Might as well wrap up the short stories as well. Love visiting Lyra‘s Oxford!

Sometimes I wonder if I should have applied to Cornell but then I‘m in rooms like this, haunted with someone playing the organ where I can‘t see. Creaking floors and intricate rugs and I think maybe not. I like the messy warmth of Ithaca

How did I not know this existed?!? This requires a reread of the main story.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't expect more from this book. Felt a very pointless read in the grand scheme of things, but that's not to say it wasn't well written and atleast somewhat enthralling; it's just a shame it ended as it was starting to get exciting.

Husband‘s out, little one is asleep, now for some quality time with my books!
This one is a companion short story to the His Dark Materials trilogy that I never got around to reading. Full of lovely little illustrations and bits like the map of Oxford shown and the postcard from Mary Malone.
I‘m reading this and the other short story Once Upon a Time in the North before starting the Book of Dust.

CatGV Awww this is lovely! Where did you get the companion stuff? 2y
LoveToReadLiveToRead @CatGV It has all the maps, postcards etc inside 😃 2y

Ordered this brand new book and this is how it arrived. What even? 😅 There was also a small hole in the sleeve cover. Must have gotten stuck in the printing machine or something.

Ordered a replacement of course!

A perfect little read for a cold December night. I‘m hesitant to open anything very long this late in the year, so this bijou little beauty fit the bill. The best thing about it? I bought my copy in Oxford. And it really is an ode to that city. Little more than a nibble of a story, really, but a nibble from the delightful, and very rich slice of pie that is the Dark Materials series.

A bunch of people posted this on on Litsy and elsewhere. I remain unconvinced.

GondorGirl That would be an awesome daemon! 2y

@jfalkens Here are the two I was talking about yesterday! I happened to find out about them somewhere online, and every Golden Compass fan I've talked to about these doesn't seem to know about them! Spread the word!

Short but great. A follow on from his dark materials books. Kathy found it in op shop for $1. Great jet lag read. 😊

My imaginings of me in four fictional characters 😍 or maybe this is wishful thinking ahaha Lyra Silvertongue, Tiffany Aching, Lorelei Gilmore (for coffee and manicness) and Violet (although I kinda channel Hannah sometimes too) 😝

Gayan Although I'm old enough (almost) to be an Emily, I feel like a Rory inside. 😂 3y
TheLondonBookworm @Gayan hehe your never too old to be Rory at heart 😉 3y

#tbrtuesday Vertical edition. Additions since last time are 4/5 of my library haul from last week: Lyra's Oxford and Lumberjanes volumes 2-4. #5 of the library haul is Once Upon a Time in the North, which I already read. Still #3 on the library's list to check out Wise Man's Fear. I'm not even that impatient to read it, just surprised they only have 2 copies.

brendanmleonard No mention of Lumberjanes can go by without saying: "Friendship to the max!" (Which should totally be the motto of Litsy.) 3y
lilycobalt @brendanmleonard It should! I love the Lumberjanes pledge as a whole. Especially "then there's a line about God or whatever." 3y
