Closing out the Louisa May Alcott challenge for 2019

Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge

Readers and fellow challenge-participants,

The time has come to close down the 2019 Louisa May Alcott reading challenge. We're done!

Did you read everything on your Alcott challenge list?

This month I got to experience an intriguing mystery which (fictionally) starring as lead detective, Louisa and the Missing Heiress <--check out my review, and all of the following review links too. Then I had the chance to read The Little Women Treasury, which is an AMAZING resource, you guys! Everyone who loves Little Women should get a copy. My selection for the month of a book actually written by Miss Alcott was The Inheritance, her very first novel -- and it wasn't even published until 21 years ago, if you can imagine that! Lastly, I finished up with a quick read of Meg Makes a Friend, a children's tale that introduces young readers to the March family. All in all, I loved my reads this month... and I hope you enjoyed yours!

Reading 'Louisa & the Missing Heiress' this June for the LMA reading challenge! Reading 'Little Women Treasury' this June for the LMA reading challenge! Reading 'The Inheritance' this June for the LMA reading challenge! Reading 'Meg Makes a Friend' this June for the LMA reading challenge!

What did you read this month?

THANK YOU to EVERYONE who participated in the reading challenge. I appreciate you all for making this a fun and spectacular reading month. By the way, if you haven't finished your posts or reviews about the LMA books you got to read this month, that's okay — the link-up widget will still be open a while for any last words on the subject that you might have to share.

And in closing, I'll give you all some words of wisdom, from our literary friend...

"By gentle words and silent acts of kindness, he had won her reverence and her trust, which now had deepened into woman's truest, purest love."
- Louisa May Alcott, The Inheritance

See you next June! Or, perhaps in November & December... in which I'll be hosting the 4th annual Literary Christmas reading challenge!

  1. It's been fun revisiting Louisa this month! The only problem is that now I want to reread all her books. :-) So I am looking forward to next year already. I've linked up each of my individual reviews. I didn't really do a wrap-up post except to mention what I'd read in my end-of -June musings here: Thanks for hosting this once again!
