2. Heat Rises by Richard Castle
3. The Fellowship of the Rings by JRR Tolkien

How Cliche: But Seriously Every Girl Should Read This

by HoLLIs “Since attending college this fall I haven’t had all the leisure time in the world, but all school studies aside I had to read this book. The book is called Unbearable Lightness A Story of Loss and Gain, by Portia DeRossi. Its possibly one of the best true stories ever. I’m not the best explainer in the world but its basically about her struggles with anorexia, bulimia, and her sexuality. I enjoyed the book because it was well written, sweet and short…maybe a 260 page turner–give or take. There you go just seriously check it out you wont be sorry.”

Have you read this book? Share your thoughts.

Some Things You Wish You Knew In Your 20s

by ZZZ

“Hey everyone,

So I’ve been seeing all these lists around about “Things I wish I knew when I was 20/in my 20s” and I thought it would be interesting to see what everyone’s experiences have been like and what advice they would give to themselves (or anyone else) at 20 (or in their 20s).

Some ideas from other people’s lists have been things like “everything will be okay”, “things aren’t as bad as they seem”, “it’s okay if you have no idea what you’re doing”, and then there are advice things like “don’t be so quick to date” or “don’t get caught up in mob-mentality and do things just because it’s what everyone else is doing”.

Have fun! 

What advice would you give your younger self? Discuss!

That’s all for now. Until next time, keep giggling.
