The book is The Princess and the Goblin.   It was a great book I read that when I was 13.    I didn't even know the IF had that book in their collection.
Beautiful faithful Nargony.
Thanks Emily!

It was given to Olga in 1903 by her aunt Irene. The book was found among her possessions in Yekaterinburg.

I was very excited when I heard Olga had read The Princess and the Goblin. I wonder if she would have liked the movie.  :P

Anastasia's Favorite book?
« Reply #52 on: July 18, 2010, 06:19:26 PM »
Hello! Does anyone happen to know  what Ana's favorite book was? I recall reading that Olga preferred Les Miserables, but I have no idea about Ana's.
You are filled with anguish
For the suffering of others
And no one's grief
Has ever passed you by
You are relentless
Only towards yourself
Forever cold and pitiless
But only if you could look upon
Your Own sadness From a distance
Oh, how you would pity yourself
How sadly you would we

I read somewhere that she liked a book called The Millionare Girl, but I don't know anything about it, i.e. what the plot was, who wrote it etc. I researched it a little bit, but didn't find anything.  ???

The whole "Millionaire Girl" thing was only something I've seen stated on the My Name Is Anastasia website.

Obviously, you're not going to find any source direct from the familiy where it says, "My favorite book ever is _______."

They read a lot of books so it would be too hard to say for sure. Anastasia read The Millionaire Girl but so did the rest of the family. No telling what her favorite book was.

What Holly said. (Same goes for Olga and Les Miserables.)

It's a detective story by Arthur Williams Marchmont.

A detective story sounds like something Anastasia would like; wouldn't you think so?

Definitely--I can see her reading it and wanting to go on a devious adventure!

Any idea of what the plot was?
