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!
