Lucy Maud Montgomery Reading Challenge :: 2012 Conclusion

L. M. Montgomery Reading Challenge

It just went by too fast, that's what! I regret to say that it is indeed over though. I was hoping to be able to re-read much more Montgomery than I was ultimately able to, but I did enjoy the two books I was able to visit with (both of which are linked to my reviews:)

The Story Girl
The Golden Road

I managed to watch a single episode of Road to Avonlea while walking on the treadmill one evening! Lastly, I managed to throw an Anne of Green Gables brunch (linked). (First Annual?) The brunch didn't go exactly as I was hoping (wait? life?) but my friends were incredibly gracious about the whole thing and we enjoyed some yummy food and good soul encouraging fellowship which I'll take any ol' day of the week!

Over all, this month has not gone as I expected. It is what it is, I guess! I'm very curious to discover what all of you read this past month. There have been a post or two which have popped up in my Reader as we've gone along. Looking forward to seeing all the posts I might have missed! Please leave a link in the comment section below so that we can all see what you read and talked about! In a week or so I'll share all of the links in a single post for easy referencing for those who would like it, as I have done in the past.

I hope you have enjoyed your time with Montgomery this month and we'll "play again" next January!

Two posts from me this month:

I'm running out of stand-alone titles to read! It was fun, though. Thanks for hosting each January! Now I'm off to read about your brunch!

I managed to get everything I intended for the month done (at least as far as the L.M. Montgomery reading challenge is concerned--for the rest, well...)

I wrote a wrap-up post ( with links to all my quote posts--and included a giveaway (not trying to steal your thunder or anything, but I thought it would be kinda fun to give away one of my Anne doll collection pieces.)

I read the last four books in the Anne series. I posted a wrap-up post with links to my reviews of each book here:

I've so enjoyed revisiting Anne but I am looking forward to some of LMM's other books next time.

A brunch not going as planned -- sounds very Anne-ish. :-D

Thanks so much for hosting this again!

I'm with you Carrie! Not enough time in the month. Between short or no lunch breaks at work (my favorite time to read LMM short stories), and the determinate to finish some craft projects, I got through part of Anne of the Island, 3 short stories, and one movie night with Anne of Avonlea (aka Anne, the Sequel) with a friend who had never seen it. I am trying to convince DH to read The Tangled Web or The Story Girl next year, though!

I posted twice about the challenge this month.

The first post outlining my goals:

And my thoughts after finishing *Anne of Green Gables*:

Thank you for hosting this! I'm so glad I participated! :)

This month FLEW by! I ended up with 3 reviews and one conclusion post:

Annette Whipple said...

Well...I will first apologize for not having time to write a wrap up post...I just realized I never even wrote about sharing the Anne picture book (same as Amy's) that it true to the story of Anne, but does miss out on a bit of the emotion.

Nor did I write about sharing Anne with my daughter. She loved it.

I did manage to write about the 1934 Anne. I do recommend it for Anne fans, but only IF they can watch Megan Follows soon after.

I made time to read LMM but not enough to write about all of them. I read Emily's Quest and posted briefly my thoughts.
I also read Kilmenny but couldn't get my hands on a Pat book or Marigold. So I will get to those as soon as I find them!
I love the fact that Kilmenny reads a bit like a Sir Walter Scott poem.

I didn't meet all my goals(do I ever?!!!), but at least I managed to read Anne of Green Gables this year. :)

Here is my follow up post:

I am a day late, but I'm trying to get over a sinus infection and have life go back to normal. Your brunch sounds wonderful and such a great idea!

I didn't officially join the challenge, but I did read the Chronicles of Avonlea and thoroughly enjoyed it! My very brief comments can be found on my January summary post here.

Done and done!

I love your brunch idea. That sounds super fun. ; )
