What's On Your Nightstand?
I'm taking a break from my December posts to show you what's currently on my nightstand.

Right now, I am reading Tricia Goyer and Mike Yorkey's new book, Chasing Mona Lisa. It's fast-paced Christian fiction set at the end of the German occupation of Paris during World War II. With all the Christmas festivities, I'm having to read this in bits and pieces, but I am enjoying it and look forward to finishing it in the next few days.

Up next is All the Flowers in Shanghai, which is set in China in the 1930's. I have read a few books about China in the last year, and the historical context of this novel fascinates me.

Beyond Molasses Creek is the third book in my pile. It is the contemporary story of a flight attendant who returns home to bury her father and face her past. I'm looking forward to it as well.

I will review all of these books at 5 Minutes for Books in the near future. Be sure to click over there today to see what others are reading!

Those all look interesting, but I think Chasing Mona Lisa sounds most interesting to me right now. It seems a bit genre bending maybe? Christian, Historical, Action, Oh my! :-)

I haven't started Chasing Mona Lisa yet but am looking forward to it. Beyond Molasses Creek sounds good too!

Lauren: I'm exciting that you've started "Chasing Mona Lisa," which I wrote with Tricia Goyer. We think we have a very exciting story to tell about the most famous painting in the world set in a time when nothing was certain . . . I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts! . . . Mike Yorkey
