5 Books You Will NOT Want To Put Down As Soon As You Start Them

Psychologically titillating. Page Turning. You'll make it through this list in a single weekend - and then you'll be asking yourself can I quit my job and read full-time?

5 Books You Will NOT Want To Put Down As Soon As You Start Them

Get your hands on these books ASAP to start your fall off with some great reads.

1. "The Couple Next Door" by Shari Lapena

I love to predict the way a book is going to turn out and then seeing if any of my predictions are correct. "The Couple Next Door" makes guessing correctly impossible. With a new twist every few chapters, you can't possibly guess what might happen next.

2. "The Stranger Beside Me" by Ann Rule

For the lover of true crime! Ted Bundy is infamous, his name is recognized by everyone but Ann Rule is able to give a unique view on this well-known story. Rule considered herself a friend of Bundy, the story of his horrific crimes shocked her, and the little pieces of his personal life she is able to add kept me turning the pages and wishing for more.

3. "Behind Closed Doors" by B.A. Paris

Trust me, read this when the sun is shining. The storyline made my skin crawl and the depravity of the antagonist left me convinced you can never fully know someone.

4. "The Wife Between Us" by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen

I thought I understood the storyline, I was convinced I had it all figured out, I was wrong. The story kept me on my toes, I couldn't devour it quickly enough. The second I finished the last page, I began looking for more books by these authors.

5. "The Need" by Helen Phillips

A story like you have never read before. The unique premise kept my interest from start to finish. Phillips was able to elicit emotions that I was unaware existed in me.

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.

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.

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.
