Book Review

This is the first time I am recommending a book on the blog.  If you do nothing for yourself this week, go read (or listen to) A Discovery of Witches.  This is the most fantastic book I have read in a long time.  Deborah Harkness takes the supernatural vampire/witch genre to an entirely new (more adult) level.  If you enjoyed the fun nature of the Twilight series but wished that the characters were more believable and less, well...swoony, then you will love this book.  Even if you didn't like Twilight, you will love this.  
The writing is exquisite and you will not want it to end.  Discovery is the first of what will be a trilogy.  The second book is due out in 2012 and I am trying to figure out how I can possibly enjoy another book in the meantime.  

(FCC: I have not been compensated by the Author or Publisher for recommending this book.  I purchased the book with my own funds.)
