Astrology IRL: Whatever the drama, the stars have the answer by Liz Marvin

I received an ARC of this book from Ebury Publishing in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own.

I don’t believe in God, I don’t believe that there’s any external entity controlling our lives, actions or future, I don’t believe that the stars do anything other than shine and die.


I love astrology. I may not believe in it much, but I do love how mysterious and intense it makes my Scorpio ass sound. And sometimes, some predictions are accurate too, but I eventually end up filing it under the Coincidences folder.

Read on to find out what I thought of Astrology IRL!

Goodreads synopsis:

Astrology IRL: Whatever the drama, the stars have the answer …

Sometimes brutal, always truthful straight-talking life advice direct from the stars.

What does your day have in store?
Find out this, and more
With Astrology IRL


How to turn Monday into MonYay (Taurus – bring lovely snacks)
Starry snog, marry and avoid (Aries + Virgo – you were warned)
What’s your super power? (Cancer = Barack Obama in The Batmobile)
Cosmic self-care (Scorpio – you’ll feel less furious if exhausted. Work out.)

Also turn to this book if you want to know if you should quit your job, what you should have for dinner, how to manage your boss and where to go on holiday.


I finished Astrology IRL in one sitting and really loved reading it! It’s funny, straightforward, and very Internet-y–exactly the kind of book you’d race through in a flight or a waiting room.

Scorpios suffer in most astrology predictions. We’re mostly just described as passionate and intense, thinking about murder all the time. That’s absolute bull. My Scorpion ass is mostly just a tightly wound ball of existential dread. And I think about murder only once every fortnight.

The best part about this book is the writing. It doesn’t take itself seriously, and yet when it gives cosmic self-care tips, you want to listen.

In all, Astrology IRL is a quick read that’s both funny and quite accurate. I recommend it to anyone who likes astrology or, like yours truly, checks predictions out just for the heck of it.

Rating: 4 out of 5

  1. “And I think about murder only once every fortnight.”

    I know for certain that’s not true. You think about it all the time. You execute it only once every fortnight. 😜
