Today I am participating in my first edition of "What's on Your Nightstand" with 5 Minutes for Books, which occurs on the 4th Tuesday of each month. So, if you love to read, please join in!
So, Here we go!
What I Read This Month
(Reviews coming soon!)
The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
I went out of order reading The Top 100 Children's Novels because I wanted to see the Hugo movie, but read the book first. I never made it to the movie.
(Preview: Loved It!)
The Dragon's Tooth by N.D. Wilson
My sister and her family gave this to me for Christmas and I couldn't wait to read it, so, again, went off my plan. Wilson's first trilogy, 100 Cupboards, is one of my absolute favorites and the new book did not disappoint!
(Preview: LOVED it!)
What I'm Reading Now
Depression: A Stubborn Darkness, Light For the Path by Edward T. Welch
This is taking me FOREVER to read. It's good, but non-fiction doesn't compel me to read as much. I have a few chapters left, so my goal is to finish this before I move on to any fiction! I'm reading this because I've struggled with depression-and probably will on and off my entire life (though I am in a period of peace now). I like it because it addresses the many aspects of depression-physical, chemical, spiritual, experiential, etc.
What's In the Plans for Next Month:
Love That Dog by Sharon Creech (Children's Fiction)
Tears of My Soul by Himm Sokreaksa (Autobiography)
The Borrowers by Mary Norton (Children's Fiction)
My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George (Children's Fiction)
