The Zodiac Sign Book Tag

I’m steadily crawling my way through my blog-tag backlog and I landed on this gem! I was tagged in it many months ago by the lovely Madeline over at The Bookish Mutant, and as someone who doesn’t know a lot about astrology, I thought it would be fun to give it a go. You can find her brilliant take on it here. Are you a fan of astrology? Read any of these books? Let me know in the comments!


RULES:

  • Link back to the creator, Just Dreamland
  • Link back to the person who tagged you!
  • Answer all the prompts.
  • Use the original graphics and credit the creator 
  • Tag at least 5 bloggers and provide links to their blogs.

  • Don’t forget to add #ItsAZodiacThing tag.
  • You can either do the zodiac book tag /the zodiac music tag or both of them. Graphics for separate tags should be given at the end.
  • Enjoy!

The Prompts

42505366

ARIES: A wild and powerful book, compelling from start to finish. Every page intoxicated your heart with incredible imagery.

Wilder Girls by Rory Power was certainly wild enough and the power behind the description knocks you off your feet. Find my review here.

TAURUS: A heart-wrenching story of a forbidden love that could tear a family apart

Ahhhh – as much as I’m loving all these oddly specific prompts, I’m struggling for this one? I guess I’m currently listening to the audiobook of The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater and the whole kiss your true love and they will die thing seems pretty forbidden, don’t you think?

CANCER: A bittersweet book that spoke to your sensitive heart (woo my sign)

The only thing that immediately jumps to mind is The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. It’s the very definition of bittersweet.

GEMINI: A book that is cheeky, quippy, and witty 

EVERY LEIGH BARDUGO BOOK EVER *chef’s kiss*

I’ve been slowly getting everyone in my friendship group hooked on the Grishaverse, and it’s a very satisfying experience to know that you’re the reason they now love some books. Tell your friends what you’re reading! Or tell me in the comments!

LEO: A book with drama, love, fancy wear, and hope 

That pretty much sums up the Night Circus by Erin Morgernstern! Check out my review here.

VIRGO: A tender story of self-love, self-determination, self-discovery, perseverance, romance, friendship, and family

So.

Um.

The Shadowhunters universe? Maybe? Surprisingly, the more I think about it, it actually ticks all of them. What do you think?

SCORPIO: A book with a good plot twist. A book that is psychologically thrilling and emotionally chilling, and haunted you from the first page to the last. 

I finally got around to reading We Were Liars and OOOOHH THAT PLOT TWIST! I’ve been recommending it to everyone since (and I mean everyone… my English teacher said she’ll try it one day).

LIBRA: A book that has a remarkably refreshing and frank outlook on life. One of the realest books you’ve ever read.

It wasn’t my favourite but The Versions Of Us by Laura Barnett really makes you think. Find my review here.

SAGITTARIUS: An adventurous, summer read 

All the GIFs You Need From the Call Me by Your Name Trailer

Now that summer has rolled around, I will be doing the three pieces of flipping art that just encapsulate summer for me…

  • Listening to the Talking Heads
  • Watching Call Me By Your Name (The plot is a bit dodgy, but the vibe is immaculate.)
  • Doing my customary reread of Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets Of The Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz

I can’t believe we’re getting a sequel. You can find my review here.

CAPRICORN: A book that has everything to do with friendship

Floored by Sara Barnard, Holly Bourne, Tanya Byrne, Non Pratt, Melinda Salisbury, Lisa Williamson, Eleanor Wood (phew) is based on such a unique idea and really makes you think. All the characters are like your best friends. Find my review (and attempt to cross-stitch the cover) here.

PISCES: A book that bewitched and enchanted you with its lyrical words, and transmuted your imaginative mind 

I haven’t gone back in a while, but the entire of the Folk Of The Air series by Holly Black made me fall in love with fey adventures. Find my review of The Cruel Prince here.

AQUARIUS: A quirky and unique book

Probably the most out there book I’ve ever read is Pet by Awaeke Emezi. You can find my review here. It’s utterly beautiful.

Published by Hundreds&Thousands

I’m a teenager (and a Hufflepuff) from Manchester. I like oversized jumpers, music that isn't on the radio anymore and books. Pretty much any book I can get my hands on but my favourites are Young Adult, fantasy and science fiction. One day, I decided to share some of my opinions on some great - and not so great - books to people around the world. And here it is! I really enjoy it and I hope you do too. The aim is hundreds and thousands of book reviews (see what I did there?) but I’m not quite up to that. Yet.

  1. As a Scorpio, I agree wholeheartedly with We Were Liars!!! Fabulous book!
    (Because I’m picky about such things…Cancer should come after Gemini; Scorpio after Libra and Pisces after Aquarius. I do apologise. I’m always correctly this at work.

      1. Man the amount of time I listened to “Once in a Lifetime” during quarantine is frightening
        Have you listened to Love this Giant? It’s David Byrne from the Talking Heads and St. Vincent, the whole album is great
        YES 2010 vocab excused, Wilder Girls is very deserving of such praise
