Bookstrology: Aquarius


The New Year has brought in a fresh perspective, dear Aquarius, as you plan to make the most of the endless possibilities in store and not let the holiday momentum go to waste. Your imagination is on a rampage, focusing on the things you can get accomplished, because after all, you know you accomplish more than others. You’ll be willing to go outside your comfort zone to get the ball rolling. With your resourcefulness and problem-solving skills, the sky is the limit! Be wary of overdoing it, though, because as you know, you tend to get easily distracted with all those goals in mind. Make sure to make time to recharge your intellectual psyche with some quiet time spent reading. You’ll want to read something that’s both engaging and fast-paced. You’ll also want a dash of danger to balance out your everyday mundane busyness. The misfit heroine in your read will pull at your heartstrings even though your basic instincts know to never trust anyone, especially in fiction. On one hand you want her to be brought to justice for her naïveté—yet you’ll also find yourself rooting for her.

With her father dead and her mother in a new relationship, Yasmin yearns for a sense of belonging, finding comfort only in food and the fantasy of being close to Alice Taylor, a girl at school. Yasmin will do anything to become friends with pretty and popular Alice—even if Alice, like everyone else, thinks she’s a freak.
