Of Bees and Mist ~ By Erick Setiawan ~ Book ~ GIVEAWAY!!! ~ 3 Winners! ~ Ends 8/8


I am still in the process of reading this title, but I don't know what will be happening in life and I want to get it out there. So far it is a captivating, magical book that has been hard to put down. You know, one of those you can't wait to pick up. My normal reading time is in bed and lately I have been so tired, I go to bed and sleep.

I'm catching up on sleep now so maybe tonight I'll get some reading in. I am really enjoying this book. It could very well be among my favorites - it has that feel.


Of Bees and Mist is an engrossing fable that chronicles three generations of women under one family tree and places them in a mythical town where spirits and spells, witchcraft and demons, and prophets and clairvoyance are an everyday reality.

Meridia grows up in a lonely home until she falls in love with Daniel at age sixteen. Soon, they marry, and Meridia can finally escape to live with her charming husband’s family—unaware that they harbor dark mysteries of their own. As Meridia struggles to embrace her life as a young bride, she discovers long-kept secrets about her own past as well as shocking truths about her new family that push her love, courage, and sanity to the brink.

Erick Setiawan’s astonishing debut is a richly atmospheric and tumultuous ride of hope and heartbreak that is altogether touching, truthful, and memorable.

It's a light yet rich read that is as enjoyable for we adults to read as it was for us to read Snow White as a child.
