Following Anne's story has made me SO HAPPY it's just so lovely and I can't deal with how good this series is.

This one could basically be summed up as "no, Anne will not marry you."

The first is still my favorite, but there were a lot of quotes I loved in this one as well! And 5 stars for Gilbert.

My sentimental favorite of the Anne series. I always thought college was going to be just like that - my best friends, a cute little house in a great neighborhood, and my childhood friend, madly in love with me. Anne is one of my favorite literary heroines, and I liked her transition between girlhood and adulthood. She's grown out of classic Anne of Green Gables, but she's still the same person.

I must have read this book 30 times, and it never gets any less fun. It's one of my top 5 comfort book

description

After an eventful summer, changes are in store for Anne as she prepares to leave Avonlea for Redmond College.

Anne dressed in the cheerless gray dawn, for an early start was necessary to catch the boat train; she struggled against the tears that would well up in her eyes in spite of herself. She was leaving the home that was so dear to her, and something told her that she was leaving it forever, same as a holiday refuge. Things would never be the s

"In imagination she sailed over storied seas that wash the distant shining shores of "faery lands forlorn," where lost Atlantis and Elysium lie, with the evening star for pilor, to the land of Hearts Desire. And she was richer in those dreams than in realities; for things seen pass away, but the things that are unseen are eternal."


Dear Lucy Maud,

Thank you.
Love,
Jo.




Dear Manchester,

Hope you’re well.

Gahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

How did I ever rate this book less than five stars???!!!!! It was brilliant. No, more than that. It was captivating, thrilling, and so emotional. I don't know why I got so emotional while reading this. I almost yelled out loud, and I cried about five times. GAH. THIS BOOK IS AMAZING. Where has my love for it been all my life?!!! Why have I not read this 20 times yet?!!!! I loved it to bits. Definitely a new all-time-favourite.

I loved it, okay?!!!!

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! :D :D :D :D

I loved this book SOOOOO much!! Probably as much as the first book, if not maybe even a little bit more! :)) It was really hard at first to determine which one I liked better, but I think I like Anne of the Island more since she just starts college and all ^_^ I felt like I could relate to her and the things she went through more in this book. There were so many little, tiny things that I enjoyed about this book, but the main thing I loved…....(I think you can gues
