13 Books To Read This Spring Break

After last year's spring break book recommendation post, I knew I had to do it again. After all, hundreds more books released in 2017, and there are some older titles I need to recommend too. So if you're looking for the perfect book to read during your spring break travels or downtime, I've got thirteen (well, technically eighteen) recommendations for you.

1. The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

If you love Scandal or Veronica Mars or even West Wing, you'll probably love Jennifer Lynn Barnes's YA political thriller.

2. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

It's a New York Times' bestseller for a reason. If you haven't read this Black Lives Matter-centered book yet, what's stopping you?

3. The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

If you're looking for rich fantasy with some familiar tales retold, this collection of short stories is perfect.

4-7. Open Road Summer, The Start of Me and You, When We Collided, and The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord

Emery's contemporary novels are beautiful. Her first two are relatively light and swoonworthy, but the more recent two are deeper and even more relatable.

8. The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

If you're seeking more rich fantasy, Roshani wove a unique world in her debut novel.

9. Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

If you don't mind more serious books when you're on vacation, Eliza and Her Monsters is perfect, thanks to its dealings with mental illness, creativity, and friendships.

10. Love, Hate & Other Filters by Samira Ahmed

Stories about hate crimes and wrong perceptions are always relevant.

11. Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee

If you love web-series and quirky protagonists, Kathryn's books, especially her latest, are perfect for you.

12. My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows

If, however, you prefer historical fiction that doesn't take itself too seriously, you've gotta read the Lady Janies' remix of Lady Jane Grey.

13. The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner (and the subsequent books in the series)

Megan Whalen Turner's fantasy series is a CLASSIC. It's as old as me and a Newbery Honor to boot.

What do you plan to read during your spring break this year?

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
