I have a terrible feeling none of you listened to me and read this book (who hadn’t read it already). So I’m gonna say again, READ IT! I just re-read it for this post, and it is good as I remember, and as unique. It’s a fascinating true-feeling document of a very specific time and place and people.Continue reading
The last two Anne books! Which are also the two I was most looking forward to discussing. Please please read just these two, even if you don’t read any of the others. This one is the childhood story of a gang of children, and the next one tells what happens to those children when they grow up. They are very different from anything else Montgomery wrote, and pretty different from anything I have ever read by anyone else either.Continue reading
Well, I had to stay up almost to midnight but I finished it! The problem is, I enjoy these books so much that I keep putting them off as a special treat for the weekend. And then I have so much to do on weekends that I finish them late. Anyway, I’m starting Rainbow Valley TOMORROW! It makes me happy, why not read it right away?Continue reading
Woot, another Anne book! Which has absolutely no harem-scarem Anne hijinks at all. In fact, she barely leaves her house, and doesn’t interact with the wider community at all. What’s that about?Continue reading
I just had the loveliest morning finishing this book. I put it off partly because I was super busy this week (this was Week of Getting Yards Ready for Spring), but also because I remembered it being kind of dull. Not at all! So many fun little stories in there once the book really gets going.Continue reading
As we crawl through the Anne series, I increasingly find myself wanting to reference back to things in Montgomery’s real life. Which seems unfair since I haven’t laid out basic information yet for everyone to share. So here it is! The post where I do that!Continue reading
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay, another Anne book to discuss! And we have so many left to go! This is just delightful for me, I hope we don’t run out of things to discuss.Continue reading
Don’t worry, the discussion questions are going to be very general, so even if the last time you read the book straight through was years ago, you can still contribute. Personally, I was just going to sort of skim, and then I ended up sitting down and reading and crying for 2 hours straight yesterday and forgot to eat lunch. Basically the same as the first time I read itContinue reading
I have a Grand Plan!!! I am excited! And I hope at least some of you will join me on my journey. Or part of my journey. Anyway, before I go to Prince Edward Island with my Mom in July, I have to re-read all the Anne books. And I thought “why not use the blog to inspire me?”Continue reading
I am so thrilled to share this book with you!!! It’s this little hidden gem, and more people need to know about it.Continue reading
I’m excited! We’re gonna read one of my favorite novels! And feel all smart and worldly and also romantical and silly.Continue reading
Oh boy! I am so excited to talk about these with someone. They are a little obscure, but I love them, and can’t wait for others to love them as well.Continue reading
You thought I would build on the extremely short light easy read from last week to something harder? HA! NO! I am of course going down to something even easier. Next week, perhaps fanfic? We don’t want to overtax our brains.Continue reading
Okay, prepare yourself for a very very deep cut. This is my absolute favorite LM Montgomery short story. So, not an “Anne” book, and not one of her other lessor series either. And not even from the first short story collection Chronicles of Avonlea, but aaaaallllll the way in Further Chronicles of Avonlea. But it’s SO GOOD!!!! How can I resist I remake? And it is just crying out for Shahrukh.
I’m doing it! A totally ridiculous extremely specific post for those people who live within the Venn diagram overlap of “Familiar with Malayalam Films” and also “Familiar with the Anne of Green Gables Series”. So, Angie. You better appreciate this Angie!
