Book Review- The Discovery of Witches

Not my image

This book was amazing! Love, love, loved this book. 
It is the first in what is going to be a three book series and I simply can not wait
until the next two come out. I really dont want to wait until next year!

I thought of this book as a more grown up version of the popular young adults series 
out there right now like Twilight, The House of Night, etc. 
This book was much, much better than those, in my opinion. 

It follows a witch in England who is reluctant to use her powers due to certain horrors in
her past. One day, as she is doing research in a library, she comes across a very
unusual book that appears to be enchanted. She thinks nothing of it and sends it back to the
stack. From that moment on, her life changes drastically. 
She meets a very old, and of course gorgeous, vampire and an adventure ensures. 

It takes place in England, France and America and the author does a great job at describing 
each place in detail without letting it become boring. 
The cast of characters is entertaining and there isnt a dull moment in the entire book.

I highly recommend this book and give it an enthusiastic rating of 5 stars. 

Rating: *****

Ooh, I'm glad you reviewed this! I've picked it up and flipped through it a couple times, but couldn't commit. I'm definitely going to add it to my list now though!

Hmmmm...that sounds right up my alley! I wish you had a nook instead of a kindle...then we could be e-book buddies. Sigh...
