    I just finished Discovery of Witches. I'll definitely be reading the next in the trilogy (hope it's as good!).

    I'm almost halfway through Discovery of Witches and liking it so far.

    I'm about 100 (of 600) pages into book 2 and it's pretty good, though there are a lot of new characters to keep track of. (If I weren't on a work trip until Saturday, I would probably be close to finished - but I'm trying to space my reading because I have a lot of travel time)

    Re: What are you reading?

    I'm reading The Raphael Affair by Iain Pears for my book club. It's the first in his Art History Mystery series. Light, fun and educational too, regarding a long-lost Raphael painting in a small church in Rome.

    I'm still reading Across Many Mountains and Island of Vice, but I've been so busy with other things that I haven't had much time to read. I just received a copy of Jennifer Weiner's new book, The Next Big Thing and I really want to just stop everything and read it now! I'm going to use my willpower and wait until I have a quiet afternoon to read the whole thing in one sitting!

    Let us know what you thought of it. I'm a huge fan of some of his books.

    I haven't! But I certainly will now...

    I finished the second book on the plane ride back yesterday and really enjoyed it. Though I wasn't left with the "OMG, need the next book now" feeling.

    I'm almost done with While You Were Dead by C.J. Snyder. I think I got it as a free book on Amazon, and I see why. I don't recommend it, but I'll stick it out and finish the thing, just because. I'm ready to read something else!

    I love it so far (very reminiscent of Garp, don't know if that was one of your favourites), but I had to interrupt it because after languishing forever on the library wait list for Stephen King's 11/22/63 my copy finally came in! Hoping to finish it in the next couple of days...I'm working nights and it can get slow. Then, not two days later, the library got its copy of Rhiannon Frater's Siege, so I'll have to get on that one next.

    Re: What are you reading?

    Seeing everyone reading it on here, I downloaded Discovery of Witches this weekend and started reading it. I'm about 100 pages in and enjoying it. Funny part is that I really had no idea what to expect - I was just going off of how many people here were reading it. When Matthew showed up and he was described, I just started laughing - because my husband says I am obsessed with "certain creatures" (sorry, can't remember how to post spoiler tags and don't want to put something wrong in here if anyone doesn't know) and I really had no idea these "creatures" were in this book!!
