Book Review: I’d Rather Be Reading by Guinevere de la Mare

“At first, the other kids in the class – those who hadn’t been brave enough to stand up to Big Literacy – were envious of the freedom that allowed us to doodle at our desks during reading time.

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.

Thank you Sydney for tagging me! Sydney, the owner of Fire and Rain Books, is truly remarkable! I’ve been very lucky to have known her for a while now, almost since I started Bookmark Your Thoughts. She’s a sweetheart and a phenomenal blogger, one you should really connect with if you haven’t already.
