In all of my experience, the first few days of school has never been fun…I always dread going to school.. ALWAYS! Especially High School.. College was a bit different but still.. it was always Awkward, especially when you are starting at a new school…You aren’t familiar with the area, no friends (Yet), and if you were anything like me you never quite fit in with the other kids. For me High School will always be awkward… But the one thing that I will forever be grateful for is the books I read…the ones about other people who felt just as awkward and boy crazy as I was. I remember thinking that I wasn’t alone in my thoughts because these people I was reading about were going through similar struggles and that truly helped me feel comfortable with myself and school. Everyone has friend drama.. everyone has crushes and thinks about sex… Everyone stresses about grades and such. I found comfort in the pages of books. So here are some recommendations (From myself & my Book Friends) to read during the school year.
*These are in NO particular order.. completely random hahaha that would be too much work.*
