Waiting on Wednesday #309

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Goodreads Description:

Eleven-year-old Malcolm Polstead and his dæmon, Asta, live with his parents at the Trout Inn near Oxford. Across the River Thames (which Malcolm navigates often using his beloved canoe, a boat by the name of La Belle Sauvage) is the Godstow Priory where the nuns live. Malcolm learns they have a guest with them; a baby by the name of Lyra Belacqua . . .

Hardcover, 452 pages
Expected publication: October 19th 2017 by David Fickling Books
Pre-Order here and here

This book is the one I am most excited about. Ahhh. Okay, fine, I might be more excited about book two and three, considering Lyra is adult in those, and just a baby in this one. BUT EVEN SO :D It is Philip! Eee! And it is the aaamazing His Dark Materials world. <3 Oh, how I am DYING to read this book. Have ordered so many different copies of it. I'm beyond excited. Going to love it so so much. And also dying to re-read the original trilogy first. Eee. I'm just so excited. Sigh. My cover reveals post. <3 So gorgeous.
What are you waiting for on this most epic Wednesday?


  1. I know it is awful to say this, but I never read anything from Pullman. I hope I get to read His Darks Materials series one day soon.

    Hope you love "The Book of Dust" Carina.

    Happy readings!
