Review: Dogstrology

Click the picture to purchase the book on Amazon

Rating: ★★★★

I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher (Grand Central Publishing) in exchange for an honest review. 

I love dogs. I love astrology. So of course I loved this book! 

This is a cute little book that pairs adorable pictures of dogs with astrology. The tone is light and humorous. I laughed out loud a few times. I particularly loved the little note on the edition notice page. It said, “Any resemblance in these astrological readings to actual persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental. Also, it’s astrology, of course it’s accurate.” I loved that they put that there even though very few people read the edition notice page. 

I enjoyed looking at all the photos of the dogs. However, it is worth noting that none of the photos are original to the book. The photos are from Shutterstock.

As for the astrological content, it is very basic. Don’t expect to learn a whole lot. The descriptions are very brief. I’m already well acquainted with astrology so nothing was new to me. I also just want to point out that this book is not about astrology for your dog, it’s a book that uses dogs to explain astrological concepts. 

Overall, if you love dogs or astrology or just super fun books in general, then pick this book up! It would also make a great gift.

Review: Madame Clairevoyant’s Guide to the Stars

Click the picture to purchase the book on Amazon

Rating: ★★★★★

I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher (Harper Books) in exchange for an honest review. 

I LOVED this book!

Ever since quarantine started, I’ve developed an interest in astrology. I used to be really into astrology when I was a young girl, but then never thought much of it as I got older. I’m so glad I got back into it. I’ve been doing more research on it, and it is a lot more complex than you think. For example, I finally figured out all of my three signs (Taurus sun sign, Virgo rising sign, Aquarius moon sign). 

This book is not your typical astrology book. It does not give the same stereotypical information you get everywhere else. Instead, the book is a collection of essays that goes beyond the superficial. Each sign gets its own essay where the author does a deep dive into the sign and provides examples of famous icons who embody the sign. There is also an emphasis on the fact that we embody elements from all of the signs, not just our sun sign. 

I did find that some essays were better than others, but that is to be expected in a book like this. 

I liked that the book had both an introduction and a conclusion. One of my pet peeves in non-fiction books is when books have a strong introduction but no conclusion. Having a conclusion helps brings the book full circle, which is exactly what this book did.

Lastly, I just want to talk about how gorgeous this book is. The cover is a vibrant blue with shiny gold details. But the best part is the color of the font. The entire book is in blue font. How cool is that? (In case you’e wondering, it is totally readable).

Overall, I really recommend this book to astrology lovers, both new and seasoned.
