Hello there! Welcome to another weekend of "What I'm Reading." Let's get started shall we?
As many of you have probably figured out I tend to read tons of books at once, usually a non-fiction and a fiction title, and then maybe a classic. And as you might have guess I drag my feet with the non-fiction (there are some great exceptions though), and classics, and then go on to zoom through the fiction. Well this year I will be making an effort to read more classics, so I you don't mind me mentioning a couple here :)
Yes, the classics I speak of are for school :) I'm not going to post the book description of Ethan Frome because I just think it's weird, and I have no clue if I'm going to even be Ok with the actual book. D:
I'm also right in the middle of The Keeper by Suzanne Woods Fisher. And let me say that I love how different and charming all of the characters are! All of them are amazing, and Mary Kate is really something! I'll be posting my review next week so be sure to be on the look-out for it :)
Julia Lapp has planned on marrying Paul Fisher since she was a girl. Now twenty-one, she looks forward to their wedding with giddy anticipation. When Paul tells her he wants to postpone the wedding—again—she knows who is to blame. Perpetual bachelor and spreader of cold feet, Roman Troyer, the Bee Man.
Roamin' Roman travels through the Amish communities of Ohio and Pennsylvania with his hives full of bees, renting them out to farmers in need of pollinators. He relishes his nomadic life, which keeps him from thinking about all he has lost. He especially enjoys bringing his bees to Stoney Ridge each year. But with Julia on a mission to punish him for inspiring Paul's cold feet, the Lapp farm is looking decidedly less pleasant.
Can Julia secure the future she's always dreamed of? Or does God have something else in mind?
Full of the plot twists and surprises her fans love, The Keeper is the first in a new series by bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher. Through touching family relationships and trials of the heart, Fisher's vivid characters grapple with yielding to God's will when it doesn't match their own.
So that's what I'm reading. What are you reading? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a wonderful weekend :)
