Do you have any reading goals this year?


  1. Sounds like a neat challenge! I do know a bit a about George MacDonald, and that he was the author who inspired C. S. Lewis to write in his allegorical style. I've read Back of the North Wind by him, which was interesting, and The Wise Woman and Other Stories we had to read for school. I also read Lilith, which was really strange. Supposedly Lilith was Adam's first wife before he met Eve... very strange story indeed. :)

    1. Wow, that is strange! I've heard his books for adults are a lot harder to get through than his books for children, so I'm hoping The Princess and the Goblin won't be too drastically difficult!

  2. Lilith is possibly my favorite George MacDonald book ever. Though I also love his children's stories. The Princess and the Goblin is an all-time favorite, and not difficult at all. I may have to join you on that one.

    I don't usually do reading goals... but if I had to, I think my goal this year is to read a lot more Indie authors... because I have quite a few of them whose blogs I read and love, but I haven't gotten around to reading their books yet.
