Recently Added [16]

It is the plight of the voracious (or as voracious as life would allow) reader that their TBR list grows exponentially longer. But I haven’t been reading as many book blog posts lately, so I’ve only recently added one title to my TBR.

Here’s what I’ve recently added to my TBR

Today’s addition is the Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. It’s not out until March of 2018, but already I’m excited.

Here’s what it’s about (From Goodreads)

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.

Why I added it:

I was on Twitter and happened across this tweet.

Which I, naturally, had to send to one of my book buddies who responded like this

It was the cover that drew me in, and the storyline that’s making me stay. Fantasy + blackness? Absolutely yes.
