“being a practiced liar doesn't mean you have a powerful imagination. many good liars have no imagination at all; it's that which gives their lies such wide-eyed conviction.“
OMG she‘s perfect! Love Ruth Wilson!

Looking forward to this one - might watch episode 1 tonight. 👍🏼
Hope you all got to catch the pilot episode tonight! I thought it was fabulous! I am now eagerly awaiting the next episode! I was also pleasantly surprised by the slightly creepy factor 😏 If you have watched it yet make sure that you do! Let me know what you think!

Today‘s the day the new series of Philip Pullman‘s His Dark Materials starts on the BBC1 at 8 pm. HBO and BBC jointly produced this so presumably is available elsewhere too.
Wow, this book was great! I can‘t believe I‘ve never read this series before. I was so drawn into this world and Lyra‘s journey, I was finding stuff to do around the house so I could finish this!
I can‘t wait to read the rest of this series.

The Golden Compass written by Philip Pullman. Chapter 1 p.1-14. This book takes place in an alternate universe where “daemons“ are real. A daemon is a supernatural creature but in the book, it's basically your soul in the form of a talking animal that goes wherever you go. I would classify this book as High Fantasy or Science Fiction because of the complex characters and journeys.
I was excited to read this since HBO is coming out with the first season this fall. I enjoyed the first several chapters and the last several chapters. I really struggled in the middle. I feel like you could just cut 100 pages out and have a better book. Even though I would say, it's worth the read.
Not Convinced I'll read the next book in the series. Maybe I'll wait to watch season 1 of the show before I decide.
I've finished one more book (tagged) for #BFC since classes started! While meal prepping a couple days ago. But maybe all of the reading I've been doing for classes counts for something? 😂 I have an intensive course that's eating up my Fridays and Saturdays for now, and when that's over I should be able to get into a better rhythm! Also still wearing a knee brace and not running, it's driving me crazy! #BookFitnessChallenge #bookdragons #BFCr3
I am ready! I know the film was trash, but I have high hopes they did it justice with the show🤞🏻
Tried and succeeded to get my pace under 11:00 min/mi today! My first mile was a warm-up pace of 11:28 min/mi, but I sped up for the last 1.5 miles. Fun #audiorun! Enjoying some middle grade fantasy, it's the perfect escape from starting seminary. 😂😊 #BFC #BFCr3 #BookFitnessChallenge #bookdragons
Started this audiobook yesterday because my hold came in unexpectedly early and it has a longer wait list than The Night Tiger, so I really need to finish it before it's due. I didn't read The Golden Compass in middle school when everyone was talking about it, since I lived in the Bible Belt and people said it was an evil propaganda tool from the atheists. 😂 Now I have many Christian friends who love it so I figured I'd give it a go! Good so far.
My first #readathon !
Last night's reading I finally finished this page while listening to my audiobook.
Meanwhile, if you haven't seen my last post, I'm looking for an audiobook to spend my last audible credit on before I cancel it. Tag your recommendations in the comments.
It‘s just as wonderful as I remember. I couldn‘t have been older than 12 when I first read this and it was one of my favorite books. After reading it, I wanted a daemon so bad. I‘m pretty sure I pretended my cat was a daemon. I‘m moving on to book 2 in the series. I never read those when I was younger. Not sure why.
Excitement level: CRITICAL!!!!
Just seen the His Dark Materials series trailer & I must say it looks very promising. It might just right some of the wrongs that horrible movie did.
Heck, it has the god-like Lin-Manuel Miranda in it! For that alone it triumphs! 😍😍😍
