Books for the independent masters of self-control born 22 December – 19 January.

Responsible and disciplined, you’re a master of list-making, and even better at reducing your goals to smouldering ruins. Just remember, not everyone always lives up to your (impossible) standards. And as your loved-ones will most likely attest, your strong values and sense of justice make you a fierce adversary, and an even fiercer friend. Here are some wellsprings of worthwhile wisdom.

  • Inspired by a real case, Half Moon Lake is a captivating historical novel set in America's Deep South about a lost boy - and the two mothers who both seek to claim him.

  • The magnificent new novel by the bestselling and award-winning Kate Atkinson: 'Masterpiece' - Telegraph; 'Pageturner' - Evening Standard; 'Wise, funny and paced like a thriller' - Observer

  • In perhaps his boldest and most personal novel, Tom Keneally explores the journeys of modern Australians alongside the imagined story of ancient Learned Man whose remains were discovered in Western NSW decades ago.

  • Gripping, thought-provoking and deeply rewarding, 12 Rules for Life offers an antidote to the chaos in our lives: eternal truths applied to our modern problems.

  • One of the greatest novels of the twentieth century - reissued in a stunning hardback design to celebrate the Salinger centenary.
