The Hearts of Men by Nickolas Butler
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I didn’t love this. Most of the characters were unlikeable, unhappy, unpleasant, or all three. Normally I like a novel with challenging characters but I just didn’t warm to any of these. I was also alienated by Butler’s use of women primarily as a means for the male characters to gain depth, or simply as damsels in distress.

La Belle Sauvage (Book of Dust 1) by Philip Pullman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I absolutely loved this! If I hadn’t been busy with holiday prep I would have read it in one sitting. 🙂 Can’t wait for the next one! I really need to go back and re-read the His Dark Materials trilogy in the meantime …
