Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme where you choose a random book from your Goodreads tbr and highlight it in a post.
! Once you choose a book and create your post, make sure you link and reference the creator, @Lauren’s Page Turners !
EDIT: Budget Tales Book Blog has taken over the role of host from Lauren’s Page Turners.
This week’s pick is a book I want to read because of both the blurb and the cover. I absolutely love this cover, it’s stunning. And the synopsis sounds so interesting and unique.
It’s DAUGHTER OF THE MOON GODDESS by Sue Lynn Tan!
Daughter of the Moon Goddess (The Celestial Kingdom Duology #1) by Sue Lynn Tan
Expected publication 11 January 2022
Growing up on the moon, Xingyin is accustomed to solitude, unaware that she is being hidden from the feared Celestial Emperor who exiled her mother for stealing his elixir of immortality. But when Xingyin’s magic flares and her existence is discovered, she is forced to flee her home, leaving her mother behind.
Alone, powerless, and afraid, she makes her way to the Celestial Kingdom, a land of wonder and secrets. Disguising her identity, she seizes an opportunity to learn alongside the emperor’s son, mastering archery and magic, even as passion flames between her and the prince.
To save her mother, Xingyin embarks on a perilous quest, confronting legendary creatures and vicious enemies across the earth and skies. But when treachery looms and forbidden magic threatens the kingdom, she must challenge the ruthless Celestial Emperor for her dream—striking a dangerous bargain in which she is torn between losing all she loves or plunging the realm into chaos.
