https://www.wsj.com/amp/articles/jane-austen-tom-lefroy-kipling-emma-persuasion-...

Hey #pemberlittens check out this article! While I knew of Jane's relationship with Tom Lefroy, this article was very interesting. Jane fell in love at Christmas....how magical! Shame it didn't end up with a happy ending. #Emma #Persuasion

RaeLovesToRead I remember watching Becoming Jane when it came out and being devastated at the end. My friend was like "you knew she didn't get married, Rae!" but I didn't know and thought they would end up living happily ever after ??? 19h
sprainedbrain I‘m torn between 😂 at that ‘breaking news from 1795‘ and 😥 again for Jane. ❤️ 19h
MoonWitch94 @RaeLovesToRead I know! I loved that movie & I cried so hard. @sprainedbrain Right? I laughed at the headline, which made me read the article. 19h

I read halfway and couldn‘t take it anymore. I was thoroughly disappointed in this one. It looked fun & cute, but actually was the opposite. I thought the MC, Roxanne, was vapid & uninteresting. The dialogue was sluggish, drawn out and oversaturated with unnecessary details.
✨Thanks to NetGalley for this ARC✨

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
Sweet, Adorable, Realistic(mostly), well-developed, good dialogue, and tender. The ending wrapped up too quickly & neatly (a bit unrealistic) BUT I really enjoyed this one. It‘s got nothing to do with Christmas, though, as the majority of the story occurs between August & November. I did not read the previous 3 novels, but now I want to.

Shadow of Night: A Novel | Deborah Harkness

🌙I‘m continuing our #AllSouls group read-along with Book 2: #ShadowofNight 🖤

The real-time read for this one has too many gaps, so I created a schedule that breaks down the book over the course of 8 weeks, at a leisurely pace (accounting for the upcoming holiday season). This is a no-pressure group reading. Tagging the folks who participated in the #DOWRTR in case you‘d like to join!

#Chapter43 #November1st #DOWRTR

This chapter is bittersweet & the first time I read it, I was teary-eyed when I saw the note Matthew leaves for Sarah & Em. Such a sweet gesture.

📜What did you think of the novel? Did you enjoy it? Did it meet or exceed your expectations?

📖Would you like to move on to Shadow of Night as a group? The real-time read is more chaotic, but we could go at a simpler pace? Let me know below!

Librarybelle It was a bittersweet end! But, I‘m so glad I read this book, so thank you for leading the real time reading on Litsy! I did start Shadow of Night and had planned to do the chaotic real time read but would be interested in reading as a group in a not so very chaotic group read. 1mo
katy4peas I would read another one with the group. I have about 5% of the book left, but I know I will want to jump into the next book! I hope the rest of the series is as good as this first one! 1mo
BookNAround I went out and bought 2 and 3 immediately. I didn‘t expect to enjoy it nearly as much as I did so I‘m so glad for the push to read it. And yes, I‘d read along again. 1mo

Lynnsoprano Thanks for putting this together! It‘s the slowest read of this book I‘ve done, and I admit to finishing early anyway ☺️ Since Shadow of Night is my favorite of the trilogy (I know, I‘m weird, but part is set in my beloved Prague) I‘m definitely in on a read together, real time or otherwise. 1mo
Catsandbooks Yes definitely will be reading the rest of the series! And would love to have a group to discuss with! 1mo
peanutnine I enjoyed this readalong immensely! I am planning on reading the next book and would love to read with the group for discussion ☺️ 1mo
AFrostCauseReads I enjoyed this book so much more than I was expecting to! I was about to read the next one too, might as well do it as a group! 1mo
Laughterhp Yes! I already have the second book ready to go! 1mo
catebutler This has been one of my favourite read-alongs, so thank you so much for hosting this!! I would love to continue with the series, so just let us know when you want to start. 1mo

Ch. 42: October 31st 🎃Halloween🖤

I found this chapter so beautiful & emotional. Matthew‘s gentle side shines in his interaction with kids trick or treating. I tear up reading this chapter when they prepare to leave the house.

📖What do you think of this chapter? How have you enjoyed the chapters we haven‘t discussed? Let‘s chat! #DOWRTR #AllSouls #SeasonoftheWitch

Librarybelle This was a sweet chapter, with lots of love but yet you could feel the sorrow and the uncertainty. 1mo
MoonWitch94 @Librarybelle I think that‘s why it makes me tear up. It‘s bittersweet & you can really feel the sorrow. Especially when Matthew is interacting with the kids; it made me think of how he must‘ve been a good Dad to his son who died. 1mo
Librarybelle Yes!! 1mo
katy4peas A few chapters behind, but I‘ve been reading a chapter a day and really enjoying it!! 1mo
Lynnsoprano That fairy princess‘s cousin visited our house last night! She was this beautiful little girl with a group who were all a bit older, who all pushed ahead of her to get candy. Like Matthew, I can‘t give kids just one piece, and we had far fewer kids than previous years-even last year, amazingly. So little princess got 4 pieces of candy, and I‘m getting choked up just thinking about the expression on her face. 1mo

MoonWitch94 behaving & self-sufficient. But now, they‘re all going downhill together (ages 89, 91 & 95). It‘s part of life, they‘ve lived long, good journeys. But it‘s hard to watch the suffering. And my immediate family member‘s mental health issues are stable, but who knows what the coming holidays will bring. I can‘t do anything but support & love, but the unnecessary suffering is infuriating. But, things are better today than in recent days. So I‘m glad. 1mo

✨10/2: Ch. 13✨ #DOWRTR #AllSouls #SeasonoftheWitch

Diana visits Matthew‘s lab, meets Marcus, & volunteers her blood 🩸 to be analyzed for the DNA sequencing project.

🧬The science is so over my head that it‘s nice to have Diana interpret for the reader in layman‘s terms. Researching the science must‘ve taken a long while by the author.
🧬This quote is pretty epic. If the research is right, all creatures will be “equal”. What do you think? 🧐

Laughterhp I Love when authors do that. Have someone explain all the science to you so you don‘t feel dumb. 2mo
ElizaMarie I love all this sciencey aspect of this book! 2mo
peanutnine I definitely appreciated Diana's explanations, biology was never my subject 😅 Matthew's research is very interesting though. If he has such a breakthrough, it could change how all the creatures perceive each other and maybe end some prejudices. 2mo

audreydmcgee I loved that they talked about mitochondrial DNA. Made my biologist heart happy! 🧬 2mo
4thhouseontheleft I was a dual anthro/psych major, and studied evolution, so I love all the evolutionary biology in this chapter! But also looking forward to more mouth-watering food writing when Diana goes to Matthew's for dinner. 2mo
katy4peas I find the science fascinating although I don‘t understand that much! This quote was certainly powerful though! And yes, Harkness had to research a lot of science and vampire/witch lore to be able to pull off a well written book. I‘m really enjoying it! I do wish Diana would tel Matthew about Gillian‘s threat though. 2mo

✨10/1: Ch. 12✨ Dinner at Diana‘s Place
📷 From DOW TV Show
Dinner ends in a smooch (or 3!)! Secrets are revealed. And we find out that Matthew is 1,500 years old! What are your thoughts!?!?! So exciting! I love this chapter so much.

Librarybelle It was a good chapter! 2mo
Laughterhp I‘m loving this book! This chapter was great! 2mo
peanutnine I enjoyed this chapter. I loved how hard Diana worked to make food that Matthew might enjoy. And I can't believe just how old he is! 😳 2mo
See All 12 Comments
Andrew65 That‘s an awful lot older than we all thought! An interesting chapter where we found out a lot more about Matthew and Diana‘s feelings for him. Really enjoying the book so far. 2mo
ElizaMarie I really found it so sweet that she tried to create such a nice dinner for him. It was just a sweet moment they shared! 2mo
catebutler Like everyone else mentioned, this was a really great chapter! I loved all the descriptions of food and scent, especially what Diana and Matthew smelled like to each other. The scent imagery was superb! And I also really enjoyed all the talk and discussion over alchemy and evolution. Love to attend a lecture on the topic! 2mo
Lynnsoprano I love how the author takes the common vampire tropes and manipulates them to fit her interpretation of the different creatures. We learn a lot more about vampires, along with Diana. This is my umpteenth reread, and I still find myself drawn in. (edited) 2mo
Vansa Loving this read along!Their conversations are so interesting- I love how Harkness has used to tropes of a vampire romance to explore history, genetics, evolution, and how folklore evolved.I love the explanation they discuss for the sunlight myth and the invitation myths.Also manages to be quite romantic!I felt Harkness wanted to stick with the tropes of Twilight but use them intelligently,this is one of the chapters where she starts to succeed. 2mo
4thhouseontheleft This is a great chapter! I love that this chapter starts to chip away at Matthew‘s back story. And the dinner is such a sweet scene, although I wouldn‘t be eating raw venison either, no matter how thinly it is sliced! I was imagining something like beef tartare, but with venison. I have lots of thoughts on how she incorporates ideas of evolution and genetic mutation, but I‘ll save those for later in the book! 2mo
MoonWitch94 @4thhouseontheleft @Vansa @Lynnsoprano @catebutler @ElizaMarie @Andrew65 @peanutnine @Laughterhp @Librarybelle I agree with all the things you mentioned. I feel like the author collected all kinds of vampire folklore & elevated them in a believable, educational way. It‘s fun & refreshing. Vampire lore can be repetitive so this is a nice change. 2mo
Andrew65 @MoonWitch94 Yes quite a refreshing outlook. 2mo
katy4peas I like both of the characters and really enjoyed that they are starting to trust each other. 2mo

✨9/30: Ch. 11✨ #DOWRTR #AllSouls #SeasonoftheWitch

🦉Matthew makes an admission before Yoga; Diana‘s adrenaline gets triggered by an owl; Diana asks Matthew to dinner. Things are heating up.
🕸We officially met Peter Knox last chapter. What are your thoughts on this pompous, rude, nasty, self-serving Witch? 🤣 (My feelings are pretty clear lol).

Lynnsoprano I‘m right there with you. In fact, you‘re a lot more polite than my comments would be 😄 2mo
peanutnine I love how Diana and Matthew are opening up more to each other! I agree about Knox 😡 I liked the little ways that Diana caught him off guard though 2mo
Librarybelle Things are heating up indeed! 😂 And yes, Knox is not a nice guy! 2mo
See All 15 Comments
4thhouseontheleft Peter Knox strikes me as one of those Wiccan priest/witches that is a misogynistic asshole. Kind of like the impression I have of Wiccan author Raymond Buckland. 2mo
ElizaMarie Was the Owl like a familiar? Could It be linked to Knox? I haven't read this before but it screamed a nefarious owl. 2mo
Andrew65 Think you summed Knox up well, if it was a pantomime they‘d be booing as he came onto the stage! 2mo
Andrew65 @ElizaMarie Now that‘s a good thought! 2mo
MoonWitch94 @Lynnsoprano Ohhhh I have a colorful array of descriptions for him…I‘m saving them for later down the line 😂🤣😂🤣😂 2mo
Andrew65 They are certainly opening up to each other and things are hotting up! We can all see where this is heading, what a strange relationship. 2mo
MoonWitch94 @peanutnine @Librarybelle Yes! They are slowly opening up to one another but also being respectful of one another‘s boundaries. So rare to find in stories where romantic relationships are involved & develop rapidly. 2mo
MoonWitch94 @4thhouseontheleft That is an excellent comparison! Yes, I get that vibe from Buckland as well. @ElizaMarie @Andrew65 TBH I do not remember bc it‘s been years since I read this one; but it‘s totally possible! 2mo
Andrew65 A first time for me. 2mo
catebutler I‘m enjoying the development of the characters in this chapter. I honestly forgot some of the details, before this re-read (like the owl) 🦉 And I was thinking the same thing about it being a familiar of a witch, spying on them. But, at the same time, even if it was just an owl, I like how it shows how tightly wound both characters are right now. Knox is a twat. 2mo
MoonWitch94 @catebutler Agreed! This pacing is allowing me to pick up details that I missed before. Its making this reading so much more rich & colorful. Ugh, he is a twat! 2mo
Catsandbooks I'm behind on my reading but I already love Matthew and Diana's relationship! I like that they're being honest with each other and showing that they truly care for one another. Knox is an ass 🤬 2mo

✨Ch. 8 & 9 are very important movements in our story! TBH these are two of my favorite moments from this book. I have loved reading your posts & conversations. I missed chatting with you. So here‘s my two questions for this section:
📖What did you make of Amira & the creature Yoga class? We‘re you surprised that Matthew admitted he built The Old Lodge?
📖 How did you react to Hamish & the info we received about Matthew‘s past? The chess game? ⬇️

MoonWitch94 📖I loved the creature yoga! It was such a great scene & I loved that Amira could tap into whatever each practitioner needs. Diana‘s convo over tea with Matthew was very irritating. She made me very irritated during this exchange. 2mo
MoonWitch94 📖 I love Hamish. He‘s one of my favorite characters & I love how he just accepts Matthew, yet always reads him with an honest heart while respectfully pushing him towards honesty. The best kind of friend. 2mo
MoonWitch94 📖ALSO! I love the quote Diana says about human fear—-it‘s so spot on! Fear is powerful & shaped our world in the worst ways. 2mo
See All 18 Comments
4thhouseontheleft The yoga chapter is one of my favorite moments in the book! 2mo
Librarybelle The yoga chapter was very good! And Hamish seems like the perfect foil for Matthew, showing some new layers to Matthew. 2mo
peanutnine I loved the yoga chapter! It was cool to see the different creatures reacting to the practice in each of their ways. And interesting to reveal how Matthew is comfortable spending time with other creatures. And the hunting chapter was even better, imo. I loved Hamish immediately and his relationship with Matthew. He calls him out on his shit like a true friend lol. I like that the book switches between Matthew's and Diana's perspectives sometimes 2mo
Vansa The yoga chapter was excellent. Really fleshes out the world so much better. 2mo
Zuhkeeyah I love Amira. Her magic is a gentle but powerful one since she is able to draw all creatures to her. Both of these chapters offer insight on how Matthew is more focused on a creatures character than what they are. 2mo
ElizaMarie I have been dabbling in the practice of yoga so I had found that yoga scene to be a favorite! (So far!) It was great that there were so many different types of creatures in one space in a group to engage in self-care. It just warms my heart. Also, everyone needs a friend like Hamish! 2mo
MoonWitch94 @4thhouseontheleft @Librarybelle @peanutnine @Vansa @Zuhkeeyah @ElizaMarie I agree with you all. Did any of you find it interesting that Matthew likes Amira‘s way of teaching bc it reminds him of more traditional yoga practice? It‘s such a good point bc many yoga classes today are so focused on our western view of yoga, not the actual way it should be practiced. 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @MoonWitch94 yes! And I got really frustrated recently that an Indian yoga practitioner pretty much got shut out of teaching at a local popular studio (she had been there since they opened 5 hrs ago), because she never did power yoga and members felt her classes were too “slow”. 🙄 I loved her classes exactly because they were about the practice and not just fitness, but people just want power yoga 2mo
katy4peas I love that Hamish and Matt can come together and then Matt was the one to bring Amira over and help her start the class and bring the creatures together. I can‘t believe Diana stayed for the class without getting super angry about it. And I adore Hamish‘s remarks about how vampires are easier to deal with when they can concentrate on something else.. like food or stalking.. while they are talking. I loved the chess scene. 😢 2mo
ElizaMarie @MoonWitch94 I feel like he liked her way because it was a nostalgic thing for him. Like how we enjoy reminders of our childhood. I am new to yoga. Not great at it but I have been trying to engage more in yoga. 2mo
Andrew65 I liked both these chapters, and saw different sides to things with all the groups present at the yoga and getting on with each other (sort of) and then to see Matthew‘s best friend was a daemon! Great writing and Mathew certainly revealed his true feelings. 2mo
MoonWitch94 @4thhouseontheleft that‘s so ridiculous & insulting! I‘d be frustrated, too! Maybe you can find out where she went & follow her to her new studio. 2mo
MoonWitch94 @ElizaMarie Definitely! Can you imagine how often vampires must feel nostalgic? It must be overwhelming. I‘m not great at it either, but I have been trying to focus more on the practice, not the movements. 2mo
MoonWitch94 @Andrew65 The author has such a way with words. She has a great ability to make you work as a reader, while making it feel effortless. She really evokes the mystery & majesty of creatures. 2mo
MoonWitch94 @katy4peas I just adore Hamish so much! 2mo

✨We meet Miriam & Agatha; two more creatures. ✨

🧛‍♂️What do you make of the author‘s description of creatures & their dispositions? Do you find it interesting that they don‘t interact & are so negative towards the other?
🧛‍♂️Diana & Matthew end the chapter by agreeing to call one another by their first names: a shift in their relationship?

🌙Interested in joining us? Comment below!🌙
#DOWRTR #AllSouls #SeasonoftheWitch

annahenke We also begin to learn more about one of the book‘s defining questions in this chapter: where does your power come from?? 🤔🤔🤔 2mo
Librarybelle I‘d love to learn more about the distinctions between the groups! And yes, the whole power and its origins question! 2mo
Sresendez12 I find it fascinating how different books can be so different on how supernatural creatures are and interact with one another. I do love her version of these supernatural creatures. And it‘s definitely a turning point in their relationship! 2mo
See All 8 Comments
Catsandbooks It seems like the author is nodding at racism and prejudice by way of the attitudes of the creatures to each other. There's clearly a hierarchy with witches and vampires at the top and daemons and humans at the bottom. I like that Diana is not sticking to previous generations stereotypes, but instead forming her own opinions. I think we'll see a change in creatures attitudes towards each other, in this book or the wider series. 2mo
vonnie862 I am not surprised that the creatures don't interact with one another. It's usually depicted in literature that mythical creatures tend to stick with their kind. However, I am really interested to find out more about the manuscript and all the secrets it holds. 2mo
ElizaMarie I love hearing about the different groups of supernatural. I totally feel for the demons the most. I get how witches have a whole coven of support and then demons, just born, families casting them out. Breaks my heart. Also, it makes sense why they want the books so bad. 2mo
Andrew65 @Catsandbooks Definitely agree, with the prejudices all these groups are showing to each other. Great rivalries in there. 2mo
Andrew65 I think she‘s done a great job of slowly introducing each of the main groups. First witches, then vampires and lastly Daemons. Can‘t help thinking of Pullman‘s Dark Materials here! A very interesting change in the relationship by resorting to first name terms. 2mo

✨Things are heating up in the Bodleian Library 📚! What do you make of Diana & Matthew‘s interactions thus far? What do you make if his protective stance in the library when he tried to shield Diana from the mind-reading witch?
✨Rowing & exercise are ritualistic for Diana & her mental health. Do you have any activities in your own life that bring you the same peace? (For me it‘s cooking & crafting).

#DOWRTR #AllSouls #SeasonoftheWitch

annahenke My ritual is cleaning. I always remember that Gretchen Rubin quote “outer order leads to inner calm” - it‘s so true for me! 2mo
Catsandbooks I like Matthew! I think he's not gonna match the stereotypical idea of vampires she's been raised on. Definitely excited to see where the relationship goes! And for me my ritual is my art. I can just get lost in it. 🎨 2mo
Librarybelle We‘re continuing to see the mystery unfold - Diana is finally realizing some things, but you just know this is only the beginning. And, of course, Matthew is going to play a key role. For rituals, I light scented candles and just relax, which lately means I‘m taking long naps! 😂 But, when not taking naps, I‘m reading or am just sitting, being present. 2mo
See All 15 Comments
MoonWitch94 @annahenke I hate cleaning, tbh. But I always feel so calm & peaceful when it‘s done. It‘s true. 2mo
MoonWitch94 @Catsandbooks Matthew is my all-time favorite vampire 🧛‍♂️ Art is so peaceful for me, too. 2mo
MoonWitch94 @Librarybelle Diana is slow on the uptake here 🤣 Lighting candles 🕯 is a must for me, too! Naps are necessary!! 2mo
Lizpixie Knitting brings me some peace. At least, my mind stops spinning as hard as it normally does! I love Mathew but I‘m not sure I‘d be able to deal with the whole protective/hierarchy that comes with a vampire 🧛‍♀️ 2mo
MoonWitch94 @Lizpixie A lot of people feel that way about knitting 🧶 I can see how it can become methodical. At least Diana is strong enough to handle him; many heroines are not written with the strength of our Diana. 2mo
Enchanted_Bibliophile Matthew come across as the typical bad-boy in looks and reputation. But I get the feeling from his protective stance that he is a good guy/vampire at heart. If that make sense for a vampire. As for me I'm also a bit of an adrenaline junky like Diana. Nothing calms me and makes me feel better than a good push in the gym. 2mo
Zuhkeeyah I‘m with Diana. I need physical exercise to find my zen place. The closest I can relate to this scene is the satisfaction after kayaking on the lake. Love how we‘re slowly figuring Matthew out with Diana. 2mo
MoonWitch94 @Enchanted_Bibliophile @Zuhkeeyah I tend to be the same when I‘m highly stressed (so, like most of the world the last 18 months, lol). I also appreciate that she‘s unwilling to let what her Aunt told her about Vampires to stop her from finding out for herself. 2mo
Sresendez12 I think his protective stance is very indicative of how their relationship will be. I‘ve also become an exercise junkie this year. It has brought my stress down to a manageable level. 2mo
ElizaMarie I really like how Matthew has taken this protective stance towards her. I like them. I just feel like there is more to the story rather than mere attraction.
✨I don't have a ritualistic activity yet. But I have been practicing my yoga so that's getting there.
2mo
slategreyskies Just finished chapters four & five. I‘m a little bit behind, but I‘m still pushing on. For me, I‘m not sure what brings me peace. Sometimes reading helps with that, and I also like to go for drives in the country. But I struggle with finding peace and wish it was easier for me. 2mo
Andrew65 It was interesting how Matthew went to her defence so quickly. What was his motive? Defending her because of some connection, or defending her because he wants that book and doesn‘t want others to have it. Time will tell. For me walking can sometimes help to ground me, but so to often does reading or watching cricket. (edited) 2mo

#DOWRTR

MoonWitch94 🌙In this section, we find out a bit more about creatures (Witches, Daemons, Vampires), and meet Matthew Clairmont 🧛! What are your first impressions of Matthew? 🌙Do you do anything special to celebrate the arrival of Autumn? 2mo
Librarybelle I like the sense of mystery, both in the character of Matthew and the book overall. It‘s entertaining to read the designated chapters on the days presented in the book, and the reading companion has been a boon with additional information. As for the arrival of Autumn, I‘ve slowly started to put out autumn-scented candles and hand soaps, and I‘m pulling out more sweaters to wear! 2mo
MoonWitch94 @Librarybelle This is the first time I‘ve read it in real time & I do like it! I agree, it‘s a good mix of mystery & information; enough to make you feel “in the loop” & captures you to read further. It‘s still in the upper 70s here, so no sweaters yet for me 😢 But my house has been decorated for a bit, and I made fresh bread 🍞 & planted some mums. (edited) 2mo
See All 34 Comments
Librarybelle Yeah, it‘s not quite sweater weather here either, but I do have to layer a bit more in a/c buildings. I‘m anxiously awaiting the true sweater weather! Sounds like you‘re in the spirit! 2mo
MoonWitch94 @Librarybelle It‘s Fall INSIDE my house. I just need outside to catch up 🤣🍂🍁 2mo
Librarybelle Yes!! 😂 2mo
catebutler I really like how quickly Harkness establishes the atmosphere in the first couple of chapters and during this re-read, I see why Matthew has always intrigued me! I loved reading the article about Mabon, and think I‘ll do a little festive decorating and baking tomorrow to celebrate the equinox. 🍎🕯💫 2mo
Laughterhp I may have read like 7 chapters ahead 😬😬. My house is already decorated for fall. It‘s definitely cool in the morning and night here but still lower 70s during the day. 2mo
Catsandbooks My house has also been decorated for fall for awhile! I've already made apple bars and had caramel apple cider. However in MS we don't we get great fall weather, which is something I miss about northern MI. As for Matthew, I think he's already an interesting character. I'm excited to see how things develop with him and Diana. 2mo
Enchanted_Bibliophile As a first time reader I have many questions, and I'm very tempted to read more. Harkness sure have a talent for given just enough info to make you want more but not giving away too much. 2mo
Enchanted_Bibliophile In the Southern hemisphere Spring is supposed to be on the way, but just as you guys are still experiencing hot weather we are still freezing most days. And I'm more than ready for it to get warmer. 2mo
ElizaMarie @Enchanted_Bibliophile This is the first time reading for me. I am also enjoying the mystery and intrigue of what's going on. Matthew interests me. I can't want to find out more! 2mo
ElizaMarie Thank you for posting more about Mabon. I have been planning on getting more in tune with nature and the changing of the seasons and all that great stuff! I love fall and I am so excited when I will be able to start being more cozy! 2mo
4thhouseontheleft We celebrate Mabon in our house along with Sukkot, a Jewish harvest holiday. I have a small altar that I switch things out seasonally. This is the time of year when I really try to do a lot of hiking and spending time in nature too, once the weather finally becomes a bit cooler here in the Southeast. I am loving reading DOW in real time! 2mo
annahenke I love DOW and it‘s so fun rereading in a group! My favorite part of the first few chapters is how Diana shares that she fell in love with Oxford during a summer study program- so did I!! These books evoke so many memories for me ❤️ 2mo
MoonWitch94 @catebutler I agree; she jumps us right into the action in a way that feels natural. Did you do your festive decorating & baking? @Laughterhp It is hard to stop when you just want to know all the answers to everything! It‘s still in the high 70s/low 80s here & I‘m not happy. Fall is so short as it is! 2mo
MoonWitch94 @Catsandbooks sounds like delicious choices! I love caramel apple cider! @Enchanted_Bibliophile I get antsy for the crisp & cool weather right now, but in Spring I feel the same way for warmer days. The first time I read this, I was so eager I read it in 3 days, then realized I had to wait 2 years for the 2nd book 🤣 2mo
MoonWitch94 @ElizaMarie You‘re welcome! 🍎🍁I always feel more alive in the Fall, especially when I‘m in nature. @4thhouseontheleft I forgot about Sukkot! Double the celebration! I love being outside this time of year as well. I‘m enjoying it, too. It‘s an extra layer of depth to the story. 2mo
MoonWitch94 @annahenke I think so, too! The first few chapters makes me WISH I had done a summer study at Oxford. That‘s awesome you had the same experience as Diana. What did you study? 2mo
Enchanted_Bibliophile @MoonWitch94 I just hate when that happens. Especially if it ends on a cliffhanger of sorts. Now I'm hoping this one doesn't end on a cliffhanger... Prepare me now if it does so that I can go buy the next book. 2mo
Enchanted_Bibliophile @ElizaMarie So glad to find I'm not the only one who's not been on this bandwagon forever. And I must say that Matthew sparks an interest in me as well... Is a the bad-boy Vampire or os there something more there. 2mo
MoonWitch94 @Enchanted_Bibliophile BUY THE NEXT BOOK! 2mo
MoonWitch94 @Enchanted_Bibliophile @ElizaMarie I consider Matthew to be a rebel with a cause. 2mo
Enchanted_Bibliophile @MoonWitch94 I'm buying it ASAP! 2mo
annahenke @MoonWitch94 literature and history ❤️ 2mo
MoonWitch94 @annahenke I have a BA in English Lit & minor in History 🤩 (plus BA in theatre) 2mo
annahenke @MoonWitch94 me too! Minus the theater! 2mo
catebutler @MoonWitch94 I did! It was such a fun way to celebrate the equinox. 2mo
Catsandbooks @Enchanted_Bibliophile @ElizaMarie I'm also a first time reader, glad there's a little group of us! 2mo
Andrew65 First time reader, found Matthew interesting and almost felt like we saw two different sides to Mathew in Chapters 2 & 3. Deeper side to him and what he was after than I initially thought. 2mo
Andrew65 Not a great fan of Autumn, prefer Spring with the promise of sun and summer. Autumn it just gets darker and colder. 2mo
MoonWitch94 @Andrew65 Yes! I have thought that about Matthew as well. If I lived somewhere that had Autumn bring winter weather in Oct or November, I‘d feel similar. But where I am on the East Coast of the US it doesn‘t get cold till December. 2mo
Andrew65 Sitting in the front room with the fire on here, poured with rain virtually all day and very cool. 12 degrees Centigrade, 53 degrees Fahrenheit. 2mo
MoonWitch94 @Andrew65 Ugh. I understand. 2mo

✨September 18th: Chapter 1️⃣✨
“It‘s nothing,” I thought.
“Are you sure?” whispered a long-ignored voice.

We meet Dr. Diana Bishop (last of the Bishop Witches) who is researching 17th Century Science at Oxford University. Her research calls a mysterious manuscript (Ashmole 782) from the depth of the library, and suddenly everything feels different.

Curious about Duke Humphries? Check out the link below! ⬇️ #DOWRTR #SeasonoftheWitch
