Hi guys! Unfortunately, the post I’m putting up today is not the post I had planned for. I was scheduled to put up a fun discussion post about some popular YA characters and their Zodiac houses yesterday. But due to a particularly evil stroke of misfortune, WordPress completely freaked out on me and my blog shut down. I obviously was able to get it running again, but my entire post was deleted along with my July Wrap-Up. I did think about attempting to recreate my original Zodiac post, but it took me at least 4 hours of laborious researching and formatting and I just can’t bring myself to do it all again. So instead I’m doing just a simple spotlight post with the giveaway at the end! If you guys wanna comment some of your favorite characters and what you think their Zodiac houses would be, that would honestly make my day! I will share with you my favorite character ever that I am 100% confident of what his house is:
KAZ BREKKER – HOUSE TAURUS ♉
Life Pursuit: Emotional & financial security
Description: Cool, detached, obstinate, reserved; has a love of luxury; manages to stay discreetly apart from a crowd; has feelings that run deeper than anyone around them would guess; sensual and devoted.
Title: Wandering Star
Author: Romina Garber
Series: Zodiac series #2
Genre: YA, sci-fi, fantasy
Synopsis: A breathtaking sci-fi space saga inspired by astrology that will stun fans of the Illuminae Files and Starbound series.
Orphaned, disgraced, and stripped of her title, Rho is ready to live life quietly, as an aid worker in the Cancrian refugee camp on House Capricorn.
But news has spread that the Marad–an unbalanced terrorist group determined to overturn harmony in the Galaxy–could strike any House at any moment.
Then, unwelcome nightmare that he is, Ochus appears to Rho, bearing a cryptic message that leaves her with no choice but to fight.
Now Rho must embark on a high-stakes journey through an all-new set of Houses, where she discovers that there’s much more to her Galaxy–and to herself–than she could have ever imagined.
