Which Book You Should Read Next, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

What book to read next zodiac sign

What book do you like to read? Some zodiac signs are naturally drawn to reading, and they even read books about astrology or any topic under the sun. To these horoscope signs, reading is an adventure.

If you want to fall in love but aren't ready to make a commitment, you can safely explore all your heart can handle in a romance novel. If you love a good scare, a horror novel is just a library card away. You can read a book again and again and see something you never saw before. 

Selecting a book has a lot to do with your personality. Like zodiac signs, each person has their own taste and interests in reading material. A Scorpio may like a mystery since the right author will help to reveal parts of themselves while reading a plot. A Libra may love a good chic lit book because it reminds her of her friendships and the people she loves.

If you love to read and love astrology, you'll appreciate how books allow us to escape from reality and get lost in someone else’s story. It’s no wonder a good book can be addicting!

Sometimes all you need is to spend an entire day in your favorite chair by the window snuggled up in a warm, fuzzy blanket, maybe a bowl of fruit in hand, with a book good enough to force you to read it all at once. Set yourself free from whatever you’re worried about at work, right? Maybe fall asleep during chapter 8 and wake up from your surprise nap refreshed and ready to continue reading into the evening.

I don’t know about you but that sounds like the perfect Sunday for me, after brunch, obviously. But sometimes it’s difficult to find the right book to read, am I right? Sure, you can ask around on Facebook, but I swear the only people who post a book on your status are those you hardly talk to so you don’t exactly trust their opinions.

When your best friend gives you a book recommendation she literally hands you the book so you’ve read them already and need some new input. That’s where I come in. Well, mostly your zodiac sign, but I’m here to help.

Each zodiac sign has specific characteristics that make you who you are. Your sign also determines your interests, dislikes, and more so I’ve chosen a great book to read for every zodiac sign based on these characteristics. 

If you’re looking for the next good book to obsess over, check your zodiac sign and look no further — I’ve found the perfect book for you based on astrology. Here’s the book you should pick up next based on your astrological zodiac sign!
