By now I know you are aware that A Discovery of Witches is now a tv show. I watched it and it made me want to pick this book up again and re-read. I’m definitely going to do it this year because I loved this book so much. If you haven’t read or watched, consider checking it out. I thought Harkness did a fantastic job of combining the historical pieces with the paranormal and if you like those things, you will enjoy this book. If you’ve read this already, now might be a good time for a re-read for you too!
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

Book one of the New York Times–bestselling All Souls trilogy—"a wonderfully imaginative grown-up fantasy with all the magic of Harry Potter and Twilight” (People) Deborah Harkness’s sparkling debut, A Discovery of Witches, has brought her into the spotlight and galvanized fans around the world. In this tale of passion and obsession, Diana Bishop, a young scholar and a descendant of witches, discovers a long-lost and enchanted alchemical manuscript, Ashmole 782, deep in Oxford's Bodleian Library. Its reappearance summons a fantastical underworld, which she navigates with her leading man, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont. Harkness has created a universe to rival those of Anne Rice, Diana Gabaldon, and Elizabeth Kostova, and she adds a scholar's depth to this riveting tale of magic and suspense. The story continues in book two, Shadow of Night, and concludes with The Book of Life.
