Lady Moon by Rachel Starr Thomson


When Celine meets Tomas, they are in a cavern on the moon where she has been languishing for thirty days after being banished by her evil uncle for throwing a scrub brush at his head. Tomas is a charming and eccentric Immortal, hanging out on the moon because he’s procrastinating his destiny—meeting, and defeating, Celine’s uncle.

MY THOUGHTS: Celine's sarcastic 'languishing' immediately put me in mind of Patricia C. Wrede's Dealing with Dragons series--a fairytale that gently makes fun of the usual fairytale tropes. And once again, Rachel Starr Thomson doesn't disappoint.
Celine and Tomas (especially Tomas) made me laugh out loud at times--I enjoyed her fiesty somewhat-cluelessness and his goofy, sometimes-avoiding-the-point comments. I also had to giggle at the evil uncle's over-the-top villainy.
If you want a cute read, Lady Moon is definitely worth it.

Rating: four out of five stars
