Northern Lights
I meant to get this post up much sooner than now, however I was drafting other Blogmas posts and somehow this one got put on the back burner...whoops! So today's topic is books and I thought I would tell you about a favourite of mine: Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman.

I first read this book when I was in Year 4 as I was a total book worm and would literally read anything, so my teacher introduced me to the Northern Lights trilogy. I loved the complexity of the world and how it was similar to our own, yet completely different at the same time! I ended up reading all three of the books, Northern Lights, Subtle Knife and the Amber Spyglass, in record time as I couldn't get enough of the style of writing.

I can really divulge into the story too much otherwise I would ruin the book, however what I can say is that if you're looking for series of books to read over Christmas this could be the perfect trio. What I must warn you about though, is that this isn't an easy read in terms of you do have to concentrate on the plot or you can get lost. If you doubt you'll have time to read the book you could try sitting the family down and watching the film version 'The Golden Compass,' it's obviously not as good as the book but I'll still watch it of an evening!

So that's today's post done and dusted, yesterdays was my Decoration Wishlist, check back tomorrow for my Cozy Winter Nights post to see what I'm loving to light up the dark nights!
