Emily of New Moon
Emily of New Moon: A Virago Modern Classic | L. M. Montgomery
Emily Starr has never known what it is to be unloved. But when her father dies, she is left in the care of her mother's family. Emily is a stranger to the proud Murrays, none of whom think they can cope with such a heartbroken, headstrong girl. They decide to draw lots for her, and Emily is sent to live at New Moon with stern Aunt Elizabeth, the head of the clan. Kind Aunt Laura and friendly, eccentric Cousin Jimmy also live at New Moon, though, so she is not without hope.Emily is enchanted by New Moon, but cannot believe she will ever belong there. With her lively imagination and dreams of being a famous writer, she seems to have a talent for scandalising her family. Before long, though, she has made firm friends: Ilse, a tomboy with a blazing temper, Teddy, an aspiring artist, and Perry, the ambitious houseboy. She brings so much life to New Moon, perhaps one day even Aunt Elizabeth will consider herself lucky to have 'won' Emily.

“Today road is by the brook and we call it that because it is lovely now. ..........The tomorrow road is just a tiny path in the maple clearing and we call it that because it is going to be lovely someday, when the maples grow bigger “

What a fantastic idea😀 Half way through this book.

I feel like I'm home while reading. I had forgotten about Emily's imagination - Wind Woman. I'm reading with my 8 year old so it will be a slow read, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. My favorite LM Montgomery was Jane of Lantern Hill. Thanks @TheBookHippie @GingerAntics

#PorchReading #65degreesinJanuary
My husband & I enjoyed coffee on the porch this morning, then I read out there later in the day. Cannot recall ever reading out on the porch in winter! 65 degrees. The sky vacillated between blue skies and clouds all day.
Yes there is global warming.

LeahBergen How lovely! 6d

#BookReport #January11
#ATreeGrowsinBrooklynBuddyRead- never got to it this week. Thinking I will not finish this in January.
#audio- DoctorDeath. Enjoyed the characters, the information about forensic science emerging as a field, bizarre but compelling mystery.
#audio- Death of Riley- ch16 of 28. Another compelling female protagonist.
#childrensclassicread- started Emily this morning.
#CopperCountyRead - went beyond goal. On p, 172.

Read for #childrensclassicread2020 E for Emily for #LitsyAtoZ
Enjoyed this story about Emily Starr who has to live with her mother‘s relatives at Noon Moon farm after she becomes an orphan. Emily grows as a person in 2 years, while wrestling with her creativity, her independent streak, her friendships with humans and animals, and her memories. The descriptions of nature are gorgeous and Emily‘s emotional conditions are realistic.

Loved this wonderful book, which according to my e-book blurb about author is somewhat autobiographical. Wish I had discovered it as a child, but glad to read along with #childrensclassicread2020. @TheBookHippie

rubyslippersreads I haven‘t watched the TV series, but I picture Emily as being much more ethereal than this. 😊 2w

#ChildrensClassicRead2020 January selection

Read A Long with me 💜💜💜
I post randomly and at the end of the month.
I read these selections in the mornings with coffee for about 10-15 minutes (sometimes 20) before I start the day. It‘s been life changing and sets the tone.

Carolyn11215 @TheBookHippie this sounds amazing! Could you tag me so I can join in when possible?? 4w

1. Living: Neil Gaiman
Dead: L.M. Montgomery

2. Neil: how in the world did you come up with The Graveyard Book? It is my nieces and my favorite book to read together.
Lucy: are you more like Anne or Emily?? I love them both!! Thank you for my kindred spirits.

3. More books than I can count!

TheLibrarian 💕 Neil. He‘d be my pick. 2mo
Lifeisasnap @TheLibrarian what would you ask him? 2mo
Scochrane26 Love both these authors. 2mo
TheLibrarian @Lifeisasnap Knowing me I‘d be too speechless and awkward to ask him an actual question. But if I could talk it would probably be a question related to Sandman. 2mo
