In this book, Duhigg provides a fascinating exploration of what makes conversations work and and teaches the tips and skills we need to navigate conversations more successfully.

Elon MuskElon Musk by Walter Isaacson

Clocking in at over 20 hours long, the audiobook isn’t for those looking for a quick listen, and Aries is up for the challenge.

They’ll also enjoy the astonishingly intimate story of the most fascinating and controversial innovator of our era—a rule-breaking visionary who helped to lead the world into the era of electric vehicles, private space exploration, and artificial intelligence. Oh, and took over Twitter.

House of Earth and BloodHouse of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas

The adventurous Aries won’t mind dipping a toe in a new series—especially one as sizzling and suspenseful as Crescent City.

This first in the series begins the story of half-Fae and half-human Bryce Quinlan as she seeks revenge in a contemporary fantasy world of magic, danger, and searing romance.

Fates and FuriesFates and Furies by Lauren Groff

Rams often have a short temper due to their fiery nature. In this examination of a marriage, Groff presents the story of a couple over the course of 24 years. As you might imagine with any long-term relationship, a subtle, quiet anger arises, but overall, it’s a deeply satisfying novel about love, art, creativity, and power that is unlike anything that has come before it.

Aries tend to be on-the-go, which can quickly lead to burnout. This guide offers a groundbreaking philosophy for pursuing meaningful accomplishment while avoiding overload.

Another famous Aries, Elton John reveals the truth about his extraordinary life, from his rollercoaster lifestyle as shown in the film Rocketman, to becoming a living legend.

Find a WayFind a Way by Diana Nyad

Determination runs in Aries’ blood and no one exemplifies that quite like Diana Nyad. She set a world record by becoming the first person to swim the shark-infested waters between Cuba and Florida with no cage for protection—and she achieved the incredible feat when she was 64 years old. Read this before you see the Oscar-nominated film Nyad, starring Annette Benning and Jodie Foster.

Jasmine and Jake Rock the BoatJasmine and Jake Rock the Boat by Sonya Lalli

Known to be a bit impulsive, Aries will fall for this love story where a spur-of-the-moment decision to join an Alaskan cruise getaway brings the chance for an onboard romance in this new enemies-to-lovers romance.

A Slow Fire BurningA Slow Fire Burning by Paula Hawkins

As a Fire sign, Aries will burn for this scorching thriller from the bestselling author of The Girl on the Train.

When a man is found gruesomely murdered in a houseboat, it triggers questions about three women who knew him. Three women who are—for different reasons— simmering with resentment. When it comes to revenge, even good people might be capable of terrible deeds. How long can secrets smolder before they explode into flame?

The SecretThe Secret by Lee Child and Andrew Child

Action is Aries’ middle name, and there’s plenty to be had in the page-turning, suspense-filled Jack Reacher series.

It’s 1992. All across the U.S., respectable, upstanding citizens are showing up dead. These deaths could be accidents, and they don’t appear to be connected—until a fatal fall from a high-floor window attracts some unexpected attention. That attention comes from the secretary of defense. All of a sudden he wants an interagency task force to investigate. And he wants Jack Reacher as the army’s representative. If Reacher gets a result, great. If not, he’s a convenient fall guy. But office politics isn’t Reacher’s thing. Three questions quickly emerge: Who’s with him, who’s against him, and will the justice he dispenses be the official kind... or his own kind?
