what is on your bedside table to read?

So what books are on your bedside table or queued up on your tablet? I love to read so I am never happier when piles of novels await me.

My summer reading so far includes:

The Beneficiary by Janny Scott – as a native Philadelphian you have to be curious.

A Discovery of Witches and the companion novels by Deborah Harkness. I blame these books on the BBC series based upon these books. Great series and the books so far? Awesome!

Wild Fire and the other Shetland series novels by Ann Cleaves. I have been obsessed with the ITV series Shetland for a few years (BritBox on Amazon), so it’s time to dig into the novels.

In Search of Lost Roses by Thomas Christopher. Not a novel but a repeat read about 20 years later. It’s about people who hunt old, antique and forgotten roses. Rose rustlers.

Someone Knows by Lisa Scottoline. Yes a long time Lisa fan girl from way back when she was starting out as a new novelist and I met her a few times at signings at Barnes and Noble in Bryn Mawr (sadly the location is now a drug store.) Back then my mother booked the events and Lisa Scottoline was one of her picks.

Where the Crawdad’s Sing by Delia Owens. I have no idea what I will think but my mother and stepfather both think this is an amazing book!

Let me know what you are reading! I will close that I am also reading gardening books by people like Helen Dillon and Monty Don.
