Emily of New Moon
Emily of New Moon | Lucy Maud Montgomery
Emily Starr never knew what it was to be lonely - until her beloved father died. Now Emily's an orphan, and her mother's snobbish relatives are taking her to live with them at New Moon Farm. She's sure she won't be happy Emily deals with stiff, stern Aunt Elizabeth and her malicious classmates by holding her head high and using her quick wit. Things begin to change when she makes friends: with Teddy, who does marvelous drawings; with Perry,

One night when the Rev Mr Dare was here to tea I used the word bull in my conversashun. I said Ilse and I were afraid to go through Mr James Lee‘s pasture because he had a cross bull there. After Mr Dare had gone, Aunt Elizabeth gave me an awful skolding and told me I was never to use that word again. But he had been talking of tigers at tea and I can‘t understand why it is more disgraceful to to talk about bulls than tigers.

Butterfinger I adore Emily's thinking. 4h

#childrensclassicread2020

Spent a stolen hour after work, visiting Emily‘s world. My husband coaxed me to join him in our bed where he was reading. It‘s exam week so I am not tutoring. Getting home before 5 is a treat!!! Now I am winding down after dinner with an apple,writing some #Litsylove cards, then more Emily.

TheBookHippie I love it so much!!! Enjoy! 2d

“Today road is by the brook and we call it that because it is lovely now. ..........The tomorrow road is just a tiny path in the maple clearing and we call it that because it is going to be lovely someday, when the maples grow bigger “

What a fantastic idea😀 Half way through this book.

I feel like I'm home while reading. I had forgotten about Emily's imagination - Wind Woman. I'm reading with my 8 year old so it will be a slow read, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. My favorite LM Montgomery was Jane of Lantern Hill. Thanks @TheBookHippie @GingerAntics

#PorchReading #65degreesinJanuary
My husband & I enjoyed coffee on the porch this morning, then I read out there later in the day. Cannot recall ever reading out on the porch in winter! 65 degrees. The sky vacillated between blue skies and clouds all day.
Yes there is global warming.

#BookReport #January11
#ATreeGrowsinBrooklynBuddyRead- never got to it this week. Thinking I will not finish this in January.
#audio- DoctorDeath. Enjoyed the characters, the information about forensic science emerging as a field, bizarre but compelling mystery.
#audio- Death of Riley- ch16 of 28. Another compelling female protagonist.
#childrensclassicread- started Emily this morning.
#CopperCountyRead - went beyond goal. On p, 172.

Read for #childrensclassicread2020 E for Emily for #LitsyAtoZ
Enjoyed this story about Emily Starr who has to live with her mother‘s relatives at Noon Moon farm after she becomes an orphan. Emily grows as a person in 2 years, while wrestling with her creativity, her independent streak, her friendships with humans and animals, and her memories. The descriptions of nature are gorgeous and Emily‘s emotional conditions are realistic.

Loved this wonderful book, which according to my e-book blurb about author is somewhat autobiographical. Wish I had discovered it as a child, but glad to read along with #childrensclassicread2020. @TheBookHippie

rubyslippersreads I haven‘t watched the TV series, but I picture Emily as being much more ethereal than this. 😊 2w
