Next up which sadly I didn't get to at Christmas as planned.I've never read this before, I've seen the Wynonna Ryder and Greta Gerwig movie productions and finally decided to read the book. After reading the forward I find myself annoyed that Louisa May Alcott's father was friends with Emerson and Thoreau, I was under the impression she started from dirt poor nothing. Alas she had some major white privilege going

I like to read Little Women this time of year because of the Christmas scenes. I still love this book but it did grate on me this read that the women were doing just fine but when the men came home from wherever they were they felt the need to lecture #FreeJo

‘Enthusiasm is the greatest asset in the world. It beats money, power, and influence.‘

I‘ve never read Little Women (but I will be reading it in November!) but from the little I know about this novel it seems the March sisters have much enthusiasm for one another and for life 😊

Want to play @Andrew65 ? Check out @KVanRead thread for the rules.

Finally reading this one! I really want to see the new movie and figure I should read the book first. This is a very old copy that was my grandmother's and has illustrations. I don't know the copyright date because it appears to be in Roman numerals. 🤣

TheAromaofBooks Those Roman numerals get tricky when there are like 8 of them in a row!! 😂 2y

Can you believe I‘d never read this before? Growing up I always heard about it as a great book about sisters, which didn‘t feel relevant to me. Anyway, now that I‘ve read it I can see why it‘s a classic, although I was not expecting how overtly preachy it is!

Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhh how is this book so good?!?!? I somehow didn't read it until I was an adult, so this is only my second time visiting it, but it's just perfection. I'm so happy there's a bildungsroman prompt because this was revolutionary when it was written for showing girls growing up. #teamamy

"You have been running,Jo.How could you?When will you stop such romping ways?"said Meg reprovingly,as she settled her cuffs and smoothed her hair,with which the wind had taken liberties.
"Never till I'm stiff and old and have to use a crutch.Don't try to make me grow up before my time Meg.It's hard enough to have you change all of a sudden. Let me be a little girl as long as I can"-

Don't run!It really sucked to be a woman,I couldn't love Jo more

I finished this one a few days ago! It's a wonderful book and I still can't believe it was written in the 1860s. It did not feel much outdated and the characters are very relatable and lovable! No wonder this is a classic.

I finally got to see Little Women today and I LOVED it! It was so well done. It stays true to the text in many ways but also offers some updates that suit the characters and the moment. It's one of the best literary adaptations I've seen in ages. Greta Gerwig is a genius!
It's made me want to re-read the book. In part so I can appreciate the original text again AND so I can better understand how she re-imagined it. Seriously, so good!

My sister wants to start reading more by buddy reading with me. This is huge on so many levels, but my favorite thing about this is it'll be a way to bond with her even though we live in opposite parts of the country. These two books will be our first books together.

Does anyone else buddy read with their siblings?

Reviewsbylola I have a book club that two of my sisters and my mom are in. My third sister lives out of the country, so we do our own family mark up book club, where we all pick a book, write our comments as we read, and then pass it down the line when we‘re done. It‘s fun to see what the others have written. 3y
GloVerdino I very rarely buddy read with my sisters because we all swap books, every time we together we have stacks to pass on to someone else! 3y
cassiopia @GloVerdino oh, that's a shame, but your way sounds really fun though! If only my sister wasn't 1500 miles away from me. My own fault for moving though, oh well 🤷‍♀️ 3y
cassiopia @Reviewsbylola that sounds like so much fun! I kind of did a same thing when I sent the books to my sister. I stuck random post it notes in the pages with little "love" messages. I can't for her to come across them ? 3y
