Rambling on about books...and a movie ticket giveaway! Little Women: A Modern Retelling

My idea was to share how this love affair began.  You see, I was going to write just a bit about my passion for all things books. After a bit of rambling on about my love of books, I was then going to find a way to segue from talking about a classic I read as a young girl to introducing a movie that is a modern retelling of said classic...releasing in theaters later this month...Little Women: A Modern Retelling.

a modern adaptation of the classic book Louisa May Alcott
But the 'just a bit' became several paragraphs and was on track for becoming a full-blown article...without mention of the movie. No surprise there. So I've decided to just talk just a bit about the movie here.
She is too fond of books, it has turned her brain.   
                             ~Louisa May Alcott
I can totally relate to that quote! Books like Little Women tend to make us stop and take a deeper look at the way we view ourselves and the world around us. Books have deeply impacted my sense of right and wrong, taken me on exciting adventures to new lands, and given me insight into the way others think that is profoundly different than my own way of thinking. Reading has shown me glimpses of characters who portrayed such traits as valor or courage or chivalry. 
But enough about books for now...


You can check back later to read the article on my love of books and how it all began and where it has taken me. 

Also, next week I will have a review of the movie on the blog...so if you haven't made up your mind to see it, be sure to check back here to see if it sounds like your cup of tea.

    2. You are entered! Yay! I think when you see the movie you will want to go back and read the book! Also...you can see the 1994 Version(not a modern retelling but closer to the book) with Wynona Ryder to get a feel for the book.
      blessings!

    1. Hi Noah,
      Thanks for stopping by. I used to watch movies with my mother too. Now I watch them with my daughter. We'll be watching the 1994 version with my daughter tonight.
      She loved that version.

    2. You are entered! Apparently you either went back and entered or rafflecopter was slow in showing your entry. Either way...good luck and blessings!

  5. This is one of my favorites. PBS just did a wonderful version. I am a little sceptical of the modernization of this wonderful classic but I am willing to give it a try. Can’t wait to read your review.

    1. I read the book so long ago, I barely remember it. So I've been digging and doing a little research on it to tweak my memory. Sad...I must re-read soon.
      I hope that you go see the movie in theaters on the 28th!
      blessings!

    1. Me too...but I barely remember it. I read it so so long ago. I must re-read it soon. If you see the movie(good luck with the contest), let me know how you think it compares to the book(other than the fact that it is a modern take on the book).
      blessings!
