On My Nightstand: January Week 3

What's On Your Nightstand


5 Minutes for Books hosts a monthly meme called "What's on Your Nightstand?" so here's what is currently next to my bed, after the changeover from last week.

Progress is being made in my two non-fiction books: Finding Favor with the King as well as the accompanying devotional. This coming week I am planning to focus a little more on the book itself.

I didn't start the last book in the Gresham Chronicles, The Diary of Miss Lydia Clark, so that book will get moved over to this week. I did finish Every Now and Then by Karen Kingsbury and also A Constant Heart by Siri Mitchell.

A Constant Heart was interesting - life during the times of Queen Elizabeth and what it was like living as a courtier in her courts. The story was told from the perspectives of a husband and wife who (gasp) were actually in love with each other and the danger that it could be in that time. At first it was a little strange having the story switch back and forth from one person's perspective to the other, but it definitely added a different aspect to the story.

Here's the current stack next to my bed (or scattered around the house):

  • The Dowry of Miss Lydia Clark - Lawana Blackwell
  • Whirlwind - Cathy Marie Hake
  • Finding Favor with the King: Daily Inspirations- Tenney
  • Finding Favor with the King - Tenney

Are there any books that you are reading that I should think about for my pile? Let me know what you are reading that you would recommend!

  2. I wanted to pick up the Outliers by Gladwell, Jamaica Inn by DuMaurier and Crossing to Safety by Stegner. I was feeling like some reading lately.
