Hey, mersquad coven!
I wanted to share with you the Original Book Tag that I made for the upcoming novel Star Daughter by Shveta Thakrar! I also made this tour to unofficially kick off the Hear Our Voices Book Tour for the amazing Star Daughter, so if you want to support the book but haven’t read it yet, you can totally take part in this tour! As always, the book tags I make are spoiler-free and open to anyone who wants to do a tag, so please feel free! Plus, it will give you another cool incentive to read Star Daughter besides the fact that it’s freaking amazing and totally needs to move up to the top of your TBR list, but you know. You already know that one.
Need more of a reason to get excited for Star Daughter? Watch this unboxing video of Shveta receiving her finished copies.
So even though there are 27 Nakshatras in Hindu Astrology – 28 if you count Abhijit as the above link mentions – I only picked the ones that are actively involved in Star Daughter. When you read it, you’ll see what I mean by that. But if you aren’t familiar with Nakshatra, feel free to look at the link above and do some research on your own.

I really respect Pintip Dunn, and I’m honestly so glad that I’ve had some very quick opportunities to speak with her and get to know her. I absolutely can’t even fathom being in the kind of position she has been (which I won’t talk about unless she has publicly talked about it) and just knowing what she’s done despite all of that just blow me away. I’m completely in awe of her, and she is definitely one of my role models.
Sirscha from Forest of Souls is super protective of Saengo, and Saengo is super protective of Sirscha. When you read this novel, this is what you will see between them and it was just really beautiful to see. I think I’ve had one friend like that, and it’s so rare and special that when you have it, you need to hold on to it and cherish it with all you can. I loved that dynamic between them, so I’m picking both of them for this prompt.
Liz Lighty composes her own music (just like my baby bro) and is an amazing and talented musician. I love her character so freaking much, and I feel like the musical aspect of her just completely tops it all off in her being wonderful and beautiful. I really wish there was a way to listen to her compositions and everything in real life. Someone do this? Please? Thank you so much.
I would love to see Mexico City back in the 1920s, although I guess I would have to go with a Lord of Death. Or maybe not. Do I want this Lord of Death to slowly suck out my life source until he’s at his full power? I don’t know yet! But I was really enjoying the journey that Casiopeia and Hun-Kame went on. I’m not completely finished with it yet, but I’m loving it all the same.
She may not have started off as the typical hero, at least she kept herself to behind the scenes and really did so much when it came to the whole superhero thing, Evie Tanaka is my favorite. Why? She’s freaking hilarious and I feel like she really wanted to make sure that the people of San Francisco were protected even though she doubted herself in the beginning. I loved what ended up happening with her in the end. So yeah totally read this one and yay for the latest addition to the series that came out recently!
I know so many people will say that this book is amazing and I definitely agree that it’s pretty awesome. I felt like the world building was pretty spectacular in this novel and I felt like this could have been a real world that I would have learned about in history – if you know, US schools actually did a good job at teaching history completely and not sugarcoating shit.. – but that’s a whole different point. Anyway, I feel like the world building really contributed to my enjoyment of the book as a whole, which reminds me that I need to actually write my review eventually.
