Zodiac Signs Book Recommendations

Zodiac signs book recs

Hello friends!

As I was thinking lately about some kind of fun post to do on the blog, my very not brilliant brain came to up with this very not creative idea WHICH IS, drum roll please, book recommendations based on the twelve zodiac signs. Now, as I’ve gotten a bit more into astrology the past few months, I know that there’s a bit more depth to all of this and the signs, their traits and their influence are more complex than just your sun sign (the one based on your day of birth, that basically everyone knows) but for the sake of keeping this post light and simple I’m going to base these recommendations on the signs’ most known attributes.

The descriptions I used are 100% mine inspired from both what is known about the signs and the people around me that I know fall under them so…eh…take them with a grain of salt. They might not fit *you* personally because, like I said, there’s more to a person than their sun sign, it’s a whole ass chart. Don’t take the books with a grain of salt though, you should definitely read those. So without further ago, here goes nothing:

Title = Goodreads page

Aries

Born natural leaders, Aries are ambitious, courageous and have a great sense of adventure. They’re hard workers, very determined but also quite impulsive. They’re also outgoing and the life of every party.

Taurus

Taurus are extremely strong but also extremely gentle. They’re resilient, passionate and follow their vision up til the very end which means that it’s hard for them to follow instructions when they don’t align with it. They are very detail oriented and know how to take care of their loved ones and make them feel loved.

  • If you Come Softly by Jacqueline Woodson – For some reason, I feel like this book and Taurus have the same energy, I’m all for the gentle and quiet strength.
  • Foolish hearts by Emma Mills – This is just a cutesy book and whenever I think cutesy I think Taurus for some reason. I also put this book here because of how friendship oriented it is.
  • The Reader by Traci Chee – If you read this book, you’ll understand why this is such a perfect match. There’s also a huge found family aspect in the second book that makes this match even better.

Gemini

Gemini are very adaptable individuals, capable of fitting in and connecting with others easily. They’re energetic, opinionated and unafraid to speak their mind, even when it might be the unpopular opinion.

Cancer

Cancers are very atune to other people’s emotions, so much so that they can get affected by them but they also have a hard time expressing their *own* feelings. They’re very caring and loyal people so once you have them and know how to keep them, they’re for life. (This has to be my favourite sign) 

Leo

As very upbeat and on the go people, Leos tend to be the center of attention, and more often than not, they like it. They’re bold and confident and never hesitate to speak out but they’re also gentle and can be quite soothing.

  • Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody – Does anyone else feel the Leo energy or is it just me? It’s mostly due to Levi, if we’re being honest.
  • The Brightsiders by Jen Wilde – This book centers the lead singer of a band which is the most attention grabbing thing in the universe.
  • Want by Cindy Pon – This book feels a lot like what a Leo would be if they were a book. Loud, proud and standing up against injustice.

Virgo

Virgos are the most organized, hardworking people you’ll ever meet. They’re also kind, generous and have a great sense of humour. They love learning new things and kinda hate when they *don’t* know things. Letting go is also not an easy feat for them to achieve.

  • You Asked for Perfect by Laura Silverman – If this isn’t the most virgo book I’ve ever read, I don’t know what is.
  • Untouchable by Talia Hibbert – Hannah, the heroine in this one is the virgo of all virgos, she likes everything to be organized how she likes it and HATES losing control over things.
  • The Epic Crush of Genie Lo – Genie Lo is the biggest virgo to ever grace this earth and no one can change my mind. She’s hustles hard, has a no bullshit tolerance policy and does not take well to things she doesn’t understand.

Libra

Libras are great at communication and like to make and keep people happy which can sometimes easily lead to them neglecting their own happiness for a bit. They’re also creative and their imagination knows no bound.

Scorpio

Scorpios stand out, they’re intense, passionate and extremely charismatic. They’re very smart and funny, their humour often of the sarcastic genre. They’re also cynical and tend to build a shell that’s hard to crack around themselves, which makes them seem cold when in reality, they care a lot.

Sagittarius

Very adept of trying and seeing new things, Sagittarius love to travel, discover new places and get out of their comfort zone, which fuels their creative juices. They’re also very honest folks, sometimes…too honest. They can be blunt and come across as selfish and insensitive.

Capricorn

Very dependable and practical, Capricorns tend to follow logic and don’t get swayed by emotions easily. Which… isn’t always a good thing, because it’s sometimes good to follow your heart (I…have first hand experience). They’re also very confident -can come off as arrogant, put together and masters at hiding their feelings, which they have a lot of.

Aquarius

These are either one of two ends of the spectrum: Shy and quiet or loud and very out there, either way, it’s a way for them to avoid expressing their feelings. Aquarians are very independent, compassionate and make for great listeners.

Pisces

Pisces are very gentle and understanding people, they don’t like conflict and do their best to avoid it. They’re very giving and willing to lend support to whoever needs it. That being said, they can be quiet naive and get taken advantage of if they’re not careful with who they trust.


That’s it until next time.

Do you think these books fit?

Recommend me books based on any of the signs!

Hope you enjoyed, write to you soon.

  1. Aries here – have only read TGW – might not fit quite so well with me personally but like you said, it’s a whole-ass chart – still a goooooooood book though. Other two are on the TBR, though. Soooooooooon.

    That being said, always excited to add new books to the TBR. (I’ll finish it eventually.)

    Thank you for posting and for the recs!

  3. What a fun post, I love it so much and your descriptions are so accurate, too. I’m a Libra and all of these books are on my TBR so I think I’m on the right path there haha 😀

  4. Omg YES for You Asked for Perfect & Genie Lo as Virgos, they totally fit the description up there??? Also your placement of Nice Try, Jane Sinner as a scorpio book is the most accurate thing I’ve /ever/ read. There’s no way Jane Sinner isn’t a Scorpio.

  5. I am a Libra, but I was lowkey taking the Capricorn recommendations too. I don’t identify with Libra that much, though I am excited to pick up all the books you mentioned, especially When The Moon Was Ours. I think I’m more of a Capricorn deep down (conspiracy theory: i’m actually a capricorn but my parents adopted me as an infant and decided a new birthday for me), and I love you mentioned Immoral Code, because I was literally just googling this book today (or should I say goodreads-ing it?)!
    I appreciate your recommendations a lot, especially because I feel like this was a very length-y post to prepare & write!

  6. I’m an Aries and I often don’t relate to any tweets, posts or anything about Aries at all. Yet, here, I read both Girls of Paper and Fire and The Gilded Wolves, and they’re both 5-star reads for me! I loved them so much ♥ They’re such good recommendations and this is a great post!

  7. Ooh I love this! I love astrology (Gemini rising, Taurus sun, Virgo moon) and have put all the books under those signs on a tbr! I don’t have any book recommendations unfortunately, however, any time I read a book, I’m always trying to figure out what everyone’s signs are, haha. Thanks for the recs!
