    Top 10 Books to Read in College

    Most universities have been in session for at least a month now (some for two), so I thought, what better way to welcome the new school year than by creating a book list just for college students (honestly, the lessons these books teach are timeless, but I think they especially pack a punch for those still in school). I know it’s hard to make time for reading when you’re rushing between classes, meetings, and study sessions, but if you’re anything like me, reading is your therapy, and you can manage to squeeze in at least 15 minutes a day to pick up a good book.

    Top 10 Tuesday: Have a Laugh

    Top 10 Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in 2010. It combines what I love most in this world into one—lists, books, and blogging. It couldn’t be any better suited for me! Today’s list is all about getting a laugh. Let’s jump right into the book that have made me chuckle in the past. 1. Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris I read this recently and some of his mementos are absolutely hilarious. He recounts serious tales of speech therapy as well as hilarious moments of scooping a turd out of a toilet bowl. A great, light read that leaves you with a couple giggles. If…

    Top 5 Wednesday: The Tough Stuff

    This Top 5 Wednesday is brought to you by the tough stuff. This week I’m going to highlight the books I’ve read that talk about tough topics such as sexual assault, sexuality, abuse, mental health, or truly anything else that isn’t super happy or healthy. It’s important that books cover these topics because they are present in life and readers should be aware of the tough stuff going on around them, especially when it isn’t happening to them. Let’s get started. 1. Luna by Julie Anne Peters Luna tackles the difficult topic of sexuality and chronicles the struggles of being transgender and understanding your identity in high school. I read this during…

    Top 5 Wednesday: Rainy Day Reads

    What’s your favorite thing to do on a rainy day? Personally, I love curling up on the couch with a good book in hand and watching the hours go by with every page I turn. Here is my list of my favorite rainy day reads. 1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling This will always be one of my favorite reads. Whenever I’m sad, I pick up this book and I instantly feel better. The development of friendship and sense of adventure will always appeal to readers. It’s great for a rainy day because it’s an easy read, and if it makes you happy, it’s a great investment for an…
