The classic of all classics. Heartwarming, charming, pleasant! And I fully appreciate the 90's movie soundtrack as well; it is transcendent. Perfection.
A little EPP today while listening to Little Women♡

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.
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 The story might be a bit outdated but the sense of warmth, support & respect between Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy, Marmee, Mr.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.
Thanks for the tag @RaeLovesToRead ☺️
1. I've read a fair amount. Lately I've been trying to go back and read the ones I skipped in school lol
2. I've had Little Women on my shelf for ages but never read it! Might have to give it a go soon
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
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. All the Christmas Activities; putting our tree up, watching holiday movies while wrapping, making cookies and goodies, taking our baby girl to see Christmas lights and Santa 🎅
2. Hopefully Little Women-- and if I love it making it a tradition.
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.
Thanks for the tag!
1. Yes! Hubby always lets me get books and loves that I'm a reader.
2. I wish...
3. Little Women
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐One of my most beloved and favourite books of my childhood and the only book I have ever re-read multiple times, it stands the test of time for me and is always a delightful read.#louisamalcott#littlewomen #tea_sipping_bookworm #goodreads #litsy #thestorygraph #bookqueens #bookstagram
I‘ll go first:
1. My husband being able to go outside when his self isolation period ends on Friday 😃
2. The Unhoneymooners ...Can‘t wait!
3. I‘d love to talk to Hermione Grainger to see what she really thought of Hogwarts, Harry and Ron 😂
I‘d love to see your answers: @BayouGirl85 @Eggs @starlight97
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 finished my seasonal reread of this wonderful book on Christmas day. Each read is like settling down for a conversation with an old friend.
The March girls always help to lift my spirits and remind me of the important things in life. 💚
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
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.🥧
I loved this book for #ThatsClassic ❤️
I had read it a long time ago so I had forgotten basically everything (including the professor who was amazing!) I found the second part easier to relate to and less preachy, but honestly I didn‘t mind that so much. I enjoyed the family dynamics, the love they all shared, and how they tried to make each other better people. You can‘t blame the boys for wanting to be part of that :D
