September usually marks the beginning of a new school term, and I honestly didn’t think I’d be going to school this year, but life has a way of driving on my plans with a bulldozer.
For a couple of weeks, and against all my survival instincts, I swear, I’ve been really interested in a course with the University of Toronto that’s only available in class, and I decided to scream: I’M HERE, DEBTS, FIRE AWAY!
So I’ll be moving to Toronto from October to December to attend a course about the publishing business and I really don’t know what to expect, and I feel like I forgot how to get excited for the beginning of a school term, so I’m just downright freaking out.
That’s why I decided to browse through my bookshelves and reread a couple of books that I remember reading and thinking, “I kinda wanna go to school, now.” You know, just the regular, nerdy-feel-good books.
Here’s my top five:
1. Moxie, Jennifer Mathieu
This book made me want to go back to high-school and actually get involved, in like, stuff. Because in high-school all I wanted to do was sleep and blend in, which is like, my biggest regret.
2. The Name of the Wind, Patrick Rothfuss
I’m actually still not done reading this book because (insert lame excuse here). I mean, I started like two years ago, something is definitely wrong with me. But I’m at this part where the MC goes to the University, and it just makes me want to study my brains out until I’m superior to everyone else and I can finally conquer the universe.
3. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Jenny Han
Because I really just want to Lara Jean the hell out of my agenda. Like I would scrapbook every page and be organized and everything. And not be so effin lazy with how I dress. But let’s be real. That’s going to last 20 seconds, tops.
4. Anna and the French Kiss, Stephanie Perkins
BECAUSE IT MAKES ME WANNA STUDY ABROAD OR AT LEAST IN ANOTHER CITY WHICH I’LL BE DOING IN OCTOBER OH MY GOD I’M NOT READY.
5. Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling
Because of course what would this list be without Hogwarts?
There would be no point to this list.
What about you guys?
