I'm Finished.

I just finished reading Little Women. This may not seem like a very important thing to blog about but for me, it is. I have started Little Women more times than I can count. I've even started the movie and had yet to finish that one either. I don't know what it was about Little Women. I wanted to read it. I wanted to enjoy it. I felt that it was a book I would enjoy and yet I could never get past that first Christmas morning. Well, last week, I finished the whole thing and I loved the whole thing. Maybe its the pregnancy. I was so set on finishing the book that I asked for it for Christmas. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. (well, once the sleeping pill set in I had to put it down but that's a different story) I'm proud of myself for the completion and a little ponderous as to why I had so much trouble before. I do have to admit that I'm still getting over Laurie and Jo not getting together. It was the right thing, of course, but I guess I have a thing for unrequited love.

I'm reading a cute book by the same author (Louisa May Alcott).
It was published about 100 yrs after she died because it was "too sensational" for her time. It's called "A Long Fatal Love Chase".
It's really good so far...I'm almost finished!
Don't 'cha just love a good book?

I love Little Women. I always wished that me and my sisters could be as close as they were! Such a wonderful story!

You know, there's a sequel. And then another sequel. And I actually like Eight Cousins (another set of characters) and its sequel Rose in Bloom a bit better.
