Blog Tour: Given by Nandi Taylor | Review + Playlist

FAM. When I got picked to be on this blog tour, I was over the moon excited. Do you know how rare it is for me to get to read some West African inspired fantasy novel? And this also has some Caribbean mythology involved as well, so I get two amazing cultures put together in one book, and I’m just so happy to get to read this!

Thank you again so much to the team of Fantastic Flying Book Club for including me on this tour, and hosting this tour as well. Click on the banner for the rest of the schedule AND giveaway info.
