February is just around the corner and per usual my nightstand is currently begging for mercy, and more books are on their way. This month I finished reading (and reviewed) Home by Julie Andrews (LOVED IT), The Lion The Witch & The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis (liked it, but not as much as I’d expected to) and Wicked by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie (which I’ll be reviewing later today, but suffice it to say it was terrific).
I’m currently reading The Horse & His Boy (book 3 in Chronicles of Narnia) by C.S. Lewis and Walk Away The Pounds by Leslie Sansone (I know, I’m a little bit obsessed – the book is actually really good so far btw).
And here are the books slated to be read next, some in my possession others on their way here via Amazon.com:
- The Perilous Journey by Trenton Lee Stewart
- Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
- Envy by Anna Godbersen (book 3 in The Luxe series)
- Lioness Rampant by Tamora Pierce (last book in the Alanna series)
- Something Rotten by Jasper Fforde (book 4 in Thursday Next series)
- The Host by Stephenie Meyer
- Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis (book 4 in Chronicles of Narnia)
What’s on YOUR nightstand this month?

Have only heard of Inkheart & the C.S. Lewis books. Not into Stephanie Meyer but enjoy Debbie Viguie books! Haven’t heard of this one though.
Thanks for sharing your list.

My coworker raves about Wicked, so I might have to take a look when it comes back to her. Home sounds neat; I hadn’t seen it before. Thanks for the great list!
Looks like a great list. There are some on there that I hope to read soon. The Host and Inkheart being 2 of them 🙂
I am so amazed that you can read several books @ a time. I’m trying to do that but only because I just got an order from Amazon w/ some of my favorite authors!
I’ve read some of your books. Not a lot though. When you get to the Host? Keep reading. My sisters & I all found it to be slow @ the beginning but then it reaches out & grabs you!
I haven’t started the Leslie Sansone book yet but I will. I’m glad that you are enjoying it; it gives me hope that I might too! Typically I don’t like anything like that.
I just picked up the Julie Andrews biography, so looking forward to that. Loved Inkheart and looking forward to hearing what you think about The Host as I have yet to read it.
I can’t wait to hear what you think of The Host!
I’m on my second week of reading “The Cider House Rules” by John Irving. It’s slow-going, which is typical John Irving–tons of detail and little action. The story is quite good but moves very, very slowly. Feels like I’ve been reading it forever and I’m only halfway through. The next book on my pile is either “The Color Purple” or “Possession.”
I’m going to have to suck it up and buy Home, as my library doesn’t carry it. They don’t carry Wicked either. BOTH are on my TBR lists. After reading your Nightstand, I may have to jump on Amazon and see what the going prices are. Happy Reading!
@ Amanda : I know what you mean – I started reading Inkheart last year and never finished it, but I feel like I remember liking the first few chapters and I think it was just another book that stole my attention away but I can’t remember, so I want to try it again before I go see the movie – haha
did I ever tell you that I just couldn’t get into Inkheart. I read the first page and I was like – gah, a whole nother world to immerse myself in and a whole new big cast to remember. just. can’t. do. it….If you end up liking it, let me know and I’ll have to give it another shot.
I’m currently reading What’s age got to do with it? and I feel like the author doesn’t understand that intellectual people are going to read her book. It’s wicked dumbed down…like to the point of defining osteoporosis. I mean, if you haven’t heard that term by now, go lay on some train tracks.
