I Want to Read It, a hybrid between WLW (or WOW) and what's on my to-be-read pile. Well, instead of focusing just on books I would like to acquire, I will be using it to feature books that I just want to read. From the ones, I want to buy to the one's sitting on my TBR at home.
Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orïsha, 1) by Tomi Adeyemi, March 6, 2018. Published by Henry Holt Books for Young Readers.
Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zelie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.
But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were targeted and killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.
Now, Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.
Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers—and her growing feelings for the enemy.
I have had my eye on Tomi Adeyemi's Children of Blood and Bone since her book was first announced. While I'm excited at the prospect of one day reading it, I am also rather nervous because so many people seem to love it and, well, I have not been having the greatest luck with super popular books lately. I'm definitely going to give it a chance though as it sounds like a fantasy book that I would devour!!
What are your thoughts on this one? Should I read it?
