Thank you a lot to Lauren at https://literarywisdom.wordpress.com/ – for tagging me in this fabulous tag. I adore The Chronicles of Narnia, so lets have some fun with this 🙂
- The Chronicles of Narnia – a magical world that you’d like to visit:
Hogwarts of course and the world of Harry Potter would be the number one place on my list of fictional places to visit; How amazing would it be to be in the world in which I effectively grew up in through my early reading years? It would be such a dream to go through that barrier at 9 and 3/4 and ride the Hogwarts Express. Also, I must mention Narnia – who does not dream of finding a magical world at the back of a wardrobe? Other worlds include Ketterdam, because it would be amazing to hang out with Kaz and the Dregs, as well as The Night Court, because Rhysand is a dream, and Castle Leoch with Jamie and Claire (from Outlander). That’s just to name a few, there’s so many book worlds that I’d love to visit and hang around with the characters that I adore.
2. The Magician’s Nephew – a book you find underrated.
For this, it must be The Gemma Doyle Trilogy by Libba Bray. If you haven’t read or even heard of this series, you must give them a go! It’s a fantasy novel set in Victorian England, an era which I love. It’s one of my all time favourite trilogies.
3. The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe – A classic that you love.
I have to say Les Miserables by Victor Hugo; it stands at one of the longest books I’ve ever read but I doubt that there will ever be a time where I will not need the story of Jean Valjean in my life. Plus, I adore Cosette, Eponine, Marius and the gang.
4. The Horse and His Boy – a book you picked up without knowing what it was about.
Last Halloween I was looking for something spooky to read and stumbled across The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall by Katie Allender. I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did but it was eerie and the characters were great.
5. Prince Caspian – a sequel you adore.
Of course, Harry Potter and Narnia have amazing sequels: but also I must mention Crown of Midnight and A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas, Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo and The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater and of course Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon. The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory, the sequel to The White Queen, is pretty amazing too.
6. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader – a quest that you’d like to be a part of.
I choose Harry Potter and Narnia for this, but I’d also love to be a member of The Dregs from Six of Crows and The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater.
7. The Silver Chair – a book you didn’t expect to love.
I did not at all expect to love Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas, yet it ended up becoming a fast favourite of mine. There was so much hype surrounding the books before I started reading the series, but the characters grew on me so easily and I fell in love with the bookworld. I was so lost after book 5 and I’m waiting with baited breath for book 6.
8. The Last Battle – the perfect ending to a book series you loved.
Harry Potter, hands down. And The Gemma Doyle trilogy by Libba Bray, and The Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. Though with the latter two, I would alter the endings slightly (not saying more, because you should read them) 😉
9. The Pevensies – a siblinghood of friendship you’d love of be a part of.
Hands down, the Weasleys and the Pevensies: I love that they are unconditionally always there for one another, through thick and thin.
10. Eustace Scrubb – a character that grew on you.
I would have to say Rowan from The Throne of Glass series. I wasn’t a huge fan of him at first but he certainly grew on me in Queen of Shadows and Empire of Storms.
11. Mr Tumnus – your favourite mythical creature.
I would have to say unicorns – I love their purity and they are just so beautiful. Pheonix’s too, it’s amazing how they are re born from their own ashes.
12. Caspian – a character with regal qualities.
Celeana Sardothien, Dorian Havillard and Nehemia Ygter from Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas, and Kaz Brekker from Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows.
13. Repicheep – a loyal character.
Kaz Brekker from Six of Crows. Loyalty is fundamental to him.
14. The Wardrobe – your favourite hideout, place to read.
In an armchair, with a purring cat on my lap and a large mug of coffee, tea or cocoa nearby. Or curled up in bed with several blankets.
And thus concludes my answers. Feel free to comment your thoughts. I too tag everyone to do this because it was such fun to do and I’d love to see all your answers. Until next time, Happy Reading,
