Out of all my favorite classics, Little Women has got to be my favorite. Maybe it’s the family dynamic, or how we follow each of their stories, but I just adore this book.
And have you seen the movie adaptation with Florence Pugh? Handclaps all around. Anywho, if you love this book as much as I do and want to find books like Little Women then you’ve come to the right place.

The Spring Girls by Anna Todd
The Spring Girls by Anna Todd is a modern-day retelling of Little Women. It’s practically a spitting image of the novel – bound deep with roots of sisterhood, adventure, and self-discovery. The Spring family – four sisters along with their father and mother – live on a New Orleans military base. Struggling to build lives they can be proud of and lift them out of their stationed life, the Spring sisters will undergo a year of life changes that will determine what their futures can become. With plenty of sass, romance, and drama, The Spring Girls revisits Louisa May Alcott’s classic Little Women, and brings together themes of love, war, adolescence, and family into the language of the twenty-first century.
