Ah. The last sign in the circle of the zodiac, our fish friends of Neptune. Not only is Pisces a water sign but they are also the sign of the fish. Whichever way their tale sways is the way they are feeling. It could be optimistic and sweet one day and pessimistic and non-forgiving the next. Even though Pisces is known to wear their hearts on their sleeves more often than not, don’t let that fool you. These little fishies are not to be messed with as they don’t let go easily either!
The Perfect Book Recommendations for Pisces!
1. Summer Bird Blue by Akemi Dawn Bowman
So, as we learned, Pisces is the sign of the fish, and not only does this book take place to home of many species of fish, it also is the very explanation of a Pisces. Like the ocean waves, this book will pull your heart strings back and forth like a puppet on a string. You’ll cry, have a heartfelt happiness in your stomach and then cry some more as you read through the beautiful but awfully sad journey of Rumi as she discovers how to be herself after an unimaginable loss.
2. Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman
This book will also give your emotions a run for its money, but in a totally different way. This book has such a beautiful metaphor at it’s core but is also very sad. Though the very real budding romance within these pages will definitely win over the Pisces heart. Kiko is a girl who seems lost but she finds a way through drawing and is able to swim through a sea of darkness until she finds more than one light in her path. Plus, there are fish on the cover, so that’s a bonus. Trust me Pisces, this one will get you!
3. Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett
This novel honestly has something for every zodiac sign. Who doesn’t love a hate to love romance that starts off by being deserted in the middle of a forest, oh and the only person who’s with you and knows how to get out of this alive is the one who broke your heart? I mean do I really need to say more, Pisces?
4. Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott
In this novel, Stella and Will fall for each other but it’s not your typical high school romance, because of a chronic lung disease called Cystic Fibrosis (CF), these two cannot touch each other in fear of likely fatal contamination. It raises the question, can you love someone you can never touch? Pisces is all about romance, but they tend to fall for the one they know they can’t have. Something about the forbidden romance makes them want it more and even if they don’t want to admit it, they love the challenge of seeing if that love will actually last just to prove everyone wrong. Clearly, Stella or Will had to be a Pisces!
5. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
When Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London’s Downworld, where vampires, warlocks, and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos. Remember how I said Pisces love love, well, it’s complicated love they love (or swim towards). I can’t think of a better trilogy that has the most complicated and passionate love to drive it home!
6. Watch Over Me by Mila Gray
In this novel, the emotions run high as Zoey has to protect her family from her abusive father. Enter Tristan. A former Marine and now member of the Coast Guard, Tristian promises his best friend, and Zoey’s Marine brother, that he will take care of Zoey and her family. Protect them, watch over them, and be the rock they need in their lives. Sometimes Pisces are everywhere within their heads and they just need a rock to steady themselves, especially if that rock were someone like Tristan. This book will literally make you hold your breath as surprises happen and we learn what someone will do for the person they truly love.
7. The Chaos of Standing Still by Jessica Brody
Ryn has one unread text message on her phone. And it’s been there for almost a year. She hasn’t tried to read it. She can’t. She won’t. Because that one message is the last thing her best friend ever said to her before she died. But as Ryn finds herself trapped in the Denver International Airport on New Year’s Eve thanks to a never-ending blizzard on the one-year anniversary of her best friend’s death, fate literally runs into her. And his name is Xander. The two of them bring out something in each other as the chaos continues. Grief, heart, airport delays; this book has everything to make you cry and somehow laugh at the same time. Pisces will love it because it will hit every which way its tail loves to swim.
8. The Red Scrolls of Magic by Cassandra Clare and Wesley Chu
All Magnus Bane wanted was a vacation—a lavish trip across Europe with Alec Lightwood, the Shadowhunter who against all odds is finally his boyfriend. But as soon as the pair settles in Paris, an old friend arrives with news about a demon-worshipping cult called the Crimson Hand that is bent on causing chaos around the world. A cult that was apparently founded by Magnus himself. Years ago. As a joke. Adventure, love, and chaos! Literally, the life of a Pisces!
