The Signs as Book Covers

Some may say I graduated college with a degree in both English and astrology (note: I definitely did not), so that makes me qualified to write this post on books and zodiac signs.

Without Giving Spoilers, Here Are 8 Plot Twists We Did Not See Coming

There are few things I like more than being genuinely gagged by a well-finessed plot twist. A long-lost sibling appears to claim the throne? Sign me up.

In order to best appreciate a masterful plot twist, however, one must go into it completely blind to what’s about to go down. With that in mind, here are some of our favorite plot twists with 100% NO SPOILERS WHATSOEVER.
