Review & Giveaway: Of Bees and Mist by Erick Setiawan


Merida's parents are void of emotion. She doesn't hear I love you's and she doesn't know what it's like to be loved unconditionally by a parent. She was was raised by her Nurse who unexpectedly is told to leave.

Falling in love with the man of her dreams she begins to feel truly alive. Marrying Daniel seems like a no-brainer. Thinking that her in-laws are the picture-perfect family she has always dreamed of, she is shocked when she finds out that this family is just as dysfunctional as her own. She had no idea she was leaving one hell for another.

I was a little iffy about this book. It was interested and well written but it lacked a certain oomph that I was hoping for.

You have so many fabulous giveaways going on right now! The books being offered are very good too. Pity they are not for overseas readers but understandable with the high cost of postage.

+1 To be honest, I know they say to never judge a book by it's cover, but honestly if I hadn't had your description I'd have no clue what the book would be about. lol. =] The beginning part actually sounds like my life and when I fell in love with my boyfriend and met his family. His family is pretty nice though, no problems or anything. =] Sounds interesting.
