Wondering what to read this February?
Join us for a read-along of Louisa May Alcott's best-loved classic, Little Women which follows the story of the four March sisters: Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy. This is one of the very first books I read while I was growing up (after Little House on the Prairie and Anne of Green Gables). I've read it a few times over the years, but not recently, so I am excited to be doing this challenge. Little Women takes a special place in my heart because it is about four girls and we are four girls in the family who bear several similarities to the March girls in the exact same order too!
