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

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

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.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
