Reading Horoscope: Cancer
Cancer is represented by the crab, but there is nothing to be crabby about this month. Kind, sensitive, and devoted to family and friends, Cancers have a full month ahead of planning cookouts, making lemonade for little siblings, and making sure this summer is the best for everyone they care most about. But Cancers need to inject a little self-care every so often to maintain balance and health. What better way than with these comforting and adventurous books.
Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel, adapted and illustrated by Hope Larson
“It was a dark and stormy night…” So begins the classic fantasy novel of adventure and danger, family bonds, and, above all, love. Hope Larson creates a new reading experience with her graphic novel adaptation. The art is fresh and expressive and none of the original magic of L’Engle’s tale is lost. The perfect read for a sunny day under a tree or even a dark and stormy night.
Pride and Prejudice, Marvel Classic, adapted by Nancy Butler and illustrated by Hugo Petrus
The ultimate Cancer, sensitive and deeply devoted to her family, Elizabeth Bennet also gets her own modern graphic novel adaptation. Although the story is condensed considerably, Butler and Petrus do a tremendous job conveying the essence of Jane Austen’s ironic novel, family, love and of course pride.
Everything is aligned to make this month a remarkable month for you Cancer. Enjoy!
