Anne of Green Gables
Anne of Green Gables | Lucy Maud Montgomery
48 posts | 123 read | 21 to read
Matthew Cuthbert, an elderly bachelor, and his spinster sister, Marilla, want to adopt a sturdy little boy to help with chores on their Prince Edward Island farm. The orphanage mistakenly sends a girl. Anne Shirley is a romantic, mischievous redhead desperate for a home and a family. She is also afflicted with an exhausting habit: she cannot stop talking. Her vivid imagination causes her to encounter one mishap after another. Loyal and kindhearted, however, Anne is soon accepted as a "kindred spirit" to Matthew and Marilla and grows up a spirited and intelligent young woman.

Opening day for the mammoth Church Garage Sale, and I thought I had seen every book on the tables. Wrong. One more to go home with me. I have a paperback copy, but could not resist a “good as new” hardback edition! #toomanybooks 😬

Reading a classic while I wait for my car. I feel like I missed some classic tween lit when I jumped from Scholastic bookfair tween books to books like Sweet Valley High to sweet romances.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I enjoyed this book far better than I thought I would when I first started! I had trouble keeping up with what was happening in the beginning but when I started the Netflix series, it straightened things out! I admit I found myself skipping pages where Anne babbles on but aside from that, I enjoyed it! #GARBingo

Anne Shirley is a red-haired, high spirited girl who shows up instead of the boy that Matthew and Merrill‘s Cuthbert planned to adopt to help with chores on their farm. I loved Anne‘s imagination, spirit and adventures. She would make a great friend and would be a fun playmate. Great look at life on Prince Edward Island. Classic read for young and old.

GripLitGrl @Tianarose Mine too! I've been skeptical to watch the new series since the books & original series are so amazing. As big a fan as you are as well I may give it a go to see 🤔 1y

I wanted to love this book... Really I did. The problem was I hated Anne in the beginning. I didn't fully enjoy her until almost 160 pages in. I normally give up after 100 pages, but because this is a classic I had to troop through. I'm glad I did because towards the end the book finally was enjoyable. I think the first half deserves ⭐️⭐️ and the last half deserves ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. On average though, to me, Anne of Green Gables was a ⭐️⭐️⭐️ novel...

Fun Friday Photo: Happy Canada Day!

When I was younger, I was introduced to a little girl named Anne. The book was HUGE to me (filled with books 1-3) and I felt like a rockstar when I finished. And I loved the stories. That's why Lucy Maud Montgomery is my Favorite Canadian Writer.

mllemay Anne is such a great character! I love her so much 😍 3y
lilycobalt I'm not sure why I never finished this book. I think all the rejection Anne faced made me uncomfortable. But somehow I still wanted to live in Avonlea. 3y
CaitlinSiem @lilycobalt I admit, I never read it again from when I did that first time. It always just stuck with me. Maybe part of that is because of everything Anne had to go through. 3y

Today I thought I'd do a shout out to one of my favorite literary father figures - Matthew Cuthbert from "Anne of Green Gables" by L. M. Montgomery.
.
.
In the book Matthew is a shy, kind character and my heart melted at the sweet relationship Anne and Matthew shared throughout the book.
