Wrap-up post for #ReadYourSign #Scorpio ♏️

I didn‘t try to fit my books to the prompts, I just checked the prompts as I finished books throughout the month. In total, I read 6.5 books (I had a lot going on personally this month that cut into my reading time), and hit 10/15 prompts, so not too bad in all!

Thanks for hosting @Clwojick !

Clwojick You did fantastic! Thanks so much for joining us! ❤️ 2y

Good thing there are two more days left in June because I *just* updated my monthly goal! 😉 I'm working on the #readyoursign challenge and my goal was 4 books.

Leftover from May = Dinotopia
Emotional character = Wrinkle in Time
Gem = Ruby
Planet = Moonshot
Love Match (Scorpio) = Jhereg

Since I'm the #cancer and my s.o. is a #scorpio, I pestered him to choose my last book. Welcome aboard, Jhereg! 🐲 You made the deadline.

cozypunk @Clwojick @Meaw_catlady Oh my gosh! I just realized one extra #cancer book inadvertantly snuck in the month. ♋ 2y
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm I love Dinotopia. When I stumbled across it in the library as a kid, I truly believed I had found some secret journal about a dino/human cohabitation. 😅🤣 I became obsessed! 2y
Clwojick Yeah! You‘ve crushed it! Good luck with your last book. Hopefully you enjoy it! 💞 2y

My 6th read for #ReadYourSign #Scorpio
🦂 Book by a Scorpio author
🦂 Water heavily mentioned in the book

I found myself getting quite into this book as it went along. I wish there was a bit more at the end about what happened after the races, like how the island reacted to the result and if Holly‘s prediction came true (though with Dove and Corr). I loved the imagery and longing for the sea in the book, it makes me want to visit the ocean. 7/10

CrowCAH I LOVED this book; so vivid, lives in my memory! 🥰 2y

Due to traveling, I have been a bit behind on the #ReadYourSign event, but I am home now and getting back into my normal routine. This is my most anticipated read for this month. It should fit a couple of prompts for #Scorpio. I don‘t have a specific #TBR for this challenge, so I am going to wing it and just try to pick books that will fit for the various prompts.

Clwojick I‘ve been winging it too, and it‘s been going pretty well so far! The only one that I really had to look into was a book published the year I was born. 2y

Another creepy house thriller. Although I truly enjoyed this one, I felt like it wasn‘t quite as good as Lock Every Door. 4.5🌟 This one knocks off two prompts for #ReadYourSign

🦁#1: Published between Jul 23-Aug 22 (Aug 6,2019)

🦂#15: a book with the ruling number 8 in the published date (06/08/2019)

After an unexpected nap last night, I ended up wide awake all night. But during that time I thoroughly enjoyed the tagged audiobook! This one checked off a few more #ReadYourSign prompts.

🦂#1 a book published between Oct 23rd to Nov 21st

🦂#9 book with a character that is seductive, passionate or independent. Chloe is trying to be more independent, which she meets the very passionate Red

🦁#15 ruling number 5 in the date published (05.11.19)

Clwojick 🦁#11 Fill a Libra prompt (page count has a 7 in it - 373) #Scorpio #Leo 2y

Another childhood gem that was fun to reread. I didn‘t remember much about this one, and would love a reread of the full series one day! This one helped to check off #Scorpio prompt #14 as the 8th book in a series. 🦂 #ReadYourSign @Meaw_catlady

Meaw_catlady Ooh that one is such a good one ! 🖤 2y

🦂#13 a book I thought was outstanding

🦂#15 ruling number 8 in total page count (384)

🦁#4 a book that heavily mentions fire.

I‘m all kinds of excited to be doing the #readyoursign challenge in June! I‘ve got all my Leo prompts picked out (one of which is the tagged book). Any other Leos out there? (Thanks to @Clwojick and @Meaw_catlady for hosting this and making these gorgeous images!)

Clwojick My rising sign is Leo, so I‘ll be attempting those prompts alongside #Scorpio. 🦁🦂 I was considering Little and Lion as well! 2y
UnRuLee i tried to pick a combination of books already on my TBR that fit prompts and books that I found purely by searching for prompt requirements. A few of these are books I‘ve been meaning to reread, too. And this is the rough order I‘m planning to go in—I may or may not get through all of them, though! (List in following comment) 2y
UnRuLee A book from the Libra list: The Red Threads of Fortune, published Sept 26th.
A book published in my birth year: Peace is Every Step. A book that was published between July 23rd and August 22nd: The Descent of Monsters. A book written by a Leo author: Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude. A book with a character that is proud, bold or ambitious: The Ascent to Godhood. The fifth book in a series: Artemis Fowl 5: The Lost Colony.
