Random Wednesday #23 - Let's Book it! - A Discovery Of Witches

Hey lovelies!

How has your week been treating you so far? Has it gone by quickly or is it passing at a snails pace?
(Mine is going at the rate of the latter)

I thought I would switch it up a bit and just share aka gush about a book I'm reading rather than share a bunch of my instagram photos that you may or may not have seen already. **I hope you don't mind!**

After finishing the Hunger Games I was at a loss. I had a bevy of books still waiting for me to choose them to be my next read but I was afraid that due to how invested I was in the Hunger Games trilogy of books and the story that I wouldn't be able to find anything that grabbed (and held) my attention. It's happened before when I began reading the Tiger's Curse books by Colleen Houck. (PS - I cannot wait until the next book in the series Tiger's Destiny)

Lucky for me I did have The Clockwork Prince to read which is the second in a series that is pretty amazing. If you haven't read The Mortal Instruments OR it's prequel series The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare I HIGHLY recommend them.

Anywho, about the subject of the post, A Discovery of Witches.
(PS - I just realized this is the first book in a trilogy! Yesssss!!!!)



I'm not going to lie...I intially saw the cover of this book awhile back and it caught my attention. I had a gift card for Barnes and Noble that I thought it couldn't hurt to buy it and give it a go. My lovely (and talented) monther gave me a Nook for Christmas so I was itching to get some books for it.

Now...I cannot put A Discovery of Witches down!!! It's nearly 600 pages and I swear it has flown by! As of today I have 153 pages left and I desperately don't want it to end!

**I will say that I didn't get "hooked" immediately. It took me a good bit of chapters before I couldn't put it down.**
Have you heard of the book? Has it been on your "to read" list? Better yet...are you reading it??


That's me...on Chapter 33!

And as of yesterday I changed my polish from mint green to black...in honor of the book? Maybe...maybe not. Sterotypical...yes...but either way it makes sense! Plus...it has sparkles in it.

I hope you enjoyed the little departure from the normal Randomness but hey...it IS supposed to be random!

Talk to you soon!

  1. I just read "The Fault in Our Stars" and realized that I painted my nails just like the main character, subconsciously! It was crazy...

  2. I got out a bevy of books from the library last week and I haven't managed to get into ANY of them! I think I need to go back to the YA part of the library, haha! I'll have to check out the book as I *always* love your recommendations.

    ALSO DID I TELL YOU THAT THE TIGER BOOKS ARE BEING MADE INTO MOVIES?!?!? But I shouldn't get excited. My heart is still broken over Jace's casting.

  3. I read it a few months back but I could honestly not get into it - I think I was thrown by the fact that I know the writer in her other career as professional historian and it just threw me.

  4. I need to read the Tiger books!!!! Maybe I'll just go ahead and order the first one so it's waiting for me when I have a chance to read for fun again (school makes that a bit difficult). Will definitely be checking out "A Discovery of Witches"-- Harkness's academic books look amazing, too!

    Also, have you read anything by Diana Wynne Jones? I would suggest the Chrestomanci series-- takes a minute to get into, but soooo good.

    Happy midweek, sweet Jenna! ;D
