Taurus (April 20-May 20): Red, White & Royal Blue

Practical, patient Taurus, you're arguably the most stubborn of the signs. Red, White & Blue is right up your alley, and we're willing to bet you'll read it in next to no time. The book's about the first son of the U.S. and the prince of Wales, both of whom are stubborn like you. What initially starts out as a rocky friendship, soon blossoms into a romance no one saw coming.


Gemini (May 21-June 20): Again, but Better

Sweet, gentle Gemini, you're always down for an adventure and are adaptable in any situation. You'll find pieces of yourself in the main character in Again, but Better. Shane travels to London for a semester abroad in search of something more. She's faced with the struggles of going outside her normal bubble of friends and activities, making for one interesting adventure.


Cancer (June 21-July 22): Five Feet Apart

You, Cancer, are rather emotional. Any chance you get to cry and let your tears run free is therapeutic to you. We guarantee you'll be balling your eyes out when you complete Five Feet Apart. The book follows two young people, Stella and Will, who fall in love. However, due to Stella's lung condition, she can't get close to anyone for fear of infection and death. The story is sad, sweet and incredibly romantic.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Wilder Girls

Ah Leo, your warm-hearted nature tends to get you in some sticky situations. You'll totally relate to Hetty in Wilder Girls, a book about a group of people left on an island due to a nasty virus of some sort. They're told to stay inside the quarantine, but when Hetty's friend goes missing, she makes it her mission to bring her back safe and sound.


Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22): The Rest of the Story

As a Virgo, your loyal attitude has been able to give you some pretty great friendships. We think you'll enjoy The Rest of the Story, a book about a girl who doesn't know who to remain loyal to— her mom or dad's side of the family. Through self-discovery and new friendships, the answer becomes clear as to who she truly is.


Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22): On the Come Up

Libras are all about finding justice in any situation. You're known for your tenacious spirit and willingness to stand your ground, just like the main character Bri in On the Come Up. Bri is an aspiring rapper who is determined to make it big so she can take care of her family. Losing her father at a young age and having a mother that just lost her job makes her journey anything but easy.


Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Recursion

You're the bravest of the signs, Scorpio, which is your greatest strength and weakness. You're willing to risk your life for the greater good, which is why we know you'll obsess over Recursion. The story is about two people trying to solve and cure what's known as False Memory Syndrome, which implants fake memories into people's minds. This is a definite page-turner and one you won't be able to put down.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Two Can Keep a Secret

You let your curiosity get the best of you at times, Sagittarius. You're always down for a good mind-bending story, so you'll enjoy reading Two Can Keep a Secret. The plot follows a small town with big secrets including murder, mystery and so much more. Ellery, the main character, knows all about the dead homecoming queen and how her aunt went missing at the young age of 17. The story has all kinds of twists and turns you won't see coming!


Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Twice in a Blue Moon

You, Capricorn, never make the same mistake twice. You learn from your past and are oftentimes unwilling to forgive and forget. You'll relate to Tate, the main character in Twice in a Blue Moon. The story is about young love, betrayal and second chances. Tate, an actress blossoming on the Hollywood scene, needs to decide if she can forgive her first love for betraying her all those years ago.


Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Verity

Independent is the best word to describe you, Aquarius. You're all about self-growth and fending for yourself, which leads us to believe you'll totally obsess over Verity. The story follows Lowen, a writer who receives the offer of a lifetime to finish a series of books the original author can no longer complete. When she comes across the woman's autobiography hidden deep in a drawer, however, more is revealed than she could have ever expected.


Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Field Notes on Love

As a Pisces, you believe in love at first sight and live for anything even slightly romantic. You'll fall head over heels for Field Notes on Love, a story about a guy who was just dumped and needs to find someone who can use his other train ticket. The person ends up being the girl of his dreams, and with their instant attraction, it's no surprise romance is in the air.
