What's On Your Nightstand (June)

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.
The Silmarillion. J.R.R. Tolkien. 1977. 386 pages. [Source: Bought]
I started this one in January, and restarted this one over the weekend. I've been watching the extended edition of Lord of the Rings, and, wanted to read some Tolkien as I watched. I'm now a little over halfway through this one. And I am loving it!!! I hope to finish this one and begin Fellowship of the Ring soon after.

My Brother's Secret. Dan Smith. 2015. Scholastic. 304 pages. [Source: Review copy]

World War II fiction set in Germany from the perspective of a young German boy who has been raised to embrace Nazism, but, who is beginning to wake up to the horrors of war.

The Truth According to Us. Annie Barrows. 2015. 512 pages. [Source: Library]

Historical fiction set in a small town in America during the Depression...

Packer on the Christian Life. Sam Storms. 2015. Crossway. 224 pages. [Source: Review copy]

So excited to finish this one! I love J.I. Packer though most of what I've read, I read before I started blogging. I need to reread Knowing God for sure so I can blog about it!

To Capture Her Heart. Rebecca DeMarino. 2015. Revell. 352 pages. [Source: Review copy]

Blog tour for this one in July...

I just got a copy of My Brother's Secret as well. I'm curious to read it.

Lisa notes... said...

The Truth According to Us sounds interesting (albeit long, ha). I'll wait and hear what you think about it before I add it to my list. :) I'm due for a reread of Knowing God myself.

Somehow I have never read Knowing God, but I need to,

So far I haven't ventured into The Silmarillion yet. My sons tell me some of the material in the recent Hobbit movies came from it. I'll have to try to remember it for next year's Classics challenge.

My Brother's Secret sounds really interesting.
