October Releases I’m Excited For 

October Releases I’m Excited For 

Just like September, October has SO MANY good releases coming out and again, like September, I can’t afford to buy any of them. *goes to cry in a corner* Most of these books are the second books in a series and some of these are the first. Mirror Mirror by Cara Delevigne is one that I’m just curious about… Has she been able to create a brilliant YA novel? We shall see…

Northern Lights by Philip Pullman

Northern Lights by Philip Pullman

I first read this book when I was about twelve and I just couldn’t get into it. It wasn’t the type of book that I liked to read and I remember the size of the book just made reading it so much harder. But I finished it and never even thought about reading the next two. But ten years later, and I found myself returning to the world of Lyra, polar bears, daemons and witches.
