I really wanted to like this book because I had all three, so I wouldn’t have to wait to begin the next book after finishing the first…well…I didn’t make it to #2.
I can’t really put my finger on the reason I couldn’t get into this story. Although I have several friends who absolutely loved all three books! You’ll just have to read them to see what you think!
The story revolves around a young woman named Diana Bishop. She comes form a long line of powerful witches and despite it all, Diana tries her hardest to NOT practice magic. Although one day she accidentally calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript while doing research in the Oxford Bodleian Library. Unfortunately for Diana, word spreads to other witches, vampires and even demons who soon start hanging around the library.
The story was interesting, but I feel like the author would get long winded in her writing and I would get bored. Then something would happen and it would grab my attention again only soon to be back in the rut again. Please let me know if you have read this book and what you thought!
