One of our favorite books growing up — oh, heck, it’s still on our bookshelf — is L.M. Montgomery’s Anne Of Green Gables. Anne Shirley, the spunky and idealistic orphan with red braids, is an eternal kindred spirit for every Frisky gal. “Tomorrow is a new day, with no mistakes in it” is one of our favorite quotes, aptly summing up Anne’s refreshing outlook on life, despite her early circumstances. This print, featuring Ann-with-an-E’s wise words, will be a helpful reminder to look on the bright side the next time you’re having a rotten day.

It’s Crack A Book Week here at The Frisky, so what better time to start a page-turning series that will keep you occupied for the next few months? A hole was left in our pop culture-loving hearts when HBO’s “Game of Thrones” came to an end a few weeks ago, but the book series that inspired the show — written by George R. R. Martin and endorsed by our own John DeVore — lies in wait, ready to be soaked up along with the hot summer sun. The first four book are available as a boxed set for under $20, a deal we can’t resist. Winter may be a-comin’, but it’s still a long way off — we need Game of Thrones now.

Any bookworm with a strong imagination has probably pictured herself in the throes of fictional passion with any or all of the men that grace the pages of her tomes of choice. Just in case you should ever find yourself in such a situation in real life, with a real man, there are some important pieces of advice you’ll need to make the kill. Here is a categorized guide to landing the literary hero of your fantasies.
It’s still funny to me that Emma Stone could have been cheerleader Claire Bennet on “Heroes.” The part just wouldn’t have shown off her comedic chops. In fact, I think losing that part was the best thing that ever happened to her. Instead, Emma went the “Superbad” to “House Bunny” to “Easy A” route and is now poised to be one of the biggest stars of our generation. Sealing the deal? An offer has just been extended to her to play Elizabeth Bennet in the highly anticipated classic/zombie mash-up, “Pride, Prejudice and Zombies,” based on the best-selling book. Most predicted that the role would go either to heavy-hitters Natalie Portman or Scarlett Johansson. But we think Emma will be just perfect.
