The Emily books! I made the mistake of reading those AT THE SAME TIME as reading the Anne books the first time I read both of them. There are still bits that get confused in my mind.
LOL yes I imagine that could happen. I think my favorite thing about these books is that they sort of grew up with me, or I grew up with them. When I was little, the first book was my favorite... the second and third didn't make much impact on me. Then as a teenager, the second book was obviously the best - Emily of New Moon was cute but childish, and the third had too much angst. Now, of course, even though the first two books have a special place in my heart, I identify the most with her in Emily's Quest.

(Still, even when she's older, the Dean thing still creeps me out a little.)

That's a series I need to reread again because I haven't read them since I was young so I totally know what you mean about those later books being angsty.

(* Okay I'm not positive the books are set in the 20s but it's around there somewhere.)
They're set around one of the wars... I just can't remember which one it is. I think it's WWI so in and around the 20s. Close enough for me!
