I’m not quite sure why I never read Anne of Green Gables as a kid, but I’ve always been interested in the story.
I read this at exactly the right time – I recently read quite a few disturbing, unsettling books and was in desperate need of something light and cozy.
I didn’t expect to fall in love – with Anne, with Avonlea, with the Cuthberts – everything about this book was lovely.
You can tell that the book is suitable for younger readers, but it didn’t feel like a “children’s” book. I’m excited to read the rest of the series!
