The glorious feeling of falling in love with Anne



Yesterday morning I started with reading "Anne of Green Gables" by L.M. Montgomery, a book I had heard only great things about in the past. Growing up in Germany means that I mostly read children's books written by German authors and that I never read about Anne's adventures. Now as an adult I felt it was finally time to change that. So I bought the pretty Puffin version of "Anne of Green Gables" and to be honest I had no idea what to expect of the book. Maybe that's why I was so surprised and amazed by how Anne, the charm of the book and all the little adventures made me fall in love at first sight. I read the book within a few hours and afterwards immediately went online to find out if there are more books about Anne. You can imagine my happiness when I discovered that it's part of a series and that there are seven more books to read.

Falling in love with a book, its characters, its setting and its writing style is one of the best feelings in the world. It makes you all smiley and happy, it makes your heart feel warm and it makes the sun shine even on a cloudy day. Falling in love with a book is one of the best rewards for every reader, this is something I'm always looking forward when starting with a new book.


My only issue right now is that I want all eight books in the series, but I'm not the biggest fan of the available versions. But I guess I can live with not so pretty covers, as long as I get more of Anne, her charm, wit and her world. I saw that there will be new, pretty versions of the first two books in the series, "Anne of Green Gables" and "Anne of Avonlea", coming out by Vintage Children's Classics, let's hope that they will publish all eight books in the same style, because then I would be in heaven.

Books like "Anne of Green Gables" make me happy to be a reader and they make me excited to read more. I hope that you recently also fell in love with the book, it's something every readers deserves to experience as often as possible.

Happy reading!

  2. I never read the books but I love the anime tv series! I own the dvd box I loved that series as a child so much and I always wished to have red hair as Anne. ;) I really would love to read the books some time!

  4. Amazing! Despite living in the UK and being brought up on the British greats (Enid Blyton being the prime example), I was lucky enough to get introduced to Anne by my mum. They are super happy reads! Enjoy working your way through the series!

    1. An mir sind die deutschen Versionen leider komplett vorbeigegangen, was für eine Schande!

  6. I have read the Anne Books in my early Teenyears after I have seen the old tv production (this one: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088727/). The books are better:). Hope you could enjoy a happy reading during all books.

  9. Ah, this is so awesome to read! I'm Canadian so I knew about Anne from a VERY young age. And, I must admit, I was a wee bit obsessed. I read all the books in one summer. I watched the movies. I went to a play. I visited a house Montgomery lived and wrote it. I have yet to make it to PEI to the actual Green Gables but I'm hoping to in the next couple of years. I've been meaning to reread the series because I read them probably close to 15 years ago. Also, I love those covers! I think they really capture the spirit of Anne :)

    1. Lol, I guess as a kid I would also have become obsessed by Anne, she is so easy to adore.
