This week I read Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery, as part of the 52 books in 52 weeks challenge but also for the Lucy M. Montgomery Reading Challenge.
Anne of Avonlea is the book that comes after Anne of Green Gables. We read about Anne Shirley's life for about two years, while she is still living at Green Gables and teaching at the local one room schoolhouse. Anne is such a wonderful character, I really love her imagination and can relate so much to her love and admiration for nature. Reading this book was like a breath of fresh air, in the middle of winter it was a nice escape from the reality of the cold outside!
