Zodiac was a good read! It follows some very cliche YA tropes, somewhat unsuccessfully in my opinion. Overall, however, the book was endearing and there are some gold nuggets of truth within the main character‘s narrative exposition. It‘s worth reading and I plan on finishing the series.

“Even though I‘m Guardian, I‘ve never considered myself a leader. I thought that in order to lead, you first had to have a plan. But sometimes leading is about keeping people together when there is no plan. When there‘s only the will to survive in the face of invincible evil.” ~Holy Mother Rhoma Grace

LunaAubry What a wonderful perspective on leadership! Especially during times of crisis. 4mo

I was so blindsided by all the twists and turns this book took me on - especially with what happens to Mathias in one chapter. I may or may not have screamed in frustration at that point. 😂 10/10 would read again for sure.

This is a series i started years ago and ended up bailing on in the middle of book 2. I think life just got busy and i never picked it back up, but i actually remember enjoying this book a lot. So when i found this copy i got a urge to find the rest of the series and finish the saga. 🖤☁️✨🌙 loved the characters and i thought the storyline and worlds the author created were beautiful.

i‘m a taurus btw ♉️ how about u guys 😊🌈♥️?

3⭐'s. It was okay. It started off strong but lose me along the way. A great concept but I wish it wasn't a young adult because I think this could have been better if the main character was a lot older.

Literature is one of humanity‘s greatest treasures. This book is not worthy of being referred to as “literature”. Instead, it should be referred to a “junk”. And yet, I can‘t wait to read the other books in the series!

To be quite honest, this is one of the first science fiction novels I've read in years. It was loaned to me by a friend, and I wasn't sure that I'd like it at all. After the first few chapters, I was hooked. It combines tragedy and loss with overcoming and triumph. It's an empowering book, whether you're 15 or 55. Completely recommend it. 🙌🏼

i really wanted to really like this one, but it's just a meh for me. it has a good premise, and i like that it's adventurous enough, (pseudo sci-fi-fantasy-ish)...but it just jumped into the story with very few details on the world-building, and there were several times that i had to reread pages just so i can have clearer picture of what's happening. nevertheless, i've decided to continue w/the 2nd book, as i don't like leaving stories hanging.

The idea was above unique. I will continue to be disappointed that I didn't think of such a great and different idea. The characters were intriguing. And with such description, I actually felt like I was part of their world. It has everything you want to see in a book: drama, action, intensity, romance etc. 5/5 stars!

I have less than an hour left to try to finish this book until it has to go back to the library. It's looking like I'm going to have to borrow it from my usual library when I go into work tomorrow, because I'm not even halfway through, and no matter how good it is, or how quick a read it is, I don't think even I can manage that fast. #zodiac #rominarussell

"27. Snacks." I thought about grabbing a cookbook and finding some of my fave snacks to make, but I couldn't resist the fact that my carton of Goldfish is as big as the book. (And there's a crab on the cover. Goldfish, crab, marine life...okay yeah, it was a stretch.) But Goldfish are definitely one of my fave reading snacks! #30daysofreadathon #countdownfrom30 #snacks #zodiac #rominarussell

I was with the book for a fair amount of it but it lost me near the end. The world building is amazing and I did enjoy most of it but there was a thing that happened that irritated me and felt a little lazy. I'm glad I read it but probably won't go on to the sequel. This was both a #readharder2017 #task12 fantasy book and a #LitsyAtoZ #letterL book.

I can't help it; I'm always reading about twelve books at a time because there's just SO MUCH that I want to read, and unfortunately have to spend eight hours a day at my ~real job~, so I just...read a bunch of things at once. Adding this one to the currently-reading list tonight, and looking forward to it. (Also, WHAT A PRETTY COVER.) #zodiac #rominarussell

Ashley_Nicoletto Real job problems. 🙄 I constantly think about how many books I could read a year if it was my job. 2y

Disclaimer: I'm not a science-y kind of girl, so I'm not commenting here about the science contained in the book. Maybe it's ridiculous, maybe not. It's the same formula most YA, so it's not life-changing... a teenage girl unsure of herself is thrust into a leadership position, a love triangle ensues, and a battle is fought. But, for what it is, a YA book set in a future where the galaxy is made up of the 12 zodiac signs, it's a fun, quick read.
