The NOPE Jar and Anne of Green YES PLEASE



"Anna reading a book" or "A rare moment of sitting still"


****Book List Update****

(Mainly for myself since it is probably yawn worthy to anyone other than me and my sister...)

I started The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath which I mentioned in the last post and I have to say, I wasn't into it. I was trying and trying to push through for the sake of crossing a book off my list but not. worth. it.

I then was trying to remember where the recommendation had come from and realized it was from a 20 books to read if you are in your 20's and a girl and blah blah blah... quick synopsis: girl goes off to college and starts to lose her mind and it all goes down hill from there. I am in no way saying that mental health is not an important topic to be explored or educated in, but it was not really the means to do that for me. It was a downer and just kind of plain weird. SO, what to read now? The total opposite: Anne of Green Gables.

I'm biting the (uplifting and fun) bullet! I really owe this to one of my best friends who is a die hard Anne of Green Gables fan...I attended her bridal shower the other weekend and it was oozing with turn of the century class! We had tea and raspberry cordial and it was Anne themed. So fitting for my beautiful friend! And needless to say it inspired me to pick up my copy and read away! And so far I am LOVING it! I feel like a kid, but really, now that I am a mother of a little girl I feel it is my duty. Especially since I am Canadian and have a little Ann of my own. My Ann without an E.

  1. Sometimes you just need to ditch the books that don't speak to you. I tried over and over again to read A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce and I failed with every attempt. Anne of Green Gables is a lovely read! :)
