Book Review-The Girl Who Sleeps in the Moon-Acacia Warmerdam

Monday, June 10, 2024



This is a somewhat weird and long book about a Godess and humans. I got lost a few times between the dream world and real life. It is definitely a romance (in both worlds) which can get a bit risque. There are several sexual sections that I tended to skim over.

This is the second in this series--I did not read the first. The ending is a cliffhanger for sure--Good vs Evil is a theme that seemed to be a threaded throughout. This is all I can say--you really have to read this novel to understand what I'm trying to say!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

An Egyptian goddess retelling that flips the script.

Emilia spent her whole life standing still until a mysterious book changed her life.

A dual timeline romantic odyssey set in the 1950s and a kingdom in the near past follows Emilia and Liza, two witches who struggle with their boundless power and the societal expectations of their times.

Burdened with unexplained mysterious occurrences and people around her getting hurt, Emmy frantically searches for answers. In a turn of fate, she discovers an old book in her family library that transports her back in time. Instead of providing her with answers, the book pulls her into a historical love story of a lonely king and his unrequited love with his first and only love - Liza.

Torn between her own real-world push-and-pull romance with Dawson, she struggles to reconcile her feelings for him in a society that finds them an unfit couple. In a parallel timeline, Liza and Nathaniel are torn apart just as their love begins to bloom, and when they find each other again, it might be too late.

About the Author: (from Amazon)



Acacia was born and raised in a small town nestled in the gold rush mountains of California, roaming the rivers and pretending to be a fairy, whisked off to a fantasy world. Her main love as a young girl was the classics of Jane Austen and Tolkien, but soon her love for books grew into all genres. She often wrote when inspired by something she read or saw, tucking poems or fanfiction into the books she loved most. And as her library grew, so did her appreciation for all literature. But most often, she uses her writing to cope with past trauma and help others work through their own.

When she was young, she wanted to be an English teacher more than anything, but once she and her husband bought a house, her love for architecture bloomed. Only now has she found the time to pick back up her passion for writing, which shows in her work.

When Acacia first started writing her first series in 2021, she was so lost in the world she was creating that she only drank coffee and ate canned peaches for three weeks while writing all three books. Then from there, the stories wouldn’t stop flowing. She prides herself on being a diverse writer because the world is a big beautiful place with many stories we need to see and explore. Her goal is to give fun, engaging stories where you can get lost in the world and forget for a while.

The Goddesses in the Moon Series is an excellent example of all things she loves most in literature. It is classic writing with our favorite tropes while showcasing her love for other cultures and love for modern classics as well. Emma, the Mummy, and Gladiator were her most significant influences for this series, and it shows how much she wanted you to fall in love with these characters. Not only that, but she turned the book on its head with the amount of spicy she added to the series, which only increases with every book.

However, her love for books isn’t the only thing she is known for. She expressed a deep love for antiques and old homes from a young age. She takes it as a personal mission to find and fix as many old things as possible. Throughout her life, she spent many days wandering the gardens of the Blair House, which was the house used for the TV show Murder She Wrote. Having grown up partially in that house, her love for old things spilled over into her renovating career. After many years in California, she and her family moved to a small island hidden in Michigan to give their kids the small-town feel they both missed from how fast their hometown expanded. Acacia and her husband took on the magnanimous task of restoring an old Island treasure to its former glory. Her goal for the house is to find a place she can tuck away a swoon-worthy library.

Fun facts about our Author

She not only married her high school sweetheart, but they have a true best friends to lovers small-town love story, having met at the age of 6.

She has three funny and weird children who take after her unique personality, which is infectious.

She would spend all her time with her chickens and reading a book surrounded by flowers outside if she could.

She has always been the one people go to when anything needs to be done. Because a jack of all trades doesn’t even describe her well enough, she has mastered many skills ranging from baking to custom plasterwork.

One of her most fun qualities is her ability to make others feel safe and smile even in the dark times. Her house is the place people come to feel safe and loved.
