What's On My Nightstand


I have never taken part of What's On Your Nightstand? hosted by 5 Minutes for Books. I certainly have plenty of things in my numerous TBR piles, but here's what I have plans of reading soon!
Currently am reading:
Shanghai Girls by Lisa See (I am almost finished and am totally loving it!)
Jane in Bloom by Deborah Lytton (middle grade novel - fast, so I hope I can finish it tonight).
Here Burns My Candle by Liz Curtis Higgs- I am going to finish this one up, too, since I am on the blog tour for this title.
What's Up Next: Even though I have bought a ton of books that are just waiting for me, I have to look at my library pile. Coming up on the top of that stack:
Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valdez
I wish that my TBR pile wasn't so overwhelming - it sort of takes some of the pleasure out of reading. I love to read, but I would also love to relax a bit more while doing it. My pile of ARCs is getting bigger as is my own stack of stuff and the library books take up a pretty good chunk of space as well. This should be easy to solve since I am the one in control of all of the above, yet it is impossible for me to say no to a book - I would much rather have it in my stack with the opportunity to read it than let it go to someone else.
The weather is beautiful today, so I am hoping for some relaxation time to sit around and read later this evening.

I really enjoy Liz Curtis Higgs. I need to add Here Burns My Candle to my list. Happy Reading!

Here Burns My Candle was good. I am doing well with my goal to be very selective with tour books, it lessens the pressure.

Wench and Shanghai Girls were great; enjoy.
