    The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

    great historical fiction

    A lovely history book (even for people who don't usually read history books) about a number of famous historic women, and how traditional history has misrepresented their lives.

    A Discovery of Witches. Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.
