I have anxiously been awaiting this months What’s on Your Nightstand? because it seems like forever since the last one happened. Plus I’ve done a lot of reading this month and have a lot coming up.

The last book I finished was The Reader. I did a duel review because I also saw the film. The reviews can be found here and here.

I have been taking my time on reading If You Want to Write by Brenda Ueland, which will hopefully help inspire me to sit down and start writing again. I am also starting The Host for book club this coming month. I’ve heard mixed reviews about it so hopefully I will enjoy it.

The Winter Reading Challenge ends March 20, 2009 so my next five books will be dedicated directly to this. They are:

  • A Thousand Acres by Jane Smiley
  • Mystic River by Dennis Lehane
  • Pop Goes the Weasel by James Patterson
  • C is for Corpse by Sue Grafton
  • Three to Get Deadly by Janet Evanovich

Most of these also correspond with other challenges as well so I’m looking forward to reading all of them.

So, what’s on your nightstand?
