***5 beautiful “Kindred Spirits” stars!!***
Sighs…Anne of Green Gables and her crazy doings will forever stay in my heart <3. Can there be such a crazy, beautiful, kindred spirit soul as Anne? No, I do not think so (there are two exceptions: Miranda Cheever and Penelope :D). This precious book is the first out of the many books in the Anne of Green Gables series.
I think many of you know what Anne of Green Gables is about or have seen her movies…if you haven’t then read on!
Anne is an orphan girl who was adopted by Marilla and Matthew Curthbert…let’s say she was meant to be a boy. She is an odd looking little girl with fierce red hair, freckles, gray eyes, and pale skin. She is a full kindred spirit and very imaginative. Everybody suspects that she will be a disappointment but she is not. From adventures,imagination, to meeting new friends, to accidents, to love, being smart, and turning into a beauty Anne’s life is not what she ever thought it would be.
“It’s been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.”
She has a rival…the amazing Gilbert. Yes, I fell in love with him ;).
Ever since he pulled her hair and called her carrots Gilbert and Anne have never been the same.
Competitions, glances, rivalry, ignorance,and hate has driven the two to not talk to each other. But as time passes by and with the help of her best friend Diana, Anne has let that hate slide away and has allowed a little bit of likeness to come in through her heart towards Gilbert. And maybe..maybe love will happen.
But besides that, Anne has her studies to worry about. She has her beloved best friend Diana, and she has her cold but kind Marilla and sweet Matthew:
But as she grows up Anne’s life takes a turn of a grown women and she experiences how life truly is…harsh, unfair, and sad. But also wonderful.
But there is something…a place that she will always remember and never forget…her Green Gables.
“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
“It’s not what the world holds for you. It’s what you bring to it.”
Anne of Green Gables is a beautiful book. It is one of my favorite classics and will forever stay in my heart. It is full of life, love, innocence, beauty, finding yourself,forgiveness, growing up, and it is tremendously funny!
She is one of my favorite heroines and she is such a great example. I think you all know the reason why I gave this 5 stars and I don’t really need to explain myself that much :D. But if you have never read this you should.
Anne of Green Gables is a beautiful journey of a young girl and her imagination.
“Because when you are imagining, you might as well imagine something worth while.”
