Book: The Silver Chair (Glimfeather!)
Song: Hedwig‘s Theme
I'm starting to do "chair" book reviews for our blog at work (I work for a chairmaker). Any recommendations? I'm qualifying any book with "Chair" in the title and books about chairs in significant ways - but they definitely don't have to be nonfiction.
Also, I read the tagged book many times (big CS Lewis fan). Soooooo good.
I thought that I‘d be annoyed that the annoying Eustace got into Narnia again, rather than the poor Pevensie children. But actually, I enjoyed this book. It wasn‘t as charming as the previous two, but it had the great character of Puddleglum which made up for that 😁
Oh this series is suddenly getting a little bit dark and a bit more adult. This story was full of lessons, deception and darkness. With one more to go in this series, I‘m not sure what to expect. The light hearted adventures are really no more. Still a great read, and even though Lion, Witch and Wardrobe is completely different, I think this one has tied for fave of the series.
My computer decided to do a massive update right now so taking a forced break from work and reading the tagged book. After this one only 1 more #ChroniclesOfNarnia book to go! So glad I am finally reading this series. #2018ReadingGoal
#Burely is currently losing his teeth and teething like crazy and is not too thrilled today. 🙁
5⭐️ReRead, Audiobook and Physical copy 💙It seems that with each book in the series, it gets better and better! I have decided Not to pick a favorite until I have finished rereading the series, because as of right now this has taken the place of favorite 😂Thankful for SCRIBD and awesome narrators.
I'm re-reading AKA listening to the audiobooks of the Chronicles of Narnia as an adult and boy do I find some of it really heavy handed religious allegory. I definitely don't love the books after Aslan told Lucy she was too young to go to Narnia. HOW CRUEL! Also I'm pretty sure these are just the old books on tape digitalized and there's a different narrator for each book. It's kind of annoying.
The other day I attempted color coding my shelf. Here is the result. These don't include my library loans, current reads, and exiled books. I'm not sure I like it, but I promise if I ever write a book, the spine will be a bold color. I don't want anyone ripping their hair out over neutrals 😂 #colorinthetitle #splashintosummerreads
I don't know if I have made it harder for myself or what, but it might have been a mistake reading all the Narnia novels one after the other. I am beginning to be a little weary of the preachy and moralising tone of the books, which is reflected in my ratings. I actually really liked the adventure and magical parts of this novel, but the overall tone makes me rate it lower.
When you make the mistake of agreeing to go to Walmart with your slowpoke father, it's nice to have an extremely compact book in your purse. (Yes, I did take this picture in the alcohol aisle--we were looking for ginger beer.) Enjoying the 4th book of the Narnia series so far.
Only two Narnia books to go before I complete the series. In this novel, Aslan tends to children who have faced great spiritual and moral corruption... by attending a co-ed school. 🙄
Both Kalena & Will are supposed to read/be read to every day, so I've been reading The Chronicles of Narnia out loud while they eat breakfast. It's been so fun to see them enjoy books I loved as a kid!
Suppose we have only dreamed, or made up, all those things - trees and grass and sun and moon and stars and Aslan himself . . . in that case, the made-up things seem a good deal more important than the real ones . . . I'm on Aslan's side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it.
