What’s On My Nightstand


I haven’t played along with this meme in…forever!  I promise I have been reading, and yes, something other than rereading Harry Potter (mostly.)

IMG_1202 Top of the pile there is 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, author of Love In The Time of Cholera.  Click on that link and read the Amazon.com review and you will see what you are in for with this book lol.  I am not really all that interested in it but I’ve invested several evenings already so I figure I better see it through.  Next is Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen.  That one I am excited to read, but I had just read her book The Girl Who Chased The Moon and figured I should read something else in between (why I chose a Gabriel Marquez book I do not know lol.)  Bottom of the pile is the boys’ current reading book for school, The Call Of The Wild.  We just finished The Jungle Book, I guess they are wanting to stay with an animal theme.

Now in full disclosure, the stack of books above does not technically reside on my nightstand.  That’s an end table in my living room.  This is my nightstand…

Keeping it real, Julie  :)


  1. I really loved Garden Spells, hope you like it, too!

  2. I loved The Call of the Wild, and I enjoyed One Hundred Years even though magic realism is not my favourite. I hope you enjoy it. Have fun reading in February. My Nightstand post is up.

  3. That sounds great. I´ll check out if I can get it in German too.
    I currently read German Thriller .

  4. Classics are always a nice reread. I'm reading Vanity Fair again.

  5. Looks like you have some fun books going there.

    I'm visiting from the crew blogwalk.

  6. I read Love in the Time of Cholera a couple years back and was astounded by how much I did NOT enjoy it... I haven't been too anxious to try another by the author, but never say never, right? :)

  7. I know that version of Call of the Wild! I read it when I was a kid. :)

    Looks like you got some great books here!

  8. I, too, remember that version of Call of the Wild--but not because I've read it. My parents owned it and we had it on our bookshelf growing up, but I never was even tempted to crack it open. I suppose you could say I rejected the call! :-)


Thanks for stopping by!
