garnet

JANUARY – GARNET

Associated with warding off negative forces and dark energies – Name a book with the darkest / evilest character you can think of

shadow and bone original

The Darkling in Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo is so evil because at the beginning he is perceived as a good buy helping the protagonists of the novel.

amythist

FEBRUARY – AMETHYST

Purple is associated with royalty – Name a book with regal qualities

my lady jane

Was there any doubt that I would pick this book for this prompt? In My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows, Jane is made Queen and has to marry G. This follows true events up to a point. Then history is left in the dust for some funny fiction.

aquamarine

MARCH – AQUAMARINE

Washed Out – Name a “wishy-washy” character, a character who is not strong or a follower

girl-of-fire-and-thorns

Alejandro is the king and Elisa’s husband in The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson. As such he has large boots to fill. As the novel continues it is obvious he is not up for the job and that looks are not everything.

APRIL – DIAMOND

A Diamond in the Rough – Name a book that you loved but is not well known

finding-paradise-cover

Finding Paradise by V.P. Ortiz is a novel I have recently finished and absolutely loved. The romance and family values were particularly heartwarming. This book only has 54 ratings on Goodreads and I really want to get word out about this book.

MAY – EMERALD

Said to Balance Energy – Name two characters who balance each other well

the wrath and the dawn

In The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Adhieh Sharazad and her lady’s maid, Despina are two characters that balance each other so well.

ruby

JULY – RUBY

Blood Red – Name a book that made your blood boil, one that made you angry

what-we-saw

What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler was a really good book, but the rape culture in this book made my blood boil. Like it was meant to.

peridot

AUGUST – PERIDOT

Pale Green (it pales in comparison to other gems) – Name a supporting character who you like better than the main character

passenger

While I really enjoyed Etta in Passenger by Alexandra Bracken, Nicolas’ character shone brighter for me.

sapphire

SEPTEMBER – SAPPHIRE

Blue like the ocean, which is calming – Name a book that had a calming affect on you

cinder ella

Cinder & Ella by Kelly Oram is a cute contemporary retelling of Cinderella. I really enjoyed reading this and it just took me away from the outside world.

 opal

OCTOBER – OPAL 

Iridescent – Name an iridescent book

thousand-pieces-of-you

This is solely about the cover of this book. A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray really has an iridescent cover.

topaz

NOVEMBER – TOPAZ

Associated with Resilience – Name a book with a character who rises to the top in a time of adversity

court of mist and fury

I feel like this applies to any female heroine of a fantasy novel. However, Feyre from A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas overcomes a lot of adversity to be the Lady of the Night Court and there is still more adversity to come.

blue zircon

DECEMBER – BLUE ZIRCON

Associated with Friendship – Name a book with a friendship you want to be a part of

sisterhood

I really need to re-read this series soon. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares has the best friendship ever (in my opinion) and I would love to be a part of it.
