6 Of My Favorite Books

If I'm having a bad day I can just curl up and get lost in a book and everything seems better for a while.

6 Of My Favorite Books

Not everyone loves to read, I understand that. However, I love to read, it is an escape for me. If I'm having a bad day I can just curl up and get lost in a book and everything seems better for a while. Most people that enjoy reading tend to have a favorite genre of books, mine tends to fall along the lines of romance yet realistic. Although I did enjoy the Twilight Saga years ago, so I guess when it comes to books I'm willing to read any book once. If it keeps my attention, I will finish it, if not I will probably put it down and never touch it again. So here's a list of some of my all-time favorite books, in no particular order.

1. Forget You by Jennifer Echols

This was my number one book choice for a long time, back in high school. This book has a balance of love, life, and just plain crazy things. This is only one of two books that I have ever read more than once.

2. Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols

When I first found this book I was quite apprehensive because I knew there was a good chance that I wouldn't like what the book was related to. However I fell in love with this book, and this is the book that helped me find Jennifer Echols as an author and I have since read many of her books. This is the only book besides her other book, "Forget You" that I have read more than once.

3. The Lifeguard by Deborah Blumenthal

I don't really know what initially drew me in to read this book. However, once I began reading it, I couldn't put it down. I have a hard time getting interested in books usually, and this time I didn't struggle with it. And of course, once I was sucked into the book I completed it within a day.

4. Girl Hearts Girl by Lucy Sutcliffe

I have followed Lucy since I found her YouTube videos with her then girlfriend Kaelyn. I was so excited when Lucy announced that she had written a book and immediately pre-ordered it. Of course, I was excited! When I finally got the book I read it in two days. I loved this book. It made me feel like I was not the only one feeling the way I did about myself. What can I say? If you're looking for a book to help while you're struggling with your sexuality, this is the one I would recommend.

5. Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

One of my more recent finds, I have completely fallen in love with this series (the Maddox Brothers) of books. I think these books are excellently written and they definitely keep your attention throughout the entire book. This is a book I was upset to finish because I just didn't want the book to end.

6. Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire

This is the book I'm currently reading, but it is a part of the Maddox Brothers series. When I picked this book up I was surprised by the way it began, but so far am equally as in love with it as I was with the first book of the series. This is the same story line as the first book but in a different character's point of view. I have found this kind of fun since you don't normally get to see multiple perspectives.

And while I have many other books that I love and wouldn't mind adding to the list, I will keep it short. I hope if you're having a hard time finding something to read, this will help you choose something. I highly recommend any of the books above and hope you all enjoy them as much as I have.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
