Has a book ever made you want to take up a particular skill

Has a book ever made you want to take up a particular skill or hobby? (And if not, what are some of your hobbies anyway? Haha) I love creating beautiful things. I’m not a master of any of my hobbies (I like to embroider, sew, and bake best of all) but it’s still very fun for me. When I read “Woven in Moonlight” I spent A LOT of time on Pinterest looking at woven tapestries and envisioning myself creating those masterpieces. 😂 😍 . I read an ARC of “Woven in Moonlight” a couple months ago and was recently gifted this finished copy from the @pagestreetkids . (It releases on the 7th) For me, I thought the first 40 pages or so were a little boring before picking up in a big way that left my vengeful heart so satisfied. haha. So I’d say, if you’re reading this and feeling the same way, push through! I loved the magic system of this story (reading about Ximena weaving tapestries from thread she made of moonlight was beautiful), SUPER loved all the food descriptions (have something good to eat on hand, you’ll want it), and really enjoyed the way this story and the characters evolved. Not to mention the slow burn romance was done at the perfect pace for me. . While some of this story was predictable, I was pleasantly surprised at how this story was tied up in the end and appreciated the more realistic route. This story mirrors Bolivian politics and history, of which I know nothing about. I’ve spent some time looking these things up and appreciate the entry point this story gave me. . I’ll leave the full synopsis in the comments, but this is one that I enjoyed a lot and definitely recommend for people like me who love magic, a good food description, slow burn romance, and stories that are tied to real world history. . #woveninmoonlight #isabelibanez #bookreview #weaving #handwoven #bookaesthetic #bibliophile #amreading #readersofinsta #lovetoread #booklover
