    This was a gripping read. The world building here is phenomenal. The main characters are richly drawn and I was invested in each of their struggles. This book is very action packed. So much is happening! The ending is such a cliffhanger and I want to know what?s next. This is well wo...

    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...

    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...

    This review has been in the works for a little too, but that?s because it?s a tough title for me to review. I originally received this as an eARC earlier in the year, and made it to about the 40% mark before DNFing it a few weeks before its release. I had already pre-ordered it and...

    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...

    This is a 500+ page book which I devoured in 2 days. I'm so surprised by how fast I finished this. This was such a good ASS book. I was 100% invested in it and found it impossible to put down whenever I was reading. This book is fucking amazing and deserves all the hype it's getting!! ...

    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...

    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. ...

    "We are all children of blood and bone. All instruments of vengeance and virtue." *Insert standing ovation here. Wow. This was incredible! I'm always cautious going into a hyped book because you never know what you're going to get. I've arrived at the point in my reading experie...

    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...

    Unpopular Opinion Alert. I think 99% of my friends loved this book, and trust me. I wanted to love it, too. The diverse cast of characters, a land of magic, themes of revenge, and fantasy all gripped me. I thought I was going to love Zlie and her badass nature, and that there was goi...

    I have very little to say about this debut so I?ll keep this short and concise. Sooo, does the book that made headlines well before it was even published live up to its hype? It truly saddens me to say this but unfortunately, no. It did not for me and I?m pretty certain I?m i...
