One of my favorite books and movies of all time is Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery. I've read these books and watched these movies more times than I should be willing to admit. I always wanted to be Anne Shirley. She's fun, spunky, creative and brilliant. (Who am I kidding? I still want to be Anne Shirley!) I've always wanted to be a redhead and I blame that little quirk of mine on Anne.
My first literary love was Gilbert Blythe. From the the time Gilbert called Anne 'Carrots' I was smitten. I was in love with him before I ever saw the movie version of the book but once I saw Jonathan Crombie I was a complete goner.
