Have you read Tomi Adeyemi's Children of Blood and Bone and the second in the series, Children of Vice and Vengeance? They're the start of a fantasy series that takes place in Africa where wielders of magic ("magi") have been terribly oppressed. But a commoner, Zelie, teams up with some royals to end the oppression against the magi-- and end the fear of magic. Because it's not a stand-alone book, things go awry, and Children of Vice and Vengeance is a lot darker than Blood and Bone.
In January, Adeyemi was interviewed about the oppression, heavy topics, and the way Adeyemi utilizes diction (word choice) and the language of her characters. It's super interesting! You can read the article here.
Dragons are part of our cultural milieu, and with Game of Thrones, they are more popular than ever. #thanksdaenerys
Last month, I shared on the Teen Instagram a list of read-alikes according to your Dungeons and Dragons class. In case you missed it, here it is again!
For all you Supernatural fans who can't get enough of the flannel-wearing, trenchcoat-sporting, and rugged looks of the Winchester brothers and Cas, I present to you this list of read-alikes from Bustle:
CW juggernaut Supernatural just aired its 300th episode during its 14th season on television. It goes without saying that this a huge milestone in the world of TV, where hitting syndication (typically 88 episodes, or about four seasons) is all that most programs can ask for. If you're not familiar with the premise, the show stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as the Winchester brothers Sam and Dean — famed hunters of all things ghostly, demonic or otherwise evil — as they fight the bad guys, grapple with their pasts, and gift viewers with arguably one of the greatest family love stories to ever hit TV screens.
With 2019 upon us, I leave you with an exciting adventure story, to take with you on your adventure into 2019. What was your favorite adventure-y read of 2019?
