Children of Blood and Bone is the first of a trilogy, which takes place in a mystical version of Africa. While some places are make believe, like Orïsha, there are certainly real places mentioned like Lagos. Ancient Gods and Goddesses from the Yoruba religion play a major part of the backbone of the storyline as they guide the main character, Zélie Adebola, embarks on a destined mission to bring magic back to her people.

The Celestine Prophecy by #JamesRedfield
Focusing on the evolution of humanity, energy and relationships, the encounters train us in the insights & eventually help us reveal who we are personally, and what humans we are/can be as a species. This book ultimately (bravely) tries to explain the purpose & function of human existence — and what happened to the ancient Mayan civilization which disappeared centuries ago.
“Casual Vacancy” by J.K. Rowling
From the writer of Harry Potter, here is an adult novel complete with gossip, adultery, family issues and social commentary staged in storyline of a British political office election. Instead of a main character, there are a variety of families to keep track of. Their stories intertwine seamlessly while providing the readers a wonderful (fictional) account of daily British life in soap-opera fashion.

“The Power Playbook” by @LaLa
Written by Brittany Shawnté
Long before her stint on Starz’ Power, La La Anthony was a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment business. I grew up watching her co-hosting MTV’s TRL and hosting other shows, as well as starring in movies and TV shows. On the interviewing side, I loved her classy interviewing style, while still managing to keep control during shows. So, of course, when I heard she was coming out with a book detailing rules to success, I had to order it.
“Time Out” by Claudia Rowe
Written by President ELLA
This is one of the most heart-wrenching stories I’ve ever heard. Time Out details the real life story of Willard Jimerson, a man who went to jail at the age of 13 for “Lack of vision, Lack of purpose. [and] Poor self-image.” Claudia Rowe helps gather photos and details to tell Willard’s story and explain what happened the night he shot his classmate, Jamie Lynn Wilson, in the back. Combined with details of the political climate, we are able to see the societal circumstances that led Willard to the fateful night.
“The Line” by @Amie_Knight #BookReview #Interview via @HEABookToursPR
Written by PresidentELLA
“Home” is where love is. All it takes is one person to show another love, to make them feel at home. Everly, named after the train station she was abandoned in as an infant, spent a great part of her life surviving on her own. “You can only run so long, and I’d been doing it since the beginning. A slew of abusive foster homes always had me running back to the streets. A place where I, strangely, always felt safest. The people on the streets ignored me, sure, but they didn’t beat me, try to touch me or starve me,” she explains about life before Mama Lou… before Cole.
Imagine being without food, shelter and love? The love of strangers is what ends up bringing her back home. The tale of strength, trust and compassion both melted my heart and revived it. Not only is this tear-tugging love story inspirational, but I got to send a few interview questions to the Amie Knight herself!
