One reason I LOVE January is because it brings Carrie’s annual L.M. Montgomery Reading Challenge! This is Carrie’s fifth year to host the challenge and my fifth year to participate. (You might say Carrie and I bonded over all things LMM. 😉 ) Most of my long-time friends know how much I love Anne Shirley and her world, and that love includes most of L.M. Montgomery’s other books. This year I’m jumping into the challenge with the second and possibly the third of the Emily books, Emily Climbs and Emily’s Quest.
This month’s selection for Carrie’s Reading to Know Bookclub just happens to be Montgomery’s The Blue Castle, which I will re-read if time and opportunity presents itself.
If you’re looking for more L.M. Montgomery inspiration, here’s a list of links to all my book reviews and LMM ruminations, including one of my favorite posts ever, Prince Edward Island Reminiscences, which is about mine and Steady Eddie’s honeymoon on PEI.
L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables, adapted by M.C. Helldorfer review (also thoughts on what makes a good adaptation)
PEI Reminscences, a post in which I share pictures and memories of mine and Steady Eddie’s honeymoon on the Island
L.M. Montgomery Meanderings, a post in which I reminisce about how I became such a fan
Are you joining in this year’s challenge? What are you reading?
