Today is a day I’ve been waiting for. It’s the release day for A Discovery of Witches, a tv series on Sky and Now tv based on my favourite books by Deborah Harkness. I am obssessed with these books. I have all of them, including a book about the World of All Souls. I’ve read them a few times, once with the facebook group as part of the annual real time read. My books are still in boxes so I’ve had to borrow some goggle images:
I’ve mentioned them before and will definitely be going on about them (sorry Twitter followers) again. It’s an amazing unique fantasy world with characters you will love, a world you will not want to leave. It begins with Diana finding a lost manuscript in the Bodleian library which everyone wants, she is pulled back into the magical world she didn’t want to be a part of.
Deborah Harkness is an amazing writer and she is a lovely person, always keeping fans up to date and connecting with us online.
I watched episode one of the series this morning,whilst having breakfast, I couldn’t wait, it was on record at 2a.m. Only fellow All Souls fans and other book or tv fans would understand how excitied I was and I did plan another blog post today but sorrry I can’t help but rave about this. I loved episode one, everything was perfect! No spoilers though.
Take a look at the Trailer here
Not sure on the US release date I think it’s next year but the next book in the series is out next week. I was fortunate enough to pre-order a signed copy from Waterstones. So exciting.
I’ve had such a crazy couple of weeks with moving and I’m still not unpacked and sorted yet but my internet is now up and running so I’m hoping to get back to normal very soon. Exciting moving and then a new series and two new books this month, Times Convert and the new Carlos Ruiz Zafon I have been waiting years to read. I really need to stop buying books now and read more but there’s just so many.
Thanks for reading my post and sticking with me during my busy time. I have a Ninja Book Box unboxing coming very soon I promise, still trying to fit everything in but you know how is goes.
Have you watched the series or read the books? No spoilers please but tell me how much you love them in the comments 🙂
