What's on my nightstand: May

Last month, I started participating in the What's on Your Nightstand meme over at 5 Minutes for Books. Last month was a somewhat unproductive reading month - after I finished off "Pretty in Plaid" last week, I had a really hard time picking out a new book to read (in part because I loved the book so much that nothing else was as captivating or funny as it was).

Here's what's on my nightstand for the next month:
1. The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
2. New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
3. Sunday Money by Jeff Macgregor (Husband is nowhere near finishing this one, so I haven't even started yet)
4. Everyone is Beautiful by Katherine Center
5. It Sucked and Then I Cried by Heather Armstrong
6. The Devil in the Junior League by Linda Francis Lee

Here's what left my nightstand this month:
1. The Middle Place by Kate Corrigan
2. Still Alice by Lisa Genova
3. Pretty in Plaid by Jen Lancaster
4. Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics by Ina Garten
5. Barefoot Contessa at Home by Ina Garten

I'm sure some of you are wondering why "New Moon" is still on my nightstand after it being there last month, but for whatever reason I just haven't been in the right mood for it yet. I fully plan to pick it up after I finish off the Marian Keyes book I'm reading now. I adore Marian Keyes. She's hilarious.

So tell me what's on your nightstand...are you reading a mystery? A biography? A romance? I'd love to hear all about it! Some of the best books I've ever read were recommended by other people.

I've heard great things about The Glass Castle..and the title It Sucked and Then I Cried has me intrigued!

I have just finished. The Book of Negros. All I can say is Wow. I started reading this book and couldn't stop. I was hiding in the bathroom to get through it...staying up really late and even reading while cooking. Highly recommend.

I found The Glass Castle to be an amazing memoir (not a lot like Keyes, though). I plan to get around to Keyes' series of books in the not-too-distant future. Have a great June.

My nightstand is kind of overflowing right now.. I have Karen Marie Moning's Dark Fever,Blood Fever, and Fae Fever (she's my favorite author), The Book Thief, The Secret Life of Bees, and a handful of copywriting/editing/fiction writing books.

Sounds like you have a lot of great stuff picked out for this month. Can't wait to see the reviews! :)

What an interesting list. I've read Glass Castle and it was good. The others are new and intriguing.

I wanted to read Everyone is Beautiful for the 5 minutes for Books bookclub but just did not get to it...now I do not have time. Possibly, I will read it at a later date.

I loved New Moon.. I am reading the rest of the series this month :-)
