Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge ... JUNE 2015

This is a challenge checkup point for all participants in the Louisa May Alcott reading challenge this month!

How is everyone doing on their challenge booklist?

Drop me a comment -- Let's discuss!

* By the way, it's NOT to late to join if you haven't begun yet.

So, here's my own LMA challenge update. (I look forward to hearing the progress you've all made on your personal challenges!) Again, here's a quick look at my booklist this month.

Rose in Bloom (1876) •
written by Louisa May Alcott

Reading 'Rose in Bloom' this June for the LMA reading challenge!

Little Women Next Door (2000) •
written by Sheila Solomon Klass

Reading 'Little Women Next Door' this June for the LMA reading challenge!

So, what I have accomplished? Actually, I'm done! I finished Rose in Bloom a few days ago (a new favorite book of mine!!), and breezed through Little Women Next Door because it's a fairly quick read. What's left for me? I just need to review these books and post here on the blog to share my complete thoughts on my challenge books. (FYI -- love both of them!) Stay tuned -- the first review will be up Monday morning.

What book(s) are you reading for the Louisa May Alcott challenge?

* Remember, it can be any book or story penned by the hand of Miss Alcott, or written about her.

    My original plan was to re-read Reisen's "Louisa May Alcott: The Woman Behind Little Women", read Vol. 1 of "Aunt Jo's Scrapbag" from my collection, and find "Eden's Outcasts" (Matteson's book about Louisa and her father). I got side-tracked by "Marmee & Louisa" by Eve LaPlant, so I substituted it for Reisen. Still reading "Eden's Outcasts" isn't an easy read.

    But it has been a great LMA Month!
