So this time I decided to go with Little woman, I really liked writing this for far from the madding crowd, so I thought I would do this for another classic!

See the synopsis for Little woman here!

Title: Little woman.

Author: Louisa May Alcott.

Format: Ebook.

Genre: Classic, YA, romance.

Before reading:

Honestly this is another classic that I know nothing about. But I’ve been loving all the children’s classics I’ve read so far. I think this will be a cute read!

Another reason for reading this is that when I’m back home I will buy myself the puffin children classics edition, they are gorgeous!

First impressions (4 chapters, I forgot to write this earlier):

It’s a bit slow so far , but I’m really liking the different characters. Especially Jo and Beth. I have to say that I have no idea what direction this book will take, but I’m really eager to continue on. I will predict a 4 star rating for this book.

After reading:

Unfortunately I was a bit disappointed in this book. It was not a bad book at all, I just think it could have been better, and a bit shorter. I really liked the first 2/3 of this book but after that it started to become a bit boring..

All chapters contain their own little ‘story’ which all connect, I really like that style for children books. But I do think there were a bit too many and some didn’t really add anything to the bigger story. Also all the characters were a bit to perfect. Every time they learned they did something wrong, they immediately felt bad and went to do something about it. Which did not feel really realistic.. Beth was my favourite characters, she was so precious, with Jo as a close second. I like that I name the most and ‘least’ perfect character as favourites haha.

I ended up rating this book 3 out of 5 stars. 

Come talk to me!
