• Required Reading for School

    I recently saw Alexis from The Reading Addict do a post (which you can find here) discussing some books they had to read in school and if they enjoyed them or not. I really liked the idea behind this, so I thought it would be fun to share some of my required reading and some thoughts on them. What I Liked Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult Travels With Charley by John Steinbeck Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper…

I’ve organized this list by genres, so you can easily find books on your favorite subjects. This list will be updated regularly as I find more books. If you have any suggestions or recommendations of books to add, please let me know in a comment, or you can send it to me on Instagram, Twitter, or…

  • Worldwide Resources Masterlist

    This is a collection of resources where you can get educated on worldwide issues and ways you can help. On this list, there are books to read, movies and shows to watch, petitions, ways to donate, and more things you can do to help.

Last Updated: September 6, 2020 Getting Educated Books: This list is split up into two categories: nonfiction and fiction. Each book is hyperlinked to its Goodreads page so you can see a full summary and read reviews. I am also going to write another post on diversifying your…
