What's on Your Nightstand #13

First: Congratulations to the winner of the POSSESS giveaway,CHELLEYREADS! And stay tuned--there will be more Friday giveaways in the future. Now, let's see what our members are reading this week:

Zoraida Cordova: I just got TEXAS GOTHIC by Rosemary Clement Moore. I loved her MAGGIE QUINN: GOOD VS. EVIL series so much! I read THE SPLENDOR FALLS a few weeks ago, and now I must devour this one!

Elisa Ludwig: I'm reading THE DARK DAYS OF HAMBURGER HALPIN by Josh Berk, about a deaf overweight kid who's sucked into a murder mystery at his new school. So far I'm drawn right in by Hamburger's sardonic wit and the mystery is just getting started so I expect to be entertained this weekend.

Nicole Maggi: I just started BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS by Anna Godbersen. It's about, well, bright young things in 1929 NYC. I devoured her LUXE series so I'm looking forward to reading this with the same relish!

Danny Marks: I did, in fact, pick up Kathryn Stockett's THE HELP again and after the first few chapters I was eating it up. The writing is like liquid silver and the character's spring right off the page. I also, as part of my early Halloween reading, started Andrew Smith's THE MARBURY LENS. It's quite possibly the darkest piece of YA fiction I've had the salivating, heart palpitating pleasure to crack open. Genius stuff!

Gina Rosati: I know I'm supposed to finish proofing my first pass pages by this weekend, but I kept sneaking away to read POSSESS by our very own Gretchen McNeil - it's amazing and brilliant and terrifying! My daughter's dolls must go!!!

Jessica Spotswood: I'm reading Claudia Gray's FATEFUL. It's got a great hook: werewolves on the Titanic! The feisty, sympathetic protagonist, Tess, is a servant to a wealthy family with lots of secrets. I'm a sucker for historical paranormal and this has a great voice.

What about you guys? What are you reading this week? Tell us about it in the comments!


  1. I can't wait to read TEXAS GOTHIC, Zoraida! I just ordered that!

  2. I had no idea that's what FATEFUL was about! How cool.
