Moon Child Book Tag

I saw the Moon Child Book tag over at Lowlight Library and thought it would be fun to do.

1. Full Moon: A book with supernatural creatures in it

It may come as a surprise to some, but I’m not a huge “were” fan. I don’t really like werewolves all that much. However, one of my favorite trilogies involving werewolves is The Dark Divine trilogy by Bree Despain. I love that it’s a retelling of The Prodigal Son and the story is about redemption. Plus, there are some awesome kissing scenes!

2. Starry Night: A book with a beautiful starry cover

3. Out of this World: Your favorite sci-fi book

Anyone who knows me knows the answer to this question. 😉 Dune by Frank Herbert, which also happens to be my all-time favorite book. I adore everything about it. I love Herbert’s writing, the complexity of the story, the characters, and the ethical/moral issues it explores.

4. Creature of the Night: A thriller with a killer

I used to read a lot of thrillers, but I don’t read them that often anymore. My favorite one is probably And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. However, to be honest, I actually like the play ending better than the book ending. I’d love the chance to see the play again as it has been a good 21 years.

5. The Moon Controls the Tides: A book that deals with water (setting, powers, etc.)

I would choose Dune again since water is at the center of the book, but I want to choose a different book. This is a stretch, but I’m going to choose New Moon by Stephenie Meyer because of the cliff diving. If I were a stronger swimmer and I weren’t terrified of breaking my neck, I’d totally want to go cliff diving.

6. Daughters of the Moon: A book that features some serious girl power and friendship

When I think of a strong female lead, I think of Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I love her. I know she often doubts herself, but she’s still strong. She’s had to learn how to survive in the environment she’s in and I think she thrives in it not just survives. And, I love her friendship with Iko and Peony.

7. Spaceship: Your OTP (one true pairing)

I pretty much ship whichever couple I’m reading at the time. But, if I have to choose one couple, I’d always choose Bella and Edward. It’s thanks to Twilight (and Harry Potter) that I read. I compare all “romances” to the same feeling I had when I first read Twilight. If they come close, then it’s a pretty sure thing I’ll love it.

8. Waxes and Wanes: A book that played with your emotions

Don’t they all do that? Or, at least good ones? Okay, okay. The last book I read that really played with my emotions was Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesa Zappia. I didn’t realize it would have the impact on me that it did. I ended up crying during several parts of it.

9. Music of the Night: A book that has to do with music

I honestly don’t remember any books out right that are mostly about music. However, City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare does talk about music. Two of the main characters are musicians–Jace Herondale and Simon Lewis.

10. After Hours: A book with night in the title

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern is one of my favorite books. It is beautifully written and magical. Morgenstern had a way of transporting me to the circus and feeling what the characters felt.

11. Crescent Moon: A book that features a goddess or goddesses

The Everneath trilogy by Brodi Ashton is one of my favorite trilogies. It’s a retelling of the Hades/Persephone myth. I love Brodi’s writing and I love her take on Greek mythology.

What books would you choose? Who is your OTP?

    Fun tag. I just started Eliza and her Monsters. I’m suffering from a book hangover so hopefully this one can get me out of it.
