Moon Star Reviews: The Savior’s Champion

Minna-san, konnichi wa! 

Welcome to my first book review ever on this site. Today, I will be doing a review on The Savior’s Champion by Jenna Moreci.

Disclaimer: All books on Moon Star Reviews are purchased by me and reviews are given at my own discretion. Any links that I provide on Moon Star Reviews are not affiliate links. However, if this changes, then I will update this disclaimer. Also, note that I will do my best to keep my reviews as spoiler-free as possible.

Lastly, I had originally planned to release this post on Monday like I said I would, but I think that my nerves of publishing my first-ever book review post kept me from posting it during that time.

So I decided to post it on Thursday since I wasn’t expecting to do so, and it definitely helped to calm my nerves when I am not thinking too intently on when I plan to post something and just do it, though I hope to keep to a consistent posting schedule. It’s just my mental health has been a b*tch lately, which can make it harder to post on some posting days, but hopefully I’ll get it together and post consistently.

Now on to my first Moon Star Review. Ikou!

What are the Different Types of POV for Novels?

Minna-san, konnichi wa! 

In this post, I want to talk to you about the varying types of POVs that you should consider when deciding on one for your novel.

You may find that you have a particular POV that you’re more drawn to or you may need to experiment with different types of POVs before you find one right for you and your book. Or you may enjoy writing in multiple POVs.

Regardless of which POV you decide to choose for yourself, I hope this post helps you to think of what to consider when selecting your POVs.

With that being said, let’s move on to today’s post. Ikou! (Let’s go!)

Do You Want to Read Some Original Poetry?

Minna-san, konnichi wa! 

In today’s post, I am going to keep this short.

Today, I’ll give you a taste of my writing and share two poems that I have written four years ago in my creative writing class.

But be warned, I am not a poet, I know very little about poetry, poetry isn’t really my forte, and the poems are raw and unedited.

With that being said, I did enjoy writing some poetry and am happy with what I came up with. The poetry written were based on some class exercises, which I will discuss more below.

Also, psssttt…next week’s post will be a follow-up to last week’s posts on my WIPs (hint, hint).

What are My Current Book Projects and Goals?

Minna-san, konnichi wa! 

In this post, I want to get a little personal and discuss my own WIPs. Some are what I am currently working on at the moment, and others are on the backburner while I work on my current book projects.

I’m also getting my main book project ready and in preparation for Camp NaNoWriMo, which is coming up in April. And I am working to finish the bulk of my research just to get a general feel for the location and time period that my novel is set in so that I can write about it with ease. However, I do plan on leaving notes or questions while writing and I will research them along the way.

I am also going through my character profiles and plot outline to make sure that everything makes sense, there are no inconsistencies, and there are as few plot holes as possible. I’m aiming for zero plot holes here, so we’ll see how that works out — the benefits of editing.

Now, like some writers — not all, I don’t always feel comfortable discussing my work. But I am trying to push myself out of my comfort zone, lest it would render my author platform useless if I choose to remain in comfortable silence over my WIPs.

So with that being said, let’s move on to today’s post.

How to Cope with Assumptions and Criticism

Minna-san, konnichi wa! 

Ok, so for this post I’m going to keep this brief. In my last post, I mentioned some of the assumptions that I got not necessarily from my goal of wanting to be an author, but mainly from my goal of wanting to be an English major. And it honestly baffles me how some people can be so narrowly focused on the prospects of English majors.

Now as a writer, I know that anyone can become a writer. No college degree necessary. No English major required.

However, I decided to pursue an English degree and have received an A.A. degree in English last Spring. I have decided to pursue a B.A. in the future, but am focusing right now on the pursuit of my writing endeavors.

I’ve even considered obtaining my Master’s so that I can teach English at a college level. But I’m not 100% sure if I do want to become an English professor as that would be my secondary goal whereas my primary goal is to become a self-published author.

However, I have considered teaching English in the past. Now, how has that consideration even crossed my mind? Well…it all started with a question.

It was a very common, albeit annoying question that I have received during my college years and it made me realize the somewhat negative, narrow-minded, and very limiting stigma revolved around the English major. Read on for more!
