Welcome to the fourth month of the reading/blogging event Flavia and I are hosting, Calendar Girls! It’s a monthly event designed to ignite bookish discussions between bloggers based on the monthly theme. For more information, check out my or Flavia’s launch posts!
Best High Fantasy Novel!
Here I thought this was gonna be an easy one. I thought I’d have any number of books to choose from, but it turns out that a lot of the fantasy I read isn’t actually high fantasy. Thus, my pickings were rather slim. Not that it mattered because my choice needs no decision-making. My choice is obvious!
The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
by C.S. Lewis
I know! I know! The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe is sooo cliche, but it’s a classic! I mean, who doesn’t love this book? Or the whole series for that matter because I’d pick all seven books if I could!
And besides, I think I would always pick this as my favorite high fantasy novel. It doesn’t matter how many books I’ve read or how my tastes change because The Chronicles of Narnia was a series I read even before I liked reading. It was one of those series that broke through my dislike when I was younger and enchanted me. For that I will always love it and always pick it.
Anyone else read The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis?
If you haven’t, you should!
