Listless Monday: Moon Books

Listless Monday was inspired by both Amanda at A Bookshelf Monstrosity's feature Books by Theme and Court at Once Upon a Bookshelf's Listed feature.  Be sure to check out their lists!

In celebration of the upcoming Easter holiday, I decided to do a list of books involving the moon.  How, you ask, is that a celebration of Easter?  Ah, because the date for Easter is decided by picking the first Sunday after the first full moon, after the Spring Equinox.  Follow me?  Either way, it's as good a time as any to pull out a moony list. 

Beneath a Meth Moon by Jacqueline Woodson
Blue Moon by Alyson Noel
Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson
Emily of New Moon by L.M. Montgomery
Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen
The Last Survivors series by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Liar's Moon by Elizabeth C. Bunce
The Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer
Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool
Moon Shot by Alan Shepard, Deke Slayton, and Jay Barbree
The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
Owl Moon by Jane Yolen
Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George
The Timekeeper's Moon by Joni Sensel
The Trouble with Half a Moon by Danette Vigilante
Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech
Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin

Notably, I didn't delve into the werewolf genre, because every one has a different take on whether the moon is important or not.  Any suggestions? 

If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage


  1. I'm so glad you know that's how we know when Easter is. I hate when I tell people that and they look at me like I'm full of it.

    1. Ha! They always give me a blank stare and say, "what?" It's fun knowing weird random facts :)


Love it when you comment!
