Prince Caspian by C. S. Lewis

The Chronicles of Narnia are probably one of my favourite children’s books of all time, although I discovered the series when the first film came out in 2005. I was thirteen at that time, so I was already in my teens but I started reading the first volume and was absolutely captivated. Last April I was given The Voyage of the Dawn Treader in a beautiful facsimile edition by my lovely friend and of course I couldn’t resist buying the other available volumes as well! Today I’ll tell you something more about my revisit to Narnia in Prince Caspian. Continue reading “Prince Caspian by C. S. Lewis”

My Summer TBR Update

In June I posted this blog post on my Summer TBR: all the books I intended to read during the summer months (June, July and August). I thought it would be fun to do two updates before the end of summer, at the start of each new month, and tell you how my TBR is coming along! Continue reading “My Summer TBR Update”

Read #6 June 2015

This month I decided to split the Read & Seen blog post up. Every time they turn out quite long and take up much time to compose, so I figured it would be better to spread the fun over two posts. Of most of them I have yet to write a review, but today I’m going to give you a little sneak peak of what I thought.  Continue reading “Read #6 June 2015”

New Narnia Books!

They’ve finally arrived! The three facsimile volumes I ordered have made quite a journey: apparently they’ve travelled via Austria (!?). Anyway, they’re now on my bookshelves, safe and sound, next to The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Aren’t they beautiful? Continue reading “New Narnia Books!”

My Summer TBR

Summer is upon us and I’m really looking forward to reading in the sunshine. I thought it might be nice to put together a Summer TBR as a kind of mini challenge. Over the last few weeks I bought quite a few novels, so this way I hope to make sure I’m reading them as soon as possible (and not buying more books instead). Want to see what’s on the list? Continue reading “My Summer TBR”

Read & Seen #5 May 2015

Another month passed and it’s June already. Wow, just another six weeks and then I’ll be done for this year at university. I’ll have to work hard these coming weeks, but I think that the thought of summer and vacation will be a great help. I’m looking forward to reading a lot this summer, but before I can compile my TBR for July and August, I’ll show you what I’ve read and seen last May! Continue reading “Read & Seen #5 May 2015”

Book Haul | Oh No, She Didn’t!

Er, well, yes she did. That is to say: I bought some books. Again. If you’ve read my latest review (or my Beautiful Books post for that matter), you’d know that I’ve fallen in love with Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia again. It’s been sometime since I last read any of his novels, but when I received the facsimile edition of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader as a present, I fell in love all over again.
