Name That Novel

Music is a huge inspiration to me as a writer. But it's always nice to see a great work of fiction become another artist's muse. I fell in love with this music video from the moment I saw it. And not just because it's a great song. Before you scroll down to read the rest of this post, watch the video and tell me if you get the literary reference...

If, like me, you grew up reading the L.M. Montgomery books, (or even just watched the movies), and fell in love with the spunky, red-haired Anne-with-an-e, chances are you got it within the first 30 seconds. If not, go grab yourself a copy of Anne of Green Gables.

Bonus tidbit: Tennyson's poem The Lady of Shallot was also the inspiration for the title of Alan Bradley's I Am Half-Sick of Shadows, the fourth book in the Flavia de Luce mysteries.
