Here There Be Books (BL)

I love books with great characters who go on adventures and/or solve mysteries re: invading aliens/vampires/etc. I blog about those books at Here There Be Books!


This is the BookLikes thingy for HTBB.

Anne of Avonlea (Anne of Green Gables Series #2)

Anne of Avonlea (Anne of Green Gables Series #2) - For some reason it seemed less adventurous than the first book? Maybe because Anne herself is growing up; she’s a Young Adult in this book, not a kid,1 and so though she still gets herself into trouble she handles it like an ideal almost-adult would. Which is great for character development! But it’s slightly less exciting to read about someone handling problems with dignity and decorum than about that same someone causing a ruckus. Watching someone throwing a tantrum in real life is scary, but in a book it makes for good reading! Although, now that I think about it, if she HAD acted exactly like she did in the first book, I’d be complaining about THAT instead. Can’t win either way!Read the rest of my review at my blog.
