It’s been a while since I’ve last posted, but I’ve been really busy and low-key stressed (hurh hurh not a big surprise). I’ve still had an amazing January so far and I hope all of you had it too!
Remember how I was in a huge reading slump a while ago? Well, reading this book and Woven in Moonlight DEFINITELY helped me (like a bunch).
The thing is, I GOT A PHYSICAL COPY OF THIS BOOK. And, um, that’s huge and I think I screamed when the publisher told me??!?! I’M DYING Y’ALL BECAUSE IT’S JUST TOO GORGEOUS.
So without further ado, let’s jump into the review (well, my thoughts on WiM)!
1. The Cover
Ok, not even kidding, the cover is soo pretty and intricate and ugh I’m in love in with the cover!!
I mean, look at it?! Isabel Ibañez actually designed the cover herself?? We love a multifaceted author! (ok, but I actually love this cover!! look at the cute designs and the moon and the jaguar and the tapestry!!)
2. The Premise
Even before I started reading Woven in Moonlight, I was already intrigued by the synopsis! I’ll show it below:
Ximena is the decoy Condesa, a stand-in for the last remaining Illustrian royal. Her people lost everything when the usurper, Atoc, used an ancient relic to summon ghosts and drive the Illustrians from La Ciudad. Now Ximena’s motivated by her insatiable thirst for revenge, and her rare ability to spin thread from moonlight.
When Atoc demands the real Condesa’s hand in marriage, it’s Ximena’s duty to go in her stead. She relishes the chance, as Illustrian spies have reported that Atoc’s no longer carrying his deadly relic. If Ximena can find it, she can return the true aristócrata to their rightful place.
She hunts for the relic, using her weaving ability to hide messages in tapestries for the resistance. But when a masked vigilante, a warm-hearted princess, and a thoughtful healer challenge Ximena, her mission becomes more complicated. There could be a way to overthrow the usurper without starting another war, but only if Ximena turns her back on revenge—and her Condesa.
It literally says ‘Bolivia politics’ and you expect me to not be hooked?! Continue reading “10 Thoughts On ‘Woven In Moonlight’”
