The Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge

Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge

I finally found a copy of Old Fashioned Girl in Powell’s in Portland 2 1/2 years ago. The Louisa May Alcott Challenge is the perfect time to re-read it.

My posts are a little off schedule this week due to the unexpected change of computers. I can’t believe how long it takes to transfer files and get a new computer all put to rights. Its like moving house only less exciting and more frustrating.

This is just a quick post because I have to share this lovely little blog I found and the Louisa May Alcott reading challenge going on there.  In The Bookcase: A place where books belong. Hop on over have a look around and join us.

Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge ... JUNE 2016

As the challenge includes both books by and books about Alcott I am choosing as my selection:

  • An Old-Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott
  • Marmee & Louisa: The Untold Story of Louisa May Alcott and Her Mother by Eve LaPlante
Marmee & Louisa: The Untold Story of Louisa May Alcott and Her Mother

The Louisa May Alcott Reading challenge is the perfect reason to finish reading this dual biography.

It is already the 15th but I’ll give it my best shot. I would love to hear what others are reading!

    Oo I’m so excited, I love L M Alcott!! I’ve read quite a few of her books, ‘Little men’, ‘Eight Cousins’ and ‘Jack and Jill’ being among my favourites.
    ‘Little Women Abroad: The Alcott Sisters’ Letters from Europe, 1870-1871′ is a book I’d dearly love to read and own but we’re looking around the £30 mark so I was so excited to learn about ‘Marmee and Louisa’ and have just ordered a second hand copy!

      I love ‘Eight Cousins’ and ‘Jack and Jill’ too, it is rare to find people who know more than Little Women and Little Men.
      I’m ashamed to say I have read few biographies of Alcott mostly because I was limited to what my local library contained. But now with the internet I need to pick up my game and start learning more about my favourite writers. Its a good way to keep motivated.

    Hi Amber,
    Thanks for linking up. I’m sooo glad you’re on board with the reading challenge this month — that’s great! And you’ve made some excellent book choices. Now you and I both get to read An Old-Fashioned Girl together. 🙂

    I have not yet read Marmee & Louisa, but am keeping it in mind — maybe on my list for next summer’s challenge. There’s still so much of Alcott I have yet to cover, even though I’m an avid fan of hers.

    Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on these books!
