Before I really start in on this review, I have to say that I cannot wait for the next book in the series. The epilogue of this book has me so on edge and worried that I need to know what happens next. I NEED to know, Rita. Like. Medically need to know. I am worried and I have feelings and I have questions! I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS!
If you’re new here, you might not know that I am a sucker for fairy tales, especially when they are LGBTQ+ retellings of the fabled classics. If you’re an avid reader of The Queerblr, then you absolutely know how much of a sucker I am for fairy tale retellings!
Mooncakes, by Suzanne Walker & Wendy Xu is a magical graphic novel that will cast a spell over your heart. This self-contained story follows a diverse cast of characters and pulls the reader right into the magical setting. Walker & Xu have crafted a touching story that weaves magic into the modern realm through the tale of a capable hard of hearing witch, a non-binary werewolf learning their own innate magics, a science minded best friend, and delightfully supportive and queer grandmas.
