What's On Your Nightstand - June

What's On Your Nightstand 

I have so much I want to read, a so little time to do it in. I am hoping to have a better month this month, but it seems like my life is not my own during the summer months. I have have picked 6 books for this month and that is because I couldn't decided if I wanted to read Sayers or Heyer. I imagine I'll only get one of them read, but I can attempt it!

 For July's Nightstand:

From June's Nightstand I read:
 I didn't read:
  • Hitty Her First Hundred Years by Rachel Fields - I was too busy reading other books and I really forgot it was on my list. Hopefully I will get to it this month.
I also read:
  • Gaudy Night: A Lord Peter Wimsey Mystery with Harriet Vane by Dorothy Sayers - Finally, a resolution to the romance of Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane. The only problem was the answer to the question was written in Latin. Do you know how much Latin I know? Zilch!! Thank the Lord for Google!
  • Moms' Night Out by Tricia Goyer - I was too impatient for the film to come out on DVD. Since this was actually turned into a book from the screen play I think the film will be better. Not that I didn't enjoy the book, but it just felt like it was written to be seen.
  • A Noble Groom by Jody Hedlund - What happens when your daughter falls in love with a man who turns out to be the son of a nobleman who you accuse of murdering your son? You have to read it to find out! More fluff, but since I was so busy with my parents here and hosting parties for my son who thought he needed to graduate, fluff was just right.
  • A Life in Balance: Discovery of a Learning Breakthrough by Frank Belgau - Interesting read about learning and the brain told as a memoir. (Review)
  I listened to:  
  • Venetia by Georgette Heyer- I just realized that this was abridged. Oh well, it was perfect for my drive back and forth to the Homeschool Convention I attended last week end.


  1. In Latin?!?!? No way! :)

    I loved Mom's Night Out. It hit the spot! (The movie, I mean--haven't read the book.)

  2. I haven't read or watched Mom's Night Out but I've heard it's good.

    Some times are good for fluff reading. I've been reading more nonfiction and heavy classics than usual, so I am about ready for some fluff.

    I've not read Heyer or Sayers. Maybe someday?
