My favorite one since Anne of Green Gables. I‘m finally done with this series. I enjoyed the ride even though I think LMM was getting a bit tired there in the middle. #HeyCarrots #CrushTheRush #WinterGames2020 #ReadYourWay #LittenListen #ReadNoseReindeer #LittenListen #BookspinBingo

TheBookHippie I think she didn‘t get to do it exactly how she wanted fatigue maybe? I had the same thoughts while reading . 2y
rubyslippersreads Some of the series was written out of order and to placate her publisher. 2y

TheAromaofBooks Yes, like @rubyslippersreads said - I believe Windy Poplars and Anne of Ingleside were written out of order when Montgomery didn't really want to write them, although I just learned that a few years ago!! Rilla is possibly my favorite of the series. It makes me cry every time! 2y

I love this book so much. The characters are relatable, real, and likeable. I feel like I have grown and matured as Rilla did in the book. When I first read it, in my teens, I only noticed how romantic young love was during a war. How sweet was Una when Walter started to appreciate her, except it was too late. Now, I read it as a mother, and I relate more to Anne and Susan who sacrificed so much. #heycarrots @thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Flingogal

This one grew on me. At first I was disappointed that Anne was barely even in it, but then I started to like the characters. One more to go! #HeyCarrots #CrushTheRush #BookspinBINGO

TheAromaofBooks This is probably my least favorite of the series just because it's about the Merediths more than it is about the Blythes, but the actual stories and characters are still so delightful. I also love how even as a background character Anne comes through as such a loving & thoughtful person/mother. 2y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag Yass!!! 🥕 2y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick You can do it! 2y

"Before this war is over," he said - or something said through his lips -"every man and woman and child in Canada will feel it -you, Mary will feel it -feel it to your heart's core. You will weep tears of blood over it. The Piper has come-and he will pipe until every corner of the world has heard his awful and irresistible music. It will be years before the dance of death is over -years, Mary. And in those years millions of hearts will break.

Flingogal Great work!! I'm so impressed you got through them all! I very seriously dropped the ball on my own challenge 🤣🤔😭 2y

I enjoyed reading the Anne of Green Gables Series so much I decided to keep going with this prequel. #HeyCarrots.
What should I read next? Do you have a favorite and Anne retelling or LM Montgomery book?

Scochrane26 I recently read Marilla of Green Gables & enjoyed it. 2y
sblbooks @Scochrane26 good to know, it is on my TBR. 2y
Butterfinger Have you read the Emily of New Moon series? That is what I plan to read next after Rilla of Ingleside. I keep putting it off because I know what is coming and I don't want it to come. 2y
sblbooks @Butterfinger no I haven't. I'll read it after I read Marilla of Green Gables. 2y

Day 2: #home #forevernovember

I also love how Anne finds her first ‘home‘ at green gables.

My #NovemberTBR! I had a really good October so I‘m not feeling terribly daunted by what November holds - several library holds, my #GirlyBookClub pick, the #pemberlittens current read, my #mummydaughterbookclub book, the last #heycarrots that I haven‘t picked up yet, the #agathachristieclubr2, four more books as I try to #readmyowndamnbooks and only a few leftovers from last month!

ferskner Ooooo so many of these are on my TBR as well! 2y

Usually I end the month scrambling around to finish "assigned" books - I have decided to start with them this month!! Only a few chapters of the tagged book left (publisher review), then jumping into my 2 #LMPBC books (Bellewether and Kingdom of Back). Sittaford is October's #agathachristieclubr2 book & Rilla will complete my read-through of the Anne series with #HeyCarrots. I'm participating in 2 buddy reads this month- Northanger Abbey with ⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) the #PemberLittens and Moby Dick, hosted by @Clwojick. Moby hasn't come yet (!!!) but I'm excited about delving into a chapter a day for Northanger.

All of these books are on my #BookSpinBingo board as well - maybe I can actually score a bingo with my own challenge this month!! 😂

TheAromaofBooks @rabbitprincess - Thank you!! My husband built that shelf last winter & I'm especially fond of it as the board came from the orchard where I work!! 2y

#HeyCarrots

Although this is not my favorite of the series, I felt it left things in a good place. I miss the earlier books where Anne is the focus, but Rilla is my favorite out of the children, so I'm happy to end with her story.

readordierachel What a lovely cover 💚 2y
