in Fiction by

Even for the strongest non-believers, it’s hard to deny how fun astrology can be. Have you ever met anyone who doesn’t at least want to know to their horoscope for the month? We didn’t think so. Personally, we love astrology here at BookTrib, regardless if you’re a passionate Aries, a romantic Cancer, or an imaginative Libra. Speaking of Libras, since we’re firmly in Libra territory (September 23 to October 23), and yes, we are going to pretend that NASA did NOT add a sign to the zodiac, we figured it was time to celebrate our justice-loving, peacemaking brothers and sisters. So for all of you late September to October babies out there, here are eight books guaranteed to appeal to any Libra: It Ends With…

5 Disney Channel Original Movies You Can’t Help But Love

in Fiction by

Everyone I know secretly loves Disney Channel Original Movies (or DCOMs, for short!).
