1. The Blue Castle is my favorite L. M. Montgomery novel. I love the Anne series but Valancy is still my favorite. I haven’t read it in years so I’m off to reserve a copy from the library.

  2. I actually named my photography business after this book. (See if you can find me. 😉 I wanted to name it after Montgomery somehow and everything I came up with involving Anne was too cheesy. So walla! Blue Castle. This is probably my favorite non-Anne book by Montgomery so I’m glad you both read and enjoyed it!

    Thanks for participating! This is a great review!

  3. This book sounds like a classic! I have not read the book yet but after all of these romantic reviews…I am definitely going to.

    Thanks for the review!

  4. Of the ones I have read thus far, Blue Castle is my favorite as well. Anne comes a close second, but Valency is full of such spunk at the end, it made me wish in a way Maud had written a sequel to her life.
    I want to read Jane of Lantern Hill, now…..that will have to come later in the year, but I WILL read it. Thanks!

  5. I’ve read the Anne books, the Storygirl books and Pat and Emily; but have gotten to this one yet. I’m glad it’s on the shelf and calling my name. Thanks for your review.

    Interesting – from your review, this sounds like it has similarities to Gene Stratton Porter’s “Freckles”, which I read recently. I suppose they were written in basically the same era, so that would make sense. i enjoyed your review!

    It’s been a long, long time since I’ve read Freckles. However, I always thought that Little Women and Anne had some common elements, so I suppose that another of LMM’s works sharing some commonalities with another contemporary novel would not be unusual. Thanks for commenting, sjbruan!

    The Blue Castle is one of my favourite books by LMM Montgomery. I wish I had it in book form because I hate reading online. It’s such a beautiful story. I think it’s a book everyone should read =D. Glad there’s more people loving it. I thought it was so overlooked.

    Dear people…
    I just wanted to say how much I adore L.M. Montgomery too. I was actually never interested in them before. I read the Anne series (of course I loved them) but mostly I didnt find Anne as interesting as her children. I became interested in them about week ago and i know that hasnt been awhile, but for me it seems as if i always was addicted and was just to lazy to open them. Kids my age don’t read Lucy’s books because they probably havent even discovered that there was more then just 2books she created (I thought there was only <> and <>). Anyways no one was reading them at my grade school (there not popular around there) … They were just gonna throw all her books away… So instead they just gave all her books to me. In a week I’ve read more than half of the books and there wonderfulXD! I couldnt decide which one I should do for my Isp(Idenpendent Study Project…half ur marks) after reading nights and days I decided on <>. I must say that <> is one of my favourites but I’ve never in all my life heard of the name Valancy:P. I like the name Moonlight better…

    This is my favorite after the Emily of New Moon series. Its a beautiful, happy book. Its “so beautiful it hurts” 😉
    Such a pity I only read it online. I wish I could have it on my hands to reread it over and over again

  11. I’ve been meaning to post here, Amy, to say I enjoyed reading your thoughts on this book. I absolutely loved it, and it makes me want to read more L.M. Montgomery. (I’ve only read Anne besides this.)
