I’ve never seriously bought into the whole zodiac sign thing as true (because mine could not be more different from my real personality), but they are a fun thing to look at. Now you may be thinking–what do zodiac signs have to do with books? That’s…a very good question. For this series, I want to do a post for each sign about books that are like each of them. At least, this will hopefully be a series. Please tell me if you enjoy it, or if not, what I can change to make it more interesting!
Going in order of the dates they span, Aquarius is first. Here’s a little bit of information about the Aquarius sign, as according to Astrology Zodiac Horoscope.

I am by no means an expert, but what it sounds like to me is that the book would be:
- Plot-heavy (for the intellectual side of things)
I’m pretty excited about this, so let’s see how it goes!
Tweet Cute | Emma Lord
Tweet Cute is one of the few contemporary books that I’ve actually enjoyed! I don’t know if it’s plot-heavy, but it definitely is light-hearted and fast-paced.
Cinder | Marissa Meyer
Cinder is one of my personal favorites. It is exciting, fast-paced, and plot-heavy, though the lightheartedness comes in spurts. It isn’t as dark or heavy as some of the fantasy books I read and treads the line between gripping and cheerful.
Crazy Rich Asians | Kevin Kwan
Crazy Rich Asians leans toward the intellectual and plot-heavy side of things. It takes place among the ultra-rich, which means there is lots of politics and intrigue. It is also occasionally light-hearted and nearly always exciting.
Beach Read | Emily Henry
Beach Read was an unexpected favorite of mine. It’s a cutesy contemporary story while still being fast-paced and exciting because of other little tidbits thrown in (I won’t spoil!!).
What did you think? Should I continue with this series?
