What’s on Your Nightstand, is a monthly meme hosted by 5 Minutes for Books on the last Tuesday of every month that summarizes what you’ve read for the month, what you’re currently reading, and what you plan to read next. For my posts, I also include articles, music, art, TV shows, and whatever else I did in the month.
My reading trend so far is pretty erratic. I began the year in a slump, went on a reading high in February, and was burnt out by March (kinda). I completed one book, but I currently have many on the go. I couldn’t decide on what to read next, so I kept starting books. Hopefully I’ll complete one of them in April.
The Curse of Chalion by Lois McMaster Bujold is a new favorite. I’ve mentioned it a lot on here since reading it. It’s a high fantasy novel about a man who gets caught up in the plans of the gods and tangled in the politics of his land. It’s a wonderful read that I increasingly liked the more I learned about its magic system, which is influenced by the gods: The gods must use human conduits to effect change in that world. I’m eager to read more of Bujold’s books and the other novels in this series. If you haven’t yet read The Curse of Chalion, I highly recommend you do so.
