Children of blood and bone by Tomi Adeyemi
Hi Books Lovers,
Today’s book is Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi, released in Italy on October 2nd thanks to Rizzoli. There would be a lot to say about this book because it was really, but really beautiful and exciting. The themes are hundreds. If you remember I had bought this book, the first edition with special contents, because I had heard about this book right from the beginning. Let’s face it, debut on the New York Times bestselling list just recently from the publication, and be immediately opted for a film, must also mean something. Yet I had not had the opportunity to put my hands on these book, of which only the cover is nothing less than amazing (and then it also has a map which give this book one more point), so I immediately took the opportunity when I saw that it was going out in Italy too.
I would like to spend a few lines to tell you a moment about the author’s choice to write this book. Tomi Adeyemi is to be admired, because she had a crazy courage to write and also want to publish this book that she started writing in a period of her life in which every time she turned on the TV always saw cruelty from police to black people. She had a huge courage to write this book from the strong, anti-racist theme, mixing everything, in more than 500 pages, in a world created by her, a world set in Nigeria where her grandparents lived and has a part on her heart.
One could sometimes be scared to see great books, get discouraged to start reading them, and the task of us bloggers is to advise you the right books, and that’s what I’m doing now, because I can assure you that in my life I have never read such a great book that in reality it has read itself for such a light writing, the living environment, the adventures that make us want to enter inside the book and start the search to save the magic together with Zélie, Amari, Tzain and Inan.
But don’t think for sure that the beauty of this book is still over, because it’s not! You can not even imagine what awaits you at the end … something happens that will make you want to have the second book, Children of Virtue and Vengeance releaseing in 2019, in your hands more than anything else.
And if I still have not convinced you I leave also some fanarts made by talented artists dedicated to this book … and of course also the Map of Orisha.
