It’s nightstand time again! Review books are still on the slow side so I’ve read quite a few personal reads this month. I only have 6 more categories to finish for the Pop Sugar challenge. I did write a few reviews though, and have a few outstanding as always.
Tell me, have you read anything good lately?

On my nightstand: The Guest Cottage by Nancy Thayer for a book by an author with your initials. She also happens to share my first name!
Listening to: Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand. I also have Winter Stroll so I’ll review the two together.
Reviews and Other Posts:
- Who Do You Love by Jennifer Weiner, read by Sarah Steele and JD Jackson. The on again-off again romance of Rachel and Andy, who first meet as 8 year olds in an ER.
- Pretending to Dance by Diane Chamberlain, read by Susan Bennett. The process of adopting a baby brings back memories of the worst summer of a woman’s life.
- The Bazaar of Bad Dreams by Stephen King. A collection of short stories, almost all of them are fantastic.
- Girls Who Travel by Nicole Trilivas. Cute story, a little short on the traveling part of the title but I enjoyed it.
- Blood Red by Jason Bovberg – a book set in your hometown. Horror about a young woman who wakes up to find 95% of her town is dead, with a red glow coming out of their heads. Are they really dead? Are they zombies? Aliens? It’s the first in a trilogy.
- The Edible Woman by Margaret Atwood – a popular author’s first book. I enjoyed this story of a woman who begins to be unable to eat after her engagement. Lots of “English class” and feminist stuff in here, great book.
- Harvest Home by Thomas Tryon – a book set the year you were born, a book that scares you (though it didn’t actually scare me). A couple moves to a remote New England village where the residents are stuck in the past. This was not as good as I expected, and as I said, it didn’t scare me.
- Taking a Shot by Jaci Burton – a classic romance, recommended by my friend the librarian who’s a romance expert. Some hot sex, with lots of body parts quivering in anticipation, and a decent plot.
That’s it for me this month. Check out 5 Minutes for Books for what’s on nightstands across the globe!
