Currently Reading [20/09]

I’m going to have so little time to read very soon, so of course I decided to start three awesome books in tandem.

I’m absolutely loving A Discovery of Witches. It follows a historian witch who discovers a magical book in Oxford and is suddenly a target for magical creatures. Matthew, the vampire she ends up dating, is fascinating. The backstories are really interesting and I’m excited to see where it goes. There’s a television show based on the trilogy, but I haven’t seen it yet and I kind of want to read all three books before I watch it.

Lie With Me is one that came to my notice because it’s a French book by Philippe Besson that Molly Ringwald translated into English. I really like Molly Ringwald and was interested to check it out. It’s a short novella set in France and tells the love story of Philippe and Thomas in the 1980s. I’m really liking it so far and the writing is absolutely lovely.

I also just got Wicked Fox, which is a Korean fantasy novel that I’ve been excited to read for months now. It’s about a gumiho, which is a nine-tailed fox in Korean mythology. I’m listening to this one on audible and the narrator’s really good!

Anyone read any of these? ♡

  1. Wicked Fox was GREAT, and YES !!! Emily Woo Zeller is one of my absolute favorites as well! She’s fantastic. Books based on any type of asian mythology are my favs, and there are so many that she narrates (if you would like any recs, on either the former or the latter/ BOTH totally let me know) ! I’m so happy you’re loving Wicked Fox so far!
    Oh! And for more to be excited about— the sequel is just FANTASTIC!😊
    I just finished Vicious Spirits last week… and I loved it even more than I did WF!

    Happy Reading,
    Ash 🤍
