What I'm Reading ~ Weekend

Ethan Frome
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:

The Keeper: A Novel (Stoney Ridge Seasons)
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 :)

Book Description:
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 :)


  1. That's admirable to want to read more classics! :) I'm excited about some of the ones I'll hopefully read this semester - including Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen for my 17th-19th Century Brit Lit class. Generally I don't read classics for fun (I lean more towards Christian fiction), but in the past year I've found some I've really enjoyed for class and otherwise, including Dracula, a couple of Sherlock Holmes stories, Jane Eyre, and a couple of Agatha Christie books. I'm hoping I'm maturing a little to the point where I can appreciate older literature. ;)

    I'm currently reading The Keeper, as well! I like Fisher's work. :) I'm also hoping to read more of The Hunger Games this weekend!

    Hope you're enjoying the new year, and happy reading!


  2. Thanks, I think it's really hard to find the really good ones sometimes, because often I have found that the ones we call classics today were very controversial for their time--and others are just timeless and would fit in any century :) It's great that you have classes about the classics :) I find that when it's required reading, I tend to pay more attention and am better able to get something from them! It's so great to be able to do taht now, I agree!
    Oh, you are going to really enjoy the great characters in The Keeper, I like how each character is so different and has their own charm that endears them to you :)
    Thanks for the well wishes :)


I love to hear from you!
