For the past two months Im in the mood to read fantasy books written by Asian Authors, and this debut fantasy by @suelynntan Daughter of The Moon Goddess is one of it.

The story telling here is very refreshing as it often takes the cultural guideline of the host culture allowing us a glimpse of a different perception of a world we think we know.

Here‘s my review for a book I listened to on Scribd. The first time I read it, I read in the physical format but this time, I listened to it. This was a reread for me. I liked it better on audio. I have the entire series in physical format but I‘m going to listen to the series on audio. I used to like reading books on my own but I like audiobooks better. The last time I read a physical book, it took me a long time to get finished.

A modern day retelling of sleeping beauty that delves into fairytale folklore and explores the idea of a multiverse. Strong female characters who fight curses, the patriarchy, and premature death. Truly delicious!

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I went into it thinking it was going to be spooky, was down for the ride when it became a story of forbidden love, and was especially into it's eventual transformation into a tale of revenge. This was a great new take on a classic story and I recommend this to anyone looking for a bit of witchy folklore in their lives.

I picked this up, lured in by the Poe references (and certainly wasn't disappointed there) but this felt too much like a YA written for younger readers for me to love it. I enjoyed theultiple POVs and I'd love to actually know what was going on...just not enough to pick up the second book in this duology.

A heart-warming re-telling of Cinderella full of reality tv-show drama. Cindy, a recent fashion school graduate, returns home to her stepmother and stepsisters to figure out her next career steps. An unexpected contestant vacancy on the reality show Before Midnight, which is run by her stepmother, results in Cindy being added to the roster. I enjoyed every single nod to Disney‘s Cinderella. The body positivity added to the magic of the story.

Graciouswarriorprincess I enjoyed this book. You need to read the second book in the series. 1d
Zuhkeeyah @Graciouswarriorprincess I loved By The Book! I read it before realizing it‘s part of a series. Little Mermaid is next right? (edited) 15m
