Books for Gemini: Our picks for the social readers of the zodiac


Hey, Geminis! Slow down a minute. You may always be on the go — chatting it up with friends and strangers or passionately pursuing your next hobby — but we’ve got some book picks sure to be as charming as you.

Born between May 21 - June 21, this star sign is always up to try something new, especially if it stimulates their playful, intellectually curious minds. Symbolized by the celestial twins, Castor and Pollux, their dual nature encourages them to look at things from a differing perspective. This, combined with a social nature and uncanny ability to connect with others, makes a Gemini the perfect add to any book club discussion.

As an air sign, their breezy personality makes them highly adaptable, but like the wind, can be a bit unpredictable. These imaginative and intellectually stimulating books on the Libby app, picked just for Geminis, are sure to keep the twins engaged despite a sometimes short attention span (things to do, people to talk to, right?).
