An Old-Fashioned Girl
I adore this book, it's second only to Little Women. The story is straightforward enough, but it leads you to think about a working woman's place in the 19th century and the pitfalls of idleness, as well. I find the heroine quite inspirational! And it reminds you to be careful when riding your velocipede :)

Jack and Jill
Not as good as An Old-Fashioned Girl or even Under the Lilacs. Louisa doesn't seem to be very invested in these characters, though Jill's back injury is poignant enough. All the girls pretend to be missionaries to improve their families and selves. I actually like those parts, it's nice to hear about their self improvement. But this book lacks a spark.

Under the Lilacs
A usual Louisa May Alcott story about children and their scrapes. However it's more interesting than some because of the performing dog and the boy who ran away from the circus.

Louise de la Valliere
The Three Musketeers saga has been perfect for Daily Lit reading -- so many little plots and intrigues to keep up with. I love how devious Aramis has become.

The Vicomte de Bragelonne
This is such a fun read. <br/><br/>Note that you'll want to read the pieces of this story in order: 1) The Vicomte de Bragelonne; 2) Ten Years Later; 3) Louise de Valliere; 4) The Man in the Iron Mask.
