Susan deserved better.
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.‘”

I wanted to post this about Owlcrate‘s June box, the entire theme is Fictional Libraries and I am super excited that we are getting bookends! This may be the month for some of you to try! And then you can easily cancel if it is still not for you, but definitely try this one ❤️ https://www.owlcrate.com/refer/Caled-EEZCUOMD
In my local charity shop today ?? I‘m not sure who pops into Oxfam to spend 640 on books, lovely though they are.
It‘s not *quite* warm enough to be outside in the hammock but I‘m trying - blankets help!! (There‘s a fire inside if I can‘t tough it out and need to warm myself too.). Really loving re-reading this brick of all 7 books this spring break. ❤️
The chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis is a modern fantasy book that was published in 1950. This book is about a fictional realm called Narnia. There are talking animals, mythical beasts, and fantasy world of magic. The main characters are four children that come from the real world and are transported into Narnia. They are called upon to save Narnia from evil.
Part 5//10 of today‘s home-library tour! ☺️
Do you own, or have you read, any of these?
Great fantasy read about a family of siblings during a war. They find another magical world where they have countless adventures. Would use as a Read aloud or LC. My 3rd grade teacher read this to us after lunch everyday! We loved it.UDL Clarify vocab & symbols. ELL provide translation app or bilingual dictionary. Also a major motion picture.

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?
Just call it Fanfiction like the rest of us, random dude.

I‘m getting ready to re-read (listen) to Chronicles. What is your preferred reading order? Publication order, or chronological (story) order. And why?
This was a tough call, there are so many imagined worlds that I would love to go to if it were ever possible. But I think I will choose the one I first fell in love with, Narnia, which ignited my love of books and fantasy. @GondorGirl , thanks for this super amazing giveaway! #gigibookbox
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?

The awesome things we buy back at the bookstore. 1970 set in excellent condition for being almost 50 years old. I couldn‘t resist!!
Current read aloud with my children. Even though CS Lewis said it is not Christian allegory...I‘m digging the allegory. 😉
The view outside my office. Looks like Narnia.
Because it makes me feel cozy on a cold day. Even if it's just a few random chapters...
Narnia will always be something special for me. ♥️
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!
Where to go next?
How frickin' gorgeous is this set?!?!?!?! I can't even.
Inspired by Becoming Mrs. Lewis and also by a little bit of guilt, I bought this and have started with The Magician‘s Nephew. I‘d only ever read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and I only ever got around to that a year or so ago.
Well I‘ve finally read through them all! My faves are still holding that position. Can‘t say that I truly enjoyed The Last Battle except for Patrick Stewart reading it 😍. The ending was very sudden and almost too much. From a religious perspective, I get the lesson. From a story-telling point? It was kind of out of nowhere. Overall, I enjoyed the series. It will remain an integral part of my childhood.
Off the top of my head -
📚 The Bible
📚 The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis (some of the first books I can remember that made me fall in love with reading)
📚 Hiding Place by Corrie Ten-Boom
📚 Night by Elie Wiesel (These two books depict a portion of history and two different stories. Both of which I pray never happens again)
📚 The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (Too many reasons to list 😂)
Thanks @sebrittain for the #sundayfunday
Good morning everyone! What is everyone reading? I need something really good to read because I have not finished one book this month.. still! 🙈
