“There’s such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that is why I’m such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so muchmore comfortable, but then it wouldn’t be half so interesting.”


Where do I begin with Anne of Green Gables? If there was a book I would read over and over again, this would be it. Whether I’m sad, angry, happy, or generally in any kind of mood, I would read it. Simply put, Anne of Green Gables is a book that brings me comfort.

I first read Anne of Green Gables 5 years ago, on Wattpad and I remember pouring over that book in the middle of the night, page by page until I finished it within a day, rather, night. Shortly after I got an ebook version which I read just as fast, so when I got the physical copy years later *read 2017* I couldn’t help but buy it. And that is how my 3rd reread of Anne of Green Gables happened.


Anne (with an ‘e’) is such a lovable character with a wide imagination in her adventures, both in her head and around Green Gables/ Avonlea. Every single time I have read this book I fall in love with it all over again. Anne’s friendship with Diana is so pure and definitely one for the books. Watching Anne grow under the care of Marilla and Mathew is an experience in itself, one that I can’t put into words.

Gilbert Blythe. That is all.

“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 interesting.” 

Basically what I am trying to say (and hopefully not failing) is I love this book so much and I highly recommend.
