#4: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis (52 Books / 52 Weeks)
This year, I’ve set a goal to read 52 books in 52 weeks. You can see my list and track my progress here. If you’re interested in taking the challenge yourself and joining a group of people with the same commitment, please request to join our Facebook group. The group will remain open to new members through February, but the later you join, the more catching up you will have to do. In addition to tracking what I’ve read in my original list, one way I intend to keep current with this goal is write a short article about each book as I finish them. You will be able to visit Amazon’s page for each of the books by clicking on the image or the title below.
TITLE & AUTHOR
Fiction – Fantasy
The second book in the Narnia series, and the first one made into a movie, this book tracks the adventure of Peter, Susan, Edmond and Lucy as the discover the land of Narnia and set out to make things right much to the chagrin of the White Witch.
Is was tempting to start with this book as the movie was my first introduction to this series several years ago. The movie was fairly faithful to the book, though the book is always better. Lewis has a way with words and storytelling that is just captivating, and I finished this book in two sittings. I am anxious now to start the third book in the series – The Horse and His Boy. I highly recommend this book, and this entire series to anyone of any age.
