Another book down!!! I am enjoying re-reading the Chronicles of Narnia again!!! Love the characters in this book!!! I rated this book a 4 out of 5 stars!!!
King Caspian sets out on a voyage to try to find the great lords banished from Narnia by his uncle and has the unexpected pleasure of the company of King Edmund, Queen Lucy, and their most irritating cousin Eustace. And off they go on the Dawn Treader to the edge of the world where Eustace has a chance to learn manners and the heroic mouse Reepicheep to prove the depth of his courage. Another enjoyable tour of the lands of Narnia and Aslan.
I‘m so happy only a year has passed since Prince Caspian‘s tale rather than a thousand or more years that passed between The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian. So we get Reepicheep the mouse in all his heroic glory! But oh how Eustace gets on my nerves. I‘m enjoying this one almost as much as the former books—I‘m waiting for Eustace to improve his behavior before I cast final judgment on this book in the series.
This one was a big adventure, kept nicely short and never in any way boring. All the different islands had each something new to present! The characters were mostly from the old crew, like Edmund and Lucy, which i liked to read some more about but the real highlights were of course Reepicheep and Eucetace, especially the latter who was so hilarious at the beginning but changed throughout the book for the better!
What a great day! Anticipating the Zoom event of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe Book Club with Patti Callahan, Douglas Gresham, David C Downing, & more of the National Book Festival!
You know, if Ramandu's daughter turned out to be a great queen and starter of a lineage, you'd think Clive could have given her a NAME. #childrenslit
Is it weird that this one was my favorite jaunt through Narnia of the three I've read so far? We follow Edmund and Lucy into Narnia, this time with their insufferable cousin Eustace in tow. He's such a little shit that he's bound to have some character growth and the Pevensies and the crew of the Dawn Treader search far and wide for some of Prince Caspian's father's old friends. This book felt less heavy-handed on the religious undertones
Reading this as an adult I find the story moves along better than it did when I was a child. At the same time I find Reepicheep far more annoying than I did as a child. My favorite part still remains Eustace being turned into a dragon and ultimately becoming a better person. This was my #Bookspin read for the month. #BookspinBingo #NarniaReadalong

I was late reading this one, but I finished just in time to start the next book today and get back on track.
This book was a lot of fun. I absolutely loved that Reepicheep was back too. 💚 I did miss the other siblings, but having Eustace and Prince Caspian helped. Although Eustace frustrated me, he still helped keep the story interesting.
Finished reading The Voyage of the Dawn Treader today 🙌🏼 just in time to catch up for the #narniareadalong 😅
And what a great book!! Weird, I hardly remembered any of it from my childhood, it‘s such a good imaginative story.
And Reepicheep - what a valiant hero 🐭💓💪🏼
Looking forward to The Silver Chair 💫
I didn‘t remember a lot of this one going in, but some of the islands came back to me as they landed. I enjoyed this one, it‘s more like a Gulliver‘s Travels to unique lands (with some Christian mythology thrown in as Aslan continues to make appearances) than a specific mission. An enjoyable read as a series of mini adventures as they search uncharted lands to the east looking for the lost Lords of Caspian‘s father‘s reign.
Finished this for the Narnia read along. So far, this is my favorite of the books that I‘ve read from this series. I‘m not sure why; it just is. As someone already pointed out, there‘s no real tight plot — just Caspian looking for some missing lords from when his father was king; instead, each chapter or two is like its own little mini adventure for the crew.
I couldn't resist and ended up reading the last few chapters this morning to finish this reread early. What a fun adventure!! This book is a little more episodic than the first two books, but I rather enjoyed the way most chapters (or pairs) were their own mini-adventure. A delightful journey!! I'm quite looking forward to The Silver Chair, which is the one I remember the least. Thanks for hosting the #NarniaReadalong @CaffeineAndCandy !!
I thought I recalled this was one of my least favorite in prior readings of this series but I must say it‘s a favorite now. So much so that I had to keep going and finish the adventure a bit early. So thankful the #NarniaReadalong nudged me to reread this series. Can‘t wait til the next one.
Happy to sink into this one for a few chapters, for the #narniareadalong. I remember it being one of my favorites as a kid, but virtually nothing else about it.
I started this tonight for the Narnia read along. Good start.
Finished the first Percy Jackson series, and need to figure out what‘s next in that world. Starting tagged for #NarniaReadalong today. Really need to devote energy to Deep River and Hybrid Church for work reading this week. Poor Jane Jacobs is getting tabled for the moment. I do want to read a little more, to see if I‘m even interested in it, though.
#WeeklyForecast - finishing A Lady's Guide for #LMPBC then reading Parker Pyne for #AgathaChristieClubR2. The Boy is my #NewYearWhoDis book this month and Mansfield Revisited has been on my TBR for a while so this seemed like the perfect time to finally get to it!! Not sure if I will get any further. I've been meaning to read The Raven Boys series for literal years & can't believe they are finally this close to the top of the TBR!!!⬇️
Hey 👋! We start the third book in the #NarniaReadalong tomorrow. As you all know, we are reading them in publication order and not in the series order. I‘m a bit behind and haven‘t made a post for Prince Caspian yet. I hope 🤞 everyone is enjoying the readalong so far. It‘s so great to have you all in this! 💜😘
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis, at least to the point I‘ve read so far (which is about two thirds) has been a really good read! Edmund and Lucy Pevensie are pulled into Narnia once again, this time with their cousin Eustace along for the ride. On the ship the Dawn Treader the trio is welcomed by King Caspian, Reeepicheep, as well as Drinian and his crew. (cont‘d in comments)
I absolutely love this book series. Watching the movie tonight. 😎 #movienight
Thanks for the #Two4Tuesday tag, @QuietlyLaura !
1. 4-year-old Me desperately wanted to be Reepicheep. Adult Me still wouldn‘t mind being Reep. He was my childhood hero.
2. Lots of it, every year, as early as mid-October. I have very little patience with people who romanticize it, even though I try to remind myself that most of them live in places where snow has a very different impact on their lives.
This is my favorite of the Narnia series. This has some of my favorite scenes, like Eustace with the dragon, Lucy and the magic book, the Dufflepuds, the Island of Darkness, and Ramandu's island.
I think this one is about temptation and the grace that follows.
I‘m struggling with rating this. There was much of it that I loved, but it didn‘t keep me turning pages or as interested as the first two. I loved Eustace‘s storyline. The dragon and Deathwater island were probably two of my favorite parts. By the end, though, I was like, “Okay, bye.” 😂 Narnia is still a place I love to be, so a pick this will be as well, for I am remembering what sunshine feels like.

"(By the way, if you are going to read this story at all, and if you don't know already, you had better get it into your head that the left of a ship when you are looking ahead is port, and the right is starboard)"
These pictures and explanations I find when reading are not only welcome but much needed because I always feel lost when reading books that involve navigation/ships/boats or whatever because I know nothing of the sort haha
Far and away, my favorite of this classic series so far. 💚 Adventure, kidnapping, dragons, magic, mystery... what else could you want? ☺️
An excellent adventure. Man the Christian allegory is strong in one lol 😆
Poor Lucy and Edmund 😔
My hold came in.
Reading these in publication order, this is book 3 not 5
Yup, still a favourite. Except maybe the very end bit, where it gets preachy.
