What’s On My Nightstand–May

What's On Your Nightstand

It’s that time again, where readers post what they’re reading and link up over at 5 Minutes for Books.

I am currently reading…

The Count of Monte Cristo –nearly halfway through the over 1200 pages! Loving it!

How Do I Love Thee?–a novelization of the love story between Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Robert Browning by Nancy Moser, the author of Just Jane which I loved. Watch for a giveaway as part of 5 Minutes for Books Summer Fun Giveaway!

Get Outta My Face!–how to deal with angry teens; great for parents, teachers and youth leaders.

Comforts from the Cross–subtitled Celebrating the Gospel One Day at a Time. Wonderful.

Reading next (perhaps)…

The Disappearance of God, by Al Mohler

Finding an Unseen God, by Alicia Britt Chole

A Shelter in the Time of Storm by Paul David Tripp

Finally Alive by John Piper

Words Unspoken by Elizabeth Musser (fiction)

  1. I think I need to read the one about angry teens. I think I’ve got an angry preteen around here and I’m becoming a little concerned.I want to read the Al Mohler book, too – I need to add that one to my list. My list is growing. Maybe I need to write it down now.

  2. Whew! The linky’s up.I put everyone in.So–loving Monte Cristo, huh? I’m not sure that people would forgive us for doing another 1000+ page classic, but maybe if they have a few months to read it??

  3. I’m impressed with Monte Cristo. 🙂 Maybe one day I’ll venture that far…Let us know how you like “Finally Alive” when you read it. I want to read that one, too.

  4. I just finished Elizabeth Berg’s latest, “Home Safe.” Loved it (as I do every EB book).I’m doing my summertime run through of the Kick Keswick series by Marne Davis Kellogg: “Brilliant,” “Priceless,” “Perfect,” and “Friends in High Places.” This is NOT Christian fiction. Just good mystery/fiction about an intriguing woman who is also a jewel thief. These books are so much fun that I read them every summer.On the more serious side, I’m also reading “Grace Based Parenting” which I’m enjoying a lot.

  5. I'm impressed with Monte Cristo. 🙂 Maybe one day I'll venture that far…Let us know how you like "Finally Alive" when you read it. I want to read that one, too.
