    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || Pinterest WELP. Looks like this book is joining THRONE OF GLASS on the books-that-made-me-lose-friends shelf. After reading some of the five-star reviews for this book, I'm reevaluating how much I trust some of my friends. This...

    ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Buddy read with Adri! ? (And my favorite BookTube reviews: Frankie's, Tati's, & Lauren's!) ?You crushed us to build your monarchy on the backs of our blood and bone. Your mistake wasn?...

    ?No matter how much I crave peace, the gods have other plans.? 4 1/2 stars. Wow, I have had quite a week. I started Children of Blood and Bone last Thursday as I was going into labour (because, why not?). Normally, I would devour a book like this in a day or two, but those of yo...

    Full review to come! In the meantime - THIS WAS AMAZING. Each of the characters goes on their own intriguing journeys throughout the story, and I enjoyed going along for the ride so much. The setting, magic, and characters were so vibrant and full of life. I need the sequel, and...

    THIS WAS AMAZING!! And it was a debut?? No way! Lots of elements that I think will appeal to many fantasy readers, but a world and characters that are totally their own. Action packed and great pacing. Audiobook review - I would definitely recommend the audio. The narrator gives a l...

    Children of Blood And Bone is such a rich and excellently built fantasy world my opinion is just: WOW. I also feel like this book is most definitely mega-hyped but worth it, ohhh so worth it. The writing is stunning, but we just need to all sit down in a bucket and admire the world bui...

    3.75 stars ? ?On Earth, Sky Mother creates humans, her children of blood and bone.? This had such a strong start! A world where magic no longer exists, and anyone with heritage relating to those who wielded magic (magi) were beaten, and treated awfully by the nobles. Usu...

    I want to join Zlie and Amari?s squad badly. When you?re a university student, it?s very hard to finish a 500-page book in less than two days and not be five assignments behind, especially this close to the end of the semester. But here we are, with me still alive and br...

    It doesn't happen too often that I actually, really dislike a book. And I still can't really express how sad I am about the fact that it had to happen with this one. Initially, I was wary about Children of Blood and Bone. Apart from the West-African mythology aspect, it didn't soun...

    If you want to see the most precious thing ever, here's a video of Tomi opening her first finished copy. <3 --- This book is SO GOOD but I'm fantasy slumping so bad right now, so I'm going to set this aside until I can enjoy it more (hopefully VERY soon!). ...

    Gah! I was just talking about how I hoped I get my poster for the book and it came and it's freaking awesome! ? I loved this book so much! ? This book is everything and I have a new favorite author =) I try not to think of her. But when I do, I think of ric...

    Mixed feelings, this one. While it's a good book (for most YA fans), I found it far too typical, too clichd, too predictable. The book has spawned a lot of awesome reviews. For a debut novel, Tomi Adeyemi has actually done quite well. The writing style is especially good. But...

    5 STARS! This is genuinely the greatest debut fantasy novel, greatest fantasy novel in general that I have read in a very long time. Initially, I was TERRIFIED to read Children of Blood and Bone. The combination of it?s size and an epic high fantasy novel was very daunting to me, but...

    It took me awhile to get through this book (due to the fact that it?s quite long, and is a very detailed and involved fantasy world), but I highly enjoyed it. I absolutely adored the magic system in this story, and loved the visuals I imagined while reading. I really do hope this bec...

    This is Overhyped DNF AT 50% What a gigantic disappointment. I bought this thinking the hype might be true. It has diversity and everyone on Goodreads made this out to be the best debut fantasy book in the history of all books. I?ll admit, I bought into it. Never again. ...

    I didn't really like this book but no matter, it has served its purpose which was introducing me to Amari so thanks for that I guess it wasn't a bad book, I am just a horrible hollow kind of indifferent towards it. my heart was itching for an experience that I just didn't get. any...

    THE HYPE IS REAL! I always prefer to decide for myself if the new overhyped YA book is worth it... and I'm happy to say that this new Fantasy book totally was! I loved the magic system, the world, the characters and cannot wait for the next book! My only complain is with the r...
