Sadly, not all is happy, and sometimes a new beginning means saying goodbye. Starting January 3rd, fans of Anne With An E must bid farewell to the lovable freckled redhead, Anne.

When any series, book, television show, movie franchise, etc, comes to a close, there can be a process of letting go and moving on. This is especially the case with inspiring and heartfelt shows like Anne With An E — but such is life. We move on and grow, and, thanks to these beloved shows, we have been able to take a break from the rough battles of reality!

So that being said, let’s take 2020 by storm, with some amazing books and book adaptations to support us along the way.
