Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker & Wendy Xu [BOOK REVIEW]

Mooncakes by suzanne walker and wendy xu book review cute adorable graphic novel books blog diary of difference diaryofdifference

Graphic novels are not usually my first choice of books. But after seeing the book cover, I couldn’t resist the urge. I just had to read Mooncakes.

Mooncakes is a cute paranormal story, filled with magic, love, family… In a paranormal city, Nova, a teen witch goes to the woods and follows a white wolf. It turns out that the wolf is her high-school crush, Tam. It would all be lovely, but Tam is in life danger and needs help. The two girls help each other and their connection grows throughout the book.

The scenery of the cosy home of Nova’s grandmothers and the lovely bookshelves gave me a wonderful feeling of comfort. I loved their warm house, the lovely relationship they had and the love you could feel through the pages.

I enjoyed Mooncakes – it was adorable. If you like graphic novels, cute art and a little sparkle of magic – this book will not disappoint you.

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher, Lion Forge, for sending me an E-Arc copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review.

How to make a postcard from a single piece of paper. DIY

Hello guys. Today I’m going to let you inside my world. You’ll get the opportunity to see how I make my drawing postcards, and maybe it will be an inspiration for you to make one too, and show it to me after. 😉

You are probably wondering what you’ll need, so here is the list of requirements:

– Piece of paper (yes, one piece of paper. Only one. A4 format.)
– Pencil
– Rubber
– Glue
– Whatever else you think you’ll need to express your creativity (coloring pencils, ribbons, stickers, markers and more.. )
– I used retractable knife for cutting the paper, but I sometimes just fold the paper and then rip it out.

And yes, that’s all you need to make a handmade postcard. Oh also, creativity. You’ll need that too, but I’m sure you have lots of creativity inside you, so it won’t be a problem.

STEP ONE:

Take one piece of paper. Yeah, this is the easiest step, you guessed it.

Fold the paper in two and cut it in half. That way, you’ll have two equal pieces.

Cut those pieces in half too, and you’ll get four equal pieces, in a postcard dimension.

STEP TWO:

Take one of the four pieces of paper, and that will be the platform you’ll be drawing on. In this case I drew a couple hugging each other. And I only used pencil.

STEP THREE:

We are gonna use the three pieces that remained too. Take the glue and glue them together. That way, you’ll make a stronger platform, so the postcard will be thicker and it won’t fold.

Here’s how that looks.

STEP FOUR:

Make the postcard and send it to someone, and make them happy 😀 It is a lovely feeling, when you know someone has been thinking about you.
And don’t forget to send me a picture of what you did. I love seeing how I inspire people.

I love you guys,
Innah
