Northern Lights is the first in Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy. It tells the story of Lyra Belacqua as she journeys to the arctic. She is searching for a group of missing children, but the truth of what is really happening in the North is more shocking than she could have imagined.
This book has one of my favourites ever since I read it. On a recent trip to the USA, I listened to this book whilst driving through Yellowstone National Park. That really felt like magic.
A Salted Caramel White Russian
This is a simple twist on the classic, perfect ice cold to help you feel the breeze of the arctic as you read.
1 part Salted Caramel Kahlua
1 part Vodka
1 part cream or 2 parts milk
Pour the ingredients, in order, over ice. If you want to froth it up you could shake them in a cocktail shaker. You can add more milk or cream if you prefer it extra milky.
