If You're An Aquarius, These Are The Books You Need To Read

Aquarius may seem like a water sign because the word "aqua" is in its name, but it's actually an air sign. And like gales both strong and subtle, Aquarians know where to head in life, how to get there, and how to live life exactly as they should (via The Times of India). When Aquarius gets inspired, nothing else matters. Likewise, they can't be stopped from living completely, irreverently, unabashedly themselves. This is why Aquarius' self-care routine is so important for them. If they're not taking care of themselves, they can't live their carpe diem-rooted dreams.

Th careers that Aquarius should consider and the type of person Aquarius should marry also reflect these ideals. They need to be around people and in jobs that mirror — or at least support — their sometimes self-indulgent lifestyle. The same can be said for the books in which Aquarians escape. They need stories that they can relate to if they're going to enjoy them. After all, this steadfast sign isn't known to waste its time doing something for which it has zero interest. Therefore, some books are much better suited for Aquarians than others. Let's name a few.

These books will make Aquarius think and dream

Aquarians are natural thinkers and dreamers, so many of the best book choices for them are ones that invoke thought and passion. According to Goodreads, Aquarians first need to pick up "1984" by George Orwell. This book is a classic, so many may have read it. However, if they haven't, this should be their first stop. After "1984," Aquarians should dive into "number9dream" by David Mitchell, which is another book that will challenge their notions of life itself.

Other fun books for Aquarians include "Nimona" by Noelle Stevenson and "Dumplin'" by Julie Murphy (via Epic Reads). These books remain thoughtful and dreamy while being more rooted in humanity and even fun in some ways. Likewise, Epic Reads recommends "Prisoner of Night and Fog" by Anne Blankman and "What We Saw" by Aaron Hartzler.

If you're an Aquarius and have made it through these books, there are still more for you to check out. According to Frontlist, "The Hate U Give" by Angie Thomas is required reading because it invokes the politics of present day America, in which Aquarians are naturally interested. Aquarians can also dig into "Pippi Longstocking" by Astrid Lidgren, "The Miseducation of Cameron Post" by Emily M. Danforth, and "The Testing" by Joelle Charbonneau.

Ultimately, never be afraid to dive into a book. Up to 1 million unique books are published each year, which is increasing due to digital self-publishing, according to Forbes, so there are endless opportunities to find your next favorite book.
