What's on Your Nightstand? (May)


This is a monthly event held on the forth Tuesday of the Month by 5 Minutes for Books.
You can participate in What's on Your Nightstand? in several ways. Choose what's appealing to you:
  1. Take a picture or simply give a list of the stack of books that you are in the process of reading or planning to read (it might be on your nightstand, on a bookshelf, or like me, under your bed).
  2. Give short reviews of the book or books that you read that month.
  3. Tell about what you are reading and why. I love to read the backstory on books. Did someone give it to you? Are you trying out a new genre at the recommendation of a friend (or website)? Did you stumble across a new author in a used bookstore?
  4. Fill us in on your reading habits. When are you reading these books? Is one reserved for bedtime reading? Does one stay in your car to be read while you are waiting? Do you read just one book at a time?
This is the first time I participate in the event so here goes..

The books I read for the month of May are:

Out Of The Box (The Edge Series #1) by Kallysten
This I bought from Fictionwise at the spur of the moment and it's a short story so it didn't take much time to read. I then bought the whole series which are 10 ebooks until now, but I didn't get a chance to read any of them yet.. they are still waiting on my IPhone :)

The Reader by Bernhard Schlink
I've read so many reviews about this book and since it was done into a movie I thought I would try it out.

Desire Unchained by Larissa Ione
This was the second book in the Demonica series and since I LOVED the first book I had to check the second one.. I was NOT disappointed.. I LOVED it as much as the first one!

Her Heart His Soul by Kari Thomas
This ebook was sent to me by Debra at Reviewyourbook.com for review.

Heart Storm by Liane Gentry Skye
This story was part of an anthology sent to me also by Debra at Reviewyourbook.com for review.

From Dead To Worse by Charlaine Harris
The eighth book in my favorite series "Sookie Stackhouse" and one of my favorite in the series.

Books I'm reading right now:

The Prey by Allison Brennan
