Lucy Maud Montgomery Reading Challenge

L. M. Montgomery Reading ChallengeIt’s time for Carrie‘s annual Lucy Maud Montgomery Reading Challenge! I so enjoyed this last year and the year before! The Anne books in particular are ones I love to read over and over, and this challenge gives me a chance to do that for a month, but helps me to keep it confined to a month — once I start the series I want to go all the way through them, and this helps me pace it out so it doesn’t take over my reading completely.

In previous years I read Anne of Green Gables, Anne of Avonlea, Anne of the Island and Anne of Windy Poplars for this challenge and watched Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel (all links are to my reviews) because it covers three of those books. I also read Looking for Anne of Green Gables: The Story of L. M. Montgomery and Her Literary Classic by Irene Gammel, and found some of it insightful but some of it woefully off-base.

This year I want to continue the Anne series with Anne’s House of Dreams (the one I’ve been most wanting to get to!) and Anne of Ingleside. If those go pretty quickly, I may go on the the last two books, but I am just going to commit to those two for now.

Besides the enjoyment of reading LMM books, it’s also enjoyable to do so with others at the same time and see their thoughts as well. I’m looking forward to a good month with Anne!

  1. I’d been following your posts about resuming your Anne of Green Gables reading. Not long ago, someone else mentioned LMM’s Blue Castle and had an irresistible excerpt. I got it through inter-library loan and devoured it in a handful of sittings. Loved the story and Valancy’s change in the direction of her life.
