Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

Rating: 5.0-5.0

My Thoughts:

If ever there was a character from a book that made you feel happy to be alive, it’s Anne Shirley. She’s spunky, cheerful, dreamy, and lovable. That’s why she’s such an enduring pillar in children fiction.

Anne Shirley is a young orphan girl who mistakenly gets delivered to the island of Prince Edward Island and into the care of brother/sister duo Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert. A mistake because the Cuthberts were expecting a boy, not a red-haired little girl. What ensues is a new life of mishaps, discovery, wonder, bosom friendship, a long-held grudge, and love after years of not being wanted. Montgomery tells a story of a young girl who, coupled with her vivid imagination, resolutely determines to take what comes her way.

Anne of Green Gables is the first in a series of 8 books Ms. Lucy Maud and has remained timeless. Definitely a classic worth reading more than once 🙂

Here are a few more favorite quotes:

“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.”

“People laugh at me because I use big words. But if you have big ideas, you have to use big words to express them, haven’t you?”

“Oh, it’s delightful to have ambitions. I’m so glad I have such a lot. And there never seems to be any end to them– that’s the best of it. Just as soon as you attain to one ambition you see another one glittering higher up still. It does make life so interesting.”
