Books on my Bedside Table

I’ve been reading all sorts of things recently – but as always – mainly fiction.  Some fiction titles as you know can be a little more stressful than others…

I’m afraid that the book I’m going to be starting tonight will be like that:

We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver
It a ” thriller and close study of maternal ambivalence, and the role it might have played in the title character’s decision to murder nine people at his high school”… Let’s hope I make it through this one!

But also on my table is a few fun things:

I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella
I’ve heard this is her best book yet – so I’m really looking forward to it.

 The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
A family saga through the eyes of a dog – how great is that?!

I’ve also been listening to a series in audiobook format while I’m at work – it’s the way I get a lot of my Young Adult fiction in. I’m on book 2 in the I am Number Four series by Pittacus Lore. Book 2 is The Power of Six. I must admit – book 1 was really good – book 2… not as much – but I’m waiting to finish it before I draw my final conclusions.

So… what’s on your bookshelf?
