First Line Fridays: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

“Chistmas won’t be Christmas without any presents,” grumbled Jo, lying on the rug.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (1987, Marshall Cavendish)

I decided to share the first line of one of the classics today. I remember the first time I read Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. I was a 12 year old girl who used to spend time reading library books on my bed or in the shadows of the garden. I remember loving the story and thereafter reading the sequel Little Men. I have re-read the novel once since then and have enjoyed a film rendition.

Have you read the story about Jo and her sisters?

  2. Classic!

    Today on my blog I shared the first 2 lines from Until the Mountains Fall by Connilyn Cossette but it’s also my current read so I’ll share the first line from chapter 7 where I am now: “I found my father on the roof, on his knees.” It’s amazing so far! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I have read Little Women! I really loved it. I am Team Bhaer, as some would say ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Here’s the first line of my current read: “People parted around us in the courtyard.” from The Printed Letter Bookshop by Katherine Reay. I’m almost finished with it, and I LOVE it!

  4. It’s always great to reread a classic ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m sharing the opening line from The Secret to Hummingbird Cake by Celeste Fletcher McHale over on my blog today, and I’m currently reading Wickedly Charming by Kristine Grayson. I clicked “buy” on the first line of the sample:

    “Book Fair. The very words of the sign filled Mellie with loathing. Book Fair indeed. More like Book Unfair.”

    Quirky, and it appeals to my sense of humour. I’m halfway through and loving it! Happy reading ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I have not read the book, but I saw the movie years ago. I’m sorry I’m so late this week in participating. Life has just been a bit crazy, but good. Hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend!
