“Once a king or queen of Narnia, always a king or queen of Narnia.”
Last year, I managed to finish the whole Narnia Chronicles Series. I still have a lot of feelings about this back then that’s why I don’t want to write a review yet. But I think it is about time that I finally put into words the thoughts and feelings that I have while reading the series.
The thing that I found the most interesting about this series is you can read it in two ways: chronological order or publication order. I have read this series in publication order but then I realized that the story would surely make more sense if you read it in chronological order. But whichever way you wish to read it would surely work.
I hope this will not be a very long review so this will just be a mini review, I will not include the synopsis of the books, just my rating and my thoughts. So without further ado, let’s dive into my review!
“It was the end of a decade but the start of an age.”
–Taylor Swift, Long Live
As the year 2019 came to an end, we did not only closed a year but we are closing a decade. And because of that, I’ve been seeing this trend of people looking back in their decade. So here I am looking back at my decade of reading.
I have been wondering how I will do this but I finally come into terms with just mentioning books that have become the highlight of my year or a book that changed my perspective during that said year.
I have to warn you that this will be a very very veeeerrrryyyy long post because this decade is not just a decade of picking up favorites or seeing how my reading taste changes, this decade is my journey of becoming a bookworm.
So without further ado, here is a decade of my reading…
They say that a good story would remain in someone’s heart for a very long time if it is well loved. I, as a reader, have read books that I surely love and would highly recommend to some. However, no matter how many books there are on my TBR pile, there is still a gnawing feeling inside me that’s craving for something more. And lately, I’m sating my cravings with classic books (or books that were published before the aged of Twilight and Hunger Games), but I would like to call them legendary books.
Before dropping the names of the 3 legendary books that I’m trying my hardest to give a good introduction, I would like to give a brief criteria as to why I consider them legendary.
They are still popular and well-loved no matter how long they have been published or using the words of Taylor Swift, they never go out of style.
The series became an inspiration not only to us readers, but also the other authors who aspired to write a book that would give the same impact to readers.
They have set the bars in their own genre.
And without further ado, here are the 3 legendary books that I’ve been dying to read.
