6 Books You Throw At The Wall While Reading

There are books that make you smile, books that warm your heart, books that make you cry, and then books that rip your heart out with such force that all you can do to deal with the pain is throw that book at the wall as punishment for the trust it broke with you. Reading those books can be quite exhausting, both emotionally and physically, so here's a list of a few books who scream to be thrown at the wall, to prepare you for your next reading venture.

Note: this is a spoiler-free list.

1. "Ender's Game"

Throughout the entire book, Ender, the main character, struggles with his humanity and the question of his good and evil nature. Well, there comes a point in the book where Ender gets horribly tricked into doing something he would never do. Not only does that destroy sweet Ender, it destroys you, the reader. It literally took every fiber in my body to resist hurling the book at the nearest wall.

2. "A Storm of Swords," aka "Game of Thrones" No. 3

Two words: Red. Wedding.

3. "13 Reasons Why"

Although you know the ending going into the book, it's an incredible emotional journey that I really wasn't prepared for when I started the book. I had to remind myself that it was only a book, it wasn't real, it wasn't real, it wasn't real. Even so, it took a lot to make myself refrain from throwing this book because it honestly just wasn't fair.

4. "The Fault in Our Stars"

This is a book with a somewhat predictable ending, but did it have to hurt so much? It's very difficult to believe in happy endings after reading this beloved John Green novel. It's even harder to believe in reading books that don't give you the urge to hurtle them across the room.

5. "The Green Mile"

Oh, you thought "The Green Mile" was going to be just another awesome Stephen King thriller novel? Wrong. Get ready to have your heart torn out multiple times. And then electrocuted in front of your face.

6. "Perks of Being a Wallflower"

The thing about "Perks" that makes you want to throw the book is that you can see yourself in Charlie, and you understand his pain and hate to see him alone and hurting, and you just want to climb inside the book and love him, damnit!

Despite all of the pain and suffering these books cause, however, you and I both know that in 10 minutes, you'll walk over to that book, pick it up and apologize profusely, then curl back up into your corner and finish it. And then in two weeks, you'll most likely read that book again.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
