What Are You Reading?

What Are You Reading 1I’ve come down from the mad flurry of new books by favorite authors, and am mostly back to working through my usual goals and lists and challenges…

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? 🙂

    A re-read of The Enchanted Chronicles sounds like so much fun! I’ve just finished The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater (l love The Raven Boys series) and am now reading Doll Bones by Holly Black.

    Sounds like an interesting take on the usual “masked man” story with a guy as the hero. And weaving a Cinderella tale into it gives it more depth.
