Well, that was unexpectedly depressing. I had no idea about L.M. Montgomery‘s life. But I adore the cover and illustrations.

I always enjoy reading about my favorite author, but I thought the ending was abrupt.

I read and listened to some great books this month!My favorite fiction was The Treason of Isengard, but I really enjoyed some of the others as well, and seeing Cymbeline was fantastic! All four nonfiction books for this month were great. I took the Louisa May Alcott biography out of the running as a reread and decided I liked the biography of L.M. Montgomery just a bit more than the one about the Van Gogh brothers.

L.M. Montgomery is another of my favorite childhood authors, and I truly enjoyed this biography. She struggled with many difficult things throughout her life and this book put those into clear perspective along with her writing life. It was longer than I expected for a book promoted as a YA biography, but it seemed a thorough depiction of her life. The illustrations are also a perfect complement to the story.

I received this generous #kindlitsy gift from @Daisey 😊 I already had the book, but exchanging it gave me the opportunity to discover another L.M. Montgomery biography. Thank you so much, @Daisey ! @kindlitsy

Daisey I couldn't find it on your read list, but I'm not at all surprised you have it. Now I'll have to go look up the other one you got, since I have not heard of it. Enjoy! 13mo

I‘ve always been a fan of L.M Montgomery, but after reading her bio I feel like we are kindred spirits! It was fascinating to learn about her life; there were so many things that I never expected! The narrative is well paced and the prose is excellent. I also really loved the illustrations too.

LA_Mead @Melissa_J cool! There are some really interesting things I didn‘t know! 1y

Liz Rosenberg brought back many wonderful memories of the time I spent with Anne and several other kindred spirits growing up. In this book she gives us a window into Maud's life and the experiences that forged her writing and created the beloved Anne of Green Gables, the "perfectly imperfect girl."

"Where is heaven?" answered by a pointing towards the ceiling leads to a logical conclusion that Maud's mother was stuck in the attic, and she didn't understand why someone didn't help her out.
I remember having similar thoughts as a child when given vague answers/non-answers to seemingly simple questions (including this one). And being puzzled as to why the action required wasn't obvious to the adults!

Anne of Green Gables was one of my absolute favorite childhood characters. I loved Anne with an "e" and always wished my hair was red like hers! Found this new biography at my local library and couldn't resist checking it out even if it was in the junior reader section.

This book!!! The illustrations are five stars alone let alone the story! I did not know much about Maud Montgomery before reading this; just that I had read and loved Anne of Green Gables growing up. Now I love the books even more and need to reread! If you love Anne as much as I do I think you will love this book!

The illustrations in this book are perfection. The biography of Lucy Maud Montgomery is out now and the snippet I‘ve read I really enjoyed!

Well done #JulieMurstad, illustrator.

This was a surprise love for me. L.M. Montgomery not only wrote sweet and well-loved stories, but she had a fascinating life! Her commitment to those she loved and her work was inspiring. And the illustrations scattered throughout were perfect!

L. M. Montgomery is one of my all time favourite authors. When I heard about this new biography for young readers, I couldn‘t wait to pre-order it. And what a lovely surprise it was when it showed up in the mail yesterday! I think it will be bumped up on the TBR, I‘m so anxious to read it!

House of Dreams: The Life of L.M. Montgomery is a wonderful biography covering the important details of a brilliant writer's life. The book unfolds at a nice pace and gives a complete story rather than focusing on particulars or getting lost in insignificant details.
Thanks to Candlewick Press and #NetGalley for providing an #ARC in exchange for my honest review.
