The Hate U Give

Firstly I have to say that this book should be read in every elementary school, it teaches such incredible lessons. It was a completely eye-opening book for a white woman like myself.

Bullet Journaling

I'm not going to get into how to bullet journal here, if you don't know what this latest craze is check out bulletjournal.com to get started!

I'm a stationary FANATIC! When this first showed up on Facebook as a Buzzfeed post I was immediately intrigued. Basically, Bullet Journaling is a to-do list, a planner, and a journal. 

Paper Towns

I would like to start off by saying I read this book over about 8 hours. An "easy read" doesn't seem like the proper term but I guess it is also classified as a young adult novel and I'd like to think my reading skill is above that...

The Painted Girls

Usually I go to the book store with a purpose, I know what I want to get and I get it. In the past year or so I have allowed myself to browse more and I have come across a couple gems by accident. "The Painted Girls" by Cathy Marie Buchanan is definitely one of them. I am only about half way through but I needed to write about it. Now I'm not saying you need to be a ballet dancer to understand this book but at times it certainly helps. Even I had trouble visualizing the dance combinations and steps written on the pages before me. However, understanding these steps are not imperative to understanding the story.

The Help

It has been such a long time since I have been this into a book. Maybe because I feel so passionate about the topic of Racism and how I hate it so much. If it made a difference to me what colour people's skin was I wouldn't have made friends with so many beautiful people or learned about so many amazing cultures or places.
