Character Connection (5): Anne Shirley

Character Connection is a weekly meme hosted by Jen at The Introverted Reader every Thursday. It’s where we get to discuss our favorite book characters and what we love about them!

One of my favorite books of all time is Anne of Green Gables, it was actually my first book love. Anne Shirley & Gilbert Blythe are my two all-time favorite book characters, and I treasure the entire Anne series. I have re-read them all numerous times, and I undoubtedly will many times in the future.

I’m going to talk about Anne this week, but to read it you’ll be traveling to The Neverending Shelf. Kate is having a “My Favorite Things Birthday Bash” on her blog this week, and I did a guest post featuring Anne.

If you read it, make sure to come back and tell me what you think!

    I love Anne too. And Gilbert. Especially the Gilbert from the movies – so handsome.
    Have you read the Story Girl and Golden Road by LM Montgomery. Those books introduce some great characters, especially Sara Stanley.

    Great choice of Anne! She is pretty darn great. Now you will have to come visit Anne and I here in PEI 🙂

    You know I love Anne too! You did a great job describing her appeal. I can't help but picture Megan Follows when I read that first book. It's been ages since I watched the movie, but she made quite an impression on me!

    I absolutely love Anne too! Who doesn't? They must be crazy! Just kidding. Great post!

    Thank you for such a wonderful post! You described Anne so well. It's impossible to not love her!
