Episode 84 – Book Review: Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

Dear Tomi, this is the most biased book review I’ve ever given.

But I absolutely loved reading Children of Blood and Bone! In this episode I share why I’m excited by the magical words woven into this African-inspired fantasy novel. I also share a snippet from Tomi’s Good Morning America interview with Robin Roberts which you can watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-r2g_UQ1Ak.

Follow Tomi’s words and fun writing advice at http://www.tomiadeyemi.com or follow @tadeyemibooks on Instagram. And please vote for her book to be picked by Jimmy Fallon for his Summer Book Club! Vote at https://www.nbc.com/the-tonight-show/exclusives/summer-reads/video/3750197.

Brother and sister dynamics are a key part of the book, so there’s a shout out to her brother tobi lou whose illustrations and videos are pretty fab too. Watch the full TROOP video at https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ckAgAc8paKo.
