The Landscapes of Anne of Green Gables
The Landscapes of Anne of Green Gables: The Enchanting Island that Inspired L. M. Montgomery | Catherine Reid
27 posts | 16 read | 32 to read
Anne of Green Gables is a worldwide phenomenon that has sold over fifty million copies and inspired numerous films, plays, musicals, and television series. It has turned Prince Edward Island into a multimillion-dollar tourist destination visited by hundreds of thousands of people each year. In The Landscapes of Anne of Green Gables, Catherine Reid reveals how Lucy Maud Montgomerys deep connection to the landscape inspired her to write Anne of Green Gables. From the Lake of Shining Waters and the Haunted Wood to Lovers Lane, readers will be immersed in the real places immortalized in the novel. Using Montgomerys journals, archives, and scrapbooks, Reid explores the many similarities between Montgomery and her unforgettable heroine, Anne Shirley. The lush package includes Montgomerys hand-colorized photographs, the illustrations originally used in Anne of Green Gables, and contemporary and historical photography.

I think, book people are the best friends a reader can have. Look at these gorgeous books @scripturient @ju.ca.no and @Moony gifted me for Christmas. 💓💓💓
And even some of my 'non'book friends bought me books. Look at the huge Sherlock Holmes edition for example, I feel so happy. 💓💓💓

I enjoyed this book about PEI. Half pictures, half words, this book explores the scenery that inspired L.M. Montgomery. The writing was a little repetitive and clunky for my taste. And I wish there had been a little more about LMM‘s life, but overall this is a great gift book for any Anne lover.

Thank you to @TheBookHippie for gifting me this lovely book in a swap. 💚

TheBookHippie I‘m glad the pictures were good!!! Yay!!! 4mo

If you‘re a kindred spirit you need to check out this book. It is part biography of Maud, part examination of Anne, part travelogue of PEI. The photos are wonderful. I want to book my flight now! #readwomen #librarybook

A lovely homage to LM Montgomery and Anne and the world that inspired her. 💕

CouronneDhiver This one makes sense because Anne‘s story is set in the Maritimes. 💚 But, yes, weirdly specific 1y
JSW This is a gorgeous book! Better for a kindle fire or iPad - you want it in color. 👍🏼 1y

This popped up in my library search while I was looking for something else. So I figured it was destiny and I requested it. 😂 These kinds of books are so soothing to me. I nearly ran out of spoons this week, just doing “normal” stuff, and I haven‘t felt like reading since I lost my reading buddy, so I‘m hoping a gentle browse and a restful weekend will help me mend. ❤️

Bradleygirl Aww nice I've been trying to locate this one. 1y

Mini haul. Kent Haruf is my favorite author at the moment and I‘ve had my eye on the Green Gables book for awhile.

zsuzsanna_reads I love Haruf's writing. 1y
Kimbono @zsuzsanna_reads Me too. I‘ll be sad when I finish reading all of his books. 1y

My love of writing was kindled properly by Emily of New Moon and I loved visiting that scenery for the first time in this book. A scenery I've inhabited on page at least once a year since I was 8.

Centique I love that people revisit their favourite books like this. I‘m a huge AOGG fan but I never read Emily of New Moon. I must do that soon. Reading middle grade as an adult is pretty sweet ☺️ 2y

Oh what a beautiful book! It‘s charming and insightful, and such a great perspective. I‘ve been paving through a chapter a night for a week. I love it so much I made it my staff pick at Porter Square Books!

As spring transitions into summer, I always get in the mood for books that will transport me somewhere. The last little while, I‘ve been indulging in this glorious book about the landscapes of Anne of Green Gables. Without fail Montgomery‘s novels remind me of everything that‘s quintessentially tied to the passing of seasons. And I usually find that I‘ll pick up at least one of her books each year to escape into the beauty of her world.

First #NetGalleyTBRAttack read completed! Thanks to Timber Press & NetGalley for the chance to read this.

Anne fans...you have to read this! I loved this book. Reid shows the similarities between Montgomery and Anne through their adoration of nature and landscape. Filled with breathtaking photography, I wish I could pack a bag and leave for PEI. Montgomery, her books, and PEI came to life for me in these pages. So good!

If I remember correctly, the #NetGalleyTBRAttack starts tomorrow. In preparation, I kind of planned out what to read (and requested some more too!). This will be first up, as my download will expire soon.

This challenge be something to look forward to after work each night this coming week!

Melissa_J I‘m heading to PEI this summer and will be staying very close to Green Gables 😊. I‘ve been several times already, but PEI‘s beauty never fails to amaze me. 2y
Librarybelle @Melissa_J PEI is on my bucket list to visit. I‘d love to visit Green Gables and honestly the entire island! 2y

I can‘t get over how much I loved this book—I picked it up and thought I‘d read just the first couple paragraphs but couldn‘t put it down! It brings together snippets from Montgomery‘s books, the illustrations from Anne of Green Gables, Montgomery‘s personal journals, and colorful photography of lush Prince Edward Island. Beautiful to touch and read! Truly wonderful!

This book is a must read for any Lucy Maud Montgomery fan. It is chock full of beautiful photos and interesting information about Prince Edward Island. I liked the way the author entwined Montgomery‘s own life and words in this book. Loved it.

I took a few weeks hiatus from reading &came back to finish this lovely book of picturesque settings &glimpses into the past.

This would make a stunning coffee table book. Filled with nostalgia, gorgeous pictures, & a brief then and now about Prince Edwards Islands, The Landscape of Anne of Green Gables was idyllic &perfect for a peaceful afternoon read.

The parallels between Montgomery's &Anne's disposition &surroundings were great too.

erzascarletbookgasm This sounds lovely 2y
Kristy_K @erzascarletbookgasm It was! I highly recommend for fans of Anne of Green Gable. It's the perfect companion to the series. 2y
