Virgos are often put down badly by many astrologers and written up as being fussy and narrow-minded. But when a Virgo shines, there is practically no sign to match their inner light. An in-tune Virgo is a treat to meet. When a Virgo is confident within themselves they are the most successful, structured and creative of all signs. Smart, sophisticated, and kind, Virgo has a rich inner life. One of the most passionate signs, Virgos specialize at connecting to their physicality, and this earth sign loves and celebrates physical connection with their partner.
All Adults Here by Emma Straub – In a novel by the quirky and brilliant Emma Straub, this is a perfect summer read for anyone looking for a wholesome and hilarious story about family, love, school, and life. Taking place over one summer, three adult children find a connection over new family members and a glorious small town. For hope and love, this book is perfect for the kind-hearted and caring Virgo.
Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough – Little known fact: Virgos are the detectives of the zodiac. They are the ones who provide analytical insight and procure facts to understand matters on a deep level. They enjoy reading thriller books and solve mysteries by figuring out who’s committed the crime — which will give Virgos a lot to think and talk about.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon – If you’re a Virgo you’re kind, gentle, and fiercely committed. That’s where The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time comes in. A book about a young, autistic boy named John Francis Boone, who “sets out to solve the murder of a neighbor’s dog and discovers unexpected truths about himself and the world” in the process. This book has recently been adapted into a Broadway play, I haven’t seen it, but I’m sure it’s wonderful.
Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power by Rachel Maddow – Okay, here’s the deal: Virgos are logical, practical, and like to identify ways they can take action. That’s why a book like Driftis perfect for Virgos. Rachel Maddow is crazy smart, (there is a possibility a reader might gain IQ points just listening to her narrate this book). In it she argues that we’ve shifted away from our founding father’s ideals and have become a nation who is, somehow, okay being constantly at war. I suppose it’s not so much a book about taking action as it is one that is as practical and truthful as it is funny and amusing. Just the sort of book a Virgo would like.
Normal People by Sally Rooney – This is a stunning novel about the transformative nature of relationships. The story takes place in secondary school and follows two teenagers, one popular, and one unpopular. But when the two strike up a conversation—awkward but electrifying—something life changing begins. Normal People is the story of mutual fascination, friendship and love. It takes us from that first conversation to the years beyond, in the company of two people who try to stay apart but find that they can’t. This layered, relatable novel should appeal to Virgos big hearts.
Wild by Cheryl Strayed – At twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail and she would do it alone. Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her. Any Virgo will revel in Cheryl’s journey and admire how her determination and strong heart drove her.
