Friday Favorites is a weekly meme hosted here
that spotlights a favorite author, book, series, publisher, cover, blog, etc. Basically whatever bookish thing that I love, recommend, and want to tell others about. Anyone is welcome to join along.
I've been thinking a lot about my growing up years and I remember
how much I feel in love with Anne of Green Gables. Is anyone
else with me? I loved that sweet romance, that blossomed
gradually over years and just couldn't
get enough of it. In fact, I wanted the whole set so
badly for my birthday, but my sister got it!
Luckily, she let me borrow her books and fell
in love with them just as much as I did. The wit, the humor,
the dialogue... If you haven't read this,
it's a must!!
Give it up for a great classic -- Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
As soon as Anne Shirley arrived at the snug, white farmhouse called Green Gables, she knew she wanted to stay forever... but would the Cuthberts send her back to the orphanage? Anne knows she's not what they expected -- a skinny girl with decidedly red hair and a temper to match. If only she could convince them to let her stay, she'd try very hard not to keep rushing headlong into scrapes or blurt out the very first thing she had to say. Anne was not like anybody else, everyone at Green Gables agreed; she was special -- a girl with an enormous imagination. This orphan girl dreamed of the day when she could call herself Anne of Green Gables.
