How did you first discover LMM’s books?
A friend of my mom's told her about the Anne books when I was about 7. My mom read them aloud to us, and then I got copies for birthdays and such and read them all myself. In college, my lit prof told me I would like the Emily books, so I read those after college when I had time to read whatever I pleased again. And I recently read The Blue Castle for the first time on the strong recommendation of many blogging friends, especially Heidi and Naomi.
What’s your favorite LMM book?
What’s your least favorite LMM book?
Rainbow Valley, I think. Or Rilla of Ingleside. Both suffer from not enough Anne, too much of her children. Or so I thought when I read them in my tweens and teens! I have decided to re-read all of the Anne books in 2016 because it's been almost 20 years since I read several of the later ones.
Who is your favorite character in allllll of LMM’s works?
What couple is your favorite?
Valency Stirling and Barney Snaith in The Blue Castle. Yes, it's true -- I think I prefer them a wee bit over Anne and Gilbert as a couple.
What is your favorite quote from LMM (either a quote from one of her books, or from her personal life)?
ONE?!?!?!?! Well, I have this magnet on my fridge:
How many LMM books have you read?
Thirteen! The 8 Anne books, the 3 Emily books, and The Blue Castle, plus a collection of her short stories.
Which LMM book would you most like to see made into a movie?
The Blue Castle, but only if I get to be the screenwriter and director, and if I get to cast Michael Fassbender as Barney (HEY! He likes to work with first-time filmmakers, so it could happen!) and Elizabeth Henstridge as Valency.
