Teaser Tuesday: His Dark Materials – Northern Lights

24 Jun

Plunging back into the realms of epic childhood fantasy this week to re-read the first of Phillip Pullman’s epic trilogy ‘His Dark Materials’ ‘Northern Lights’ and re-live some wonderful childhood memories of being read this by Mum before bed during the summer before my siblings and I went off to boarding school for the first time.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author too so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers! 🙂

‘Lyra wandered away on her own, and went to the reedy bank to sit and throw mud into the water. She knew one thing: she was not pleased or proud to be able to read the alethiometer- she was afraid.’
