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?

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.
