    The only other adaptation I've seen is the 1983 miniseries with Zelah Clark and Timothy Dalton, which scared me half to death. But that was probably just because I was around 13-14 years old at the...

  9. You're Never Too Old For A Good Story

    This book is yet another one of my favourite books written by L.M. Montgomery. While still retaining the same quality as Anne of Green Gables and the Emily Trilogy, it has a unique flavour all it's...
