5 Books Fiction Lovers Need To Read

Nothing is like reading a book, especially one that takes you away from the stress of the real world for a while. Books are like a portable Narnia doorway that allows you to experience worlds without even leaving your couch. There are so many, however, it's hard to choose! For fiction lovers, the decades of book possibilities are overwhelming and very time consuming.To help out the process, here are five books that you could check out!

1. "The Things They Carried" by Tim O' Brien

This book is awesome for the fiction lovers who enjoy reading historical fiction. The story takes place during the Vietnam War, following the seven men of the Alpha Company. One of the characters is O'Brien himself, which makes it an interesting mix of "story truth and real truth," as the book calls it. Check it out here: http://www.amazon.com/Things-They-Carried-Tim-OBri...

2. "The Night Circus" by Erin Morgenstern

This book is a good option for the Fantasy lovers. This story is about a circus that only appears at night and the magical people surrounding it. The multiple viewpoints and time jumps can be confusing at times, but it provides a more complex story to enjoy. Morgenstern also does an awesome job with the circus itself; many people who've read this book have a completely different idea of what the circus is. The book is also vivid, with room for the reader's own imagination. Check it out here: http://www.amazon.com/Night-Circus-Erin-Morgenster...

3. "The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie: A Flavia de Luce Novel" by Alan Bradley

This book is a great addition to a mystery lover's collection. The book is the first in a five book series that tells the story of 11-year-old Flavia de Luce, a chemist and amateur sleuth. She finds a dead raven with a strange stamp in its beak and a body in the garden, which leads to an investigation that channels a bit of Sherlock Holmes. Bradley also does a great job of painting the small village of Buckshaw. Check it out here: http://www.amazon.com/Sweetness-Bottom-Pie-Flavia-...

4. A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall

This is a unique telling of the stereotypical boy-meets-girl love story. This rom-com follows two college students who meet in a creative writing class. What makes this different? It's told from 14 different viewpoints. Some of the best include a squirrel, a barista and a bench. Hall handles the viewpoints well, so no confusion occurs. It's a breath of fresh air for anyone looking for a new read. Check it out here: http://www.amazon.com/Little-Something-Different-S...

5. "Aurora Abroad" by Karen Kiefer

Kiefer tells the story of Aurora (yes, "Sleeping Beauty" Aurora), who discovers that she is a princess and her aunt is trying to kill her. She gets transported to the world of the Emperor without clothes, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Red Riding Hood and many more. Kiefer does a great job of pulling all of these tales together to create an epic adventure. It's a great mash up of fairy tales, comedy and romance!

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
