#blogjune Blogging challenges Christianity family anecdotes Reading

30 must-read books – #14

Hello again dear reader! So today marks the third week of books in my #blogjune theme this year: the first several days were ‘literary’ works, the second were ‘fantasy / sci fi’. And now? On to Christian novels! Stay tuned over the coming few posts for my absolute faves. And there may be some that surprise you…

So I realized the other day that Raymond E. Feist’s Magician was, in actual fact, NOT the first fantasy book I ever read. Whoops! Rather, the first was The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe from C.S.Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia.


In my defense, I knew that this book would be one of my ‘top 7’ Christian books, to use in this third week of June, and it just didn’t occur to me that it was both Christian and fantasy. D’oh! Thanks to Jo for reminding me!

So anyway, I love this series. I remember as a young child, having animated discussions with my brothers about the rings (from The Magician’s Nephew) and what Digory and Polly could have, or should have done.

And now that I’m a mum, I’m enjoying sharing these same stories with my own cherubs.

How about you? Are there stories that you grew up with that you’ve passed your love of, down to a younger generation?

And have a great day, dear reader!
