What are you reading?

More specifically, which book of fiction has you enthralled at this moment? Last year, after being urged on by friends and book reviews, I read ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ by Swedish author/journalist Stieg Larsson. I hated it with a passion, though the writing style was sophisticated and complex, the story was quite disturbing.


Happily a book of fiction was suggested to me and I have adored it, in fact I devoured it and so have the friends and family I recommended it to.


 ‘A Discovery of Witches’ by historian Deborah Harkness is a fantastic read. This book consumed me for 3-days and nights, almost 600 pages that I could not put down!! Has anyone else read it?

It is a treasure, a book about books, history, Oxford, magic, alchemy, mystery, passion, vampires witches and more.

After reading it. I could not stop thinking about the characters and story, they remained with me for many days, alive inside me. I really enjoyed the mythic realm. There are two more books to come in this series.

Isn’t fiction a most wonderful gift to those of us who enjoy to read it?! After the witches book I read Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins. I highly recommend it!!  And currently I am reading Cleopatra by Stacy Schiff.

Ok, what are you reading? What books of fiction have you enjoyed and would you recommend?


Update Summer 2014

Since this original post I have read two more books from the All Souls Trilogy, by Deborah Harkness. They are wonderful, very enjoyable and highly recommended.
