Book Pairing: The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern (Reviewed Jan 2, 2020)

Why? In the world where the Starless Sea is located, are guardians of sorts represented by three symbols - a sword, a key & a bee. The bees are a main focus of the book - and - bees produce honey. What better than a Bee's Knees to sip on while delving into this novel?

* Spoilers Ahead*

The reader comes to find out the Starless Sea is actually honey - not salty water. Multiple main characters encounter a "sticky" meeting with this "sea".
