Forget the love triangle! Caleana + Nehemia = #KindredSpirits

Pickpick

A low pick. Finished last night, for the #kindredspirits discussion today. I'm glad to have read this - and reread The Story Girl - but I didn't love them. While some of the exploits were enjoyable, the charm and balance found in other Montgomery books was missing. I was annoyed by both Felicity and TSG and liked an the other kids better. Hated all the Cecily Will Die Young foreshadowing. But that scene with the Governor's wife was classic 🤣

I loved this reread. My adult mind picked up on plot elements ten year old me glossed over. I found myself loving Marilla in this novel. She became more of a person to me. Her sense of humor is dry and wry- which always makes me laugh. I love how Montgomery really developed her as a character in this novel vs. the first one.

The seasonal themes were lovely to read as well. A favorite series.

Kathleen Kelly‘s mom advised to read this with a box of Kleenex. Which I never understood until my reread of this as an adult. I cried. I cried quite a bit actually. Part nostalgia and part realizing Anne‘s predicament as a neglected orphan, escaping along with Anne in her imaginations. And then falling in love with Montgomery‘s gorgeous writing all over again. It‘s definitely one of my #bestof2021 📚

Jess_Read_This @LiteraryinLawrence 📬⌨️ It‘s probably one of my most favorite movies! Great life lessons, entertaining, sweet, funny… and about books! All of my favorite elements in a move. And Meg Ryan is so perfect in that role! 6mo
LeahBergen I just reread the series this year, too. 😭 6mo
Jess_Read_This @LeahBergen 😭 It felt like coming home for me when I reread this. There‘s not many books that do that to me. Next time we both do a reread I‘ll send you a box of kleenex too! (edited) 6mo
LeahBergen 😆😆 Thank you! 6mo

megnews I‘m looking forward to hearing your review of the Sun does Shine. It‘s been in my tbr for awhile. Also looking forward to Book of Lost Friends review. I read it and look forward to seeing what you think 8mo
ravenlee Cranberry Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holiday books! It was out of print for so long, I was ecstatic when I saw it had been rereleased! 8mo
sblbooks @megnews They both have good reviews so I'm looking forward to it. Do you ever watch YouTube videos? I wanted to read The Sun Does Shine after listening to Krista's at Books and Jams review it. 8mo
sblbooks @ravenlee Oh, that's good to know. I might have to order the hardcover, instead of just ordering the ebook. 8mo

Have we really come to the last book of our #kindredspirits readalong? What a joy it's been to revisit some and experience others for the first time. Not sure I want to give up a regular fix of LMM, so thinking I might reread some others after this. I remember loving Emily and Jane just as much as (if not more) than Anne ...

Clare-Dragonfly Oh dear, is this really the last one? For all I have disliked several of the books, I will be sad for it to end! Maybe I‘ll join you with Emily and Jane! 12mo
LeahBergen I know! I was thinking of rereading the Emily books or maybe the Pat books (I haven‘t read the latter). 12mo
quietjenn @Clare-Dragonfly I feel like it's fine really fast! I'm pretty sure I'm going to do the Emily books next. They are the ones that were my favorite at 12, but I haven't read them since then. I'll be sure to keep you in the loop, and maybe see if others are interested? 12mo

quietjenn @LeahBergen I'm definitely going to do the Emily books, then maybe just keep working through my bookshelf 😉 I only read the Pat books about five or six years ago, for the first time. According to my Goodreads comments, I was pretty lukewarm on the first, but rather liked the second one 🤷‍♀️ There are definitely some Montgomery's I don't think I I ever read, so might as well get to those, too ... 12mo
vivastory Hey Jenn, I emailed you back about the discussion. 👍 12mo
quietjenn @vivastory sorry, I just replied. All is well. 😏 12mo

Things I enjoyed about this GN: the depiction and aging of Anne (and the art in general), that it showed more of the story than it told in words, that the authors did a great job of staying true to Anne‘s evolution from girl to woman.

However, I wish that they had made each novel into a separate graphic novel rather than jamming them all into one.

I still cried when Matthew died. I always cry then. 😭

Audiobook!! So fun! A classic IMHO, Anne embodies a rare and genuine spirit-like visiting a wise and affectionate old friend💕

WOW! I need to sit with this one for a few days but wanted to give a prepublication shout out!!! Available tomorrow 1/14/20 and it‘s brilliant but exacting. Short on pages but plenty to dissect ( literally) If bodily fluids and medical procedures make you squeamish be prepared. A doctor & his young assistant are faced with a moral dilemma in this fever like dream. #NetGalley

BookwormM You had me at fever dream 😂 2y
Cinfhen Let me know what U think of this one if and when U get around to it @BookwormM 2y
BarbaraBB Sounds good! And I need a medical thriller in one of my challenges! 2y

lele1432 Sounds kind of weird, so you know I like it. 😂 And it‘s set in India!! Stacked! 2y
Cinfhen It‘s definitely weird @lele1432 but good weird not weird weird well maybe a little weird weird 😉😆I think it‘s worth reading and it‘s super short!!! 2y
Cinfhen So it‘s probably not a #MedicalThriller in the traditional way @BarbaraBB but im using it for that prompt too on #pop20 2y
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen I would too! 2y
