Where do I begin?

Since I saw the news about another Cincamarre story: I was pumped. I love The Queen's Game, I adore it. Seeing another set of seeing eyes in a wonderful alternative monarchial Philippines, the universe rather... And that being expanded more? *bites knuckles* YES!!!!

FYI, Stealing Luna can be read alone. But it would be a fun-er experience reading in order; recuurring characters? cameos? c'mon. 👀

From the wonderful description of the palace to the littlest there is. It all shows pa

Stealing Luna checks almost all of my boxes - found family, banter, loving elders, joy and tumble sibling relationships, an intelligent heroine who knows how to kick ass and look amazing doing it, and a hero who is the perfect blend of strong and soft-squishy.

I'd sort of type Stealing Luna as a second-chance story, but happily Cora forgives Luis fairly quickly. Before y'all scream - the man has got a good grovel game going on and he works that sincere apology. And that does it for me a lot - whe

An art heist with romance?? Sign me up!!

I was so excited going into this novel mostly because with its combination of storyline and tropes it seemed as if it was written just for me. Carla de Guzman delivers a story that is sweet and so damn interesting at the same time.

We meet Cora who is out for revenge and living up to her family legacies. Her father’s involves helping those in need. Her mother’s involves art heisting. Stealing

What a great art heist! The entire plot was about stealing from the undeserving rich that take from their people and I loved every minute of it. I loved the plot twist and how smart and well-thought out Cora’s plan was.

Cora is a very independent and sassy main character. She knows how to have fun, does magic tricks, and can communicate with folding fans. She loves her people and has strong friendships with other women. In fact, Nina from The Queen’s Game plays a role in this story as well. She c

I received a free copy of this book in exchange of a honest review. Many thanks to the author!

Stealing Luna just hits the right buttons for me when it comes to reading romance books. It features a fictional monarchy near the Philippines, a plucky go-getter heroine, a sweet love interest. Plus, it features an art heist done for reasons but noble and not. As the title suggests, the book is about stealing a painting by the Filipino Master Juan Luna-¿A Do…Va la Nave? Interestingly enough, this paint

I received an e-ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review (Thanks so much Carla).

Oh my goodness! Firstly, I loved the art history aspect of this story. It was so compelling and interesting to read Cora, Mimi and Jin's discussion about painting techniques, the history behind the paintings discussed and stories about the artists' personal lives. Also gave me The Goldfinch vibes. I also loved all the Shakespeare references. I'm such a sucker for them.

The heist scenes inspired by Ocean

I was enjoying the story very much until a certain incident (in spoilers) towards the end which I can't ignore. I hated that the heroine didn't trust the hero till the very end.

"Nighttime was for laughter and sex and late-night tapas. For things that you wanted to keep secret."

Let me begin by saying my heart felt that quote above so hard! The rest of this passage also talks about lonely nights and confiding to the moon and omg, IT ME !!! I can't be considered a skillful thief like Cora (skillful, in general, is rarely an adjective used to describe me, lbh, lol) but this part really made me love the book so much more than I already did at that point!
