A Discovery of Witches 

Deep in the heart of Oxford’s Bodleian Library, Diana Bishop – a young scholar and the descendant of witches – unearths an enchanted alchemical manuscript.  Wanting nothing to do with sorcery, she banishes the book to the stacks.  But her discovery has set a fantastical underworld stirring, and soon a horde of daemons, witches, and other creatures descends upon the library.  Among them is the enigmatic Matthew Clairmont, a vampire with a keen interest in the book.

Over the summer, Wild Card and I were Snapchatting each other passages from the books we were reading.  I was reading Drums of Autumn; she was reading the All Souls Trilogy.  We agreed to swap – I let her borrow Outlander, she let me borrow the trilogy.

I’ll admit I was skeptical at first, but she didn’t steer me wrong.  I loved this book.  Too bad I forgot to bring the other two home from school for break.  It’s nice to read a series all at once; sometimes the details get fuzzy if I take a break.

I was pleasantly surprised to feel an Outlander vibe from these books.  Badass heroines, fierce yet gentle husbands; the similarities were definitely there, and it made me love this even more.  I can’t wait to read the rest of the trilogy.
