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!!!

Shorter Musings MG Fantasy

Here are some shorter musings on recent MG fantasy reads. Anya and the Dragon   by Sofiya Pasternack This book is fun. It is a book full of adventure, an obvious bad guy, some more complicated morally gray area characters, and a strong, brave heroine. It is also a book about friendships, community, and fighting for what is right. All things that usually work for me really well. While I enjoyed this, I did feel it was a little overlong and there were certain plot points at the end I didn't love. However, there were things I thought were done really well, such as Anya's Jewish faith and the idea that power needs to be challenged. In the end it was a middle of the road read for me, but it is one I will certainly be recommending to dragon and fantasy adventure lovers I know! R is for Rebel   by J. Anderson Coats This is tough because I usually really like Coats's books. I had such a hard time with this one though on so many levels. It's difficult to get into because t

TTT: Most Recent Additions to My TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly themed blog hop created by  The Broke and the Bookish  and now hosted at  That Artsy Reader Girl . This Week's Topic: Most Recent Additions to My TBR List From Most Recent to Least: What books have recently caught your eye?

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

Ash & Bramble

I have established that I love fairy tales and fairy tale retellings. You know what else I love? Books written by Sarah Prineas. Both her MG series are great favorites of mine. When she happened to mention on Twitter long ago that she was working on a YA, I followed closely eager to read whatever the result was. Ash & Bramble  is a fabulous work of genius. (I consider Sarah a friend as well as an author I love, and she sent me the ARC I'm reviewing here.) Pin lives in the Godmother's fortress sewing clothes with the other seamstresses tasked with producing the beautiful one of a kind ballgowns the Godmother uses for her mysterious purposes. Pin has no memories of her life prior to the day she begins her work as a slave to the Godmother's will. Everything that came before is a blank nothing. While she has no memories, she is still a person with a will and a fierce defiance to live her own life. She gets a chance to plan an escape when she is used as a foot model for

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
