Welcome to my June Top 5 List as part of the #AnneReadAlong2017!
I think these top 5 lists are so fun. And they are an easy way to get involved in our#AnneReadAlong2017. Check out Jackie’s post here for more info. And enjoy my list this month!
Top 5 Adventures Present-Day Anne Would Have Gotten Up To
- Author book signings and book festivals. Anne loves novels and plans a particularly elaborate dinner party when she expects a famous author at her home, only to have the event canceled and then have a surprise visit not go as planned. I think Anne would be fangirling like the rest of us at the prospect of meeting a favorite author, having a book signed, or–even better–several at once!
- Community Theater. Anne is a regular contributor to various concerts in the first books. While she usually recites at them, I think she would be all about community theater productions today.
- Visiting Botanical Gardens, Arboretums, and old cemeteries. Anne loves being outdoors in nature. I think she would find a lot of scope for the imagination in these types of places, especially if she lived far from the countryside.
- Antique Shopping. Remember when Anne goes to a stranger’s house to ask if she can buy their authentic, same-pattern-as-Miss-Berry’s platter and ends up stuck in their roof? Hilarious! I think she would be all about finding “authentic” pieces in little antique shops and trying to get them for the best bargains.
- Cooking classes. Anne has some pretty funny blunders in the kitchen over the first several books. I think she would be great to have in a little cooking class–at William Sonoma or even just a neighborhood cooking club. She would probably mess us a few recipes and give us all great stories to go home with.
