The Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge 2015

Each year, Carrie over at Reading to Know hosts a month-long Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge. The rules are simple and generous: read any Narnia books or books about Narnia or C.S. Lewis that you like. The arrival of this challenge resurrected some old feelings of guilt in me, as I haven’t read The Chronicles of Narnia, since I was 9 years old and sick with the flu for a month – they became my best friends then. I also have never read anything about Narnia, or anything else by C.S. Lewis. Maybe this month will be chance to remedy that.

At the very least, I hope to read The Chronicles of Narnia “series proper.” We’ll see what I get to after that. This might also serve as my excuse to collect the series in a nicer edition, than my old paperback treasury edition…not that I ever wait for a legitimate excuse to buy books. So hopefully over the next month there should be a handful of Narnia reviews. I may even watch The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, the only one of the movies I actually enjoy.

What are the rest of you reading this month?

  1. YES! *fist pump* :) Glad you are reading along. (I hope you are reading along.) The kids and I have made it through The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and tomorrow morning we are set to finish Prince Caspian. Really enjoying it, as always. And yup, it sounds like high time you dove back in!
