tarot reading: vicious

First of all, today is Thanksgiving in the US, so happy turkey eating day to my fellow Americans! I debated not doing a post today but I have a lot of international readers, so I figured people might like to read something today on a day that will probably be quiet for most US bloggers. Anyway.

Some people were interested for me to do a tarot reading about a book I haven’t read after posting my reading of WARCROSS, so today, I’m sharing a two-card spread for VICIOUS by V. E. Schwab. I’m very embarrassed to say that I’ve never read a book by Schwab even though she’s the queen of YA and apparently fantasy in general. I recently bought ADSOM and VICIOUS because VENGEFUL just came out, so hopefully my tarot reading will be accurate.

This two-card spread answered two questions: 1) will I like this book, and 2) what will I dislike about this book?


1)  will I like this book–FOUR OF WANDS–this is a positive card that generally implies positive feelings, so drawing this card makes me think I will probably like this book.

2) what will I dislike about this book–QUEEN OF WANDS–some people think the queen of wands represents one’s gut instincts. I interpret this to mean that I will not like that my gut instincts about what is going to happen with this book will turn out to be correct. I don’t like guessing what’s going to happen and then always being right, so that may happen when I read this book.


Which Schwab book do you think I should read first? What books would you like to see me do a tarot reading for?

  1. Yay! I’m really enjoying these kind of posts, they’re great! 😀 I hope you’ll get to read one of Schwab’s books soon, I haven’t personally read that one, but everything else I’ve read from her, I loved (ADSOM, This Savage Song and The Archived series 🙂 )

    1. that’s very encouraging 🙂 a couple of my friends have read her and really like her too, so I’m hoping I’ll have a similar experience 🙂

  2. ok first, this is such a great idea, i need to see more tarot readings, please!

    also, i don’t think you need to worry much about guessing the plot of the book as you read on bc when i first read it, i literally did NOT see the plot punches coming until i was right up to it.
