What's on my Nightstand?

What's On Your Nightstand

I'm still working through the Bible in 90 Days Chronological Reading Plan so my "other" reading has gone down a bit this month.

  • Jonah
  • Amos
  • Isaiah
  • Michah
  • Proverbs
  • Psalms
  • Nahum
  • Habakkuk
  • Zephaniah
  • Lamentations
  • Obadiah
  • Ezekiel
  • 2 Kings
  • Jeremiah
  • 2 Chronicles
  • Daniel
  • Haggai

As always, links are to my full reviews.

Christian Fiction
  • The Quilt by T. Davis Bunn, Davis Bunn - 4 stars. A heart warming story!
  • A Passion Most Pure by Julie Lessman - 1 star. For a book titled A Passion Most Pure, there is a lot of passion. Way too much for my taste. I cannot recommend it.

Christian Nonfiction
General Nonfiction
Secular Fiction
  • Time and Again by Jack Finney - 4 stars. Fantastic time travel story with NYC as the main character. I wish they'd turned it into a movie!

Currently Reading Last month I added three books to my list due to the Nightstand posts. I read two off my to-read list. Not bad! Of course, we'll see how many get added this month...

Happy reading!!

Love the diversity in your list. Makes it more fun when you have a choice of book to pick up. There are several on your list that I need to add to mine.

I have never been disappointed with T. Davis Bunn. The Chronological reading plan sounds interesting. I like how you have organized your reading lists.

Good to know about Blessing Your Husband. I won't seek it out then.

What is with the steamy Christian novels these days? That's one of the reasons why I read Christian romance instead of the run-of-the-mill stuff. SO frustrating.

Kudos to you for reading the Bible through in 90 days yet again--you're still getting plenty of reading done.

I have finished exactly zero books since my last nightstand.

I am waiting for With Every Letter from the library and can't wait to read it.

I tried reading A Passion Most Pure two different times and gave up on it. Glad to know I didn't miss anything.

I LOVED Time and Again! I haven't read the sequel though, I've heard it wasn't as good.

A nice list. I like your ratings and quick thoughts!

Too much passion...ugh!!

Wasn't With Every Letter great? I loved it. Loved North and South, too. I don't think I have read that one by Bunn but I like him generally -- will have to look that one up. Thanks for the warning about A Passion Most Pure. I had seen that title but hadn't looked into it yet. I probably won't. "Less is more" in that department.

Very interesting list, I am planning on checking out a few of them. Happy November reading!

Sounds like some nice reads on this list. I may have to check out Time and Again - sounds very interesting!

I did the Bible in 90 Days a few years back. It actually took me 180 days to complete, but I did it! I think what made it possible for me is that I had a newborn at the time and spent a lot of time rocking and nursing him. Maybe I'll try it again next spring when I have another newborn.

Congratulations for sticking with it!
