    It took me awhile to get through this book (due to the fact that it’s quite long, and is a very detailed and involved fantasy world), but I highly enjoyed it.

    Mini review:I received this E-Sampler via the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I had been hearing about this book everywhere.

    ***I received this arc courtesy of Netgallery in exchange for an honest review***This book! That cover! Count me in!An absolutely entertaining book. After reading the first six chapters I knew it was going to be good but sometime "knowing " is not enough, I've read books where all the interesting bits are packed into the first 50 pages while the rest of the books drags, not this book. It was absolutely amazing.Zelie has to travel with Amarie and ...

    Tomi Adeyemi's debut Children of Blood and Bone is a fantasy like no other. Zélie and Amari are fierce heroines in a story that packs an emotional punch. I'll be talking about this more as it gets closer to March, but trust me when I say that this is absolutely a must read book.
