  1. I can’t wait to read Daughter of the Moon Goddess! Thank you for reminding me! I’ll have to pull it out of my stacks and put it in my face so I read it. lol. I also have the sequel. I just finished reading Strike the Zither by Joan He and I think you’d enjoy it! But I am scared to recommend books to you since you *ahem* tear them apart in the ratings. 🤣 You have no idea how relieved I was that you enjoyed ADSOM!

      1. Have you read She Who Became the Sun by Shelley Parker-Chan? Strike the Zither is similar to it. SWBTS is closer to a Mulan retelling.
