I always have mixed feelings reading this one. I know I‘m supposed to be happy about the end-and I am-but also sad that the stories are at an end.

TheAromaofBooks This book is so difficult for me to read, that there have been several times that I have read the rest of the series but not this one! 2d

I love this tale of how Narnia came about. One of my favorites. ❤️

Only one more book to go...

I didn‘t remember a lot of this one so it was good to revisit it. We‘re back in Narnia during the time of King Peter & Edmund and Queens Susan and Lucy, who are adults in this story. The focus is more on Shasta and Bree, a runaway horse and boy.

MadelineMcCrae This was my favorite Narnia book! 4d

This isn‘t one of my favorites but there‘s still lots of adventure and I do love Puddleglum.

Now onto The Horse and His Boy.

Northanger Abby | Jane Austen

This was my first Austen. I enjoyed it and definitely laughed at some parts. Catherine is sweet, honest and innocent, if a bit clueless. Henry is funny and kind and the Thorpes are the worst.

This was my #doublespin for January.

1. Hoping to finish the tagged today.
2. We‘re having an ice/wind storm in SC today. Freezing rain, trees encased in ice, lost lots of branches from our large pine tree. But at least the power came back on!
3. Blankets, hot chocolate, good book

Scochrane26 Ice storms are so beautiful but wreak so much havoc! Glad you got power back. 6d
AmyK1 @Scochrane26 Thanks! We were very thankful it was only off a couple hours. Ice in the trees is definitely beautiful but we‘ve got quite the mess to clean up lol 6d

Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy are pulled back to Narnia to help Prince Caspian defeat his uncle and take his rightful place as King. We meet some awesome new characters-Trumpkin, Doctor Cornelius, Trufflehunter and Reepicheep, my favorite.

Alice Pearce has it all-a loving husband, 3 adorable kids and a part time job that she loves. Then her husband makes a sudden career change and she‘s forced to find a full time job. This started out okay but then really dragged.

It‘s been far too long since I‘ve read these books. It was great to revisit Narnia and I plan on continuing the series in between #bookspin and other reads.

ONCE UPON A WARDROBE. | PATTI. CALLAHAN
post image
Pickpick

“Sometimes fairy stories may say best what needs to be said.”
The first book of the year did not disappoint. I loved this!
It‘s 1950 and 8 year old George, who is dying of a heart condition, loves the new book The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. He asks his sister, Megs, to find out where Narnia comes from. She connects with Mr Lewis and he answers her questions by telling her true stories of his life.

I think it‘s time to re-read Narnia.

SamanthaMarie I'm so glad this was a good read!! Sounds fabulous 😍 we read Lion, Witch, Wardrobe with our 6 year old and that was super fun. We want to keep going but just giving it some time in between each book. 3w
AmyK1 @SamanthaMarie It was SO good! Thank you again for sending it. My dad read me the Narnia books when I was little and I have loved them ever since. So glad your 6 year old likes it too! 3w
SamanthaMarie I LOVE that you have that special memory with your dad. My parents weren't big on reading so it's encouraging to hear that you have that happy association. They are really such good books. This one is on my TBR! Looking forward to getting to it :) 3w
