Hello readers, and welcome to my first wrap up post of 2022! I can’t believe how quickly January has flown by! It has been a rather slow reading month for me however so I’m aiming to catch up on my TBR in February.
Goodreads Challenge Progress: 10/150
Book of the Month
Xingyin has grown up on the moon and her life has been idyllic, if solitary, with only her mother and a trusted attendant for company, unknowing that her mother, the moon goddess Chang’e has been exiled by the Celestial Emperor for stealing the elixir of immortality and she herself has been hidden away from the Emperor’s wrath.
When her presence is accidentally revealed, Xingyin flees her home, leaving everything she has ever known behind and finds herself in the Celestial Kingdom, alone and friendless in an unknown place. Through a happy turn of events, she wins an opportunity to learn alongside Liwei, the emperor’s son, eventually rising to become a skilled archer in the army. Never losing sight of her ultimate goal to free her mother, Xingyin embarks upon a journey with many dangerous quests to gain the Celestial Emperor’s favour and break the enchantment.
