What's on Your Nightstand- January

What’s on Your Nightstand is a monthly event hosted by 5 Minutes for Books.
 
On my nightstand this month:


Rex by Cathleen Lewis
I received my first book to review from Thomas Nelson on the eve of my birthday, so I consider this a birthday gift. Thank you Thomas Nelson for the freebie! I intend to read this and write the review soon.
Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
My Themed Reading Challenge starts in February *shiver* and as I've committed to reading four of Austen’s work this year, I’ll start with Northanger Abbey. By the way, I love the collection of Austen’s books from Headline Review, its got such a chick lit look to it don’t you think?

I'm glad you joined in! Love "ulat buku" bookworm translation.

I read Northanger Abbey a couple of years ago because it was the shortest Austen my library had, and I enjoyed it! I agree -- that cover is very cute.

Ms Ulat Buku said...

That's exactly why I'm starting with Northanger Abbey too because it's the shortest! LOL

I know we shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but it's amazing how much more attractive a book can be just by having a more attractive cover.

I bought a copy of Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov because it had a very modern look to the cover too! Love the one you've got on Northanger Abbey!

Gosh Lolita? I've been meaning to read that but it just looks heavy!
