Little Women

I loved, loved, loved this book!  I mean, seriously, how did I not read this when I was little?!  It's incredibly sweet, charming and full of wisdom.  Yes, it's a little too sweet at times- did anybody else feel an urge to slap one or more of the characters at some point for being too good?!  No, just me. 

Sigh . . . I always wanted a "Laurie" in my life.

Seriously, it's a great book and full of great pieces of wisdom which are still relevant today.  This is a book I look forward to reading to Coraline or having her read when she can.

I've already put the movie Little Women on my Netflix queue- the one with Christian Bale, because he's the perfect Laurie and I think he's super cute.  And, yes, I know I'm 30.

One of my absolute favorites! I read an 'abridged' version when I was younger and finally read the full version a few years ago. Just seeing the name, "Laurie" makes me feel all warm & fuzzy. I watch the movie at least once a year. Love it.
