    11 Books You Need to Take Along on Your Next Beach Day

    When I reach for summer reading material, I like books that are highly entertaining, a little ridiculous and take me on an adventure. Below, I found twelve books that meet the criteria!

  • “The Perks of Being A Wallflower” Trailer Is Finally Released!

    “The Perks of Being A Wallflower” Trailer Is Finally Released!

    Watson is fabulous with her American accent and ethereal gazes. Miller totally won me over by pulling off casual flamboyance. And obviously I love whatever Lerman decides to do in his life.

    If You Like Harry Potter…You’ll Love These Books

    Ever since the last Harry Potter book was published, the series has left a gaping hole in reader’s hearts. We’re all lost without the tales of Harry and company and the last movie is making us feel a little nostalgic. So what’s left to read?

  • Saturday Read: Abandon, by Meg Cabot [Giveaway]

    Saturday Read: Abandon, by Meg Cabot [Giveaway]

    Summer is here (or almost here for some of you!) and that means breaking out the fun, beachy reads. You know - chick lit, young adult, etc. Who can focus on a tough read when they're at the beach and there is so much scenery to take in?

It's not that they're not good (on the contrary, they've been great!), it's just that they really weigh down my beach bag and I needed a book that didn't leave deep, red grooves in my shoulder. I searched my local library high and low for a short, YA read. And I found a fantastic one!

    Saturday Read: Upcoming Summer Reads

    Summer has just begun for me and besides working 35 hours a week (doing the best student job on the planet, might I add), I've been devouring book after book. Science, YA, dystopian - I've got it all. However, despite my plethora of reading material, I often find myself trolling Amazon.com, looking for new releases that I can't wait to get my hands on.

  • Saturday Read: Paper Towns by John Green

    Saturday Read: Paper Towns by John Green

    Anyone who reads the Saturday Read knows that I am a closet teen fiction reader. It's so honest and spirited that I can't help but devour teen fiction after teen fiction. And, as I have said before, a teen read is a nice way to take your mind off of your school textbook
