The Magician’s Nephew Chapters 1-3

I’m a bit behind on reading as we skipped reading for two nights. We had a power outage last night so we lit some candles and I read two chapters to mum and dad which now puts us through chapter three.
What have you thought so far?
I loved these chapters. I love being just on the edge of the adventure, which is right where the end of chapter three leaves you.
Something that really stood out to me was Digory’s chivalry in going after Polly. I love the line “And he thought then, as he always thought afterward too, that he could not decently have done anything else.” What a hero. J
Then there’s Uncle Andrew, who is so horrid yet he comes across as so funny. I love C. S. Lewis’ writing. He writes the best dialogue between characters!
What do you think of the wood between the worlds? It makes me think of the feeling you have just before you fall asleep, where your all comfy and almost dreaming. It sounds nice, but also a bit scary. I wouldn’t like to be stuck in a place like that.
On to chapter four! What are your thoughts so far?

The Magician's Nephew

I'm going to read the Chronicles of Narnia series in chronological order, so I am starting with The Magician's Nephew. I'm going to read through it rather quickly since I would like to finish it before I leave for England so I am going to read 2 chapters a day. If this is too fast for any of you to read through it, feel free to comment later on!

So, read the first two chapters and let me know your thoughts of them! I'm excited to share mine as well. :) I love these books!

The Chronicles of Narnia

I have a serious craving to read this series again after just seeing Prince Caspian in theaters. If anyone else wants to read through it with me please join in and post comments! I'm not sure when I'll start...probably next week or so.

I love these books so much! :)
