My nightstand is overflowing with some really interesting reads lately. Unfortunately it’s been a bit of a busy week and I haven’t had a chance to spend as much time with my reads as I would like to but I did want to share a few notes on my current reads with you. So here they are:
Upstream by Mary Oliver. I started this book of essays on New Year’s day and have slowly read an essay or two here and there. These are like wonderful moments captured reminding us to be observant and to enjoy nature. I think it might rain quite a bit this weekend and I may have family in town but if things change and it’s a great day, then I want to go outside and look at trees and watch for surprises in nature.
The Apprentice by Tess Gerritsen. As I mentioned earlier this week, this is my audiobook for the gym. So far this has been a great audio and easy to keep up with as there’s quite a bit of action. A dead body on the first paragraph, first page.
Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. I carried over this book from last year. I am putting sticky notes all over and enjoying this one a lot.
Lock The Door by Jane Holland. A missing baby and a lot of suspects. I’m trying to read this one during my lunch break and so far I like it. I have my suspicions so I’m looking forward to see if I am right.
The Woman Who Walked In Sunshine by Alexander McCall Smith. I just started this one the other night but it’s the one I will have to focus on this weekend as it’s my book group read and we meet next week. Despite not having kept up with the series I don’t feel left out. The characters are just as I remember them and I’m happy to see that things are still going well for Mma Ramotswe and her friends and family.
So that’s what’s on my nightstand. What are you reading? Hope you have a wonderful weekend and more book talk soon!
