5 Books To Read This January

Because you know that you need to watch less Netflix.

5 Books To Read This January

Every year, I renew my resolution to read more but lose steam halfway through the year. Here's all of the books that I have read recently that have to be added to your to be read list.

1. Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng

The Paper Trail Diary

Centered around the death of a half white and half Asian daughter in 1970s Ohio, Everything I Never Told You is a gripping story about the unspoken tensions between family members.

2. Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone

Barnes & Noble

Sam is a young girl struggling with OCD that begins to find herself when she joins a poetry club. What I loved about this book was that it did not solely address mental health as its primary issue, but focused on Sam's layers as a person.

3. The Handmaid's Tale

You've always heard that the book is better than the movie (or in this case TV show) so why not try the written version of your favorite dystopian show.

2. Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

The Book Trail

Mia Warren is an artist and single mother who moves her and her daughter Pearl every few months after she finishes a project. When they rent a house from the Richardsons, trouble arises when Pearl becomes friends with the four Richardson children.

5. Meet Cute

Good Reads

Every cute romcom on Netflix has a meet cute and I gush every time I watch them. So why not read a book full of short stories that include just that? Each short story is by a different author that brings something new to the classic trope.

I hope these books give you the inspiration to start your year on a good (literary) note! :) Happy reading friends!

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.
