On Our Nightstands is a weekly roundup of the books we’re actually reading this week. Peruse our list for some what-to-read inspiration and stay tuned for more detailed reviews!
This week I’m reading The Last Days of Night by Graham Moore. I was skeptical at first, wondering how a book about Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse’s battle over the invention of the light bulb could possibly be as page turning as all the reviews claimed. Turns out, it is totally living up to the hype so far and I can’t put it down!
I’m normally strictly a one-book-at-a-time gal (unless I’m listening to a book and physically reading another), but this week I’ve broken my usual rule for what I call “research.” (Miranda Hart, anyone?) For my job, I’ve been working on compiling a list of books to recommend for high school students, especially those who don’t like to read, so I raided the YA section at the library. This week I finished We Were Liars by E. Lockhart (very twisty and emotional – one of those books that left me with that weird feeling where it’s hard to transition back to the real world after the book is over) and just started Passenger by Alexandra Bracken ~Sarah
