#AnneReadAlong2017 : Anne of Green Gables Review
#AnneReadAlong2017 , Book Review / May 23, 2017

Title: Anne of Green Gables Series: Anne of Green Gables, #1 Author: L M Montgomery Genre: Classic Publisher: Bantam Books (Classics) Release Date: May 1st, 1982 Format: eBook Pages: 314 First Published: 1908 “She’ll have to go back.” Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert had decided to adopt an orphan. They wanted a nice sturdy boy to help Matthew with the farm chores. The orphanage sent a girl instead – a mischievous, talkative redhead who the Cuthberts thought would be no use at all. But as soon as Anne arrived at the snug, white farmhouse called Green Gables, she knew she wanted to stay forever. And the longer Anne stayed, the harder it was for anyone to imagine Green Gables without her. (via Goodreads) Amazon   I cannot believe I didn’t read this book as a child. This classic novel is over 100 years old and yet captured my heart. There is such a simple serenity hiding within the pages of this novel. Stories of love, adventure, stubbornness, forgiveness, rivalries, family, troublemaking, and dreams are woven together to tell the tale of the heartwarming orphan, Anne Shirley. Anne with an E, that is. It’s been my experience that you can nearly always…

Anne of Green Gables Read Along
#AnneReadAlong2017 / May 16, 2017

When reading Amanda @ Cover2CoverMom ‘s blog, I discovered that there is an Anne of Green Gables Read Along happening! My Kids Lit book club recently read Anne, but I will admit… I never finished the book. I got to 80% and then it was book club time. This is a great excuse to re-read Anne and to keep going in the series. This 1908 novel which started it all tells the tale of an 11-year-old orphan girl who is mistakenly sent to live with a middle-aged brother and sister. Intending to adopt an orphan boy to help out on the farm, suddenly they have Anne. And, as one could imagine, young Anne quickly enters the hearts of not only Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert but the whole fictional town of Avonlea, Prince Edward Island, Canada. The series continues in 5 further books, following Anne to age 40. After that point, 2 additional books are written following Anne’s children and family friends. Anne is still a primary character and continues towards her “old age” of 53. I reached out to Jane @ Greenish Bookshelf to share my enthusiasm for her read along (#AnneReadAlong2017). As it turns out, she was looking for a…
