My May Nighstand

Every month 5 Minutes for Books hosts their monthly meme, "What's On Your Nighstand?" (Not that you could tell by my blog because I've been a loser for a couple of months and haven't posted.)

Well, I'm jumping back on the bandwagon because I want to give you loyal readers a look at what should be coming up in the coming weeks:

Read and Waiting to be Reviewed...
In addition to the reviews I posted this month (Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging; Inexcusable; Love Sick; The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl; Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy; So Not Happening; American Wife; Hacking Harvard; City of Glass; Girls of Riyadh; The Mysteries of Pittsburgh; and Stop Me If You've Heard This Before), I have the following reviews of books I've read in May that I need to get up on the blog: The Time Traveler's Wife, Digging to America and Ordinary Love & Good Will that should be up before the end of the week.

To Be Read...
There are currently 126 books on my GoodReads TBR list, the next four that are rotating through the queue are: Hannah's Dream for my book club, A Prayer for Owen Meany as my literary fiction selection for the month, The Sunday Philosophy Club as my commerical fiction selection for the month, and Stealing Bradford as my YA book for the month. I'll probably get to more, but why set the bar too high, right?

The Future...
The most recent additions to my TBR came through a holiday weekend binge at 1/2-Price Books (because everything was 20% off). I got: The Accidental Tourist, Ladder of Years, and Saint Maybe all by Anne Tyler; Straight Man by Richard Russo; and Duplicate Keys by Jane Smiley.

20% off of Half-Price -- you gotta binge on that!!

I loved Hannah's Dream. I reviewed in on 5 Minutes for Mom a while ago, but the story and characters have stuck with me.

That's some impressive reading! I like Anne Tyler... I haven't read anything by her in ages. Thanks for the reminder.

I haven't read any of these. I hope you enjoy them!

I loved a Prayer for Owen Meany. I hope you like it. I do love the TBR list at GoodReads, although I just keep adding more and more on. I will never be able to say, "I don't know what to read."

Happy reading!

I loved A Prayer For Owen Meany. I could not get into Hannah's Dream, but will try it again.

What a deal on the Anne Tyler books - she is a favorite of mine. I think I have something of her's still in my TBR pile. You have a very interesting list for this month!

Jess said...

Wow -- you read a ton this month. Have a great week of reading!

Lindsay said...

Your TBR pile sounds just like mine :-) Have fun reading this month :-)
