Suffice to say, I enjoyed this book immensely. I think it combines a lot of interesting things together and it breathes a new, different, take into Arthurian Myth from a Black perspective.

I’d been seeing this book around, and WITCHES so of course I had to request it on NetGalley, because, why not? I think that this book was good, and I am struggling to put my thoughts into words in regards to how I felt about the book.
This was witches done right. This was demons done right. This was the whole package of evil goodness that I love and is my cup of tea. It was also…pretty much in my wheelhouse of everything I could ever want in a book? Like, this book was magnificent and I am obsessed with it now. I need ALL the merch and good stuff that comes along with it.
I will admit I did not read the summary before adding this book to my TBR or my hold list. Instead I was captivated by the title and cover and went WITCHES and thus ends the story of why I added this book.
When I saw the description of this book I was excited. It sounded like one that I would really enjoy. I have a BA in Classics, and so I was truly looking forward to a take on mythology. And this was definitely a take on it. At first I wasn’t sure how to feel about this book, because I felt that there was nothing about it that I really hated. But there was nothing about it that made me gasp or roll over in surprise. And so, this ended up being a middle book for me. One that I enjoyed, but not one that I am thinking about perpetually.
I read this book in one day. I have no regrets because it was absolutely fan-freaking-tastic.
Christina Lauren has been hit and miss for me quite a bit. There are some books of theirs I enjoy more than others, but this book really knocked it out of the park to me. This one was superbly well done and I am still thinking about it days later, so I know it’s a good book when that happens to me. What can I say about this book other than sing its praises? Not much because the experience of reading this book was lovely.
Let me preface this by saying I have never read Practical Magic or its sequel. In fact, I have heard of them, but never read them. I will be reading them at some point, as this book was amazing! I really liked it, and I think it was quite emotional at some points.
As you may or may not know I had (have) conflicted feelings over Serpent & Dove. The first time I read it, I wasn’t wild about it. The second I really liked it! This is my review for the book. Before I started Blood & Honey I did review S&D.
