10 Spring Break Reads and their Collegiette Type

Spring Break is now upon us and I think it’s safe to say everyone is ready for some R&R. You’re exhausted, over worked, and quite frankly just reading to get off Grounds. Whether you’re heading to the sunny beaches of Florida, exploring New York City, or just relaxing at home, I’ve compiled a list of the top ten books that will help you unwind this Spring Break. They’re beach worthy, airport worthy, and so brilliant they’ll transport you to a world outside the academic realm. It’s time to set aside school reading, and get back to the place where reading used to be enjoyable and memorable. It’s been a New Year’s resolution of mine to read more outside of school, and these books definitely make that goal easier. You’ll find inspiring stories and challenging narratives that will make you read faster towards the end. No matter your travel plans, pick up one of these ten books and enjoy reading, for fun, again.
