So I read this book because I can never actually remember if I’ve read it before. I know I’ve watched the movie so I can never remember if what I’m remembering is the book or the movie. After reading it I think I’ve never read it before (or if I had I did not remember the ending at all).
In this book we follow Lyra in a world that is similar to ours as she travels from where she grew up at the university up to the arctic north for reasons that even she does not totally understand.
Sometimes I wonder if I should just change the name of this blog to Bookish Blurb since I never do anything except talk about books now.
Anyway, this is a teen historical fantasy novel set in Paris. It’s kind of an alternate history in which there are magical people and magical elements. This is essentially a heist novel in which this group of underdogs try to steal an item and end up saving the world. However the thing that redeems this book is its characters.
This is a fantasy book set in a world where memories can be “bound” into books and thus erased from your mind. We follow Emmett Farmer who realizes he is a binder (one with the ability to bind peoples memory).
This is a Japanese YA fantasy novel. It’s a bit hard to explain what this book is about but we follow a girl who is really good with these magical creatures and just wants to do the best she can not realizing the political implications of her actions.
