Friday Five: What’s on My Nightstand

Here’s (in random order) what’s in the to-read pile next to my bed, waiting for me to raise my eyes up from the 1632 series:

1. Andrew Auseon’s Freak Magnet.

2. Mathew Quick’s Sorta Like a Rock Star.

3. Maureen Johnson’s 13 Little Blue Envelopes.

4. Joshilyn Jackson’s Backseat Saints.

5. Adam Rex’s Fat Vampire.

What’s next on your reading stack?

    • That wasn’t much of a blurb. ; )

      We’re new to Florida and watched a DVD called “A Sense Of Place” about Patrick Smith and his Florida based novels last week.

      I immediately put him on my reading list:

      Forever Island ~ set in Big Cyprus Swamp
      Allapattah ~ set in the Everglades
      A Land Remembered ~ pioneer days in Florida

      According to the flap, Forever Island has “become the classic novel of the Everglades” published in 36 countries.

      I haven’t started reading it yet, that’s why my blurb was just a blub. ; )

  1. Hooked, per your suggestion 🙂

    I’m still reading through <The Power of Point of View, and I want to work through those exercises.

    As far as fiction, I’m waiting for my turn to read The Cookbook Collector and The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake. There’s a long waiting list at the library, but that gives me time to dig deep into POV and beginnings.

  2. I’m reading “Alligator Bayou” by Donna Jo Napoli (1899 in Louisiana- story of Italians and African Americans); and “Black Pearls” by Lousie Hawes (redone fair tales– I think); and “Take Me” by Lisa Williams Kline (short stories for adults) are on deck. Still working through the first Crosswicks Journal (Madeline L’Engle) which I love.
