Virgo  

A Pho Love Story

Dates: August 23 - September 22
Personality traits: Humble, grounded, precise 

 

Virgos are known for being modest and practical, but there’s so much more to them than their desire for perfectionism! That's why they’ll love A Pho Love Story by Loan Le. It’s an understated, sweet plot about two high schoolers who connect when they get paired up for a school project.

Libra 

it had to be you

Scorpio

Happily Ever Afters
Dates: October 12 - November 21
Personality traits: Intuitive, devoted, empathetic   

 

For empathetic and intuitive Scorpios, we recommend Happily Ever Afters by Elise Bryant. Described as Jane the Virgin with a touch of To All the Boys I've Loved Before, the story begins when the protagonist gets into a creative writing program and pursues a real-life romance - not just the fictional ones she writes from behind her screen. Buy the book.

Sagittarius  

Verity

Dates: November 22 - December 21
Personality traits: Truthful, wise, adventurous  

Since Sagittarius signs love a thrill, pick up Verity by Collen Hoover. It’s a MAJOR page-turner that involves a writer, a manuscript, and a story that wasn't meant to be read. While this isn't a traditional beach read, we think the sound of the beach waves will balance out the scary moments! Buy the book.

Capricorn  

Take A Hint, Dani Brown

Dates: December 22 - January 19

It's Been a Pleasure Noni Blake

Dates: Jan 20 - February 18

Pisces 

This close to okay

Dates: February 19 - March 20
