Favourite book from childhood

October 3, 2011

Another favourite series from my childhood is the Anne series (and I’ve been lucky enough to move 5 minutes up the road from the home where L.M. Montgomery wrote most of the books!), and I’d have to say that my favourite Anne book is Anne’s House of Dreams.

If Gilbert is my favourite male character, then the book where he finally gets what he wants should be my favourite, no? In the earlier books, Anne is too flakey for me. By Anne of Windy Poplars and Anne’s House of Dreams her spark and creativity is undiminished but her temperament is improved; and the rest of the cast of characters is memorable and heartwarming.

It helped, too, as someone with an early love of books, that my mother had given me a copy of the beautiful 1917 edition. I was happy to get it on my Kobo so I could read it without being worried about hurting it.

  1. I loved this series, and I, too, think Anne’s House of Dreams is one of the best in the series, but Anne, flaky? No! She’s innocent, romantic and full of hope.

    Those things are definitely true…Like I said, I love her spark and creativity. Doesn’t mean she’s not a little grating after a while :p
