Hello lovelies. How are you? Today’s blog post is all about my review on the book Anne of Green Gables. I read this book for the first time in grade 5 and I remember really enjoying it. I since have forgotten most of the plot. I wanted to continue the series, so I decided to reread the first book. Please let me know if you have read this book and your thoughts on it. Hope you have a great day.

As soon as Anne Shirley arrives at the snug white farmhouse called Green Gables, she is sure she wants to stay forever . . . but will the Cuthberts send her back to to the orphanage? Anne knows she’s not what they expected—a skinny girl with fiery red hair and a temper to match. If only she can convince them to let her stay, she’ll try very hard not to keep rushing headlong into scrapes and blurting out the first thing that comes to her mind. Anne is not like anyone else, the Cuthberts agree; she is special—a girl with an enormous imagination. This orphan girl dreams of the day when she can call herself Anne of Green Gables.
- I loved this book.
- I loved how atmospheric it was. I have never been to P.E.I. before, but I could visualize it completely.
- Anne is such a wonderful, smart and magical little girl.
- Anne is mischievous, but she does it because she is curious.
- I loved how imaginative Anne was.
- I loved her relationship with Marilla and Matthew. It was so special.
- Anne and Diana’s friendship was beautiful to watch. They are total opposites, but that’s what makes them work.
- Gilbert is one of my new favourite love interests. He is a peach.
- I loved how the second half of the book we got to see how smart Anne was while she was at Queen’s University. She is so inspiring.
- I have no cons. This story was perfection.
