5 Books You Should Read This Summer

If you're like me, you read almost constantly to the point that you run out of books to read and have no idea what to try next. But never fret, here are five books I've enjoyed this summer so far that you should try too! To spice things up, each book is going to be a (hopefully) different genre, and I'm not going to try to give up too much of the plot.

1. "Pride and Prejudice"

Okay, I've read this book probably a billion times, but I never get tired of it. If you're the type of person who enjoys jumping back in time, this is the book for you. It's fun, romantic, and it made me laugh out loud several times. Jane Austen outdid herself with this one.

2. "Game of Thrones"

If you're the type of person who's into the middle ages, dragons, and badassery, this is definitely the book for you. The book follows several characters, so you're always hopping from one to the next, making it overall a very interesting read.

3. "Gone Girl"

If you like mysteries, this book is definitely for you. I just finished reading this about a week ago and it was absolutely insane. I had no idea who to trust in it and even now I'm still in shock from the way it ended. 10/10, would recommend.

4. "The Book Thief"

This to date is one of my all time favorite books. It's a historical novel that follows a young girl living in 1939 Nazi occupied Germany, narrated by Death. No- I'm serious. this book was actually narrated by Death. If you want to try this book though, I'd keep a box of tissues nearby.

5. "The Stand"

If you like Stephen King novels, this is the one for you. This was an absolutely terrifying post-apocalyptic novel. I don't want to go into much detail, just try it. It's seriously great.

If you need more inspiration, Goodreads is a popular website that has every book under the sun in it. You can look books up from genre, category, and even the year it came out. Now go find yourself a book, a comfy spot, and get to reading!

Falling For Fall

Super Cute Home Decor and Food Ideas for the Autumn Season.

Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
