Then, it’s another Old School Wednesday here at The Book Smugglers! This time it’s Thea’s turn, as she reviews The Shadow in the North by Philip Pullman, the second book in the Sally Lockhart quartet (which is well on the way to becoming one of Thea’s favorite series’ period).

    Sally Lockhart and her friends rock! So glad that you’re continuing to review the other books in the series. Just be sure to keep a hankie or box of tissues close by while reading them.

    I finished Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe on Friday and can’t wait to discuss it with you and fellow blog readers.

    Oooh !!

    “Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe” looks amazing!! Looking forward to that one 😀 Hope it turns out to be a good read, or I’ll feel so disappointed. I hate it when I fall in love with a cover and the actual book turns out to be a piece of crap. hehe 😉
