Gemini (May 21 – June 20): The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
Being a Gemini, there are two very distinctive sides to your personality. One day you can be outgoing and the life of the party, and the next you can be bundled up at home binge watching your fave Netflix show by yourself. When you're having one of your lazy days, head to the library and check out The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. It explores the dark life of Dr. Jekyll and his alter ego Mr. Hyde. A must read for any Gemini, tbh.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams
You're a sensitive little nugget, Cancer. You let your emotions get the best of you at times, but that's only because you have so much love to give to everyone you meet.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
You have no problem being the center of attention, so people often mistake you for being overly self-centered. What can you say? You're just one confident person who knows all they're capable of, much like Dorian Gray in The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. His story is a bit dark, but worth the read for any Leo out there.
