22. Favourite festive scene
Little Women was the first ‘grown up’ book I ever took out of the library. I remember feeling completely enthralled by Jo, Beth, Meg and Amy’s journey into adulthood in a small New England town. Although a reread is an absolute must as my memories nowadays largely centre around the heartwarming 90s film adaptation, it is the frosty ice skating mishaps and Christmas scenes around the piano that chiefly remain within my mind.
