Prince Caspian, The Abhorsen series, & Europe (!)

Woot! Saw Prince Caspian today. I should probably write an official review, but unfortunately I don't have time.
I was going to write a review for the Abhorsen series (Sabriel, Lirael, and Abhorsen), but I don't have time for that either (I'll get to the reason in a second).
But here's what I think (quickly) of both.
Prince Caspian: Reepicheep pretty much rocks! Ben Barnes pretty much owned Prince Caspian, but Edmund is still my favorite character (in the books and movies). I really did like Prince Caspian--it had a much darker feel to it and I certainly like the way it was interpreted. As for the added stuff (Susan/Caspian romance, Caspian/Peter rivalry), I didn't think it was too bad--certainly not bad enough to make Mr. Lewis turn in his grave. But that's just my opinion.

The Abhorsen series: love love loved!!! This is a must-read series for anyone who is a fan of Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter. I just can't say enough how much I loved these books! (And the Disreputable Dog!)....(and Mogget too!)

Anyway--as of tomorrow I'm going international. Paris and Brussels here I come baby! I'm just so excited--and I haven't even finished packing!
I'll try to take lots of pictures!

Yay for Edmund fans! He's my favorite too. Movies more than books (but I prefer the movies to the books).

I have the first book of the "Abhorsen" series but have yet to read it...

And have lots of fun in Europe! It goes without saying that I'm jealous, but... ;)

Anilee, you really really should make time for Sabriel soon! She and I promise you'll be glad you did! ;)

Wow, exciting stuff! Save an adventure or two from Europe to tell us about!

Squeel! Paris? Exciting. Edmund is definitely my fave Narnia character, though Ben Barnes did a superb job.
