His Dark Materials Read-A-Long Announcement!!

Hellooo to all you lovely readers. I am very very excited to share with you today's announcement! Growing up Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials was a series that stuck with me, that I remember enjoying so much, and that for a while I've wanted to go back to. So here we are in 2015, the 20th anniversary (HOW HAS IT BEEN 20 years) of the publication of Northern Lights, and with Scholastic bringing out beautiful new editions what better time to revisit such an amazing series, or for a number of people, experience it for the first time!  SO many I present to you the :

His Dark Materials Read-A-Long 

Starting March 2nd, myself along with five other fantastic blogers will be hosting a Read-A-Long of the three novels in the Trilogy: Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass, as well as the two companion novels Lyra's Oxford, Once Upon A Time in the North and the Audiobook The Collectors. We'll be live tweeting as we go, using the #HDMreadalong, sharing our thoughts, memories, or first time experiences, and we would love you all to read along with us and get involved in the discussions!!

Please do grab a copy, Scholastic are releasing BEAUTIFUL new editions on March 5th (Paperback and Hardback, I'm going to need some serious restraint in Waterstones) and for the first time the books will be available in eBook too and you can get them here: (Apple) (Amazon). so however you want to join us I hope to see you on the 2nd
