Giveaway: The Thinking Woman’s Guide to Real Magic

The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic by Emily Croy Barker

 

Remember a few months ago when I reviewed The Thinking Woman’s Guide to Real Magic? Go check out the review, I’ll wait! Don’t you just want to read it? Not yet, okay well here’s a summary that put’s mine to shame:

Nora Fischer is a bluestocking-ish grad student with a stalled thesis, unsure future, and a broken heart. At a boring wedding reception, she finds herself in a beautiful garden near a tiny cemetery—and suddenly in a different, bizarre sort of world. Here she takes up with a group of glamorous new friends who throw incredible parties with the likes of Oscar Wilde. If things sometimes seem a little off-kilter, Nora’s having too good a time to notice, especially since her romance with the gorgeous Raclin is heating up.

 

When her head finally clears, Nora is shocked to find herself in a magical world where men rule with swords or spells and most women are illiterate chattel. Surviving here will take skills Nora never learned in graduate school. Her only real ally—and a reluctant one at that—is the magician Aruendiel, a grim, reclusive figure with a biting tongue and a murderous past. And it will take Nora becoming Aruendiel’s student—and learning magic herself—to survive. While waiting for a passage to her own world to open, Nora must weigh the chance to resume what she still considers her “real life” against the dangerous power of love and magic.

 

See, I told you you’d want to read it! In honor of its paperback release, I have the opportunity to giveaway a copy.  I Leave a comment below letting me know what your favorite witch in literature is (and don’t forget to leave your email). This giveaway is open to US residents.
