5 Books To Put On Your Summer Reading List

We have been waiting for summer since last summer and now that it is finally here, it is time to do all the things that we have been saying we would do once it is summer. And now that it is finally summer, it is time to kick back, relax, and enjoy a good book—preferably one that would be perfect for summer.

1. 'Thirteen Reasons Why' by Jay Asher

If you have already watched the first season on Netflix, but have not read the book, now is the time. The Netflix series has recently been renewed for a second season, so right now would be the perfect time to read the novel.

2. 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close' by Jonathan Safran Foer

If you are a mystery fan this one is for you. Told from the point-of-view of nine-year-old Oskar Schell as he searches through the five boroughs of New York City trying to find the lock to the key he found in his father’s bedroom closet. It is a feel-good book just perfect for the summer time.

3. 'The Notebook' by Nicholas Sparks

…or any Nicholas Sparks novel, if I am being honest. Nothing says summer like a typical, cheesy, tear-jerking, but beautiful romance novel. And this Nicholas Sparks novel has got it all.

4. 'To Kill a Mockingbird' by Harper Lee

This American classic is one of those that should be read over and over and over again. The famous novel is one of those books that the juice from every page, paragraph, sentence, and word could be squeezed until there was nothing left.

5. 'Once and For All' by Sarah Dessen

As Dessen’s newest novel, Once and For All is about Louna who helps brides plan their perfect day, but has ironically given up on happily ever after ever since her first love ended tragically, but girl-magnet Ambrose is not just ready to give up on her yet. Just like Nicholas Sparks, any Sarah Dessen novel is perfect for the summer.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
