The Narnia Book Tag

Hello beautiful people!

So…I haven’t exactly finished all of the Chronicles of Narnia books (whoopsie). I had always meant to, but they yet again were lost in my collection of books to read. I’ve read a few and I’ve watched all the films, but this will hopefully push me to read the entire series.

She’s a sweetheart and a phenomenal blogger, one you should really connect with if you haven’t already.

The creator of this book tag is Clémence @ Clemi’s Bookish World. The source for the images can be viewed by clicking on the image.

If you haven’t introduced yourself to Rebecca and her blog, I highly suggest you get on over and do that.
