What to Read
This book has everything a Gemini needs: complex characters and the "main character who leaves a big city and finds love in a small town" trope that we all can't help but fall for. Delilah Green Doesn’t Care tells the story of a photographer who heads back to her hometown and reconnects with Claire, a girl from her past. As you can guess, one thing leads to another, which leads to them questioning whether they are more than just friends.
Chloe Davis was 12 years old when her father confessed to killing six teenage girls in her small Louisiana town. Fast forward 20 years later, Chloe and her family have moved forward the best way they can, Chloe becomes a psychologist and a fiancé, and, all of a sudden, the killings start happening again. You really can't help but feel the emotions of every character in this story, and it's one book that you can't put down until you figure out what happens. This is a perfect read for a curious Gemini who can use their expert sleuthing skills to solve this bone-chilling mystery.
If the title of this novel doesn't scream Gemini for you, the plot sure will. Ali Collins is left with her late father's 1968 Firebird convertible and has no intentions of keeping it. An offer to sell the car comes her way that is enough money to save her childhood home from foreclosure, but there are two problems: The buyer is 300 miles away and Ali cannot drive a stick shift. She recruits her ex-boyfriend to drive and they take a journey up the pacific coast and, also, memory lane. After a few detours, roadblocks, encounters with strangers, and weird tension between exes, Ali realizes that this journey is leading her to an unknown truth about her father that makes her realize that some things are maybe worth saving.

If there is one sign that loves to chit-chat, it’s the one ruled by Mercury. Because this planet—the planet of communication—rules Geminis, they know how to talk it up like no other! A speed dating event blends two of Gemini’s best traits: talking and not staying in one place for too long. This air sign is a natural floater, and this is an ideal outing that never feels boring and is the perfect opportunity to meet new people.
