A Year with Maud

If you follow me on Instagram you will already know that I am planning a 2017 read-a-long of all of Lucy Maud Montgomery books, journals, and magazines. 
I have a lot of them. I own every novel of hers, as far as I know I have all of her short story collections. I have two of her journals, one biography, one scrapbook like compilation, and a handful of Kindred Spirits magazines.
I will be posting here and on Instagram at the end of each month to outline which things I will be trying to read during the following month. If you would like to I would love it if you joined me!
If you want to just read a few of her novels that is great! I will be finishing the Anne of Green Gables series very early on in the year but if you want to read it throughout the year I would love for you to come back to my posts after each book!

It has been way too long since I have read through her works and I have never read the 2nd journal (I just got it for Christmas). I am hoping to get to the rest of her journals later but for this year I am focusing on the ones I own. 

So, for January I will be trying to get through....

I will be starting Anne of Green Gables and hoping to get through Anne of Avonlea, Anne of the Island, and Anne of Windy Poplars. 
I will begin the first volume of her journals but will be reading this over the course of a couple of months. 
I will be reading the Winter 2000/2001 edition of Kindred Spirits. 

As I read I will post my thoughts. I also have a new journal that I will be writing in throughout this journey and I will share the things that I record there. 
I will be posting a lot to Instagram so make sure you follow me there if you want to see that!
Let me know if you plan on joining in!

Happy reading!
