My Top 3 Recommendations for Appropriate Books (Part 2)
#1 The Anne of Green Gables Series by L.M. Montgomery
Anne Shirley is one of Canada's as well as one of the world's most beloved characters. L.M. Montgomery's classic novel about Anne and her journey from her oh-so-desperate life as an orphan to her blessed and beautiful experiences at Green Gables is a heart warming classic that almost everyone will enjoy. The Anne of Green Gables Series consists of 8 books: Anne of Green Gables, Anne of Avonlea, Anne of the Island, Anne of Windy Poplars, Anne's House of Dreams, Anne of Ingleside, Rainbow Valley, and Rilla of Ingleside. However, only 6 of them actually focus on Anne's life as an individual. Regardless, this classic is a definite must-read and I highly recommend it.
#2 Little Men by Louisa May Alcott
Of course, Louisa May Alcott's most famous novel is Little Women, but only recently did I come to realize that Little Women was only the first book in a short series of books. Little Men by Louisa May Alcott is the second book in the Little Women Series. It is the continuation of her beloved story as the four March sisters are now separately married and Jo and her husband now run a home for boys. The story has almost the same plot line as Little Women, but it is sure to be just as different and just as heartwarming. I do recommend that you read the first book before this one as there will be many references from the former.
#3 The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Series by J.R.R. Tolkien
Ok, so I know Elves, Hobbits, and Gandalf are not necessarily popular with every single person on earth (even though it should be. lol.), but what would this post be without a little Tolkien. I absolutely adore The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and the books are sure to be just as amazing! I know that there is some controversy when it comes to the book's frequent use of magic, battle violence, and even it's comparison to Harry Potter, but the thing is, The Lord of the Rings was definitely written with "The Good Fight" in mind. Tolkien's use of magic and battle scenes depict the victory of good vs. evil, where as many books today are not hesitant to portray evil as the winner. Again, I am not at all criticizing those books or their readers. I am only giving another alternative for those who wish to have a more appropriate collection of books to read for their sensitive souls, as do I. I do, however, caution readers of a younger age with this book because it is somewhat heavy and very long for those who may not be particularly experienced with extensive reading material. Nevertheless, it is a masterpiece in itself.
