Hi guys! I hope your weekend is great so far. ❤
So yesterday I was looking up post prompts and found this great list. A few stuck out to me, and one did in particular. It sounded really fun, so I decided to do it. I’m going to be recommending YA books to my favorite characters from YA books! 😛
I’m going to only use one character per series for right now, so I don’t use 10 from Throne of Glass or anything. But if you would want more posts like this, maybe specifically for Throne of Glass characters, or ACOTAR, or The Shadowhunter Chronicles, let me know! I would totally do it. 😉
Also, I won’t be recommending characters their own books. So I won’t tell Feyre to read ACOTAR, or anything like that.
Let’s dive in! 😀
Dimitri (Vampire Academy) → Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman
I don’t know how early on in the series it’s mentioned, but there are a few times where it’s said that Dimitri loves Western novels. I haven’t read Vengeance Road, but I’ve heard a lot of great things about it. It’s also the only YA Western I know of.
Sydney (Bloodlines) → The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
Sydney loves Greek and Roman mythology, and there are parts of the story in the second and third books where this plays a fairly big role. Whenever she might have time to read, I think she’d enjoy these because of the mythology in them. I’m also sure that the size of the books wouldn’t intimidate her.
Feyre (A Court of Thorns and Roses) → Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
I can’t be really specific on this one because doing so would be a minor spoiler, but if you’ve read ACOMAF you’ll know. Rhys teaches Feyre something, and I think after that it would be perfect for her to read Harry Potter.
(I know this one is kind of confusing!)
Inej (Six of Crows) → Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra & Dhonielle Clayton
If Inej was in our modern world, I think she’d be a dancer, or at least love watching dances. Tiny Pretty Things would be great for her, especially since it’s more vicious and suspenseful than I imagine normal ballet would be.
Aelin (Throne of Glass) → Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
I think Aelin would love historical fiction stories, and she would fall in love with Victorian England. I can totally imagine her loving Tessa because they both love reading, and trying to decide whether she liked Will or Jem more. Then she would run to Rowan after finishing Clockwork Princess, because she would be heartbroken just like the rest of us were.
Cress (The Lunar Chronicles) → Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Almost immediately after being introduced to Cress, readers find out that she’s very much a hopeless romantic. I think she would love fluff stories, and Anna and the French Kiss would be perfect for her. She would love Étienne as much as the rest of us, and then after finishing, want Thorne to take her to Paris.
Alec (The Mortal Instruments) → Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
I can just picture Alec coming back from a mission or finishing training for the day, then curling up with Oreos and this book before a date with Magnus. That is all.
Magnus (The Shadowhunter Chronicles) → A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
This isn’t technically breaking my own rule, because Magnus isn’t only in The Mortal Instruments, so really I’m not using two characters from the same series.
(Okay, yes, I’m breaking my own rule.) I can picture him in his apartment with a glass of wine, reading this series and inwardly hoping for a chapter about Rhy.
Magnus (Falling Kingdoms) → Unicorn Tracks by Julia Ember
I think Magnus would be one of those guys that loved fluff stories but wouldn’t want anyone to know. He would be reading this and then be embarrassed and defensive when Cleo finds him. Then he would tell her what it’s about, she would borrow his copy, and they would love it together.
(For the record, I’m not saying it’s bad if guys like fluff books and stories with unicorns.)
Lila (A Darker Shade of Magic) → Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Lila’s biggest goal in A Darker Shade of Magic is to have an adventure. I think she’d love high fantasy stories, especially ones with complex magic, and therefore Throne of Glass would be right up her alley. I can imagine her docking her ship for the night and curling up in her cabin to binge-read the series.
Do you agree with my choices? If not, what books would you recommend for these characters? Can you think of any good ones I didn’t include? I’d love to know! Tell me in the comments! 🙂
I’m off to prepare for my choir concert and hopefully finish reading Tiny Pretty Things. 😉 I hope you all have a fabulous day/night! ❤
Until next time…
