What's on Your Nightstand- April

What’s on Your Nightstand is a monthly event hosted by 5 Minutes for Books.
 
In my last post for What’s on Your Nightstand I listed out the following books to read:
  1. The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
  2. The Last Secret of the Temple by Paul Sussman
  3. Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortensen & David Oliver Relin
  4. The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly 

What I managed to read in April were the following books instead:
  1. Veronika Decides to Die
  2. Philosophy: A Graphic Guide to the History of Thinking
  3. The Book of Lost Things
  4. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
  5. Kira- Kira (Review not up yet)
  6. The Three Incestuous Sisters (Review not up yet)
  7. The Traveler (Review not up yet)

This month I reckon I’ll need to change this post from What’s on Your Nightstand to What’s on Your Bookshelf. I can’t believe the amount of unread books I have currently on my bookshelf. I keep buying them and just don’t have the time to read them all. It doesn’t help that I jump at any opportunity to visit book sales and end up buying a truckload of books. Half of my second bookshelf in my study room is filled with books that I have yet to read.
Anyway I guess I can never complain that I have nothing to read. This month I’m hoping to read the following books:
  1. Life of Pi by Yann Martel
  2. Emma by Jane Austen
  3. Everything is Illuminated by Joshua Safran Foer
  4. Isolation by Travis Thrasher
Happy reading everybody!

Same here with me. I have tons of unread books sitting and waiting on the shelves. I'd be lying if I said I have nothing to read because I have more than enough to read!

I love the story of Emma though I haven't read the book yet. My favourite Emma movie is the one with Gwyneth Paltrow and Jeremy Northam in it.

Yep, I share the same thoughts! There're just too many books and too little time for us, eh? ;P

I loved the Book of Lost Things. You have many books on your list that I have been looking at and hem-hawing over.
You mentioned the Book of Air & Shadows. The plot and writing are very good. It has a little more sex than I like, but I'm just skipping over those scenes.
Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
