Children of Blood and Bone


Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

In a world where magic is a birthright, passed down from parent to child in their blood, the old gods have fallen silent. Magic-users have been stripped of their power and are treated as second-class citizens, subject to brutal taxes and random violence from the king’s guards. Teenage Zélie, whose late mother taught her about magic, embarks on a perilous journey to save her village and restore magic to the world. Drawing on Western African mythology and cultural influences, this book is a great read for fans of HarryPotter, The Hunger Games, The Tortall Saga, and other Young Adult fantasy and adventure.

This series teaches you where the common phrases we use every day originated.

I am a word nerd and love learning about different languages and turn of phrases. I found this show fascinating! A lot of our slang comes from different languages due to the high amount of European immigration around the turn of the century.

I guess I’m aging because I’m really loving this new to the market radio station, highlighting 60’s and 70’s hits.  They even have DJs from back in the day playing “Pop, Soul & Rock-n-Roll” including The Beach Boys, Fleetwood Mac, The Supremes, other Motown artists, and lots of #1 hits.  And yep, it’s an Oldies Station!
