Anne’s House of Dreams

Anne's House of Dreams

Inspired by Eva, I am re-reading Anne’s House of Dreams (on the Kindle app of my very shiny new phone). Is there anyone who doesn’t love Anne of Green Gables? At one point in my childhood I had 5 copies of AOGG, given to me by assorted well-intentioned relatives; they laboured unloved on my shelves. One summer when I must have been 12 or 13 (?) I suddenly tore through the series; my objections to the first few pages of AOGG were overruled by the next few – and the thousand after that.

And I’m now of the right age to match Anne in her House of Dreams! (have been for a few years, but shhh) The writing is just as delicious as I remembered.

Back to the book.

(also I have my second cold in 3 weeks, despite the flu vaccination since the first cold, and am feeling very sorry for myself)

    I have been toying with idea of re-reading Anne of Green Gables then going on to read the others that I never got round to.

    I have the complete set, in hard cover, from my childhood, all much loved pages now speckled with age.

      I have re-assembled my collection over the last few years in the original paperback editions I had as a teenager (that Mini-Me has inherited).

    I should have had one of your copies of AOGG – this is one of my childhood favourites that I never owned and would endlessly borrow from the library (along with the rest in the series) Wonderful memories because I used to be thrilled when it was back on the shelf for me to borrow again.

    I re-read Anne of Green Gables a few years ago, and it was just as wonderful as I remembered but I’ve been dithering over the sequels, Clearly I need to get on with it!

      Do! I seem to remember #2 was a bit weak as is #7, but the whole set are wonderful.

    These are due for a re-read soon. I remember feeling that from the book where Anne married that her strong personally because sort of diluted.
