This provides the reader with an amazing experience where they learn about Nigerian culture and shows that discrimination can be found anywhere. I do wish there was more information about how juju works because there was many times where we are just told that they do something but don‘t fully get to see/understand what they are doing. There are many lessons to be learned in this and it‘s a great source of diversity for young readers.

Schnoebs @Birdsong28 I‘m using this for the immigration prompt for #52booksin52weeks because Sunny is an American immigrant in Nigeria and there‘s a lot confrontation where she‘s discriminated because of it 14h

This story is what happens when this post flood society has to face the reality of living in a world where the gods and monsters of Native American folklore come back to life and the clan powers that have been dormant for generations manifest in certain people. I like that Maggie isn‘t really you‘re typical hero because she‘s a monster slayer and isn‘t instantly liked. She‘s a face in the YA genre that was definitely needed.

Schnoebs @Birdsong28 definitely had to pick this for the post apocalyptic world prompt for #52booksin52weeks 4d

Lysandra is my queen! Elide took a long time to grow on me but she is now up there with my favs. Aelin and Rowan are probably one of the greatest parts of this book but nothing comes close to that mind inside of Aelin‘s head. There were so many challenges and battles our group had to face. The best part of this entire thing though was how much of Aelin‘s past really played such a huge role in all of it!

Aelin returns to Rifthold and changes everything. I was 100% here for it and hands down Rowan is my favorite still! We see so much character development and I am so happy because Chaol is finally coming back into my good graces. My favorite part hands down was seeing our different characters stepping into the rolls they have been fighting against.

Being unfamiliar with the a lot of Greek mythology, I can‘t fully comment on how well this reimagining was. The writing was very easy and flowed well but it didn‘t keep my attention as much as I would like. I did like the focus on power, how it influences people and the way Circe reflected on her past actions and how she addressed them in the future and took responsibility for them.

I read a lot of series over the past year and I was trying hard to not repeat books from the same series for the prompts. That being said, I was able to read 27/50 prompts but could probably add more if I wanted to. The best part was finding some of my favorite books! Thanks to @julesG for being an amazing buddy for the challenge and reading DODO with me 😍

It‘s an interesting book but I‘m having such a hard time staying motivated to finish it. I have less than 100 pages so hopefully I‘ll get through it soon.
