7 Themes

I don't know if it has been said before, but if not I'll say it here:

Badass girls read.

They do. It's not always the shy people hiding their face behind a book in solitude, although that's totally fine and actually pretty cool if you're that girl. Girls seeking independence, adventure, an escape, and to just feed their soul NEED to read these books. Seriously. Do yourself a favor.

1. YOU are a BADASS by Jen Sincero #1 New York Times Best Seller

"How to stop doubting your greatness and start living an awesome life." Okay, your HAVE to read this. It's hilarious and inspiring, and Jen Sincero is actually real with you. It's not some BS self-help book, it's the badass bi*** Bible. Figure out who you are, accept what you love, change what you hate, and kick life right in the ass. Get it, girl.

3. 52 Cups of Coffee by Megan Gebhart

Okay, so when Megan Gebhart graduated, she didn't want to fall into a boring ordinary life. So she went to 29 different cities, and met so many different people with different stories over coffee. READ IT.

Release the blocks that restrict you from what you want in this life.

5. The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck

An amazing blogger is so real with us and realizes you don't have to be so positive all the time. Accept fear, don't avoid it, and get stronger by facing the things that hurt you and scare you. Let go. It's not about not caring about anything, it's about not caring about adversity.

Favorite quote: "You can't love somebody into loving you."

8. And The Heart Says Whatever by Emily Gould

Such a good read about being a young adult in the city surrounded by bar tenders, bloggers, and so many up and coming people and businesses. You get to read about a young literary out there doing her thing in the most exciting way.

Favorite quote: "But I did these things because I felt the pull of a trajectory, a sense of experience piling up the way it does as you turn the pages of a novel. I would be lying if I said I was a different person now. I am the same person. I would do it all again."

13. Wild by Cheryl Strayed

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat.

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount.
