    Now this is the college life I longed forAnne Shirley is about to do the unthinkable postpone marriage and attend off to Redmond College She still plans to get married, but only after her education.She s found a darling house to rent with Prissy Grant from Avonlea and Phillipa Gordon from Redmond And now, her life will begin.I loved the feel of this one the hopeful wondering, the exciting change of scenery and the true friendships she finds However I do have a few issues with the way this one is written It almost feels like everything is solved too simply All challenges are overcome with a bit of plucky effort and everything always works out just the way it needs to Always And honestly, the first two novels I didn t mind thisbut by the third novel of such coincidences, I am starting to grow a little tired of the sheer perfection of everything It will come sometime Some beautiful morning she will just wake up and find it is Tomorrow Not Today but Tomorrow And then things will happen wonderful things I still enjoy this series but there are a few problems inconsistencies that are really throwing me off Dropping Diana Barry like a hot tamale Remember Diana Barry Anne s one, true bosom friend Kindred spirits alone do not change with the changing years. Anne is such a liar Diana Barry who was so essential to the first books is pushed aside now that Anne s in college and Diana s raising a family I understand that friends grow apart over time but if that was the case, there should be a paragraph or two explaining that It s likeDiana was no longer useful to the plot so L M Montgomery just stopped writing about her I mean, how hard would it be for Anne to write a few letters to Diana or for her to talk about missing her.I feel so betrayed on Diana s behalf So much for friendship The Schrodinger Cat And I couldn t have been the only one completely flabbergasted by the cat story Upon discovery of a semi friendly tom cat, Anne, Prissy and Phillipa decide to kill it with chloroform under a basket After leaving the cat under the deathtrap for a night, Anne lifts up the basket only to discover that the cat survived She then adopts the cat and becomes best friends with the feline You almost MURDERED the cat seriously, what the hell Anne The Revolving Plot There seems to be a pattern to these books Anne meets new bosom friends, one grumpy ornery one and one miserable one due to bad luck with true love.Anne befriends the grump, tries and ultimately fails meddling in the miserable one s lifeThen she learns valuable life lessons about not judging meddling someone by their first impression And everything ends happy.Repeat Concluding Thoughts Honestly, I m than a little disappointed by this one but not enough to stop the series There were plenty of wonderful of moments and I really want to finish the series Hopefully it picks up Audiobook CommentsRead by Ren e Raudman and it was a rather pleasant audio to listen to.Blog Instagram Twitter

    I know a lot of people are still waiting for their Hogwarts letter, and that s fine and all, but I m still over here waiting for my formal invitation to attend college with Anne and Gilbert and Philippa and the gang.I m sure it just got lost in the mail.I adored Anne of Green Gables in spite of the fact that I read it for the first time at 21 years old, on a whim, having no intention of reading it beforehand and, in fact, only having a copy at all because it was very pretty and I m very book shallow Against all odds, I loved Anne of Avonlea just as much.And even unlikely ly, I loved Anne of the Island most of all So far The writing is beautiful The settings are immersive The storyline s are charming And somehow all the characters are lovely, regardless of whether they ve been there since the beginning or were just introduced two pages ago I love all of them.So you understand my confusion at the fact that I have not yet been invited to Prince Edward Island, let alone accepted to Redmond College, LET ALONE inducted into Anne s friend group.But like I said, I m sure it s just a matter of time I love this series way too much to consider the alternative Bottom line GIVE ME THE NEXT ANNE BOOK Please i was late for work because i physically could not put this book to come 5 stars hello i would like to live inside these books and be best friends with anne and also be of the island thank you that is all

    My sentimental favorite of the Anne series I always thought college was going to be just like that my best friends, a cute little house in a great neighborhood, and my childhood friend, madly in love with me Anne is one of my favorite literary heroines, and I liked her transition between girlhood and adulthood She s grown out of classic Anne of Green Gables, but she s still the same person.I must have read this book 30 times, and it never gets any less fun It s one of my top 5 comfort books.

    Ah comfort food in the form of a book.After an eventful summer, changes are in store for Anne as she prepares to leave Avonlea for Redmond College.Anne dressed in the cheerless gray dawn, for an early start was necessary to catch the boat train she struggled against the tears that would well up in her eyes in spite of herself She was leaving the home that was so dear to her, and something told her that she was leaving it forever, same as a holiday refuge Things would never be the same again coming back for vacations would not be living there And oh, how dear and beloved everything was that little white porch room, sacred to the dreams of girlhood, the old Snow Queen at the window, the brook in the hollow, the Dryad s Bubble, the Haunted Wood, and Lover s Lane all the thousand and one dear spots where memories of the old years bided Could she ever be really happy anywhere else But, there are new friends to meet and challenges to conquer Leaving home may bring heartache, but there is plenty of joy in store for our Anne.This book covers four eventful years in Anne s life, including the hilarious circumstances surrounding the publication of her first short story, the death of an old schoolmate, and the marriage of another Anne herself receives some mighty strange marriage proposals This is my favorite Yeh re a likely looking girl and hev a right smart way o stepping, said Sam I don t want no lazy woman Think it over I won t change my mind yit awhile Wall, I must be gitting Gotter milk the cows This makes my husband s proposal of You re sturdy enough for farm chores seem almost romantic At least he didn t skedaddle off to feel up a bunch of cow s udders.

    Montgomery, L.M 1915 Anne of the Island Harvest is ended and summer is gone, quoted Anne Shirley, gazing across the shorn fields dreamily.I don t know if there are enough words to describe how I feel about Anne of the Island It is one of the most magically, wonderful, giddy making, purely delightful, satisfying books I ve ever readand rereadand reread Reading this book makes all the world seem right At least during the reading process It picks up shortly after where Anne of Avonlea leaves off Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe are preparing to go off to Redmond college Along with Charlie Sloane and Priscilla Grant who you may or may not remember Diana Barry is engaged to Fred Wright And there is a hint of love in the air.This is the story of Anne s college years it spans four years The books focus on her friendships with Priscilla Grant, Philippa Gordon, and Stella Maynard, her roommates And of course the book focuses on her romantic and not so romantic dealings with men Many men propose to Anne during the course of the book including Billy Andrews who sends his sister in his place and Sam Toliver with his bumbling, Will yeh heve me Charlie Sloane, Gilbert Blythe, and Royal Gardner are others There are many side stories in Anne of The Island And while these little asides and tangents are not employed much in modern fiction, within the works of L.M Montgomery, they are so thoroughly charming that they just work well Really really well.I loved this one Loved the romance Loved the characters Loved everything.Here s my favorite bit of the book There is a book of Revelation in every one s life, as there is in the Bible Anne read hers that bitter night, as she kept her agonized vigil through the hours of storm and darkness She loved Gilbert had always loved him She knew that now She knew that she could no cast him out of her life without agony than she could have cut off her right hand and cast it from her And the knowledge had come too late too late even for the bitter solace of being with him at the last If she had not been so blind so foolish she would have had the right to go to him now But he would never know that she loved him he would go away from this life thinking that she did not care Oh, the black years of emptiness stretching before her She could not live through them she could not She cowered down by her window and wished, for the first time in her gay young life, that she could die, too If Gilbert went away from her, without one word or sign or message, she could not live Nothing was of any value without him She belonged to him and he to her In her hour of supreme agony she had no doubt of that He did not love Christine Stuart never had loved Christine Stuart Oh, what a fool she had been not to realize what the bond was that had held her to Gilbert to think that the flattered fancy she had felt for Roy Gardner had been love And now she must pay for her folly as for a crime 237 Becky Laney of Becky s Book Reviews

    In imagination she sailed over storied seas that wash the distant shining shores of faery lands forlorn, where lost Atlantis and Elysium lie, with the evening star for pilor, to the land of Hearts Desire And she was richer in those dreams than in realities for things seen pass away, but the things that are unseen are eternal Dear Lucy Maud,Thank you.Love,Jo.Dear Manchester,Anne says hi.Hope you re well.Jo.Gilbert, Censored Always,J.Mrs Gardner, You called your son Royal ROYAL What is wrong with you Yours Truly,J.Williamschokengtitiktitikchokeng Tell him I say HA.
