7 Books That Will Break Your Heart

There are two types of books I like to read when the weather is gloomy and cold. Sometimes the weather has me so down that I need a good cry and other times a novel to make me all cozy inside is just what I need. So grab a blanket, sit down, and cozy up with one of these perfect rainy day novels.

1. The Summer of Skinny Dipping by Amanda Howells

Starting with my favorite, The Summer of Skinny Dipping is a beautifully written novel about a young woman, Mia Gordon, whose family spends the summer with their cousins at the Long Island shore. She soon realizes that her favorite cousin has grown up much quicker than she has, leaving her feeling alone and insecure. At one of her cousin's parties, Mia meets the boy who lives next door. Seemingly odd, she likes the boy. As the flame ignites between the two, Mia knows her life will never be the same.

2. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

It's a classic. What more can I say? But who could forget when Elizabeth goes to see Mr. Darcy in the pouring rain? She may have gotten sick but at least it worked out for her in the end.

3. The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer

Controversial. I know. When it comes to Twilight you either love them or you hate them. Either way, there is no denying that, being set in the Pacific Northwest, it rains. A lot. To look outside and see the rain makes you feel more connected to the book.

4. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

Don't get me wrong, Harry Potter is amazing no matter the weather, but there is something special about reading it while wrapped in a cozy blanket listening to the rain.

5. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

Talk about a tear-jerker. Two teenagers who have suffered from cancer find themselves quickly falling in love. A beautiful novel about love and the harsh realities of life, you're sure to find yourself teary eyed.

6. Dreamland by Sarah Dessen

After Caitlin's sister leaves without a trace, Caitlin feels utterly lost. Until she meets Rogerson. When she's with him nothing seems real, like she's in a dreamland. The relationship quickly turns violent. What happens when being with Rogerson becomes a bigger problem than being without him?

7. Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone

A book that explores Purely-Obsessional OCD? Intriguing. Sam, a seemingly normal, popular junior in high school, battles her OCD everyday. When Sam meets Caroline, an unusual girl unfitting in Sam's group of friends, the only other person who knows about Caroline is Sam's psychiatrist. Caroline introduces Sam to the Poet's Corner and is instantly drawn in. Just as soon as Sam starts to feel normal, she is introduced to a new reason to question her sanity.

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.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
