Zodiac ft. Omega Characters

Zodiac Signs as Depicted by “Omega”

Have you ever wondered why you relate better to some characters over others? Us too! We’ve paired our “Omega” characters with dominating descriptions of their zodiac counterparts in an attempt to shed light on these connections.

  1. Aries- “The Ram” (March 21- April 19), Fire Sign

Alessandra

Three of the main characteristics of an Aries are insight, versatility, and creativity. Like Alessandra, they are driven by a strong will and ambition. Due to this, they are sometimes characterized as overachievers. Although these characteristics can be beneficial, if they’re not kept in check, they can lead to an Aries’ demise.

  1. Taurus- “The Bull” (April 20- May 20)

Niko

Strength, determination, and resilience are the three dominating characteristics of a Taurus. Like Niko, the Taurus can be resistant to change. Since the Taurus prefers independence, they can sometimes find themselves unhappy in relationships.

  1. Gemini- “The Twins” (May 21-June 20)

Herakles

Both versatile and intellectual, Geminis are typically level-headed. As a result of these characteristics, they are natural problem solvers. With the twins as their symbol, it’s no surprise that Geminis can contain a duality in their personalities, making them impossible to read at times. Like Herakles, Geminis are witty and enthusiastic, making them great friends to have around.

  1. Cancer- “The Crab” (June 21-July 22)

Althea-

Just as a refresher, Althea is Phoibe’s caretaker and defender from the cruel high priestess in the temple. Like Althea, Cancers are fascinated with family, ancestry, and domestic affairs. They love beginnings, which fuels their interest in history. Cancers are tender hearted and feel things deeply, sometimes to catastrophic levels.

  1. Leo- “The Lion” (July 23-August 22)

Leandra

Three of the dominating characteristics of a Leo are courage, loyalty, and confidence. Like Leandra, their desire to do good may be mistaken for bossiness, but those who know them understand their underlying generosity and loving nature. They are independent, and may be self-centered, but will always aid a friend in need.

  1. Virgo- “The Virgin” (August 23-September 22)

Lantos

have keen minds, and are delightful to chat with, often convincing others of outlandish tales with ease and charm. Virgo’s are inquisitive and are very skilled at drawing information from people. This trait also makes them naturally intuitive. Can be impatient, self-serving, short-tempered, and highly opinionated

  1. Libra- “The Scales” (September 23-October 22)

Theodosia

Superficiality, diplomacy, and a desire for peace drive the Libra. Like Theodosia, they immerse themselves harmony and beauty, but are willing to take extreme measures to maintain this peace. They are cunning, valuable allies to have on your side.

  1. Scorpio- “The Scorpion” (October 23-November 21)

Adonis

Scorpions possess an impressive focus that allows them to reach their goals. Like Adonis, they have a magnetic charm and bold personality. However, they are also secretive and strong-willed.

  1. Sagittarius- “The Centaur” (November 22-December 21)

Mismatch

Sagittarius’ have many passions, but if there energy is left unfocused, they will wear themselves out. Like Mismatch, they are results-driven and impatient. If confronted with failure they may resort to extreme methods to right the balance. Although rough around the edges, they are incredibly loyal to their friends and lovers. Despite this loyalty, they may also struggle with commitment.

  1. Capricorn- “The Goat” (December 22- January 19)

Cleon

Practicality drives the Capricorn’s needs. Born organizers, they follow meaningful, systematic methods to achieve their goals. Perhaps due to upbringing or general nature, they have trouble dealing with opposition and criticism. Like Cleon, they are secretly intuitive.

  1. Aquarius- “ The Water Bearer” (January 20-February 18)

Mrs. Nettles

The best way to describe an Aquarius is unconventional. As loyal, honest, intellectuals, they are born helpers and humanitarians. They make friends incredibly easily, and take great care of them. If left to their own methods, they fall victim to laziness.

  1. Pisces- “The Fish” (February 19- March 20)

Phoibe

Typically an open book, Pisces are quiet, good-natured, sometimes overcautious people. Like Phoibe, these characteristics leave the Pisces vulnerable. Despite their magnetism for ill circumstance, their gentility often makes them the victor of circumstance. Additionally, their passions are irrefutable, and they’re family oriented.

11333300_103183543364303_869575336_n
1) What was the first book you read that really made you love reading?
Honestly, Twilight!! I used to read when I was younger but then I stopped for a long tome. Then someone introduced me to the Twilight series and it was all up hill from there!
2) If you could be any character from any book, who would you be?
Such a tough question!! I love a strong and independent female lead. I’m currently reading the Throne of Glass series, and I absolutely love Celaena Sardothien!! But if I had to narrow it down, I would choose Tessa Gray from the Infernal Devices. Not only is she strong, smart, and independent, she has Will Herondale and James Carstairs… Need I say more?
3) A color to describe how you feel when you’re reading
Hmmm. I would probably choose blue. It’s such a peaceful amd relaxed color, and whenever I’m reading, I’m in my happy place! 🙂
4) What made you start your blog?
I was always giving my friends book recommendations!! It also got to a point where I wanted to talk about every book I read.. So I thought, why not start a blog? Then I could share my love of books with the world!
5) Any advice for aspiring book bloggers?
Just keep expressing your love for books, and post regularly. Always reach out to others, and converse with your followers 🙂 and KEEP READING!!
One thing we’ve learned from interviewing bloggers, is that passion drives success. Whether you dream of starting your own blog, company, or design, remember to live by love, and the rest will follow. Stay tuned for more insights from our favorite bloggers!

The Man, The Myth, The Legend: Benjamin of Tomes

Benjamin Alderson, commonly known by his followers as benjaminoftomes, has been influencing readers for years. His passion for books as well as his genuine reviews have helped boost him to fame. Although our interactions have been scattered, he’s never ceased to surprise me. Despite his 10.5 k followers, he’s maintained a sweet, down-to-earth presence throughout our interactions. Below, he shares some of his insights.

 

1) What was the first book you read that really made you love reading?
When I was younger I did not read very much at all. I found it hard to read during the school year so the only time I got my hands on a book was during the summer holidays. I first fell in love with reading when I read The Hunger Games during one trip to Greece. Then I got home and my friend recommended me The Soul Keepers series by G.P.Ching. That was the series that sparked my love with indie authors. After I finished that series I was introduced into the Caster Chronicle series by Kami Garcia and Margret Stohl and it was that series that really really took my mind and heart and made me a reader.
2) If you could be any character from any book, who would you be?
This is one of my favourite questions ever. I believe I would love to be a character from the Sweep series by Cate Tiernan, I would love to be a witch and have control of many different powers and magic…….. I think its time to re read this series!
3) A color to describe how you feel when you’re reading
LIGHT GREEN. This is because green is my favourite colour and when I imagine the books in my head the setting always has a green tint. Almost like a filter.
4) What made you start your blog?
The want to connect to readers as in my personal life i only knew of one and I wanted to make friends and have fun which centred around books.
5) Any advice for aspiring book bloggers?
Be yourself. I don’t like the idea of giving ‘rules or guidelines’ to new bloggers. Just be yourself, be kind and respectful to others opinions and have lots of fun.
Stay tuned for his review of  “Omega”, and  more information on life as a book blogger!

10 signs that you’re the Mismatch of your friend group

We’re back with Part Two of our Identity Series… Will you find some commonalities with Mismatch? Read more to find out!

10 Signs that you’re the Mismatch of your friend group

  1. Some might say you’re a little… intense.

Whether it be your looks, your mannerisms, or your general demeanor, your presence demands attention. People might find you intimidating at times, but your friends know that you always have their best interest in mind.

  1. When your friends are in trouble, you’re the first person they call.

Intense? Yes. Broody? Sometimes. Reliable? Always. You may not be able to fly, but your friends can always count on you to whisk them away when the going gets tough.

  1. You’re not afraid to be blunt

Sure, you don’t mind rescuing your friends every once in a while, but you know when to draw the line. You assist, not coddle. So in a way, you’re really just a multi-faceted hero. De nada.

  1. You have an unexpected side…

Sure, not all of us have the ability to transform into a mythological creature come nightfall, but what you lack in physical transformation, you make up for in personality. Am I insinuating a split personality? OF COURSE NOT. Simply put, you may come on strong, but your heart is where it’s really at.

  1. You’re old fashioned.

You know how you like things done, and that’s the traditional way. This doesn’t mean you’re unwilling to bend given the circumstances, only that you’re confident in your answers.

  1. Love…it can be complicated.

You’re either in a deeply committed relationship, or experiencing a bout of solitude. Either way, you live in extremes.

  1. You’re incredibly sarcastic

Sure, sometimes people might get offended. But who wants to be friends with people without a sense of humor anyway?

  1. Your friendships have unconventional beginnings

We’ve all been there: former nemesis turned best friend, lover turned confidante, stuffed animal turned counselor… Okay, so maybe not the latter, but you get the point. Beginnings aside, you know that it’s the actual content that matters.

  1. You’re a hardworking, but patient individual.

Lots of people say they’re results-driven, but you put in the work to make that possible.

Whether it be on a tough project at school, or a faltering relationship, you’re willing to wait for results- but not without putting some time in first.

  1. You’re stunning.

Your looks turn heads, but your personality is what keeps them around.

Every friend group needs their fighter, and that’s you! 10/10 on providing some much needed diversity.

10 signs you’re the Phoibe of your friend group

One of the most rewarding aspects of reading, is the idea of a temporary escape. Whether you’re working or in school, we all experience moments where we need a break.

In “Omega”, our heroine Alessandra learns the importance of curating her friend group. They say that the five most important people in your life can dictate who you are as an individual. That being said, we’d like to express that the best kinds of friend groups, are diverse friend groups.
