I’ve downloaded all my favourite and new reads to my Kindle, and I find that it has really filled my free time with stories about adventure, romance and knowledge this Quarantine season. However there are just some books I still love to go back to read in hard copy, ‘Children of Blood and Bone‘ by Tomi Adeyemi is one. It’s a fantastic story about magic and adventure, set in a re-imagined Lagos and neighbouring towns and villages. It follows four young people who go on a journey of discovery and whose paths cross in interesting ways. I get so excited talking about it! I definitely recommend it.

What are you currently reading? Or what are some of your favourite reads?

It’s a new month, and I just want to wish you all a great one, with lots positive energy, blessings and breakthroughs!

Lots of love.
