Heh, we have the same #1! I actually don't own very much Lewis, since I let my sister keep our Narnia set.
Kristen said…
Wow! I didn't even know some of these authors had that many books. I need to read more of Diana Wynne Jones' books.

Wow, what are the 18 C.S. Lewis books?? Do you have multiples?

Diana Wynne Jones is an author I wish were on my list, too. I loved the first four Chrestomanci books, and I'm really not sure why I didn't continue reading the rest of her novels.

Our lists do have C.S. Lewis in common . . . thanks to The Chronicles of Narnia giving him an automatic edge! =P

Wow, those are quite a few books in a series. I'm wondering about the C.S. Lewis books too. My biggest is J.K. Rowlings, mostly because I purchased the box set with the new covers illustrated by Kazu Kibuish.
Brandy said…
Long live DWJ!!!!
Brandy said…
She has tons more I still haven't read or own. She was prolific!
Brandy said…
I don't have any multiples.

They are:
Narnia 1-7
Out of the Silent Planet
Peralandra
That Hideous Strength
Till We Have Faces
Mere Christianity
The Screwtape Letters
The Great Divorce
The Four Loves
The Abolition of Man
The Pilgrim's Regress
The Problem of Pain
Brandy said…
Oh you should definitely read the rest of DWJ beginning with the two Chrestomanci books you haven't read yet. Love that series!
Brandy said…
I have that set of HP books too! My daughter has the original hardcover set, but I wasn't counting the books that belong just to her.

I listed the Lewis book's I own in the comment reply to Kate above. No multiples there either. :)

I really need to read more Diana Wynne Jones. I feel like my magical/fantasy reading is really deficient! I'd love to know more about Elizabeth Wein's books. I loved Code Name Verity and Rose Under Fire, but haven't read her earlier works at all. Nice list!
Brandy said…
Wein's early stuff is great too. Where else are you going to find Ancient Ethiopian historical fiction? It has all the intrigue and emotion of CNV and Rose too.
Alexa said…
Bonus points to you for showing off book 5 of HP for Rowling. That is my favorite book by her and in that series.
Great list!
Unknown said…
Oh look, tons of amazing authors I still need to read! Sigh. (Somedaaaaaaaay...)
Brandy said…
Book 5 is my favorite too! I love how despite V's return at end of book 4, Rowling made this about typical villainy we see every day in real life.

SOONER RATHER THAN LATER!!!

Favorite Kissing Scenes

When thinking of a favorite things post I could do for February I decided it would have to be kissing. I've already done couples and I was feeling in the mood to do something fluffy and Valentine's related. So kisses it is. I read more MG than YA, and the YA I read tends to not focus on romance so this was actually harder than I expected it to be though a few jumped into my head right away. (And one of my choices does actually come from a MG book. One is adult. Gasp!) The actual scene from the book is quoted followed by my thoughts. The king lifted a hand to her cheek and kissed her. It was not a kiss between strangers, not even a kiss between a bride and a groom. It was a kiss between a man and his wife, and when it was over, the king closed his eyes and rested his forehead against the hollow of the queen's shoulder, like a man seeking respite, like a man reaching home at the end of the day . - The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner Turner doesn't write the

Serafina and the Black Cloak

Serafina and the Black Cloak  by Robert Beatty is a thrilling tale of mystery and adventure set at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC in 1899. Having lived in Asheville and visited the house several times, there was no way I was going to pass up a chance to read this. (Also it's MG fantasy, always a bonus for me.) Serafina lives in secret in the basement of the Vanderbilt's spacious vacation home. She has lived there most of her life. Her father worked on the house as it was being built and is the mechanic who runs the massive generator and keeps the electricity going. Serafina is the chief rat catcher, slipping through the halls of her massive home secretly and quietly. She is light on her feet, sees well in the dark, and is quick enough to catch the vermin and keep them out. Serafina knows she if different and strange. Her father insists she stay hidden. But all that changes when one night Serafina witnesses a horrible crime. A little girl, a guest in the house, is fleein

Shadowshaper

Shadowshaper  by Daniel José Older is everywhere. Best of lists. Award buzz. Blogs everywhere. It's one of those books everyone is reading and talking about. I had it on my TBR but decided I definitely needed to read it before the year was out just so I could weigh in on one of the most talked about books of 2015 if asked. It is deserving of every good thing said about it. Every. One. Sierra was looking forward to a relaxing summer break. Her plans involved hanging out with her friends and painting. They did not involve being chased by zombie like creatures and threatened by a magical power connected to her family's heritage she has never heard of. When murals begin fading all over her Brooklyn neighborhood, Sierra is perplexed. When her grandfather, who had a stroke, begins to apologize and starts repeating strange phases and insisting Sierra get the help of a boy she barely knows to help her finish her mural, Sierra is concerned but mostly about her grandfather. Then at a
