Further Praise of L. M. Montgomery

Because I just don’t think my praise for Lucy M Montgomery went far enough – I bring you…more books by the same author that I’m planning on reading in the very soon!



Once I’d started on the first series of Anne of Green Gables, I found I just couldn’t stop. I’ve decided to indulge in my newly rediscovered solace and will be reading more in the extended world, starting with the following books:



Title: Chronicles of Avonlea

Author: L.M. Montgomery

Series No: 01
Format: Short Story 
Published Date: 1912
Perspective: Various
Project Gutenberg: Avonlea 01
iTunes: Avonlea 01

Score: TO BE RE-READ
Thoughts:
Though I remember being very grumpy when I read this originally – Anne being only a peripheral character and all – I’m including it in this re-read as I have a feeling I’ll be more responsive now!

Title: Further Chronicles of Avonlea

Author: L.M. Montgomery

Series No: 02
Format: Short Story
Published Date: 1920
Perspective: Various
Project Gutenberg: Avonlea 02
iTunes: Avonlea 02

Score: TO BE RE-READ
Thoughts:

I don’t remember reading this book at all – though I know I have. Should be fun – I’ve been surprised at how much I remember from the Anne series!

Title:  The Story Girl
Author: L.M. Montgomery 

Series No: 01
Published Date: 1911
Perspective: Sara Stanley; The King Children; Sar Rue;  Beverley and Felix; Peter
Project Gutenberg: The Story Girl 01

Score: TO BE RE-READ
Thoughts:

I remember these two books being (next to the original three Anne book’s I read in one glorious sunny weekend) my favourite of Montgomery’s books. I look forward to reading them again and seeing if I’m still in love with them all!



Title: The Golden Road

Author: L.M. Montgomery

Series No: 02
Published Date: 1913
Perspective: Sara Stanley; The King Children; Sar Rue;  Beverley and Felix; Peter
Project Gutenberg:  The Story Girl 02

Score: TO BE RE-READ
Thoughts:
I seem to recall that this book made me cry buckets. This whole re-read has convinced me that I’m as big a softie as ever – so I imagine it will probably have as mushy as impact as before!




I’ll update this post once I start reading these and will let you know each time a new one is completed!
