BOOK REVIEW 📚 Marilla of Green Gables is going to be on the TBR list for every fan of Anne. Period.
This book opens with Marilla as a 13 year old girl. Naturally, being Marilla's brother, this book also provided insight into Matthew's past, as well as Marilla's good friend Rachel.
At first, I had a hard time matching the personalities of the original series to their younger counterparts in McCoy's book. That could be because it's been so long since I read the original series and instead the movies are fresh in my mind. There were some subtle, and not so subtle details that I can see helping to shape Marilla, Mathew and Rachel into the characters we know in L.M.Montgomery's books, and some that I struggled slightly with, but, people change. Once I accepted that, I allowed myself to enjoy the story for what it was: A charming coming of age story back in our beloved Avonlea.

It’s such a satisfying but lonesome feeling to finish a book that you love and fills you with such happiness. I had forgotten how much I loved this book but rereading it has brought me so many moments of simple pleasure and happy feelings. I can’t wait to continue reading Anne’s story #anneofgreengables

I can resist buying books. But not when they look like this and are by a favorite author. Do you have a favorite collection?

"Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive - it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we know all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?
But am I talking too much? People are always telling me I do. Would you rather I didn't talk? If you say so I'll stop.
I can stop when I make up my mind to it, although it's difficult."
- L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables 💛
“Oh, it's delightful to have ambitions. I'm so glad I have such a lot. And there never seems to be any end to them-- that's the best of it. Just as soon as you attain to one ambition you see another one glittering higher up still. It does make life so interesting”
I just finished watching season 2 of Anne with an E yesterday and it was SO GOOD.
