October in Review

Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery — 4 stars
My New Crush Gave to Me by Shani Petroff — 4.5 stars

After binge-watching the Anne of Green Gables tv movies for the first time all in one day (and then watching Netflix’s Anne with an E the next weekend), I knew I needed to read the books to immerse myself further into Anne’s world. I really enjoyed reading the source material and seeing the the different parts the different adaptations have taken from the book. I was disappointed that there wasn’t as much Gilbert as I was hoping for, but I still plan on reading the rest of the series.

My New Crush Gave To Me is the perfect holiday rom-com. Shani Petroff does a fantastic job of bringing in the winter and holiday vibes, and it was the perfect book to get me into the Christmas spirit. The romance is adorable, and I really enjoyed watching the relationship develop slowly. I also connected with Charlie’s Type A personality (although she is way more intense than I am) and appreciated this aspect of her character. Read my full review here!

    Pretty sure Gilbert gets a LOT more attention in the subsequent books. In the first book he feels more like a catalyst against Anne than anything else.
