Month of Thanks

Hi Y’all! It is November and that is always the month I am reminded that there are tons of things that I am thankful for in my life. This year November will be known as the Month of Thanks. I am going to do 30 days of Thanks here on Geeky Bloggers Book Blog! Each day I will highlight one author (and the book they wrote that moved me) and one blogger (and their awesomeness) that I am thankful for! These are not in any particular order and by no means is 30 going to cover everyone that I love.

Month of Thanks

I am thankful for Deborah Harkness and her ability to revive the epic read!  It has been a long time since I have craved what I call “EPIC” reads but her series is one that I count down too.  The huge size and the epic amount of information in both books so far has not been a deterrent at all.  In fact, I have left each book wanting more and wishing I could feed her chocolate and caffeine to write faster.  What she has done though is open me up to looking at books over 500 pages again.  I avoided them for a while but I am over that now!

“Together we lifted our feet and stepped into the unknown”—the thrilling sequel to the New York Times bestseller A Discovery of Witches

Deborah Harkness exploded onto the literary scene with her debut novel, A Discovery of Witches, Book One of the magical All Souls Trilogy and an international publishing phenomenon. The novel introduced Diana Bishop, Oxford scholar and reluctant witch, and the handsome geneticist and vampire Matthew Clairmont; together they found themselves at the center of a supernatural battle over an enchanted manuscript known as Ashmole 782.

Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches’ cliffhanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana and Matthew into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew’s old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens.

Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries, delivering one of the most hotly anticipated novels of the season.

I am thankful for Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviews for being a really good blogging neighbor!  I have seriously gotten to know this kick ass chick pretty well over the last year and it has been a blast.  While we do have some similar reading tastes, I can always count on her to introduce new authors into my life.  I also appreciate her ability to manage, organize, and execute a plan once she has it in the works.  She is amazing to read and wonderful to be friends with!

    Yes, Kimba rocks, I am happy to be working with her on Fire and Ice. Ugn, I still can’t believe I haven’t read Shadow of Night yet, I was eyeing for so long and I have my copy just need to get to it!

    Kimba is awesome! I love her eclectic taste in books, and my wish list has grown considerably because of her blog. 🙂

    I still need to read A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES! I have to say that I’m a little intimidated by the page number count, but I just need to get over it, LOL.
