What’s On Your Nightstand: M.D. Waters

What's On Your Nightstand Banner

I already have M.D. Waters‘ books on my to be read pile (on my Kindle) so why not invite her to share what she’s reading? Her first book Archetype is a psychological thriller about Emma, whose memory has been wiped but she dreams of a war and a camp where girls are trained to be wives? Doesn’t that sound like a good read?

With further ado, here’s M.D. Waters:

I have pretty diverse tastes, so what’s on my nightstand is actually a growing TBR pile that depends solely on my mood. I read a lot of YA because I haven’t quite gotten tired of the angst. But occasionally I just want a steamy romance, or a story that makes me think or cry or laugh. I’m a sucker for authors who turn words into art; Margaret Atwood comes to mind. Or poets like Tyler Knott Gregson and Christopher Poindexter. And because my mood is always different, and never aligns with my TBR pile, what’s on my “nightstand” grows by the day.

The book I’m currently working on is The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead. I love her, and can’t wait to read the final book in this series. Mead has always been, and probably always be, one of my automatic buy authors.

I also just finished the audiobook to Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. Easily in my top five books, as well as audio. Amazing narrators for this heart-wrenching story. If you need a good cry, this will do it. I both loved and hated that Moyes didn’t hold back. It takes a special kind of writer to torture characters the way she did in this one. She’s my hero.

Thanks for sharing your list!
