Tarissa at In the Bookcase hosts the Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge in June. You can read all the particulars here. She’s also offering a nice little prize here.
Louisa is one of my favorite authors, so I am happy to be joining in again. I plan to read:
- The Mother-Daughter Book Club by Heather Vogel Frederick, a modern story about four girls who read through Little Women with their moms.
- Eight Cousins by Louisa
- Rose in Bloom, the sequel to Eight Cousins, if there’s time.
I’ve read Little Women multiple times, Little Men and Jo’s Boy’s just a few, but some of Louisa’s other books only once. So I wanted to reread a couple of those this time.
If you’ve wanted to read, or reread, something by or about Louisa, now is the perfect time!
I think all the ones you’ve listed are new to me. I look forward to reading your thoughts!
