Our July book club theme is 'books with maps' and my pick was Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi, which certainly didn't disappoint!⁠ ⁠ Alternating between the perspectives of Zelie, Amari and Inan, this YA Fantasy book takes you on an action-packed adventure filled with many exciting and also heartbreaking moments. I really enjoyed the multiple perspectives and each character’s arc as well as the writing style, in particular the descriptions of the story’s setting.⁠ ⁠ I've just started reading the sequel Children of Virtue and Vengeance and can't wait to find out what will happen next! - Erin⁠ ⁠ Don't forget to share your July book club picks this week using #bloggersbookshelf 📚⁠ ⁠ -------------------⁠ ⁠ #bookclub #bookstagram #onlinebookclub #bookswithmaps #instabooks #bookbloggers #childrenofbloodandbone #yafantasy #yalit #beautifulbooks #bookswelove #currentlyreading #bookcovers ⁠ ⁠

(I received this novel for review via Netgalley.) I had to try and create my own @cosyreads style cosy photo for this book! Our @bloggersbookshelf Book Club theme for this month is ‘a book with a map’, and The Ship of Shadows sure fits that bill! Following Aleja, a girl desperate for adventure, who accidentally finds herself part of a real pirate crew on a real magical ship, The Ship of Shadows is a joyful middle grade story, full of fun, friendship, and lots of cake! I don’t generally read a lot of middle grade fiction but I couldn’t resist this novel set on board a magical pirate ship, and I’m glad I didn’t! This novel is so much fun, I’d recommend it for anyone who spent their childhood with their head in books, dreaming of adventure!

What are you currently reading? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of the books that I added to my 'to be REread' book list at the start of the year was The Name of the Star, by Maureen Johnson. I read it years ago but never got around to reading the rest of the series, even though I really enjoyed it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also, the @bloggersbookshelf Book Club theme for July is 'a book with a map in it' (which this one does), so it's the perfect time to re-read! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, tell me: what are you reading this week? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ---------- ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thenameofthestar #nzcontentcollective #yabookstagram #bookstagram #books #book #bookaholic #booksofinstagram #confessionsofabookaddict #bookaddict #bookworm #bookreview #booklover #instaread #readthisbook #fiction #ya #lblogger #lifestyleblogger #nzbloggers #bookworm #bibliophile #reader #igbooks #bookstack #amreading #bookphotography #whattoread #epicreads
