What's On Your Nightstand? (April)

The folks at 5 Minutes For Books host What’s On Your Nightstand? the fourth Tuesday of each month in which we can share about the books we have been reading and/or plan to read.
Infernal Device and Others: A Professor Moriarty Omnibus. Michael Kurland. 2001. St. Martin's Press.  528 pages. [Source: Library]

I've read The Infernal Device and The Paradol Parodox (which was just a very short story). There is one more book in the collection, Death by Gaslight. Overall, I'm enjoying this series!

The Turnip Princess and Other Newly Discovered Fairy Tales. Franz Xaver Von Schonwerth. Translated by Maria Tatar. 2015. Penguin. 288 pages. [Source: Review copy]

I am loving this one so far. The book is divided into sections: "Tales of Magic and Romance," "Enchanted Animals," "Otherworldly Creatures," "Legends," "Tall Tales and Anecdotes," and "Tales About Nature." Each story in the collection is short--very concise! It's just fun to sit down and read this one!

Forgotten Sisters. (Princess Academy #3) Shannon Hale. 2015. Bloomsbury. 336 pages. [Source: Review copy]

I recently reread the first two books in this fantasy series in anticipation of finally getting to this one. I've read the first few chapters so far and am enjoying it.

I love how excited we book-lovers get over our books. :) And even more so when we find a series we enjoy. Thanks for sharing your finds!

My girls have been reading the Princess Academy books. The fairy tale book sounds good. Can't go wrong with a good fairy tale, you know.
