Discovery of Witches
Discovery of Witches | 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.

What an interesting story. It's not action packed but it kept me completely enthralled. A nice smooth read with an excellently constructed backstory. I look forward to finishing the series.

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!

Mehso-so

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?

4thhouseontheleft 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. 4mo
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. 4mo
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) 4mo

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. 4mo
Liatrek Oh man I had to bail on this one and just ended up watching the show instead. 4mo
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. 4mo

We have been pretty much isolating since November except for the drs and vets. Yesterday one of my supports decided to drive us to the reservoir which recently opened to the public as we could get out but stay away from people. 15 minutes and it was bliss. Will need to find more natural things to do while we wait out this Covid disaster.

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?

Aims42 I bailed for that same reason. I just couldn‘t take it anymore and reading felt like a chore 🙄 You‘re not alone if you bail 😉 5mo
BookBosomed1 @Aims42 Oh, thank you for that affirmation and reassurance. I‘ve tried and I just feel tense, annoyed, and mad reading it, which I don‘t think is the intended goal. 🤣 5mo
Aims42 @BookBosomed1 Happy to help! 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. It worked out though, I bought the book at Goodwill and passed it along to a friend who LOVED it 😆 5mo

🥳 Kindle Deal today! The Trilogy for $1.99 🥳

Dragon One of my all time favourite trilogies- too bad I already own it - great deal! 🧛‍♂️ 5mo
tpixie @Dragon that‘s probably why it‘s on sale most people own it already! I listened to the first book when it 1st came out & loved it but somehow got sidetracked on other books ( I think because of clubs). I never finished the other 2, so I bought the deal and then I‘ll probably audiobook/eread all 3! 5mo
Dragon Thanks @tpixie it took me awhile to warm up to books 2&3 but give them a chance- they‘re worth it- I have read the whole trilogy 3 times - which is a record for me 💚🐉 5mo

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. 7mo
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!) 7mo

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 😂 7mo
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👍 7mo

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. 7mo
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! 7mo
BookNAround I went out and bought 2 and 3 immediately. I didn‘t expect to enjoy it nearly as much as I did so I‘m so glad for the push to read it. And yes, I‘d read along again. 7mo

It‘s the slowest read of this book I‘ve done, and I admit to finishing early anyway ☺️ Since Shadow of Night is my favorite of the trilogy (I know, I‘m weird, but part is set in my beloved Prague) I‘m definitely in on a read together, real time or otherwise. 7mo

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. 7mo
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. 7mo
Librarybelle Yes!! 7mo
katy4peas A few chapters behind, but I‘ve been reading a chapter a day and really enjoying it!! 7mo
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. 7mo

Technically, if I have to choose I prefer witches. I really prefer witches and vampires, which is why the tagged book is a witch favorite of mine. Funny story: when my Language Arts Supervisor started in my district, we had a discussion about books and he recommended the tagged book. Didn‘t think I‘d like it, but figured I had to give it a go bc, you know, supervisor. I figured he‘d ask what I thought. I did and he did. 😀 🧙
