This book has been on my TBR for ages, and I‘m glad that I had the chance to read this book! This was an outstanding book about the story of some sisters which has amazed me! I have to say, it took me longer than expected to finish this book, but I thank you @Reyzl for inviting me on this journey!

charl08 Ooh, beautiful cover. 😍 1mo
Reyzl I‘m so happy that you enjoyed it🥰 I love Beth and Laurie❤️ Do you have a favourite sister or character? I recommend the old movie too, @Sharv_Sona (edited) 1mo

Really lovely book, the March sister's bond was so great to see, it was so heartwarming that it felt like you belonged to that family too.
They were so nice to everyone around them and it was so cute to see them treat Laurie like family after finding out he felt lonely because his only company was his “uptight” grandpa.
The sister's character development was great but I‘m very biased towards Amy because she had the best one and she is a cutie.

"She feels it in the air - love, I mean - and she's going
very fast. She's got most of the symptoms - is twittery
and cross, doesn't eat, lies awake, and mopes in corners.
I caught her singing that song he gave her.”

A sometimes touching, sometimes infuriating book. I should have read it when i was younger. The moralizing was pretty blatant.

The first #chunksterchallenge of the year, thanks to everyone who showed me these challenges!
I‘m excited and nostalgic to read this, as the last time I cracked it open was elementary school. It‘s not the biggest book I own, but it‘s step one of the year as I get back into disciplined reading

tokorowilliamwallace Can't wait to see what other challenges you get involved in! Did you make your #roll100 and #bookspin #doublespin lists yet? 5mo
paperwitchs @tokorowilliamwallace not yet but once I learn what to do I will! 5mo
tokorowilliamwallace @paperwitchs For now just write out two lists: one of 100 books you'd like to read this year, and one (which can change every month if you'd like) of 20 you just have been putting off and really need motivation to finish. @TheAromaofBooks post on #bookspin numbers drawn and bingo board are up today. 5mo

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! Welcome to Litsy!! @tokorowilliamwallace tagged you in the February posts for BookSpin & BookSpin Bingo. I have a masterpost about the challenge on my blog (off Litsy) here - https://thearomaofbooks.wordpress.com/bookspin-bookspinbingo-litsy-challenge - feel free to let me know if you have any questions and let me know if you would like to be added to the tag list!! 5mo
paperwitchs Thank you guys so much, sorry I‘m late. I‘ll check it out and probably start in a day or two, it looks like real fun! @TheAromaofBooks @tokorowilliamwallace 4mo
TheAromaofBooks No worries!! I draw new numbers every month (always on the 2nd) so the #BookSpin challenge is very easy to jump in and out of, depending on what is going on with your life. 😁 I added you to the tag list so you'll get tagged in a reminder post a week(ish) before I draw March's numbers, and then you can decide if you want to play along for March!! 4mo

This LMA mug was a gift from a litsy swap.Woe is me, I do not remember who sent it!Since then I have learned to record swaps. 🥴🤯
I have never visited The Orchard,her home.I decided to create a literary self tour of famous women in New England.
Harriet Beecher Stowe, Hartford, Ct
Florence Griswold Museum, Old Lyme, Ct
Bellemy-Ferriday House, Bethlehem, Ct
The first two I have visited but would love to return.

Watched the movie recently and kind of can't get Beth out of my mind. She'll probably be the reason I'll read the book soon.

Major score from the Little Free Library near home. I‘ve formed a habit of checking it every day on my way home from work. Most of the time I‘m able to walk away empty handed. This needed to come home with me. I haven‘t spotted a copyright date on it, but it‘s definitely old and well-loved. 👯‍♀️😍

Well I FINALLY finished! I started reading this in January of 2020 after utterly falling in love with the movie. It‘s been a weird read. The book was a lot longer than i thought. I also found it both boring and not boring enough, which was annoying. I read it on kindle, it wasn‘t dull enough to get me to sleep, but it certainly wasn‘t one I got a great deal of enjoyment reading either. I am forever and always a fan of the movie, however! ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

1. Little Women makes me nostalgic. This is one of the first books that I read on my own when I was a kid. The sisterly love. The joy of childhood. Beautiful friendships. Jo and Laurie. Beth.💝

2. Books written in a foreign setting!

Meg March.

I remember the first time I read this beautiful story and feeling wistful after completing it. Sweet and simpler times. Lovely characters and nostalgic warmth.🥰

For anyone who's wondering what that enchanting song from the trailer of Greta Gerwig's 2019 adaptation is, here it is, Cyrus Reynolds' Finder!

Little Women was one of my favorite reads when I was younger and while I still found it an enjoyable read now I definitely have a stronger opinion on some of the things that go on in the story 😂
Jo is still my favorite of the sisters, I adored her strength and resilience then and still now.

🌻My gran were a voracious reader. And my mother is coming around now that she found a genre she likes.

🌹Little Women 🤫 I've seen the movies so many times and always been meaning to read the book.

Not sure if I should mark this with a spoiler, because it‘s Little Women. Does anyone remember how old the man Jo gets with is in the book? I feel like he was older than what they make him out to be in the newest movie version.

Andrea313 IIRC, Jo writes in a letter home that he's "almost 40". They definitely aged him down in this! 1y
LiteraryinLawrence @Andrea313 Interesting. So on the one hand, I‘m almost 40 now so in a vacuum that age doesn‘t seem AS old as it did when I first read the book? 😋 On the other hand, of course, dating an 18 year old seems outrageous. 1y
Amandajoy @Andrea313 & @LiteraryinLititz I knew it! I thought he was around 40. My husband said I was probably remembering wrong. 1y
Andrea313 @LiteraryinLititz @Amandajoy Yes, it's a pretty uncomfortable age difference! They meet when Jo is 21 and marry when she's 23. So if he's "almost 40", let's give that some wiggle room and say he's 37. Still an age difference of 16+ years! I feel the same way reading some of Austen's work- Marianne and Brandon's age difference in S&S is so cringe-y, and Emma/Knightley are about the same. UGH. 1y

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY!
I took a moment this morning to reflect on some amazing women writers who throughout history whether to allow them to publish, to actually reach their audience etc have had to publish under male pseudonyms. Thank you to each of these women for not giving up, not letting society's expectations and rules for their gender stop them.
