What the book is about:

Anne of Green Gables is a bestselling 1908 novel by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery. Written as fiction for readers of all ages, the literary classic has been considered a children’s novel since the mid-twentieth century. It recounts the adventures of Anne Shirley, a young orphan girl mistakenly sent to Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, a middle-aged brother and sister who have a farm on Prince Edward Island and who had intended to adopt a boy to help them. The novel recounts how Anne makes her way with the Cuthberts, in school and within the town.

. . . . .

Why I like it:

Sighhhhh. Right? Of all the covers of this book that are available, I had to pick this one. I just love to see her face and her braids and her hat and Matthew and Marilla in the background and whahhhhhh I could just get teary talking about this book. Yes, the movies are so good, but the book? You cannot put it down. You don’t need me to tell you why every girl needs to read this. You already know. 🙂

    Great book. I’m older but still go back and read when I need a dose of optimism

    The whole series is amazing! I love Anne so much! And you have to read the authorized prequel that was published a few years ago! Makes you fall in love with Anne and PEI even more!
