Here is a look at Classics you should read this summer, based on your zodiac sign.
02/13Aquarius: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
You live in a world of pure imagination and see the world as a place of endless possibilities. This is why ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ by Roald Dahl is the book for you. Its fantastical plot will help you dive deeper into your own imagination.
03/13Aries: Lord of the Flies
You are full of energy and one of the most active zodiac signs. You’re always trying to accomplish as much as you can. Thus, ‘Lord of the Flies’ by William Golding would be the perfect novel for you.
04/13Cancer: The Turn of the Screw
Cancer focuses deeply on family and is very protective of relationships. ‘The Turn of the Screw’ by Henry James is perfect for them. In the book, a governess arrives to take care of two young children and remains solid in her attachment to and protection of them.
05/13Capricorn: Great Expectations
Capricorn is the most serious and stoic of all the zodiac signs. They value success, so a rags-to-riches kind of story like ‘Great Expectations’ by Charles Dickens is best for them. It sees a boy named Pip rising through the ranks of society while maliciously manipulated by Miss Havisham.
06/13Gemini: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Being a Gemini, there are two very distinct sides to your personality. You can be outgoing one day and the next day you want to be alone. You should read ‘The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson’. It explores the dark life of Dr. Jekyll and his alter ego, Mr. Hyde.
07/13Leo: The Picture of Dorian Gray
You have no problem being the center of attention. You are a confident person, much like Dorian Gray in ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ by Oscar Wilde. His story is a bit dark but worth the read for any Leo out there.
08/13Libra: Pride and Prejudice
Being a Libra, you are ruled by love. Thus, ‘Pride and Prejudice’ by Jane Austen is the classic novel you must read. You will easily be able to identify with the female protagonist Elizabeth Bennet and her relationship with Fitzwilliam Darcy.
09/13Pisces: 100 Years of Solitude
Highly creative and idealistic, Pisces loves to get carried away by imagination. For this reason, Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s ‘100 Years of Solitude’ is perfect for them, which is known for its brilliant take on the genre of magical realism.
10/13Sagittarius: Gulliver’s Travels
They are curious by nature and enjoy traveling across the world. Much like you, Lemuel Gulliver from ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ is quite a traveler. In the book, he sets off on a series of thrilling escapades, which you would definitely want to explore yourself.
A Scorpio knows that love can be as dangerous as it can be passionate. Thus, there is no better book for them than Vladimir Nabokov’s classic ‘Lolita’, which addresses themes like love, obsession, and taboo.
12/13Taurus: The Great Gatsby
You are money-minded, known for being incredibly successful at everything you do. Thus, ‘The Great Gatsby’ by F. Scott Fitzgerald is the novel you will most enjoy. You will have no problem picturing yourself as part of the book’s extravagant party scenes!
Virgo is a very grounded, analytical sign and greatly values truth. They aren’t serious or severe and thus, humor does go a long way with them. Virgos must-read ‘Candide’ by Voltaire. It tells the story of a naive young man who travels the world and finally arrives at a bit of sense and practicality.
