Whether you're a sensitive Leo looking for their next romance novel or you're an ambitious Capricorn seeking life advice, we're sharing the best books to read for every star sign.


Read: Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin

It’s one of the publishing sensations of recent years, Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow tells the story of two people drawn together by their love of video games and a deep connection that even they can’t quite understand. If the video game trope doesn't appeal, rest assured that it goes much deeper and focuses heavily on love and the unexpected places you can find it. It will speak so clearly to the artistic, innovative, and thoughtful Aquarius star sign – people who definitely don’t judge a book by its cover!


Read: Everything I Know About Love by Dolly Alderton

A favourite of team Bed Threads ever since it was published, this memoir by Dolly Alderton is one of the best books about friendship, family, and love we’ve ever read. It couldn't be more perfect for the intuitive and sensitive Pisces zodiac sign, who are deeply empathetic and have such awareness and care for all in their life. If you haven’t yet read this memoir – what are you waiting for?


Read: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

With its focus on themes like achieving equality and overcoming oppression, Jane Eyre is a novel for people who want more from the romance genre. Basically, it's the perfect romance novel for an Aries who wants to read something that will stimulate their brain. It's a lot of fun without insulting the reader’s intelligence and will give them an insight into human nature. Ambition, confidence, and power plays are all on display novel.


Read: Heartbake by Charlotte Ree

This book has only just been released and already it’s become a bestseller. A memoir about food, relationships and self-love by Australian author Charlotte Ree, it could not be more perfect for the grounded and deeply human Taurus zodiac sign, who crave sensuality and earthiness more than anything. This is an honest and raw book that a Taurus will connect to intuitively.


Read: Romantic Comedy by Curtis Sittenfeld

You don’t have to choose between romance or comedy – or drama and comedy, or a book about the workplace or a book about relationships – in Romantic Comedy, the new novel from our of favourite authors, Curtis Sittenfeld. It's perfect for the Geminis because it means that their need to playfully bounce between obsessions, projects, and desires can be satisfied in one book. The story follows a writer at a comedy sketch show who feels a spark of attraction with the very famous celebrity host one week… And the rest is history.


Read: Normal People by Sally Rooney

This beautiful novel will always be one of our most treasured reads, and when it comes to the beautiful, warm souls of the Cancer sign, it couldn’t be a better fit. The story of Connell and Marianne as they move through high school and into university, finding each other and themselves along the way, will speak so clearly to the sensitive and nurturing Cancer signs out there, who are so full of compassion and love, like the characters in this book.


Read: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

We firmly believe that there’s a Jane Austen book for every star sign, or every occasion you might find yourself in, but if we had to limit ourselves to just one on this list, we’re going to go with Pride and Prejudice. The author’s most famous work is not only brilliantly clever and deeply funny, which a Leo’s bright mind will love, but it is also perfectly staged with dramatic flair and an eye for romance, all things that a Leo is perennially drawn to.


Read: I Have Some Questions For You by Rebecca Makkai

Many great campus novels have been written; from The Secret History by Donna Tartt to this year’s I Have Some Questions For You by Rebecca Makkai. The practical and clever Virgos will love the intricate plot of this book, which follows a podcaster who revisits the trauma of her youth when her best friend was murdered at their posh boarding school – a truly gripping read.


Read: Early Morning Riser by Katherine Heiny

Early Morning Riser is such a big, warm-hearted gem of a book. It follows the lives of a group of people in a small town as they become intertwined, relationships spark up and fall apart, and the years unfold. Basically, this is a book about life and all of its quirks and nuances, a hug of a book that will appeal to Libras who are always looking for fairness, friendliness, community and connection in all aspects of their lives.


Read: Heartburn by Nora Ephron

Before she became a director and screenwriter, without compare, Nora Ephron was an author and Heartburn, her first novel, is still highly recommended. Loosely based on her own life, it’s about a woman and her husband as they go through a bitter divorce, all while she’s pregnant with their child. It’s full of drama, with an acerbic wit that could only be Nora and is practically made for Scorpio readers, who are always looking for something that will keep them on their toes.


Read: Circe by Madeleine Miller

There are so many Greek mythological retellings in publishing right now, but if any Sagittarius out there is struggling to find which one they should read, let us recommend Circe by Madeleine Miller. For a Sagittarius, who is a curious adventurer always looking for the next project, Circe is a book that will take you to a whole other world. The story treads familiar territory for anyone who knows the Odyssey, but takes the character of Circe, a nymph and daughter of the sun god banished to an island where she encounters the hero Odysseus, on his way back from the battle of Troy. This is a classic story told in a way you haven’t heard before, and Sagittarius readers will love it.


Read: How To Do Nothing by Jenny Odell

Learning how to do nothing is something a super busy Capricorn could potentially benefit from, and reading this bestselling book of the same name by author Jenny Odell will help. This is a book for anyone who has ever felt overburdened, burnt out and overwhelmed by responsibilities – something that the hardworking and ambitious Capricorn reader might relate to – and it seeks to help reconnect people to the joys of rest, time off and the pleasure of being idle. It’s crucial, thoughtful reading in a world where we are encouraged to always be busy. Capricorns will find a lot to mull over in its pages.
