What's On My Summer Reading List? These Books

Lots of books, that's what.

What's On My Summer Reading List? These Books
Guilia Bertelli

I’ve found that I read way more in the summer than I do during the school year. I mean, it makes sense. I don’t have school, work, and homework, so I have a lot more time for reading. I have bookshelves upon bookshelves of books that I haven’t read yet and I’m getting ready to head to camp for four weeks so I will have plenty of time to read! Here’s a look at what I’m bringing with me to camp and what’s on my summer reading list.

1. “YES: My Improbable Journey to the Main Event of WrestleMania” by Bryan Danielson and Craig Tello

I started reading this one of the plane ride home from Disney last week and I fell in love almost instantly. Daniel Bryan has always been one of my favorite wrestlers and his story is so inspiring that I knew I had to learn all I could about his career. I’m so excited to learn more!

2. “The Haunted Mansion: Imagineering a Disney Classic” by Jason Surrell

Speaking of Disney, The Haunted Mansion is probably my favorite ride in all of Disney property. My brother found this book during our trip and I knew right away that I wanted to read it. I am excited to learn more about the history of this ride (because hi, history nerd here) and I’m excited to bring a little bit of my love for Disney to my adventures this summer!

3. “Red Queen” by Victoria Aveyard

I was recommended this book by my friends about a year ago now and I still haven’t read it. I know, I’m sorry. I love mysteries and suspense books and this one definitely fits into that category. It’s loosely based on ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and has that classic ‘Once Upon A Time’ feel. (RIP OUAT)

4. “Sisterhood of the Squared Circle” by Pat Laprade and Dan Murphy

Women’s sports, and specifically Women’s wrestling, has always interested me. When I saw some female WWE Superstars hyping up this book on social media, it immediately got my attention. I am so intrigued to read about the history of Women's wrestling and to see just how far it has come!

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
