#43. Read every book by my favorite author

Number 53 on my list is to read every book by my favorite author, L. M. Montgomery.  She is most well known for writing Anne of Green Gables.


I love that series, but my favorite book by her is called The Blue Castle.

  2. I’m totally an Anne of Green Gables & I dream of visiting PEI one day – but ashamed to admit I never knew of her other novels! Def need to look into them! 😀

    P.S. Have you seen the Megan Follows adaptation of Anne of Green Gables? – oh my gosh, it’s so good! Gilbert Blythe in that movie was totally my childhood crush! (Still is, to be honest, Gilbert is so flawless!)

    • Yes, definitely check out her other books! The Emily of New Moon series is my favorite, as well as The Blue Castle. So fantastic. 🙂

      And yes, I have! I agree – Gilbert is flawless. 🙂
