Wondering what’s on Tomi Adeyemi’s quarantine reading list?

Adeyemi recently shared five books she is reading (and re-reading) during the global lockdown on O, The Oprah Magazine‘s Instagram Stories. Adeyemi’s appearance was part of the magazine’s “The Book Break” series, which asks a different author each week to share five books to escape into while social distancing is still in place.

As is to be expected from the author of the wildly popular Legacy of Orïsha fantasy series, Adeyemi has some reads to share that will definitely take you out of this world. To find out what they are, watch the sequenced clips below — then read them while you wait ever so patiently for the film versions of Adeyemi’s books to be released!
