Man oh man, I’m leaving soon. It’s wild stuff going on here. I’m going to turn in my FINAL paper soon and let me tell you, I have done nothing but stress about it because it’s my final paper, my final ever paper. Talk about crazy stuff. I’m so close to the finish line, so close to the ending of school. God I’m relieved. Sometimes I feel like going to college just put my life on hold, it did, but without the knowledge I gained I wouldn’t be able to do the things I’ve always wanted.
Honestly, the only thing that has kept me sane is the out of class reading that I did for class because I’m not one of those people who drowns in school work. I can’t be that person, it’s too stressful and then I don’t feel like I’ve done my best.
Anyway, since school is wrapping up, check out this weekly reading list right here.

“An unthinkable betrayal threatens everyone Rory loves in the third installment of our dark, thrilling Shadowlands series from New York Times best-selling author Kate Brian.
Rory Miller didn’t just fall in love with Tristan Parrish. She fell in love with the idea of forever. He was the one who told her the truth about her existence in Juniper Landing: that her mortal life is over, and she will now spend eternity on the island, helping others in limbo move on.
But like Juniper Landing, a bright island with dark secrets, Tristan is too good to be true. The mysterious, heartbreakingly beautiful boy Rory thought she knew is responsible for unthinkable evil-sending good souls to the Shadowlands in order to get himself a second chance at life on Earth. He has already claimed Rory’s friend Aaron and her own father, but when Tristan sends her sister, Darcy, to the Shadowlands, too, Rory decides to take matters into her own hands. She will do anything to save her family, even if it means going to hell and back.”
“Blair, Serena, Nate, Dan, and Vanessa went off to live their lives. Now they’re coming home for the holidays. A lot can change in a few months… but some things never do.
It finally happened: we went to college. We started over. No one knows who we’ve coveted, what we scored on the SATs, where our parents live, or when we became debaucherous. We’ve learned new things, made new friends, and maybe even met the loves of our lives. We’ve changed. Or at least, some of us have. But old habits are hard to break-especially when faced with your former besties and former flames. With everyone back in the city for the holidays, this break is guaranteed to be filled with makeups, breakups, and shakeups. Lucky for you, I’m here to report all the scandal as it happens. Let the games begin!
You know you love me,
