What's On Your Nightstand, February 26, 2013

 
I'm participating in What's on Your Nightstand over at 5 Minutes for Books. It's basically a monthly carnival where you can write and link up a post listing the books you plan on reading for the upcoming month. It's a nice way to set some reading goals of my own as well as check out the other posts - where I'm sure to find more books to add to my never-ending to-be-read pile.
 
I had a good month in January, completing six books. But, I've slipped in February and hardly had any time for reading. I'm hoping to get back on track and at least complete a few books in the upcoming weeks.
 
Here's what's on my list to read next:
 
1. Afterlife by Hank Hanegraaff - A theological book dealing with what happens to a person after death
 
 
2. The People of Forever Are Not Afraid: A Novel by Shani Boianjiu - A coming-of-age story about what it's like for girls growing up in Israel and being drafted into the fierce Israeli Army.
 
 
 
3.  Kisses For Katie by Katie J. Davis, Beth Clark - True story of a young Tennessee woman who decides to skip college and leave her friends and family behind to move to Uganda.. There, she hopes to minister to people and really make a difference.
 

 
 
 
4.  Animal Farm by George Orwell - This classic has been on my list for a long time. I just picked up a copy at Half Price Books and it should be a quick read.
 


 
 
So, that's my short reading list. What about you...what are you reading? Be sure and check out the other posts over at 5 Minutes for Books if you need some inspirations.

So are these the books you're hoping to read or have read? An interesting bunch. I've heard of Kisses for Katie but I can't remember WHAT I heard, if that makes sense. Let me know if it's good. Also the People of Forever looks very interesting.

I only have one right now I need to read for a review. A vampire novel...:) I also am in the middle of another one that I think is called ShadowHunter.

Hey 4 books is nothing to sneeze at! I've never read Animal Farm, one of many classics that have somehow passed me by.

I really wish I could dedicate more time to reading. I've been reading Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson for months now since I can only get in 5 minutes of reading a day.

I saw Kisses for Katie at a bookstore not too long ago and thought it looked good. You'll have to tell us what you think about it.
