Books On My Nightstand

I have a problem with not being able to just read one book at a time. This is a problem because then I end up with piles of books around my room (clearly I need a bookshelf). But at the same time I love it because then I always have something to read based on what mood I'm in.

Here is what is currently on my nightstand, or in one of the many piles in my room:


Even though I've just barely started this book I've loved what I've read so far. It has so many great 
ideas for bloggers, experienced and beginners!  Here is a great review of the book by Haley at The Beautiful Exchange.




I'm a little over half way done with this book and I love it so far. The 'Heroes of Olympus' series is about a group of young demigods trying to save the world from being destroyed by a few different powerful ancient Gods. Rjordan mixes modern day with greek mythology in such a fun way. I've always been a big fan of Rick Rjordan's books because I love greek mythology. If you're looking for a fun easy read this series would be a choice. 




I know I posted about this book here and since I'm writing about it in this post it clearly means I haven't finished it. But when I do get a chance to sit and read a few pages I love it. I like reading it at a slow pace because it gives me a chance to really think about what a great man Joseph Smith was. You know how people always ask the question, "if you could have lunch with any person who would it be?". I'd definitely pick Joseph Smith. 


Remember when I said my world was rocked by some unfortunate news here? Well the day I got the news my dad handed me this book. Fun fact about Sierra N.C. Burton: She loves Elder Jeffrey R. Holland. I quote him regularly. My dad knew this and boy has this book been amazing. I've never really studied Psalms, read it yes, studied it no. But this is helping me see them in a whole new way and learn some new ideas and principles.


I picked up Persuasion because I realized I hadn't read all of Jane Austen's books yet and I was pretty disappointed in myself for that. So first stop, Persuasion. At first I really had a hard time getting into the book but I didn't give up and so far I'm enjoying it. It is your typical Victorian Era book, full of love, drama and etiquette. 


I think the title says it all. I'm excited to see how this book will help me living a more full life!

What books are on your "nightstand" right now?

  5. I have the most eclectic reading taste--right now, I have the travel guide "Weird Carolinas" right next to Peter Ackroyd's "Shakespeare: The Biography." I blame it on the massive amounts of stuff that I had to read in my English grad program. If you like Georgian/ Victorian literature like Jane Austen, I'd highly recommend Wilkie Collins (especially "The Moonstone" and "The Woman in White"). There's more suspense in Collins than there is in Austen, which is partially why I prefer his works to Austen!

  22. These seem like such awesome books! I just found your blog and I love it! Right now I have just been reading my Book of Mormon and The Bible with my hubby. I have a little 9 month old, so I feel like I have no time to read. You have encouraged me to read more though just by looking at your book selection :)

  25. I'm going to have to look into blog inc... I'm intrigued!

  26. I have the Blog Inc book too! Great for newbie reference, and it inspired me to get TM protection and set up a LLC... but I think that's about it for me. :)

    My recent reading includes The Confidence Code - I actually haven't started reading it yet, but I heard Claire Shipman talk at a conference, and I loved it.
