  • Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe (made me sad, really made me wonder about missionaries in Africa and other parts of the world - how they were instrumental in making "things fall apart" for Okonkwo, the unstoppable warrior who couldn't fight against their influence. Well-written)
  • 1984 by George Orwell (captivating, lots of Portal and other dystopian novel vibes, but obviously one of the originals. Chilling concepts like "newspeak" where the people will eventually not be able to explain justice, love, or fight back against the Party. So good.)
  • The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemmingway (reminded me so much of BWCA and that struggle to survive/meet your goals, i loved the relationship btwn the little boy and the "old man" - the dialogue felt strange but nice.)
  • Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein (lots of thought-provoking poems, others were just WEIRD haha but i still liked them. Some of my favorites: (in journal)
  • Travels with Charley - In Search of America by John Steinbeck
  • Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan (i loved the diversity in the book, i really shipped magnus x alex which caught me off guard, a rompin' plot per usual)
  • Trials of Apollo: Book 1 by Rick Riordan (I have already read this book but it was just as good the second time around! Apollo is hilarious & i love nico and will)
