In order of appearance:

Tell The Wolves I'm Home by: Carol Rifka Brunt

Set in 1987 this book was incredibly well written, the point of view differed from anything I had recently read. People are comparing it to To Kill A Mockingbird so.....You get it.

House Of Leaves by: Mark Danielewski

Scare your actual pants off. This book is incredible. Seriously don't read it after dark, traumatic (first hand experience) All I can say is the house is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside...How could you not want to find out why?

The Bricks That Built The Houses by: Kate Tempest

In this season of political unrest, consider this quiet albeit articulate book a very literal gift (you see what I did there? It's actually a gift and a gift of literature...yikes) The NYT Book Review says of Tempest 'language, passion and politics, and if that isn't life, what is?' This book is stirring and I cannot recommend highly enough!

Blood And Earth by: Kevin Bales

This was a book, as I mentioned in my video and brief description that was assigned for a class last semester. We never got to it (as a class) but I read it cover to cover in 72 hours and found it to be eye-opening, jaw-dropping, and since I'm all about the alliteration, heart-wrenching. If you're wondering about the future of the planet, and curious about the links between humans and ecology- this is a very manageable and interesting read!

The Roommates by: Stephanie Wu

'True tales of friendship, rivalry, romance and disturbingly close quarters.' This book hits close to home for anyone who has recently had to share their precious space with a roommate, or still is. If you think you're the only one with a roommate agreement, wondering who's dirty cup is in the sink, or who's turn it is to buy toilet paper- fear not- we're all struggling.

Remember The True Meaning of Christmas

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media. I hope the author of this was kidding or using digital sarcasm, but I am still repulsed and shocked by the lack of appreciation throughout this article. I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
