Zodiac Recommendations #5 Gemini Books

Hi everyone, and welcome to my fifth week of Zodiac Book Recommendations. Every week I’m recommending books for one of the zodiac signs, starting with Aquarius and ending with Capricorn, after chronological order. This week I have three book recommendations for Gemini.

Since we are talking about Gemini this week, I hope you’re embracing the air around you so that you can take in the element of the sign. Like every other zodiac sign, the Gemini have their strengths and weaknesses, and with these qualities in mind I have tried to find suitable book recommendations. I hope that whoever you are, whether you are a Gemini yourself or someone who knows a Gemini, you’ll enjoy these book recommendations. May at least one of these books help you channel your inner Gemini.

The books I’m recommending this week, in the name of Gemini, are the following,

The books I’ve chosen are ones that I think celebrate Gemini qualities in one way or another. I hope you’ll love these books, and maybe even find a new favorite. Check out my book recommendations for the other zodiac signs too. Next week I’m doing Cancer, see previous recommendations here.

My Latest Book Purchases

Unexpectedly, I have bought a lot of books this month. Both ebooks for my kindle and paperbacks, two I bought from Book Depository and the rest I bought in a little secondhand shop in my town. Sometimes, especially when I’m in a book slump, I tend to go on a shopping spree to help me cure that. Also book deals on Amazon are my savior, I mean 99 cents for a book? That is heaven. I thought I’d share which books I’ve bought this month, and if they look interesting you can get them too!

I can’t believe I have bought that I have bought this many books, sometimes you don’t realize it until you actually put it all together like this. Most of these were rather cheap, somewhere between a dollar or two so it looks more expensive than it was, but I’m excited to read them all nevertheless. A good book to cozy up with on a cold day is the best feeling.

What books have you bought lately? Have you read any of the books I purchased?
