More of A Discovery of Witches Please!
I'll admit it. I love a good paranormal book. The more magic, adventure, and interesting creatures, the better. I get teased endlessly because most of my favorites, in this genre, come from the young adult section. Yep, it's true. So, you can imagine my excitement when I received this book, A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness, and realized, it's my favorite genre, and it's for GROWN UPS!!!
The truth is, I read to escape. I want to leave the chaos of my daily life and be transported into another world. When my kids are tucked into bed and the house is quiet, I'd rather curl up with a good book than sit watching bad TV.
A Discovery of Witches took me away, far, far, away. Deborah Harkness used gorgeous imagery and unique characters to suck me in. She had me breathless, and left me thirsty for more. Now, I have read A LOT of vampire books. But this one, this one had me BEGGING for more!!! I fell in love with our heroine, Diana. I don't know about you, but, I just adore a smart, capable, yet vulnerable heroine. Diana is so real, raw, so easy (eventually) connect to.
I am still hungry for more.
Ahhh the romance, the adventure, the history, the intelligence, the beauty... in a world filled with so much uncertainty, it's fun to imagine that there is more going on, all around us, every day. Whether your a fan of the paranormal, or have never picked up a "vampire book,", this is a great summer read. Take it on the plane, take it to the beach, take it to bed, you won't be disappointed! I could not put it down. It has everything you could ever want.
