It’s Book Traveling Thursday! It is a weekly meme hosted by Catia and Danielle. At the beginning of each month, they post a list of weekly themes. After choosing a book that fits the theme, you look at different covers of various editions and write your blog post with the original cover, the covers from your country, your favourite cover, and your least favourite cover. To find out more check out Goodreads group!
This week’s theme is: We all have to start out of somewhere. Choose a book that got you into reading. One of the first books I remember reading and loving is Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. This must be the first series that I ever read, and I loved it. I was following Anne’s life in all the different books, it was amazing. I started reading about her teen lives and then about her adolescence and adulthood. I don’t remember much of the story, but it gives me a warm feelings, and I just remember living it and enjoying it.
When Anne Shirley arrives at Green Gables farm on Prince Edward Island, she surprises everyone: first of all, she is a girl. Marilla Cuthbert and her brother, Matthew, had specifically asked for an orphan boy. She has bright red hair that won’t manage and a mouth that won’t shut. Nothing will ever be the same at Green Gables!
