My Little Women books that have been well loved.

Rereading and remembering my Grandma -one of the loves of my life! She was a feminist and outspoken and “naughty” 😂♥️✊🏼. FYI there wasn‘t truly a word or even spoken feminist but that‘s what she was. ✊🏼♥️

My daughter got me a new fancy copy I‘ll post it next.

The classic of all classics. Heartwarming, charming, pleasant! And I fully appreciate the 90's movie soundtrack as well; it is transcendent. Perfection.

#Alphabetgame #LetterL @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

I recently reread Little Women and was happily amazed how well this classic holds up. Reading a chapter a day, allowed me to pick up on some of the subtle nuances I'd likely missed in prior readings. Lincoln in the Bardo is a close second choice. I won't say I enjoyed it but was intrigued and captivated by the strange macabre story, which is awesome on audio.

Graywacke I tried Little Women as an adult on audio, but I got impatient. 🫣 (it was a free library loan). Lincoln on Bardo is oddly fantastic. 4mo
kspenmoll I listened to the audio of Lincoln in the Bardo & it was incredible. Really helped me! Little Women- a beloved classic! 4mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Thank you for playing! 4mo
Ann_Reads @Graywacke Maybe reading it via a traditional paperback would help. As with Jane Austen's stories, I found out the hard way (from past reading experiences) Little Women shouldn't be rushed through. The story seems simple but under the layers it isn't. Actually my last reread I listened to the Little Women Dramatic Reading #3 through Librivox.org. Then I usually went back and read the chapter via an ebook. The chapter-a-day schedule really helped. 4mo
Ann_Reads @kspenmoll I don't know if I would have liked Lincoln in the Bardo quite as much if I'd just read it. The audio was definitely a bonus. (edited) 4mo

What can I say about a beloved classic novel, that hasn't already been said? The story might be a bit outdated but the sense of warmth, support & respect between Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy, Marmee, Mr. March & the Laurences, never falls out of fashion. Each time I revisit it, I notice previously overlooked nuances and themes. I think when someone rereads a book it becomes a different story too because the reader has changed along the way. #classic #reread

This book is so heartwarming and a great reminder of the important things in life. I love the authors ability to paint such a vivid picture of every characters personality and how although very different are all very much alike. Sisterhood, family, love, humility, honesty, respect, admiration, are all very present throughout to display the importance of kindness and grace. No questions asked on why this book is considered a classic novel.

I made it to today‘s years old before I read this American classic.

A sweet story about 4 sisters which does get a bit preachy and saccharine at points but that didn‘t detract much from my enjoyment.

Jo was definitely the highlight of this book although Laurie has his moments.

Marmee, one of the best mothers in literature. Love the book, love the movies. I am most fond of this 1994 version. The music, original score by Thomas Newman, is fantastic.

I have watched both the 2019 (top) and the 1994 (bottom). Personally I like the 1994 version much more than the 2019 version for a number of reasons, including that the 1994 version cast Laurie better than the 2019 version. So of these two versions, which do you like better? #littlewomen #movieadaptations

I rewatch and reread Little Women every December in memory of my Bubbe -who loved the original movie which I currently cannot find, however, the Winona I watched last night is my favorite. (I did not like the new one at all, story was fine acting…notsomuch.) I consider it a Christmas movie 😂🎄♥️🤷🏻‍♀️

#wintergames2021 Christmas Tradition #mistletoemaniacs

Bookzombie I haven‘t ever watched the Winona Ryder one, but I always loved the one with June Alyson and Elizabeth Taylor. It makes me feel Christmasy too. Note: I have not read Little Women yet so I can‘t compare to book. 12mo

Finished Little Women for a book club last month. Had such a great discussion. I definitely thought I‘d read this as a young adult, but I‘m fairly certain I had only watched the movie version 🙊 I‘m glad I read this, but it was dense. The poems and newsletter, I could have done without. Overall 4⭐️

1. Hanging out with Jo and the sisters would be a fun way to quarantine. Dressing up, reading, playing music in that place and time.
2. Taking walks even on these cold days. Listening to a book podcast, or music or just thinking.
3 Under the Tuscan Sun was a good escape. Read that one a few years ago.

1. I have a few! The 1994 version of “Little Women” with Winona Ryder. I just adore Jo March and my daughter Josephine is named for her. Another great one is “Misery.” Kathy Bates is simply phenomenal in it!

2. I would love to see “The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue” on the big screen. It would have beautiful cinematography and would be a tear-jerker. I love crying from movies. Haha.

It's old-fashioned and preachy, but I never get tired of Alcott's fiercely feminist story and four of my fave ladies: Meg, so good and proper, yet a little vain; Queen Jo, "a girl who was rapidly shooting up into a woman, and didn't like it" (was ever anything so relatable?); Beth aka Little #Tranquility, so-called by Useless Mr. March; and Amy, "a most important person- in her own opinion at least." #BlueCover #JumpIntoJanuary #InspiredNewYear

I need to give up on this book. I put it aside and tried to return to it several times, only to discover that I wasn't much interested in coming back to it. Although it has its heartwarming moments, generally it's much too didactic for me.

Little Women is a well-loved classic. Unfortunately, it failed to win me over. For me, a classic is a story that stands the test of time, one that contains characters or situations that resonate through time. Little Women felt every bit its age, and rather than a fully fleshed out novel it reads more like a series of vignettes about the March family. It is cozy and quaint, but just far too old-fashioned for my tastes. ⭐️⭐️ #ThatsClassic

AlaMich I didn‘t even like it that much when I read it as a kid. I remember thinking it was sort of dull. 2y
MsMelissa @AlaMich this was my first time reading it and I have wondered if I may have felt differently had I read it was I was a kid, but I doubt it. I also found it dull, and that large sections could be skipped without missing a thing. 2y

Re-read this for November #thatsclassic and I‘m so glad I did. Sure, it‘s a bit preachy and slow paced at times, but when it‘s good it‘s so very good —a warm, cozy comfort read with many enduring truths that make it a classic. It was the perfect #audiobaking accompaniment for making my Thanksgiving pies.🥧

MsMelissa I‘m struggling to finish 😢 I really don‘t like it. It reads more like a series of vignettes than a novel. 2y
