The Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas, Celaena Sardothien

I chose Clary because she is fiery, temperamental and strong-willed. I also considered Celaena because of her energetic and focused nature, as well as her competitive side.

Alright, so this isn’t exactly a book tag. I recently discovered the trend and thought I would find a few tags to participate in. After I saw a tag for birthstones, I thought about zodiac signs. I only found two previously established zodiac book tags in my quick search. I considered doing one but actually wanted to change it up a bit. I am not establishing a new book tag, but am simply making {zodiac + ya book} match ups. Based off of the description of the zodiac signs from these two websites (Horoscope Dates and What’s Your Sign), I have compiled a list of books/book characters who equal the respective traits.
