Review in a Nutshell: Serpent & Dove was one of my favorite releases of 2019, and while I really enjoyed Blood & Honey, it did get hit by the second-book-slump.

“The brotherhood had never been weaker. The crowd had never been larger. And the stakes– they’d never been higher.”

Premise:

Blood & Honey is the second book in the Serpent & Dove trilogy. This series was extended from a duology to a trilogy, and I kind of wish it stayed as a duology.

August TBR (Disneyathon and ARC August!)

August TBR

I may have bitten off more than I can chew.

This month, I want to participate in two challenges:

  1. ARC August, where you try and trim down your TBR and read as many ARCs as you can (more info here)
  2. The Disney-readathon, where you pick a team and try to complete challenges to earn points (more info here)

I know that I won’t be able to reach all my goals, but I’m going to spend the next month trying.

Read more to see my TBRs for the Disney-Readathon and ARC August!
