2. Taurus, The Woman Who Stole My Life by Marian Keyes ($9): Bull signs favor tradition and stability above all else, putting up a fight at the first signs of change, so you’ll totally relate to Stella Sweeney, who struggles to restore order to her own typically routinized life after suffering memory loss, in this poignant-yet-funny read.
3. Gemini, The Draper’s Daughterby Ellin Carsta ($9): Twins for twins! Set way back when in 1931, this upcoming (November 15) novel sees a brother/sister pair of twins at odds over family matters with puh-lenty of historical flair to boot.
4. Cancer, The Girl and the Sunbird: A Beautiful Epic Story of Love, Loss and Hope by Rebecca Stonehill ($13): For lovers of beauty, like Cancers happen to be, this poetic story of nature in a foreign setting (the plains of Nairobi) and unrequited love has it all: Just look at that dramatically telling title!
5. Leo, We Could Be Beautifulby Swan Huntley ($17): Leos love to be the center of attention, so what better novel through which to live vicariously for this outgoing bunch than one about an Upper East Side socialite with the world at her feet?

7. Libra, Fates & Furies by Lauren Groff ($9): Hopeless romantics through and through, Librans and this classic tale (out September 13) of a marriage that’s still fueled by love even after 24 years kiiiinnddd of go hand and hand. Just saying!
8. Scorpio, Foundby Emily Brett ($14): Set for an October release, this thriller/self-discovery hybrid sees the book’s main character, Natalie Ulster, described as independent and self-reliant — two traits that also apply to you, dear Scorpio readers.
