worlds beyond our own

As the movie "The Golden Compass" comes out over here at the end of the month, I decided to start reading the books by Phillip Pullman - not just because of the film, but because they had been recommended by a few people who also loved JK Rowling and Tolkien's novels, so I figured I would like them.

I got The Northern Lights on Friday night, and I absolutely can't stop reading it. I am so in love with it, over a third of the way through, and not wanting to put it down. You know when you find a book that completely absorbs you, that you just want to fall into? That's how I feel about this one. I've been reading so many nonfiction books lately, from Hillary Clinton's biography to books about food and paganism and tarot, and knew I needed to read something that would lend to escapism, but this has taken me far beyond what I anticipated.

Love love love. I am so in love with this book. I need to get the other two in the trilogy ♥

I've probably spoiled the movie experience for myself (because movies are never as good as their novels), but I still can't wait to see it anyway.
