“Even if it means oblivion, friends, I’ll welcome it, because it won’t be nothing. We’ll be alive again in a thousand blades of grass, and a million leaves; we’ll be falling in the raindrops and blowing in the fresh breeze; we’ll be glittering in the dew under the stars and the moon out there in the physical world, which is our true home and always was.” Philip Pullman, The Amber Spyglass (via corpsicles)

Do I ever cross your mind?Cause you’re on mine all the timeI can’t believe how unfair life is sometimes.

A huge reason I want to go to Oxford one day is because of Lyra & Will’s bench.

BANNED: His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman

Published in 40 countries, Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy – The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass – has graced the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, San Francisco Chronicle, Book Sense, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists.

 The Golden Compass forms the first part of a story in three volumes. The first volume is  set in a world like ours, but different in many ways. The second volume  is set partly in the world we know. The third moves between many worlds.

In The Golden Compass, readers meet 11-year-old Lyra Belacqua, a precocious orphan growing up  within the precincts of Jordan College in Oxford, England. It quickly  becomes clear that Lyra’s Oxford is not precisely like our own—nor is  her world. In Lyra’s world, everyone has a personal dæmon, a lifelong  animal familiar. This is a world in which science, theology and magic  are closely intertwined.

The Subtle Knife is the second part of the trilogy that began with The Golden Compass. That first book was set in a world like ours, but different. This book begins in our own world.

In The Subtle Knife, readers are introduced to Will Parry, a young boy living in modern-day  Oxford, England. Will is only twelve years old, but he bears the  responsibilities of an adult. Following the disappearance of his  explorer-father, John Parry, during an expedition in the North, Will  became parent, provider and protector to his frail, confused mother. And  it’s in protecting her that he becomes a murderer, too: he accidentally  kills a man who breaks into their home to steal valuable letters  written by John Parry. After placing his mother in the care of a kind  friend, Will takes those letters and sets off to discover the truth  about his father.

 The Amber Spyglass brings the intrigue of The Golden Compass and The Subtle Knife to  a heartstopping close, marking the third and final volume as the most  powerful of the trilogy. Along with the return of Lyra, Will, Mrs.  Coulter, Lord Asriel, Dr. Mary Malone, and Iorek Byrnison the armored  bear, The Amber Spyglass introduces a host of new characters: the  Mulefa, mysterious wheeled creatures with the power to see Dust;  Gallivespian Lord Roke, a hand-high spy-master to Lord Asriel; and  Metatron, a fierce and mighty angel. And this final volume brings  startling revelations, too: the painful price Lyra must pay to walk  through the land of the dead, the haunting power of Dr. Malone’s amber  spyglass, and the names of who will live—and who will die—for love. And  all the while, war rages with the Kingdom of Heaven, a brutal battle  that—in its shocking outcome—will reveal the secret of Dust.
