Destiny doesn’t happen by accident . . .

When Justine Carmichael (Sagittarius, aspiring journalist and sceptic) bumps into her teenage crush Nick Jordan (Aquarius, struggling actor and true believer) it could be by chance. Or it could be written in the stars.

Justine works at the Alexandria Park Star – and Nick, she now learns, relies on the magazine’s astrology column to guide him in life.

Looking for a way to get Nick’s attention, Justine has the idea of making a few small alterations to the horoscope for Aquarius before it goes to print.

After all, it’s only the stars. What could possibly go wrong?

My Thoughts:

Do you believe in  fate? well if you do then this is the book for you. Justine had a major crush on Nick in her teenage years, years later they bump into each by accident or was it? Nick loves the astrology column in a magazine so much so that he lets it show him what to do next in life, Justine works for that said magazine and decides sneakily to change a few things. A funny and warm read.

After Eden By Helen Douglas

After Eden By Helen Douglas

When mysterious new boy Ryan Westland shows up at her school Eden Anfield is intrigued. On the face of it, he’s a typical American teenager. So how come he doesn’t recognise pizza and hasn’t heard of Hitler? What puzzles Eden most, however, is the interest he’s taking in her.

As Eden falls in love with Ryan, she stumbles across a book in Ryan’s bedroom – a biography of her best friend – written fifty years in the future. Unravelling Ryan’s secret, she discovers he has one unbelievably important purpose … and she might just have destroyed his only chance of success.

My Thoughts:

I managed to read this book within a day. It is a slim book that won’t take you to long to read. I felt that the story moved at a good pace and I was interested to see what would happen next. This was a nice, light read aimed at young adults with some sci fi thrown in. I really enjoyed learning about all the different stars too. Will be interested to read the sequel to this book.
