Book Recommendations for Spring Zodiac Signs

Aries – The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang

Book Recommendations for Aries Zodiac Sign

I think the protagonist, Rin, has all the characteristics of the Aries sign, the good and the bad. She’s determined to the point of stubborness and charges headlong into situations. This is an amazingly dark story that you will keep thinking about long after you finish it!

Taurus – Circe by Madeline Miller

Fantasy Recommendation for Taurus

This is a recent favourite but I;m ure the leisurely, beautiful writing will appeal to the Taurus sign. I think Circe shares many traits with this sign, mainly to be left alone by the Olympians and mankind. This is a quiet sort of book with a gorgeous character study rather than being plot-heavy.

Gemini –The Black Tides of Heaven by J. Y. Yang

Fantasy Recommendation for Gemini

I couldn’t resist picking a book featuring twins for this zodiac sign! This book is mesmerising and captivating, but most importantly, quite short. I think it is the perfect recommendation for the sign notorious for their short attention spans.

Book Recommendations for Summer Zodiac Signs

Cancer – Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa

Book Recommendations for Cancer Zodiac Sign

This sign is known for being intuitive and mystical, which accurately sums up Yumeko, the protagonist. This story takes you on an emotional rollercoaster that every Cancerian will no doubt love! This is a completed trilogy, so it can be easily binge-read over a cosy weekend.

Leo – Jade City by Fonda Lee

Fantasy Recommendation for Leo

After reading about the characteristics of Leo, my mind immediately goes to Hilo. His bold character leaps off the page and nothing he does is understated. This book is incredibly clever and the passionate Leo will certainly every moment of it.

Virgo – Descendant of the Crane by Joan He

Fantasy Recommendation for Virgo

Virgo is known for being hard-working, diligent and systematic and Hesina, the main character, is very much like that. Her obsession with her father’s death takes her on a journey she was never prepared for. This book is full of plot twists that will be highly appeal to the Virgo’s intellect.

Book Recommendations for Autumn Zodiac Signs

Libra – Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix by Julie C. Dao

Book Recommendations for Libra Zodiac Sign

This sign is widely known for being balanced and striving for equality in all aspects of life. I think the character of Jade, the principal character in Kingdom, very much has this kind of personality. This book is all about setting a grave injustice right, which Libras will definitely adore.

Scorpio – The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

Fantasy Recommendation for Scorpio

Scorpios are always one step ahead in the game and Tea is someone who isn’t afraid to get what she wants. There are several parallels one can draw with her personality and that of the Scorpio. However, I don’t want to give much away because Scorpios will relish peeling back the layers of this story and devour it.

Sagittarius – The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi

Fantasy Recommendation for Sagittarius

Sagittarius is always off seeking the next quest or adventure, which makes this book a very good choice for them. One of my personal favourites, it has a well-rounded cast of characters and wonderful intellectual depth. It will take you on a thrilling journey that will satisfy the restless appetite of the Sagittarius.

Book Recommendations for the Winter Zodiac

Capricorn – The City of Brass by S. A. Chakraborty

Book Recommendations for Capricorn Zodiac Sign

Nahri, the female lead in this epic saga of a book, possesses the characteristic unwavering focus of the Capricorn sign in spades. This is a sprawling story that takes its time to build but the payoff is worth the effort. I think a Capricorn will be delighted to conquer this mountain of a book in their free time.

Aquarius – The Tiger at Midnight by Swati Teerdhala

Fantasy Recommendation for Aquarius

While Kunal and Esha, the main pair in this book, are very different people, they both are driven by the need to help those around them. Esha is a notorious rebel who crosses paths with Kunal, the dutiful soldier, during an assassination attempt. The story launches into a high-stakes cat-and-mouse game after that, which will surely intrigue the Aquarian mind.

Pisces – The Serpent’s Secret by Sayantani DasGupta

Fantasy Recommendation for Pisces

Pisces is said to be the most imaginative sign and this book is guaranteed to capture their interest. Kiranamala is no normal school-going girl and, in fact, spends her time between our dimension and the Kingdom Beyond. This highly entertaining story will provide Pisces the perfect escape away from the grim reality.
