It’s time for the February installment of What’s On Your Nightstand, a book meme hosted by the lovely ladies at 5 Minutes For Books.
Last night I finished devouring Revenge of the Spellmans the latest Spellman installment by Lisa Lutz. I think it’s safe to say I completely utterly adored it. I have some pretty incredible series in my rotation right now and this one is no different. It’s described as Harriet the Spy meets Stephanie Plum meets Dirty Harry. All I can say is it’s awesome. Terrific writing, intriguing plots, lovable characters. There is one small completely unsatisfying kiss in this book (if you follow the series, you will know who I’m talking about) that actually brought tears to my eyes and that’s all I will say about that. Loved it.
I’m still needling my way through Walk Away the Pounds by Leslie Sansone. I am enjoying it (you know the tiny bit I’ve read) but I’m terrible at reading nonfiction and haven’t made the least bit of progress with it. Ho hum. The best I can say for myself here is that I’m doing better with her DVDs than her book – that’s something, right? And again it’s no reflection on the book – I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every page I’ve read. I’m just strange.
So the books slated to be read next area:
- Lioness Rampant by Tamora Pierce
- Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
- House of Dark Shadows by Robert Liparulo
- The Perilous Journey by Trenton Lee Stewart (sequel to Mysterious Benedict Society)
- The Host by Stephenie Meyer
And two others on their way from Amazon…
- God’s Debris by Scott Adams
- The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins

I need to read a Tamora Pierce book. I have seen post about her books and each and every time I am intrigued. The one you have listed sounds great.
You really need to get to The Host, and soon.
I have nothing on my nightstand – I wish I did! I need to get cracking and read more books – not blogs!
The Host is hanging in there on the bestseller’s list. Hope to get to it soon!
The kids’ books on your list are ones I’ve been wanting to read.
The walking away the pounds book sounds very interesting book. What a great list 🙂
House of dark Shadows sounds good. I haven’t read the Host yet – can’t wait to hear what you think of it.
I just ordered House of Dark Shadows from amazon today. Look forward to reading it. I probably should have ordered inkheart as well but next time. Happy Reading.
I really need to get up to date on all the great series books. Guess I’m never sure what to look for unless someone proclaims their love for it. I get so overwhelmed at the bookstore and rarely get to browse at my own leisure as there’s always a kid demanding my undivided attention. I shall again add the first of the series and rest to my TBR pile.
I really liked House of Dark Shadows. I have read Walk Away the Pounds but didn’t do very well with the DVD. Maybe I will get it from the library again.
