There are many wonderful characters in literature. However, not one of them is as singular and fantastic as Anne Shirley.

“There‘s such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that is why I‘m such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn‘t be half so interesting.”

In elementary school, this was the book that I checked out from the library again & again. And yet I could not remember any of it! So I decided to reread & I can definitely see why I was so enamored with Anne & her fascinating imagination. Her outlook on the world & pure optimism (even when in the depths of despair) are uplifting, & her flair for the dramatic is charming. Little eight year old me would have dreamed of being her kindred spirit

peanutnine This audiobook read by Rachel McAdams was really fun to listen to, Rachel had the best tone to capture all the characters' quirks #MiddleGradeMarch @sblbooks 3mo

“Isn‘t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet.” If there is one fictional character that I relate with and love above all others, it would most definitely be Anne. This is easily one of my favorite books and its lessons have a very special place in my heart. That life, no matter how hard it may be, is as beautiful as you choose to see it as and that the people you love are the truest richest of life. #52challenge

This is my third time reading this and I love it more for every read. The last time so read it, I decided that I needed my own copy and this is it.

What I love is Anne‘s positivity despite everything and how she loves all the seasons and month. I also love Anne and Matthew‘s relationship.

‘I‘m so sorry for people who live in lands where there are no Mayflowers,‘ said Anne. ‘Diana says perhaps they have something better, but there couldn‘t be anything better than Mayflowers, could there, Marilla? And Diana says if they don‘t know what they are like they don‘t miss them. But I think that is the saddest thing of all. I think it would be tragic, Marilla, not to know what Mayflowers are and like not to miss them.

Gilbert Blythe was trying to make Anne Shirley look at him and failing utterly, because Anne was at that moment totally oblivious, not only of the very existence of Gilbert Blythe, but of every other scholar in Avonlea school
[…]
Gilbert Blythe wasn‘t used to putting himself out to make a girl look at him and meeting with failure. She should look at him
[…]
Gilbert reached across the aisle, picked up the end of Anne‘s long red braid,

AnneCecilie held it out at arm‘s length, and said in a piercing whisper: ‘Carrots! Carrots!‘ Then Anne looked at him with vengeance! She did more than look. She sprang to her feet, her bright fancies fallen into cureless ruin. 8mo

Thank you for the tag @julieclair !

For this #TLT I thought of a few of my favorite literary representations in the cinema:
1. Megan Follows as Anne
2. William Powell/Myrna Loy as Mr. & Mrs. Charles (again, must be on this list!)
3. Alicia Silverstone as Cher (Emma)
Bonuses - Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Malcom 😍 & Mos Def as Ford Prefect 👍

Would you like to play? @Kimberlone @Aimeesue @Bookwormjillk

dabbe 1. She was delightful as Anne!
2. Nick, Nora, and Asta!
3. Her best role (IMHO).

Revisited Green Gables for the first time in probably 25 years, alternating between audiobook and this gorgeous version (a Christmas gift from 1992).

It was as charming as I remembered, complete with the intense pangs of second-hand embarrassment and the ongoing (fond) exasperation at Anne‘s obliviousness to Gilbert‘s adoration.

Followed it up with the classic 1985 TV film/miniseries— one of the best adaptations ever. 🧡💛💚

Mrs. Rachel Lynde lived just where the Avonlea main road dipped down into a little hollow, fringed with alders and ladies‘ ears, and traversed by a brook that had its source away back in the woods of the old Cuthbert place; it was reputed to be an intricate, headlong brook in it‘s earlier course through these woods, with dark secrets of pool and cascade; but by the time it reached Lynde‘s hollow it was a quiet, well-conducted little stream,

IndoorDame for not even a brook could run past Mrs. Rachel Lynde‘s window without due regard for decency and decorum; it was probably conscious that Mrs. Rachael was sitting at her window, keeping a sharp eye on everything that passed from brooks and children up, and that if she noticed anything odd or out of place she would never rest until she had ferreted it out the whys and wherefores thereof. #FirstLineFridays @ShyBookOwl 1y

While searching for a book in my home library to complete the #booked2022 prompt for #setinacanadianprovince, I was giving up hope,until I realized that this book would work! The story of Anne warmed my heart and soothed my soul. I read this as a young girl after my mother gave it to me for Christmas. Reading it again,I realized that she must have chosen it, not only for the wonderful story, but also because of the character, DIana. #kindredspirit

2022 edit - What is there really to add? It's a book that retains its magic read after read. 5 stars

>>>
Brother and sister, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, decide to adopt a boy to help on the farm. The message gets muddled and they end up with a daydreaming, intelligent red-headed whirlwind named Anne. 5🌟

I also love the TV adaptation with Megan Follows as Anne - I may even admit to a girlhood crush on Gilbert Blythe.

Sparklemn I love that description of Anne. 🙂 2y

For this reread, I listened to an audio version. The CBC mini-series from the mid-80s with Megan Follows is one of my all-time favourite movies. Because of that, I was unable to picture anything else but the characters in that movie. But that‘s ok by me. The book had a few additional happenings that they didn‘t put in the movie and the movie expanded on some of the happenings in the book. I don‘t know how anyone could not help but love Anne.

I found this fascinating—an article on why Anne of Green Gables was banned in Soviet-controlled Poland: https://www.transpositions.co.uk/banning-anne-why-the-soviets-were-afraid-of-ann...

I love the idea that Anne inspired hope and resistance against an authoritarian regime. 👩🏻‍🦰💚 A couple of quotes in the comments! ⤵️ #KindredSpiritsBuddyRead

BarbaraJean “If you were compiling a list of novels banned for being dangerous and encouraging dissent, Lucy Maud Montgomery‘s charming children‘s classic Anne of Green Gables might not seem an obvious choice. Yet for several years during the Soviet control of Poland, Montgomery‘s novel was banned as a ‘subversive‘ book that was feared by the authoritarian regime because it was seen as inspiring hope and resistance to authority.” 2y
BarbaraJean “…the authorities banned the book when they realised its importance to the Polish resistance effort. But copies produced by the dissident samizdat press continued to circulate. By drawing on the collective resource of individually memorised passages and preserved pages, the defiant samizdat movement was able to continue to distribute illegal copies of the cherished book.” Reminds me of Fahrenheit 451! 2y

But I couldn‘t think of a better series of books to read when times are tough and you need a distraction, and the best way I can describe it is reading these books is like wrapping yourself in a warm blanket in front of the fire with steaming hot chocolate (if you like that sort of thing). It makes you feel cozy and safe. So glad we‘re reading all of her books now! I needed it. ❤️ 2y
