Current Read - A Discovery of Witches


I ordered this on a whim from Amazon. The Sunday Times reckons its "Intelligent and off the wall, it will be irresistible to Twilight fans." I've started reading it and so far so good. I've also been reading The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, full of magic and mystery, I first blogged about it at the beginning of October, and I would highly recommend.

Last but not least I finally finished Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella. It was ok, but at times I just didn't want to carry on reading it, it was more than a little bit slow and boring. In the end it was alright, but on the whole a little bit blah. I'm hoping A Discovery of Witches will be more up my street.

I'm going to be placing another Amazon order this week, I'd love any book recommendations or to know some of your favourite reads.

  1. Hey. I've been reading a great book called We are Muslim Please by Zaiba Malik. It's about a Muslim girl growing up in Bradford in the 70s and how she is caught between the two societies. She is now a freelance journalist, worked for The Guardian, BBC and Channel4. It's quite good, especially if you know Bradford at all. Might not be some peoples cup of tea but I am finding it interesting :-)

  4. I loved Twenties Girl, such a shame you didn't enjoy it. I suppose it is a bit silly and very much an easy girly read, but I like tosh like that x

  5. If you like kind of medieval/fantasy types (such as Lord of the Rings etc), then the Song of Ice and Fire series is excellent - the first one, Game of Thrones was the tv series that had Sean Bean in it :) X

  6. I love seeing recommended reads from my favourite bloggers :) I'm currently reading The Magicians which has been described as Harry Potter for adults. It's been interesting so far so might be worth a look.

    Garden Spells and The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Allen Addison are very good if you like your stories with a sprinkling of fantasy and magic.

  7. I read Divergent recently and LOVED it. It reminded me a little of the Hunger Games books (which I loved) but I actually liked it better. It turns out it is the first in a series and the next book does not come out until next year so I am anxiously waiting.
