I have loved and faithfully watched the movie-Anne of Green Gables since my tween years.
But up until now is that I have never read the book.
Even though I had a copy collecting dust on my bookshelf!
So, I put my Anne of Green Gables copy in the car to read during my sit and wait time- a chapter here and there.
Now I know why this book has been a favorite since 1908!
Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery is the charming story about Anne Shirley, an orphan girl who is sent to live with the Cuthberts by mistake. The serious and no nonsense Marilla Cuthbert and her kindhearted but shy brother Matthew, decide to keep her.
The story follows Anne on her adventures from young girl into her teen years. There are escapedes at tea parties, Sunday School socials, even at school. Anne is always getting into mishaps. The story also tells of friendship and the feud between Anne and a boy at school who calls her names.
I am glad that I finally read Anne of Green Gables.
I enjoyed laughing at Anne, as she prattles on abut things- she has a lot to say. I underlined quote after quote quote to be used at opportune moments.
While I don't recommend this title as a boy read, it is wonderful for girls and women!
Set out the tea set and read all about this red haired, freckled girl, Anne Shirley.
My love of this movie and now the book has inspired an- Anne spelled with an "e", Pinterest Board.
