Book Review: Mooncakes

Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker and Wendy Xu


Nova is perfectly happy living with her grandmothers and working in their New England bookstore—until she follows a white wolf into the woods and discovers her childhood crush, Tam. But Tam has been chasing a particularly nasty demon, and they’re going to need all the help they can get to defeat it…

This was super cute and fluffy!

There’s so much representation—people of color, fat rep, disability rep, and oodles of queer rep, with a F/NB romance at the heart of the story.

It reminded me a little bit of The Witch Boy, but for an older audience, since the leads have graduated high school. However, despite Nova and Tam’s ages, this reads very YA and would be appropriate for tweens as well.

My only wish was that it was a little longer!

To be honest I knew I had to read it when I saw the blurb, because some of the elements were super crazy similar to several of my short stories: small town (albeit this is in New England and mine are in Oregon), hard of hearing witch, werewolf and queer romance. However, this is completely different (whew) and adorable and cute and super duper queer.

I received this ARC from NetGalley for an honest review.
