Review: His Dark Materials Series

Hello dear reader(s) and welcome to another instalment of Nessa reads books and writes reviews (NRBWR) because she doesn’t want to forget what she read 3 months later. 🙂 Yeah, that sounds like a good series title; the acronym needs work though. 😀 Today I’m presenting my review of Philip Pullman’s fantasy series His Dark Materials. The series consist of 3 main novels The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass.

Review: David Attenborough’s Life on Air

Greetings and salutations dear reader(s)! I hope the New Year started well for you, and if it hasn’t I hope it will get better. 🙂 Today’s review, if all goes as planned, is the first of many more book reviews to come on the blog. I’m not a person who makes New Year’s resolutions, but this year I decided to make one regarding reading. Last year while I was reading Peter Frankopan’s The Silk Roads, which took me quite a while to read, I noticed that during the gaps in reading I forgot what I read a few chapters earlier. Since I was reading for the pure joy of reading I wasn’t making any notes; neither did I anticipate that I would be reading that book for such a long time. Those damn endnotes will be the death of me. 🙂 So this year I decided to do a more focused reading – keeping a reading journal where I’ll make notes about the reading material etc. I also decided to do a book review on the blog about the books that I read this year, or a book series review if that’s what I’m reading. Keep your fingers crossed that I manage to do this and wish me luck. 🙂
