HI! Happy National Dress day, y’all!
When 2019 started I was really excited to think of all of the good books I will read. I really like certain Authors (and Authoress’s) and I have been really liking lots of different ones. I thought I’d share it with y’all, because I always enjoy reading other people’s reading lists.
Here we shall go!
Some of my favorite writers are Louisa May Alcott, L.M. Montgomery, Elizabeth Elliot, and many more, but those are the main ones as of now(:
I have read a lot of L.M.A’s books of late, and I am really enjoying them. I read “An Old-Fashioned Girl” first, and it was the best book I had ever read–until I read Eight Cousins. AHH! I just love it so much. The story can be applied to anyone’s life or age, not just girls.
Rose in Bloom by L.M. Alcott. (The sequel to Eight Cousins) This was on my reading list this year because I’d heard to was a few people’s favorite book. I am working my way through it, gradually, but so far I still love Eight Cousins. (The main character’s name is Rose.) I hope to do a review on them (the first and the sequel) when I finish this second one. Let me know if you’d like that!
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen has been on my reading list for a long time now, but I guess I’ve never got around to it. I love the movie, and my Mom and I have decided that usually the book’s always better than the movie, but I guess I’ll find out!
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell has said to be a great book by a few people, and I can’t wait to find out! I know there’s a BBC movie, but I haven’t seen it, either.
The Inheritance by L.M. Montgomery has also come highly favored among people. There is, too, a movie on this one. I want to read this, too! AHH, SO MANY WONDERFUL BOOKS!
Jo’s Boys by L.M. Alcott is also one I have heard a great deal about. This is one of the sequels to “Little Women.” (There’s also “Little Men.”) I read Little Women awhile back, and I LOVE the movie, (the 1994 version with Winona Ryder and Christian Bale) so I’m excited to see what this one’s like.
Girl of the Limberlost by Gene Stratton Porter is one I’ve started and is on the list for this year. We read Freckles a few years back, and it was one of my favorites at the time. This one is good so far, an very “detailed.”😄
Stepping Heavenward by Elizabeth Printiss is one I have and want to read. It’s a journal from a 16 year old girl until her married years and how her faith grows with her. It sounds good! I’m excited to find out what it’s about and how it goes(:
So far that’s all I have on my list, but you know how it goes; there will be lots more on there, and hopefully lots checked-off by the end of the year!
Thank y’all much for reading! I would love to hear your thoughts, let me know down below!
