Last month, I gave you a glimpse at Akata Witch along with some fashion inspirations from the first book of this Nigerian fantasy series. Today, I am thrilled to return to this world with a review of the newly released Akata Warrior as part of the BLOG TOUR. If I wasn’t already thrilled to share this book with the world, last week, Nnedi announced there will be a THIRD book in the series, so WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??

From The Weight of Feathers to When the Moon Was Ours, Anna-Marie McLemore has blessed us with gorgeous, mystical writing and magical realism time and time again. In one of this year’s most anticipated books, Wild Beauty, she once again proves herself a masterful story teller of tales steeped in family, feminism and flowers.
Don’t forget about me.
As the last name of the main characters implies Wild Beauty simply an unforgettable and rare book that will stay with you long after you finish the last page of the novel. I am thrilled to be part of the blog tour today and bring you music inspired by this work of art.
