Happy Friday bookish people! I am so happy today that I am bringing you my post as part of the Blood and Moonlight Book Tour with TBR and Beyond Tours. I will be revealing my top five reasons to read Blood and Moonlight by Erin Beaty and I will be including a photo of my book look inspired by the cover. But first here is the cover and synopsis:
In this medieval YA fantasy thriller, an orphan with a secret, magical sight gets caught between a mysterious genius and the serial killer he’s hunting.
Rising above the city of Collis is the holy Sanctum. And watching over its spires is Catrin, an orphan girl with unique skills—for she alone can spot the building’s flaws in construction before they turn deadly.
But when Catrin witnesses a murderer escaping the scene of his crime, she’s pulled into the web of a dangerous man who will definitely strike again. Assigned to capture the culprit is the mysterious, brilliant, and enigmatic Simon, whose insights into the mind of a killer are frighteningly accurate.
As the grisly crimes continue, Catrin finds herself caught between murderer and detective while hiding her own secret—a supernatural sight granted by the moon, destined to make her an outcast, and the only thing that might save her and those she loves from becoming the next victims…

Top 5 reasons to read Blood and Moonlight!
- If you can’t decide between the Fantasy and Murder Mystery genres, choose this book! It is a great balance between both with its mix of magic and old school investigating of a serial killer.
- Exciting and unique magic that you get to discover alongside the main character. I personally had never read a fantasy book before with this type of magic in it.
- If you like small town settings full of secrets I would definitely say this book could be for you! For me, it made me think of one of the small towns in France.
- An intriguing main character who makes it easy for you to root for her.
- Maybe a little dash of romance…

Here is my book look!
I tried to imitate the cover of the book for this photo, it’s not perfect but I don’t think it turned out too badly. I was also wearing a pale grey top to imitate the colour of the cover background, you just can’t see it in this photo.
