What’s On YOUR Nightstand?

There’s nothing better on a rainy day to sit on the porch, listen to the rain, and enjoy delving into a new book. With plenty of rain this past week we’ve had plenty of time to do just that! I’m currently digging into Lisa Wingate’s The Book of Lost Friends, on the heels of finishing an incredible read from Sue Monk Kidd, The Book of Longings. Just… wow! Highly recommended.

Also on my nightstand, Grady Hendrix’s The Southern Guide to Slaying Vampires, and of course the latest brilliant addition to the Hunger Games collection, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins. And, rounding out the pile, I’m nearly finished with the non-fiction title Joy at Work with Marie Condo. If you’re still wallowing in the “now normal” it offers great solutions for organizing our office space, wherever that may be!

  1. I’ve also finished The Book ofLongings–and ditto to you–WOW! What a beautiful voice for women.
    Currently in Hilary Mantel’s The Mirror and The Light. It’s very long and very politically involved with Henry VIII–but I’ve read the other 2 in the trilogy, so I am enjoying this one as well. She is also an outstanding writer.
