Being lovers of books and reading, we all get our news and rumours from varying places across the internet. Social media is usually the primary platform but I’ve often found that the culture section of The Guardian website has some interesting articles and discussions. What I don’t usually find are excerpts of upcoming books, however when I started to browse under the Children’s Books heading, that’s exactly what I came across. This excerpt came from the highly anticipated Book of Dust by Philip Pullman, his expansion of His Dark Materials Trilogy.
If, like me, you are excited for this book to be released, the excerpt is linked above.
I say I’m excited, in fact, I am completely psyched! Whilst I have not read it for years I absolutely love His Dark Materials trilogy. It was probably the first fantasy trilogy that I ever read at 10/11 years old and it has been a huge part of my life since then. It has shaped my love of fantasy, magic, and parallel universes and I’m always recommending it to people. I even found the first novel in graphic novel format and recommended it to my sister! She’s not read it yet but I’m waiting to geek out and fully pull her into the world!
What about you?
Is it one of your anticipated releases for the latter quarter of the year?
Thanks for reading and have a good day!
