My favourite couple, not just in the Anne books but probably in all fiction, is Anne and Gilbert 💕 such a slow burn but so worth it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bibobooxmas18 2. #xmassocksunday #24daysofanne 2.

“Real life!  We get enough real life living.  I like fairy tales.  I like a nice snug tidy ending in a book with all the loose ends tucked in.” —Uncle Horace in “Mistress Pat” 🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁 If you like fairy tale endings like Uncle Horace, then you might be a fan of L.M. Montgomery, whose birthday is today. “Mistress Pat” is no exception to the rule, although I was starting to question whether she would get her fairy tale ending up to the very last pages of the book.  Pat had to be stripped of everything she loved before she was able to truly know her heart. . Although Pat kind of drives me crazy, I enjoyed a lot of the secondary characters in the Pat books.  Judy Plum was wonderful as was the addition of Tillytuck in “Mistress Pat”. Also, if you love cats, Silver Bush is overflowing with them. . . . #mistresspat #lmmontgomery #lucymaudmontgomery #authorbirthday #fairytaleending #bookworm #booklove #annestagram #booksoutofdoors #booksinthewild
I don’t normally post twice in 24 hours (or it may even be three if I post tonight). Apologies if I’m overwhelming your Insta, but I had to get my post in early for LM Montgomery’s birthday!  Happy Birthday LMM! 📚  What’s your favorite Montgomery novel? 📚 🌳 🌲 📖  @lmmheirs @lmminstitute @lmmheritage #lmm #lmmontgomery #anneofgreengables #12daysofannestagram #annestagram #canadianliterature #writtenbywomen #barnesandnobleclassics  #bookworm #bibliophile #instareads #books #book #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #booksofinsta #bookstagrammer #readersofinstagram #readinglife #writerlife #writersofinstagram #readersofig #booknerd #booksbooksbooks #bookish #igbooks #igreads
Happy 144th birthday to Canada’s beloved author Lucy Maud Montgomery! 📖🎂👒
#partner Thanks to @tundrabooks for a free copy of the new board books Anne’s Colors and Anne’s Numbers!  They were the perfect addition to my book list for Anne of Green Gables fans. 📖 2018 had been a great year for Anne fans! There have been so many wonderful Anne and L.M. Montgomery related books released this year that are perfect for introducing the next generation to beloved characters or to build up your home collection if you’re a collector.  I compiled a list of the books released this year, plus a couple from last year, so you can make sure you don’t miss any of the options for the Anne lovers in your life!  The full list is on my blog (direct link in profile) and includes a couple more books than those pictured here. 📖 Anne’s Colors and Anne’s Numbers are fun, colorful board books that are great for teaching young children basic concepts while also providing some nods to Anne.  The illustrations are unique and engaging with their hand embroidered designs, although I think it would have been extra neat if you could actually feel the fabrics. 📖 Do you see any on this list you’ve loved?  Who has read Marilla of Green Gables?  I already shared my glowing review, but I’ve been hearing lots of great response from others as well!
Another “discovery”...I came across this book when I was sorting out some boxes which had been stored in the loft...I can’t remember buying it myself - it was must have been from a book sale as it has a library stamp and the price 10p inside the cover. Last person to ‘borrow’ it did so in Feb.1983. Anne of Green Gables was my mother’s favourite (and I was given my middle name - Anne - because of this book) so I think this should now be a priority for my tbr pile... #anneshouseofdreams #lmmontgomery #booklove #favouritebook #annestagram #classicliterature #anneofgreengables #bookstagram #booklover #vintagebooks #bookworm
Coming December 1st. Twenty-four days of Christmas, Anne, and Lucy Maud Montgomery ✨ hosted by myself and the lovely @anne_please_spell_it_with_an_e. We would love for you to participate too. 💞 #24daysofanne #christmaswithmaud
This is my Anne read for the month of November. Each time I read it, I like it a little more. It took me almost the whole month to read it for busyness, but a little head cold slowed things down enough to complete it. I love Anne and this was the perfect book to re-read this season. . . . . . #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #annestagram #anneofgreengables #annewithane #annegirl #reread #favorites #bookseries #bookworm #fallreads #cozyread #bookish #books
It's still officially fall, but I think we've seen the last of these sunny and mild days. It didn't rain today like it did yesterday, but other than a walk, I did a few things around the house and read a book. It felt so great to read a whole book in less than 24 hours! * * * #bookphotography #anneofavonlea #avonlea #readtundra #anneshirley #annestagram #readthenorth #fallcolours #booksoutofdoors #canadian #bookaddict #coverlove #becauseofreading #ilovereading #bookcollection #booknerdigans #bibliophile #anneofgreengables #greengables #reader #lmmontgomery #lucymaudmontgomery

"Isn't nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?" Lucy Maud Montgomery  #repost @girlsreadtheworld (@get_repost) ・・・ My post yesterday featured a young reader version of L. M. Montgomery's biography.  Well, I hope you're sitting down, because this is an EARLY reader version of L. M. Montgomery's biography! 🤯 (Now, I must pause quickly to say thank you to @quartokids for sending me all of these amazing Little People, BIG DREAMS books - I still have a few more to post!) 😍 I love this series so much, to begin with.  In case you're a newbie, these books are short biographies of amazing women throughout history and around the world.  They're full of beautiful illustrations and concise enough that you can read them to your two year olds, and your 8 year olds can read them alone and enjoy them - and everyone in between. ❤ This book is no exception. I love the focus of this one - Maud wanted to be a writer, from the time she was a young girl.  But she was constantly told no, girls could not write. She kept trying, in different ways - writing in secret, finally getting  a (sadly, short-lived) job as the only woman on the newspaper staff, and finally, getting a job at the post office so she could send off her stories in secret!  What a great story and role model for all those little girls who are told they can't do what they dream of doing. 💪 Love this book, love the illustrations, and it's just another one we are so happy to add to our collection! . . . #lmmontgomery #anneofgreengables #annestagram #annewithane #writer #trailblazer #girlscandoanything #girlsruletheworld #girlpower #kidlit #lpbd #littlepeoplebigdreams #pequeñaygrande #petitaigran #småmäniskorstoradrömmar #småfolkstoredrømmer #småmenneskerstøredromme #depetiteagrande #petiteetgrande #meninaspequenasgrandessonhos #piccoledonnegrandisogni #childrenbook #onebookatweek #mariaisabelsanchezvegara #isabelsanchezvegara #dreambiglittleone #instabook #inspiring
#thankfulbookworms challenge  Day 10 *final prompt*  I’m thankful for you because... Here’s a tribute to my mom for instilling the love of reading in me. 📗Thank you, Mom, for reading to me when I was little. You must have had some of the #littlegoldenbooks memorized.📗 📘Thank you, Mom, for hauling all of us to the library after school and letting us pick out books and story tapes. That was the highlight of the week.📘 📙Thank you, Mom, for being so particular about the books we read. You knew the huge influence books have on small (and big) minds.📙 📕Thank you, Mom, for teaching us that books are our friends. “Books are our friends and we don’t hurt friends, so don’t lay them open face-down; or tear pages out; We don’t write on our friends, so don’t scribble in books; or crumple pages and drop them in the toilet. Books are our friends, so treat them nicely.” This was when we were little but the admonition must have stuck. I was just telling my sis that she should go through her books and sell what she doesn’t want. She replied, “No! Books are our friends and we don’t sell our friends.”😄 📚Thank you, Mom. I’m ever grateful to have you as my mom and my best friend💕  Also a big ‘thank you’ to @bookworm_baggins for hosting this 10-day prompt! I enjoyed it😊 Now...to show gratitude every.single.moment.🍂🍃🍂🍃 . . . #bookstagram #annestagram #anneofgreengables #serenahorst #readabook #readaloudrevival #bookphoto #beautifulbooks #librarylover #booklife #gratefuleveryday #lmmontgomery #anneshirley
Hei pitkästä aikaa 💕 Välillä mulla tulee kausia, jolloin ei oikein saa aikaiseksi/tee mieli edes avata Instagramia, ja viime päivinä on ollut sellainen vaihe! Ajattelin kuitenkin nyt taas antaa tämän hetken suurimman kirja-aarteeni johdatella mut takaisin 😉 Tässä viimeinen kirjamessulöytöni, joita olen esitellyt vähän tipoittain. Olen etsinyt tätä ekaa Annaa pitkään, ja viimein onni potkaisi ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hello again! My greatest bookish treasure of the moment is this 1943 edition of Anne of Green Gables in Finnish (translation: Hilja Vesala) that I found at Helsinki book fair ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #annannuoruusvuodet #anneofgreengables #annestagram #anneshirley #lucymaudmontgomery #lmmontgomery #kirjamessut2018 #bookstagram #bookgram #booksofinstagram #booklover #bookish #bibliophile #bookworm #instabook #ilovebooks #bookhoarder #reader #toberead #kirjagram #kirjalöytö #kirja #vanhatkirjat #oldbooks #vintagebooks
Do you like epistolary novels? I've read a couple that I really enjoyed: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, as well as The Chilbury Ladies Choir. When I read Anne of Windy Poplars, I found I didn't enjoy the style much. It actually made me feel a little distant from Anne! It didn't surprise me later to find out that this book was written out of order, much later than many of the others in the series. * * * #anneofgreengables #anneofwindypoplars #anneshirley #annestagram #readthenorth #readtundra #booksofinstagram #canadian #coverlove #booklove #bookish #booklover #goodreads #reader #readersofinstagram #pages #bookphotography #bookmania
"Life is worth the living, as long as there's a laugh in it." Anne of the Island. I love Anne in part because she's an easy laugh. She loves life and looks for ways to improve it. This quote is made by her friend Stella in a conversation they are having but it so suits Anne that I had to use it on her mug. Such a cherry character and my literary best friend! . .

Day 5 prompt (yes, I missed one!) for the #thankfulbookworms challenge being hosted by @bookworm_baggins asks us to provide a bookworm match. I was looking over my bookshelves, thinking of Anne (per usual) and I'd say if you like Anne, you'd surely 💗 Caddie Woodlawn. Spunky, quirky, fun and adventurous, Anne and Caddie make a fun match! . . . . #bookrecommendations #annestagram #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookishfriends #bookworm #books #booklove #readersofinstagram #ilovebooks #beautifulbooks
“It was really beautiful to come home at night...to step out of darkness into the light and warmth of home.” —Pat of Silver Bush 🌲🌳🏡🌳🌲 L.M.Montgomery writes an ode to home in this coming of age novel.  Pat hates change, but life is full of changes from a new baby sister (picked from the parsley bed) and a wedding, to siblings moving away and a heart-breaking death.  Through it all though, Silver Bush never changes and this novel is full of love for home and the landscape that surrounds it. . I’ve read mixed reviews of this novel.  I think people who are content with more “old-fashioned” notions of hearth and home would really enjoy it.  Pat (and Judy) have some ideas that may rankle readers with a modern outlook.  It might disappoint those who are expecting to meet a brilliant, funny, clever, spunky, or romantic heroine.  Pat is a nice, no-nonsense girl who loves her home beyond measure and whose ambition is to be an (unmarried) homemaker.  My July 1989 edition was marketed as YA Fiction.  I think the YA market has changed a little since then. 😊 . I finished this up a little later than planned.  It wasn’t a page-turner that demanded my attention, but was a quiet, comforting book that I enjoyed reading slowly.  I plan to read the sequel, “Mistress Pat” in November. 3.5⭐️ . . . #patofsilverbush #lmmontgomery #lucymaudmontgomery #annestagram #domesticbliss #hearthandhome #bookreview #bookstagram #booklove #bookworm
f i r s t  #heidiinbookland  d i s c u s s i o n 👇🏻 . . (This discussion is about the first half of Anne of Green Gables. If you haven't read this far yet, or you're just joining us, or you want to wait until the book is complete, have no fear! A discussion about the second half/book as a whole will take place in early December.) . . Something that stood out to me so much during this part of the book was Marilla and how she reacted to/"parented" Anne. More often than not she tried to take Anne's background into account. She tried to teach Anne from square one. I loved how she defended Anne, in her own way, when it came to the Rachel Lynde situation. And how she stood by Anne when Diana Barry's mother accused Anne of purposefully getting Diana drunk. There were many small instances that I saw as moments we all experience in motherhood. Or moments we hope to have. Marilla is a great example of patience and understanding when it comes to our children. . . As always, any interaction with Mrs. Lynde is entertaining to me. . . I love Anne's drama but most especially about her red hair. As someone who has constantly changed my hair growing up, I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have that option. . . Those are just some of my thoughts for now. Will reschedule the IG Live soon and delve more into these points and others. Plus I'll respond to your comments and questions and thoughts below! . .

So, I came down with strep throat in the middle of autumn’s #12daysofannestagram (seriously?! what is up with my immune system?!). And it’s the last day of #montgomerysoctober2018.  But this is my pick for an LM Montgomery book to read in autumn.  And it goes with my preference for not-too-scary scary stories.  Just shadowy enough.  Happy Hallowe’en Everyone! 👻 🎃 👻  #lmm #lmmontgomery #lucymaudmontgomery #annestagram #shortstories #amongtheshadows #canadianliterature #womenslit #writtenbywomen #womanauthor #bookworm #bibliophile #instareads #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookstagrammer #readersofinstagram #readinglife #writerslife #writer #writersofinstagram #writersofinsta #readersofig #booknerd #bookish #igbooks #igreads
I recently obtained my library card for my new library which I am taking advantage of to check out books I've long heard of and was curious about. Six pages into this one and I'll be happy to return it. Little brothers spying on their sister and her friends changing clothes, boy crushes and a desire to be 13 to go out on dates!?! No thanks. If you like Anne, just read Anne. It's infinitely more clever, funny and satisfying. . . . . #didntlikeit #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #anneshirley #annestagram #bookbust #nothankyou #illtakeapass #donereading #lucymaudmontgomery #favoriteauthor #fanfiction

“Well, let’s forget our troubles and think of our mercies,” said Anne gaily. “Mrs. Allan says that whenever we think of anything that is a trial to us we should also think of something nice that we can set against it.” 🍁 Yes, let’s do as Anne and not wake up this morning thinking of all of our trials and troubles and to-do list (that’s a sure fire way to get my day started on the wrong foot), but start the day off being aware of the mercies we’ve been given and the fact that we have breath and a fresh beginning this Monday. 🍁 I finished Anne of Avonlea over the weekend, and it was such a delight to get lost in the stories of these characters, especially when used as a counterweight to also reading a murder mystery 😉 I look forward to slowly making my way through the rest of the series, and I find it real comforting to read alongside something more heavy or to lull myself to sleep with! 🍁 #book #bookpic #annestagram #anneofgreengables #classicbook #booknerdigans #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #ilovereading #alwaysreading #bibliophile #southernliving #booksandtea #letsbehomebodies #bookworm #bookcommunity #booknerd #bookaddict #fallreading #bookish #bookishfeatures
We love Anne! 😊😊 Repost from @girlsreadtheworld using @RepostRegramApp - Last night my oldest daughter said something awesome to me. She said "You know, Mama, when you come home and you tell us you have a surprise and it's a new book, that's my favorite kind of surprise." How cool is that?? 😍 I have always, always loved books and I started reading with my girls literally from the day they were born. We read every. single. night.  And I know not everyone does this, and not everyone CAN do this. We are lucky. And I am grateful that my girls are growing up with a love of reading and stories and learning about the world around them. 💪 So all of that is a big leadup to this awesome book here. You guys have heard of BabyLit board books, right?  They are magnificent board books that introduce little ones to works of literature - and fabulous heroines -, new vocabulary and concepts.  Plus, they are freaking adorable. And you can read to the very littlest of littles. You can start them young, and you can read these books over and over. And since it's October...well, you might as well start with Anne. 😜 . . . #anneofgreengables #babylitbooks #babylit #annewithane #annestagram #12daysofannestagram #october #girlpower #fiercefemales #trailblazers #classics #earlyreader #boardbook #kidlit #childrensbooks #yeskidsbookstagram #readmore #bookworm #booklover #bookcommunity #readersofinstagram #readearly #readingisfundamental #reading #booknookstagram #bookishgirl #readtoyourkids #readaloudrevival #coverart #girlsreadtheworld

#partner @williammorrowbooks Happy Release Day to Marilla of Green Gables by @sarahmmccoy!  After reading an advance copy I had the opportunity to ask the author some questions.  You can see all of her wonderful answers, my full review, and more information on my new blog post through the link in my profile. • When I heard this book was coming out I was simultaneously excited and nervous. The characters of Anne of Green Gables are some of my most beloved characters and I was worried that I wouldn’t like what the author did with them.  I’m thrilled to say that I loved this book! • The author spent time walking where L.M. Montgomery walked, scouring books, fully experiencing Prince Edward Island, and talking to Montgomery’s family members. I felt like that care and devotion really shone through while the author still allowed herself to make her own creations and interpretations. • I loved seeing the imagined origins of so many iconic aspects to the book (like the amethyst brooch and red currant wine) as well as the early stages of Marilla’s relationships– including her friendship with Rachel, her tender sibling relationship with Matthew, and her sweet and heart breaking romance with John Blythe.  The story was emotionally poignant, the characterizations were rich and fit so well into what I could believe of them.  The political/social context of the story was fascinating as well. • And, perhaps best of all, reading this book made me want to reread Anne of Green Gables once again with these new possibilities and insights on my mind.  With such widely beloved characters and such a range of reader views, there are bound to be people who don’t like this ‘origin story’, but for me, it completely worked. I am very curious to hear what other Anne fans will think of it!  I’m dying to discuss it so please come back and tell me your thoughts after you read!
"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers." Anyone heard that quote?  Ok, ok, I know it's been everywhere lately. (With good reason- I mean, it IS October). But in case you haven't, it's a lovely quote by the fiery, strong-willed redhead, Anne of Green Gables. I do have a soft spot for Anne with an "e", so I decided I couldn't let October pass without a shout-out.  But then I realized I didn't actually know much about her creator, L.M. Montgomery.  And I bet lots of you don't, either! So today I bring you House of Dreams: The Life of L.M. Montgomery. ❤ It's a biography for young readers (ages 10-14), and it's impressively comprehensive and well-researched for a young readers version of anything.  Yet it's also written in a way that's totally palatable to middle graders, reading almost like fiction - I found it really easy to read. So what did I learn about L.M. Montgomery? Among other things, and in no particular order: . 1. She suffered major losses as a child and even into adulthood and struggled with depression and anxiety. . 2. She also struggled with trying to break free from her family's and society's strict expectations of both her and women generally. . 3. Anne of Green Gables was created out of just two sentences: "Elderly couple apply to orphan asylum for a boy. By mistake a girl is sent them." . 4. She once had a conversation with Earl Grey, the visiting governor general of Canada - who had come to see her - on the steps of a women's outhouse. . 5. She got no money from a "talkie" version of Anne of Green Gables - the actress of whom later changed her name to Anne Shirley! . 6. She was nonetheless one of the best paid authors of her time. 💪 Another highly recommended read. ❤ . . . #houseofdreams #candlewickpress #lmmontgomery #anneofgreengables #annewithane #annestagram #girlpower #fiercefemales #trailblazers #mentalhealth #classics #biography #nonfiction #youngreader #middlegreadereads #kidlitpicks_middlegrade #kidlit

Happy Monday, y’all! We took my girls to Disney this past weekend, and I may or may not have stuffed a couple of books into our stroller (remember I have this fear of going anywhere without a book on standby 😜) much to my husbands dismay (still not sure after all these years of being with me, how this is surprising to him 🤷🏼‍♀️). . All that being said, one of the prompts for the #12daysofannestagram was “your favorite non-Anne book by L.M.Montgomery”, and I knew this book would be it, and that I just HAD to have a picture with it in front of Cinderella’s castle! So I’m a few days late, but it was a blur of a weekend! . If you haven’t read The Blue Castle, I highly recommend it! It’s actually in my top favorite books of all times! If you enjoy a light hearted story with depth, adventure, quirky characters, humor, and an unlikely romance, try this one! I adored the main character, Valancy, because she goes from being a “people-pleaser” and only doing what others told her to do, to becoming quite plucky, chasing after her dreams, and having some gumption! You’ll be rooting for her the whole way through. . Have any of you read The Blue Castle? Do you have a favorite non-Anne L.M.Montgomery book? Hope everyone has a great start to the week! . #anneofgreengables #lmmontgomery #classicbooks #read #book #books #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booknerdigans #bookpic #bookphotography #annestagram #annetober #alwaysreading #favoritebook .
Today's prompt for the #12daysofannestagram is Fall foliage and Anne. This cover for Anne of Windy Poplars definitely makes me think of fall weather. We've been spoiled around here for a couple of weeks, but I'm sure umbrella weather is on its way back to us this week. * * * #anneofwindypoplars #readtundra #annetober #anneshirley #anneofgreengables #lmmontgomery #lucymaudmontgomery #bibliophile #readthenorth #childrensbooks #ilovereading #canadian #booklove #epistolary #classics #bookworm #igreads #goodreads #annestagram #booksoutofdoors #leaves #fall
Day 6 Anne with fall foliage. To be honest it’s been a late and poor season for color, and yet every day I see something that makes my heart swell and almost ache from  its beauty. Lucy Maude Montgomery had a hard and, in many ways, love-deprived childhood being raised by her stern grandparents. I’m so glad she grew up in a place like Prince Edward Island where she was surrounded by so much natural beauty. She took such obvious joy in it, I hope she also found succor. . . .

“I couldn't live where there were no trees--something vital in me would starve.” —Anne’s House of Dreams 🌲🌳🌴🌳🌲 It’s the last day of #12daysofannestagram so I had to post my 2nd favorite book in the series (after AOGG, of course) with some fall foliage that I picked up outside of church in town this morning. Thanks for the fun week @thebooksellersdaughter and @carrottoppapershop . . 🍁🍂💛 Does your house of dreams have trees?  What kind? . . . #annestagram #anneshouseofdreams #fallfoliage #bookquotes #lmmontgomery #montgomerysoctober2018 #favoritebook #booklove
On Friday October 19, we were thrilled to publicly announce that we have received the Ontario Trillium Foundation Seed Grant. This grant will help us realize our vision for the future L.M. Montgomery Museum and Literary Arts Centre in Norval. Thanks to the support of the Heritage Foundation of Halton Hills, the Town of Halton Hills, and Mayor Rick Bonnette, we are one step closer to bringing L.M. Montgomery home to Norval!
Today is the last day of the #12daysofannestagram. I really love these inspiring challenges by @thebooksellersdaughter and @carrottoppapershop! Thanks, ladies! This is yesterday's prompt: Favourite L.M. Montgomery book for fall reading. For me, Anne of Green Gables is like comfort food, so that's my choice. Fall is when work ramps up again, and I'm usually hit with a cold or two, as I get used to being back with all the germy students! 😂 * * * #ilovereading #annestagram #annetober #lucymaudmontgomery #lmmontgomery #anneofgreengables #anneshirley #avonlea #readthenorth #canadian #fiction #classic #classics #childrensbooks #kidlit #childrensliterature #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookspines #readtundra #bookstack
I'm a day behind on the #12daysofannestagram challenge, so here is yesterday's prompt: Glad to live in a world with Octobers.  October here in Victoria, BC quite often means fall colours against blue sky. Of course we get our share of rain, but we're lucky to have such a beautiful fall season. Do you have a distinct fall season where you live? * * * #anneofavonlea #avonlea #readtundra #anneshirley #annestagram #readthenorth #fallcolours #booksoutofdoors #canadian #bookaddict #coverlove #becauseofreading #ilovereading #bookcollection #booknerdigans #bibliophile #anneofgreengables #greengables #reader #annetober #lmmontgomery #lucymaudmontgomery
“The kitchen yard was full of the pale gold of aspens and the turkey house was almost lost in a blaze of crimson sumacs.  The white birches...were amber, and the huge maple over the well was a flame.” —Mistress Pat 🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁🍂 I don’t know that I have a particular favorite LMMontgomery book to read in the fall, but “Mistress Pat” certainly has the most autumnal cover of all my Bantam paperbacks and this description of the trees at Silver Bush appears in the first chapter. It’s nearly impossible to find a book written by LMMontgomery that doesn’t have a beautiful descriptions of nature in all it’s seasons, though. 🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁 Have you read the Pat books? They are not usually ranked highly as favorites of Montgomery fans. . . . #12daysofannestagram #annestagram #natureinthewrittenword #mistresspat #lmmontgomery #lucymaudmontgomery #coverlove
“October was a beautiful month at Green Gables, when the birches in the hollow turned as golden as sunshine and the maples behind the orchard were royal crimson and the wild cherry trees along the lane put on the loveliest shades of dark red and bronzy green, while the fields sunned themselves in the aftermaths.  Anne reveled in the world of color about her.” —Anne of Green Gables 💛🍁🍃🍂💔 These are the lines that precede Anne’s famous and oft quoted, “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers!” October has been slightly less than colorful here this year.  It’s been such a damp, brown and green autumn that I might have to drive in to town to collect some colorful leaves for the last day of #12daysofannestagram . . . #annestagram #montgomerysoctober2018 #lmmontgomery #lucymaudmontgomery #booklove #bookworm #bookquotes
I’m a couple days behind on the October rendition of #12daysofannestagram hosted by @carrottoppapershop and @thebooksellersdaughter but I’ll get there eventually! The second prompt was ‘Cozy with Anne’. I don’t think that would be hard to do at all with any one of the gorgeous @viragopress covers of the Anne series, especially this one. Is this quintessential falltimey or what?! Add a scarf and a beverage and you’ve got yourself a good time. 👍🍂🧣🍁
Today’s prompt for #12daysofannestagram is “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” I adore seasons, and want to immerse myself fully in them (like wearing boots and scarves, roasting marshmallows, reading by a cozy fire, drinking hot cocoa and apple cider, etc.), but my lovely southern state apparently has not received the memo that it’s mid October, and it shouldn’t still be 90 out 🙈🙄🤷🏼‍♀️ So when all else fails, I escape into a book that feels like Fall/October and live vicariously through you folks who have an actual Fall season 😊 . Do you have a favorite season? Happy Friday and weekend 🍂🍁🍂 . #annestagram #anneofgreengables #octoberreads #october #fallreads #carrottoppapershop #falldecor #booknerdigans #bookstagram #flatlay #bookworm #bookaddict #alwaysreading #sunnystateofmind #sunnystateofbooks #kindredspirits #bookishfeatures #bookish #annetober @carrottoppapershop @thebooksellersdaughter
#12daysofannestagram - autumn, Day 2 Prompt:  Cozy Anne 🐈  Yep, I’m still a day behind. 🐈  @oneaponceatime posted such an adorable picture of her orange cat & kittens for this prompt that I felt inspired to do the same!  And we know Montgomery herself liked cats, so it feels fitting.  Plus, he’s a writer, too.  He sneaks off with my pens and I just KNOW he’s working on a novel. 🐈 #annestagram #anneofgreengables #anneofwindywillows #anneofwindypoplars #lmmontgomery #lmm #viragomodernclassics #catsofinstagram #petsofinstagram  #bookworm #bibliophile #instareads #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookstagrammer #readersofinstagram #readinglife #writerlife #writerslife #writer #writersofinstagram #writersofinsta #writersofig #readersofig #booknerd #bookish #igreads
“Do you never imagine things different from what they really are?" asked Anne wide-eyed. ... “Oh, Miss--Marilla, how much you miss!" —Anne of Green Gables . Be like Anne and imagine this is a pumpkin and not a gourd for Day 3 of #12daysofannestagram Pumpkins and Anne. 😉 . . . #annestagram #lucymaudmontgomery #lmmontgomery #anneofgreengables #octoberwithanne #montgomerysoctober2018
“Isn’t this evening just like a purple dream, Diana? It makes me so glad to be alive. In the mornings I always think the mornings are the best; but when evening comes I think it’s lovelier still.” . I love that quote from Anne of Green Gables because it resonated with me so much! I think sunrises are stunning (though it’s a rare thing I witness), but then the sun will set, and I’m just as in awe and struck by the beauty of Gods handiwork as I was with the sunrise! Do you enjoy one more than the other, or are you with Anne and I, believing both are equally magical?! . I missed yesterday’s prompt of “cozy Anne” with the #12daysofannestagram theme this week, so I combined today’s prompt (Anne and pumpkins), with my favorite cozy thing, a candle 😊 . Happy Thursday, y’all! Hope you’re able to catch the sunset tonight! . #anneofgreengables #annestagram #annetober #pumpkins #book #booksandpumpkins #fallreading #traderjoes #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booknerd #bookpic #fallread #fallresding #read #booknerdigans #happyfall #ilovebooks #ilovereading #kindredspirits #riflepaperco #classicbook #puffininbloom #puffinclassics @puffinbooksusa @penguinclassics

Hurray for the #12daysofannestagram autumn edition!  Prompt 1 - Anne and a Beverage 🍁 (Technically this was yesterday’s prompt, but I’m trying to get it in under the wire) 🍂  I used to read Anne of the Island every year as my back-to-school book, so it seems only fitting to use it as my first book for the Anne fall challenge.  Plus, it’s my favorite of the Annes.  What’s your favorite, favourite Anne book? 🍁  Shown here with Tea Merchants tea and a mug, both from PEI.  The mug was a gift, but I think it’s from Michael Stanley Pottery. 🍁 🍂  If you want to participate in #12daysofannestagram , look for the prompt list from its creators, @carrottoppapershop and @thebooksellersdaughter 🍁 🍁 🍁  #anneofgreengables #anneoftheisland #princeedwardisland #pei @lmminstitute #annestagram #lmmontgomery #michaelstanleypottery #teamerchants #peipreservecompany #canadianliterature #writtenbywomen #bookworm #bibliophile #instareads  #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookstagrammer #readersofinstagram #readinglife #writerlife #writerslife #writer #booknerd #bookish #igbooks #igreads
Well color me stoked - my awesome pals @carrottoppapershop and @thebooksellersdaughter are throwing another #12daysofannestagram party! The #annetober version! A more mini sized, autumnal falltimey gathering of Anne goodness. So excited! The first prompt is to show off some Anne with a beverage. I can’t think of anything more cozy than to pick your favorite Anne book and read it in Autumn 🍂 with a cup of tea! 🍂🍄🍁🧣🌾🐿 I’d like to take the time to remind that my Anne of Green Gables book surprise boxes are available all year round (except December) and are so packed with Anne goodness it’s bonkers.

Oh darling, let’s be homebodies...and read Anne all night long 😉 . Anne will always have a special place in my heart, so when @carrottoppapershop and @thebooksellersdaughter announced the #12daysofannestagram, I thought it would be fun to participate with all of you fellow #kindredspirits 😊 . Today’s prompt is Anne and a beverage, which is usually coffee, because coffee is my love language 😜 ☕️ And my adorable coffee mug (which is perfect for a homebody like me who wants to spend my evenings reading) is a recent purchase from @bookshelftville! . I also got inspired to re-read the whole Anne of Green Gables series by @linesiunderline, and am currently reading the second book, Anne of Avonlea! What a pure delight to escape into Anne’s world right now! . Are any of you participating in these fun #bookish prompts and happenings? What’s your favorite Anne book?! . #bookworm #bibliophile #anneofgreengables #annestagram #octoberreads #fallreading #coffeeandflowers #coffeeandbooks #read #bookstagram #booknerdigans #bookstagrammer @azaleahillfarm
#12daysofannestagram is back for a short October photo challenge because Anne is so fond of Octobers.  My fall beverage is orange juice.

I'm getting ready for the #12daysofannestagram over here by painting my favorite heroine of all time! 👒 Since I've starting painting pegs I've meant to paint her. I finally sat down and painted her today! She's wearing a dashing navy dress, and holding a spoon ready to stir that batter for plum puffs!😬🐀😅 I just couldn't resist putting that cracked slate with "Carrots" scrolled on it and an open book at her feet!  What is your favorite story of Anne?  I'll be posting my over Anne inspiration throughout the week in my stories!👒🌻 #annewithane #anneshirley #anneofgreengables #pegdolls #wooden #literaryheroines #annestagram #thatsdarling #plumpuffs #princeedwardisland #christmasgifts #carrots #redheads

#keepreadinganne 🌿  We’re almost halfway through October! Have you been reading ANNE OF AVONLEA along with us? I’m really enjoying the return to Green Gables. It feels like I’m catching up with old friends. . We’ve picked up where book one left off, Anne is sixteen and just beginning her new job as Avonlea’s schoolteacher. . . So let’s discuss favorite teachers! Tell me about one of yours. Do you have a particularly fond memory? What was it about him/her that made them so special? . . My high school English teacher, Ms. MacLean was one of my favorites. We read The Crucible, The Great Gatsby, Of Mice and Men and so many other great classics, and she did such a great job of really fostering a love of reading in her students. She encouraged us to read anything we enjoyed, and we would have great discussions in class. Long before I was a part of a book club, that class felt like a warm place to talk about what we were reading. Also it secured my love for classic American lit.💙❤️ . . . . . . . #ciannereadsclassics #bookstagram #bookish #booklove #bookworm #ilovebooks #goodreads #literature #bibliophile #bookobsessed #bookpic #booknerd #instabook #reader #instareads #igbooks #bookaholic #readersofinstagram #girlswhoread #anneofavonlea #annestagram #lmmontgomery #tundrabooks #readwomen #currentlyreading #amreading #readalong
“Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.” Sir Walter Scott, Marmion  LMMontgomery turns the reference to that poem on it’s head as she creates a protagonist who is not one who lies, but one who prides herself on bring brutally honest. . “It must be admitted frankly that Aunt Becky was not particularly beloved by her clan. She was too fond of telling them what she called the plain truth. And, as Uncle Pippin said, while the truth was all right, in its place, there was no sense in pouring out great gobs of it around where it wasn't wanted. To Aunt Becky, however, tact and diplomacy and discretion, never to mention any consideration for any one's feelings, were things unknown.” . We meet everyone from the Dark and Penhallow clans as they come to Aunt Becky’s last levee before she dies.  She is in possession of a family heirloom that all the clan members either want for themselves or are curious to find out who will get it.  What they get is a dose of Aunt Becky’s saltiness and then the novel follows several of their stories as they have to wait another year to find out who will win the prize. . There are a LOT of names to keep straight, but the stories of Peter and Donna, Hugh and Joscelyn, Gay and Noel and Nan and Roger, Big Sam and Little Sam; Margaret Penhallow, Little Brian, Dandy Dark, Drowned John, the Moon Man and more are compelling and I found myself flying through this book. . Along with “The Blue Castle” this novel was written with a more adult audience in mind and it should be noted that the story unfortunately ends on a rather offensive note. . Are you planning on reading anything by LMMontgomery in October? “Pat of Silver Bush” is next on my list! . . . #lmmontgomery #atangledweb #montgomerysoctober2018 #booklove #bookworm #igreads #bookstagram #booksandflowers #booksandbotanicals #bookreview #annestagram
It’s October! And although I have a stack of fall themed reads to make my way through, I’m most excited for this one. ANNE OF AVONLEA. . Are you joining @linesiunderline and me for the KEEP READING ANNE read along this month?🌿 . It will be a read at your own pace read along (but it conveniently has 30 chapters in case you want to break it in to chapters and enjoy it all month long). We have some discussion questions and photo challenges that we will sprinkle in throughout October. . Hope you can join in and continue L.M. Montgomery’s Anne series with us. . . . . . . . . . . . . #keepreadinganne #ciannereadsclassics #bookstagram #bookish #booklove #bookworm #ilovebooks #goodreads #literature #bibliophile #bookobsessed #bookpic #booknerd #instabook #reader #instareads #igbooks #bookaholic #readersofinstagram #girlswhoread #anneofavonlea #annestagram #lmmontgomery #tundrabooks #readwomen #currentlyreading #amreading #readalong
Yup, it's a second Anne post today! Did you know that the Anne of Green Gables series was written out of order? I think there is a striking difference in the books that were written later to 'fill in the holes' and personally prefer the earlier books. Anne's House of Dreams is a book I didn't read until last year, but it's definitely one of my favourites in the series. So many wonderful and memorable new characters. * * * #kindredspirits #childrensbooks  #classics #goodreads #lmmontgomery #anneshirley #anneofgreengables #childrensliterature #bookishcanadians #bookstagram #booksandflowers #bookish #bibliophile #bookphotography #kidlit  #booknerd #kidsbooks #booklover #booklove #reader #booknerdigans #readtundra #readthenorth #canadian #annestagram #literature

Hello, everyone. I haven't posted here in a while. I've been away social media for the most part of the last quarter for some needed break and just a lot of major life changes. Good changes, if I may add. But right now, I'm posting just to let my few but precious followers know that I'm moving all my #bookstagram #tolkientribe and middle earth adventure, and just reading related posts to my personal account @mistykaren . . .  I've followed most of you there already and I hope you'll still be there to follow my journey, may it be my reading journey or just life in general. ❤️ I won't be deactivating this account right away, maybe in a month or so, but it won't be updated after this post. . . .  I may repost some of my posts in this account, there, so you know that it's really me. Haha.  I look forward to create more conversations to many of you as we continue to share our love for reading and books. 💕 . . . . .  #mistyreads #anneofgreengables #lmmontgomery #lucymaudmontgomery #annestagram  #comingofagebooks  #bibliophile #booklover #booklovers #booksofinstagram #booksofig #books #booklove ##bookstagram #igreads  #goodbooks #goodreads #books📚
#partner @tundrabooks Happy release day to this beautiful picture book! 🌸 I first read the book as an e-copy through @netgalley several months ago and loved it, but I knew it would be even better in its physical form with the gorgeous illustrations by @genevievegodboutillustration (one of my favorites!) so I was thrilled that @tundrabooks sent me a free copy. 🌸 The illustrations pair perfectly with @kallie.george’s whimsical text to make this an ideal bedtime story.  There have been many different variations of  picture books where the character says goodnight to everything, but I think that concept is ideal for this story.  Anne is a character you know would want a chance to say an enthusiastic goodnight to everyone and everything she loves before she goes to sleep. 🌸 Are you an Anne fan?  Have you introduced the next generation to Anne yet?  My kids are too young for the full story so this was the perfect exposure for them.  When I read it with my son he asked “Is this that girl from your favorite book?” and that basically made me feel like I was winning at life 😄. My previous review of this book (and the early chapter book Anne Arrives) are on my blog (link in profile).
Happy Book Birthday @tundrabooks #partner 🎉. . “Anne Arrives” and “Goodnight, Anne” join Kelly Hill’s board books in a series from @tundrabooks designed to introduce Anne to all ages today! .

I've been spending my sick day in the company of Anne Shirley and the other characters of Avonlea, but I've been watching the Megan Follow's miniseries rather than reading. My head hurts to much to concentrate on that. Hoping tomorrow is a better day.

Thank you to @tundrabooks #partner for sending me this copy of Anne's Numbers.

These beautiful board books from @tundrabooks #partner are just amazing.  Kelly Hill did such a great job creating some of the most beloved scenes from Anne with fabric and embroidery floss so the pages look three-dimensional.  My little boys can’t keep their hands off them.  They want to pull Anne’s braids like Gilbert! 😆 I was so thankful for the opportunity to review these board books for preschoolers, along with the picture book, “Goodnight, Anne” and early reader, “Anne Arrives” — they are directly below this review in my feed if you missed them.  I think any fan of Anne of Green Gables is going to love having these books to introduce Anne to their young children, nieces, or grandkids. “Anne’s Colors” and “Anne Arrives” are my two favorites; which of these look the most interesting to you? . . . #annestagram #anneofgreengables #boardbooks #conceptbook #childrensbooks #colors #numbers #kidsbookstagram #kidlit #raisingreaders #tundrabooks #kellyhill #lmmontgomery #12daysofannestagram
#annestagram ✨ #partner ✨ Thank you SO so much to @tundrabooks for the most delightful bookish mail PR package I have ever received! Tundra understands the magic of Avonlea, and has a whole line of delightful Green Gables inspired tales to introduce wee readers to this timeless classic! Perhaps your baby can’t quite understand English yet...why not charm them with delicious high quality images of Anne-inspired fabric crafts in the board books Anne’s Colors or Anne’s Numbers in the meantime? For toddlers, the sumptuous illustrations in Kallie George and Geneviève Godbout’s Goodnight Anne are sure to delight their way to Green Gables dreamland. And for new readers, the chapter book Anne Arrives is the perfect segue into L.M. Montgomery’s volumes! Can’t wait to share more details on each throughout the week! Be sure to peruse the Tundra catalog, fellow Anne fans 📚✨ . . . . . #bookstagram #unitedbookstagram #anneofgreengables #anneofavonlea #avonlea #childrensbooks #booksforkids #kidlit #boardbook #earlyreader #reading #childrensclassics #greengables #goodnightanne #annearrives #annesnumbers #annescolors #bookcollection #bookstobuy #newbook #tundrabooks #anneshirley #annewithane #bookmagic #shelfie #bookshelf

Thank you @tundrabooks #partner for the opportunity to review this picture book, “Goodnight, Anne” #sponsored ✨💖🌙 Kallie George, who adapted “Anne of Green Gables” for young readers in “Anne Arrives”, has also written a book for 3-7 year old picture-book readers in which Anne bids a good night to all the people, places, and things she loves (and a few she doesn’t) at and around Green Gables. ✨💖🌙 The illustrations by Genevieve Godbout are soft and dreamlike.  They capture Anne’s wonder and love of the world around her.  This bedtime book will make parents feel nostalgic for the Anne they loved as children and inspire them to tell their children all about her and the wonderful world of Green Gables. ✨💖🌙 #annestagram #goodnightanne #kalliegeorge #genevievegodbout #picturebooks #childrensbooks #childrensbookillustration #bedtimebook #booklove #kidsbookstagram #anneofgreengables
Thank you to @tundrabooks #partner for sending me Goodnight, Anne. This Anne of Green Gables-inspired picture book by @kallie.george with illustrations by @genevievegodboutillustration is absolutely enchanting, and I can't wait to share it with the children in my life. I know I'll be buying copies of this to gift! * * * #kindredspirits #annewithane #childrensbooks #kalliegeorge  #classics #goodreads #lmmontgomery #booksoutofdoors #anneshirley #anneofgreengables #childrensliterature #bookishcanadians #bookstagram #booksandflowers #bookish #bibliophile #picturebook  #booknerd #kidsbooks #booklove #reader #booknerdigans #readtundra #readthenorth #canadian #annestagram
#repost @coastalwanderings with @get_repost ・・・ I brought this L.M. Montgomery book with me to New Zealand because I wanted something familiar to remind me of Eastern Canada when I knew everything would be new and strange. I thought that maybe since it helped me ease into being so far from home, it might help me adjust to the idea of returning to it in a few days. So yesterday, I pulled it out again to find this picture full of one side of the family I love. I have some mixed feelings about leaving this beautiful country and the people who have been so good to me, but knowing that I’m going home to these guys and so many others who love me is definitely helping
“Once upon a time - which, when you come to think of it, is really the only proper way to begin a story - the only way that really smacks of romance and fairyland...” 🌼🌼🌼 What a lovely beginning! “Magic for Marigold” is my LMM novel for August and I’m loving it already.  It begins with naming a new baby.  Have you read this one? 🌻🤱🏻🌻 . . #magicformarigold #lucymaudmontgomery #annestagram #tansy #currentlyreading #nowreading #babynames
