A Secret Sisterhood

If you love to write and enjoy books about female friendships then A Secret Sisterhood may be the book for you. This book explores the close female friendships of Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, George Eliot and Virginia Woolf. I have only read Jane Eyre and Uncle Tom’s Cabin, so I still have a long way to go when it comes to reading more classics. This book was fascinating getting to read about fellow authors these ladies were friends with that weren’t highly publicized. I had no clue George Eliot was friends with Harriet Beecher Stowe. There are many fascinating stories in this book. If you love classics and history then I think this book will be very satisfying.

I received an ARC of A Secret Sisterhood by Emily Midorikawa and Emma Sweeney via NetGalley for free in exchange for my feedback. I found a finished library edition that I read of it. This book was fascinating, intense at times and a neat doorway into what friendships were like when your friend choice is not always viewed as socially acceptable.

The Landscapes Of Anne Of Green Gables

img_2107.jpgWho can’t resist reading about one of your all time favorite places even if you have yet to actually visit? In second grade I got to watch, “Anne of Green Gables,” the Kevin Sullivan production. It was breathtaking and Megan Follows will forever be Anne to me. I have watched the new version on Netflix. I was very negative about there being a new one. I chanced and watched it. It’s easily as fantastic as the previous mini series, possibly even better. Gasp. Very sacreligious I know. When this title became a possible ARC I’d be alllwed to read I jumped at my opportunity.

This lovely book takes the reader on a visual delight of the many wonders of Prince Edward Island. The photos show the island at different seasons. This book also, talks about the author of Anne Of Green Gables, ¬†Lucy Maude Montomgery otherwise known as L.M. Montgomery. If you like reading about your favorite author’s life then this book will leave you craving to read more about her. There are photos throughout of her and also, places on the island that inspired her novels.

If you are a big fan of Anne of Green Gables then this book will be a keeper once it comes out. The photos made me want to book my trip right away. It also, inspires one to want to learn more about L.M. Montgomery. I was provided this ARC for free via NetGalley in exchange for my review. Thank you NetGalley and Timber Press.
