Don’t kill me, but I missed this and I am incredibly sorry, but I’ll make some excuses anyways (that are actually very valid) before I get into it.
Excuse #1: I’ve been trying to take a break from the screen (and blogging can’t really happen in the mail).
Excuse #2: Schoolwork and all that stuff.
Excuse #3: Work in general.
And because 3 is my favorite number, I’m going to stop at 3.
So…right in! Thank you, SJ for nominating me. It is my greatest pleasure and I am your most obedient servant (just kidding. I thought that just sounded very sophisticated and clever. Don’t ask me to come and clean your house).

Rate of Narnia Fanatics:
I guess I’m a serious fanatic because I haven’t lived up to all the fan clubs and worldwide fan shebang on the Narnia series, but I haven’t stopped loving it and watching the movies…it just gets kind of stilted at times (my loyalty to Narnia, not Narnia itself).
Who is your favorite Pevensie Sibling?
Okay, funny story (but kind of a sad one). I never knew their last name was Pevensie until I joined a book club (or my little brother did, but I joined him) on The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. That was an enlightening moment for me.
Anyways, my favorite sibling is Edmond because I relate most to him (always finds trouble, always in trouble, etc) and feel like people don’t give him much credit.
What is the most underrated book in Narnia?
Meh, I think they’re all loved equally, but I’ve got to stick with The Magicians Nephew. I actually didn’t read this book until last year, and I was quite shocked by how it was put together. Especially when C.S. Lewis managed to put the word, “Damn” in without actually saying it or offending people. I thought that was quite ingenious.
Who is your favorite Narnian king?
Uh, I don’t know if this counts, but my favorite is Strawberry the horse. I guess he’s the king of the horses right? He has wings, so I guess that’s some status point.
Who is your favorite Narnian queen?
I suppose I’ll have to go with Lucy, although I like Susan. She just ended up (spoiler alert) stuck out of Narnia, which made me really morose for a few days.
Which non-human Narnian do you like the best?
There is a winning tie between Reepicheep, his followers, and Rumblebuffin.
Hey, don’t judge. I thought Rumblebuffin was quite the gentleman.
Which book deserves a movie?
Um, all. Duh. But some already have some.
What is one thing you did as a Narnia fanatic you do not regret?
Fantasize that I would marry Edmond. I have no shame.
And I am tagging…
Literally, anyone who wants to do this. I’m seriously running out of people. But here’s a couple:
Bookworms and Bluestockings. Not really one person, but a group.
Teacrum. I don’t suppose this only sticks with writers, so I’m going with a fellow baker as well.
