42 thoughts on “Quiz: Which Montgomery Heroine Are You?”
Haha, awesome. I came out so close on A, B, and C that I wound up looking at the results and just picking–and Emily Starr is probably the most accurate choice there, though I haven’t read Pat yet and may find myself switching after I do. But I think you’ve just convinced me to give her a try as soon as possible–which is to say, the moment I’ve finished the book I have out from the library. 😀
That’s really interesting, but Montgomery’s heroines do have a lot in common with each other–lots of heart and imagination!–so perhaps it isn’t too surprising your results were so close. Picking your best fit is completely allowed–after all, I’m sure you know yourself better than a quiz ever could! 😀 Pat may be my favorite heroine, so I’ll be shameless here and suggest you do give her a try as soon as possible!
‘Smatter of fact, having realized that your read-along only lasts ten more days, I pulled both Pat books off my shelf and started reading her over lunch. 😀 I’m excited to get to know her!
Tied for Emily and Anne! I am most pleased, of course, about Anne.
Great results! Alas, I did not get Anne, but I suppose I’m really not as extroverted as she is anyway.
I did get Anne and I’m confused. I am definitely not that outgoing!
There’s no one to blame but yourself, since you wrote the quiz. 😀
I wouldn’t really call myself extroverted either. I would never crack a slate over someone’s head, for example, even if I did get as angry as she did. I suppose Krysta and I just have a good amount of other things in common with her. Or we are just more like her than the other characters in the quiz. I only really know Emily besides Anne.
Excuse me while I go hide in shame of admitting that. I am well aware that I have much reading to do.
Well, strange things do happen to me. I’m not sure any of Montgomery’s characters gets into so many odd situations as Anne! Maybe you resemble her in her romantic view of life? And, of course, her love of reading and writing. 😀
And, yes, that is terrible. Did you not see my shameless plugging of Pat above? I don’t really see you as Valancy, though, or Gay Penhallow for that matter, so perhaps the quiz is more accurate than would at first appear.
I tied for Pat and Emily!
That’s a rather interesting combination, don’t you think? For instance, Emily tends to associate with naturally gifted people–artists and orators and such–and is rather proud. Pat, on the other hand, really isn’t interested in higher learning and is content to be at home and to work there. She mentions that associating with people who make her feel like she has to be “clever” is tiring. And she’s rather shy.
Well, I think that’s a fair combination. I like hanging out with smart people but sometimes I like not having to be all impressive. :p (Because, um, it’s just so hard for me not to be impressive….right?) And I do like my house. Hobbit tendencies and all.
I came out as most like Valancy Stirling, with Anne Shirley as a close second. I’ve not yet read The Blue Castle, and now I’m going to, so that I can meet Valancy! I do love Anne Shirley. Thanks for the quiz, Krysta (and to Jenna for the heads-up on it)!
It’s been a long time since I’ve read The Blue Castle, so I’m a bit ashamed to admit I don’t remember all that much about Valancy except that she has a lovely tale of self-discovery. I’m glad you enjoyed the quiz! Thanks for stopping by!
Carrie-Ann, I could definitely see you lining up with Valancy. She starts off really beaten down–but in just a few chapters, she’s all kinds of wonderful. 🙂
Krysta, I think your quiz does really well–which is amazing; usually with these things, it’s relatively obvious which answers go with which final possibility, and yours wasn’t that way at all. Even though I ended up with a three-way split, I can totally see why it’s those three, and where I line up with them.
Thanks so much! I did try to go for more unconventional questions, as well as ones that wouldn’t point too obviously to certain characters. I know I have a tendency to want to adjust my answers if I can see where a quiz is leading!
Finally had time to take this! I was a pretty even mix of A’s and D’s, so I guess that makes me Pat or Gay. XD I haven’t read either of their stories so I’ll have to get on that and see how accurate that is.
Thanks for posting this!
I tried to go for more unusual results, but I neglected to consider that not everyone might have read the stories! Gay Penhallow, for instance, though one of my favorite characters, is only one of many in a book that chronicles the stories of a range of characters, rather than focusing on one person like Anne of Green Gables or Emily of New Moon. You could probably read the book and forget she was in it! (I know I have trouble remembering the other people in it. Oops!) I’m glad you liked the quiz, anyway! 😀
I got Valancy! (After almost getting, er, all of them….) But now I need to read The Blue Castle!
Maybe I should’ve added more questions to help avoid all these ties! I can see you as Valancy, though!
haha. Awesome. Now I really need to read the Blue Castle so I know who Valancy is!
Yesssss, I got Valancy. I probably cheated 🙂
I admit I tried to get Pat, but somehow it didn’t work out! ;D
This was really cool! I guess I’m Emily, with a tad of Valancy Stirling. I think I’ll have to read those books now! 😉
I’m glad you enjoyed! I hope you find that you like Emily and Valancy, as well! 😉
Anne Shirley through and through 🙂 I loved this!

Nice! Anne is a great result! I always envy her ability to find the good in everything and to say just the right thing to help put people at ease.

That you like writing and stories and sometimes have brief run-ins with the supernatural. :p

minus the supernatural stuff unfortunately 😉
I got a tie for Emily and Anne, which I’m really happy about as they are my favourite book characters. I love Emily’s moonshine beauty, if I were to quote the books, although it is very different from my beauty.
Anne’s personality is definitely closer to mine though, so if I were to pick one that was the most ‘me’, I would have to pick Anne. I do look more like her, and relate more to her.
Emily and Anne are both great choices!!
I think I may be more of a Pat because I am average, lol! I definitely don’t have Emily’s moonshine beauty!
I tied between Emily and Valancy! Emily is a very relatable character for me and I wasn’t surprised about that.The Blue Castle had been on my TBH for so long, I think I will finally pick it up 🙂
I think both Emily and Valancy are great–both go after their dreams!
