Zodiac Book Challenge

I found this challenge/tag on Instagram. Enjoy.

ARIES

An adventure novel with courageous characters

Mistborn Era 2: The Wax and Wayne series by Brandon Sanderson

I like this series more than the original trilogy. It’s funnier, just a fraction less darker and has the best duo to ever exist after (or perhaps tied with) Locke Lamora and Jean Tannen.

TAURUS

The Zodiac Sign Taurus Symbol - Personality, Strengths, Weaknesses

A novel with a charming male protagonist

The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

There may come a day when I will shut my trap about how much I love Locke after-your-father Lamora. However, this is not that day.

GEMINI

The Zodiac Sign Gemini Symbol - Personality, Strengths, Weaknesses

A novel that intrigued you for its peculiarity

The Mortal Engines series by Philip Reeve

Here’s how this series was peculiar, and I’m quoting some Goodreads reviewer loosely here, ‘this series has one foot firmly planted in Middle-Grade and the other in YA”. This mixture of two different tones was strange and sometimes even off-putting. You would be laughing at the buffoonery when at the next second some person would have his throat slit. I’m sorry, … WHAT? And it’s very visual about the kills sometimes too.

CANCER

The Zodiac Sign Cancer Symbol - Personality, Strengths, Weaknesses

A protagonist too stubborn to be enjoyable

Lilah Bard from the Shades of Magic series by V.E Schwab

Lilah Bard a.k.a the-smartass-biotch-who-knows-better-than-everyone-else. ‘Not-enjoyable’ is too polite, I hate her guts.

LEO

The Zodiac Sign Leo Symbol - Personality, Strengths, Weaknesses

A book everyone likes but you don’t

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

There are a couple. I would go with A Discovery of Witches here as the most epic disappointment to ever hit me in the face.

VIRGO

The Zodiac Sign Virgo Symbol - Personality, Strengths, Weaknesses

Favorite female protagonist

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

Vasilisa Petrovna is a courageous and compassionate girl and the more you read the book the more you love her.

LIBRA

The Zodiac Sign Libra Symbol - Personality, Strengths, Weaknesses

A book with a beautiful cover

A book? A book? Gosh, there are hardly any choices. This will be difficult. How about this one?

Romanov by Nadine Brandes

This is an upcoming book. I haven’t read anything by this author but I follow her on Instagram, she takes the most amazing pictures. I am also a lover of Anastasia and I’ve read two excellent retellings so far.

SCORPIO

The Zodiac Sign Scorpio Symbol - Personality, Strengths, Weaknesses

A book that made you feel stronger

Jannat Kay Pattay by Nemrah Ahmed

Always and forever. This book is the love of my life (#3) and the waves of strength that rolled off of it and entered my heart when I read it made me more confident and sure of myself. No joke.

SAGITTARIUS

The Zodiac Sign Sagittarius Symbol - Personality, Strengths, Weaknesses

A novel that speaks a true story

I may have read a book based on a true story years ago but that is highly dubious. The closest I can come to it right now is this:

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand and others

It was hilarious. It takes some prominent historical figures and inserts absurdity and silliness into their lives.

CAPRICORN

The Zodiac Sign Capricorn Symbol - Personality, Strengths, Weaknesses

Describe yourself with the title of a book

The Hero of Ages

Only Human by Sylvain Neuvel

Image result for only human sylvain neuvel

I have some other good ones:

  • Ice
  • My Plain Jane
  • Uff Yeh Larki
  • The Hobbit
  • The Outcast

This was entirely too much fun.

AQUARIUS

The Zodiac Sign Aquarius Symbol - Personality, Strengths, Weaknesses

Recommend a novel set in the future

A Conspiracy of Stars by Olivia A. Cole

Image result for conspiracy of stars

One of those times when the book is actually as good as the cover.

PISCES

The Zodiac Sign Pisces Symbol - Personality, Strengths, Weaknesses

A book that made you daydream (in a good way)

Bruh, what? What book doesn’t make you day dream?

Howl’s Moving Castle by Dianna Wynne Jones

Image result for howl's moving castle book

Living inside this book is a party. It’s a happy, fun-filled, adventurous book that gives me the warm fuzzies.

Cheers!
