***Thoughts after watching a discussion video about this book on donderdag 26 april 2018***
I will just leave the comment I wrote to the persons video here because my thoughts are jumbled and I do not have it in me to order them.
I went from really wanting to read Children of Blood and Bones to a 'maybe to read' because... Well I only saw European-Americans rave about it and sometimes what I think is 'diversity done well' is wildy different than what they think. I thought this was the same old fantasy story, just with a lot more dark-skinned people (and without the hair and noses).

The thing is.. I actually am light-skinned for a 'POC'. My nose is very straight and while my hair is curly it's not the same as my siblings or my mother. And I was treated different for it. Like I was... worth more (also the fact I got more compliments based on that didn't help). And this was in my own family.
I never heard the terms house-slave or field-slave but the way you described it felt very much to how me and my brothers were treated. And that's when I got a bit emotional. It's weird to feel a part of family history fall into place. A feeling I had but never could figure out why I felt that way. A part of history that got lost. And so bizar to hear it from someone on the other side of the world. Someone whose ancestors had the same experience and apparently the same way of dealing with things.
It's not something that happens only in the States but I think people are more aware of the consequences of that certain part of history there. And are louder about it (which isn't a bad thing).

So thank you for that. I will buy that book now because I do think I need to have it in my life. Also the author sounds amazing and I want to support her even if I end up hating the story :D

THAT COVER! MWAH, MWAH, MWAH!

About halfway through this book I was struggling. The story was very intriguing, but at times I really felt the author was assuming her readers were not intelligent enough to figure out what something was, so she named it something ridiculous like lepordiare(a large leopard) or pantherniarie(a large panther):you get what I am saying….but

As I mentioned--the story was very intriguing. Zelie is a young girl(soon to be woman) who is born into magic through the blood of her mother. There are ten tribes in the land of Orisha -and this land had magic once, each tribe with a different power. But when Zelie was just a child, a ruthless King killed her mother and other strong woman of magic, and the magic died. Now Zelie, along with her brother and a runaway Princess, are on a quest to bring back the magic.
They have one chance and little time, so of course there are huge roadblocks along the way.

If you are a fantasy fan, I recommend you give this one a go. It is the first of story-line that I hope will keep getting better as the authors character and world-building skills advance.

All in all it was a very enjoyable read. I was leaning toward 3 stars, but the last few chapters were griping and I changed my mind and I bumped it up to 4. NOTE: if you do pick up don’t ignore the Authors notes and the Acknowledgments at the back of the book, well worth the time. ( )

DNF.

I made it about halfway through this book before deciding to abandon it. I was bored. The characters didn't feel like they were going anywhere and the adventure seemed frivolous. I think the unfamiliar West-African roots of the mythology and accent of the reader (I did the audiobook) kept me engaged far longer than I would have been normally. I thought it was hiding something deeper and more interesting, but at its heart this feels like a rather generic Y/A fantasy. ( )

I heard so much hype around this book for over a year. It won a Goodreads Award. It won a Nebula. It was put up for a Hugo this year. Over and over and over I heard that this book was beautiful and amazing and I kept feeling guilty for not having read it yet, when finally my school book club decreed we were reading it for the kids for December (as well as the sequel in early 2020).

I really loved this book until almost exactly the 63% mark. I loved everything about the characters who were set up, the world it was describing, the horror past and the dark, deep, drive for a brighter future. I love the families of brothers and sisters on each side, so very different, trying to pick their ways through who they were as singular people, as family members to each other, and then as 'people' in more global sense (both religiously and politically).

At the 63% mark, though, it suddenly shifts entirely in about a 2-3 day period where people go from hating each other and wanting to stab their enemies to claiming to be deeply in love, and having wanted 'to hold [the other person]' forever now. Then there's this extra-long party that suddenly happens in the middle of a handful of days countdown to D-Day to Save Magic, that makes no sense why they stopped for, and even less sense why they suddenly panic the next day about it.

The main romance does not have any growth lead-up, and I honestly loved the girl's pillow talk midnight as an example of how one does risky growth with someone as the best display of it in this book. ( )

This book was utterly amazing. I borrowed this book through Libby, and I am so glad I did. I read Children of Blood and Bone as a way to give myself a break from all the history reading I do (both nonfiction and fiction). Tomi Adeyemi does an amazing job with weaving this story together, and it was beautifully told. Once I finished it and returned my loan, I obviously had to immediately borrow the second book, Children of Virtue and Vengence, which I am so excited to get into. ( )

Digesting volumes of brutal and downtrodden images can be dangerous. It can lead to despair, paralysis, and/or self-fulfilling prophecies of further demise. Millions of people are ordinarily numb to the fact that hyper-violence and wretched Africanized worlds are hallmarks of modern media (esp. Hollywood), and accept it wholesale. Remarkably though, Adeyemi inserts a critical lifeline into this abyss–the concept that the Gods of one’s own ancestors (in this case the Orisha) provide salvation unlike any other.
 
If a “Black Lives Matter–inspired fantasy novel” sounds like an ungainly hybrid—a pitch gone wrong—think again... The creator of a mythical land called Orïsha, Adeyemi taps into a rich imaginative lineage as she weaves West African mythology into a bespoke world that resonates with our own.

I try not to think of her.
But when I do, I think of rice.
When mama was around, the hut always smelled of jollof rice.
I think about the way her dark skin glowed like the summer sun, the way her smile made Baba come alive. The way her white hair fuzzed and coiled, an untamed crown that breathed and thrived.
I hear the myths she would tell me at night. Tzain's laughter when they played agbon in the park.
Baba's cries as the soldiers wrapped a chain around her neck. Her screams as they dragged her into the dark.
The incantations that spewed from her mouth like lava. The magic of death that led her astray.
I think about the way her corpse hung from that tree.
I think about the king who took her away.
