15 Must Read Books Series For The Avid Reader

All of these will knock your socks off.

I haven't always been enchanted by the idea of reading, but when I did, these are the books that captivated me the most. Perhaps you might find them interesting as well, or you'll find you've already read them.

1. "Harry Potter"

Wizards. Magic. Wands. The absolute opposite of what our world is. Maybe that's why it's so intriguing.

Buy the series on Amazon.

2. "Twilight"

Yes, it's a bit far-fetched that vampires sparkle, but these books captured the hearts of many young teenage girls, myself included.

3. "Throne of Glass"

My friend, Kimmy, just recently showed me this series, and I'm absolutely in love. If you like strong female protagonists, I highly recommend you read this.

4. "The Mortal Instruments"

This series messes with your brain. TOTALLY WORTH IT.

Buy the series on Amazon.

5. "Storm and Silence"

Written by Rob Thier, this story follows the footsteps of a young woman who dresses as a man in order to work. The beginning is a little dry, but I promise it picks up, and you will not be able to put these characters out of your mind.

6. "The Inheritance Cycle"

You probably don't recognize the title, but this is actually the Eragon series. Remember that book? Yeah, absolutely amazing.

Yes, another vampire series. Six books full of blood, sweat, and tears. Literally.

Greek gods, half-bloods, and mythical creatures. Growing up, you probably learned some of the stories encompassed around these novels.

These were the books to read back in middle school. The human-angels were forced to undergo experiments, but what has it made them into?

Buy the series on Amazon.

By the same author of "Percy Jackson", this series takes on the Egyptian gods. Following two siblings, you're in for the ride of your life.

A Beginner's Guide to Milwaukee Sports

Part I: The Bucks


Being a college student in Milwaukee has its perks, especially for sports fans. Now, while some may have brought their hometown teams to college, others (myself included) may have warmed up to the Cream City teams without knowing much about them. If this is the case for you, then these pointers can help you start enjoying Milwaukee basketball without looking and sounding like a bandwagon fan.

Quick History


Here are some facts about the Bucks that can make you feel more knowledgeable about the franchise:

- They have only won one championship (back in 1971) and have lost one NBA Finals series (1974) (Land of Basketball)

- They have only had one* MVP-caliber player in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (#33) during the 1971, 1972, and 1974 seasons (Land of Basketball)

- Other Notable Players Include: Oscar Robertson (#1), Sidney Moncrief (#4), Jon McGlocklin (#14) and Ray Allen (#34) (Land of Basketball)

*Giannis Antetokounmpo may win the MVP award this year

Gear Up


This one is a bit of a no-brainer. Wearing team's colors or spirit wear is a must, especially if you're going to a game. Most items like hats and t-shirts are perfectly acceptable, and these are great if you're not trying to break the bank. Buying your gear from a sporting goods store will usually be cheaper than buying them from the team store (the main one of which is located in Fiserv Forum). Most online stores like NBA.com, Fanatics, Fansedge, and sometimes even the team's online store will have sales on sports gear, so getting a good deal on team wear is always a plus!

A Word of Caution: Jerseys

All three of these players are not part of the 2018-2019 roster and #77 and #3 have been reused by current players Ersan Ilyasova (#77) and George Hill (#3)


If you're willing to go the extra mile, buying a jersey can really get you into locked in and pumped for the live action. However, it should be kept in mind that official Nike NBA jerseys range from $110-$250, so they definitely are an investment. While there are other options available like the FastBreak jerseys by Fanatics, they are a simpler (still official) knockoff of the Nike jerseys. Also; beware buying sale jerseys. There are usually three reasons why jerseys are ever on sale (aside from a storewide sale): a player is injured, a player doesn't play much and is about to be traded, or a player has been traded. While there is nothing wrong with having the jersey of a player who went on to another team (like Kareem and Allen), you are not exactly going to get brownie points for wearing a Jabari Parker or a Thon Maker jersey anytime soon.

Know The Current Squad
