Updated: 6 hours ago

Ever wanted to choose what you might like to read next based on your favorite animal? This is the post for you! Below is a list of reading recommendations that either feature your favorite animal in the story or the animal symbolically represents the particular book’s genre or a certain character. Whether your favorite animal is a cat, a dog, a butterfly or a frog, I hope this post brings you joy and helps you find a new favorite book!

First up, any fellow cat lovers? If your favorite animal is a cat, my book recommendation for you is Coraline by Neil Gaiman!

Coraline is about a young girl who moves with her parents to a new home, the Pink Palace. While exploring, Coraline discovers a door which takes her to another world that mirrors her own, but appears to be a brighter, better version of her own world. Coraline is a thrilling, spooky story about a girl who realizes the age old mantra “be careful what you wish for”, and must use her cleverness and bravery to make her way back home. A lovely character in the story is the Cat, who can talk to Coraline in the Other World and assists her on her journey. (I also highly recommend LAIKA’s stop motion film adaptation of Coraline, which is amazing!)

If your favorite animal is a dog, my book recommendation for you is Vicious by V.E. Schwab!
