Books for a Gemini

I know, I know I said I would post this during Gemini season and I was going to do that. This post was due last week but I was unable to post it since I had some other commitment come in the way. However, I am writing this post now and hopefully it’s still relevant. So without any further delays, here are the books I would recommend to all my Gemini friends. 

Sybil: The Classic True Story of a Woman Possessed by Sixteen Personalities by Flora Rheta Schreiber 

This is one of my favorite books. As a psychology major, I’m incredibly interested in disorders and Multiple Personality Disorder is one of my favorites. This story is an account of Sybil who is suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder and how she works together with her psychologist into integrating all her different personalities into one person so that she can live a normal life. 

I absolutely loved this book and I thought this would be perfect for our Gemini friends as Geminis are stereotyped as having multiple personalities, when in fact they’re just good at adapting to different circumstances. Not only does this book provide knowledge and insight into this disorder, it also makes for a captivating read. 

Twinsequences by Jennifer Foor

This is book 1 in the Twisted Twin series and follows twin sisters Ivy and Willow who are two halves of the same coin. Ivy wants what Willow has and is willing to do everything she can to make it happen, even if it means stealing her sister’s identity. While Willow trusts Ivy with all her secrets, only to realize that the person she trusted most is out to ruin her life. 

When I read this book I thought it was a standalone but now I got to know that there is a sequel which I now have to read in the near future. 

Anyways, since this story is about twins, I figured it would be perfect for a Gemini since the symbol of Gemini is the twins, and I really wanted to throw in a book with twins in this post. 

First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones

This is book 1 in the Charley Davidson series and follows our main character Charlotte Davidson who is a private investigator as well as a grim reaper. She can communicate with the dead, which is helpful in her profession as the dead can tell her who killed them and how, though it’s not always easy. Add in a boat load of humor and ghost friends along with a hot and handsome Demon and you have a roller coaster of a series. 

I chose this book to recommend to a Gemini as I loved Charlotte’s character and when reading about her character throughout the series I really felt as if she’ll make for an authentic Gemini. She’s intelligent and witty, two qualities that every Gemini has at their disposal. 

Nightrise by Anthony Horowitz 

This is book 3 in The Power of Five series and follows twin brothers Jaime and Scott Tyler as they battle evil forces who are out to destroy them, which would give them power to destroy and rule the world. When Scott gets captured by the sinister organization known as Nightrise, Jaime must do everything he can to find his brother and reunite with the others in order to fight against the Old Ones. Wandering through the streets of Reno, Nevada, it’s not going to be easy for Jaime to find his brother who is being tortured by the Old Ones. 

I love this series. Each book is a masterpiece in itself and I was really hoping to push these books in these posts. And since Jaime and Scott are twins with telepathic abilities I did not think twice of putting this book here. Gemini is an air sign, which rules the mind and what better book to read then one where the characters can really control the mind? 

Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz

This is book 1 in the series of the same name and follows Schuyler Van Alen in a world full of royalty vampires who claim themselves to be blue bloods while the humans are known as red bloods. But our main character ends up being a mixture of both blue and red bloods which causes chaos among the vampire world as they set out to destroy this enigma that is Schuyler Van Alen. 

The only reason I’m recommending this book to a Gemini is because the protagonist is a half blood and with the symbol of Gemini being the twins and often considered to be opposites, I thought it would be fitting to recommend a book with a half blood in it as Geminis also have contrasting personality traits in them. 

So these are the books I will be recommending to a Gemini. If any of you guys are a Gemini, sun, moon or rising, then let me know if you resonate with these books and what other recommendations you have. I cannot promise but I will try to get the books I’d recommend to a Cancer post during Cancer season. Wish me luck!

Books for a Taurus

I know, I know I’m a little late for this post since Gemini started already but I had to make this post as we cannot ignore our beloved Taurus and recommend some books to them. So without further ado, here are the books I would recommend a Taurus to read. 

Bared to You by Sylvia Day

This is book 1 in the Crossfire series—a fairly popular series by a fairly well known author and follows our two main characters Eva and Gideon Cross—a rich businessman with a haunted past. It doesn’t take long for the two to fall in love and realize that they’d go to to any extent for each other. 

I chose this book as a recommendation due to a Taurus’ expression of luxury. When you think of a Taurus, the idea of luxury and fine dining comes to mind and there are plenty of moments of fine dining and depictions of luxury in this book and that is why I’m recommending this book. 

This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas

Following the theme of luxury and decadence we have our second recommendation. This Man is book 1 in the series by the same name and follows Ava and Jesse Ward as they navigate their feelings and desires for one another while Ava tries to make sure she doesn’t completely lose her individuality to Jesse. 

Luxury and decadence is one of the core themes of this series along with the heated and passionate romance between Ava and Jesse, so I thought it would be perfect for a Taurus. I, for one, really enjoyed this series and since I’m a Taurus rising, I did enjoy the wealth and decadent moments in this book series. 

Debt Inheritance by Pepper Winters

Okay, the only reason I put this book in this recommendations post is because this book has diamonds. Lots and lots of diamonds. This is book 1 in the Indebted series by Pepper Winters and follows Jethro Hawk and Nila Weaver who are bound to hate each other due to their bloodlines. Nila is supposed to be nothing but a debt to fulfill for Jethro Hawk, but Jethro never expected to fall for Nila. And so begins a catastrophic storm of family debt and romance that really makes this series a rollercoaster ride, with a lot, and I mean, a lot of diamonds. 

Diamonds are a symbol of wealth and luxury and that is what makes a Taurus so special. They’re not afraid to indulge and splurge, and this book really is an indulgence. 

The Merlot Murders by Ellen Crosby

This is book 1 in the Wine Country Mysteries and follows Lucie Montgomery who is forced to go back to her country home due to the death of her father, giving her the perfect excuse to get away from her ex boyfriend and focus on herself. However, when she gets there she realizes that her father was murdered rather than dying a natural death and she decides to investigate his murder, eventually leading to the killer. 

When talking about fine dining and luxury, this book is surrounded by vineyard and wine. I especially loved the information sprinkled between pages regarding the process of making wine and let’s not ignore the different kinds of wine presented in this book. That is why I think this book would be exciting for a Taurus. 

Champagne Showers by Adler

Since we’re focusing on wine, champagne is one of the high quality wine and people often drink it in times of celebration and parties which is something our Taurus signs excel at, and that this why we have this book on this list. 

This is book 1 in the Glass Towers series and follows Danielle and Harrison as their relationship blossoms despite the fact that Danielle does not wish to be in a relationship due to getting out of a terrible one, but secretly wishes for a fairytale romance, while Harrison does not care and wants Danielle to be his. But all that glitters is not gold, and Danielle soon discovers that despite the wealth and power that Harrison possesses, their relationship would require much more than whispered promises and heated kisses in order to be stable. 

Champagne, wealth and power, what more does a Taurus want? This book contains all that and much more, so I think this book is a good fit for this list. 

So there we have it. These are my recommendations for the sign of Taurus. Do you agree with my recommendations? Is there any book you wished was on this list? Have you read any of the books mentioned here? Let me know in the comments and I’ll try my best to post the recommendations for Gemini before the season is over.
