One of my reading goals for the year was to re-read the Anne series. โœ”๏ธFinished!  I was a teen when I read them before.  There is so much for an adult to more deeply appreciate in these books.  Tough topics such as the death of a baby or a grown son in the war.  Yet the books are also filled with humor!  Have you ever read the whole series? ๐Ÿ“š . . . #12daysofannestagram #anneofgreengables #lmmontgomery #bookstagram #bookish #bookworm
I’m pretty certain that everyone on Earth knows how much I love this book. This was my first time ever listening to it in audiobook format. It was recommended by @molliereads. I’m sending a huge thank you to her. It was an entirely new experience. . I’ve come to realize as I’ve gotten older that there exists, for each person, what I would call necessary books. Books that you need to have on hand at all times, that get you through things, that help you, that teach you, that you can’t be without. Little Women has always been mine. This time around, I’ve learned that Anne of Green Gables is too. . I have laughed, I have cried (So. Many. Times.๐Ÿ˜‚). I have fallen again for this whimsical child who can look the bleakness of life in the face and imagine it better. Who can open up to the goodness and light of people when they show her true kindness. Who can make mistakes and learn from them and grow from them. Who tells us that “Next to trying and winning, the best thing is trying and failing,” because she understands that the point is to try. Who touched the lives of everyone she met in the most wonderful way. . I learn something every time I read it; it helps me in some way. This time I needed to remember that hope is always present. You just have to learn how to see it. Keep the eyes of your youth, and remember the time when nothing seemed all that bad because the next day was a new one, with fun, sorrow, and lessons all it’s own. Even in times of deepest sorry, there are so many things to appreciate. . Everyone should read this book. Men, women, children, old or young. There is something for everyone, and so many kindred spirits to find if we only just can see them. . Rachel McAdams does an amazing job. She understands Anne so well, and manages to capture her spirit, her liveliness, her whole essence. I loved listening to her. . This book, as always, gets ALL the stars. . QOTD: What are some books you consider necessary? . . #readwhatyouown
I pack too many books when I leave town. It’s a struggle, albeit a silly one. These three made the cut, but only because the wise husband I live with talked me out of packing more. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ“š (The overhead bin agreed with him.) I settled on Anne with an E, a non-fiction Madeleine, and one of my favorite devotional books.  #10thingstotellyou
I finally completed the @sourcebooks collection!!!!! Words cannot express how much I love it. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ #anneforever . . #bookstagram #igreads #bookcollector #anneofgreengables #12daysofannestagram #lmmontgomery #beautifulbooks
That look he’s giving her. Do you remember the first day they met? Gil certainly never forgot it. Their “meet cute” could not have gone worse . . . or been more dramatic, which is perfect for Anne Shirley. She always wanted something romantic to happen to her, and she didn’t know it already had. ๐Ÿƒ What do you love most about young Gilbert? ๐Ÿƒ ๐Ÿƒ ๐Ÿƒ #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #booklife #booklover #bibliophile #carpelibrum #bookworm #reading #amreading #booknerd #readallthebooks #unitedbookstagram #bookclub #kindredspiritbooks #amreading #christianwomen #booklove #bookblog #booknerd #bookaholic #truelove #lmmontgomery #literary #anneshirley #anneofgreengables #annewithanereadalong2018 #classicbooks #12daysofannestagram #gilbertblythe #annewithane
My favorite things about this mug: 1) The blues on this mug are divinely beautiful in person. 2) It features not one, but THREE delicious Anne quotes. 3) It is microwave and dishwasher safe (don’t hand wash it unless you just want to spend more time looking at it!). โ˜•๏ธ P.S. All the mugs I’ve ever sold are microwave/dishwasher safe. It came to my attention a while back that a few of you were hand-washing yours, and I just want to say: I’m sorry for the time that was lost. โ˜•๏ธ But throw it in the dishwasher tonight. Well, okay, maybe don’t THROW it.
I really needed another copy of Anne of Green Gables. I really, really need this book. And I didn't have to pay international shopping! And it was on special! And I've seen photos of this edition And wanted a copy! And I really needed to buy this book. We are NOT buying ANY books while we're here. We are NOT filling our suitcases with heavy books. But this book  doesn't really count because it was super cheap and pretty and essential! ...... #anneofgreengables #12daysofannestagram #favoritebook #favouritebook #ilovebooks #ilovereading #selfcare #essentialread
Thank you to @penguinclassics for sending me their new edition of #anneofgreengables a while back.  They noticed the #12daysofannestagram, the all Anne posting challenge I cohosted with @carrottoppapershop in June. Now THAT was some fun #bookstagram ing  Don't miss tonight's discussion of our FAVORITE book tonight on the Kindred Spirit Club's facebook page.  I don't think I ever properly posted about this edition, though. It's got lovely thick paper and inner flaps that double as bookmarks, with Matthew and Marilla, Gilbert and Diana adorning them! Really so appealing!  We know the book is magnificent, and this cover is a fresh, effervescent, and modern enhancement.  Plus! A wonderful new introduction by author J. Courtney Sullivan. I love hearing insights from other Anne fans.  What do you think about this cover?  #lucymaudmontgomery  #bookcollection  #bookcoverdesign  #bookishlife
What an absolute beauty! ๐ŸŒผ@zoehdesign created this lovely cover for Anne of Green Gables and went on to design the whole series in similar botanical treatments, which you can find on her instagram and website. See below for Zoe's inspiration! . . RP @zoehdesign - A little late to #12daysofannestagram party but I just had to get involved. Working on these books and the whole L. M. Montgomery series was one of my all time favourite projects. Backtracking to #day1 of 12, my favourite book has to be the very first Anne. You can’t beat it. .  Thanks to @thebooksellersdaughter and @carrottoppapershop for hosting this brilliant celebration of my favourite books. . .  The cover inspiration came from all of Montgomery’s fantastic descriptions of the plant life in the changing seasons and how they lifted Anne’s spirits in challenging times. ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒณ To get this edition search for the ISBN 9781473316843 on Amazon ๐Ÿ‘
Since I can't find "The Sisters of Alameda Street" and therefore can't do my monthly reading wrap up yet, here's my beloved Lake Michigan for you.  When our Japanese host son first laid eyes on it, he said, "It is like sea." Of course, I thought of Anne's words to Diana as they looked at the silvery ocean from #princeedwardisland's shores: "Look at that sea, girls, all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen. We couldn't enjoy its loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds." What is your favorite "sea"? #puremichigan  #anneofgreengables  #12daysofannestagram  #literaryquotes
I know this is supposed to be Diana Barry stitched into my kindred spirits quilt, but she also could be my girl, Phoebe Min Ju Jayne. OR!  Emily of New Moon. ๐ŸŒ™ ๐ŸŒ™ ๐ŸŒ™  What do you think? Is my piecework pal Diana, Emily or Phoebe? :) Thanks again to master quilter @jenabbasdejong for this lavish gift!  #12daysofannestagram  #anneofgreengables #emilyofnewmoon  #literarylife
Rainy Sunday afternoons and current reads (I’m in the middle of Anne of Ingleside) ๐Ÿ’• How do you spend rainy afternoons? My amazing Hogwarts tshirt is from @sweetsequels - don’t expect to see me wearing anything else for a while ๐Ÿ˜‚ #zoeprosereads

Thank you so much to @tundrabooks #partner for sending a package of Anne-themed books my way. They are SO lovely. โ–ซ๏ธ I am completely taken with these board books by @kelly_anne_hill (๐Ÿ’•), and I can’t stop poring over all the perfect details: the patchwork fabrics, the embroidery, the charming stitch work. โ–ซ๏ธ Each spread features a sweet Anne vignette in textured illustrations that take me back to the homemade quiet books my mom made when I was little. I almost expected to touch cloth and thread instead of a smooth board page. It’s delightful. Swipe (and zoom in!) to see what I mean. ๐Ÿ˜ โ–ซ๏ธ I’m already planning to order several sets of these board books to give as baby gifts for future L.M. Montgomery fans. You never can start too early with the Anne love, in my opinion. :) โ–ซ๏ธ What are some of your most-loved board books? . . . #anneofgreengables #annesnumbers #annescolors #lmmontgomery #kellyhill #12daysofannestagram #boardbooks #babybooks #toddlerbooks #bookstagram #kidsbookstagram #booksandnature #kidsbooks
The most kindred quilt of all time!  My old writing friend Jen Abbas Dejong moved to Ohio years ago, but did not forget us in Grand Rapids. She read my book "Anne of Green Gables, My Daughter and I," and MADE this exquisite quilt for me and Phoebe. Close-ups to come!  Thank you to the moon and back for this exceptional gift, Jen!  #annewithane  #anneofgreengables  #12daysofannestagram  #quiltingfun
These beautiful board books from @tundrabooks #partner are just amazing.  Kelly Hill did such a great job creating some of the most beloved scenes from Anne with fabric and embroidery floss so the pages look three-dimensional.  My little boys can’t keep their hands off them.  They want to pull Anne’s braids like Gilbert! ๐Ÿ˜† I was so thankful for the opportunity to review these board books for preschoolers, along with the picture book, “Goodnight, Anne” and early reader, “Anne Arrives” — they are directly below this review in my feed if you missed them.  I think any fan of Anne of Green Gables is going to love having these books to introduce Anne to their young children, nieces, or grandkids. “Anne’s Colors” and “Anne Arrives” are my two favorites; which of these look the most interesting to you? . . . #annestagram #anneofgreengables #boardbooks #conceptbook #childrensbooks #colors #numbers #kidsbookstagram #kidlit #raisingreaders #tundrabooks #kellyhill #lmmontgomery #12daysofannestagram
If you haven't read this one, you are missing out! This book by Montgomery was written with an adult audience in mind and so it differs from her norm. Lovely and exciting, I highly recommend it! . . . . #classicbooks #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #recommended #favoriteauthors #favoritebooks #reading #booklove #12daysofannestagram #lucymaudmontgomery
All things must come to an end, including "Anne at the Beach"! Thanks again to @tundrabooks for these beautiful and winsome children's books, and @penguinrandomhouse for this color-bursting new edition of #anneofgreengables!  #12daysofannestagram  #partner  #beachreads  #bookcollection  #puremichigan
Okay, so "Goodnight, Anne" is a picture book for children, right?  Right, and wrong! Every #anneofgreengables fan out there needs this lustrous book. The illustrations are magical and the words go straight to the โค of Anne's story. It's like Goodnight Moon except in Anne's dreamscape. Let's just say she bids good night to the Lake of Shining Waters! Her love for Matthew and Marilla and her new place of belonging shines through. Such a loving, soothing story to end the day.  Thank you to @tundrabooks for sending me these thrilling titles. Thrilling? Yes! It's thrilling to think of parents everywhere sharing beloved Anne with their wee ones. Absolutely so!  #anneofgreengables  #12daysofannestagram  #partner  #sponsored
