RTW – Best Book I Read in July

7 Comments

A letter to Anne (with an “e”) Shirley of Green Gables:

Anne, Anne, Anne,

How you ramble on and on…

Often to the point of irritation.

But you have an amazing imagination and you’re spunky, clever, and independent.

Your grudge against Gilbert cracks me up.  Psst, I know you secretly lo-ove him.  Gah, who wouldn’t?  He’s a strapping lad with a brain to
match.

Anne, you make me love Prince Edward Island and I’ve never even been there.  You make me want to sit and pour my troubles out to Matthew, because he will quietly listen.  And then Marilla will tell me to shut up, which is just as well.

This book and the whole series, well, to quote one of my friends, it makes me nostalgic for a time I never even lived in.

Your kindred spirit and bosom friend,

Jen

P.S. I can’t wait to read more about your adventures in Avonlea!

P.P.S. YA Highway hosts RTW every week!

I write YA contemporary filled w/ romance, angst & family drama. Things I like: cats, snacks, baseball, green tea, taking pictures of trees & movies so bad, they’re good.

  1. “Anne, you make me love Prince Edward Island and I’ve never even been there.” WORD. She also makes me love Gilbert.

  2. I still haven’t read that series, much to my mother’s disappointment. :\

  3. Oh, she is the best. And Gilbert is strapping, isn’t he. Shazam!

  4. She is my favorite, favorite, favorite. Love Anne Shirley. Beautiful letter to her!

  5. Classic. 🙂 Great recommendation!

  6. I still haven’t read this series and I’ve been meaning to for forever. I really should pick it up!
