Coffee and Dickens, tis the season

We have had a lovely day.

Hansel and Gretel at The MAC Belfast with our girls. It was fantastic, (it is every year). And very kindly the girls ๐Ÿ‘ญ allowed me peace and quiet, and coffee โ˜•to finish my book ๐Ÿ“™which I have very much enjoyed.

Yesterday's post

For some reason my post yesterday didn't work. Annoying, because the are dated.

Totally recommend these books. Still my favourite of Hardinge's stories. I think her writing has developed a lot since, but I love the adventure and the little world in these.

Pick up #flybynight if you can

Jon McGregor

I am a HUGE Jon Mcgregor fan, I love Remarkable Things, have read it a few times and it remains special. The everyday lives of a street shown to be extraordinary. The intimacy we have to the characters is so well achieved.
The Remarkable Things in the picture is a first edition and was a very special present from @geniebooks
When we started dating

Dragons and petticoats

A Jane Austen with Dragons?
Oh I know people will slate me for saying this but that it what it made me think of.
I enjoyed these two books, they were fun and unpretentious.
Imagine a Jane Austen heroine with a scholarly and very unladylike interest in archeology and nature. Especially in dragons who are out there to be sought out, but dangerous and little understood... #mariebrennan #anaturalhistoryofdragons #thetropicofserpents

Give Away from @thereaderandthechef

And a beautiful photo too!

The Lie Tree

New Japanese Cover ๐Ÿฏ

CONFESSION:
I have stolen this from Frances' twitter feed. But it is so pretty I felt I had to share. (sorry Frances)

๐ŸŽ„ Day 2 of Christmas ๐ŸŽ„
Spent this morning trying to get the living room ready for the tree ๐ŸŽ„
Now it is time for me to hide. I have a very beautiful wife, ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ’ž who gets rather possessive/obsessive over the decorating.๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ It may be time to take the girls ๐Ÿ‘ญ to the park ๐Ÿž soon ๐Ÿ”œ

Oh yes the book! ๐Ÿ˜€ got this beauty last Christmas, am about a quarter of the way through. Very good but ludicrously long winded. I love Dickens but for me this is not his best. ๐Ÿ“š

La Belle Sauvage... The Book Of Dust

Philip Pullman

Genuinely mixed feelings about this book. I really enjoyed the first half but the second felt overly linear and almost like a tick list of things he needed to incorporate for later.

It is of course well written and of a very high standard and I quite expect that the next two books will blow my socks off.

Also there was a kind nun! Nice to see that at least one person is allowed to have a faith ๐Ÿ˜‡ and not be totally evil ๐Ÿ˜ˆ
