Fiction is my favorite book genre and are full of interesting choices of books to read. Every fiction book I read introduced me to a new perspective and thinking that has encouraged me to view life differently. The few that most enraptured me are the following:

1. Percy Jackson

Percy jackson

This books series starts of with introducing a young demigod, Percy Jackson, and takes the audience on a hilariously crazy journey filled with Greek mythology. This book series spun me into a thoughtful abyss because of all the mythology involved. After reading the books, I got very enraptured by all kinds of mythology which was a good way to learn about different cultures.

2. Skulduggery Pleasant

Skulduggery Pleasant

This book introduces the idea that the world is crazier than you imagine. Some people are normal, and just want to live to the best life possible. Some people want more than that. Stephanie wants more from life as she is completely tired of her normal life. So, she creates a copy of herself in the mirror and decides to go on an adventures with a talking skeleton detective. This blew my mind because it encapsulates the possibilities of an endless, magical world with things you would only ever see in your dreams.

3. Harry Potter

Harry potter

Naturally, the development of the characters and the plot makes the Harry Potter series one of the greatest of all time. The intricate details and connection of all the different events in Harry Potter fascinates me. Each time I read it, I'm awed by how J.K.Rowling constructed and connected all the plots from all the books.

4. The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby

The timelessness of the classic The Great Gatsby is applicable to all ages and captures the American spirit. When I read it, I was blown away by how relevant the book was and how real it seemed. What most fascinates me is how Fitzgerald came up with such a great plot. I really enjoyed the book as it shows the true idea of the American Dream.

5. The Lord of the Flies

The Lord of the Flies

The books starts of with a plane crash lands a group of British boys on a remote island with no supervision or method to contact the civilized world. The Lord of the Flies blew my mind when I read it in class my sophomore year because it was fascinating to see how young boys would live without any supervision. It was interesting to see how they formed their "society" without a proper civilization.

6. Anthem

Anthem

Anthem by Ayn Rand is a dystopian novel that is set in the future. What I found most interesting about this book is that it was the set in the future without any high-tech technologies that is most commonly found in any other text that is set in the future. This differentiated this books from others I have read and gave me a new perspective of thinking about how the world could turn out in the future.

To The Professors Who Don't Put In Our Grades Until It's Too Late

Since you're not updating your grade book anyway, mine as well just forget about that D I got on last weeks exam

Dear College Professors,

As finals are right around the corner, we are all wondering what we need to make in order to ace your class... or not fail your class. But how are we supposed to take the time to calculate this, when all we have is a single letter midterm grade? You may not realize but grades are the central focus of the school, and better yet, college. We strive to get an A and we study endless hours so we can achieve that goal. And for you to not be able to do us the simple favor of putting in that grade, is absurd.

Let's just say, Billy, with the purple hair who sits in the back corner, slacked the entire year and is assuming he has no better than a C in the class. We have a month left of school and he wanted to try to bring up his grade in creative writing, maybe not to an A, but he has come to the realization that he cannot fail the course because his parents cannot afford for him to retake the class. He recently was in the library writing his paper, and even missed the new episode of Game of Thrones episode, to make sure that his paper was golden.

Now it's been two weeks since he handed in that paper. Still no grade. The countdown is on, 10 days left of class and barely enough assignments to pull that grade up. He has 9 work shifts, 5 finals, 2 study guides, and 1 teacher that inputs all his grades. Poor Billy. With not a clue of what any of his grades are, and barely any time to go personally ask every professor for his grades, he's just going to strive to do the best he can on all of his finals.

Two weeks later...

Turns out Billy had a C+ in creative writing, but a D in logic, the class he assumed he was doing well in because he has only had a few assignments.

So points is, professors if you are not updating our grades regularly or at least a few times before and after midterms, we won't know what we are working with. Also being able to look at our grades directly, motivates us to want to fix a lacking grade or ultimately get the best grade possible. We become more determined when we see the number directly rather than when we're just guessing at it.

In high school, all my teachers always put our grades into the computer immediately, but now when school is more challenging and assignments are time-consuming and lengthy, THIS is when we're unable to see how we are doing. How is that fair?

So moral of the story, while we are studying for 5 exams, writing 2 papers and working a part-time job. Take a little stress off our backs and at least give us an estimate of where we are standing.

Thank you,

A frustrated student trying to raise her GPA
