Finding a new book to read can always be a challenge so why not let your zodiac sign do the picking? Keep reading to learn what books you should read based on your zodiac!
Capricorn is the first (and also the last) sign of the zodiac so if your birthday falls between December 22nd and January 19th congratulations, you’re a Capricorn! Capricorns tend to be really great at overcoming specific obstacles, but they can also sometimes be misread as cold since they are so focused on reaching their goals.
If you’re trying to figure out what books you should read based on your zodiac, look for novels that are all about attaining a specific goal, but with an emotional twist, like mystery novels. One great example for Capricorns is John Green’s Turtles All The Way Down.
You’re lucky enough to be an Aquarius if your birthday falls between January 20th and February 18th. Aquarius’ are often rebels who dislike authority figures and anything mainstream. While on the crusade to reject anything conventional be sure to make time for friends and family.
In keeping with the theme of nonconformity, Aquarius’ should keep an eye out for novels about fighting the power, such as dystopian novels. Check out Swati Teerdhala’s The Tiger At Midnight.
A Pisces is anyone born between February 19th and March 20th. Pisces’ are extremely emotional and compassionate people who can sometimes get caught up in the feels. For all the Pisces out there, make sure you have a way to stay grounded when dealing with all the emotions.
Because Pisces are always in touch with their emotional side, look for books that reflect that, like novels about personal growth. If you’re looking for books to read based on your zodiac try Kathleen Glasgow’s Girl in Pieces.
If you were born between March 21st and April 19th, then you are an Aries! Odds are that as an Aries you are a bold and ambitious person. This lends yourself to leadership positions but can also mean that when things take time and detail you can get a little frustrated.
A bold and ambitious person needs a bold book. Stay on the lookout for novels that aren’t afraid to stretch some limits, like fantasy novels. Douglas Adam’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is a great place to start.
A Taurus is born between April 20th and May 20th. One of the key personality traits of a Taurus is a relaxing and calm demeanour. While staying calm is important, be sure you know when to buckle down and start taking things seriously.
When looking for books to read based on your zodiac, Taurus’ have a choice between relaxing romantic novels and novels of inner growth. If you’re leaning towards the romantic side, try Jenn Bennett’s Serious Moonlight.
If you’re a Gemini (like me!) your birthday falls between May 21st and June 20th. Of course, the obvious reading of a Gemini involves duality and even backstabbing on occasion but in reality, Geminis are driven, always focused on getting things done. While efficiency can be great, Geminis have to make sure they schedule in some time for themselves.
While taking your downtime, look for books that whisk you away into whatever worlds interest you. Most of the time, Geminis enjoy realistic fiction because they are plausible and always have a happy ending. Laura Stevens’s The Exact Opposite of Okay fits the bill.
Next up on the list is those born between June 21st and July 22nd, A.K.A. Cancers. Cancers know how to maintain the balance between tangible and intangible. They are both cold and compassionate, though it isn’t always obvious.
In keeping with natural duality of Cancers, look for books that blend real world with fantasy as seamlessly as possible. Christine Lynn Herman’s The Devouring Gray fits the bill.
A Leo is born between July 23rd and August 22nd. Leos are highly passionate creatures who enjoy attention and the spotlight but are also natural leaders. Despite these talents, Leos can also be hubristic, so make sure you have someone around to help you keep your head clear.
In keeping with the passion that Leos exude, romance novels are the way to go. Look out for S.K. Ali’s Love From A to Z.
Virgos are born between August 23rd and September 22nd. Virgos are highly practical and are constantly honing their skills. While these qualities lend themselves to the intelligent creatures that Virgos are, they have to be careful they don’t forget that imperfections are okay.
An intelligent person requires a novel that is equally intelligent. Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons will keep you thinking all the way until the end.
If you were born between September 23rd and October 22nd then congrats, you’re a Libra! You are most likely leading a balanced lifestyle between work and play. As such, Libra’s are also relationship-oriented people. Just remember the only person you have to keep happy is yourself!
Novels that feature both relationships and moments of personal growth will definitely strike a chord with Libras. Check out Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner.
Scorpios are people who are born between October 23rd and November 21st. Scorpios are the very definition of go-getters. They know what they want and aren’t afraid to go for it. Just be sure you aren’t stepping on any toes in the process!
The driven attitude of a Scorpio makes them suited to dystopian novels where the characters are just as driven as they are. Emily A. Duncan’s Wicked Saints reflects this personality trait well.
Last but not least is Sagittarius, those who are born between November 22nd and December 21st. A Sagittarius is often known to be a traveller, going to the ends of the Earth to learn about new places and cuisines.
Look for novels with a multicultural aspect to it, like Nicola Yoon’s The Sun Is Also A Star.
