Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge Conclusion

Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge Conclusion

2012 Summer reading challenge hosted at

I did it! I made my goal and added one extra book despite not knowing about the challenge until late in the game.  I just loved The Little Women Letters! It was nice to read a retelling of a classic book without it being the identical plot rehashed or the characters not behaving like the author created them. I liked meeting a new family similar to the March family and a modern woman like Jo to relate to. I enjoyed the mysteries for a fun summer read and learning more about the Alcotts as a family. The stories are a bit far-fetched but it shows that Louisa was an intelligent and capable woman who refused to fit the ideal. I have always admired her and I am happy to see others getting to know one of my favorite authors for the first time or rediscovering her and her books.
