Right now, A Discovery of Witches is my favorite. I think the cast is great, & I didn‘t mind small changes or what was left out. Could have done with less politicking in the first season though. #sundayfunday @ozma.of.oz

ozma.of.oz That‘s a fun pick! Thanks for sharing! 7d
WJCintron So far, the series The Queen‘s Gambit by Walter Tevis. They did an excellent job with set dressings, wardrobe and following almost every detail to a T. Even the dialogue is spot on! LOVE when they respect the books and the author‘s work which is where the story was born in the first place. 😃🙌 7d
Scochrane26 @WJCintron I still haven‘t watched that one yet or read the book. I‘ve heard such good reviews about it, so I need to watch soon. 6d
WJCintron @Scochrane26 I really recommend it. They are both great!🙌😃 I don‘t think you‘ll be disappointed. Keep me posted. 👍 5d

I ran across the tv series on AMC+ and gave it a go because I liked the cast. The chemistry between the leads was hot enough to melt your damn teeth so I had to pick up the books once I realized they were a thing. I really like this one! I‘m a science nerd and loved the academic bits that others apparently have found boring (according to other reviews). I really liked the secondary characters and how the author plays with the genre. Good stuff!

Vansa I loved this series!I absolutely love how cleverly she weaves in vampire stories with scientific explanations,and the bits about DNA testing and so on are excellent.And when they travel to the Elizabethan Age... absolutely LOVE it. 1w
Ericalambbrown @Vansa Exactly! And OF COURSE Christopher Marlowe was a daemon! 🤣 The whole thing with species decline and blood rage . . . I love that the vampires are all using their time in scientific discovery. But I also kinda really want Gallowglass to get his own book. 1w
CarolynM Supernatural stuff is really not my thing, but I enjoyed this book a lot and the next one even more🙂 I got distracted and didn‘t finish the third one, I hope to get back to it one day. 1w
SamAnne All these comments have just prompted me to stack a book Indefinitely didn‘t think was my genre! 1w

Loved reading this book, couldn‘t put it down.
We went to Oxford today and had to of course take in some of the sights where the book is set!
Top Left: The Radcliffe Camera
Top Right: The Bodleian Quad
Bottom Left: All Souls College

My husband and I have been terribly remiss about getting our alumni reading cards for the Bodleian, we need to do that so next time we can go and read in Duke Humfrey‘s!

I'm enjoying reading a book like this! Plus, I've only listened to the audiobooks, so reading this in print has been fun- forgot Matthew's creepiness, but I guess that's why it's sometimes referred to as Twilight for adults, lol. Two more chapters to go!

**Also, if you like challenges like this, then A Night in the Lonesome October is 31 chapters that match the 31 days of October. I've re-read that a few times.

MidnightBookGirl @ErinSueMreads so the book opens on Sept 18th, so you read chapter 1, then chapter 2 and 3 happen on Sept 22nd, so you read them on that day, and I think it goes until October 31, mostly one or two chapters that match up to the dates@ 3mo

Harkness's writing style has a simple elegance to it. I can only imagine the level of research that went into writing this story. It's refreshing to see a novel of this genre and subject matter finally treated with a certain level of genuinity.

Just amazing. It doesn't happen that often that a book sings this perfectly in harmony with my soul. The story moves at a slow pace, which gives time to describe the ordinary things, like what Diana eats, or how she commutes to work. I absolutely loved the parts in the library, how she requests books, how she handles and takes notes on them. The romance happened a bit too quickly maybe, but every other part makes up for it. Loved, loved, loved it!

It was a very slow beginning that I almost put it down. Then halfway through it picked up but then it felt like too much was crammed in before the end. I am intrigued and will be reading the next book in the series but I'll give it a couple books before picking it up.

I usually like reading a book before I watch things based on it so I started reading this one. But it‘s kind of… not good? I‘m going to keep reading to see if the writing gets better since it is loved by many but not sure it‘s for me.

Maybe I‘m just burnt out on the idea of vampire romance.

Does it get better?

alisiakae No, it does not get better. I stuck with it to the end on my 2nd try because I was in the right mood for it, and ended up giving it a thumbs up. I finished the whole series, and they get progressively worse. I liked it just enough to keep going to find out how everything was resolved (there was also a character in the 2nd & 3rd books I LOVED). I'd bail now if you're not enjoying it. 10mo
ElizaMarie I liked the first 3 books (but I also did them #Audio) and sometimes with more dull writing listening to it helps (?). I am really struggling with the last one (also on #Audio), but the show really is good, I am enjoying it. 10mo
Avanders I also bailed on this one… I got so far (60% done?), googled some spoiler reviews to see if it got better, and firmly decided, after reading a bunch of spoilers, to absolutely not finish reading the book. Not for me either… 🤷🏽‍♀️ (edited) 10mo

SkeletonKey @4thhouseontheleft @ElizaMarie @avanders - Thank you for the honest reviews! I‘m going to bail because I can tell it‘s going to eat up way more of my time than I want. If I were in a different mood maybe. I‘ll watch the show now though and not feel like I‘m missing much, haha. 10mo
Liatrek Oh man I had to bail on this one and just ended up watching the show instead. 10mo
SkeletonKey @Liatrek - That‘s my plan! The writing was so clunky and I‘m surprised an editor didn‘t catch all the weird inconsistencies in the first few chapters alone. 10mo

Does Matthew ever stop being a possessive dude? I‘m 200+ pages in, but I truly cannot stand him. I do love the dark academia aesthetic, science, and history. Do I keep going or bail?

Too many other great books out there to stick with “meh” books 😏 I think I made it halfway and a chapter started with something that made me roll my eyes and I just couldn‘t keep going.

I really enjoyed listening to this one as part of @MoonWitch94 ‘s read along. It was full of humor, likable characters, and interesting science and history that pulled me in. I find all of the evolution and DNA parts fascinating and think Harkness did a great job with research in order to be able to add that to her storyline. I couldn‘t put it down and I‘m looking forward to book 2!! #teammatthew

katy4peas I will say I don‘t like that Matthew is so possessive of Diana. However, it is explained that that is in a vampire‘s nature and I appreciate that he shows growth in being able to let her take charge of the time walking (because he has to) but he also shows growth in other ways where he lets her be herself and take care of herself and he tries to back down. She is also very independent in her own right. 13mo
Vansa Quite honestly, this book was still when Deborah Harkness was hewing to Twilight tropes- Matthew's domineering nature, Diana's deference to him to begin with,watching her while she sleeps and so on.She dismantles these tropes entirely, as you said,from the last third of the book and completely in the next 2( except for one more Twilight trope she keeps but only one!) 13mo

Finally finished my October #bookspin. I loved the worldbuilding and the atmosphere, didn't mind the slow pace, although it lagged in the middle. That was also when vampire Matthew was at his most controlling and possessive and witch Diana at her most tell, don't show, about how sturbon and brave she is. But things do pick up at the end, with a bunch of conspirators coming together and the haunted Bishop house being the best house.

I forgot to post my review when I finished this!

I first read ADOW not long after it was first published, and I hated it. At the time, I think it came on the heels of Twilight and way too much vampire-centric fiction. This time around, I enjoyed it much more, and am already almost finished with the second book.

This is why I rarely give 👎 reviews. My reaction to a book is sometimes more about my mood than the book itself.

#pop21 #dowrtr

JamieArc I have the same thoughts about panning books. My reviews are so subjective to my mood at the time that it‘s best to take them with a grain of salt, whether they are not so stellar reviews or over-the-top good reviews 😂 13mo
Lizpixie I was exactly the same with this one too, I bought it when it was released the DNFed it fit over two years before picking it back up. It‘s now one of my favourite magical realism series👍 13mo

Thank you @MoonWitch94 for hosting the #DOWRTR
It made me finally cross this amazing book off my TBR! I loved the slow pace of the schedule. (I only read ahead the last couple chapters because it was just so good) I loved the characters and the magical world of creatures. Such an interesting take on the normal witches and vampires. And of course I enjoyed the forbidden romance of Diana & Matthew. I'll definitely be reading the rest of the series.

#Chapter43 #November1st #DOWRTR

This chapter is bittersweet & the first time I read it, I was teary-eyed when I saw the note Matthew leaves for Sarah & Em. Such a sweet gesture.

📜What did you think of the novel? Did you enjoy it? Did it meet or exceed your expectations?

📖Would you like to move on to Shadow of Night as a group? The real-time read is more chaotic, but we could go at a simpler pace? Let me know below!

Librarybelle It was a bittersweet end! But, I‘m so glad I read this book, so thank you for leading the real time reading on Litsy! I did start Shadow of Night and had planned to do the chaotic real time read but would be interested in reading as a group in a not so very chaotic group read. 13mo
katy4peas I would read another one with the group. I have about 5% of the book left, but I know I will want to jump into the next book! I hope the rest of the series is as good as this first one! 13mo

I am so glad I finally took the time to read this book! Many thanks to @MoonWitch94 for hosting #DOWRTR . I was captivated by the mixture of history and alchemy and witches and vampires and daemons. The story unfolded nicely, and I plan to continue to the next book, using the real time reading guidance by Harkness.

Diana and Matthew‘s stories are very intriguing, and I cannot wait to learn a bit more.

Ch. 42: October 31st 🎃Halloween🖤

I found this chapter so beautiful & emotional. Matthew‘s gentle side shines in his interaction with kids trick or treating. I tear up reading this chapter when they prepare to leave the house.

📖What do you think of this chapter? How have you enjoyed the chapters we haven‘t discussed? Let‘s chat! #DOWRTR #AllSouls #SeasonoftheWitch

Librarybelle This was a sweet chapter, with lots of love but yet you could feel the sorrow and the uncertainty. 13mo
MoonWitch94 @Librarybelle I think that‘s why it makes me tear up. It‘s bittersweet & you can really feel the sorrow. Especially when Matthew is interacting with the kids; it made me think of how he must‘ve been a good Dad to his son who died. 13mo
Librarybelle Yes!! 13mo
katy4peas A few chapters behind, but I‘ve been reading a chapter a day and really enjoying it!! 13mo
Lynnsoprano That fairy princess‘s cousin visited our house last night! She was this beautiful little girl with a group who were all a bit older, who all pushed ahead of her to get candy. Like Matthew, I can‘t give kids just one piece, and we had far fewer kids than previous years-even last year, amazingly. So little princess got 4 pieces of candy, and I‘m getting choked up just thinking about the expression on her face. 13mo
