Alcott's books were some of the first books that got me into reading. My sister had a lot of them on her bookshelf, and one day I timidly decided to give one a try. And subsequently, I then devoured the rest of them. And even though my ten or eleven-year-old self adored them, I haven't read them again since. Which is definitely sad.
So - that's why, when I saw the blog post about the challenge, I realized I had to read some books by this wonderful author again.
The hard part was picking which ones. But after much thought, I decided on these three:
II. Jack and Jill - A lesser-known one that I never got a chance to read, but sounds like a really sweet book.
III. Under the Lilacs - This is another one I've always wanted to read. Since they're not at my library, I might make an exception to my only-read-real-books rule and read this and Jack and Jill as ebooks. (!)
You should check out this reading challenge, whether you're a fan of LMA or you have no idea who I'm talking about. I'm having fun already and I haven't even started reading.
“That is a good book it seems to me, which is opened with expectation and closed with profit.”
