It‘s been a while since I‘ve been on Litsy, which is why I‘m making it a goal this 2020 to be more active on here!

Currently Reading: The Chronicles of Narnia

ChelseaM6010 @AshleyHoss820 They‘re pretty good! I flew through the first two books but I‘m dragging on “The Horse And His Boy” 2mo
AshleyHoss820 @ChelseaM6010 I haven‘t read the whole series since I was probably Zoey‘s age (11)! Maybe I‘ll read them again and see how they hold up! I know The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe does because I‘ve read that over and over...😂😊 2mo

Just finished PaulieAnn‘s 1st chapter book It puts her to sleep every time I crack it open! Not sure if that means she likes it or not, but I found it very charming! I‘m looking forward to reading the series! It was such a pleasant surprise when the hospital librarian brought us some books to choose from and I happened to pick a book which had a main character that shared a name with my sweet girl! Spelled differently but still very cool! 💘✨

I got brought this set of books by my father when i was about 7/8 years old, and i only completed reading the collection this year at the age of 21!

I enjoyed the stories for the most part, I did find 'The horse and his boy' quite a drag to get through out of all of them, and i think the one i enjoyed the most was 'The silver chair.'

I didn't expect the books to end how they did, though it should have been expected due to the religious aspects.

“‘Quick!‘ said Peter. ‘There‘s nowhere else,‘ and flung open the wardrobe. All four of them bundled inside it and sat there, panting, in the dark.

‘O-o-oh!‘ said Susan suddenly. And everyone asked her what was the matter.

“I‘m sitting against a tree,‘ said Susan, ‘and look! It‘s getting lighter - over there.‘”

LiterRohde @KatieDid927 After saying these are the only real covers and this is the only way to read them, and while I stand by those statements, I do feel a little like a metaphorical old guy on a metaphorical lawn telling some metaphorical kids to get off. And yet sorry, not sorry. 9mo

How is it that when hundreds of thousand of people (mostly women, mostly queer) do it for dozens of years, yet it never gets recognized as actual writing but when A MAN does it, it‘s newsworthy?

You find yourself in front of seven identical doors. A voice from above tells you: “The seven doors lead to seven places:
Narnia, Neverland, Wonderland, Hogwarts, Camelot, Middle Earth, and Westeros.” Which door do you go through?

First, I‘d wonder why I was hearing voices, then I‘d pick Narnia!

What would be your choice?

This is the first time I've read The Magician's Nephew all the way through and honestly I'm crushed that I didn't discover the magic of Narnia before! I devoured every page. I could picture all the scenes. Everything was so well written. So simple yet so deep. I just want to go back to page one and experience it all over again!
