June 12, 2019

Review: Children of Blood and Bone

April 2, 2019

I have been hearing rave reviews about Children of Blood and Bone for months — including one person telling me that it was like Harry Potter, but with West African magic. So, I plucked it out of by pile of unread books, and got to it. And, y’all. I finally finished it. It took me […]
