Astro Poets
From the online phenomenons the Astro Poets comes the first great astrology primer of the 21st century. Full of insight, advice and humor for every sign in the zodiac, the Astro Poets' unique brand of astrological flavor has made them Twitter sensations. Their long-awaited first book is in the grand tradition of Linda Goodman's Sun Signs, but made for the world we live in today. In these pages the Astro Poets help you see what's written in the stars and use it to navigate your friendships, your career, and your very complicated love life. If you've ever wondered why your Gemini friend won't let you get a word in edge-wise at drinks, you've come to the right place. When will that Scorpio texting "u up?" at 2AM finally take the next step in your relationship? (Hint: they won't). Both the perfect introduction to the twelve signs for the astrological novice, and a resource to return to for those who already know why their Cancer boyfriend cries during commercials but need help with their new whacky Libra boss, this is the astrology book must-have for the twenty-first century and beyond.

Astro Poets Review

    4.5 stars - this was an absolute delight. Ive been following Astro Poets on twitter for years now, and their book definitely lives up. I have fully drunk the kool aid on astrology and I have no shame. Though not always perfect, astrology is so fascinating and often right. I would apologize for nagging everyone around me for their birthdays and birth times over the past week, but I’m not really sorry. 😝 can’t wait to come back to this time and again!

    This was an okay book. It had a different view on astrology.

    Received through FirstReads...I haven't read an astrology book for quite some time, and found this to be a nice, updated take on the subject. It was not too heavy, contained a good deal of humor, and was altogether an enjoyable read. This only goes over the sun signs, so if you want a more in-depth take on your chart, look elsewhere. Well done, in that it didn't drag on at all, was never boring; each section was just the right length. The sign-specific texts were especially amusing.

    First of all this book is just about SUN signs. It starts out saying what a sun sign is,and the different modes and elements. And then a little about the moon and Saturn returns and mercury retrogrades and rising signs. If you have no knowledge of astrology I believe this would just confuse you rather then help. I felt like I was reading more of a fiction book rather then an astrology book. I did not feel like it was a guide at all.

I felt like I was reading more of a fiction book rather then an astrology book. I did not feel like it was a guide at all. Every chapter starts out a different sun sign and tells about someone famous. I don't feel like you can explain a sun sign using a celebrity because there lives are nothing like an ordinary every day sun sign. Also it seamed to me the authors were taking there own perception of people they know as certain sun sign and making that all about that particular sign. People are not made up just by sun sign alone and I felt like most of this book was not accurate at all. All in all I was disappointed and don't feel its worth reading if your trying to learn astrology and its sun sign meanings.

    I'm a big fan of Astro Poets on Twitter, so I had high expectations for this book. And it exceeded them! This is such an engaging, approachable, and modern guide to astrology.

If you think astrology is garbage, then sure, you're not going to enjoy this book. But if you're open to learning more about the signs and how they relate to each other, I highly recommend Astro Poets as the place to start. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC in exchange for my honest review.

    Astro Poets is an entertaining look at the Zodiac. It's a huge gap in my knowledge, and this book starts with a thorough and engaging description of the zodiac signs, explaining things like ascendant sign, moon signs, and how signs relate to elements. After the introduction, chapters are dedicated to each sign. This is when it starts to really get fun! They describe the personality traits associated with each sign, and how they get along with other signs. They cover relationships in the workplac Astro Poets is an entertaining look at the Zodiac.

There are text message conversations in each chapter modeled on how a person will chat based on their sign. These texts feel hysterically accurate and was the first thing I shared with friends. This title is already making rounds at my workplace! Thank you Flatiron Books for an ARC copy of Astro Poets.

    Although I do not believe in astrology, I do enjoy educating myself about other viewpoints that exist. It was a fairly easy read but incredibly predictable. This was my introduction to astrology and I knew what their claim(s) would be about the successive signs. Also, this book was really disjointed because the two authors did not work together on all the signs. Instead, they each took half of the workload. That was frustrating as the information was inconsistent. Also, I just didn’t feel like w Although I do not believe in astrology, I do enjoy educating myself about other viewpoints that exist.

This book just reaffirmed to me that astrology is fake. #GoodreadsGiveaway

    I thought this was a super fun book. It was a really casual, modern and interesting look at the horoscope signs with lots of emphasis on the everyday behaviors of each sign instead of the more textbook characteristics you usually get. For instance, they provide examples of what texting would be like between two signs. And some of them were laugh out loud funny. In fact I resembled a couple of them :) Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me to read an advanced copy. This opinion is I thought this was a super fun book.

    I am not sure why I entered a giveaway for this as I am not a believer in astrology. But I am going to review this book on writing style considering it a work of fiction. It could have been put together better. The writers have thrown in a lot of personal anecdotes so they should have titled it as something reflecting that it is their interactions(predominantly carnal) with the different signs. The poems seem written by someone just dipping their toes into the world of poetry. This is a book tha I am not sure why I entered a giveaway for this as I am not a believer in astrology.

    Astro Poets on Twitter is my go-to for all my astrological needs. I'm Sagittarius AF as Alex speaks to my archer on a fundamental level.This will be a must-have for library zodiac collections. Each section is very thoughtfully laid out with familiar elements but the Astro Poet elan for language and description.I received a free copy in exchange for a fair review.

    I received this book as part of a goodreads giveaway. I loved taking a deep dive into my sign and learning more about myself. The beginning of the book is great for beginners explaining the basics and how your sign compares to others.

    tbh I had low expectations for this book, and it was a nice surprise. As assumed, it is still just sun signs, but it’s in depth, well written, and spunky. It has again been confirmed that I’m a Taurus. Hello.

    Astrology has always been somewhat interesting to me. I love to see perspectives of my personality, and that of people I know in their sign. This book was written in a fun and low key way. I won this book in a goodreads giveaway, but I am glad it did!
