Hello again! This was originally going to be one post but, as it turns out, I actually have quite a few favourite Animal Crossing characters (none of which have been on my island yet, pfft!). It’ll probably be spread across about four different posts, this one obviously being one of them. I wanted to find out some basic information about them and then use these basics to find a book I think they might be interested in.
You know, if they were real and…into older books? I don’t know, this might end up being a really terrible idea but I’m running low on ideas so here we are. They will be in alphabetical order because that’s the order they appear in on my favourites list on the Animal Crossing app (insert laughing face here!)
(Oh, and a disclaimer, this isn’t meant to be taken too seriously! I’m pretty bored, as I’m sure we all are. Also, some of the books I will recommend I haven’t read so I may be going off the synopsis)
Personality traits: snooty (she loves make-up, gossiping, appears rude or arrogant, talks about herself and her own experiences a lot, and judges other villagers but will warm up to you over time) loves cherries, enjoys nature, she’s a Virgo, is strongly based off of Egyptian styles/culture
For Ankha, I wanted to recommend to her #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruse. I’ve never read it before but I think it would teach her a lot about the fashion business and help her understand other peoples’ struggles more. I’ve never read this book before but I want to. It’s about someone who used to struggle with money to someone who is now a retailer. Also, Ankha seems like someone who wouldn’t struggle to be a leader and is deffo a girl boss! I’ve been in search for her, I’d love for her to be a part of my island.
Personality traits: really into fitness, her style is a tropical theme, her goal in life is to become a pop star, she’s into makeup, often in a good mood and easy to become friends with, is often excited to see other people, hard to discourage from doing things she enjoys, enjoys reading fashion magazines, they have a short attention span, she is easily upsetted in casual conversations
I know she’s into fitness but I think she would enjoy something to get her away from that and into the tropicals like she clearly very much likes! Especially that she loves being on the island and experiencing a relaxing atmosphere. I’ve never read this book, either, but it follows a girl on a journey to find herself I believe and she connects more to herself through travelling.
Personality traits: she enjoys eating and is a competitive eater, her life goal is to become a swimmer, she’s often in a good mood and is easy to become friends with, her style is very simple but very cute, she is excited to see other people, she enjoys reading fashion magazines, a short attention span, her house is very cute and is filled with furniture from the cute collection
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han is probably one of my favourite books ever and there is no denying that it’s absolutely adorable! I think BonBon would love it because, clearly, she loves cute things! The adorable romance, friendships and family relationships in this book are bound to have her squealing with happiness (very much like it did with me, the baking bits were especially adorable)
Personality traits: he enjoys wearing suits, he likes to study before tests, he wants to become an actor, he’s polite, kind and gentlemen-like, he gets along with most people, he has a large ego, he enjoys science-fiction as his home is designed from the Astro series collection, and it suggests he also likes technology
So, obviously, I had to pick science-fiction for this character! I’m not a huge science-fiction reader so I don’t have many picks for this genre to choose from that I have actually read. I haven’t heard much about this book, before, but it sounds super interesting and I think Chadder would like it very much! It has a lot about space involved in it, which he seems to have an interest in, AND technology as they develop a whole new society on another planet.
She has more of an emo style than many of the other ACNH characters so I think she’s enjoy more gothic-style books, she is kind to others, she gets along with most people, she doesn’t like people who gossip or spread rumours, she supplies medicine to those stung by bees so she’s very helpful and friendly, she comes from a large family, she wants to be a dancer, her favourite colour is purple, she likes rock n’ roll music, she has a very sleek and dark themed home
For this one, I went with something that was perhaps quite obvious but I thought Cherry might really enjoy Edgar Allan Poe literature! I’ve never read them before but I do own a copy, and from what I know about it they have a very gothic theme/atmosphere to them and I think Cherry would really enjoy that. I’ve also read a lot by Carloz, and I think she would enjoy literally anything written by him as well.
He enjoys nature, he’s based on the Japanese culture, he’s a Libra, he wants to be an archaeologist, he enjoys history and bases his style off of history, he’s laid back and easy to get along with, he loves food and loves to relax, he likes to talk about food, comics or superheroes, his home is based off of the African Savannah, where he displays animal bones (little disturbing, Clay) and other historical artifacts
I think Girl in Reverse would be perfect for Clay! Again, I haven’t read it, as historical fiction is not my favourite genre so therefore I tend not to reach for it very often but it sounds just like Clay’s cup of tea! It involves a girl finding ancient Chinese artifacts (so very Clay!), and discovering secrets about her history and about the woman that abandoned her so she embraces her culture. Probably the most perfect pair I’ll come up with for this short series.
Cleo enjoys education, she has an interest in fashion, she’s an Aquarius, she’s good at juggling, she wants to be a dermatologist, she can be rude and arrogant and a little self-absorbed but warms up to people over time, her house in New Horizons is science-themed indicating she also has an interest in science (possibly biology, as she has similar equipment to what I used when I was studying biology
For this one, I wanted to recommend Cleo a book about the history of the human race. It features a lot of biology and scientific information. I’ve never read the book myself but, as Cleo enjoys both biology, science and education, I feel like she would really like this one and I’ve heard a lot of positive reviews on it. I think I own this, somewhere, in my very large collection of books so if I do I’ll try and read it soon to see if it really would be something Cleo would enjoy!
She enjoys nature, she’s an Aries, she’s good at mental mathematics indicating she’s academically smart, she wants to be a teacher, she has a very basic sense of style, she’s very kind and soft, she likes to wake up early and is easy to get along with, in New Horizons she has a very simple designed home, and she owns a lot of books
To me, Fauna gives off very romance vibes. I think she would really enjoy something sweet and cute and doesn’t seem the sort to be in invested in anything deeper, despite her intelligence. Fauna is so soft and sweet and I haven’t read this yet but I’ve enjoyed everything written by this author so far.
She encourages people to clean up the town so she appears to care a lot about her local environment, she’s a very happy person, she enjoys fashion and singing, she’s an Aries, she wants to be a swimmer, she has a cute sense of style, she is very excited to see other people, she’s hard to discourage from doing what she enjoys to do, she has a short attention span, her house is very nature-themed and peaceful with lots of flowers and she sleeps in a hammock
Perhaps a weird choice, but she has a short attention span so a book that’s short and aimed at children seems like a good choice anyway! Also, I haven’t read the book but I’ve seen the film and I both love the film and the message behind it. I think she’d love it, especially with the strong nature theme present throughout and it might encourage her to keep up her little activism on the islands she lives in! (Should also mention that Dr Seuss was a terrible person so watch the movie instead, although he’s dead so he can’t benefit from this anymore!)
She enjoys nature, her name references to meringues and snow, she’s an Aquarius, she wants to be a superhero, she’s very kind, she gets along with everyone, she likes to wake up early, her house is very simple and white-themed and she seems to stick with furniture from the minimalist series, and she also has a few furniture items from the princess series
I recently learnt about this book and it sounds absolutely adorable! It’s a cozy mystery book set in winter. Flurry really likes winter and she likes the snow, and the cold, so this seems ideal and it’s also adorable just like Flurry! I, too, love winter so I’ve deffo added this to my TBR! I’m trying to get through the books I already own, first, though.
So, this ends my PART ONE of this series and I really, really hoped you liked it because it took an unexpected amount of work to make! I know it’s not original, probably. I haven’t looked but I’ll be really surprised if others haven’t come up with this idea before so I’m sorry if I haven’t credited them for that. Let me know if you know anyone who came up with it first.
