Book #9: Emily of New Moon

Last year I read Anne of Green Gables for the first time, and then discovered that L. M. Montgomery wrote other series. I picked up the first book in her Emily series, Emily of New Moon, to give it a try. The story revolves around Emily, an orphan girl sent to live with distant relatives at the New Moon estate. She’s a creative, thoughtful girl who loves cats and writing. Through the episodic chapters the reader is introduced to her new family, home, and friends. It’s a delightful children’s story, though not very complex for adult readers. I admit I got a bit bored towards the end and just wanted to get it over with. There are two more books in the Emily series, though I don’t have any interest in reading them. This was a nice, light palate cleanser after dystopia, zombies, and graveyards.
