Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Are Aquarius’s uncompromising? Rebellious maybe? Our Aquarius sisters were all born with free spirits and are not willing to either go with the flow or bound by rules. Just like Lady Theodosia Fortescue-Brown who becomes a pioneer as a female detective in the 1890s London in The Lady Detective by Ava January.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

It’s your time to shine and get excited, all Pisces fellows! This month you somehow may not feel like being alone and spending all the time in the couch binge watching Netflix, so you’re looking for some group activities that you and your friends all enjoy… In the meantime, I recommend The Book Club by Mary Alice Monroe if you really miss them and their support. Be chill and enjoy the strong peer rapport in the book as you wait for their replies!
