m not making much progress in spite of myself.

Next up on my list is Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs, whose books were the inspiration behind the tv series Bones on Fox, which you may or may not know I’m obsessed with – almost as obsessed as I am with Grey’s Anatomy. Almost. Okay, let’s face it, I just live to be obsessed with things – from the days of Buffy, Dawsons Creek and Gilmore Girls (and the Backstreet Boys) to today with Grey’s, Bones and John Mayer.

After that I’ll either get on to Family Tree by Barbara Delinsky which looks wonderful or else get onto reading Pride and Prejudice for the Classics Bookclub on 5 Minutes for Books – which I’ll need to read by September 2 or else risk disappointing myself utterly and entirely.

Rumors by Anna Godberson

I also REALLY want to read Rumors by Anna Godberson, the follow up book to The Luxe which was just as luxurious to read as it was enticing, thrilling, and fabulous. That book just had me dying to wear some fabulous evening gown and dance the night away with a forbidden lover, who would turn out to be my husband because, well, at the end of the day, he’s the only one I want to dance the night away with, but in a fabulous evening gown, wouldn’t it still be dreamy and wonderful?

Don’t you want to curl up with a good book now? What’s on YOUR nightstand? You can tell me in comments, post about it on your own blog and of course, link up to 5 Minutes for Books and check out what other people are reading, too!

    Wow, you aren’t kidding when you say you blog a lot! I am so excited that somebody else likes Jasper Fforde and that you are going to start reading the Tuesday Next books. They are a lot of fun. Thanks for stopping by and saying hi. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Don’t you just hate when you dont have enough energy to read a good book, either being to busy or just to tired. I am going to read pride and prejudice next as well ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. Jen E says:

    haha maybe utterly and entirely was a bit strong. I just really want to take part and now’s as good a time as any. ๐Ÿ™‚


  4. At least books are a healthy and edifying obsession–at least that’s what I tell myself!!

    And gosh, don’t put too much pressure on yourself about the bookclub. I think it’s a pretty easy read, but I have to make sure I get to it too.

    I also have a mild (well, maybe a little more than mild… FINE! it’s out of control!)obsession with books. I love them. Anyway… the one and only book on my nightstand at the moment is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I’ve been re-reading them this sumemr. After that, I have a massive pile of new books waiting to be devoured ๐Ÿ™‚
