From the list on making you believe in magic.
Who am I?
I vividly remember the first time a book transported me—it was in Mrs. Paul’s second-grade math class, and I was reading The Voyage of the Dawn Treader under the desk. It carried me away to a different world. I’ve been looking for that same magic in every book since, hoping to fall into a picture or open a wardrobe door to another place and time. This list contains a few of my favorites, the stories that have earned permanent spots on my shelves, the ones that get pulled down when I need some enchantment in my life. (And don’t we all need a little magic these days?)
Liz's book list on making you believe in magic
Discover why each book is one of Liz's favorite books.
Why did Liz love this book?
I love all The Chronicles of Narnia books, but this one is my favorite.
How could it not be, with Eustace Clarence Scrubb, a boy almost as terrible as his name, as well as the giant-hearted talking mouse Reepicheep?
There are battles and adventures galore, but it’s also quieter than the other books in the series—the characters explore the landscape around them and wrestle with who they are and what they are becoming.
Written close to a century ago, there’s dated language and ideas for sure, but I’ve rarely found another story that captures so well the bittersweetness of growing up and facing grief and loss.
