What's On Your Nightstand

Every month the bloggers over at 5 Minutes for Books do a post where they summarise the books they’ve been reading for the past month. Anyone can join in and below is my summary for the month.

I finished reading three books since my last update which is much better than last check-in so I’m quite happy with that. Since my last update, I finished reading the following books:

  • Shake Hands with the Devil by Lt. Gen. Roméo Dallaire
  • The Six Sacred Stones by Matthew Reilly
  • The Sword of the Templars by Paul Christopher

I have three books on the go at the moment which are as follows

  • Knife of Dreams by Robert Jordan | This is a physical book I’m reading, it lives in the house because it’s too big and bulky to carry around with me.
  • Lost and Found by Amy Shojai | This is an ebook that I’m reading if I’m at work on my lunch break mostly, or on the go, or waiting for an appointment or something like that. I’ve been on annual leave the last couple of weeks so haven’t done much reading of this book lately.
  • The Girl Who Played with Fire by Steig Larsson | I had to use up a credit in my Audible account when I went to suspend it for a time so picked up this book which I’ve been meaning to read for years probably. Only a couple of hours to go on this book and then will be done!

I have an idea of the books I’d like to read next, I’m trying to line up one book for each of the challenges I’m doing just to give myself a bit of guidance on what to read next.

  • The Templar Cross by Paul Christopher | Mount TBR Challenge
  • The Five Greatest Warriors by Matthew Reilly | Library Love
  • Ice Station by Matthew Reilly | Library Love
  • Area 7 by Matthew Reilly | What’s In A Name
  • Scarecrow by Matthew Reilly | Wild Goose Chase

There’s a lot of Matthew Reilly on there, oops! I just need to read these few to get them off my list for various challenges and then I’ll be taking a break and changing up my reading a bit… and probably be dying for the change by then!

What books have you been reading the last month or so? Are there any books you’re reading now or are looking forward to reading in the near future?
