Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orïsha #1) Reviews
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 I don't know what to do without it D:

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 was a terrible book. I don't think I've been this disappointed since picking up FLAME IN THE MIST or THRONE OF GLASS. What the hell were you guys reading? Is there a "good" version and a "shitty" version? What happened?

They killed my mother
They took our magic
They tried to bury us
Now we rise.
Where do I even begin? This book was so much more than I expected and I expected a lot . I’m usually wary of hyped books because you guys know how the hype can be a freaking liar. However, a YA fantasy featuring an all black character cast and written by a Nigerian-American writer. I am so here for it.
Zélie ticks all the boxes of a great main character. Strong female character? Tick. Tragic backstory? Tick. Loyal to ...more
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

Children of Blood and Bone has been on my book radar for MONTHS. Every corner of the bookish internet was praising it and shouting about how great it is. And you know what? It's worth every ounce of hype it's received. It's one of those wonderful cases where the inside of the book is just as gorgeous as the outside!
Seriously. I w ...more

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’t keeping us alive. It was thinking we’d never fight back!”
Children of Blood and Bone is worth every ounce of hype and praise it has received thus far, and I only anticipate it to receive more and more, especially since you’re all ab ...more
I am dead
Whaaat, that ending confused me a little, so if anyone has read it, please come talk to me haha
This is by far the best book I've read so far this year, and it will be hard to beat!
I loved everything about this book! The characters, the world, the world building, the magic system, the plot!
I want the next one now pleaseeeeeee
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 romance. I hate romance. I hate how everyone needs to be paired up especially in YA and how cheesy it is. I kinda wish this series was adult instead but if you're looking for a book you'll fly through I totally recommend this o ...more
