Teaser Tuesday: A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

For the second week running I have a teaser from a book featuring vampires, but they are very different books! I am really enjoying A Discovery of Witches, but I really need to get through it a bit quicker. It is already overdue at the library and I still have quite a bit of it to read!

The teaser comes from page 135:

"Nobody can be what he's not, no matter how hard he tries. You mustn't romanticize vampires. Knox may not have your best interests at heart, but he was right about me."
Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in!

  1. Seems as though Knox is at the center of things. Enjoy your book!

  2. This looks like a great book. Hehe I chuckled because I have a very romanticized view of vampires :)

  4. The only vampire books I've read are the Twilight series. Perhaps I should add a few more to my list?!
    Here's my TT:

  5. Shouldn't romanticise vampires? Not only a good quote, but a sound piece of advice. That's if they existed... I'm curious about the book if it's got vampires and witches. I hope it's a good one!

  10. I agree with that teaser...you mustn't romanticize vampire! Vampire should be cruel not romantic ;)

  11. But what we've learned about vampires recently is that they're romantic ... LOL.

  12. I'm not really a vampire fan, but must admit vampires and witches in the same book sounds intriguing. Excellent teaser!

  23. I'm reading Discovery of Witches right now!! It took me a bit of time to actually get into the book as well but don't give up! It picks up and by half way through I found it impossible to put down!
