10 Books You Should Read This Month

I love reading books in the same way that Rory Gilmore or Hermione Granger enjoys reading. In other words, I am an avid reader, especially when I was in High School. Unfortunately, in college free time is not something I always have as much anymore, but I still make it a point to go and find a good book to immerse myself in. Here are my top 10 book recommendations for this month:
