Can't-Wait Wednesday: Meg & Jo

Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings and helps us spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating!

Meg & Jo
Virginia Kantra
Expected publication date: December 3, 2019
The timeless classic Little Women inspired this heartwarming modern tale of four sisters from New York Times bestselling author Virginia Kantra.

The March sisters—reliable Meg, independent Jo, stylish Amy, and shy Beth—have grown up to pursue their separate dreams. When Jo followed her ambitions to New York City, she never thought her career in journalism would come crashing down, leaving her struggling to stay afloat in a gig economy as a prep cook and secret food blogger.

Meg appears to have the life she always planned—the handsome husband, the adorable toddlers, the house in a charming subdivision. But sometimes getting everything you’ve ever wanted isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

When their mother’s illness forces the sisters home to North Carolina for the holidays, they’ll rediscover what really matters.

One thing’s for sure—they’ll need the strength of family and the power of sisterhood to remake their lives and reimagine their dreams. - from Goodreads
I'll admit, I've never read Little Women - although I do plan to!  But I love retellings and I like that the story is set in modern times.


  1. Ahhh! I NEED this book! It sounds like a perfect retelling and I can't wait to read it, too. Thanks for featuring it.

  2. This sounds so good! Hope you get a chance to read it soon.

  3. As soon as I saw the title I knew it was a Little Women retelling and I approve! :D

  4. This sounds great! I loved Little Women!

  5. I had my eye on this one, but decided I had too many other commitments at that time. I do hope to read it after it comes out. I read some really great reviews for it, and I am interested in seeing how the author modernized Meg and Jo

  6. This sounds like an interesting retelling! I'm always curious about these modern Little Women retellings, though I'm not sure if I've actually read one, only the original--I should check this one out. I hope you enjoy it!

  7. Oooh! This sounds like a cute read! Great pick!

    Here’s my WoW!

  8. I'm really excited for this one too. I'm hoping I'll have time to re-read Little Women before I get to this one because I honestly don't remember a lot of it.

  9. This one looks really cute! I hope you enjoy it!

  10. I've never read Little Woman, but I just watched the Friends episode where Joey does! (Rachel reads The Shining or something, and they're trying to see who's book is better.) Well, I wouldn't recommend watching that episode if you don't want both books completely spoiled for you, haha.

    You CWW is on my TBR as well! <3

  11. I tried to read Little Women many many years ago but to be honest I was bored senseless. LOL A modern retelling sounds a lot more entertaining. :)

  12. This sounds adorable! I love Little Women. I feel like it's becoming popular again with the new movie coming out!


I'm so glad you stopped by, and I would love to hear your thoughts! Comments are always greatly appreciated!
