What's On Your Nightstand?

What’s On Your Nightstand? – January

It is once again time for 5 Minutes for BooksWhat’s on Your Nightstand?  I love seeing what others are reading, and always end up adding another book (or five!) to my own list.

.What's On Your Nightstand

.

This is the stack on my nightstand this month:

 

.

The Bruised Reed, by Richard Sibbes

Unfashionable, by Tullian Tchividjian

Should We Leave Our Churches?, by J. Ligon Duncan & Mark Talbot

War of Words, by Paul Tripp

Worldly Saints, by Leland Ryken

Adopted for Life, by Russell Moore

The Joy of a Word-Filled Family, by John Barnett

So Much More, by Anna Sofia & Elizabeth Botkin

Nourishing Traditions, by Sally Fallon

 .

And, of course, I am still keeping up with the Bible in 90 Days!

 .

Yes, I have quite a stack! 

.

And, I couldn’t help myself.  I just ordered 2 more books (Dug Down Deep, by Joshua Harris, and You Can Still Wear Cute Shoes, by Lisa McKay), and I am eagerly anticipating their arrival.  There is also a third book in there that, technically, I ordered “for my husband.”  But, I am looking forward to getting my hands on it as well…when he is finished with it, of course.

.

But, those will simply replace the two books that I have already finished.  I have been reading War of Words with my ladies Bible study group, and we will be discussing the last chapter next week!  (So, I am almost finished with that one!)  And, I recently finished So Much More, by the Botkin sisters, and I am currently working on a review, that I hope to post in the somewhat near future.

.

I’d love to elaborate a little more on each book, but, the laundry pile is calling my name…loudly, and threatening to take over the entire house if I don’t get in there and do something about it!  Okay, not really, but the dryer is buzzing, so I’d better get back to work.

Don’t forget to link up over at 5 Minutes for Books, and let us know What’s on Your Nightstand this month!

  1. Ha ha — the BEST gift books are books given with ulterior motives. I’ve done that myself. In fact, once I read a book (very very gently) before I gave it away, even though I had bought it with the intent of giving it to that person.

    1. Jennifer,
      My poor husband…I do that to him all the time! Actually, 2 of the books on this list used to belong to him…Used to. 😉 He finds a book, reads it, tells me how good it was, and then I steal it from him. 🙂

  2. This looks like a wonderful list. Happy Reading!

  3. My laundry is calling too but I’m plugging my ears!

    Your stack looks fun!

    As a side note – I love the title and subtitle of your blog! Now I’ve got to vote on your sidebar here….

    Thanks for linking up with us this month!

  4. Hi Veronica
    I love your blog design/header. I read mostly Christian fiction but a few non fiction too. One of my goals this year is to read more classics and more non fiction. 🙂

    1. Brittanie – I used to read a lot of Christian fiction, but kind of got away from it in college (no time). Now, I just haven’t read it in so long, I don’t really know what is out there anymore (or any good). So, I’m excited to get some ideas/recommendations from others. I am looking forward to adding a few more of the classics (some that I read in school, and some that I never “had” to read) this year, too! 🙂

  5. Thank you for the reviews and the list. I just requested The Joy of a Word Filled Family and also You can still wear…shoes. I look forward to reading them.

  6. The Joy of a Word-Filled Family really caught my eye. I’m going to be looking for it. Your reading list looks great!

  7. I’m so wanting to read Dug Down Deep! You’ve got a great list!!!

  9. […] I am a little late with this Week in Words, because I have spent basically all of February (so far) fighting, and finally, it would seem, recovering from bronchitis.  It has been brutal!  But, after a round of antibiotics, and multiple cough medicines, I am feeling much better!!  The bright side, if there is one, of feeling so awful for so long is that I have had plenty of time to work on my reading list!!  […]
