Book Review:The Silver Chair

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I am an avid reader. I love getting lost in new books, and oftentimes my jewelry will be inspired by a new story. I thought it would be fun to write a book review, then feature the piece of jewelry that it inspired along with a coupon code! Please let me know what you think.

The Silver Chair (Chronicles of Narnia, #6)The Silver Chair by C.S. Lewis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I've loved the Chronicles of Narnia ever since I was a little girl. The Silver Chair isn't my absolute favorite in the series for the simple fact that it's a little dark, but a great book all the same!

The Silver Chair continues the story of Narnia when Eustace Scrubb, along with his classmate Jill Pole, are whisked into Narnia to help find Prince Rilian (King Caspian's son who had been kidnapped years before). Their adventure leads them into the deep, dark Narnia, in the grip of the evil Queen of Underland, where they prove they're Narnians through and through in order to break the evil queen's enchantment.

Secret messages, action, adventure, new friendships, giants, marsh-wiggles, and of course loads of symbolism for the simple fact that it's C.S. Lewis. This book has it all! Definitely recommend this book, and the series for that matter. If you're going to read the series, I also recommend reading them in order.

Here is the necklace that was inspired by the book:

Wish List

I am constantly on Etsy; if I'm not doing something with my own shop, then I'm shopping around in other people's! There's so much amazing stuff out there! Here are just a few items on the top of my wish list:

And for whatever reason, I have been craving caramels and just happened to run across this local caramel shop (woot Utah!):

And I want just about everything in Kristin Coffin's shop! Unfortunately, her shop's in vacation mode until the end of August :( Oh well, maybe I'll just have to have a beautiful new ring for my wedding anniversary in October! Here's just one of my favorite rings:

So, who wants to buy me something?? ;)
