    ARC acquired at Book Expo in exchange for an honest review. The next full moon snuck up on me Oh friends, this was truly the graphic novel I ve been waiting forever for From witchy magic, to unconditional family and found family love, to being the person you want to be on your own time, to the cutest F NB relationship ever, I am so in love with Mooncakes One night, in a sleepy and paranormal New England town, a witch follows a white wolf into the woods She doesn t know what to expect, but it most certainly isn t a horse demon fighting with her childhood crush With the help of one another and some cute grandmas they unfold a story about a cult and people wanting to harness werewolf magic for their own And the two main characters of this graphic novel are everything One, being Nova, who is Chinese American, and still coping with the loss of her parents, while living with her two grandmothers be still, my heart All of these women are witches and collect rare spell books And Tam, who is also Chinese American, and a nonbinary werewolf who grew up with Nova, but recently left their family who wasn t very kind to them And if I haven t already sold you with the plot and the five star rating, this is also just a story about two young adults learning who they want to be, both separately and together Nova and Tam are both dealing with hurt from their parents, and even though it is a different kind of hurt, they are there for one another, and unconditionally support one another It s beautiful, and powerful, and I had the biggest smile on my face while reading from the first to last page Overall, this really was the queer, magical story that I ve always wanted I loved the rep, I loved the story, I loved the illustrations, I love the banter, and I truly love both of these main characters so very much I can t wait to see what Wendy and Suzanne do next Also, I m totally buying mooncakes on the way home tomorrow, because your girl has such a craving Blog Instagram Twitter Tumblr Youtube Twitch The quotes above were taken from an ARC and are subject to change upon publication.Content and Trigger Warnings talk of abusive parental figures, captivity, and loss of loved ones in the past I read this for SummerAThon BONUS I got to meet both creators at Book Expo and they were so kind Even though I was probably a little awkward and called Wendy birb royalty.

    but this feels right, doesn t it This was such a soft and lovely story filled with so many magical moments From it s amazing cast of characters to its storyline that had me hooked from the start Mooncakes was a joy to behold and the romance between Tam and Nova gave me all the feels Tam is a non binary werewolf and Nova is a chinese american queer witch that lives with her two kickass grandmothers I enjoyed the art style and the narrative kept me turning the pages This was such a cute read that I flew through but I really wish that we got substance on the magic system and the backgrounds of each character that led them to their arcs Nevertheless, highly recommend to anyone looking for something to swoon over _______________

    My thoughts in a nutshell It could ve been better Let s start with what I adored this graphic novel.I enjoyed the drawing style It is gorgeous I really like that the main character is non binary and another protagonist is half Chinese half American queer witch I think the diversity works very well in this novel.The family dynamic and friendship is powerful It is a vital part of the comic.I don t like the in medias res beginning This novel didn t have a reasonable starting point or accurate ending I hate the insta love We didn t know the character s past.I don t understand the title Why is it Mooncake I don t remember any of that.Overall, it is just okay It was sometimes monotonous The story didn t hold my attention.I gave it 3 stars It was a fast read I wouldn t recommend buying it if you can borrow it from the library The ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

    what even is there to say except this is INCREDIBLE and lovely a magically inclusive story of finding your home and not facing your battles alone I am pretty much just a heart eyes pile of smush which, to be frank, is an excellent book recommendation in itself This reminded me of The Tea Dragon Society and maybe a little of Sabrina, The Teenage Witch but this is queerer and softer It was just a delight I could thoroughly read an entire series about Tam and Nova the diversity gave me such warm and comforted feelsit has such a lot of loving rep with Tam being nonbinary, Nova is Deaf and wears hearing aids, and they re both Chinese American Nova s grandmas are a queer couple Nova has an epic strong female friendship too, like I totally loved it This book does better female friendships in 250 pages with just pictures than I ve seen full blown YA books do Step up, literature This is the content we deserve.And Nova and Tam are so cute Like when they BLUSH, I am just I love this kind of romance, a soft and tentative one, that is also incredibly much about finding someone to feel safe with Tam is on the run for reasons not disclosed immediately and they re also a shapeshifting werewolf while Nova s family are a long line of witches They were childhood friends that lost contact, but they find each other again when Tam runs into a demon in the woods But there are hidden reasons the demon is hereThis is the kind of graphic novel to totally fill your heart The art is incredible, so emotive and fluid and fun The cooking scenes made me downright hungry, how dare u, and the family love and inclusivity and wholesomeness and epic and maybe sinister magical plot will truly capture your imagination It s SOFT I love.

    Thanks to Oni Press for the advanced review copy This book was charming and a fresh perspective from a diverse cast I loved that the love interest is non binary and the main character wears hearing aids, and all were discussed so naturally This is definitely a great book to come out in October because the cozy and fall vibe of this book is definitely there But although it was quick and cute, I found it to be a bit cookie cutter and generic, plot wise It almost reads like a middle grade because the events occur formulaically, the characters make questionable decisions that force them to suffer the consequences, and there is a bit of instalove I guess what I was wishing for was emotional depth to the characters Still, I enjoyed my reading experience despite the ARC I read being unfinished half the art wasn t colored in , so I m sure the final version will be stunning and this book will be a lot of people s jam.

    That was so cute and included so many things that I adored This had everything for a great graphic novel witches, demons, werewolves, friendship, family and love It also included cults, sadistic plans and occult rituals.Nova is a witch, working with her two Nana s both witches in their rather unique bookstore They procure certain books that help with spell research and work from curses to potions to igniting magic The family also do a little witchcraft on the side to help with neighbourhood issues from the supernatural One day Nova hears of a white wolf roaming the forest, a demon prowling in the area, and flashing lights occurring at random times The white wolf reminds her of a friend from childhood, a friend she was in love with, and so she sets out to investigate the mysterious happenings in the forest.Here she encounters not only an unexpected demon, but also her old best friend and crush, Tam who also happens to be a werewolf Soon Nova discovers there are sinister forces at work, posing danger to her family and to Tam This book explored and incorporated inclusivity very well There is a F NB relationship, a plus sized character, and disability representation While these were all made apparent of the character either through drawings or phrases , the character s were never solely that one thing, and were made 3D with human emotions and interactions or witches and werewolves of course Nova also had such an interesting family in terms of ghosts and seeing how the consequences of magic can go wrong There were some amazing moments in the novel where love, family and friendship provided such a supportive, and non judgemental, zone Thank you for NetGalley for providing me a copy
