Well, this was enjoyable. Probably a good Halloween read, if you‘re into that sort of thing. A witch and a witch hunter, forced into marriage. Gorgeous compelling heroine and a fast paced plot. I finished it off in a day and would read the next book. I‘m not a huge witchy book fan but this was fun. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really enjoyed the atmosphere of this book. It's set in a different reality similar to 16th century France. A young witch ends up having to marry a witch hunter. The magic is interesting enough and different from what I have encountered before. The enemies to lovers and slow burn romance was done fairly well. I didn't love the main characters, though. The romance was at times a little graphic for YA. Read for the #BNYAbookclub

THIS IS HOW YOU WRITE A DEBUT NOVEL PEOPLE.

Everything about this was utter perfection. The plot, the pacing, the magic, the characters, the tension, the drama, the friendships, and the romance. There was seriously not one part of this book that I did not like.

Blood & Honey is now officially one of my most anticipated books for 2020!

This was better then I expect. I know it's considered YA but I felt like it dealt with heavier themes and dosen't have all the angsty teen drama that I've had enough of lately. I will definitely be continuing with this series.

This book was incredible! The characters were so real and nuanced, I loved that the lines between good and evil were so blurred it felt more grounded and natural.

I finished this last night and I absolutely loved it. I love the romance. The female lead a bit more than the male lead but he‘s not terrible. Can‘t wait for the sequel next year.

The upside to having no physical energy: I finished it! This book has been hyped the hell up to me everywhere. I don't necessarily think it is mind blowing, it's a very strong debut which I enjoyed the romance and magic of. Plus there was a lineage reveal which I'm always a sucker for.

5/5🌟
I absolutely love this book.
It's wicked, atmospheric, romantic, dramatic and addicting.
Reid is the perfect book boyfriend. 😍
I really like how the story evolved. I didn't expect it to go the way it did. Of course a few things were predictable but it was still unique in it's on way.
I like how the characters develop throughout the story. Reid and Lou kept teaching each other new things.

This book just broke an almost month long reading slump (though two weeks of that slump were due to travel). But still, it was THAT good of a book 😍 Such witchy goodness and a lot of amazing themes about how the world isn‘t just black & white. Also, LOVE the characters! So well-rounded & realistic. Also, Reid & Lou are my new OTP. Just love them!

This book has brighten my weekend 😂. It's true that at first it's a bit slow, but then things begin to happen and WOW. The witches, the chasseur, the war. I loved even the romance! And a good romance is a very good point for me because i usually hate this kind of couples.

The worldbuilding was very good too but i'm still curious and i want to know more about the witches, specially after that final chapter! I need to read the next book ASAP!

This was fantastic!! It‘s starts right in the middle of the action, so it takes a moment to take off, but once it did I couldn‘t put it down! Witchery, romance, action, intrigue, twists, turns and all ready for a sequel! I‘m ready, baby!

It took about hundred pages for me to be hooked but when I was hooked I didn't want to put it down! This book is about Lou and Reid. One a witch, the other a witch hunter. Then when an event happens and they are basically forced to get married. Reid doesn't know that Lou is a witch. As they start to get to know each other they start to fall in love. What will Reid do when he finds out the truth? I need the sequel to this book ASAP!!!

This book was amazing! An age old tale of Christian religion vs. witchcraft. Filled with witches, witch-hunters and an unlikely love! I just fell in love with this book and sadly it ended on a cliffhanger. I can‘t wait for the sequel!!!

This wasn‘t one I picked out on my own. This was one of the three picks for my irl bookclub. I enjoyed it fine. It‘s about a witch and a witch hunter who have to get married and obviously end up haters to lovers. It‘s predictable but that‘s okay, I didn‘t mind and it was a fast read. I gave it 4 stars just based on enjoying the experience and I did really like the main character Lou.

Mehso-so

I had a love/hate relationship with this book. I was utterly confused until about page 86. I was so ready to quit because everything was happening and nothing made sense. However, if you trust the process your questions will get answered. I found the magic system a little strange. It was entertaining and perfect for this time of year. For a debut, it was really well crafted. The world was fully put together. I just didn‘t love the world. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

megzlynn @Mishu94 Here are my final thoughts! Hope it helps! (edited) 2mo
Mishu94 @megzlynn thank you so much for remembering me! And so far I have realised I have the same taste as you when it comes to this genre so I don‘t think I‘ll read it, if you didn‘t find it all that! 😔 (edited) 2mo

Well that was a fantastic surprise; a five star, favorite book of the year! For those that liked Ace of Shades, Serpent & Dove feels like a similar world with hidden magic, secrets, cunning thieves and heists. Also, for those of us that miss the ardent loyalty of Matthias and sassy impropriety of Nina with their swoon filled love, this is yet another reason this book is right for you. This book has it all.

I love this idea @Book_Fairy_Mary

What a great way to learn more about the people in our community! I am under the weather today, so I hope a puppy picture will suffice since I look like death. 😂 Here are some facts about me:
1. I am a history buff. I love old houses/things/places.
2. Cooking and baking are passions of mine.
3. While I‘m trying to drink more water, I am pretty sure my blood is mostly Coca-cola.

Brandon_Lee_Hayes I stopped drinking soda awhile ago and can't stand the taste of it any more. I've moved on to tea which I think is a bit better. I hope you feel better soon! 2mo
