My pick for this Saturday is a favorite of mine.

Here is my Saga Saturday Selection:

Little Women
I adore this book written by author Louisa May Alcott. It is such a great story about family, friendship, and love. The story is about the life and relationships of the four March sisters. I can especially relate, as I have 4 sisters of my own, which makes it special for me. I can identify a little bit with each of the sisters, but mostly the character of Jo. She is the main protagonist of the story, Jo is a very passionate person and writer. The story follows her and her sisters through many joys, adventures, and tragedies.

This books is so delightfully old fashioned, which is one of the things I love most about it. I know there are so many people out there who love and cherish this heartwarming book as much as I do.

I love chocolate and orange! Try adding a bit of orange extract, zest of orange, or orange syrup/liqueur to your next mocha or hot chocolate. It is simply heaven.

Little Women as many know, was also made into a movie three times, once in 1933, again in 1949 and lastly in 1994. I think the book is best, which sort of goes without saying.lwwp
However, I loved all of the movies that were made as well.

 

Have you read Little women,
or perhaps seen any of the movie adaptations?

Share your thoughts.

Fun Fact: Little Women was originally published in two volumes
in 1868 and 1869.

  1. You picked a home run book. I’m lucky to live close to Concord, MA and have toured her house. My favorite movie version was not either of the ones you posted. It was black and white, not Katherine Hepburn. It was marvelous!

  2. I can’t believe I have never read Little Women – my older sister read it and loved it when we were girls. I guess I was too busy playing with my Barbies and climbing trees. I’m going to have to get this on my list now!

  3. Little Women is my all time favourite book. I still have my very worn copy from so long ago. I saw the movie with Winona Rider and the one with Elizabeth Taylor which I enjoyed as well. Chocolate and orange is the perfect combination.
