What's On Your Nightstand June 2009

This monthly feature is hosted by 5 Minutes for Books on the last Tuesday of every month. Click on the logo to go and check out all the particpants.






From last month's list I read and reviewed Dry, Inkheart, and Just Take My Heart. I worked a little bit on John Adams but as you can see it is still there for this month!

This month from the bottom up, I have, John Adams, that I am reading ever so slowly for the U.S President's Reading Project. Then there is Lady Elizabeth by Alison Weir which is the June selection for the Facebook Historical fiction book club moderated by Jennifer at The Literate Housewife. The Devil in the Junior League is leftover from last month, it was one of my "D" possibilities for the A-Z Reading Challenge. I didn’t pick it for that challenge but I still want to read it. Next is Goodnight Nobody by Jennifer Weiner. That's what I picked for my "G" book for the A-Z Reading Challenge. The Last Queen by C.W. Gortner is the July book for the Facebook Historical Fiction book club. And finally, Zapped by Carol Higgins Clark is my "Z" book for the A-Z Reading Challenge unless something better comes along because Zapped got a very lukewarm review from my friend who passed it on to me at our No Stress Book Club.

Thanks for commenting on my Nightstand!

Re: A Thousand Splendid Suns -- I have started it. I read a few chapters, and thought it was good, but it didn't totally grab me. It's on my Kindle, so I really want to save it for my trip anyway (so I don't have to lug more books than needed).

But after I wrote that post, I started thinking about a certain character -- a young woman in a burqa -- and wondered, "Who was that? I know I read it recently, but can't think of any books it fit." It was that book, and now I'll be going back to it soon for sure!

I really like my reading of John Adams. I guess I am not much for non-fiction as the read is going slow for me. The story itself is not slow just my reading.

Great books there have fun working through them.

Thanks for visiting my blog, in regards to your question about the Undead series if you didnt like the first one then you probably wont like the others. They dont deviate much. I dont mind them because they are quick light and fluffy.
