Friday Fifteen

Happy Friday, everyone! Somehow it feels like a surprise this week, like my brain is still on Thursday. But I’m all too happy for it to be Friday and to be sharing this week’s roundup of book reviews in fifteen words or less.

1. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
As a redheaded Anne, I so connect to this book. Plus Matthew makes me cry.

2. The Devil in Massachusetts by Marion Lena Starkey
Read for a 7th grade history report. Not sure if it’s entirely historically accurate.

3. Sneaking Out (Sweet Valley Twins #5) by Francine Pascal
Jessica sneaks out to a concert, Elizabeth stays home. Suspense?!

4. Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier
Dug it more than I expected to. Vivid portrayal of life in 17th century Holland.

5. Ronald Morgan Goes to Bat by Patricia Reilly Giff
Could understand not being a natural athlete; the ice cream scene particularly appealed to me.

  1. I absolutely LOVE Anne of Green Gables and Girl with a Pearl Earring. The movie of Anne with Meagan Follows is also a favourite…I think they did a splendid job capturing the characters…unfortunately the movie of Girl, with Colin Firth (as much as I love him!) was a disappointment. Just goes to show that although translation onto film doesn’t seem a difficult undertaking, it doesn’t always succeed.

    • I can’t imagine anyone as Anne but Meagan Follows. That whole series was pretty perfectly cast! I thought the Girl with a Pearl Earring movie was okay–loved how it was shot, costume details, etc., but agreed that it didn’t entirely translate.
