Happy October. It’s officially autumn. Halloween is almost here, the days have already become shorter (boo,) and shockingly, Christmas has already started to appear in shops.
As a kid, I always loved this time of year (October is my birthday month so I am a little biased.) I used to love getting home from school and stepping into the warmth of our house. I would make a cup of tea and toast and would sit and either read or catch Fun House or Finder’s Keepers on telly.
This month I wanted to pick a book that reminded me of the autumns of my childhood. For October, I’ve picked The Chronicles of Narnia; The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
Hands up the people who remember the BBC adaptation. That theme tune that will now be worming its way into your head right?
I love books and I love chatting about them even more. Who wants to join me to chat about Lions, Witches and magical secrets worlds?
I have posted a question to kick things off in the comments box below. The good thing about this book club is that everyone is welcome to take part. It’s open to all. You can read the book at any point in the month or if you’ve already read it, tell us what you think.
The best part… it’s all from the comfort of your armchair/sofa/bed/comfy place.
About the book:
Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy Pevensie are sent to live with their reclusive Uncle in his mysterious country home. Lucy soon discovers a wardrobe that hides a doorway into the magical world of Narnia.
Narnia was once a peaceful land of talking beasts, dwarfs, giants, and fauns. But an evil spell is cast on Narnia and it is now ruled by the White Witch, who has transformed it into a frozen place, where it is “always winter, but never Christmas.” To the creatures of Narnia, the children now represent hope.
Led by the powerful lion Aslan, the children must defeat the White Witch and free all of Narnia from her icy spell.
