Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker & Wendy Xu
A story of love and demons, family and witchcraft.
Nova Huang knows more about magic than your average teen witch. She works at her grandmothers’ bookshop, where she helps them loan out spell books and investigate any supernatural occurrences in their New England town.
One fateful night, she follows reports of a white wolf into the woods, and she comes across the unexpected: her childhood crush, Tam Lang, battling a horse demon in the woods. As a werewolf, Tam has been wandering from place to place for years, unable to call any town home.
Pursued by dark forces eager to claim the magic of wolves and out of options, Tam turns to Nova for help. Their latent feelings are rekindled against the backdrop of witchcraft, untested magic, occult rituals, and family ties both new and old in this enchanting tale of self-discovery.
I first found this graphic novel over at Paper Procrastinators, and the art looked so super cute that I had to investigate!! When I read the summary, I was fully invested. This sounds like it’s going to be an amazingly witchy and paranormal read. After reading a few other reviews, it’s got amazing rep and more. I’ve never featured a graphic novel before here on Can’t Wait, but this just sounds so so so up my alley that I canNOT wait.
✔️ THIS BOOK IS TIANA APPROVED!
Um, mooncakes certainly sounds like something that Tiana might be cooking up in the kitchen. Plus, I think she would certainly see a kinship with Nova on the cover baking up something delicious – and the witchcraft/magic that is happening in this novel!
What do you think? Is this on your book TBR as well?
