Hello everyone! So, one of my favourite shows right now is The Umbrella Academy on Netflix *insert an infinite amount of heart eyes* It just came out last week and I immediately fell in love with it, even though I had no idea what it was about lol Literally, it just popped up on my Netflix and, without even reading the description, I started watching and WOW was that such a good decision! It’s amazing and so much of everything I love in one place and also exactly what I needed to watch…..you definitely should watch it! Especially since I really want a season 2 hahaha
Anyways, in the show, the main premise is that there are 7 kids who were adopted by some eccentric guy and 6 of them are extraordinary with a power each. And, in watching the show, one of my favourite things was to see who I’m most like (I still don’t know lol) But, from that, I came up with the question: what books would each of the Umbrella Academy kids be most interested in/their personalities most suit? Thus, this post was created: pick a member of The Umbrella Academy and you’ll find 3 books that I think most fit them and would recommend to them and you! Hope you enjoy….
- Illuminae* by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
- Girls Can’t Hit* by T.S Easton
- Renegades* by Marissa Meyer
Number 2 (aka Diego) – throughout the entire show, we see Diego as this knife-throwing vigilante who works both alongside and ahead of the police force which can put him in some tricky positions.
- Royce Rolls* by Margaret Stohl (PS. the hardcover is only $2.99)
- Unrivaled* by Alyson Noel (PS. it’s $2.99 on Kindle)
- Daughter of the Pirate King* by Tessa Levenseller (PS. the hardcover is only $5.99)
Number 4 (aka Klaus) – from the start of the show, we know that Klaus is pretty weird, a drug addict, and can talk/see the dead. He’s also tied with Five for my favourite character lol
- City of Ghosts* by Victoria Schwab
- The Body Finder* by Kimberly Derting
- The Name of the Star* by Maureen Johnson
Number 5 (aka Five) – Five can jump time and space which got him at the forefront of the apocalypse. It’s also got him ‘super old’ and jaded.
- Wool* by Hugh Howey
- Into The Dim* by Janet B Taylor (PS. it’s only $2.99 on Kindle)
- Red Rising* by Pierce Brown
- The Bone Witch* by Rin Chupeco
- Sweet Venom* by Tera Lynn Childs (PS. the paperback is only $5.99)
- Daughter of Smoke & Bone* by Laini Taylor
- Iron Cast* by Destiny Soria
- This Savage Song* by Victoria Schwab (PS. it’s $1.99 on Kindle)
