6 Binge-Worthy Books to Read This Summer

Summer reading is the best kind of reading, and this summer will be no different. Sunglasses? Sunscreen? 4 books in case you can't pick just one? Whether you need a good book to read on the beach or just have some extra time on your hands, here's a list of books to binge read this summer.

1. Three Seconds.

Three Seconds is a dark thriller about an ex-criminal who goes undercover for the government and becomes a double agent in order to investigate the Swedish mob. This best seller is being adapted to fit the big screen August 17th, so make sure you finish reading before then!

2. #Girlboss.

A must read for any #Girlbosses out there. This book tells the story of Sophia Amoruso, creator of the company Nasty Gal, and includes all the ups and downs that brought her success. This book will give you all the motivation you need to take charge of your own life. After you're done reading her book, check out the Netflix Original Series that brings her book to life.

3. The Hate U Give.

This book tells the story of Starr Carter, a 16-year-old who is the only witness to the shooting of her unarmed friend by police. She must work to clear his name after the media begins to paint her friend as a thug, gangbanger, and drug dealer. Although the story is fiction, it mirrors many of the issues surrounding police brutality in America today. The book is in the process of becoming a movie starring Amandla Stenberg and KJ Apa.

4. The Girl in the Spider's Web.

This novel is the fourth installment in the Millennium series and brings back the girl with the dragon tattoo, Lisbeth Salander. In this action-packed book, she investigates a criminal organization called the "Spider Society," working to defend herself against spies and corrupt government officials. The movie adaption of this book is in the works and will be released November 9th.

5. All The Bright Places.

If you need a good cry, this book may be perfect for you. This story follows two friends, Theodore Finch and Violet Markey, who both have their own complicated relationships with death. When they are together, they bring out the best in one another, until things take a turn for the worst. This book is in the early stages of becoming a movie and will hopefully hit the big screen late 2018 or early 2019.

6. The Darkest Minds.

This young adult book features all the good stuff: mysterious powers, unexplained government control, and badass kids who fight the government with their powers! For anyone who likes a good dystopian novel, this book is for you. Make sure to catch the movie when it hits theaters August 3rd!

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.

Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating.
