Books for College Students



Howdy! I haven't done a "What I'm Reading" post in a year! But if you know me, you know I love to read! I'm currently reading some books that are pretty fun reads for a college student.  I figured y'all may be interested in reading these so I'd give my review on them!


#Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso: Chance are by now you have definitely heard of #girlboss. If not the book than the Netflix original series no doubt! (can you believe they canceled it after 1 season?!) Anyways, I love this book so far. It's so empowering for any women going into business! Written by former CEO of NastyGal, Sophia Amoruso brings such a fun narrative to the table.  It's not an in your face feminist book either. Its main focus is how to rock at whatever career you're going after by being yourself and using your own unique quirks. The best way I can sum this book up is that it is the modern female version of How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie  (another great and classic book may I add- can you believe someone actually mocked me for reading that?!)


I Just Graduated Now What by Katherine Schwarzenegger: This book is awesome for anyone getting ready to graduate. It's a collection of interviews from people who have graduated college and their experience! I think it's a great read, especially for anyone not sure what they are going to do once the graduate! There is no one way your life has to go after you walk across that stage. Life is full of opportunities. 


My One Square Inch of Alaska by Sharon Short: This book is a cheesier read, but still really good. It meets the criteria of wanderlust, independence, and romance. Place in the 50s, Donna sets off on an adventure with her terminally ill little brother from Ohio to Alaska so he can see his one square inch he owns. If you want an easy, quick, enjoyable read I highly recommend this book! 


Let me know if you read any of these books, or if you have any book suggestions for me! Also be sure to check out my bookmark DIY for a cute placeholder for when you check these out!
