My Book Boyfriend {#3} Gilbert from Anne of Green Gables

 My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by Missie over atThe Unread Reader! Go check it out now! I want to hear all about your book boyfriend! 

Sorry this is a day late, but better late than never, as I and millions of others like to say! I thought I'd be old school today and go back to my roots. The first book boy that started my long string of book boyfriends. Gilbert Blythe. I'm definitely going to have to agree with Anne and her quote in Anne of Windy Poplars: “Gilbert, I'm afraid I'm scandalously in love with you.” 

I don't know how Anne managed to stay angry with him for so long after the "carrots incident", but gee whiz... She sure knows how to hold a grudge! 

Described in the books as having dark curly hair, hazel eyes and a long lean build, obviously Gilbert has to be cast as the dashing Jonathan Crombie! Who I think played him perfectly in the films! Ohhhh, Gil! You're so cute! 


  1. Hahaha great quote! I love me some Gilbert Blythe. I was sad later in the series when he and Anne had their "marital problems".

  2. @Casey I was too... I think the later books weren't as good at the earlier books though. :/ Thanks for commenting! :)

  3. YAAAAY Gilbert! I love him, so, so much! I don't know how Anne resisted him for so long, either, silly Anne!

  4. Hahaha! Yes, Anne did hold that grudge for a long time, didn't she?

    Oh, how I love Gilbert Blythe! I remember watching all the films as a kid and just being absolutely taken by him. :)

  5. @Belle Me too!

    @Missie She did! I still love to watch those films! Especially with the weather slowly starting to get cooler, it's going to be Anne of Green Gables and Little Women time! ;D Love those films!

    Thank you both for commenting! <3
