5 Must-Read Book Series For Fantasy Lovers Looking To Escape To Another World

Fantasy novels are definitely an acquired taste, but once you acquire that taste, it's hard to imagine reading anything else.

No matter what type of fantastical elements a fantasy book includes, they all serve the purpose of taking their readers to places they can only imagine and letting them experience elements of true magic in their finite pages.

These five book series surely do not disappoint in this regard.

1. The "Frostblood" Saga by Elly Blake

This series tells the story of Ruby, a 17-year-old fireblood girl who must hide her simmering power from the cruel frostblood ruling class.

Facing the dangers of mastering her fiery power as well as the need for revenge that plagues her every day, Ruby must face a world where fire and ice must come together to change the world as she knows it.

2. The "Iskari" Series by Kristen Ciccarelli

This series boasts deception, darkness, dragons, and a quick-witted, fierce protagonist that readers will be rooting for until the end. The latest book in the series was just published on November 12.

3. "The Sorcerer's Ring" series by Morgan Rice

Thor, a 14-year-old boy in the first book of this series, is determined to escape the cruel thumb of his father and three older brothers.

The only way he can do this is to join the King's Legion, the brave and fierce men protecting the kingdom.

Thor's destiny and the path he takes to achieve it will be far greater than he could've ever imagined.

4. "The Throne of Glass" series by Sarah J. Maas

Consisting of eight books altogether, the "Throne of Glass" series is definitely a time commitment for any reader.

These books are easy to fly through, however, as they are home to a clever, talented, and deathly protagonist.

This series will serve you plot twists in every direction and will leave you scrambling for the next book before you are barely done with the previous.

5. "Ash Princess" Trilogy by Laura Sebastian

The "Ash Princess" trilogy promises the last book of the three to come out in February 2020, but the first two have left readers eager for its release.

After her mother was murdered before her eyes, young Theodosia has been kept a prisoner in her own home by the very man who committed the act.

10 years pass, and Theo has had enough, willing to give up everything to save her people and her home.

While only a collection of five book series among thousands of others, these books embody what the fantasy genre is all about.

The authors responsible for them succeeded in creating stories to compel and enthrall their readers until the very last page.

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.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

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. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
