What's on Your Nightstand 4-28-2009

This is my second month doing this post - I actually remembered it! This meme is hosted by Jennifer at 5 Minutes for Books.
Here are the books that I have finished this month:
  1. Lady Anne and the Howl in the Dark by Donna Lea Simpson. This was an arc from Sourcebooks and it was really good. I just received the second book in this series - Lady Anne and the Ghost's Revenge.
  2. An Offer You Can't Refuse by Jill Mansell was also an ARC from Sourcebooks. This one was a delightful British chick lit book. I also hosted Jill as my first author interview!
  3. Rachel's Tears by Beth Nimmo and Darrell Scott. This was an ARC from Thomas Nelson Publishers. I wanted to read it to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of the Columbine tragedy. It was heartwrenching.
  4. Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr. I read in preparation for Fragile Eternity which I have received as an ARC. I had never read a faery book before and this one was a great one to start with!
  5. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling. This was an audio book that I listened to whenever I was in my car. It had an ending that I was not prepared for but it was very good.
  6. The Boneman's Daughter by Ted Dekker. This was a galley that I received from Net Galley. It was my second Ted Dekker book and I loved it. I have since won a copy of the hardcover book as I plan on making his part of my permanent library.
  7. Fatal Illusions by Adam Blumer. This was a thriller that I read for a First Wild Card Tour. It was a great book with lots of twists. Also has a strong Christian foundation.
  8. The Girl She Used to Be by David Cristofano. This was an ARC I read for Hachette books. It was a good book, but not exactly what I was expecting.
  9. The Lost Hours by Karen White. My first Pump Up Your Book Tour and guest blogger - I loved this book and can say that it was one of my favorites this month!
  10. So Not Happening by Jenny B. Jones was read for a First Wild Card Tour. It was an okay book for me, but middle schoolers would probably love it.
  11. Murder, Mayhem and a Fine Man by Claudia Mair Burney I got from my library. I read the third book in this series - Deadly Charm - last month. I loved it so much I had to go find the first book!
  12. The Noticer by Andy Andrews I read for Thomas Nelson. This book was probably my quickest read this month, but definitely well worth it!

Nice job! You have some good boks here. I'm glad you are becoming a Ted Dekker fan. He is one of my favorite authors.

I am always glad to see a lengthy list such as mine.

I have Wicked Lovely sitting on my piano waiting to be read before going back to the library.

I want to read The Boneman's Daughter. I like Ted Dekker books.

Lady Anne and Howl in the Dark sounds real good. I need to put this one on my TBR list.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I got the second book in the Lady Anne series and I can't wait to read it. I really enjoyed the first one. Looks like you have some good reads coming up.
