Right now I’m in the middle of Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. I’ve been making my way slowly through Austen for the last few years, and after this the only novel left will be Emma. So far I’m enjoying Mansfield Park, although I’m finding the collection of characters unusually difficult to keep straight, even for Austen. It doesn’t help having two Mr. Bertrams and two Miss Bertrams!
After Austen, I have a very random read I chose thoroughly on a whim. I recently read the second volume of L. M. Montgomery’s Complete Journals, and sometimes she discusses her reading. She mentioned Elizabeth and Her German Garden by Elizabeth von Armin often enough and warmly enough that I got curious…and since Montgomery and I both count J. M. Barrie as a favorite author, I’m hopeful!
After that, I’ve been meaning to reread the Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia C. Wrede for ages and ages, so I plan to jump into one or two of those for something lighter.
What are you reading this week? 🙂
