2016 Anne of Green Gables Reading Challenge: Rainbow Valley

Reading about their adventures in Rainbow Valley made me think of Anne’s days with the the Echo Lodge crew in Anne of Avonlea. It also made me think of Camp… Continue reading 2016 Anne of Green Gables Reading Challenge: Rainbow Valley

Anne of Green Gables Reading Challenge: Anne of Ingleside

I finished Anne of Ingleside long ago, and it is possibly my least favorite of the series, certainly it is the least memorable. I had to refresh my memory a bit. Montgomery has some precious episodes in this book about the Blythe children. Do you have a favorite of the Ingleside munchkins?

Anne of Green Gables Reading Challenge 2016: Anne’s House of Dreams Answers

Anne’s House of Dreams is one of my least favorite Anne books. It contains considerably too much Leslie. As much as I enjoy L.M. Montgomery books, she has a rather glaring failing: she simply doesn’t know how to fully develop most of her heroes. Gilbert is still in the background. Also, this book is more confined… Continue reading Anne of Green Gables Reading Challenge 2016: Anne’s House of Dreams Answers

The Story Girl Review

Montgomery wrote with her usual luminous, magical style of simplicity and enchantment, weaving in nature’s beauty with an artist and poet’s skill. I love the characters–both their uniqueness in themselves and their overall types. I love the freedom and silliness and jolliness and innocence of the children’s escapades. Their view of grownups and the grownups… Continue reading The Story Girl Review
