Pat of Silver Bush
Pat of Silver Bush | L.M. Montgomery
There's no place like home Do fairies really come for the dish of milk we leave them? Is Mrs. McClenahan really a witch? How is it possible to find a new baby in a bed of parsley? These are all questions Pat Gardiner wants to know. And it seems her Irish housekeeper, the incomparable Judy Plum, always has an answer... For Pat, there is no place more magical on earth than her home of Silver Bush, with its majestic birch trees and enchanting gardens. If it were up to her, nothing there would ever change. But of course if nothing changed, she'd never get a new baby sister, see her Aunt Hazel's wedding, or meet the only boy who truly understands her. Yes, there is change coming for Patsome of it joyous and some of it heartbreaking. But no matter what, he favorite house in the world will always be waiting for her... What Readers are Saying: "I love this book! It's laugh-out-loud funny and a very charming story." "The Pat books are right up there with the Anne series at the top of Montgomery's list of works." "Pat is a lovely character, and her affection for home and family was delightful." "I thoroughly enjoyed it."

Currently reading for the #KindredSpiritsBuddyRead.

(And I‘m a bit surprised that I never got to this one as a kid).

batsy Cover love, as always! 😍 I, too, have yet to read this. 4d
LeahBergen @batsy I like the hot pink of her dress against the yellow. 😆 4d
BarbaraJean I do *not* picture Pat as a hot pink kinda gal. 😆 3d

#WeeklyForecast

Continue the tagged #KindredSpiritsBuddyRead and Minor Feelings #SheSaid

Continue A Summer with Proust.

Finish Either/Or #CampLitsy and read as much as possible of The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle #BookSpin. This will be my first Murakami and I have no idea if this is a good place to start.

Cinfhen I haven‘t read Murakami either although I have tried a few times but never get past the first few pages 🤷🏼‍♀️ 6d
Cinfhen Good luck 🍀 6d
AnneCecilie @Cinfhen Thanks. That doesn‘t sound too promising. Hopefully I manage to read a few more pages. (edited) 6d
Hanna-B I adore Murakami, this was my first 5d
AnneCecilie @Hanna-B Then it sounds like a good place to start. 5d

Started the tagged book #KindredSpiritsBuddyRead and Minor Feelings #SheSaid

I finished The Accidental, and read both Dogs of Summer and Things Are Against Us.

I‘m currently reading Either/ Or #CampLitsy

Cinfhen What did you think of the Ellmann?? 7d
AnneCecilie @Cinfhen I loved it, but then again I‘m a feminist who loves to read about how men/ patriarchy is to blame for everything wrong in this world. She does it with some snark too, and she really lets Trump have it. 5d
Cinfhen Perfect answer 👍🏽💕 5d

Pat had a firm belief that if you could only open the door of any shut room quickly enough you would catch all the furniture in strange situations. The chairs crowded together talking, the table lifting its white muslin skirts to show its pink sateen petticoat, the fire shovel and tongs dancing a fandango by themselves. But then you never could. Some sound always warned them and they were back in their places as demure as you please.

batsy I kinda love this quote, but also a tiny bit terrified since it makes me think of Poltergeist 😱😅 7d
AnneCecilie @batsy That didn‘t cross my mind at all. I guess I recognised this, since I thought so as a kid too and also that the animals would talk amongst themselves as well. 5d

Next up for the #KindredSpiritsBuddyRead: Pat of Silver Bush and Mistress Pat. I first read these in 2020–they were such lovely comfort reads that I decided I needed to re-read Anne… and thus the #KindredSpiritsBuddyRead was born. 😊 I‘m looking forward to re-reading even though it hasn‘t been that long!

All are welcome to join in—we‘ll discuss Pat on August 28th & Mistress Pat on Sept. 24. Let me know if you‘re not tagged & would like to be!

lauraisntwilder My copies are on their way. Can you add me? Thank you! 2w

Cinfhen Is that a new Lucy Ellmann???? It looks so slim compared to Ducks 🦆😉 2w
AnneCecilie @Cinfhen It‘s an essay collection that came out last year, but I haven‘t seen it in the bookstores around me until now. And it is slim, not even 200 p 2w
squirrelbrain I have the Ellmann on my physical TBR shelf… just never seem to get to it. (Isn‘t that always the case?!) 2w

This was lovely & homey—such a comfort read. I haven‘t read this series before, and although Valancy, Emily, and Anne will always be at the top of my list of L.M. Montgomery heroines, Pat is still a dear little soul, enamored by beauty and the delights of home & family. And during these days where there is so much uncertainty & change, Pat‘s almost obsessive desire for everything in her idyllic world to stay exactly the same felt very relatable!

BarbaraJean Well, I have to add that it would be nice to have an idyllic world where I want everything to stay the same.If I lived in the homey Silver Bush farm, with the Hill of the Mist out the window, adorable kittens in the barn, and a cozy kitchen with Judy Plum preparing me a “liddle bite” before bed, I wouldn‘t want anything to change, either! 2y
LeahBergen Look at all those lovely LM Montgomerys ❤️❤️ 2y

Not my favourite Montgomery series by any means, but interesting for it's oddity. Anyone read it? It sort of feels like she has given up on the genre. (Or on romance.) But I do have this pretty matching set!

rubyslippersreads I read them years ago. If I remember correctly, they were a little too “twee.” 2y
Chrissyreadit I‘m not sure how I never knew about these! 2y
jewright I have read them, but it‘s been a while. L. M. Montgomery is my favorite author. I‘ve loved her since first discovering Anne in second grade. 2y

merelybookish @rubyslippersreads I don't know that anyone falls in love with Pat like they do Anne and Emily. 2y
merelybookish @Chrissyreadit They aren't her best work. And I think they might be her last few novels. 2y
merelybookish @jewright I love Montgomery too! 2y
LeahBergen I have them but I haven‘t read them. 😆 2y
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen @jewright This discussion is making me want reread them. 2y
merelybookish @rubyslippersreads Are you suggesting a buddy read? 2y

“Judy, it‘s dreadful that cats can‘t live as long as we do,” sighed Pat. “You just have time to get so fond of them and they die.” 😭😭😭 #24in48

The Pat of Silver Bush books are 99 cents on Kindle today! So excited as I have been looking for mine the last few months and couldn‘t find them. I love these books. I love Anne but I really, really love Emily and Pat. Both series are 99 cents!

Earlene They are wonderful books. I have my mother's copy and inside is the name of a cousin and it is dated January 9, 1936. We think the original owner would have been in her early twenties. My mother isn't sure how she ended up with it but she has had it a long time. 5y
