A Discovery of Witches
A Discovery of Witches: A Novel | Deborah Harkness
A richly inventive novel about a centuries-old vampire, a spellbound witch, and the mysterious manuscript that draws them together. Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library. Diana has stumbled upon a coveted treasure lost for centuries-and she is the only creature who can break its spell. Debut novelist Deborah Harkness has crafted a mesmerizing and addictive read, equal parts history and magic, romance and suspense. Diana is a bold heroine who meets her equal in vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont, and gradually warms up to him as their alliance deepens into an intimacy that violates age-old taboos. This smart, sophisticated story harks back to the novels of Anne Rice, but it is as contemporary and sensual as the Twilight series-with an extra serving of historical realism.

4⭐️

This is type of story we all deserved from Twilight! A fun destinies intwined romance with a fight against good and evil to help protect creatures from the brink of extinction. My favorite part of this book was probably the constant referencing to different ideas and theories throughout history and Matthew was able to witness.

Schnoebs @HOTPock3tt finally getting around to posting my review for this beauty 😂 3d
HOTPock3tt That opening line though!! 🙌🏽♥️ the twilight we all deserved!! 🤗 and I loved the time references in the book as well.I loved imagining one person live thru all that and what it would‘ve felt like. One of my fave parts was the ideas of witches & vampires in the library!! I like to imagine it that way when I go! Also the descriptions of the bodelian since I would love to go!! @Schnoebs (edited) 2d

With respect to all you lovely lot that adore this book.... I detested it with a passion. Not helped by a terrible audio book narrator.... Managed about 80% then couldn't take any more lol. I won't tell you what I renamed it 😁😁 #notforme #unpopularopinion

I started the first book in the trilogy Saturday and just finished up today. Really enjoyed all the nerding out over scientific history that I wanted to keep going. Ended up picking the other two up at the book and about to start the next one.

@HOTPock3tt why didn‘t you tell me this was so good????

HOTPock3tt @Schnoebs Girl! I LOVE this series!! 😍🙌🏽 but I feel like it‘s an acquired taste. It doesn‘t appeal to everyone unfortunately 😐 so I‘m always careful when I recommend it 😅but I freakin loved it! And the TV series too! 2w
Schnoebs @HOTPock3tt I definitely want to check out the show after I‘m done with the series!!!! I‘m enjoying all the references to major people in history and I know there‘s going to be so much more in book 2 (20 pages in) 2w

Schnoebs @HOTPock3tt for now I can definitely say thank god for feminism and our right to get out of petticoats and corsets and into comfy pants!!! 2w
Schnoebs @HOTPock3tt I just finished the part with the wedding and then saying goodbye to Philippe. My heart. I can‘t. That was all too much emotion for not even getting to the halfway point of the book 😭😭😭 2w
HOTPock3tt Omg I loved their wedding!! It was so romantic that it was set in Elizabethan times and I loved their wedding night!!! 😎 I thought it was sweet that he made her wait lol 🤣 and Philippe was SUCH a father to her. I loved his acceptance of her. He was truly a charismatic and dynamic character!! Wow I need to reread this book! There is so much more to come in the second part!!! 😁 @Schnoebs (edited) 2w
HOTPock3tt I saw on goodreads that you‘re on the third book now! Second book spoilers ===> Omg how much did you love Diana learning about her powers with that coven in Elizabethan England!! 😃and Corra her firedrake! Plus Queen Elizabeth herself was a pretty fun character with her tantrums as well as Diana‘s father with his time walking!! 🤗 the only thing I missed was “the house” in present day and how witchy and strange it is!!” And her aunts 😎 2w
Schnoebs @HOTPock3tt The amount of times I cried over the father child relationships in this book were insane! I loved it so much! Gallowglass was definitely my favorite but Philippe was so amazing and thought so far ahead for how his actions will be taken in the future. I also loved everything about them starting their little family. I knew Diana learned so much there but I didn‘t realize the level until seeing it start to come up in book 3! 2w
HOTPock3tt Phillip REALLY adored her as his own daughter and took care of her!! It made me cry too how much he planned for her future and thought so far ahead to protect her. She was lucky to have TWO amazing fathers!!! And gallowglass‘ secret love for her was 🥰 one of my fave things about this series is how many layers each characters has!! Gallowglass and Philippe especially! And Diana became SUCH a powerful witch when she went into the past! LOVE!! ❤️ 2w
HOTPock3tt @Schnoebs Btw I‘m still not over how sexy their honeymoon was!!! 😍 Deb harkness writes sexy scenes so well, I wish she wrote more of them!! I know she doesn‘t want her books to be about that 🤣but STILL!! 😃 (edited) 2w
Schnoebs @HOTPock3tt yes 🙌🙌🙌🙌 those scenes were 🔥🔥🔥 2w
Schnoebs @HOTPock3tt omg, I just got to the part where Diana see‘s Gallowglass‘s tattoo!!!! 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 my heart can‘t handle this. This is not ok 2d
HOTPock3tt It‘s totally not ok!!!! 😭😫it was SO sad yet brilliantly written! Especially with how he protected her and waited for her for like 500 years!! Not even with so much as a KISS in return! So sad yet so sweet that my little heart can‘t take it 😔 @Schnoebs 2d

Rating: 10/5 stars.

The rating has to overshoot from 5 to 10 because Deborah Harkness is a genius and I am in love with the book, story, characters and all. I also happen to like Baldwin.

Expect me to reread this series just because I can.

Mehso-so

I enjoyed the start and slow-building setup of the first 300 or so pages...but ultimately found the fanatical, tunnel-visioned romance at the book‘s center to be objectionable, and the two main characters themselves rather unlikable by the end. Haven‘t decided yet whether I‘ll continue the series.

I really enjoyed this book, although I do have the tendency to see the best. After finishing I saw SO many negative reviews on Goodreads, and I do see how some people would view the relationship between Diana and Matthew as unhealthy. I however, saw it as two people in love, fighting together for that love, instead of Matthew being a controlling douche. There were a million Twilight similarities.

So I'm reading this book, and I'm REALLY enjoying it so far. I'm only 117 pages in, but I'm thinking it's great so far. My only complaint is this: WHITE SPACE. The margins are very narrow, the font is tiny, and the line spacing is thin. Which leaves minimal white space. And there are 579 pages.

Does anybody else struggle with books like this? I could understand if it was a mass market sized paperback, but it's one of the larger sized hardcovers.

I just remembered that this bad boy is due back to the library on October 1st! It has 579 pages. Wonder if I can finish it by Tuesday?

I'm not normally one to pick up one book before I've finished another, but as I'm only 37 pages into Legendary, I guess I'll have to make an exception.

sprainedbrain Speaking of adaptations... I have the show for this book series on my list. Do you like it so far? 2mo
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain Actually I LOVE it!! 😃♥️ which is shocking!! I‘m pretty sure it‘s the only recent adaptation I‘ve managed to watch the whole season of! The 2 MC‘s have a lot of chemistry and we got to see some really sexy Diana/Matthew scenes that were alluded to behind the scenes in the book! 🔥 my only gripe with the show is Diana isn‘t as ‘high ranking‘ of a professor as she is in the book... and that was a major appeal of the book with me 🤔 (edited) 2mo
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain Also, another complaint about the show: “The House” was one of my fave characters in the book♥️ but it‘s not as ‘active‘ and crazy as it was in the books!! There were some ‘the house‘ moments, but it was a major thing I was looking forward to in the tv adaptation and they kind of dropped the ball on that 😕 2mo
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt ok, sounds like I definitely need to check this out! Thank you❤️ 2mo

LibrarianRyan Zombies. Excellent author 3mo
xicanti He should try THE RAVEN BOYS by Maggie Stiefvater and ASSASSIN‘S APPRENTICE by Robin Hobb. Both kick off series that feature strong friendships and plenty of excitement. 3mo
stephothebesto And the sequel, Crooked Kingdom. He might also like Sabriel (and the rest of The Old Kingdom trilogy), and a classic, The Golden Compass. Oh, and anything by Laini Taylor. 3mo
twohectobooks @stephothebesto yes to Sabriel! 3mo
Bookzombie I was going to suggest Rot & Ruin like @LibrarianRyan . 🙂 3mo
Chrissyreadit Thank you so much @twohectobooks he is checking it out! 3mo
Chrissyreadit Thank you @Cortg yes- we have those- he enjoyed them! 3mo
Chrissyreadit @MoonWitch94 thanks! He is going to check that one out! 3mo
Chrissyreadit @LibrarianRyan thanks! The Rangers Apprentice is a long time favorite of his-so is the Alchemyst series. He is 1/2 through Rot and Ruin since it was on one of my shelves and you recommended it, we are adding the rest to his list to see what he wants next. You rock! 3mo
Chrissyreadit @stephothebesto thank you so much for your recommendations!!!! we have the golden compass and listened to it many years ago but he did not love it. He is going to add Sabriel to his list. He tried Six of Crows and said he did not love it, but I‘m not sure why. He has read all the Laini Taylor books. 3mo
Chrissyreadit @xicanti thank you for your suggestions! He‘s interested in those. my mom is going to look for those at used bookstores for him this week. She‘s in Portland and asked for the list of the books he is interested in. 3mo
Chrissyreadit @Bookzombie thank you! He was flying through Rot and Ruin last night. I‘m going to have my mom look for The Scorpio Races on her used book store adventure in Portland. 3mo
Chrissyreadit @LibrarianRyan - librarian extraordinaire for sure!!! He is absolutely into YA and adult books as well if you have thoughts- his favorite adult/YA series before The Discovery Of Witches was The Belgariad- he read that around 9 or 10 though. He also liked Piers Anthony, Xanth books and Incarnations of Immortality...if you have any other thoughts 🥰👏🙌😘 3mo
LibrarianRyan @Chrissyreadit let me look. I want to make sure I have titles right. How old is he again? 3mo
Chrissyreadit @LibrarianRyan he turned 15 in Feb. he‘s sweet and geeky- but for perspective is a full time student this year at our community college via dual enrollment- (cyber security major). Reading is his escape. I‘m going to email you. 3mo
Bookzombie @Chrissyreadit The author of Rot & Ruin also writes adult books. Some of which tie into Rot & Ruin in a way. He might want to look him up online to see if he is interested in his other books. 3mo
Bookzombie Also, I love the Lockwood & Co series so he might look at that one. 3mo
Bookzombie And I would think he might like the Jackaby series. 3mo
Chrissyreadit @Bookzombie yes! I think your right about Jackaby! He said he did not like The Screaming Staircase- but I need to ask him why. 3mo
Chrissyreadit @Bookzombie thank you so much for jumping in with so many suggestions! 3mo

Mehso-so

This book was just ok for me. It dragged on and on. I did like the story and the characters but could have been cut back a bit. Too many details and not enough action during the first half. I really had to push through to finish. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Crewgurl I completely agree. 3mo
