the chronicles of narnia

chronicles of narnia

Just finished reading the full series of books in the “Chronicles of Narnia” set by C.S. Lewis.  Been working on it for awhile off and on.  Great series!!  I never read all the books when I was younger, so this was a first for me.  The book I have has you read the books in chronological order according to Narnia Timelime as opposed to the order of publishing release. 

My favorites in the series were of course “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” (a classic and fun) and “Voyage of the Dawn Treader” (enjoyed it’s portrals of a variety of myserterious lands and characters).  Favorite character: Reepicheep (both fun character and fun name to say).

Great books, Excellent series, amazingly talented author to come up with these lands.  I’m sure I will pick this series up again to read soon.  A definite must read for anyone.

Searching for the right cookbook is such a hard task sometimes.  Been on the hunt for awhile.  And while I’m still on the hunt for a good creole cookbook after having come back from New Orleans, picked up Julia Child’s, “Mastering the Art of French Cooking”, today to start the cookbook collection.  Loved watching Julia cook on her TV show when I was younger and the food looked great.  Can’t wait to start cooking recipes from the book!
