College Books – Where to Start?

College Books – Where to Start?
  • Opening Intro -

    Anybody in college would like a break from the hustle and bustle of course after course.

    Where do most people turn when they need a break?

    Books of course! But the real question is: what to read?


The answer lies within what you like to read. Someone who likes the style of one writer might hate the style of another. It’s been a long road to get where you are and quite frankly, you don’t have the time to go through the trial and error of finding your perfect author. And that is exactly why you’ve come here. Here we will uncover five books that are common and most popular in today’s time and age, as well as some classics.

“Selp Helf” written by Miranda Sings

Miranda Sings is an extremely popular YouTuber who posts videos with life advice. Posting them in a fun and funny format tends to be her forte. And for the first time ever, she’s put her words down on paper in her book. She offers life advice in every aspect of life; from how to get a boyfriend, to how to get out of homework in an amazingly unheard of style. It’s definitely a great read to de-stress with and to make you and your friends have a good laugh.

“Ash” written by Malinda Lo

This is perhaps the most interesting take on the classic Cinderella fairy tale that’s been published within the past twenty years. Not only does Malinda Lo write in a completely unique, easy to follow style, she also takes a wonderful girl and creates an entirely new world. The mysterious Woods will draw your curiosity in as will her relationship with an unexpected character. It’s a fast read that’s easy to put down and pick up at a later date – perfect for college students with busy schedules.

“Cinder” written by Marissa Meyer

A new favorite among young adult fiction is the Lunar Chronicles. The entire series is loosely based off of old time fairy-tales, the first being based off Cinderella. It takes place past World War IV, after an entire colony of people on the moon live there for generations. It’s commonly referred to as the steam punk version of fairy-tales where medical advances in the book are logical and explainable. The series is followed by “Scarlett”, the spin off of Little Red Riding Hood,

“Cress” is based off of Repunzel, and “Fairest” which gives more information about the history of the queen of the moon. Soon to release is “Winter” to be reminiscent of Snow White.

“The Lost Voices” written by Sarah Porter

The most popular take on mermaids yet, “The Lost Voices” is by far an amazingly written coming of age novel. It’s continued with “Waking Storms” as well as “The Twice Lost”. Mermaids exist in this fantasy world where a war is brewing. It brings forth the issues of environmental dangers and pollution. It’s becoming a favorite coming-of-age novel for all those who just need to find their voice.

“Wuthering Heights” written by Emily Bronte

Perhaps one of the most dreaded subjects by many students of all ages is the classical novel. Rest assured, this is a delightful read, one of forbidden love and superb hatred. It covers the many extremes of emotional swings and marvelously displays the consequences of hearing only a part of a conversation and reacting to what was heard rather than the full story. It’s a tragedy that’s impressive for the time period in which it was written. The audio version is unlike any other audiobook out there – if anything else, you can listen to it on your commutes or even in between classes. You won’t want to put it down.

All in all, there are several options for students out there, both quick reads that can be put down at any time and reads that you won’t want to put down. Hopefully one of these makes it onto your list of must-reads.
