When Dreams Come True All her life, Valancy Stirling lived on a quiet little street in an ugly little house and never dared to contradict her domineering mother and her unforgiving aunt. Then she gets a letterand decides that very day things need to change. For the first time in her life, she does exactly what she wants to and says exactly what she feels. At first her family thinks she's gone around the bend. But soon Valancy discovers more surprises and adventure than she ever thought possible. She also finds her one true love and the real-life version of the Blue Castle that she was sure only existed in her dreams... What Readers are Saying: "This just became one of my all-time favorites! In fact, this may be my favorite L.M. Montgomery book, and I'm a huge 'Anne' fan!...I loved the drama and the romance, and the beautiful descriptions of the Canadian wilds. What a great book! It's a treat to read, just a joy with every page!" "The sweetest...

I remain a #trueblue fan of L. M. Montgomery after all these years. It's been a while since I've read this one. Might be time for a re-read.

At 29, Yancey Stirling is unmarried and is facing a lifetime of mundane conversations with her controlling family, who want her to be the butt of their jokes but don't think activities like reading or daydreaming are appropriate. So she takes her life into her own hands! A little pre-world war I feminist empowerment from the author of Anne of Green Gables.

Another title from my #tbrexplode project that I was enjoying enough to finish.

Lifeisasnap I didn‘t even know L.M. Montgomery wrote a book like this! Thanks. 2mo

I really liked this. I liked Valency, though I hated her awful family. I liked some of the other characters, as Valency gets to know them after her rebellion from her family. It‘s frustrating, the lack of options for an unmarried woman during this time (the 1920s). It‘s slow-moving, but I really enjoyed it.

I listened to this during my drive this week and I still love it. This is the first LM Montgomery book I ever read and it's still my favorite. It's pure fluffy fairy tale and it makes me happy. Incidentally, The Hubs and I are visiting my parents at their cabin this weekend- my own personal blue castle.

mcipher Parents with cabins are the BEST! And this book is awesome, too. I haven‘t read it in years - I‘m really overdue for some LMM rereads. Have a wonderful weekend. 😊 6mo

In the beginning I was pretty unsure, if I would like it.... But I definitely changed my mind and I love it. Such a beautiful and gorgeous book about a young woman, who doesn't know her place and you discovers in just one summer, what life could be like. I really liked Anne, but I adore Valancy. 😍🤩😍🤩 What about you two @LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads ???

rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen @Sarah83 Sounds perfect! 😊 7mo
Buechersuechtling @Sarah83 Yepp, that it‘s part of Carlsen I knew. But it‘s already shut down (since spring 2018, I think) because they obviously didn‘t sell enough books: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlsen_Verlag?wprov=sfti1 7mo
Sarah83 @Buechersuechtling oh. I didn't know about it. 😮 7mo
LeahBergen @Sarah83 @rubyslippersreads How have the first 15 chapters been for you two? I‘m absolutely loving it! I had a notion that I had read this in my early teen years but I don‘t think I did as it all seems very new to me. I can‘t wait and have already starting reading our next 15 chapters (and I bet I go off schedule and finish this book early 😬). 7mo
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen @Sarah83 I‘m loving it too. 💙 I know I read it at least once years ago, but don‘t remember much at all. I think Valancy‘s mother and the perfectly-named Cousin Stickles are even worse than Aunts Elizabeth and Ruth in the Emily books. 7mo
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads Her family is horrible! I‘m quite surprised at how much more adult (in tone and subject matter) this one is in comparison to everything else I‘ve read of hers. I‘m on chapter 30. 😆😆 7mo
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen I think this and A Tangled Web are her only two novels written for adults. 7mo
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads I think so, too. And I‘m so glad I recently found that copy of A Tangled Web. It‘s a funny thing with me and LM Montgomery - I‘ve never ordered one of her books online. I always challenge myself to find them “in the wild”. 😆 It‘s easier being in Canada, I‘m sure. 7mo

March 2019 stats: 18 books read. Fave book: The Blue Castle 💙 Binged on public-domain ebooks (4) and audiobooks (2...for me that's a binge 😂).

Also, after watching The Ribos Operation this weekend, I think Valancy on the cover of The Blue Castle looks a bit like Romana (Mary Tamm).

Mehso-so

Some writers and their novels age well, like Agatha Christie or Georgette Heyer, some on the other hand show their age. Blue Castle was more the latter. Not a bad read, but the first half was mostly Valancy bemoaning her lot in life. Considering the time period though, there weren‘t a lot of options for women other than marriage. Predictable and a bit slow, but Valancy takes charge of her own life and gets her happy ever after.

“Days of clear brilliance. Evenings that were like cups of glamour - the purest vintage of winter's wine. Nights with their fire of stars. Cold, exquisite winter sunrises. Lovely ferns of #ice all over the windows of the Blue Castle...Ice-grey twilights, broken by snow-squalls, when their cosy living-room, with its goblins of firelight and inscrutable cats, seemed cosier than ever. Every hour brought a new revelation and wonder.” #QuotsyJan19

I love this book so, so, so much. I love the atmosphere and the description and the characters and the friendship. I love it, I love it, I love it. I think I may have read this one as a kid, and it didn‘t really make much of an impression on me. Now, it is what I always knew Montgomery could write. After rereading the Anne series, and then being disappointed with some of her other books, I am so happy to have read this. I enjoyed every moment.

Nothing could be more commonplace and conventional.
Any one might have said it. But Barney Snaith had a way of saying things that gave them poignancy. When he said good-evening you felt that it was a good evening and it was partly his doing that it was. Also, you felt that some of the #credit was yours. #QuotsyDec18

Valancy is certainly out of place in her family much like a partridge in a pear tree but I chose her more because this is a book I return to over and over again when I need a comfort read. So I thought of my most read book for the most repeated line. #12daysofchristmas

Eyelit One of my faves! Before I found Litsy I thought I was alone in my love for this book. So glad I‘m in such good company!! 💙 2y
BookInMyHands Yes! I was afraid that when I read it as an adult I wouldn‘t like it as much, but I do. You are right, it‘s a great comfort read. 2y

Oh, Mrs. Frederick, get your priorities straight. Of course it‘s more important that your daughter accidentally married her favourite author than that he‘s the son of a millionaire.
