What's on your nightstand? (September)

I'm not going to push myself next month--instead, I plan to read purely for enjoyment.

.
.
.
.

So, I'll continue listening to Anna Karenina, which I've been inching through this month. It's so different from War and Peace! After the grinding battle scenes of that novel, I would never have guessed that Tolstoy could write a purely social tale.
.
.
.
.
.
.
Then, I've been meaning to read the next Lady Julia Grey mystery. Thank goodness I found this pink cover. The original design is hideously Harlequin. Now, thanks to the alternate image, I really want to read Silent on the Moor!
.
.
.
.

And finally, there are five YA titles coming in at the library. Catching Fire, which I've been waiting for all year!
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.

The Miles Between, because I really liked Pearson's The Adoration of Jenna Fox;
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.


A Season of Gifts, because hello! It's about Grandma Dowdel;
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.

and The Unfinished Angel, because I worshiped Creech as a teenager. Let's hope this novel channels her early work.
.
.
.
.
.
.

Oh, also, Be a Genie in Six Easy Steps, because it purports to be to Nesbit what Any Which Wall is to Eager. How could I resist?


What about your nightstand?

I'm eagerly awaiting Catching Fire too! Love the Julia Grey series.

Hmmm. Only the genie one looks good today. This could be because my "to read" list is quickly approaching 200 books!

200? Girl, you need to sit down and read! And maybe prioritize titles! :)
