Out of nowhere, my summer TBR has become absolutely massive. I went from wanting to read just a few books to needing to read about three a week to finish everything I want to read, and that doesn’t even include all the new releases coming out over the summer. Thanks to a whole slew of book recommendations, I’m swimming in books to read and have no idea what to start next. So, of course, I turned to the stars. According to your zodiac sign, this is the next book you should read:

 

Rosie Danan

The Intimacy Experiment

Sexy, fiery Aries need just that in a book, and this is exactly their speed. Naomi’s looking to get into higher-education lecturing after starting a successful sex-positive start-up. Ethan, who just became rabbi, is tasked with attracting more millennials to his synagogue. The two team up to give a presentation on Modern Intimacy only to find they’re increasingly attracted to each other. Read this if you like witty banter, sex positivity, and lots of steam.

 

Nghi Vo

The Chosen and the Beautiful

A queer, Asian, adoptee retelling of “The Great Gatsby” is bound to knock the socks off a Taurus. Jordan is rich, educated, and gets invited to the most exclusive parties. However, as a queer, Vietnamese immigrant, she still doesn’t feel accepted. This book takes one of the most popular and well-known stories and (TBH) turns it into something way more exciting.

 

Elle Cosimano

Finlay Donovan Is Killing It: A Mystery

Finlay isn’t doing so hot. She’s a mom of two, struggling to get her next book written even though she promised her agent she'd get it done, and her life seems to be in chaos all the time. When she goes to meet her agent to talk about the plot for her book, someone mistakes her as a hit person. Finlay, who is struggling to make ends meet, accepts the offer to kill their husband, only to realize real-life crime is a little more difficult than writing it. Just like a Gemini, this story is wild, fun, and definitely interesting.

 

Dean Koontz

The Other Emily

Cancers have a strong inclination to protect people, which often draws them to horror and suspense. It’s intriguing, cool, and a little weird, which is why they’d likely find the newest novel from master-of-suspense Dean Koontz to be right up their alley. Emily vanished after her car broke down a decade ago, and it’s presumed she was murdered by a prolific serial killer in the area. Her partner David never stops grieving until he meets Maddison, who completely takes his breath away the same way Emily did. But Maddison is starting to act a little too much like Emily—and even kisses just like Emily. Could they be the same person?

 

Jason June

Jay's Gay Agenda

Leos are a little self-centered—they like to see themselves in the story, and you can definitely see a little bit of Leo in Jay. He’s the only kid who came out at his small, rural high school, so while all of his friends talk about hookups, he sits and listens, dreaming about all of his firsts and making his very own romance to-do list, which he calls his Gay Agenda. Then, his family moves to Seattle, and he’s suddenly surrounded by a whole LGBTQ+ community. Throughout the book, a little romance and a lot of fun ensue.

 

Alex Michaelides

The Maidens

"The Maidens," a much-anticipated follow-up to Alex Michaelides beloved debut “The Silent Patient,” has Virgo written all over it. It's smart, a little dark, and compelling—how else would you describe a Virgo? A student at Cambridge University who was part of a secret society called The Maidens is found murdered, and Mariana, a former student and group therapist, finds herself entrenched in the investigation. The story is filled with Greek mythology and history and will entrance even the snarkiest of Virgos.

 

Taylor Jenkins Reid

Malibu Rising

Libras who are looking for a light, summer read that's anything but boring, look ahead. “Malibu Rising” follows four famous children of a legendary rockstar in the 24 hours of their annual summer party. This story is filled with secrets, drama, and everything you love about Taylor Jenkins Reid.

 

Laura Dave

The Last Thing He Told Me

A Scorpio is looking for mystery and intrigue and perhaps a little romance, and that’s exactly what they’ll find in this book. When Hannah gets a note from her husband that just says “protect her,” she knows it’s about his 16-year-old daughter Bailey. But what she doesn’t know is that he’s about to disappear, and his boss is about to be arrested. This story is filled with secrets, family drama, and tons of suspense.

 

Zakiya Dalila Harris

The Other Black Girl: A Novel

Nella is the only Black girl at her job at a book publisher called Wagner Books, and she’s fed up. So when Hazel joins the team, she’s ecstatic—until she receives a message on her desk that says “LEAVE WAGNER. NOW.” This social commentary thriller is one of the most anticipated books of summer 2021, and you know Sagittarians already have it packed in their travel bag.

 

Christina Lauren

The Soulmate Equation

This book is set in a futuristic world where a company uses your DNA to find your soulmate (I know Capricorns are already raising their eyebrows a little). Jess, a single mom who can barely make ends meet and is sick of being alone, tries GeneticAlly and receives a rare 98 percent compatibility with the company’s founder, Dr. Pena. She’s not interested in seeking it out, but the company claims it'll pay her if she gets to know him, and she’s in no position to turn it down. What happens when a computer puts you together? Could it be right?

 

Casey Mcquiston

One Last Stop

Aquarians are fun-loving, sweet, and a little bit kooky, just like “One Last Stop.” August moved to New York not really expecting fireworks, but then she meets Jane on the train. Jane becomes her subway crush until she realizes Jane isn’t just a cool punk rock girl; she’s literally displaced in time from the ‘70s, and August has to help her.

 

Emily Austin

Everyone in This Room Will Someday Be Dead

When an anxious, 20-something-year-old lesbian woman named Gilda walks into a church for free therapy, the pastor thinks she’s interviewing for the receptionist job that just opened because the predecessor mysteriously died. Gilda becomes enamored with her death and begins impersonating her online because she’s afraid to tell the woman’s old friend that she’s passed, and it sparks questions with the police investigating her death. For the Pisces looking for something quirky, weird, and funny, this is your pick.
