2016 Anne of Green Gables Reading Challenge | April Round Up

Anne Apr 2

Hello Readers!

So guilt + busy weekend has kept me from writing this post on time. Guilt? Yeah, cause you see, I haven’t finished Anne of Windy Poplars yet. Agh. I’m sorry, but it has been so hard sinking into this book! At the beginning of the month I said that it’s the one I’ve never actually read all the way through and it’s still true. I’m still working on it though and WILL FINISH IT SOON!

All that notwithstanding, I can still offer some discussion questions for those of you who have completed this month’s read.

  1. What do you think of Anne’s letter’s to Gil? Do you have any favorite lines? Are you or have you ever been a letter writer? Do you require a certain kind of writing instrument to write certain things?
  2. Whose your favorite character in this book? Any kindred spirits that stole your affection?
  3. This is the last book before the start of Anne’s married life. What have been your favorite moments in her childhood, adolescence and young adulthood? What has she learned? How has she changed? How has she remained the same?

Here’s the linky if you’re blogging your way through 🙂

Alrighty! That’s all I’ve got for this one. I’m not going to lie, while it’s interesting to see Anne in a totally different environment, I miss all the old familiar faces and I don’t like Gilbert not being around :(.  Y’all ready for the next chapter in her story? Hello May! Hello House of Dreams! I’ll have the next intro post up tomorrow.

Have a wonderful evening 🙂

2016 Anne of Green Gables Reading Challenge | April

Good afternoon!

I’m sorry about the lateness of this post but this one’s a bit tricky for me. You see, I don’t think I’ve ever actually read this book all the way through so I really don’t have much to say as a way for introduction!!

Here’s what I do know:

  • Anne and Gil have begun their long-distance engagement, with him at med school and her now beginning a new position as a principle and teacher at Summerside High School.
  • The series wasn’t written in order. Montgomery wrote books 1-3 consequtively, followed by 5, 7, & 8. Book 4, Anne of  Windy Poplars, was the seventh book written, followed by book 6,  Anne of Ingleside. 

The second installment of the TV series, Anne of Avonlea, is a loose adaptation of books 2-4 so I’m interested to see what made it on screen!

I’ll have both the discussion questions and answers at the end of the month because, you know, I’ve got to know the story to make them up!

Have a wonderful April, y’all and happy reading!
