Book Club Review: A Discovery of Witches

A Discovery of Witches

I have decided that I am no longer going to involve myself with trilogies or book series unless the first was a life changer.

When they are interesting, but not game changers, I get too involved and then about half way through book 2, I ask why the heck I'm reading it.

A Discovery of Witches was just that. A good book, but underwhelming.
One of my friends who reviewed it on Goodreads said, “I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the sequel. I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys reading about the supernatural but found Twilight annoying/badly written/not adult enough.”
I wasn't all that excited about the sequels… I read them, but reading about post-grad school Twilight wasn't quite my thing either.
I may need to go back to Anne Rice in order to erase the damage Twilight has done to my opinions of vampire novels.
Stick to the basics, Erin… Sheesh

I was pretty excited that I was actually reading a book. Since I had Jaxon, it’s been hard to read, because I only have the time during naps and after he goes to bed… If I don’t have anything else to do.
And I always have something else to do.
Laundry, dishes, cleaning, sleeping… Not necessarily in that order.

Hopefully I will get better about being more selective with my reading choice.
I’m glad that it was for book club, but now I think I may need to go back and read all the ones that I missed this past year.

Does anyone else find that reading is getting harder after having kiddos?
Has anyone else read the series?
What did you think about it?

Do you have any books to suggest?
