If Books Were Sharks

SHARE

Shark Week is coming to an end, but these reads will live on forever. So, we’ve compiled our top pairings of books as sharks!

 

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir – Great White Shark

Ember-Shark

Let’s face it. Both are awesome but can also rip your insides up pretty quickly.

 

 

The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe by Ally Condie – Bull Shark

Poe-Shark

DO NOT MESS WITH THEM. THEY WILL NOT LIKE IT.

 

Wicked Fox – Tiger Shark

Wicked-Shark

Tiger Sharks have developed something of a reputation for being deadly. Meet our equally deadly protagonist, Miyoung.

 

 

A River of Royal Blood – Basking Shark

River-Shark

Sixteen-year-old Eva is a princess, born with the magick of marrow and blood–a dark and terrible magick that hasn’t been seen for generations in the vibrant but fractured country of Myre. While she is fierce and may have some serious magic up her sleeve that others fear, she, like a basking shark, isn’t out to hurt anyone. They both just want to live their life WITHOUT being, you know, forced to fight to the death.

 

Steel Tide – Whitetip Reef Shark

Steel-Shark

Whitetip Reef Sharks are very social and hunt in packs. Basically, you don’t want to encounter this group in the middle of the ocean. Much like Caledonia and her crew in Steel Tide.
