I finally read Little Women!! It was ok, but I didn't love it. Probably if I had read it when I was younger, I might have enjoyed it more this time around. Nevertheless, I'm excited for the Greta Gerwig adaptation coming out soon! (And yes, I bought the t-shirt before reading the book. It's so cute!)

I'm glad this is my online book club's December read, as I was wanting to finally read it before the movie adaptation hits theaters this Christmas! I'm a huge fan of some of the cast members so I will definitely be seeing it in theaters. Anyone else need to read the book before they see the movie? 😅🙋🏽‍♀️

Princess-Kingofkings I'm reading it as well. 5d

Right, work with me here...

I almost drew a blank. The only thing #HeyHay made me think of was the 1980s song Hey Little Girl by Icehouse, so I was trying to think of something with Little Girl in the title and ended up with Little Women.... Most convoluted response yet?

I am probably one of the only women I know who does not love this book. I thought it was a bore as a kid and my opinion has only marginally changed as an adult. It‘s an American classic about four impoverished sisters growing up during the Civil War and after. It‘s based on Alcott‘s own life, and apparently, she didn‘t much like her own story! https://cannonballread.com/2019/09/little-women-elcicco/

If you‘re going to read Little Women for the first time, you need to find an edition with a decent introduction. I know not everyone reads the introduction first, but in this case it's important. I would have been adrift without a prior understanding of Louisa May Alcott‘s background and her politics and her motivations behind writing Little Women.

This is the book equivalent of comfort food. I especially enjoyed the second part, as the girls grew up and their individual stories and characteristics become more developed.

I read and liked this book before I was ten. Decided to reread before the new movie, since I wasn‘t sure what I remembered from the book and what was actually the Winona movie (which I love).

While I did enjoy this audio, I think maybe the book is just a bit too sugary sweet and preachy for grown-up me. I still love Jo, but was disappointed with the way her character ends up... the whole ending seems like kind of a cop out. 😬🤷🏻‍♀️

⭐️⭐️⭐️

sudi I bought this book recently because i wanted to read it before the movie too. But i haven't read this previously, this will be the first. 4mo

“She wondered what the business was that brought Mr. Bhaer to the city, and finally decided that he had been appointed to some great honor, somewhere, but had been too modest to mention the fact. If she had seen his face when, safe in his own room, he looked at the picture of a severe and rigid young lady, with a good deal of hair, who appeared to be gazing darkly into futurity, it might have thrown some light upon the subject...”
