BTT: Bedside Books

by Ann-Katrina

TIR Books

booking through thursday It’s Thursday and you know what that means…another edition of Booking Through Thursday is here.

This week’s question is: What books do you have next to your bed right now? How about other places in the house? What are you reading?

As the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words…

Bedside Books

(Apologies for the super-craptasical camera phone picture quality.)

Rundown of the books are: Reading Like A Writer by Francine Prose; The Eyes of the Amaryllis by Natalie Babbitt; Goody Hall by Natalie Babbitt; The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan; Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen; White Cat by Holly Black; Ash by Malinda Lo; Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater; The Invisible Gorilla by Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simons; A Wish After Midnight by Zetta Elliot; The Metamorphoses by Ovid (which is concealed); Bite Me by Christopher Moore; The Rural Life by Verlyn Klinkenborg; The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot; The Autobiography of an Execution by David R. Dow; and The Hollow by Jessica Verday.

And probably not surprisingly, I also have a stack of books on the floor near my bed, but I’ll spare you. :) As for having books in other places in the house, um…of course. An easier question would be, where don’t I have books?

ShadeStolenRumor Has It

Right now my reading is rotating between three books. Having finished The Unwritten Rule on Sunday and slated to complete Dork Diaries (Book 2) today, I will be working Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready into the mix with Stolen by Lucy Christopher and Rumor Has It by Jill Mansell. (I’m a mood-based reader, hence the seemingly random book pool.)

    The Eyes of the Amaryllis is one of my most favorite books in the world! I always get all thrilled when its title appears. Hope you enjoy it!

    Oh, man. I think that seeing more and more people posting about this is actually making me feel even more guilty about my crazy-ass pile!

    Here‘s my post, if you want to take a look!

    I finished The Eyes of the Amaryllis and it was such a sweet story with a touch of creepy. Still, though, I think Tuck Everlasting remains my favorite Natalie Babbitt book…then again, I still have to read Good Hall. :)

    Why would you feel worse? If anything, you should feel proud–you’re making TBR mountains and wishlists grow by the truckload. :)

    (And just so you know, My own piles could rival yours, but I decided it was best to spare everyone the photos. They would make most sane people shudder and curl into a fetal ball. Be glad your own piles are as neat as they are. ^_^)

    The David Dow book bugs me because he doesn’t use quotation marks around dialogue, but you get used to it. I love Reading Like a Writer, though. It flows so well the pages float by.
