This isnt really the kind of book I would normally be into, but I love all the characters already so I keep on reading.

One thing I did find a bit disturbing is the casual (though probably historically acurate) animal cruelty. Anne and her housemates attempt to euthanize a cat and there are several mentions of killing animals for fun or convinience. Im not naive to the fact this happens but did not expect to find it here.

2019 read--

I remembered loving this book and then, when I started this read, remembered why. It's Phil. I rolled my eyes at Anne's stubbornness, but Phil was just darling.

New realization this time: It really gives a decent dose of nostalgia for college. I want to go back. :) ( )

L.M. Montgomery is a long time and all time favorite author of mine. She writes the perfect girls story with just the right mix of adventure, drama and happiness. I find her books a comfort to read and have re-read most of works many times over the years. They are classics for a reason and that reason is they are great. ( )

I got a little annoyed with Anne and her head in the clouds. She rejects Gilbert because he doesn't fulfill her fantasy. Than she meets a man who is everything she dreamed of - good looking, rich, a poet, who always says and does the right thing. Yet she ends up rejecting him, realizing there is no spark. She needed to go through that to grow to appreciate Gilbert. ( )

First words
"Harvest is ended and summer is gone," quoted Anne Shirley, gazing across the shorn fields dreamily.
We mustn't let next week rob us of this week's joy.
