My sister started a book club with our mom and sisters and it’s been really fun to read and discuss together. This is the next book on our list. I wish I had a prettier copy of this book, but Little Women is one of my all time favorites. I first read it in fifth grade because my mom told me that I was a lot like Jo and suggested that I learn about her temperament. As it turns out, it was a great suggestion. This is one that I highly suggest reading aloud with your grade school children. #littlewomen#louisamayalcott#readalouds#readingtheclassics
I really want to finally finish Little Women this winter. I’ve read about half of this book a few years ago, but I ended up putting it down and just never finished it. I was really enjoying it and I tried picking it up at the beginning of the year, but I just couldn’t read it then. The goal is maybe after Christmas and before New Years. Maybe it’ll be my last book of 2017.
I have a lot of Christmas books I want to read after Thanksgiving. I have five Christmas books either at home or being shipped to my parent’s house. I have to wait a few weeks to get those because I ordered them from Book Depository, but they’ll be here before Christmas.
So look forward to seeing a good amount of Christmasy photos after Thursday!
Qotd: Anyone else reading Christmas or other holidays books for the winter season? If so, what are you planning to read?
Aotd: I am crazy excited to read the Nutcracker by E. T. A. Hoffman. It’s my favorite winter story and I really want to see the ballet.

These eight women were ahead of their time in more than one field. Compassion is a sign of vision, of seeing beyond our daily life, taking the perspective of the ones more vulnerable than us. It's a beautiful trait these amazing women all shared.

I feel extremely guilty about not loving this book, both my mother and sister love it and recommended wholeheartedly, I probably missed the window of opportunity in my younger years to enjoy it like they do, I found it to moral, to virtuous. Another confession is that I did not listen to the whole audiobook, I skipped the chapters about Meg’s married life and Amy’s Romance with Laurie, I really wanted to get to the end. 20 down 20 to go!! #Books2017#Livros2017 •___________________________________________•
