What to Read After Doing an English Lit MA?

You have to do a heck of a lot of reading for an English Literature MA. I've just finished the course I began a year ago, and for the first time since then I am at complete liberty to read things that aren't on some academic list. Lovely!

However, I also fancied taking a break from actual reading. So, an audiobook about fictional witches in London sounded just the thing to start on. I was recommended London Coven - a WitchLit urban fantasy trilogy by M.V. Stott and David Bussell. The audiobook is read by Heather Tracy.

I've downloaded the first book, Familiar Magic, onto my Kindle and it is perfect for post-dissertation unwinding. To quote the description:
A witch's familiar must protect London from the monsters that lurk in the shadows; the creatures that seek to unravel the fabric of things and send a city to hell. 
Stella Familiar was created by the London Coven out of spit and blood. She's a fighter, a blunt instrument, built to destroy the forces of evil and keep peace in the capital.

She's carried out her duty for decades, but when the witches who gave birth to her are butchered, it's up to her alone to save a city of nine million people.
You can view the London Coven audiobook on Amazon.
