I have sweet, sweet memories of my mom reading the Little House books to me as a little girl. I also have great memories of watching the TV series on sunny afternoons (I’m currently collecting the series on DVD!) Needless to say, the books are a very special part of my childhood. So I’m extremely excited to join this read-along.
Here is the schedule:
January – Little House in the Big Woods
February – Little House on the Prairie
March – Farmer Boy
April – On the Banks of Plum Creek
May – By the Shores of Silver Lake
June – The Long Winter
July – Little Town on the Prairie
August – These Happy Golden Years
September – The First Four Years
October – On the Way Home
November – West from Home
December – Pioneer Girl/ A Wilder Rose by Susan Wittig Albert (we are going to read one each of these and then both if we have time. You are welcome to choose either one or any other book related to Laura Ingalls Wilder)
If you don’t have a set of the books, you can get the entire box set HERE.
Reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s classic series will count towards the Classics Club Women’s Classic Literature Event.
UPDATE: By request, I made a printable list for this read-along if you’d like to use it! 🙂

- January- A classic you’ve always wanted to read- Start the year off with a bang!
- February- A classic you’ve always dreaded reading- Get that book out of the way… and who knows! You may end up loving it!
- March- A classic you’ve been recommended- We all have those
- April- A classic you’ve seen the movie/miniseries/TV show of- If you’re like me you’ve probably seen quite a few film versions before being able to read the book. It’s time for that book to get read!
- May- An American classic
- June- A British classic
- July- A European classic (non-British)
- August- A modern classic- Up to your interpretation
- September- A children’s classic
- October- A classic by a female author
- November- A classic by a male author
- December- A classic written under a pseudonym- If you don’t know which books were written under pseudonyms here’s a few names to help you out. Jane Austen wrote her books under a pseudonym (by a lady) as did the Bronte sisters (published their books under male pseudonyms), George Elliot (real name Mary Ann Evans) and Agatha Christie also wrote a few books under the Pseudonym Mary Westmacott. Men who also have written under Pseudonyms are Mark Twain (real name Samuel L. Clemens) and Lewis Carroll (real name Charles Lutwidge Dodgson). I’m sure there’s more out there but there’s a few to start you out.
My Classics Club deadline is getting closer and this will help me pick up the pace!

Classics Clubbers are reading classic literature by the lady authors up through December 31, 2016.
I’m really excited because I have several books on my Classic Club List that were written by women that I’d like to read next year.
